Merci beacoupt for this very interesting article Marine.
Hmm... Can I also put here some articles in Russian?
Today it's been press conference. Nothing really new. Davydenko's still not ok with his hand but he's going to play the whole match on Friday. 20-years old Teimuraz is champion of Russia - 2004...
Both captains have said that they have their own tactics and some time to decide who will play in singles. Richard's very happy that he can play in team of his country, he likes the city and the stadium and think that he'll have really interesting and intense match. Paulo's said that he's not afraid of Youzhny and so has no psychological problems
. About court Micka, who has been a little bit nervous (about the balls and surface) during the training, has said that frenchies're get used to great clay of RG and it won't be so easy for them to play on this russian strange clay. "But we have no choice, we need play". Arnaud... !!!! He's come to the press conference with "scalp lock" (why there's always no photos on russian sites?!... ) on his hairs And he's said that this his hair style means that the team is ready for battles - and the symbol of that is Gallic rooster.
And Forget has said that Russia without Safin maybe is not a concrete favorite of this tie but really dangerous and strong team. And he's also addes then that he thinks, Grosjean regrets about his dicision
So tomorrow the players have training day. And the sortition of match is in 1pm om Thursday.
- the only photo I've found. But I'm going to watch sport news on TV and maybe I'll get some caps then if it'll be something interesting.
Some other news, non-official (but from people who's been in the press conference).
After the press conference finished all frenchies've gone out, but journalists've stopped him and asked a hundreds of questions. Poor Richi was so surprised.
And about our special Arnaud. After the words about his new hair style is symbol of rooster he added: "Really I like very much this feeling: when you put gel on your hairs and begin to create something on your head, even don't know what the final result will be".
Somebody then told that frenchies were lost to the press conference not because of traffic jams but because of Arnaud whom they can't pull away from mirrow...
P.S. I also will be in Moscow since 14th July. But that doesn't mean that I'll be in DC. But despite of everything I'm going to.
