My guess is that those "personal problems" were probably him being homesick after flying from Acapulco to Ostrava then back on the American continent where he lost first round. (I really hope it's nothing worse)

He had a whole week left so honestly I consider it a good decision that he came back to Paris to see his family and friends. Let's think human, we know how difficult it is to go from tournament to tournament while being far from home. A sad and homesick Gael is not a winning MS Gael. And honestly, I couldn't care less about the american masters. It's good he went through that first round, but if he loses tomorrow, no big deal, let's just rest a little more and have fun in Paris before the clay season actually starts. We need him to be happy, right

If he really was just feeling homesick, he could have made friends fly over to Miami. He often does that for the never-ending US Spring events, Maman Monfils was there last year, his friends of Le Carré...
I have no idea and we will probably never know, but it makes sense to me there was something bothering him a little bit because I found him unusually nervous against Isner.
(And I for myself can't stand those two tournaments either, but Gaël always answers Miami is his favourite tournament outside of France, so I think he would be happy to do well there, even if the clay season clearly is the priority for him this year.)

The article in L'Equipe:
Quote:
Monfils se remet en route
Le Français a remporté un match sérieux contre Michael Russell. Un bon retour aux affaires après la déception d’Indian Wells.

SUR LE PAPIER, certaines victoires ne paient pas de mine. Hier, Gaël Monfils, 10e mondial, a battu Michael Russell, 241e , en trois sets. Rien de glorieux, pas même sur le court. Et pourtant, ce succès à sa main pourrait faire beaucoup de bien au Français. Il met en effet fin à une série de faux pas qui pouvaient le faire sortir des bons rails sur lesquels il circule depuis quelques mois. À peine remis des joies de son accession au top 10 et d’une place en finale à Acapulco début mars, il avait ensuite traversé des temps plus troublés. D’abord en ne participant qu’en tant que remplaçant à la défaite de Coupe Davis d’Ostrava, puis en produisant un mauvais match contre John Isner à IndianWells : « Mentalement je n’y étais pas », disait-il alors. Peut-être à cause de ces problèmes personnels qui l’obligèrent la semaine dernière à ajouter un aller-retour USA-Europe à celui qu’il avait accompli deux semaines plus tôt entre Acapulco et Ostrava. «J’ai dû rentrer à Paris, expliquait-il hier, surtout pour évacuer ces problèmes et les régler le plus vite possible. »
« Mais aussitôt descendu de l’avion (mardi), il est allé s’entraîner », soulignait hier son coach, l’Australien Roger Rasheed, un acharné du travail qui avait récupéré à Indian Wells la semaine précédente un Monfils tracassé : « Il était très déçu pour l’équipe. Il n’a probablement pas vécu en Coupe Davis l’expérience qu’il espérait vivre. Il n’en est pas revenu dans un bon état d’esprit. Or une Coupe Davis devrait vous laisser dans un état positif. J’ai eu de multiples conversations (téléphoniques) avec lui pendant qu’il était là-bas, pour m’assurer qu’il restait bien avec les gars. C’était important pour lui. Gaël pensait sans doute qu’il allait jouer. Il n’en a pas eu l’occasion. Mais c’est le passé et je suis sûr qu’il aura sa chance dans le futur. Il adorera ça. » Les inquiétudes de la semaine californienne justifient donc la satisfaction de l’entraîneur au sortir d’un court balayé par une brise moins forte que la veille mais soutenue : « Le très bon point a été l’état d’esprit de Gaël : il a accepté les conditions. Ça n’est facile pour personne. Il est difficile de jouer son meilleur tennis. Il faut l’accepter et il l’a fait très bien. Par le passé, le vent n’était pas son ami, nous essayons d’en faire un ami. Et puis Russell, qui a souvent été blessé, est un garçon très solide, qui ne vous donne pas le match. »

