No, I didn't get a chance for photos. I'm too careful, I should've asked straight out for a photo or autograph from Nico.

He was leaving the practice courts and no one else knew who he was. We made eye-contact but I didn't say hi.

Thanks VolandriFan for your sharing. I absolutely agree that that Nico is so much cute in person. I think it's something about his personality that's attractive ... Love him.

My experience during Thailand Open teaches me not to afraid or awkward of asking players for what you want but just do it politely & properly. For Nico, he's reachable, friendly & kind. If you talk to him or ask for any favour, he'll just respond to them with his happy face - I think he loves being with fans!

So next time you meet Nico, just grab him & take some photos to show us. Or if possible, ask him for a hug or a kiss (on a cheek ), I don't think he'll refuse. And that's what I call properly!

I'm a guy, so I probably think Nico wouldn't like a hug or kiss. In fact, he'd most likely punch me out! I don't really know what his personality is like because I've heard a few mixed things. Him and Julien seem like nice enough guys, but they've had a few issues with other doubles teams, haven't they?

Next time I see him, I will ask for a photo. Thanks

Re: Nicolas Mahut

Hello again, this time I need some help from friends who know French for the summary of Nico's video interview: http://video.eurosport.fr/tennis/ope...vid61674.shtml Anybody? Pleaseeeee ... I particularly want to know about the bag stuff. Thank you very much.

And million thanks to Ome for your guide about the website. Otherwise I won't get a chance to see Nico this cute & lively.

Best luck for Nico in tomorrow's match against Davydenko. So tough but hope he can do it! Allez Nico! Bonne Chance!

Don't worry about it, I wouldn't mind kissing Nico either way.

If I recall correctly, they had a fight with Melo and another player following a doubles match. I think it errupted into a fist fight.

Julien, a jerk? Can you share something jerky he's done with us? Maybe he treats the people close to him well, just not the fans. I don't think Nico would be friends with an asshole.

Who's Going?

Therer are actually so many stories...He was so mean to all the staff during the tournament, no smile, no "hello, no "thank u", one day my boss and i were watching a video they've shown on local tv, about the tournament...we were watching it on internet, but we put it about 2-3 times in a row because we were always interrupted by players who wanted something....Julien was in the office, reading newpaper...and he said in a reallly shitty way "ok now, how many times are u gonna watch this?" i was !!!
And all this happen in 2005...before he became famous, before the 1/4 final in Roland garros...I can't imagine how he is now....
I'm not supposed to say that, but all the players from abroad told me how arrogant french players are and the the N°1 is Julien...they really dont like him....and it's not only 1-2 players who said that...

Thanks for telling me about him. Now I'll know never to support him again in the future. What I think is, out of all of the players, most are decent people. Julien must be an exception to that and I have to say that I'm really disappointed. In fact, he sounds like a complete asshole.

He is really...I'm sorry that u are disappointed....U were the one who gave info about GGL, i have to do something in returnThere are so many things, i saw him about 2-3 weeks after the tournament during another tournament. He was practicing with Nico. Right after the practice Nico came to me to say "hi" and Julien was looking at me, no "simle" of course and no "hello"....he was standing behind Nico and was waiting for him....I was again...During one week i was at his service, they won in doubles and right after not even a "hello", not asking for a "thank u" like all the players do but a "hello" c'mon!!!!!!Now i just don't care, he knows my face and when i see him...the way i look at him, i think he knows what i think!!!!!

I think he's really an exception...i never saw that...!!! Most of the players are nice, then i dont know about the top ranked players (i work for a challenger)...but most of them are nice and if not it's just because they are nervous about their match or just not in a good mood....but i truly think Julien is the most hated player!!!! But to be honnest french players dont have a good image...all the players say one thing about french players : ARROGANT!! i cant tell u how many times i've heard this word from players to qualify french players!!!
