The selection is quite logical. Gasquet is useless of course, but well...
I prefer to see Chardy rather than Simon, who's never been good in Davis Cup. I keep a good memory of Jeremy's match against Austria, and the guy was so touched an happy to be there, the perfect DC player! Good to see him back !

Benneteau/Llodra for doubles I guess?
Tsonga/Gasquet for singles?

Anyway this R1 seems to be quite easy - and it happens in France.

I expect maybe a 4-1 with the doubles for Israel (with Erlich-Ram).

Gasquet can play single and double so I don't think is useless. Long travel and big jet lag so let's see how the players will recover. If Chardy or Tsonga go far they will be tired and won't be in for friday.

Default Re: Davis Cup 2013

In local newspaper the summary of yesterday. According that first day we should go with Jo and Richard friday and Bennet,Llodra on saturday. Jeremy has still a little pain in the knee and if Jo and Richard have no problems, Chardy should stay off the team.

Quote:
A quatre jours de leur match contre Israël, les joueurs de l'équipe de France ont pris leurs quartiers hier au Kindarena de Rouen, dans une ambiance détendue et studieuse.


Arnaud Clément (à droite) et Jérémy Chardy ont donné, dans la bonne humeur, la réplique à Michael Llodra et Julien Benneteau, les titulaires du double


Tout semble calme, en ce début d'après-midi aux abords du Kindarena, deux jours après le passage du champion olympique Renaud Lavillenie. Mais le rutilant palais des sports rouennais héberge pourtant d'autres prestigieux locataires, venus prendre possession des lieux dans la matinée. Une Range Rover kaki s'en approche d'ailleurs. En sortent, Jérémy Chardy et son bronzage très australien, et Michaël Llodra. Une autre « Range » se range, celle des « boss » : Arnaud Clément, capitaine de l'équipe de France, et Lionel Roux, l'entraîneur, flanqués de Julien Benneteau. A quatre jours de leur 1er tour de Coupe Davis contre Israël, les Bleus sont déjà sur le pont. Dans la matinée, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga et Richard Gasquet ont inauguré le revêtement indoor semi-rapide confectionné pour eux. Les deux « leaders » français, appelés à disputer les simples vendredi, délaissent momentanément la raquette pour le footing et la muscu dans un centre de fitness des Docks 76, à un jet de balle de là. Les autres entament leur tout premier entraînement sous les ordres d'Arnaud Clément. Récit.

14 h 15. Les équipes sont formées. Clément-Chardy vont se mesurer à Llodra-Benneteau, la paire titulaire de double en Coupe Davis. Deux cameramen envoyés par un des sponsors de l'événement (une boisson énergétique) les marquent à la culotte sur le terrain.
14 h 40. Petite pause et première discussion autour de la surface, que les acteurs comparent à celle de l'Open 13 de Marseille.
14 h 53. Arnaud Clément, retraité depuis maintenant plus de six mois, est resté très affûté. Mais peut-être a-t-il perdu l'habitude du frottement du grip : le kiné Corentin Ventre lui applique un bandage sur la main droite.
14 h 59 : Benneteau et Roux improvisent un match dans les carrés de service. Roux marque un point sur un let. « C'est bien à l'image de ton club de foot ça », lance le Bressan au Lyonnais, fan de l'OL.
15 h 12. Tsonga et Gasquet pointent leur nez avant de filer en exercices physiques. « Jo » s'arrête pour prendre la pose en compagnie de quelques policiers.
15 h 19. Premier petit match sous forme de tie-breaks, sans service. Comme Clément n'a rien perdu de sa vista et de sa mobilité, Llodra et Benneteau ne se baladent pas. Les perceuses viennent parfois couvrir le bruit des impacts de balle. Les cabines de commentateurs télé ne sont en effet pas encore installées.
15 h 46. Un badaud s'asseoit dans la tribune officielle. Benneteau lui lance : « Ah non, là c'est la place de Jean Gachassin (le président de la FFT). »
15 h 56. L'engagement est total, déjà : les deux équipes disputent cette fois de « vrais » échanges et Llodra s'arrache pour tirer un passing en bout de course et va presque se fracasser contre les panneaux publicitaires.
16 h 35. Benneteau a bien mouillé le tee-shirt. Il quitte la grande salle en soufflant : « Je suis rincé ! » Chardy, lui, semble ressentir une petite gêne au genou gauche, mais se montre rassurant. « Fais quand même des soins », lui conseille Arnaud Clément.
16 h 42. Séance de services de Llodra qui utilise comme cibles des bidons de boisson énergétique. La première valse dès sa deuxième tentative, du côté de son fameux service slicé de gaucher.
16 h 55. Llodra est cette fois préposé au retour, face à la mise en jeu d'Arnaud Clément. Il galère pour ramener les balles et râle : « Quand on jouait ensemble, tu sortais des merdes et maintenant que je suis en face, tu balances des mines ! » Les deux hommes ont officié à dix reprises en double en Coupe Davis, entre 2004 et 2010.
17 h 06. Benneteau et Chardy partis, Lionel Roux sert désormais de coéquipier à Clément. Pour accompagner Llodra, c'est... Bernard Montalvan, le frèle doc, qui s'y colle. Lorsque cet improbable duo s'impose, le demi-finaliste du dernier tournoi de Bercy lance à son binôme : « Doc, c'est ta présence physique qui leur a fait peur. »
17 h 11. Grand fan de foot et supporter invétéré du PSG, Llodra, pas vraiment chaud pour une séance de musculation ni pour quelques tours de pédales dans le vestiaire, finit par un tennis-ballon contre le préparateur physique Paul Quetin. Pour une victoire haut la main, 8-3. Comme gage, Quetin est alors prié d'exécuter 40 pompes après avoir refusé de faire le tour du court à quatre pattes.
17 h 30. Joueurs et staff quittent l'arène. Un petit resto était prévu en soirée. « Ce sera tout pour la semaine », prévient Arnaud Clément. Mais pour le reste, ça ne fait que commencer.
