I just wasted one hour of my life, the show was worse than ever. They hardly let him say anything, they all have no clue of tennis, the jokes are pathetic... Who listens to this voluntarily and what is he doing there?
He sounds a bit sick, he has a very hoarse voice, but that was on last Monday.
He doesn't say anything new about the knee. When they ask him if the idea is to play the season to the end and wait for the off-season for a possible surgery, he answers there definitely is no surgery talk.
Being a "featherweight" is an advantage for his kind of injury, it's not too tough on his knee to keep playing, he can deal with it.
When he's asked about Forget, he says it's not his fault if they didn't do very well this year and Forget will obviously remain DC captain.
A listener asks him why they always lose in the 4th round in Slams even when they are the favorites on paper. He answers people in France only hear of the French players and don't realize the opponents are very strong too, same as in Davis Cup. For example in the Jo-Gonzo match at the US Open, he doesn't read much what people write, but if people said that Jo clearly was the favourite, it definitely wasn't that obvious to him. If you look at the Race, Gonzo was ahead of Jo, he's made a Slam semi already this year, it was definitely a 50-50 story and hence not a shocking defeat.
Another listener says it's always a pleasure to listen to Gilles and they should take him on the team of the radio show. The host of the show: "no way, he's way too expensive for us, he's already earned over 3.000.000 $ prize money" - Gilles: "Oh really?
" He sounds sincerely surprised and delighted to hear that, it's quite cute - but not worth listening to the whole crap.
