What is sad and frustrating, for me, is that despite he hasn't been fit for the last 4 months, he still managed to pass every R1 of every tournament he played (but Istanbul where he retired). And since Segovia (which I mixed up with Valencia above
) this R1 would usually have been against a decent player (whether they be Gicquel, Ebden or Lacko), at least better than the one whom he would eventually lose to. He just couldn't win matches after matches, back to back. But well hope you're all right about his moving better and hope it's a good sign.
Nice to know he loves your country.
French players in football or tennis?
Good response anyway.
He's a strange man. A Frenchman who loves Belgium AND England.
Quite unique, I think.
Tennis players ! The interviewer's argument was that he remembers equipment companies were fighting to have Nico under their wings when he was 16/17. They seem to know each other quite well.
Nico agrees that young players are training in the best conditions (heated courts,etc) but they're maybe be too good, you need to break this comfort and put yourself in danger. And you usually expect them to perform too early (it's classic, everywhere, I guess).
Their compatriot played a great match but some of them don't appreciate his effort?What are those thinking and smoking? :retard:
I meant people in general, not the athletes.
I've read thinks on French forums like "worthless but proud", "he will say again he's not recovered from the match" (which he's never said), "has had a big neck since his achievement 'losing R1 at Wim'", "stupid high ambitions" and things I'd better not translate here. Sad comments.
