PAULO is my favourite... anyway everybody likes Paul-Henri Mathieu !! :kiss:

And what about Olivier Mutis ?? :) His match against Roddick in Roland Garros was so great... :clap2: :worship: :clap2:

I like Ascione, Lisnard, Mahut and Gasquet... :hatoff:

But Benneteau, I don't know why but he looks haughty and proud... :ras:

Mutis played great against Roddick but I don't like his personnality (c'est un flambeur doublé d'un mec qui n'a pas gd chose ds la tete).

Julien looks nice.

Mine is not even on your list, Sophie :hysteric:

Dip, of course. Or else a package including Mika, JulienB, Paulo, Seb, Olivier, Arnaud and Edouard would be nice, you know, for Christmas!

Ome, are you really monégasque ??

Ome
11-27-2004, 02:06 AM
I moved to Monte Carlo for quite a while now. But my nationality is American.

Marine
11-27-2004, 05:30 AM
oh ok. But I guess you didn't moved to Monte Carlo for taxes, I know only French and Americans can't profit fiscal paradise.. lol
You speak french ?

Ome
11-27-2004, 08:51 AM
Yeah, I know. And that's why I really pissed off for being American at first. :lol:

I do speak some French because the language help me to find something for my stomach these days. lol But the weird thing is I'm not any good at reading or writting. I understand what people say but I just can't get the part of reading/writting. My parents said it's okay because I only live here for 4 months but I just don't think so!

11-29-2004, 02:12 PM
hi air :)
now to my answer. i needed some days to think over what to write. it´s really a hard question.
my first faves are: arnaud, seb and thierry.
but i like so many frenchies like oli m., julien b., dip, antony, paulo, jerome, nico e., fabrice, michael l.

michelleg
11-29-2004, 09:06 PM
Dip, Nono, Julien Benneteau, Olivier Patience

Dip is by far my favorite, though.

:eek: where's your loyalty young woman?? lol

i actually think it's much better that my favourite isn't a top 10 with hordes of other fans that i need to elbow out in order to get close. the major worry is of course, i don't even get to see him play if he doesn't qualify :(

right now, most frenchies are pretty accessible.... not good news!

Marine
11-30-2004, 09:36 PM
Yes Via, we'll be the last ones if it continues...

Via
11-30-2004, 10:51 PM
aaaah, we wish. don't forget, arnaud is the anna k of men's tennis ;)

esther
12-02-2004, 12:44 AM
:eek: where's your loyalty young woman??

Lol i know *sigh* I still love them...you know that...but its a two-way relationship and i want something back!! Lol just kidddinnnng. I just wish sometimes they were more focused and took it more seriously so they didnt make their fans all frustrated and annoyed at them!

Via
12-02-2004, 06:32 AM
:sad: i don't think arnaud wants to sink that low so soon. if these entry/qualification troubles don't get him up and work harder and play better, then we won't see much of him very soon....

with seb, it's just all :confused: what's going through his mind

Action Jackson
12-02-2004, 06:36 AM
Di Pasquale.

sphaerena
12-04-2004, 09:21 PM
for me it's seb( if i'm fond of tennis it's because of him :p) and Pulooooo! :d

Catchie
12-06-2004, 06:24 PM
aaaah, we wish. don't forget, arnaud is the anna k of men's tennis ;)
I will like Arnaud forever :)

Hangdog
12-06-2004, 11:13 PM
Well, my favorite french (not only player but french at all) is without any doubt Sèbastien Grosjean. And there're lots of reasons for it. And Arnaud... Arnaud is Arnaud, and it's just impossible to not enjoy him lol. Michael Llodra is also very good player and nice guy :)

Tricky_Forehand
12-07-2004, 12:22 AM
Well, I saw Arnaud play first but Seb beat him out pretty quick...lol. So my favorite frenchmen are Seb & Arnaud in that order. Paul-Henri has me sort of neutral so no opinion there. Same with Julien & Richard.

Via
12-07-2004, 03:34 AM
I will like Arnaud forever :)

can't you just give up, and let me own arnaud??? :p ;)

esther
12-07-2004, 05:36 AM
You asking that to all of us, Via? If you are, no no we cant! lol

richard gasquet
12-18-2004, 11:34 AM
my favorite player, the one that I support is richard gasquet :)

I think he is a real and talented tennis player with a great potential, he has a great tecnik and very powerful tennis. :cool:

The only thing that miss him and that make that he is not at the top 20-30 is that Mentally he is still a little bit weak, he has the defect to give up a little bit at the very important moment of a match and finally lost it.

He is still young(18) and still really perfectible, he has to be more self confident on his tennis and on Him but I trust in him and his capacities and hope that this year 2005 will be HIS year ,that he will win many matchs and some tournament to progress his ranking to enter the top 40 or 30.

He can do it, it just depend on him. :angel: :)

Here some pictures of him :cool:

he is still a little bit weak

A little bit ? Are your sure ? I'd say too much ! If we compare him to Nadal, who's a big fighter, who won the davis cup almost himself, it makes dream.
Richard has a beautiful game, a great potential, but I'm very sceptical for his future. I hope to be wrong of course...

richard gasquet
12-18-2004, 02:01 PM
Thats true that Nadal has a great Mental and is very talented but Richard already beat him when he was junior, he has a stronger tennis than Nadal and I think can do good things this year against the best.

Thats true that MENTAL is ery important in tennis but richard can improve it and is working on it. :)

I saw Jo-Wilfried Tsonga playing Roddick yesterday an though he lost in straight sets, I kind of liked the way he stood on court. Especially in the third, playing like he had nothing to loose! I must say, he's a big promise for the future! :yeah:

Nathy
06-03-2005, 12:56 AM
Nono's my favourite :hearts: :hug: :banana: But I also like Séb & Paulo :bigclap:

marifline
06-16-2005, 12:50 PM
Gael was the first french player who really impress me when I first saw him in Bercy..the only one who can make become the public crazy !!! :devil:
So I like Gael, Seb, Paulo and Richard my 4 fav... but it's truth that everybody loves Paulo( il est jsute tellement attendrissant) Richard make us DREAM and we must thank him for he's doing for FRENCH TENNIS and Seb, " indeboulonnable" french N°1 for the ones who thinks he has a lack of charism I put this pix :

Nathaliia
10-28-2005, 09:20 PM
I like all of them. Simply all. French tennis is :yeah: tennis. If I have to pick one......... Gael. After all.
The ones I had possibility to see live are (in order of appearance) Julien Benneteau, Nicolas Mahut, Anthony Dupuis, Edouard Roger-Vasselin (Sopot and Wrocław), Arnaud di Pasquale, Oli Mutis, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Jean-Christophe Faurel, Florent Serra (Wrocław and Szczecin), Gael Monfils.

but one of my first faves ever in tennis was Seb Grosjean and I still ADORE his game :worship:

02-11-2006, 11:40 AM
Hmm, definetly Richard Gasquet and Seb Grosjean!!! Probably Seb as more of a fave for me, coz when I was little (and had done very little French) I used to pronounce his name as "Gross Jeans" so I thought he was pretty awesome, lol! :lol:
