its not unfair but realistic.Im telling the truth point pointing the lack of good choices of forget.
Can you tell me what happened in 2002 finale??probably the turning point in paul henri mathieu career.I dont forget that.
Last year at Winstom salem and all the things being said,the forget bashing over gasquet who was n°1 in that team.I dont forget it.
This year he has perhaps with spain the best team ever to play a davis cup tie and you would want me to believe that his choice by sending a newdouble paire inexperienced team was a very sensible choice???
and then just after after the loss he reveals to the medias that there s no secret, this paire needs to play together in tournaments to play good and find automatisms.OK BUT WHY DOESNT HE ASK THEM BEFORE TO PLAY TOGETHER IN PREVIOUS TOURNAMENT??its just as cynical and simple as that.Its not about not respecting him or what,its about analysing his results with the french team those 4-5 years.
The result will be obvious: 00 win for France.Not a single semi finale. I mean the guy will be football coach he would be fired for a long time ago!!
fabrice santoro could be the key,the one would be able to make the right choices and make the team work perfectly.
And no.Even if tomorrow simon beat stepaneck and tsonga managed to qualify the team for next round,I would still have the same opinion about forget ability to be the captain.
