Re: Summer hardcourt season 2008

An interview, but it's pretty much the same. It sounds a bit more positive than the audio interview though:
It was a serious match from him, very constant.
The outside courts are much slower than the Center court and the showcourts. The balls are bouncing high too, it's not easy to hit winners, so his tactics (varying the pace a lot and slowing down the game) have been effective enough so far.
Hanescu played really well when he broke back at 5-4 and Gaël didn't panic, just thought he had missed a first chance and he would have more.
He doesn't feel a lot of pressure.
In the match against Almagro he called the trainer 2-3 times because his calf was cramping. He still feels it, but it's OK.

Last match on Center court tomorrow!
-> Livestream + no need to wake up so early anymore!
