Labamba just posted in another thread that "the selection of seeds for the Double events will be at the discretion of the ITF", so I guess they will be seeded.

Thanks, I believed it was based on the ranking. We'll see tomorrow but the teams with single players are also "good" teams.

Interview video Gael http://video.eurosport.fr/tennis/jeu...29/video.shtml
So funny to see how much he's still amazed, it's not disneyland, it's "l'insep...aux jo ! lol"

well, I "have to" go on holiday, so I'm not sure I will have the possibility to watch tennis during the OG, and follow the news on internet, but I'll try my possible to read every newspaper !!!! lol

ALLEZ LES BLEUS !

That is exactly what I was hoping for with Gaël, really enjoying his time there since he always seems so interested in all the sports except tennis!

So they're really training with FFT coaches and not with their own coaches?
[Or has Gaël already sacked Rasheed and that's why he's working with Pioline? Do you know if Wilander, Hagel, Malcor are in Beijing?]
I found these without watermark, but it's kind of small, sorry...

I don't think Wilander will make the trip. Patrice already took the credential picture so he'd better come!

Great pics, thanks! There are just a few lines in L'Equipe today, they say Paulo is the only one to have his own room in the Village.
Gaël and Gilles share one room and Arnaud and Mika another.

Well, that's convenient, Paulo needs to be well-rested, he's the best French hope now after having seen the draw!
("French hope" at the moment = win at least a match )

To my opinion Micka has the worst draw and Gael the best but I always think a medal is possible in single In doubles, both french teams have a tough draw and not an easy first round.

Nobody wants Paulo, not even Virginie?
Well, having his own room is very convenient for a lot of things

Beat the cutie Ernie for me, Paulo!!!!

BTW, I'm convinced that Gilles will do well here

Dominguez said all the girls are in the same big apartment.

It's really Disneyland for Gaël. Fighting with Teddy Riner (our big judo star for the non-Frenchies, 2,02 m, 129 kg - he doesn't look that big in the pic!):

Which inflatable bath?

I'm glad he's enjoying himself, but judo maybe isn't such a good idea just before a big tennis event. Now watch him retire from the tennis event because he got injured...

This inflatable bath:


I'm sure they didn't take it too serious But from the picture, they aren't that different in terms of their sizes! So look out, Teddy!
