Re: News thread

Well having seen those pictures I'm on the way to becoming a Gasquetaire ... think I'd need to see a few more. Maybe I'll pop over to the Gasquet forum! Hmm judging by the AO I'd say Gilles had an addiction to green M n M problem!

I suppose it's at least twice worse when it's Chocapics not to mention Chocapics + M&M's + video game, the world could crumble around him and he wouldn't move for an inch.

In my humble opinion, Richard is as lovable as Gillou (and Jo, and Gaël ) go go go Eimear

Chocapics = the not so healthy food he eats for breakfast?

Re: News thread

Maybe "freakin adorable" is indeed the word you're looking for to qualify Gasquet [/QUOTE]

I cant believe how adorable Richie looks here! Soo young, how long ago were these pics taken? I haven't ever seen them before either - nice find ppl
I dont think that Gilles has really changed much at all.
for the M & M's!

It's written on it, Metz 2005. You should really take a look at the website if you don't know the pics yet, it's awesome. Cécile also is the webmaster of www.jwtsonga.com, her websites are "essential" if you're interested in French tennis.

The URL doesn't work anymore for me, try this one:
http://tennistory2004.free.fr/

Like Fran said, it was in 2005, so four years from now. They were respectively 18 and 20 if I'm right

Yeah, the one Jo got so worried about back when they were living together because Gillou ate the whole package and then went to play a match

Re: News thread

I bump the old thread because I don't know where to post the news about his knee otherwise.
The French Tennis Mag always has a "Comment ça va?" rubric giving news about a player currently injured and this month it's about Gilles:


So, how are you?
Very well, even if it's never a good thing to be in this rubric. The knee is rather better than I thought. The medical images were looking rather better than after RG.

What's the problem exactly?
I have a quite old lesion in the patellar sinew and also an inflammation under the kneecap, a bit more into the leg, that's the part which hurts a lot. It's an area which takes a lot of time to heal up.

What are the possible treatments?
There's not much I can do, actually, because it's not a very vascular area. The treatments with cold or heat are no use because it's really deep in the leg.

What is your schedule now?
I'll take 2 weeks of complete rest and then I will start practicing gently to get ready for the 3 weeks in Asia. I will come back in Bangkok. After those 3 weeks, I'll see how the knee is doing.

The pain doesn't seem to be continuous?
Some days are tougher than others. Sometimes I can play completely normally, but it's a deceitful pain, it comes back out of the blue.

Re: News thread

For the French speakers, he was on the Moscato Show again on Monday:

Why does he like this show so much?
