The article is pure speculation of a journalist, Laureen, it doesn't mean anything. But yes, it will take very poor performances of Llodra to kick him out of the team. He has priority over the entire French tennis for Forget (there was an article about Forget in L'Equipe last year with the beautiful title "Gaga de Mika" = "crazy about Llodra").
Gilles seemed indeed to talk again about the spirit between the four guys only when he said that (we all get along so well, no jealousy between us, blablabla), I had the same reaction as you by listening to him.
I wonder how true that is? When Matts Wilander was commentating on AO he said that when he coached PHM, the competition between the French guys was really fierce and that the only thing that mattered was who was French number 1. Other rankings didn't matter to them.
