I feel like the level of hate is astoundingly high right now and I have also the feeling that it's not going to stop before a long time with each new success our young man will bring before us :devil:

I salute those of us who are struggling with the haters out there (often in disguise though :devil: ) , but if you just want to celebrate the birth of a champion, this thread is for you :

i heard today from thierry tuslane(simon coach) that jo and gilles will take the same plane today to go to shanghai.

OMG 2 french players playing the TMC, it didnt happen since yannick noah/henri leconte in 1986!:yeah:

MacArthur
11-04-2008, 05:26 PM
Yeah, it really is a good news.

What's nicer is that the two of them are good friend apparently.

The article in l'équipe on Jo today was really good too. The Willander chronicle particularly.

(I was really too tired yesterday, my launch for this thread is absolutely horrible :haha: )

Is Jo friends with Monfils

Yes, he is. With Gasquet they were all in the same school for sportsman in France (l'INSEP) (I am not sure for Simon). They are all good friends in fact. But Gael and Jo were a kind of group with Josselin Ouanna when they were young.

Don't be depressed, Davidenko was really good and earned rightfully his victory. But it's not against him that the qualification will be played and Jo still has all he needs to win it.

I just read an article about Jo complaining about the unprofessionalism of the ball kids. He obviously said that davydenko played well and although he was younger, Davydenko's physical conditioning is better than him. He said that the ball kids didn't work well with him. When he need to serve, they didn't pass him the balls at the right place. When he needed to wipe his face, they couldn't get him the towel. He said that was a setback and waste of his energy. In the last set alone, the ball kid lost sight of his towel like ten times and needed time to find it. It was a distraction to his concentration.

I believe what Jo said. I didn't see this match but I saw the match earlier and del potro was mad that he had to fetch his own towel many times, like the kids either didn't know the word towel or they were deaf.

edit: I found the video to his post match press conference

Hi Tsonga fans :wavey:

Don't worry - I come in peace (even though your guy keeps on beating mine :o ) Anyway - thought you may like to see these clips from Chinese TV. The first is a link to a Fashion Show that Jo took part in, - and the second is the actual Opening Ceremony.

well about the ball boys I agree that its way different from what he got in bercy cause they are over-trained all year, they are trained and evaluate to be the best for the players.Its because of roland garros.
Jo has to deal with it.Its like that.
He needs to focus now and win his next 2 matchs.
Allez jo.

Thanks for the vids:)

JBdV
11-11-2008, 10:20 AM
He looks way too tired to be playing his best tennis, his game from the baseline has been poor, especially his backhand :( It would be disappointing if he loses all his matches after making it this far, but it looks like he has nothing left to give in this event.

JBdV
11-11-2008, 10:28 AM
He is still fighting. Let's hope this was the switch of momentum he needed.

JBdV
11-11-2008, 10:57 AM
So many backhand errors today :(

Månu
11-11-2008, 11:07 AM
Well that's it I guess, I watched it and JMDP played well but Tsonga tried to overplay IMO, he should play safer sometimes...

MacArthur
11-11-2008, 11:11 AM
I don't think that it's a tennis problem. His game is to take some risk and that's all.

I think that he is just mentally toasted after Paris. He was absolutely unable to mentally match with JMDP.


Well, that's probably it for shanghaï. Already time to regroup for the next season.

amdany
11-11-2008, 11:23 AM
I also think he's mentally toasted...ah well we can't blame him.
Hoping for another great season next year and injury-free this time:)

lisaplenske
11-11-2008, 11:33 AM
yes he was probably more tired mentally that he would want to say and accept to recognize.
Sad for him cause its over for him now even if he has one match to play.:sad:
He couldnt play his game today, he was too frustrated to make a great match and beat del potro in straight.
Well congrats to him after his big big season with a slam finale, 2 tournaments wins, 1 master serie at home,in france and then a top10 spot giving a qualification in the master cup.
Time to take some deserving rest,go spend holidays in a sunny country.
hope to see him even better(his backhand needs work) in 2009 and especially be injury free!

SelvenluvJo
11-11-2008, 11:37 AM
well,I believe that Jo's problem is the experience of match.He doesn't know how to control his power@_@,the key points are less empirical.Anyway ,he needs play more matches,we need time. ^^

Not a bad effort from Jo, and good experience for his first TMC. Pity he had to be on the losing end of tie-breaks in both matches. Would be nice if he could salvage a win in his next match against Djokovic, but no sweat - just play like there's nothing to lose.

