Towards the end of Chang's career, he decided to bulk up for extra power. There was a trade-off though, he lost a great deal of mobility. Because that went against his natural game (and I don't think it benefited him in the strength department either), his results suffered for it.

Gael is still young though, and 4kg isn't really much on his 191cm frame. It seems to have gone straight to his biceps anyway. :lol:

Truc
01-06-2009, 03:59 PM
I remember it was an issue for Coria too when he tried to bulk up a little bit with Perlas because they wanted to change his game and his serve. But you're right, both Chang and Coria are much shorter, the comparison is not apt.

There are a few sites where I have seen this year's nike line, and now that Raf has changed his look, I didn't see any sleeveless shirts in the mix, hopefully they will have some. I have always wanted some sleeveless lacoste stuff, maybe he should think about switching, ;)

I am very interested to see Gael play, he already has so much power, and I'm sure he could afford to lose just a bit of mobility if he steps about 2 feet closer to the baseline in rallies. Either way, his arms are huge...I bet Hewitt is frowning at his '05 rasheed days

How do you call that hairstyle in English? In French I'd call it a "coupe pétard" (literally: "firecracker haircut"). "Spiky hairstyle"?

"Mad scientist look"! :lol:
Last time again the article in L'Equipe mentioned his "coupe pťtard" and I was wondering if there is a funny expression to say that in English too, that's why I asked.

I like it too on him, it suits him since he's so tall and a bit crazy.

Thank you :)
I love the new clothes, suit him so well. Except for the shoes, black, blue, yellow and green is a bit too much :lol:
He still has two wrist bands on his right forearm... what's the point in having a tattoo if you don't want to show it?

His legs (and arms) sometimes seriously scare me ! Makes me think of those "skinned" (ťcorchťs ?) models we use in drawing classes to know exactly where the muscles are setted and stuff. Come on, it must hurt at some point, no ?

Heartbreaking pic, but his fingers, yeah :inlove:

wonder if at any second he's going to be voiding from both ends

How well-put :lol:

So he had a warning when he lie down on the court ? I thought they were allowed to do whatever they wanted during those 25 seconds of rest between the points :mad: does that umpire even have a heart ?

Truc
02-15-2009, 03:48 PM
Thanks, I hadn't even read further, I had overlooked the part about the warning.
:armed:

I've read once they get fined for every warning, I hope he can appeal if it's true. Just symbolically. Maybe Rafa can testify.

So they have to pay a fine whenever they have a warning ? I thought it was only the previous step of seeing a point given to the opponent. Maybe the ump should have come along with Rafa during the bathroom break to check by himself if GaŽl was faking or not :smash:

I hope he can appeal if it's true. Just symbolically. Maybe Rafa can testify.

Yeah Rafa will probably jump in to save the day :lol: (as soon as his knees are alright :sad:)

I really hope GaŽl won't sack him, I wasn't too fond of the other coaches, but if he does it again with Rasheed - I'll be annoyed.

It's funny you said over there you were hardly paying attention to GaŽl because of Gilles in doubles. It's the opposite in the pics imo, GaŽl outshines Gilles a little. But it sometimes feels different in person. Thanks again!

They look great together, GaŽl and Rasheed. I think Rasheed is a funny and sensitive guy even if he doesn't show it in front of the cameras, and GaŽl really seems to like him as a person as much as a coach. Plus Rasheed already lasted longer than most of GaŽl's coachs so hope is allowed :lol:

Yeah I had a moment there when they began to warm up under my nose. Gilles was the closest to me and I went :spit: no, this handsome man can't be my cute little Poussin ! Honestly, he has an inconscious grace and lightness (lťgŤretť ?) that is seen a little on tv, but live and from so close... waouh quoi. But I looked a lot at GaŽl too, after the first 10 minutes of shock :lol:

Oh, I see what you mean for Gilles, I'm fascinated too when I get to see him in person. When I saw him in doubles with Jo in Hamburg, I completely forgot about the opponents during the whole match. The guys next to me were talking about Schüttler all the time, I was thinking they were quite the Shaker fanboys, really, and it took me AGES to realize they were talking of him because he was actually playing. ^^

Maybe it's the opposite for Gaël and he looks better in pics than in person, I can't judge since Gaël Monfils has been successfully hiding away from me for a while now! He always withdraws from the events I'm going to. He really doesn't like Hamburg. But he won't escape again this year - je l'aurai.

Argh, the board is bitching again.

The reps system is easier to explain in French:
Les points de rťputation, tu peux oublier. Si tu as eu trop de "bad reps" (quand les gens cochent "I disapprove" avant d'envoyer le message), les petits points en dessous de ton avatar passeront au rouge, je trouve Áa franchement douteux comme principe. Mais Áa ne risque pas de t'arriver.
C'est surtout un moyen rapide de faire passer des petits messages, de remercier, de dire qu'on a apprťciť un truc... Quand un post me fait sourire, je le signale ŗ la personne avec une "good rep", je ne trouve pas que ce soit d'un grand intťrÍt gťnťral de citer publiquement tout son post pour ajouter un petit ":lol:" en dessous. C'est drŰlement pratique, en fait, ces "reps", Áa me manque sur les autres forums.

