Re: Dc 2011

No one wants to play a clay DC match right before IW and Miami (including Gasquet and Llodra), at least Simon admits it but Jo, last I heard from him just a few days ago was he felt he was improving his play and no mention of injury.

Well time to see if Richard can step up to the plate. And who in the world is going to play the second singles? Guess it's time to see how much some Frenchies really care about DC.

Re: Dc 2011

I can see most people here hate gasquet but have no choice this time since he is the only one who can actually win on clay, Simon and Llodra are not serious options.

Re: Dc 2011

I think the team will be:

Llodra, Gasquet, Simon & Benneteau

Maybe Simon will play now?

If Koubek comes we have our chances Julian Knowles has a new injury ? Peya or Marach for doubles maybe.

The good news is that Richard's shoulder is OK

Re: Dc 2011

Would it be churlish of me to point out that Gilles has as many titles on clay as Jo, Gael, Richie, Mika and Benny put together? Yep, thought so

Good stat
but it's all the more puzzling that his clay game has abandoned him the past 2 years. Maybe it'll come back at just the right moment for him to get his first DC win, I hope, seems like he'll need it next week.

He often used to say his favourite surface was clay but I never believed him

that was in 2008, was it? while 3 out of his 5 titles by end of 2008 were clay, it was on his ATP profile then, but it's not there anymore.
Some posters here on MTF still think he is a claycourter .

Re: Dc 2011

Btw, Benny withdrawn from Delray Beach, it states in the draw sheet that it's due to Davis Cup. He probably is truly the only one who's keen on this tie, too bad he hasn't win a match in single this year, so he'll probably stick to double, not that we didn't know that already. I guess Mika will join him soon enough to practice .
