Guy Forget about Richard...(and Paulo)

There was a very interesting interview today, in l'Equipe: Guy speaks about the fed cup, and about Richard's case !
I translated the part about guys:

In the men draw, Nadal made an impression again. What do you think about the fact Richard Gasquet plays challengers instead of coming to croos swords with the best players ?
- Richard lives through a difficult period, I regret it. If I would be his coach, I wouldn't had made this choice, not to let him to play Wimbledon and the OP. It's an error, because he needs experience of offensive tennis, on quick surfaces. NOt to play a grand slam, it's a pity, but 2..., he has been given bad advice. It's a pity because it's a very nice kid, very serious, with a great game, but he is losing time...

Do you think he needs a "real" coach, with high-nivel experience, with a new speech ?
- Yes, unconstitutionnally. But he is not the only ine who needs a real coach, french or stranger. For other players too, it's very important now, to made the good choices, and quickly. I just gie some idvice, but for example, I said my point of view to Paul-Henri Mathieu. It's important these youngs mind to their future. They should read Agassi !, Because, franckly, what he says is prodigious. I love the sentence I read in l'equipe magazine this week-end, "What it counts, it's not to impose ur tactic, it's to impose ur will". In Richard's case, it's exactly what he lacks. He has got all, except that.

!!

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Re: Guy Forget about Richard...(and Paulo)

has he ever thought of commentating? has he ever commentated before?

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs
