I think we probably look at stuff from a girl's point of view, (difficult not too when you're a girl ) if a girl says "I'm a little less close with this person" she probably means something a bit more. When men say it, they mean it as they say it. Girls are just too complicated

he does it in such a nice voice though most of them do talk nonsense. My fave commentator was Dan Maskell but you may be too young to remember him

I didn't know Mats coached P-H M. You do learn something new every day!

I can assure you there is no bad blood at all between Richie and Gilles Gilles is exceptionnaly close to Gaël and Jo because of the past they share (sleeping in the same room for years when they were teens, training together every day back then, etc.) So of course he would be less close to Richard, as with most of the other Frenchies, but they never spoke bad of each other, quite the contrary. Richard always said how he found it normal that Gilles was top ten, that he deserved it, etc (there weren't that many Frenchies to recognise it) and Gilles always acknowledged Richard's talent, he also said Richard was the kindest of them all.

They also said that being French number 1 seriously doesn't mean anything, they don't fight for that kind of reward. And I think Gilles was angry towards the medias who made Richie a living god, not towards Richard himself (cf his "Richard should have told them all to f*ck off, he's too nice" )
So really, no problems there

I have to agree with you Vicky ... I love Mats Wilanders voice. I could listen to him forever!!! You're right though in fairness. We are too complicated and I guess I was trying to over-analyse things which I have a habit of doing! Keijan, what you said makes sense. Gilles' anger probably IS at the media and not at Richard himself. It's probably just the media sprouting BS and trying to stir things up. Like I said, it was my over-analysis that caused the problem. I'm glad it caused you to post such a cute pic though Keijan. Thanks!

PHM probably said something really innocent like "It would be great to be French number one" and that has somehow become an intense rivalry according to Wilander. The commentators just want to generate their own headlines a lot of the time. Pat Cash being a prime example. I only mentioned what Wilander had said as I genuinely didn't know.

I've seen that before, I read somewhere that Gilles has a thing for peanut M&M's and then I saw that pic of him eating them and it just made me laugh.

It never fails to amaze me how things get blown up in the press that start off as little innocent comments ... Andy Murray is a case in point. He made a joke to a reporter about not supporting England in the World Cup and all of a sudden Andy Murray hates England and English people. He was vilified in the press for what was a complete and utter joke. The press do it all the time to everyone. They love putting their own spins on things. We, unfortunately, take the bait sometimes though

I thought you had seen them all before ! There are the other two :





He's eating M&M's... the green ones, it seems if he's still eating them, no wonder he has some "problems" during his matchs !

They look so young! Gilles is really intent on eating his M&Ms and tuning out the rest of the world, huh?

They do say that green M&Ms have some special caracteristics, which would explain a few things that happened to Gillou lately

Maybe "freakin adorable" is indeed the word you're looking for to qualify Gasquet