Tu n'es vraiment pas obligťe d'y rťpondre. Mais si tu veux y rťpondre, il faut trouver un post de la personne en question et lui envoyer toi-mÍme une "good rep". Tu ne peux pas y rťpondre directement.
Je ressors le screenshot que j'avais fait pour soulage il y a peu de temps car elle avait le mÍme problŤme!
http://img297.imageshack.us/img297/9499/reprs1.th.jpg (http://img297.imageshack.us/img297/9499/reprs1.jpg)
Tu cliques sur le bouton avec une petite croix et Áa ouvre une fenÍtre oý tu entres ton message (il faut faire court).
Tu ne vois que les derniers messages reÁus, quand il y en a plus d'une page, les plus anciens disparaissent.
Voilŗ!

:rolls: I'm the same with Richard. He's the only one of my top 6 (the 4 Frenchies + Rafa and Mandy) that I didn't get to see up close. I only saw him once from far away in Bercy 2007, when he beat Jo, and I basically only saw the backwards cap. But you can't avoid French tournaments forever, Richie darling :devil:

You saw Gilles playing with Jo ! How was it? Aw, they're almost as cute as Gilles playing with Gaël (Yeah, I love to see the boys hanging out together :lol:) Are you the one who took those pictures of them playing together ? I know a few of them are around on the net, not taken by a pro.

Don't worry, Gaël was perfectly okay to look at, even a lot better than that :lol: He can go through so much expressions on his face or only with his eyes, it's so funny. But beyond the handsomness, what I enjoyed the most were all the jokes, the smiles and the sweet gestures they had for each other, like when at 1-0 in the second set, Gaël took Gilles' bottle first and gave it to him before picking up his own like it was all perfectly normal. I can't help it, I find it so cute and touching that they're so close. I'm such a fangirl :lol:



Argh, the board is bitching again.

It's not about Gaël, it was just a short report on a French TV show on Sunday about the new generation and the Davis Cup:

I made a summary here:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=8198019&postcount=84

As for me, I liked the part about Gaël, on the contrary. Gaël says he thinks he deserves to be on the team even if he just lost to Paulo, Gilles says the team should be Jo, Gael, Richard, Mika and himself in his opinion and the journalist goes on saying something like: "no cant, no false modesty: despite having never played yet in Davis Cup, Gael Monfils and Gilles Simon mean they can't be ignored."

Here's the pic in l'Equipe today, but there's nothing new in the article.

It's too bad he wasn't with the others in Roland yesterday for the press conference. He will probably not be on the team on Thursday either for the draw ceremony, so we won't have any pic of Gaël posing with the other guys in his DC outfit with GAËL MONFILS written on it?! I need that pic.

.....so we won't have any pic of GaŽl posing with the other guys in his DC outfit with GAňL MONFILS written on it?! I need that pic.

:) This will happen sooner or later, anyway. I know that everyone revels about Jo's mickey mouse tournamant wins, but I feel that Gael had the best French results in 2009 so far, too bad, that he also the injuries and stomach problems. Otherwise it would have been even better, I am convinced about that.

Keijan

Why do you think he won't be there for the draw ? If he arrives tonight in Ostrava, he should be there too, no ?

the graduate
03-02-2009, 05:23 PM
I am a Monfils fan but one thing that is disappointing is his failure to win a title he has been in a number of finals but that final push to win is not there.I watched the Acapulco match and felt like he was not serious enough to beat Almagro.
I think his losses in finals are psychological and needs to work on that aspect,I hate to see a player like him failing when it matters.I believe once he wins that elusive title we will see a champion in Monfils.
Good luck Gael!:wavey:

Truc
03-02-2009, 05:34 PM
Yes, it's frustrating and it's definitely a psychological problem, he admits it himself, it was so obvious in Acapulco again. But it'll make his next title only better. Supporting GaŽl Monfils is a lesson of patience anyway. :p

@ Marion: I just meant that if he's only 5th player, he won't be either in the official pics of the draw and the press conference of the draw ceremony anymore. It's just the 4 players who are on the team then.
But maybe he will be one of them. And he'll be in plenty of pics, I can't wait to see the pics of the DC dinner with the 4 guys together.

Oh that's nice, Puschkin, thanks!

He can't help flirting with girls imo, that's just how he is. I for myself couldn't care less about it.

I dont blame him the girls were kinda cute;) but keep your eyes on the ball,he is talented enough to at least be top eight in the world because he has beaten davydenko,roddick,murray,safin,nalbandian and a number of the big names.I hope he gets help soon before he gives up on winning titles.

Richard is just playing in doubles for the time being, Gaël was no option in doubles anyway. That was one of the points against him.
But it's tough to be top 10 and once again only alternate, of course, it will be bitter to watch his friends play when he has his best ranking ever, no wonder he looks sad in the pics.

