I'm very curious to see how Gael's doing this year. I had the impression that he was sometimes very lucky with his draws last year. However, one can't climb up the rankings like that without playing good tennis. And he has the necessary talent for sure. I think between a YEC-qualification and a ranking between 40 and 50, everything's possible for Gael in 2009.
Yes it's the week before DC and the others frenchies are in Dubai or have rest but Acapulco is far away It's a good way to train for RG but maybe not the best for DC tie which is on hard court Well, maybe he thinks it's a problem to change surface and doing a long trip
