Nicolas if you are reading this, lose the trucker cap. First of all it reminds me of Andy and secondly it looks like you are a farmer that should be on a John Deere tractor trailor. Or driving a 1972 rusted Chevrolet pickup with the confederate flag in the rear window playing Lynrd Skynrd.
I thought of that visual as well (coming from living in a small town for way too long) but Marlboro Man sounded so much more appealing

Maybe that's the image that Wilson wants him to project

Re: French Open!

Yes, I imagine Wilson is telling him to wear it. Although, I think the trucker cap would be a nice look for Serena

Surely there must be another Wilson cap he could wear.

Perhaps this one:


I think red would look good with his skin coloring. I look good in red and we are similar in hair color with olive complexion. He can wear that in press conferences and I think he already wears the white one while playing. I know cordinating his clothes isn't high on his priority list but I'm having fun with it

Re: French Open!

lol, I'm not sure if it's that easy for him to get rid of it. If Wilson tells him to wear it, that would be the contract and I've seen him wearing this cap at other press conferences too.

kek, I've attached the pics, just for the record to keep them here


BTW, does somebody know where to find a transcript from the press conference? On the Roland Garros homepage, they of course have one online from Canas today, but not from Kiwi

Trust me, I get enough of it in Texas and the look isn't appealing.

Re: French Open!

I don't know if anyone has seen any photos from today but on Yahoo there are photos from the press conference and he looks like the Marlboro Man *not sure if that reference translates...ask me and I'll try to explain *

Re: French Open!

I guess he will move up a few places to the mid-20s so far after this week. Best of all is that the margin to the 10 players in front of him is quite small and if this 1st round Wimbledon loss from last year gets some considerably good improvement, he will get another big push upwards for sure

Not that I'm only concerned about his ranking, but it would just too sweet to see him higher than in the 20s as we all know what he is capable of

Re: French Open!

Well 4th rnd of the French is a pretty good result considering he hasn't won back to back clay matches in 5 years. He will for sure move up the rankings.

He should be proud of this great run

Re: French Open!

I just saw that he had to give Willy the walkover. The first thing that I thought when I saw that was "his neck." After I realized that he was going to have to play again today, I was really wondering how he was going to be able to get ready. He was having pain and stiffness in his neck and there's no way to rush the healing of that. Especially in less than 24 hours. To get to the round of 16 was still good for him and I hope that he can be proud of himself.

Re: French Open!

"Ich habe mich pausenlos behandeln lassen und alles versucht, aber es ging nicht. Nach den ganzen Tabletten habe ich mich übergeben müssen und konnte kaum schlafen"

I got treatment all the time and I tried everything, but there was no way. I took pills against the pain and I had to vomit because of them and could hardly sleep

"Es ist irgendwas mit den Nerven, die ganze rechte Seite tut weh."

It has to be something with the nerves, the whole right body half is hurting.

"Es war eine brutale Entscheidung, endlich lief es wieder richtig. Aber ich fühle mich total schlapp."

It was a brutal decision after I finally got my game back. But I'm feeling physically totally down.

"Normalerweise würde ich mich jetzt auf die Rasenturniere freuen. Aber jetzt sage ich: Schade, dass die Sandplatz-Saison schon vorbei ist. Ich habe Spaß daran gefunden"

Normally I would be looking forward the the grass tournaments. But now I'm saying: Pity that the claycourt season is over already. I had some fun with it.

Re: French Open!

Just too sad that such things happen to him whenever he was on a good run.
Of course this doesn't happen in a Mickey Mouse tournament after he reached the 2nd round... no, always before big matches... bad luck!

but the positive thing is hopefully that it's "only" the neck and not again a wrist, leg problem, something like that... I hope he can get help soon for it, that should be possible. A good Wimbledon result would also be important, the 4th round of Roland Garros is a nice bonus, but the 1st Wimbledon round loss that stands so far in his Entry Ranking could need a bit improvement and on grass this should be possible I hope.

Get well soon Kiwi! really very bad luck!