Then, time to take a much needed break, take care of that body and be revitalised for 2009. I'm praying that he stays injury-free. As long as he's able to play, he can go on a tear and steamroll everybody down. His brand of tennis, his character, his charisma make up a special package that we can't resist. He's really good for tennis.

happy for jo who saved his honnor in this master cup.What a pity he didnt win his first match but even more his match against del potro who got beaten in straight by davydenko today.:(

Well good win cause he shows that he has djokovic number beating him for the third consecutive time :devil::devil:and above all he reach his best ranking n°6 in the world,he passed roddick.
Congrats jo:yeah::yeah::yippee:

now time to rest, a well deserving rest for a great year and hope for him to be even bigger in 2009.

Uhm, well the first time I saw him was a few years back in Holland at a challenger I believe. And I liked him then but sorta forgot about him:lol: Untill I saw him again in Australia this year! So...;)

11-14-2008, 06:27 PM
I read that he will probably particpate to the master france in toulouse.
Its a kind of exhibition wish regroup the best 8 french players.Dont know if jo will go there but he's in the list of players invited.
Simon,benneteau,mannarino,mathieu,giquel,mahut and gasquet are expecting to be there.
This will take place from 18 to 21 december.

Yesterday djokovic won, what were your impressions jojotards?

when we know that jo beat him in RR there but in 3 consecutive times...

I hope jo to be in djokovic quarter in the AO next year and you?

MacArthur
11-17-2008, 04:37 PM
I think we could say that he owns Djoko when he would have beaten him at the beginnning of a year, when Djoko is at his peak. But I will agree that it's probable that he has now an accurate idea on what to do to beat him.

On the AO, he said in a recent interview that his main objective at the moment is to win a grand slam. As he said before Bankgok that his objective was to win a tournament and before Bercy that he was looking at a Masters title...
So I don't know if he is going to win the AO next year, but I'm sure that it's going to be really difficult to beat him. And sure if he is in the quarter of Djoko, we won't feel very "dépayser".

lisaplenske
11-17-2008, 06:36 PM
yeah you're right!we can expect him to realise the things that he projected to do for 2009 like he did in 2008;
he has this incredible determination.:angel:

simplet
11-17-2008, 09:46 PM
It'd be better for him to be in Nadal's quarter, or even Murray's. I think he is the favourite against those two players; Djokovic would have the pressure to defend his title, or at least some of his points, so I don't see him go down easily. I'd say it would be 50-50 against djokovic, and he would clearly have trouble beating Federer. The best would be Nadal, then Murray, then Djoko in the final.

lisaplenske
11-18-2008, 11:24 AM
yes but the pressure of defending champion can also be very complicate to handle especially when you face top players early in the tournament.
And jo knows how to play him.But well whoever jo will draw, he ll have to beat them all.

riva
11-18-2008, 06:47 PM
Jo is best! I think in the following year it will win not one tournament!

Hello folks,I am from the Gasquetaires board but have really become a fan of Jo and Gille lately. I know lots of people are jumping on the bandwagon now! Although unless you follow tennis 24/7 it's not so easy to follow players in the earlier stages of their career as though don't get the media exposure so you can actuaaly know who they are. This is definitely the case in England as the only player our country is obessessed with is Murray.

MacArthur
11-26-2008, 05:06 PM
No problem, just jump in here. :wavey:

" One have to begin one day" ;)

I know that Richard has already begun his preparation for the next year, but I think that Jo is still in holyday. So it's going to be a little dead some more in here.

I also know that Gasquet will be at the master france between the 18 and the 21 of december, with Jo and the others.
Mmmmmmmh it seems really promissing :devil:

lisaplenske
11-26-2008, 06:23 PM

11-27-2008, 07:38 AM
Hi reggie1, welcome on board :wavey:

Jo has the kind of personality that draws you in like a magnet and a huge talent that electrifies. Hoping that the bandwagon ride lasts a long while :)

I'm also toying with the idea of going to South Africa to watch him play after the AO. I've always wanted to visit South Africa, and this is the best reason to do so.