Un nouvel ami : le vent
Genre de bulldog à poil bouclé et aux biceps de culturiste, l’Américain s’était fait un nom en devenant l’homme qui avait poussé Gustavo Kuerten à dessiner pour la première fois un cœur sur le central de Roland- Garros en 2001 après avoir sauvé deux balles de match en huitièmes de finale. À trente ans, il n’est sans doute plus aussi rapide qu’à ses beaux jours, mais il a gardé tout son mordant. Une excellente entrée en matière permit à Monfils de mettre la main sur le premier set : «Au premier j’ai très bien joué, se réjouissait-il. Au deuxième j’ai voulu aller un peu trop vite. J’ai trop pris de risques sur mes retours. J’ai eu des petites sautes de concentration. J’ai eu parfois du mal à construire mes points. » Une double faute lui valut de perdre un mini-break initial au tie-break. Un coup droit sorti d’un rien lui coûta la manche. Le trouble persista jusqu’à ce que le Français ait à sauver trois balles de break à 1-1, 0-40 au troisième set. L’alerte sembla le stimuler. Trois bonnes claques au service ; un pas en avant ; un surcroît de poids dans les frappes, et Russell dut lâcher prise, à la grande satisfaction de Monfils : « Je tapais bien la balle, c’est bon pour la suite. »
La suite porte un nom, Marat Safin (23e ), son camarade d’écurie sous la casaque de Ion Tiriac et qu’il a déjà battu deux fois par le passé. « Mais, se méfie Rasheed, c’était une autre époque. Gaël n’avait rien à perdre. Maintenant, c’est lui le mieux classé et c’est Safin qui n’a rien à perdre. »À moins que le meilleur ami tout neuf du Français, le vent, ne fasse perdre la tête à un adversaire plutôt volatil.

Default Re: Indian Wells & Miami 2009

A summary, it's pretty interesting imo because it also gives Rasheed's perspective of the past few weeks:

It was a serious first match after the disappointment of Indian Wells, even if it doesn't look so great on paper. The kind of match which might do him good since he's had a pretty rough time after entering the top 10, with the DC tie spent on the bench and the bad match against Isner in IW. "I wasn't there mentally", he was saying after the Isner match. Maybe because of those personal problems which forced him to go back to France again last week. He doesn't give more explanations about it, just says he wanted to sort them out as fast as possible.
Rasheed stresses he resumed the training immediately when he arrived in Miami on Tuesday. Gaël seemed worried when they met again in Indian Wells after the Davis Cup: "He was very disappointed for the team. He probably didn't have the DC experience he was hoping for. He didn't come back from Ostrava in the right state of mind. A DC tie should put one into a positive frame of mind. I called him a lot when he was in Ostrava to make sure he stayed with the other guys. It meant a lot to him. Gaël probably thought he was going to play. He didn't get the chance. But that's over now and I'm sure he will get his chance in the future. He will love it."
These worries after IW explain Rasheed's positive assessment after yesterday's match: "The very positive point was Gaël's state of mind: he took up the conditions. It wasn't easy for anybody. It's tough to play great tennis here. One has to get over it and Gaël did it very well. He used to dislike windy conditions, but we're trying to turn the win into a friend. And Russell has had a lot of injuries, but he's a solid player who won't gift a match away."
Russell isn't as quick as he used to be, but he hasn't lost his punch. Gaël took an excellent start, but says he rushed a little bit in the 2nd set, took too many risks in return, had a few lapses of concentration, had sometimes trouble constructing the point. A df cost him his mini-break in the tiebreak and he lost the set on a forehand which was just wide. This bad patch carried on until 1-1 0-40 in the 3rd set. The warning seemed to shake him from his confusion then. Three big serves, more weight in his shots, one step forward and Russell gave way. Gaël: "I was striking the ball well, it's a good sign."
He will now play Marat. He's beaten him twice on hc, but Rasheed is cautious, says it was completely different at the time because Gaël had nothing to lose. Now he's the one with the better ranking and Marat can play without any pressure.
And the journalist concludes by saying that maybe Gaël's new friend - the wind - will help him again against an opponent who can vanish into thin air sometimes (I don't know how to translate the pun, I hope you get the idea).

Avoir deux copains pour jouer à la PS2 le soir à l'hôtel ne remplacera jamais une semaine dans la maison familiale, entouré des siens, et des soirées avec sa bande de potes de toujours dans des coins qu'on connait depuis tout petit. C'est ça, "feeling homesick", c'est loin d'être anodin et je pourrais perso écrire un roman là-dessus.

Bien sûr qu'on n'en sait rien et qu'on n'en saura probablement jamais rien. Et tant mieux, encore heureux qu'il ait droit à sa vie privée.



Thanks for the article. I had a feeling the DC drama wouldn't have gone smoothly on him, both the non-selection and the loss, and I suppose that seeing Gilles so upset and devastated didn't do Gaël any good either.
If Marat is in a good day, it's going to be very, very difficult.

merci françoise pour l'article.

C'est sympa et rassurant de savoir ce qui a pu le perturber,ce qui n'a pas été car sa defaite à IW ne presageait rien de bon...
j'espere qu'il avancera dans ce tournoi etape par etape avec un niveau de jeu de plus en plus solide et constant surtout.

Allez gael,bon match

What was the warning he got? I'm assuming a time violation?

Good luck against Marat If a good Marat turns up, it'll be a very tough match. If not, well it'll still be tough but it'll be slightly easier I think he can beat both Marats though

He didn't get any warning, it's just a poor translation, the BP he had against him at the beginning of the 3rd set were a sort of warning ("do something or else you're going to lose this match!")

