Re: France vs Romania

They should have nominated Mergea for the doubles.

I really looks like a 5-0 for France.

Re: France vs Romania

Why won't Gael Monfils play for France he surely deserves a spot is there any racial thing going on there?

France let Yannick Noah play so I wouldn't think it was a racial thing.

You think he is top 2 in singles for France?

Gasquet and Grosjean deserve to play singles, Llodra is great in doubles and Clement is a good partner for Llodra and number 1 substitute for singles at the same time.

Could there be a better team for France? Santoro could also take Clement's part, but that's all.

Re: France vs Romania

Forget doesn't seem to like Monfils very much, but it has nothing to do with the fact that he is black.

You have to think in a long-term perspective too, JMG, many people think indeed it was a good occasion to have Monfils play his first DC match.
I know he isn't very reliable yet, but he might be a good DC player for the future, it would have been interesting to see how he is doing (with the help of a coach during the matches, he loves this kind of crowds, he gets along very well with Gasquet...)

(Grosjean isn't clearly top 2 either in singles anyway, the French rankings are atm: Gasquet - Clément - Benneteau - Grosjean - Gicquel - Monfils - Simon - Mathieu... Only Gasquet is a no-brainer here.)

Re: France vs Romania

Imo Grosjean is by far better than Benneteau, Gicquel, Simon and probably Monfils. I've only seen ugly matches from Monfils so far. Maybe Mathieu would be good enough to replace him, but only if he had a new brain.

Obviously you don't know what you're talking about..."racial" is a word that shouldn't still be used in the 21th century. There are no race(s) within the human race as it's proven scientifically for years...And that's coming from a mixed person...

Second, he was the first youngster to be selected by Forget (before Gasquet was), and has already been selected 2 times...

Yet, despite the fact than i'm one of the rare fan of Monfils i understand that non-selection seing how he has played recently... Moreover, he's been a bit immature, treating coaches like kleenex, etc... So that's needed for him to refocus and to learn his lessons...But it was one of the best chances to try him though, i admit.

BTW, i'm sure you don't know that since 3 centuries, 4.2 millions of the French population is black, yet they have the Frenchest names, culture, customs etc...ever. Like Gaël.