Didn't you say last time you're a PSG fan, Benoît? Because I just came across that - maybe it's a well-known fact, I don't know, I have no clue of football:

Chouchou des mômes en particulier et du public en général, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga ne joue pas le Masters de Toulouse. Mais il a quand même tenu à honorer son engagement de venir taper quelques balles avec les enfants de la Ligue Midi-Pyrénées de tennis, mercredi.
Le foot ? « Je m'intéresse aux autres sports, mais sans regarder vraiment les calendriers et les championnats. Y a juste un truc… je ne sais pas si je peux le dire… j'aime pas le PSG. » À côté de lui, Marc Gicquel manque de s'étouffer : « T'es fou, dis pas ça ! » Tsonga : « Oui, c'est vrai, faut pas le dire… »

Noooooooooooo!!!

Traitor ! :lol::lol::lol::lol:


Mmmmmmmh.... I know that Richard Gasquet is a PSG fan and I wonder how they talk about it between them :lol:

Anyway, I really don't care what he thinks about football, that's not why I watch him on the court (and PSG is doing great right now, so who cares what they think about us :devil: ).


But thanks for the very important news, Truc :lol: .

I have missed tennis so much and can't wait for the 2009 season to start.

I hope that Jo hits the ground running at Brisbane and builds up superb form for AO. As 2008 runner-up, he's got a ton of points to defend. Expectations will be high on him this time but he's got the motivation and desire to succeed. Good luck Jo!

I wish Jo and all his loyal fans good health, happiness, success and prosperity in 2009. Happy New Year!

Yeah. Or when Mo said: "remember this is televised, so please sit down during the entire changeover." To which Gabashvili said: "I want to sit down longer, is that aloud?" And apparently he thought it was extremely funny cause it cracked him up:o And Mo was just looking like: :rolleyes:

:rolls: I can totally see the guy entering the court without his bag, all happy to play, getting ready to the net and Jo making his :scratch: thing : "hem you sure you haven't forgotten anything man ?"

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 10:42 PM
Well Jo probably got G/G together so ... :lol: Oh God tess that's funny :lol: This Gabishvili is a little character methinks. Oh I am LOVING the tennis Jo-Wi is playing

Hi Tess/Eimear/Marion (I don't think I've chatted to you before, I'm Jen, hello)
Yes, Gabashvili was really funny at the start of the match, then Jo seemed to take his time deciding if he wanted to serve or not.

It's been a good start to the match, could end up being quite tight.

What's all this about Gael and Gillou?!

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 10:45 PM
My msn stopped working Eim, so that's why I'm offline there, just so you know.

Keijan
03-14-2009, 10:46 PM
Lol I actually thought the chair was going down under Jo haha. It looks so small compared to him.


Oh and I am officially marrying Jo's forehand tonight :drool:

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 10:48 PM
Hun, you're already his gf, aren't you? That means you own him (:armed:), which meansyou already have his forehand:D

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 10:48 PM
What's all this about Gael and Gillou?!
Hmmm ... where shall we start ... :lol: Do you want to tell her or will I Marion??? I'm not sure how I can break the news :lol:

My msn stopped working Eim, so that's why I'm offline there, just so you know.
That's no problem sweetie. we're talking here anyway so it's all good :)

Oh and I am officially marrying Jo's forehand tonight :drool:

His forehand is AMAZING tonight

Keijan
03-14-2009, 10:48 PM
He's ON today :) I just have such a smile on my face watching him I really do :)

Would you believe that's exactly what is happening to me. It's how great he is. No matter how shitty your day was, just watch a JoWi match and it'll get better :woohoo:


Hi Tess/Eimear/Marion (I don't think I've chatted to you before, I'm Jen, hello)

What's all this about Gael and Gillou?!


Hi Jen :bigwave: No it's a little joke we often have at the Richie forum :lol: that's wishful thinking :drool: (but they did kiss each other more times than I can count so there must be a little truth in there, right Eim)

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 10:49 PM
Oh yes good point tess. He is your bf Marion so what's his is yours sweetie :)

Keijan
03-14-2009, 10:50 PM
Hun, you're already his gf, aren't you? That means you own him (:armed:), which meansyou already have his forehand:D

Oh wait you're right. Thanks for reminding me that I'm already the luckiest woman on earth :drool::drool::drool::drool:

Eimear O'Mahony

Would you believe that's exactly what is happening to me. It's how great he is. No matter how shitty your day was, just watch a JoWi match and it'll get better :woohoo:

See Jen your name has now caught on :lol: He is definitely one HECK of an advert for men's tennis that's for sure. He's a credit to himself and his family that he makes people feel like that watching him 'cause there are very few players who can do that

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 10:53 PM
Eimear he's getting angry :devil::lol:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 10:54 PM

Oh ok, you were talking about their beautiful friendship. :)
JoWi's FH is amazing today, you are a very lucky Girlfriend. ;) JoWi is so enigmatic, watching him never fails to make me smile.

