Re: Clay season 2008

They don't have his post-match interview in English on the tournament website? Or am I looking at the wrong place again?

His team points out he lost a bit of his focus in the 4th set and it possibly cost him a 5th set (which is too bad according to Champion because he had the impression that Gaël was physically stronger).
And it's true he started to pull off more of a show yesterday than in his previous matches, throwing his racquet, diving all the time, etc. - Champion and Barbarin were always pointing at their head when the cameras showed them in the stands to tell him to not lose this concentration, not to leave this sort of "bubble" he was in during the tournament. Champion means he was less into his match than against Ferrer.

He was trying so hard to control his real nature during the tournament... He looked like a different Gaël, he always said in interviews he tries to be like a robot.
