Thanks ! I will let you know if I can spot Gaël somewhere.... even if I can't see him getting Davis-Cup-like-excited on the bench for Rafa against Clément

Quote:
Monfils va jouer à Roland-Garros
La rédaction avec E.S. (RMC Sport) - RMC.fr, le 19/05/2009
Demi-finaliste l’an passé à la porte d’Auteuil, Gaël Monfils sera bien présent cette année à Roland-Garros.
Blessé aux genoux depuis Monte-Carlo, Gaël Monfils participera bien à Roland-Garros. Tout à l'heure, le parisien, 11e mondial et demi-finaliste l'an dernier, s'est entraîné durant deux heures sur le Central face à Marcos Baghdatis sans gêne apparente. Son entourage a décrété une communication réduite à son plus strict minimum, mais Patrick Chamagne, son préparateur physique, a néanmoins levé le doute : « Gaël donnera une conférence de presse demain pour dire qu'il va jouer. »

He's definitely playing in Roland ! He trained two hours this morning with Baggy without pain. He'll give a press conf tomorrow to officialize it

There is an article about his training in Roland in L'Equipe today.
It's pretty silly because when they ask Gaël himself if he's going to play, he answers: "Ask Chamagne (his physical trainer) if I'm allowed to speak or not. I've been given orders and I'll get scolded if I talk." Chamagne says Gaël isn't allowed to say anything indeed, so there's no point asking him if he will play, but he will announce it officially tomorrow.
The journalist says the decision to play is not surprising after having seen him training yesterday, his groundstrokes look so powerful. Rasheed said "Nice!" nine times, which is a lot. He was even sliding and after having won a set, he told Marcos: "First set won in Roland-Garros this year! I'm liking this! Et oui, Marcos, I'm trying to find confidence where I can."
His knee is still strapped and he was looking a bit cautious before jumping to hit a smash. His physio also had to change the bandage once during the training sessions. But apart from that, the knee (he's given a nickname to it, it's "the mummy") didn't seem to bother him much. He should give more explanations today after the Rueil exho.

Merci! He's calling his strapped left knee "the mummy" and his wrapped fingers "the dolls" I had missed them a lot, Gaël and his genuine crazy statements


I'm totally not getting the "I'm not allowed to talk" and "he can't talk but he'll play" part if they don't want the press to know, just tell them to attend the press conf the next day, and if they're going to tell anyway, why ordering Gaël not to do it ?


I'm still weeping about the lost haircut but it's good to see him back, boring hair or not

"poupées" (dolls) is the normal expression in French for finger bandages. But "mummy" must be a creation.

He said after his exhibition in Disneyland that it's 50-50, he's still in pain without the bandage on his knee, a withdrawal still is an option. He will also see how he feels after the Rueil exho to take a decision.

It's on Eurosport now.
Tu nous a tué tout le suspense, là, soulage...

He said he can play only half an hour without being in pain.