Keijan
03-14-2009, 10:56 PM
Exactly Eimear. And the fact that he's half African doesn't hurt either. Thanks to him there is a lot of kids who are trying tennis now over there. He brings them hope :D
He's not the only player I love but he's the only one during which matches I go :drool: every two points. Even Richie has never been that spectacular except for a few matches.

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 10:57 PM
What's with all the UE's all of a sudden? :help:

Eimear O'Mahony

Is it just friendship or is it something more ... I'm saying NOTHING!!! :lol:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 10:58 PM
Yeah remember in the documentary when he was surrounded by all those kids in J/Burg. That was so cute!!!

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:00 PM
We're not saying anything Eimear :angel: we just use our eyes and witness :devil:

Aw I like ADORE his little smile at the net :inlove: who's the lovestruck teenager now :lol:

PinkFeatherBoa
03-14-2009, 11:00 PM
:lol: Eimear, it certainly is an interesting friendship they have. As we saw in my Photoshop image. :angel:

Break here, Jo!

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:02 PM
It's okay Marion. He's your man. You're allowed to be lovestruck :hearts: :lol: You're right about the chair btw. It is WAY too small for him!!! Yeah Jenny your photoshop image was BRILLIANT!!! :worship:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:02 PM
And yup ... actions speak louder than words ;) Although, when you've got Gilles saying he wants to touch Gael's ass maybe words speak louder in those cases :haha:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:02 PM
Oh, you're the one who made that amazing photoshopped picture !! You seriously rock :rocker2:

Set point !! :woohoo:

Tess Gray

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:04 PM
Oh what a way to win that set!!! I feel sorry for Gabishvili ... kind of :lol:

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:04 PM
What a smash on SP :rolls: Poor guy.

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:04 PM
oh my god that was SO stupid :rolls: thank you Teimuraz, awesome job :worship:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:05 PM
Love to see the Sampras smash again :drool:

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:06 PM
Oh yes, you can always count on Gabashvili to do something stupid at a crucial point in the match:lol:

PinkFeatherBoa
03-14-2009, 11:07 PM
That SP was so hilarious but on well, I'll take it. Shame it was an otherwise good set!

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:08 PM
I love it when players sort of jump into their backhand... It looks spectacular! And both players have already done that a fw times this match.


Fast first game :yeah:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:08 PM
And yup ... actions speak louder than words ;) Although, when you've got Gilles saying he wants to touch Gael's ass maybe words speak louder in those cases :haha:

Oh god I'll NEVER get tired of that one. Actually he asked for permission didn't he ? And he even began with "we love each other, right ? Would you mind me caressing your ass behind the flag ?" And Gaël going all yeah sure carry on, but discreetly alright there is cameras around :rolls:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:09 PM
Oh I love the jumping into the backhand. It looks GREAT!!! Gilles does it a fair bit too and I love it. Oh Marion it's the best piece of footage I've ever seen. Gael looked like he was really keen on the idea and even in the photos it does look like Gilles is indeed caressing Gael's arse!

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:12 PM
And an early break :worship: Jo is playing so solid!

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:13 PM
And we fall into the G/G talk once again :haha: we are so corrupted Eim :devil: but it's their fault they make it so easy for us. Gaël was very obviously not against a little petting in public :devil:

Aw I love Gillou's backhand :drool: I've been trying to do the same in practice as I have the same kind of backhand as he does and actually it gets so much more powerful and precise, I love it.

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:13 PM
Wow wow, don't get in the way of Jojo's serve when he's angry :haha:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:15 PM
He said "merci" to the little ballgirl :inlove: I'm entering ultimate fangirling mode here

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:16 PM
It's like they WANT us to talk about it Marion. I'm sure they get together and say 'What can we give the girls to talk about today' :lol: I mean, even in your avi pic Marion, it could be interpreted as Gilles apologising to Gael for something after a row! Gilles' backhand is great. I love it. Yup Jo is playing INCREDIBLY solid. If Gilles playes half as well I'll be a happy bunny

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:16 PM
He said "merci" to the little ballgirl :inlove: I'm entering ultimate fangirling mode here

He could have just said thanks :p No need to be using the French JoWi

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:17 PM
:rolls: Oh Marion I was also :inlove: when he was smiling at the ballgirl.