But I can delete it if you prefer. (I'm the only one posting pics over there, so you don't need to check the thread, it's the same as here. :o)

I remember Rasheed played once in doubles with Lleyton in Rotterdam when he was coaching him, I'm not surprised to hear he's still playing quite well.
That's why I find it a bit silly too when people (like Tomic's father) say he's not a tennis coach, just a condition trainer. Rasheed has been a tennis pro, he's as much a tennis coach as the others?

thanks for the info and the pic! That makes sense now, his volleys were very very crisp, even with gael sending him some huge forehands. Their practice session was my highlight from the tourney this year for sure.

I find the outfit itself pretty bad, but it looks OK on Gaël imo because of his black skin and because he looks great in sleeveless shirts by definition. Now I hope they have other models for Delpo & Co!

Keijan

The outfit looks better on Gaël than on Bobby Reynolds, as expected.

Gaël's promotional event was harmless compared to Richard's:

Truc

I don't know, it's on the tournament website, it just says "Gael Monfils at the Party Tour in Mary Brickell Village on Friday night".
Robredo also posed with his cheerleaders, but it looks like only Richard had to "perform".

Delpo was wearing another version of the outfit, same design, but lime green with white stripes, it doesn't look bad. I prefer that to the red thing with the silver arrows.

GaŽl looks so cute on the bench. This time even I noticed the tatoos on the wrists in the pic where he has the arms crossed behind his head, they're really big.

(He should practice shirtless like the others when it's that hot! I'm usually not so much into shirtless pics, but GaŽl's body is a thing of beauty.)

That's everything but a failure, that's even exclusive stuff, thanks!
But is he already playing that good that he could be playing in RG in juniors? I couldn't find him on the ITF Juniors website.

I would love to see him play doubles with GaŽl, I'm a sucker for siblings playing doubles together.
(Coria used to say he wouldn't retire before having played together with his -adorable- little brother in RG, I'm still waiting, Guillermo...)

Truc

Keijan
04-10-2009, 10:56 AM
I hope he is! I read he was ranked 2/6 last year, which is pretty impressive for a 14 years old, but I don't know if it's good enough. Do they have to go through qualifs or something ? How do they decide who plays ? Even if he's not high-ranked enough, maybe he can enter the draw thanks to a WC :shrug: Okay, I just want to see him :lol:


His eyes are very similar to Gaël imo. He does still have normal hair, but for how long, with such a brother ? :p

Truc
04-11-2009, 12:59 PM
I have no idea how it works for the Juniors. :shrug:

I still don't find the resemblance very obvious, but I came across that old pic of GaŽl yesterday when he was a bit more "chubby-cheeked" and I can see it a little bit then:

Since we probably won't see any pics of Gaël in the next weeks, I just found a new pic of Daryl -not that good a pic, but...

And just to go back on that convo we had, I do think he's looking more and more like Gaël -well, a Gaël with a normal/boring haircut anyway :

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a349/Keijan/Keijan%203/naCS44_2278407_1_px_470_.jpg

For comparison :

"He needs to be patient for now, but he has the same potential as Gaël."

They write Darryl, not Daryl. How confusing :shrug:

"an identical style, physical and tennistic, to Monfils'" and "the current French players are already inspiring a new generation" which is a half-guess since my Portuguese skills are quite pathetic.


According to the Fed Cup commentators (we're staying in the World Group !! :woohoo:) he just won the second biggest junior French tournament in Beaulieu (after Roland juniors.) And according to his ITF profile he was ranked as high as 31 in the junior world.



(Le pauvre, encore un qui a pas été gâté avec les noms de famille : les blagues foireuses genre Gianni mina son adversaire commencent déjà à fleurir :lol:)



Not sure if all this should belong to the pics thread, if anyone has a better idea...

Since we probably won't see any pics of GaŽl in the next weeks, I just found a new pic of Daryl -not that good a pic, but...

And just to go back on that convo we had, I do think he's looking more and more like GaŽl -well, a GaŽl with a normal/boring haircut anyway :


And this is slightly off topic, but we have another Monfils-wannabe coming up :

Gianni Mina, from Guadeloupe, 17 yo (and 1,93m :help:), "the new Monfils" as this blogger calls him : http://blogdomassi.blogspot.com/2009/03/gianni-mina-o-novo-monfils.html
"an identical style, physical and tennistic, to Monfils'" and "the current French players are already inspiring a new generation" which is a half-guess since my Portuguese skills are quite pathetic.

(Le pauvre, encore un qui a pas ťtť g‚tť avec les noms de famille : les blagues foireuses genre Gianni mina son adversaire commencent dťjŗ ŗ fleurir :lol:)

I also think that Daryl looks a lot like Gael when he was younger:)

t'as trop raison :lol:

He's trying very hard to look cool and mafioso :lol: I prefer so much more when he smiles.
