Re: 2014 Season, Fin!

I totally agree with laland, let's not forget that the team which played the final was the team which got France to the final playing really well, and as you say it's Jo fault if he didn't wthdrew from the final being injured. And I think that even if Gilles was gutted not to be picked, he would have been really happy to see his friends win DC, he's had no trouble to be 5th man 3 times this year if it was to help the team.

Re: 2014 Season, Fin!

I'm glad Gilles' not on the team, this way, I don't have to care who won. I am equally happy and sad for either outcome. Don't like Fed but I like Wawa, so. 2010 Forget picked Llodra over Gilles to play Troicki is a crime. But this one is different, I think Clement made rational choice, he has to take the double players, and he can't choose Gilles over Tsonga/Gael. Although, I must say, if Tsonga was injured going into this, then this loss is on him.

Gilloulou Well I'm usually not happy for other's losses but this losing scenario with Gasquet bombing on both put a little satisfactory smile, even smirk, on my face

I saw it too .

Did you see this? https://twitter.com/nicklester/statu...22150245842944

You know there's a part of Gilles who isn't really feeling all that bad at the moment as a result and who would blame him.

Think of L'Epique as kind of like France's version of our Onion News so to speak. They take factual stories as well as things that are rumor or perceived as fact and parody them. I thought the Gilles quotes were funny. Although in the case of Stan and Roger, there's totally some real tension there and I don't believe them for a second when they say otherwise. I mean how can there not be as well as a bit of resentment. I'm not the biggest Stan fan, but Mirka was a little out of line in my opinion. Let the boys handle their business.

Oh, ic. Didn't notice the different in spelling until you pointed this out, so thanks. Phew, was wondering what's Gilles on about. lol. On the other hand, that Stan/Mirka story is nothing but headache inducing. I tried to read that thread on GM but I can't get thru more than 3 pages and there's 37 pages and still on going. Idk, I am cheering for France but I don't want Stan losing his matches in DC, cos we know what he'll get if he loses the Cup and ruins the GOAT's GOAT status. When things go wrong, always blame Stan.

Very interesting. This Davis Cup final certainly has a lot of things in play here besides the actual tennis itself that are going to make things very interesting for both sides. The Federer/Stan drama though is actually pretty funny I think. But the Gilles phobia.

Edit: I guess I better clarify that this is a joke article to avoid confusion. Sorry.

He played a set against Gael yesterday, who was very happy to win it. It's cute even if he looks really uncomfortable

Re: 2014, Davis Cup Final.

Honestly, I kind of hope France loses for not picking Gilles. Probably for the best though that he's not playing. Hopefully he rests up this offseason and is ready to go next year. I always think Australia should be the best time of year for him so hopefully he won't be injured like last year.