Exactly! I'm not saying it's in the bag already, but he doesn't need to cross fingers and hope Marat will go nuts with the wind and self-destroy. If Gaël plays well, even a focussed Marat will have a hard time against him.

There are a few stories about Marat and Gaël practicing together - Marat telling him once after a practice session "but how the heck are you ranked so low, Monfils?" or being really angry at Gaël, on the contrary, for playing rubbish and being just a waste of time for everybody. But I've never seen them play each other, I'm really curious to see that match.

I also think Gael will win this match, I've watched both matches they've played in the past and Marat wasn't playing that bad actually especially on both second sets where he had his chances; it's just that Gael was playing the key points better than him on both matches;
Let's hope for a great match tomorrow and may the better player win good luck Gael and good luck Marat

Gaël's summary of the match:
“It wasn't a good match for me today. I played very badly. I mean, I just survived. I never give up on the court. I had luck because he missed two shots on his match point, but purely tennistically [sic] it was very empty today. Nothing. Maybe I had a good serve sometime.”
Poor boy, I know his game was a mess, but it still was entertaining somehow.
He seems to say he just couldn't play in a different way yesterday, I thought it also was his tactic to try to unsettle Marat with tons of slice and dropshots and slow shots rather than playing his own game, he often does that for some unknown reason.
Has anybody found a longer statement? I don't have time right now.

Default Re: Indian Wells & Miami 2009

Grrrr, I hadn't seen they have his interview on the tournament website, I thought it would be only Fed & Co, as usual:

Q. It seemed like Roland Garros out there. Did you notice all that? Did it just help you come back from that 5-2 deficit?
GÄEL MONFILS: Yeah, of course. I mean, I very enjoy it. Every time, it's very nice. When you have some support like that and even from the American and saw a lot of Frenches on holiday I know during this period. So I feel, yeah, I feel comfortable on the court. Definitely helped me in the end of the match.

A lot of French players are up right around the Top 15. What does it feel for you? Is this a pride thing when your countrymen are doing so well in the sport finally?
GÄEL MONFILS: I mean, it's an individual sport, so, I mean, it's okay. I'm happy for them. But still, it's an individual sport, so I'm happy for the country. But I look at myself.

Q. Is Roland Garros still the ultimate dream, to win the French Open as a French person? And how tough is it that Rafael Nadal is the barrier that you must climb over?
GÄEL MONFILS: I mean, before, to think about Rafael, you got some other that are very tough. Yeah, for sure, it's a dream for French guy. Still, we work on it, and then, no, we never know. In two weeks, I mean, we never know if you play your best tennis. We don't know the condition and don't know how you feel. Every year I still believe I can get it.

Q. You have Andy Roddick next. He's a tough player, obviously. What do you have to do to beat him?
GÄEL MONFILS: Yes, I'm not going to tell you. I will keep it for me. But yeah, it will be a tough match. We will see.

Q. Safin is talking about retirement. Did it seem like this guy is a guy that looks like he's ready to retire?
GÄEL MONFILS: He's still compete hard and hitting very hard and flat the ball. It's his choice. I mean, he will be missed for the tennis maybe, but maybe if his body is sore or can't have he motivation to travel around the world every week, so I mean, sometimes you can understand.

Q. Seemed like you were just trying to make him miss, just taking pace off the ball until he made a mistake. Was that your strategy a lot?
GÄEL MONFILS: Zero strategy. Nothing. My mind was empty.

Q. What do you mean?
GÄEL MONFILS: I mean just pushing the ball back and see what happened.

Q. Really? That's what you were doing?
GÄEL MONFILS: Yeah.


Q. Do you feel like you can get to the top, doing that kind of game?
GÄEL MONFILS: No. It wasn't a good match for me today. I played very bad. I mean, I just survive. In pure game, zero.

Q. But you never give up. Is that something you're proud of?
GÄEL MONFILS: This is part of me. I never give up on the court. I had luck because he miss two shot on his match point, but purely tennistically [sic] it was very empty today. Nothing. Maybe I have a good serve sometime.

I am amazed how he's "lucide" about his level of game in that match, what were wrong and still was playing that crappy tennis

I hope he' ll have a real tactic and plan against roddick cause this one wont be as "generous" as safin.

Allez gael go

Why are you amazed, you thought he just doesn't realize it when he plays passive tennis? But if he had no punch in his game yesterday, what else could he do?

Somebody was wondering on gaelmonfils.com if it's his first match after having saved MP, I don't know the answer, did the French commentators say anything about it?
