I'm kicking myself back to Paulo's forum now

The only problem is Monte-Carlo itself, but we were staying in Nice and smaller towns around Monte-Carlo like Menton and it was no problem to go to the tennis with the bus or the train.
I want to stay in Monaco but the hotel rate there is unbelievable I can buy a small house with that money

@ Puschkin: I wasn't following the Frenchies at the time, I didn't pay much attention, I just remember seeing Clément practicing with another French player, I don't even remember who it was... Santoro was practicing there too.
It's equally easy to go to the tournament venue with the bus from Nice and Menton. One night in Menton was more than enough for me, it's beautiful, but I preferred Nice by far - I'm a "Stadtmensch".

I really was just joking, Ome.
Like the "Waiting for Metz off topic discussion thread" they had in the Clément forum - this is a "Waiting for the start of Gaël's indoor season off topic discussion thread".

Back on topic:
He was in Metz today for signing etc. and according to the website, he'll need 2-3 weeks rest for his wrist.

In l'Équipe today:
Quote:
Monfils en pointillé
C’EST DANS UN MOUVEMENT « sauvage » à l’entraînement, la semaine dernière, que Gaël Monfils s’est donné cette entorse au poignet gauche qui vient de le priver du tournoi de Metz. « Je n’ai pas eu mal sur le moment, c’est le soir que la douleur est apparue, racontait-il hier aux Arènes, de passage pour des opérations de communication. C’est en essayant de comprendre que je me suis souvenu que, à un moment, j’avais dû m’appuyer violemment sur la main gauche. L’IRM a montré une entorse. Je vais être trop juste pour Vienne la semaine prochaine. Peut-être aussi pour les qualifs de Madrid. » Ça sera donc bon pour Lyon. Après le forfait à l’US Open pour cause de blessure à la cuisse, les contretemps s’accumulent. « J’essaie de positiver. Je trouve que, malgré tout, je retrouve le rythme rapidement à chaque fois. Je reviens à Bucarest sur un coup de tête et hop ! j’enchaîne cinq victoires (avec les qualifs). » En Roumanie, il était parti sans son coach Tarik Benhabiles, « mais il allait me rejoindre. On travaille toujours ensemble. Pas de soucis ». Pas de soucis non plus du côté de la Coupe Davis, puisqu’il fait partie des neuf joueurs reçus individuellement par le président de la FFT pour préparer la campagne 2008. « Elle va pas être simple à faire la prochaine sélection », dit-il. Alors il propose « Ouanna, Mamata (vice-champion de France juniors en 2004), Tsonga et Monfils, soit quatre Blacks, plus Yannick comme capitaine », lâche-t-il dans un grand sourire.
He made a bad move in training last week and sprained his left wrist. It's not sure if he will have recovered for the Madrid qualies, but he will be OK for Lyon.
He tries to stay positive despite all these injuries lately and means he always gets back to normal pace very quickly every time he comes back. Like in Bucharest, it decided to play there „out of the blue“ and won 5 matches in a row. Tarik wasn’t there in Bucharest, but he insists they’re still working together.
And then he’s asked about the Davis Cup again, the never-ending topic in France, lol. So he cracks a little joke and suggests a black team: Tsonga, Monfils, Ouanna, Mamata and Noah as a captain.

He's out of the qualies entry list of Madrid, that was expected.

Monfils forfait
Blssé au poignet, Gaël Monfils a dû déclarer forfait pour ce GPTL.
http://www.fft.fr/gptl/2007/

He hasn't recovered yet, he won't play in Lyon either.

Default Re: Indoor season 2007

He must be gutted to miss all his home events, poor guy, I was so disappointed myself when I saw the news yesterday.

And I seriously wonder if he will be ready for Bercy, here's what he said yesterday to L'Équipe, he's apparently still wearing a splint for his wrist:
« En fait, il y a eu un choc et j’ai une grosse entorse depuis un mois maintenant. Je porte une attelle et je me soigne. Je verrai au réveil comment ça va. Il faut voir comment le poignet réagit à froid et si je peux enchaîner. Mais bon, ce n’est pas terrible… »
He says it's just a sprain, but he also means it's not looking very good.

sorry for gael

Perhaps he better end his season from now ,recover from this injury training hard for 2008 in benhabiles camp in florida.
Then coming back strong for the Hopman Cupin which he could face great players such as djokovic,chela,berdych before preparing for the AO...
