Re: The video thread

The video the FFT posted on twitter was great too. Showed the whole day for Gilles, arriving, stretching, winning and entering the room of players after he'd won. Nice watch.

Kezzi I also love the moment right after he won where he just stands there for a moment. It's as if he had to take some time to realize he won it.
Too bad they didn't show the hug with Bennet, that was so cute too. And after hugging all the French, he went back to Arnaud and they hugged again. I love it when the Frenchies hug.

Highlights from his Davis Cup win. In the fifth set he hits some of the most beautiful forehand passing shots I've ever seen. And the hugs at the end are adorable. Must watch!

Re: The video thread

I'm dumb I thought you were talking about the one in l'équipe Well this one is kind of sweet as well, I guess!

Q : Huge match today. You just said in press, that you played a small role. We found him really "dense", since the beginning of the tournament he's really solid. Is that it, since he doesn't have a coach, some evenings you meet and you talk?

We try to help each other. He really helped me against Ferrer also. I think that Gael can have a great tournament here, I think that he'll have a chance of winning in every match and why not win the tournament. It will take some big performances but for the moment, he started well, he won four matches in a row which never happened to him before, I think, and it's good and I hope he'll continue like that.

Q : What do you say to him at the moment, when he plays this kind of matches, "you can go all the way"? Is that the idea? For you, if he beats Roger in the quarter final, if he goes to the end, would that surprise you?

No... well it's a huge performance if he manages to do that. If he beats Roger it would be less surprising to me than going to the end because it's playing the matches in a row that's difficult. I think he can do it and more than anything it's important that he finally understood that when he's focused, when he plays all the points 100%, that's when he's strong and he's winning in three sets, he saves energy for the big battles to come. And I hope he'll win.

Q : So you'll communicate by texts now?

Well I can see it for the match against Roger , there is one of two things I wanted to show him on video, from his match in Cincinnati and after he'll handle it on his own. (he uses "démerder" which is more familiar and absolutely impossible to translate )

Re: The video thread

First of all : hi everyone.

Long time "lurker" here, big reader of the french players boards, I'm a fan of Gilles and tennis in general of course. Please be gentle about my english . I Just subscribed to beinsports at my new place, and noticed the tennis homepage contained this very recent interview (4th of august). Didn't know whether to post it in the videos or the articles/interview thread.

Considering the majority of non-french readers/listeners I'll try to write a decent translation after his match (and Gasquet's, and lamonf's, doing pretty good vs Novak at the moment), or by tomorrow if I find the time to do so.

Have a nice evening everyone. And go Gilles

Re: The video thread

Funny interview with Dasnières de Veigy :

They speak mostly about memories, like that Gilles tried for two years to make DV learn a shot and it just wouldn't work. Also the fact that Carine always gives birth during the us open.

I think the best parts are when they talk about a double they did together (during interclubs if I remember correcty), roughly it goes :

DV : "The best double I did in my career was with you"
G "You played it all alone."
DW "No we did it together"
G :Well, I was there, I hit a few balls from time to time, telling you "it's great, keep going" but apart from that..."
DV "Do you think we missed a career in doubles?"
G "I definitely didn't. Maybe you did because I remember that day and I think they're still traumatised".

At least he's realistic
