Re: News thread

Yeah, I saw in L'Equipe today that they were saying 15.35 instead of 15.55, sorry.
Tulasne always is quite excessive in his statements. ^^

I have the Monfils one, I can try to convert it, but I'm always afraid they delete my Youtube account if I upload the whole thing.
I uploaded the first 2 minutes on a new account as a test the other day and it hasn't been removed yet:

Tutu was very cute too, saying that it was nearly love between them I think the beginning was about his junior years and the fact nobody believed in him except for a few people.

I can't wait to see it whole The Monfils one a few months ago was totally awesome (I'm actually trying to put it on youtube but I have trouble changing it to a normal .avi...) I really like those reports. Thanks for mentionning Gilles was going to be inside, Truc
thanx Keijan, great report

You're welcome ! I really didn't say much, I should have recorded it ! But the interview was much more interesting and insightful ^^ At some point he was talking about the Masters and how nobody believed he would come alive of his group : "it's good that you came to this point, but there is no way you can qualify for the semis !" And he said to himself "we'll see if I'm not going to qualify, bande de nazes" (how do you translate that, "you bunch of jackass ?" ) He had so many funny expressions ^^
I really like those reports, because you can really feel what it means to be a pro player, to wake up every morning to practice and to go through times where nobody believes in you, not even yourself. You touch their reality

They even delete your account ? My, what a pretty stupid move ! Everyone is saying how great their reports are and they don't let anyone watch it. I mean, we're not hurting anyone nor claiming what they did as ours, it's more like we're making free advertising for them Bande de nazes
That Gaël one.... I think it's because of this vid that I became so attached to him. He was so touching and lost. I'm so happy he went through those difficult times and stands where he is now, crazy hair or not and same for Gillou, of course !

I am being picky, but in this context, I would say "bunch of losers"!

Yes, they delete accounts, Keijan. I just posted some of the Monfils videos in his forum, we'll see if they allow them. (You don't need to convert them, I uploaded the *.flv files.)

Re: News thread

In Le Parisien today:
Quote:
De retour de l’Open de tennis d’Australie, Gilles Simon consacrera toute sa journée de demain aux médias : séances photos pour le magazine « Men’s Health » en vue du numéro d’avant Roland-Garros et pour le célèbre studio photos Harcourt, interview à Orange Sport et participation au « Moscato Show », à 18 heures sur RMC Info. Cette journée médiatique devait se terminer sur le plateau du « Grand Journal » de Michel Denisot sur Canal +. Mais après avoir reçu hier les handballeurs champions du monde et aujourd’hui Michel Desjoyeaux, vainqueur du Vendée Globe, l’animateur vedette de la chaîne cryptée a préféré différer la venue du numéro un français.
He will have a media day again tomorrow: photo shooting for "Men's Health" and at the Harcourt studio and then he will be on the Moscato Show again ^^ - why always this annoying show?
He was also supposed to be on "Le Grand Journal", but they cancelled in last minute again because they already had the handball team and it would be too much sport in one week - last time he was cancelled because of a swimmer.

Re: News thread

I had completely forgotten about the Moscato Show. Moscato just announced him tonight after Tony Parker, but I missed the first hour, I don't know if he already said anything?
It's on http://www.rmc.fr/# - but there should be a podcast later.

Re: News thread

Boring, don't even bother to listen to the podcast.
He talked about the Nadal match again, then he was asked about Noah's possible return in DC (he just said again he has never talked to Noah in his whole life, so what is he supposed to say?), he'll leave for Rotterdam on Sunday, he needs to take 4-5 days off between tournaments - not so much to recover physically because that's not a problem for him, but mentally, to take his mind off tennis. Some questions about the Davis Cup, as usual, he said there isn't any competition between them, they really want to win as a team and send the 2 best players at that time, he will be completely fine if he's not one of them.
And Moscato asked him to tell a story about his time in Australia, so he explained he saved somebody from drowning in Perth. It's quite a coincidence it happened to him as he goes to the beach twice a year only. He was there with Tulasne and Quétin, they saw a guy unconscious and drowning and got him back to the beach before the rescuers arrived. Of course Moscato asked him if he also gave the guy the kiss of life, but he didn't.

Re: News thread

You're right, the interview itself was fine, I've read too many interviews of him in Melbourne and already knew everything he said tonight (except the Perth story), so it was quite boring then. But that's my problem, not his.

I remember an article in L'Equipe saying he was a good swimmer when he was young - but he slipped one day at the swimming-pool, broke the two front teeth and gave up on swimming then.