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:20 PM
Guys I think my hangover from last night/this morning is starting to kick in. I'm so incredibly tired all of a sudden:o:lol:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:22 PM
How can you have a hangover if you weren't drinking Tess??? Hmmm??? Methinks you were drinking medear!!! Hopefully Jo will break in the next game and wrap it up nice and quickly for you

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:24 PM
Yeah Eim, that avi pic is my favorite ! It's from one of the numerous pictures I took when I went to a Gaël/Gillou doubles match in Paris where I was first rank :inlove: they spent the whole match giggling with each other or pretending to be mad at each other when one of them was missing a shot :haha: it was soooo cute !

And there was the cutest of moments when they headed to the bench at 1-0 in the second set : Gaël actually bent down to take Gillou's bottle and give it to him with a smile and a pat on the neck, then bent down a second time to take *his* bottle and drink from it. Exactly like he didn't want his precious Gillou to risk hurting his back or something :haha: At that point I think I was drowning myself in a ocean of drool ahem.

I like how you've adopted the JoWi nickname. :lol:

I like that JoWi brought out the French, he can speak French to me anytime. ;) I really hope I get to meet Jo finally this summer, last year he missed a lot of the tournaments I went to since he was injured so long. :( I did see him at Bercy but since you can't watch practise there, it's harder to say Bonjour.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:27 PM
I'm just kidding with you Tess :hug:

Marion that is SUCH a cute story!!! Oh these two just get better and better they really do!!! I don't think they even bother to try and hide it do they? :lol:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:28 PM
Ooh you went to Bercy Jen? Which days ? We probably missed each other as I was there half the time :lol:
Sorry to hear that Tess :hug: hope it gets better soon.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:28 PM
He has a gorgeous voice that's for sure Jen. I really hope you get to meet him at one of the summer tournaments. It's always cool to meet your favourites

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:29 PM
Sorry to hear that Tess hope it gets better soon.

Well technically it is my own fault:p

PinkFeatherBoa
03-14-2009, 11:34 PM
:hug: Tessa

I was there on the Wednesday/Thursday Marion. I love Bercy, such a fun tournament. Yeah Eimear, I've met most of my favourites but Jo always escapes me somehow. :ras:

Time to finish this match please JoWi

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:35 PM
Allez Joey :bounce: Serving for the match

I just saw Gael lost his doubles match with a love set in the 2nd ... he'll need some Gillou loving tonight methinks!

PinkFeatherBoa
03-14-2009, 11:38 PM
Ace to finish, nice win from JoWi.

Eimear, you watching on Sky Sports? Why did our commentators start going on about Gabashvili's socks being too high! :rolls:

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:39 PM
Why did our commentators start going on about Gabashvili's socks being too high!

I'm not watching Sky, but they're right :o He looked like a freaking schoolboy:lol:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:41 PM
Yeah Eimear, they probably became friends stressing over their players, since Gilles and Jo were always hanging out together with Gaël :lol:

Great job Jo-Willy :hug: Andreev next :bounce:


I would have say schoolgirl Tess :rolls:
Nah Eimear, Gaël knew Jo's match was going to be soon over so he told Zverev "let's hurry up" so he could buy popcorn and still catch some of Gillou's match :lol:

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:42 PM
^I'm sure he was thinking just that Marion:lol:

PinkFeatherBoa
03-14-2009, 11:42 PM
Yes, they are right but it took them until 1 game until the end to suddenly notice. It was just the timing of their comment that was a little silly!

MacArthur
03-14-2009, 11:45 PM
:woohoo: :lol: Hola Marion.

