T'es vraiment con, permets moi de te le dire. c'est tellement petit et facile, après coup, d'aller dire qu'il s'est planté dans ses choix alors qu'à un match près tout le monde en faisait un dieu. On brûle ce qu'on a adoré, encore et toujours.
D'ailleurs, forget, c'est le meilleur selectionneur que la france ait jamais eu en coupe davis, et peut-être bien le meilleur coach que la france n'ait jamais eu dans le sport. Il est juste parfait dans son rôle, et pourvu qu'il soit encore là très très longtemps, j'ai un respect immense pour ce monsieur, qui incarne toutes les valeurs que j'aime, et qui sait mieux que personne les transmettre à ses joueurs, au fil des générations.
Certains sports devraient s'en inspirer.

Rien d'autre à ajouter.

Journée de merde, ouai, mais vive cette équipe de france de tennis ! Ils m'ont enthousiasmé et fait vibré toute la saison, j'oublie pas.

Thought you were the one who wanted France to lose if Gasquet wasn't playing?

Simon is a poor Davis Cup player, while Mika always plays great tennis when it comes to Davis Cup. This weekend Llodra was not as good as always, maybe he felt the pressure, and he should take responsibility for the way he played the single today. Same goes for Simon on Friday, since Djokovic on Friday was far from being unbeatable. Stop blaming Captain Forget every time the team loses and start making players accountable too. After all, they were playing, not Guy.

it's a great day for Blackbriar we have lost

Forget is good captain surely a bit too safe in his choices not enough poker player Forget is the captain since 11 years for sure it's long then i don't know who could do a better job in France. Please not Santoro It's the player who make the win we have missed Jo and faced a good team that's all.

If he must stop it's not because of that final

I would have been so happy to see France winning today if Forget had picked Gasquet just once in the entire year! Not a single match! not even a dead rubber! enough. Gasquet is no worst than Simon or Llodra or Chardy. This is just segregation. As you quoted, Soulage 11 years is too much now. get rid of Forget. France needs a better captain and quickly. Maybe a real coach, like Mauresmo's one.

I'm really really not sure that I would pick Richard to play in a deciding rubber of a DC match however I don't think anyone has proved themselves a better bet. Certainly not Gilles. I love Gilles but DC doesn't seem to bring out the best in him. I think the scoreline would have been a lot closer though had Gilles played but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Default Re: Forget must be fired !

My critique to Forget is much more fundamental than his wrong choices for Belgrade.

1. His emphasis on doubles: Everywhere in French papers you read : the doubles will be crucial. How often has France won the doubles and lost a tie? Definitely in two finals. As Llodra is considered the God of doubles (certainly with merit), it is him calling his partner. This lead to Clément/Llodra twice, and while one really can't put blame on Clément, he ends up with very experienced, but old players.

2. This brings me to my second point: He just has not enough guts to bring in younger players at the early stages of DC, as his choices are limited because Llodra and whoever he wants to play with take up the spots.

3. He hardly ever goes for a gamble, he is too much afraid to lose than brave enough to win. And every year the pressure is mounting.

You mean the doubles should be played by singles player why not Richard, Jo and Jeremy that's it ?. The double has always be a french speciality but true it's less the case for young players. If i understand you we should have 4 guys in form in singles and make them playing doubles. It would let Bennet apart next years in a way. I also think it's the moment to try something else on doubles because Arno won't be call anymore and as a guy with good double ranking in france it remains only Bennet and Mika and i don't feel Bennet as a single option in the next years he would be called only for doubles.

We go back on the point that Forget asked many times to the young guys to play doubles and they don't do it. Richard with Jo or Jeremy, Jeremy with Jo. the guys must take their responsability because the talent of france is the depth of good singles players the more you have the more you have options. When you have says that you can forget that double is really a crucial point.

Gachassin says Forget is the man of the situation and Forget says it's the start of the story so he won't leave.

And blaming the home crowd in the post match interview... lame. It was far from being "hell" as he had mentionned before.

Richard, Jo, Jeremy and Julien could all potentially play singles and doubs matches. Do they want it enough to play regular doubs though? Thats the question. I don't think that Jo is injury free enough to risk the extra tennis. I wonder why Richard has played less doubs this year? Is that for injury reasons too.

I think Jo and Richard would potentially be a fab doubs team but ideally Jo should be playing 2 singles rubbers a weekend and not be playing doubs.

What was said about the home crowd Julie?

Yep, this is more or less what I am saying. Apart from the Bryans, there is hardly any special doubles pairing in DC, look around. Serbia, Russia, Argentina. The poor Czechs just have no other option than Stepanek/Berdych as the rest is so mediocre.

BTW: I did not ask for Forget's retirement, though I am not enthusiastic about him.

He said that he will raise this problem in the next meeting with dc captains.

This is just sour grapes. Nobody will take him seriously. Yep, it was nasty occasionally, but I thought it would be much worse.
