I hadn't even noticed they've changed the homepage over there, it's written in the first person now!
It still says he "should play" on Tuesday, but yes, it's starting to sound really official.

Thanks a lot, Marion - tu prends des risques de dire ça avec une accro comme moi. On va essayer de pas abuser, mais c'est noté!

Great find, Daniela, he was filled with admiration for Gaël's game!
The full video is here, for those who are interested:

There are mixed news about his knee, looks like yesterday's training session was tough again and they expect the problem with the knee to flare up at any moment. I understand he wants to give it a try, but it's going to be stressful to watch him play under those conditions!

i know this haven't any connection with monfils but please do you know where i can find ivanisevic's matches versus: becker (wimbledon '90), sampras (wimbledon '92), becker (wimbledon '94) and sampras (us open '96).

No idea, sorry.

Who hasn't had the disease of Osgood-Schlatter? The commentator (Arnaud Boetsch) had it, Golovin (co-commentator): "Moi aussi!", Gilles said last time he had it too, even the journalist of "Carrément tennis"...

The knee issue almost is a blessing in disguise so far for Gaël's game, he shortens the points, doesn't overdo it and is focused. It's weird to see him so close to his baseline on clay!
But Bobby is awful too.

On France2.fr (because the stupid TV is showing a random WTA match whose players I never heard about before), Laurent Recouderc is commenting Gael's match. Judging by his slow and low voice I could have swore for a few games that it was Chardy commenting

He's funny, he made a joke about yesterday, how he being from Toulouse was supposed to have the advantage over Paulo who is from Strasbourg, because of the heat on the court. But he's saying Paulo cheated because he used to train in Florida so he was more used than him to the heat

He's making comments about the time in the INSEP with Gael and Gilles too. Gael didn't change at all, always making jokes and being very natural and a lot of fun, and also that the guys used to tease him a lot about his glasses. About Gilles, the other commentator asks "you were in his room, right ?" and he answered "yeah, I was sleeping with him... I mean, uh, you know what I mean" Gilles didn't change at all either, the success didn't get to his head and they still enjoy hanging out together from time to time. It seems Gael & Ouanna were in the room next door, very close to theirs.

You're lucky, I would stay on france2.fr if I were you then, I turned the sound off here because Boetsch and Chamoulaud are getting on my nerves!

I hadn't even realized Recouderc is the same generation as Gaël.
I don't know him well, but he seems really nice and easy-going judging by the way the others talk about him. He makes me laugh, he's always snuggling up to another player in group pics.

Wow, Gaël is on fire!

Yeah but the quality is terrible I don't even see the ball. Plus Recouderc is gone now.

Amazing demonstration, but he signed himself after the match point and basically said he was only able to play thanks to God. I don't really like that

Last year's theme ("Pome!") was funnier indeed.

I just watched the match. Gael looked very very good! His movement looked free and he didnt seem in pain.

so glad he won, next opponent is Melzer like last year, good luck Gael
During the match, Gael was following Jo's match on the livescore and he was very happy when he won , sisi la famille!!