This chatthread is dead. We should bring it back to life :cool:

Most of the residents around here aren't really the chat type, so that's why there isn't much activity besides the tournament thread. :)

But I've created this thread a long time ago for those interested, so have it your way :devil: :wavey:

Tess Gray
03-14-2009, 11:45 PM

Oh well, guys I'm off to bed :wavey: Im exhausted :yawn:
Have fun watching Gillou and remember to take screencaps whenever you see Gael or any other possible lover in the audience.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:46 PM
Yeah I heard that comment and thought it was a little strange myself :confused: :lol: Oh yeah I'm sure Gael was like 'look for fuck's sake I have to go back to the hotel for my headphones and then I have to buy the popcorn. I'm going to be late dammit and Gilles is NOT going to be happy'

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:46 PM
Night Tess sweetie. Talk to you tomorrow :hug:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:47 PM
Good chat tonight girls. I'm not staying up for Gillou so you Simontards here, I count on you to make him leave the court unharmed and victorious :devil:

Sorry Eimear, you need to stay up to tell me if Gaël attended his bf match or not :lol:
Good night everyone :bigwave:

Keijan
03-14-2009, 11:47 PM
Sure Gillou won't be happy if he doesn't get his lover's good luck kiss before stepping on court :rolls:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-14-2009, 11:48 PM
I love how it's left to me!!! Night Marion :hug: Talk to you tomorrow and I shall send you a message on FB if I happen to see Gael. You won't be kept in the dark :lol:

I think it will be on tv tomorrow around 11 am Eimear so I might go to sleep
Sorry I missed Marion :(

Eimear O'Mahony
03-15-2009, 12:28 AM
Ah right... I don't think it'll be on tv here tomorrow so I'll just stay awake and catch even a set of it ... my logic is if I was out partying with my friends i'd be up all night anyway so ... :lol: Glad you enjoyed our conversation :lol: Yeah Marion was around. I'm sure she'll be by tomorrow :)

xhr75019
03-15-2009, 12:32 AM
I see you stole half of my signature... Doesn't make much sense not to have the second half as well

Eimear O'Mahony
03-15-2009, 12:37 AM
I can change it back if you want Xavi, it's just Marion was saying if I was a 4 Musketeer fan why didn't I have Gael's name in my sig and it was the only way I could get it to fit. I didn't take the 2nd half because 1) It would be a DIRECT copy of yours and 2) It kind fits the whole G/G thing :lol: Like I said though, if there's a problem I can change it

xhr75019
03-15-2009, 12:43 AM
tbh I was a bit surprised at first but I guess it's ok. Plus the royalties are a nice prospect ;)

Eimear O'Mahony
03-15-2009, 12:44 AM
Honestly Xavier if you want I can change it. I don't mind. I don't want to offend you

xhr75019
03-15-2009, 12:57 AM
I'd feel a bit stupid claiming exclusivity on a pun. At the same time a signature is by definition something personnal, don't you think ? Really, do what you want Eimear it's your call...

Eimear O'Mahony
03-15-2009, 01:00 AM
It's okay don't worry about it Xavier. I've changed it

xhr75019
03-15-2009, 01:00 AM
Gilles' match could be in an hour or so, maybe more... The tv show I was half watching is over, I think I am off to bed Eimear. Good night !

What a match just now huh.:rolls: OMG, gael is a legend, he really is:lol:

Eimear O'Mahony

Oh God tonight was the first time I could see why Gael was called Mr Entertainer. I still have a smile on my face thinking about it

Bashak
03-29-2009, 10:08 PM
I am watching, too. But I am desperate to go to sleep. :yeah: great match Gael. very long but equally entertaining.

Tess Gray
03-29-2009, 10:10 PM
Hiya :wavey:

Yeah I kinda want to go to bed as well... Just have to read through my economics one last time, then I'll go to bed:lol:

Tess Gray
03-29-2009, 10:12 PM
BTW, I love all those people on GM hating on Gael :spit: He's really not loved is he?

Eimear O'Mahony
03-29-2009, 10:12 PM
I would definitely call it entertaining yeah :) C'mon guys you have to keep me company! I'm bored :( I don't like watching tennis alone

Eimear O'Mahony
03-29-2009, 10:13 PM
How could you NOT love Gael???

Bashak
03-29-2009, 10:15 PM
Maybe it's the never-ending love for Marat?

Tess Gray
03-29-2009, 10:17 PM
Oh hun I'm sorry but I'm seriously *this* close to falling asleep on my keyboard :rolls: I really should get going:awww:

:hug:Bye all! Send some positive vibes to Jo for me:)

03-29-2009, 10:19 PM
Okay sweetie. Night :hug:

I am waiting for Jo to break to go to bed, but no luck yet.

Eimear O'Mahony
03-29-2009, 10:25 PM
It's actually quite a dull match after the excitement of Monfilsafin

Bashak
03-29-2009, 10:41 PM
:( what's happening?

