Re: The Mathieu Montcourt rememberance thread. R.I.P.
Today, Villa Primrose won the French Interclubs and the captain Jean-Baptiste Perlant has paid homage to Mathieu during his speech : " Mathieu has been the moving spirit of the team during many years. He was with us for the first time in 2008 and he has given the team a new lease of life. It's for him that we really want win this trophy today ".
And Bernard Dupouy (Villa Primrose's president) added " A moment ago I have talked with his father ... The emotion was palpable. Mathieu has taken an active part in this magnificent adventure. "
Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo is an intruiging player. A complete nobody who near the age of 30 worked himself up to be a competitive claycourter (2006-2007), beating Ferrer at RG, leading Federer 5-1 in the final set in Masters Series tournament.
His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.
I wonder about Truc too sometimes, I've tried sending her a message on fb a while ago, but didn't get any response. Maybe I should check is she's still on there, cause I haven't heard anything in a while.
