Thanks for the recap Fran That surprises me he's never met Noah before. I wouldn't imagine there would be competition for DC between the four of them, but do you think the guys who usually play doubles (Llodra & Clement, right?) are a little miffed about the situation? I wonder what their chances of being on the team are.

Edit: Looks like Llodra is in. http://www.sport365.fr/tennis/coupe-...-Gasquet.shtml

The article is pure speculation of a journalist, Laureen, it doesn't mean anything. But yes, it will take very poor performances of Llodra to kick him out of the team. He has priority over the entire French tennis for Forget (there was an article about Forget in L'Equipe last year with the beautiful title "Gaga de Mika" = "crazy about Llodra").
Gilles seemed indeed to talk again about the spirit between the four guys only when he said that (we all get along so well, no jealousy between us, blablabla), I had the same reaction as you by listening to him.

I mean this article:

I wonder how true that is? When Matts Wilander was commentating on AO he said that when he coached PHM, the competition between the French guys was really fierce and that the only thing that mattered was who was French number 1. Other rankings didn't matter to them.

There definitely is intense rivalry between Gilles and Richard. There's no denying he's close to both Gael and Jo but there definitely isn't too much love lost between him and Gasquet no matter what they say. Yeah, I remember hearing on the commentary at Shanghai I think it was and they were saying how importan the French #1 was for the French boys because of all the prestige and commercial appeal it brought with it in France so it would make sense that it's incredibly important. I didn't know Mats coached P-H M. You do learn something new every day!

It's just my own personal opinion mainly but I have read an interview where Gilles admits he's not as close to Richard as he is to the other two. I think he said something like 'I get on with Richard a little less well' or something like that

I think he said that because they just aren't close friends. They haven't hung out as much as Gilles and Gael or Gilles and Jo. I don't think he was implying that there is an intense rivalry when he said that.

If memory serves, it was more along the line of "I am a little less close with Richard", which I think is very different.

A little article explaining why there's a little animosity between Simon and Gasquet. I'm not saying they hate each other I was just saying really the other three are close and then Richard and Gilles wouldn't be as close as the others that's all. I'm sure Gilles is friendly with everyone he has that type personality I think

Hell yeah theres some bad blood. Gilles is friends with everyone, he is a cool cat, but some people can rub others the wrong way due to immaturity. I think it is mostly due to miscommunication, but Gilles and Richie are not exactly close friends. Richie has always kicked his butt in their head to heads, and he was pissed at the Davis Cup tie against the US.

Just a comment from the author of the article I posted just there

I hope no-one is offended by my posts I just posted my own personal opinion which is by no means definitive because, at the end of the day, I don't know Gilles or Richard so I don't know the true nature of their friendship/rivalry. Apologies if I've offended anyone once again