Bashak
03-29-2009, 10:51 PM
a spectator took a tumble down the stairs. the paramedics came. the match is currently suspended. both players are sitting and waiting.
the score is 5-4 Kendrick. Jo will serve for the 10. game (40-30) when play resumes.
I am off to bed.
Good luck Jo!
and hopefully noone was hurt.

Tess Gray
03-30-2009, 12:56 PM
A spectator fell down the stairs?:spit::rolls: Obviously hoping the spectator isn't hurt, but omg how embarassing:help:

Eimear O'Mahony
03-30-2009, 01:51 PM
Yeah and held up the match for nearly half an hour ... oh the shame :o

Bashak
03-30-2009, 03:02 PM
my god half an hour? I'm glad went to sleep then.
does anyone know what happened? was it an old lady? a kid? I was so confused, I thought someone died or something horrible like that happened.

Tess Gray
03-30-2009, 03:18 PM
Half an hour?:help:

I have no clue who it was or what happened to that person:shrug:

Tess Gray
04-10-2009, 08:49 AM
I hate how quiet it is in this forum:( I mean, Jo is one of the nicest players on tour (and one of the most successfull this year so far), but still it's so quiet!!:(

I was thinking the other day, do we know what kind of music Jo likes? Who are his fav artists?

DanaKz
04-10-2009, 09:58 AM
I would be happy to talk about Jo, about Jo's favorite things and about his plans, but I know nothing about it, because all news I get from here :D
I am "absolute zero" in French, if you know what I mean. And English part of Internet is not very lavish with news about Jo.:devil:

Tess Gray
04-10-2009, 10:40 AM
Oh I know! I'd love to talk about Jo 24/7 but the truth is, I don't know that much about him. Quite embarassing because he is definitely one of my fav players:lol: So shame on me. I guess some of the Frenchies around here could tell us loads about him... *hinthint*

Tsonga and fellow tennis player Gaël Monfils would practice together and spend hours trying to develop a serve like Andy Roddick's.
Both of Tsonga's parents now work as teachers in France. Tsonga also has an older sister, Sasha, and a younger brother, Enzo, who is a part of the French junior basketball program.
Players on the ATP circuit have nicknamed Tsonga "the Muhammad Ali of Tennis" due to his striking resemblance to Muhammad Ali, who is one of his heroes. Tsonga is coached by compatriot Éric Winogradsky.


From wiki, knew most of that anyway :p

Yeah that's the basis of it I think. His father is from the Congo. Apparently Jo suffered from racism back in Africa because they found it hard to accept his mixed-race heritage. They didn't like the fact he had a white Mam which is horrible. Poor Jo :hug:

What do you want to know ?

I have no idea about his musics taste, I only know that Gilles once said that himself, Jo and Gaël all had as far different music tastes as possible :lol: so, no rap imo.

He's from a sporting family. His brother plays in the French basketball team, his father was an international handballer and his grand father who was a famous volleyball player invented the smash serve :lol: He also has a cousin who plays football, Charles N'Zogbia.

Xavier, she never said that. But it seems he got problems when he first went to Congo, people talking about why he wasn't playing for Congo instead of France.
Being of mixed-race can sometimes be even worse than being white there.

I never said Jo ever lived in the Congo Xavier come on!!! :rolleyes: I said his FATHER was from the Congo NOT Jo ... Read my message properly and THEN comment! And it was during this visit to his grandfather that he was subjected to a little racism or so Marion tells me and I'm sure she can back me up on this!!!

Oh, great, it is not quite anymore! :woohoo: Glad to see it. :)
I remember Jo's siblings - they were in Bercy. And all of his family too. I wonder: Were these two old guys near to them Jo's Grandpas? They were dancing like they are. :D

Hey DanaKz :) what is your name ? I'm Marion :bigwave:

Maybe there was Jo's mum's father, but I don't think there was his father's father because he lives in Congo and never left it :)

I think it's derived from the movie The Terminator. It's just a little nickname I guess. It doesn't really mean something. As far as I know anyway:shrug:

Keijan
04-11-2009, 09:03 AM
Yup yup Bashak, it's true :) I don't remember where I had read it but his grandpa is a big star amongst the volleyballers :)

Tsonganator :shrug: I guess it's another nickname, in the Tsongamania kind :)I think they began to call him that after Bercy, to emphase the fact that nobody could resist him :cool:


Maybe he likes cheesy lovebirds songs Tetta, who knows :lol:
