Re: Videos Thread
I just watched it and he is quite awesome again, his smile looks gorgeous on TV!
About Bercy, he says it's the best possible surface for him and clearly a major goal of him this season. They show pics of Gilles, so he says with a little smile he will do his very best to catch up with him and pass him.
He talks about how tough it was for him after the AO to deal with the Tsongamania. He relied a lot on his family and his old friends to get over it. He's very different on the court and off the court, he loves being unnoticed and kept in peace in real life, so it wasn't easy at all for him.
He talks about his knee injury, says the trip in Congo helped him to put things into proportion too, to appreciate how lucky he is even if people sometimes mean he's unlucky to have all these injuries.
And then they show a video of him argueing with the chair umpire in Lyon, which is a bit stupid imo because it's not common for him. He means they (the players) often see better than the line judges what happened and he was right on that one. And what he said was perfectly OK, no insults - they're not allowed to curse on the court or they are immediately fined, tennis has been quite "sanitized" lately - "unfortunately". He's asked if it's normal to use "tu" instead of "vous" with the chair umpires like in the video ("tu" means you're on familiar terms with somebody) and he answers it was special here because he knows that chair umpire well.
That's it, I think.
