Gasquet and Monfils to play doubles at RG!

Hugely intriguing partnership from the 2 French youngsters.

Although I'm surprised about it on Gasquet's part. Considering he has a chance to do well, and he's not exactly the strongest physically I thought he would've saved all his energy for the singels.

Will be very interesting to see how they fare. :)

Gasquet won the mixed doubles last year, you never know.

They'll lose to Ferrer/Nadal in the first round.

Gasquet and Nadal were going to play a couple years ago. Then Nadal withdrew :(

That should be fun...but I don't see them going too far...even if Richie did win the mixed doubles last year. Hopefully they will prove me wrong.

That's really nice. They are good friends. Hopefully, they do well. :D

I wonder if he's going to play Mixed Doubles with Tati as well though. :o

They are good friends? That's sweet. I bet that their doubles matches will be quite packed. I know that there is no way in Hades that they will show it on ESPN here but I would love to catch a glimpse.

That picture is so cute. :) Gael looks really young it it- which is odd for someone at his height.

Richard played at video games in Gael when he went back from Hamburg :)

Do you mean 'with' rather than 'in'? I'm a bit confused, love.

I think he meant that Richard played video games at (chez) Gael's.

Something like "They left for us. They will come back thanks to us."

Florence (Aubenas) and her driver Hussein (Hannoun al-Saadi) were in Irak when they have been kidnapped about 3/4 months ago.. Unfortunately we don't know if they're still alive, we have no news of them. That's why Richard and Gael, as well as many other sporstmen/women in France, are wearing those T-shirts.

Oh, it's very serious.
I hope they return safe and sound.

Yes it's very serious (At least in France or USA cuz in Australia it seems that when someone is kidnapped it makes them laugh :rolleyes: )

Pretty sure that laugh was directed at the comment about Monfils playing doubles, not your post. Just a matter of timing when sending your post.

Good Luck Richard and Gael!

ae wowww

Good luck to them. So sad to hear about those two guys in Iraq-just an example of something that has happened on a huge scale. Nice sentiment to wear the shirts, it obviously means a lot to them.
Probably be typical that Jim and Skochster play Gael and Richard in the 1st Round!

Marine

Yes :unsure:
At Gael's home, with him... is that clear ?

I hope they do, do well because they both have some great raw talent. That needs to be unleased at a GS.

Apparently, Tati has said that they will be defending their title. I wonder if Richard will be able to handle playing so much tennis. :confused:

I would love to see a Richard/Gael vs. Bob and Mike final. I wouldn't know who to root for.

Richard and Tatiana are defending their title?? :confused: That's way too much tennis for Richard. Singles, men's doubles, and mixed? He's going to be too tired :sad:

where do you see silverwhite that richard will defend his double title with tati?? :confused:

in the last news richard plans onl to play male double with gael.

Richard is mad to play singles, men's doubles and mixed doubles.

I think he's a great talent but being strong physically isn't one of his best attributes. If he goes far in 2 of the draws he'll struggle, he's getting to the stage where he's good enough to start concentrating on singles in my opinion.

That is too much tennis. Especially on clay...his legs are going to fall off.
