on the good news side, you all will be thrilled to hear that my kitty seems to be recovering a bit. She got sick right at the beginning of the long weekend -- gagging, not eating, and the third eyelids a bit swollen. She had more appetite today and even went outside for a little bit this evening. She wanted to go out this morning, but I didn't want to risk it. She's still not 100%. One eye looks to be watering a bit.

He'd have to get a lot heavier. He's very slim.

I agree. He's about 55 lbs. too light. I think the McEnroes were assuming (for purposes of their hypo) that Rafa grew up playing American football. Otherwise the only position he could realistically play with any degree of proficiency would be...kicker. :o

Bah Gonzo, you never really know what you're gonna get with him. Rafa played pretty well last night, if he can play like that he's got a good chance. My only fear is that Rafa was rolling in his serve a lot last night, I'm not sure he can hit at 100% and Gonzo could just rip into it if he's playing well. I'll say Rafa in 4 though ;)
Thanks for your take on it. :)

Here it is, Andreea:

Monfils : «Rafa a été très fort»

L'Equipe - 09/09/09 :cool:

Après sa défaite en quatre sets contre Rafael Nadal, Gaël Monfils revient sur l'impact physique imposé par le Majorquin et analyse son match : «Je ne suis pas mécontent de mon match. Tant que je ne gagne pas, je suis effondré. Mais j'apprends.»

«Gaël Monfils, comment analysez-vous votre match ?
J'ai délivré un bon match. Physiquement, Rafa a été très fort, il a prouvé qu'il était là parce qu'il y avait beaucoup d'incertitudes sur lui. Mais je savais très bien qu'il serait là et il l'a démontré. J'ai des choses tactiques à revoir, mais je ne suis pas mécontent de mon match. Tant que je ne gagne pas, je suis effondré. J'apprends.

Quelles sont ces choses tactiques ?
Je pense qu'il m'a manqué de venir un peu au filet. Quand il a commencé à faire ses longs retours un peu hauts croisés, j'aurais peut-être dû faire deux ou trois service-volée pour lui mettre davantage de pression. C'est la même chose en coup droit. J'aurais pu y aller une ou deux fois pour le faire douter. Il y avait un peu de fatigue car cela fait un petit moment que je n'ai pas joué à un très haut niveau comme ce soir. Cela rentre progressivement. Avec plus de matches, j'aurais été mieux. Mais je suis quand même satisfait.

Est-ce qu'il vous oblige à jouer le coup de trop ?
Je tapais fort, je mettais des lattes décroisées et le mec a bien défendu. J'ai parfois boisé un peu car je voulais taper plus fort et la gratter pour rester dans le terrain. Il m'a fait forcer un petit peu.

A quel moment avez-vous commencé à souffrir physiquement ?
Au milieu du deuxième set, je commençais à souffrir. A un moment, j'ai connu une petite baisse physique, le combat était plus dur et il a pris le dessus. A la fin du match, je n'étais pas forcément atteint, j'étais plutôt dans la recherche. Je n'arrivais pas à le déborder, j'essayais de taper fort, j'essayais de prendre de la marge pour me donner plus de chances, mais il a bien défendu. Bravo.

Est-ce que cela signifie que vous devez progresser physiquement ?
C'est vraiment contre lui. Même contre Fed (Ndlr : Roger Federer), je sors du match, je suis clean. Contre lui, ce sont de longs échanges avec une balle qui gicle, je tape la balle beaucoup plus fort. Cela me montre que pour battre un mec comme Rafa en Grand Chelem, il faut que je progresse physiquement.

Avez-vous été surpris du niveau de jeu de Rafael Nadal ?
Je m'attendais à une bonne bataille. Là, il a bien joué. S'il récupère bien, ouf (admiratif)... Cela faisait longtemps que je ne l'avais vu défendre si bien. Au service, il sert toujours pareil. Il y a des jours, il met que des premières balles pas super rapides. Et d'autres jours, il va mettre que des aces.

Qu'avez-vous pensé de la night session ?
La night session, c'est terrible. Je suis défait car j'ai oublié mon appareil photo pour filmer en rentrant sur le court. Je suis effondré. C'est mythique. J'étais sûr de l'avoir mis dans mon sac.»

He can play much more agressive than that, his winners count in the last two matches have been embarassing.
He was a beast defensively in the set and a half that I watched, but whether the uber defensive mindset was due to playing a retriever or lack of confidence or injury or whatever it was awful.

Our king gave a speech in July this year to warn people not to be materialistic in these times of crisis.

What does he do? Buy a huge, VERY expensive yacht and another huge mansion in the South of France.
Way to set an example. :rolleyes:

Defence of his spokespeople: he buys this with private money and so, he can do with his money as he pleases.

Oh, that's okay then. It's not materialistic to buy yet another yacht and another mansion if it's with private money.
