I don't think throwing formal dinners for groups of grown men dressed in identical attire is a good idea, they should all be required to bring dates so that the pictures are more interesting

Their faces at dinner

Richard is the first to be surprised by his selection ! LOL

yahoo
Comment Gasquet est-il arrivé à Toulon cette semaine ? Grâce à un coup de fil matinal de Guy Forget qui a réveillé Richard en sursaut : "J'étais encore à Acapulco quand Guy m'a appelé", a expliqué le Biterrois pour L'Equipe ce matin. "Franchement, qu'il me convoque comme cinquième m'a étonné. Je trouvais tout à fait naturel de ne pas être dans les quatre. Mais ça fait plaisir de retrouver le groupe."


Mika played with 6 different players in double

No problems Gael is playing well with great serves and great defense very powerful while kohli plays really badly and his serve is quite poor. 6/1 in under 30minutes it looks good. Gael should win this easily.

it was a little crisis the debreak now and Gael refinds his serve. Kohli wake up so it must a more close but Gael is on the way and Kohli isn't playing as well he can do.

I don't get why they picked Toulon if they don't have a better indoor stadium, it's not like Southern France badly needed to host a tennis event. I'm watching other ties on the livestream at the same time, like Switzerland-Spain, and Toulon looks really small in comparison.

It looks small that's true and too much blue
Since Kohli missed the BP at 4-3 in the second set it's finished. Gael has been very focused with great period on serve, big defense but i found kohli not good like the year has started indeed.
BB will surely not resist to Jo and we should be 2-0 tonight. No problems but it was expected.

Yes, that was Simon. I think he came yesterday or maybe before? I read that he practised doubles with Richard vs Llodra & Benny. It is so good to see all the Frenchies together enjoying themselves. Good Luck boys!

Well done Gael! I'm really glad for him.
Jo is extremely patriotic as I see

Default Re: Davis Cup 2010: France against Germany

Hey I just came back from the first day. So, what I can recall so quickly after :

About Gaël's match, from where we were it wasn't a great performance, but he did the job -I was just so anxious about him losing that I didn't pay a lot of attention to his game level. He was pushing a lot at times, not being enough aggressive in my view, and playing too much on Kohli's backhand. I was eating my nails during the tie-break. It was such a relief when he won.

The really funny part was his interaction with Gilles who was sitting on the bench during the whole match and whispering stuff to him during the change of sides -we were joking that he was listening to him a lot more than to Forget Here is the real captain When he wasn't giving tips to Gaël, he was sharing his view about like everything with the poor Richard whom I felt sorry for, because Gilles was speaking aaaall the time to his ear.

The cutest part was still Gaël's hug with Gilles, they cuddled for like 2 whole minutes, grinning all the time. Very sweet moment. I took a rafale of pics which I'll try to post later on, if they're good enough, as I didn't watch them yet.



Jo's match was more tennistically interesting, at least as far as I am concerned -I always find that seeing live and from up close Jo's powerful forehands when he like takes off and flies, one of my favorite experiences in tennis. He choked badly in the third, losing his break, his concentration and the tie-break, but overwise he was above his opponent. The crowd was crazier in his match than in Gaël's.

I did spend a lot of time watching the bench too, they were making us laugh a lot. Benneteau and Llodra left during the first set and didn't come back. But at some point they were sitting like Gilles, Richard, Gaël, and Gilles was chatting to Gaël from above Richard's shoulder and the poor boy was like "take me out of here" I believe Gilles doesn't shut up, never.

There were a few more funny moments, like Richard coming in carrying Gaël's bag and at the end of the match, Gaël giving his bag to Gilles who accepted it with a "ok but just because you won for the first time" look. Gilles' haircut was... explosive too, it took us a while to get used to it.

I had a lot of fun, hoping this continues tomorrow

(If someone wants to repost what I say here on the player's forums, I won't do it now because I don't have a lot of time available on internet since it's expensive. Not that my insight is that interesting anyway )

It seems they have found a team spirit this time not like in the past ties even it's more easy when everything go well on court.
