The Village must feel like heaven on earth for Gaël:
«J’ai croisé un basketteur, je ne vous dirais pas qui, et je suis allé le voir pour lui dire que j’étais un grand fan, explique Gaël Monfils. Et il m’a répondu: mais moi aussi, je suis un super fan de toi.»

"I saw a basket-ball player, I won't tell you who it was, and I went to tell him I'm such a huge fan of his. And he answered: 'but I'm a big fan of you too'."
Hanescu next, Gaël leads 2-1 in the h2h (and the loss doesn't really count, that was a pure tank in the semi-final of Bucharest, not Gaël's finest hour! I remember Hanescu had a few harsh words about him after the match too. ^^)
