Thank you very much for your very detailed reports Hangdog! Awesome. It makes us feel as if we were there and we understand perfectly everything thanks to your explanations...
And thank you for the article, Marine (where is it from? ).
Go have a look at www.daviscup.com too because they've just put audio interviews of Davydenko and Gasquet and there is a new article reporting what was said in the press conference and the different situations, preparations of the two teams etc...
PHM has a problem with his hips already? uhoh...
Arnaud does a bit too much... (he's usually a real live wire but this time it's "narcissic" humour so it's not that funny... but it's just my humble personal opinion)
So Davydenko crushed Andreev in a training match...he's definitely feeling better and his wrist is not so much of a problem it seems...
So Mika Llodra is the joker of the band, hum...interesting...
Davis cup radio is now on air too... So now you can hear the "la-di-da" voice that Guy forget takes when he speaks English...

Edit: Ok i put the article from daviscup.com:

Davydenko's wrist causing headaches for Russia (12 Jul 2005)

With three days to go before Russia and France play for a place in the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas semifinals, the health of Nikolay Davydenko's wrist is still causing concern among the Russian camp.

Already missing Marat Safin, who is taking four weeks off to let a knee inflammation heal, the Russians are heavily dependent on Davydenko, who was a semifinalist at Roland Garros and whose position of fifth in the ATP Champions Race testifies to the fact that he is having the best year of his career.

Davydenko withdrew from his second round match at Wimbledon against Jonas Björkman because of an inflammation in his left wrist. He rested the wrist before heading to Gstaad, where, after taking the first set 6-1 in his first round match against Sargis Sargsian, the problem flared up again.

"Nikolay will be ready to play on Friday," said Russia's captain Shamil Tarpischev, who, having celebrated Russia's Fed Cup semifinal triumph over the USA last weekend, is looking to become the first captain of any nation to steer his country to Fed Cup and Davis Cup success in the same year.

But the confidence from the players was less convincing. Mikhail Youzhny, who is expected to play second singles behind Davydenko or first ahead of Igor Andreev if Davydenko can't play, said: "I don't know who's going to be in the team. Marat has an injury, and we don't know about Nikolay's injury."

Davydenko himself said: "The doctors have said it needs a few more days of rehabilitation. I should be fit to play Friday, but we'll see."

Davydenko's problem presents a further headache for Tarpischev, who was at pains to stress that "Marat Safin is not out of the team, he has never refused to play for Russia, he is just injured".

But Safin played on all three days of Russia's first round win against Chile, and his absence inevitably prompted the question about who would represent Russia in the doubles. "Davydenko and Andreev have played together on the tour," said Tarpischev, "but it could also be Youzhny and anybody else."

If Russia's injury problems are adding to France's attractiveness with the bookmakers (some of whom are making France favourites to lift the Davis Cup in December), the French captain Guy Forget is taking no notice. The master tactician is still talking about Russia being the favourites, and talks about his own team as a "team of the future", with Richard Gasquet playing his first Davis Cup match on Friday, and Gaël Monfils brought along for the experience.

Even without Sebastien Grosjean, who is on holiday with his family to recover from an intense French Open and Wimbledon period, France look to have a strong team, with Gasquet and Paul-Henri Mathieu likely to play singles, and the doubles specialist Michael Llodra certain to team up on Saturday with Arnaud Clement, who is sporting a new severely cropped haircut in Moscow. "I like it because I like the feel of the hair grease on my hands," Clement joked at a news conference on Tuesday.

At that conference, Russia's journalists inevitably wanted to probe Mathieu about facing Youzhny, the man who came back from two sets down to beat the Davis Cup debutant Frenchman in the fifth and decisive rubber of the 2002 final. "It's no big deal," said Mathieu, "that was three years ago, and I've played Mikhail since then." Yes, but he has a 0-3 head-to-head against Youzhny, and their only meeting since the 2002 final ended in victory for Youzhny after Mathieu had again taken the opening set.

The speculation as to who will play will end on Thursday lunchtime when the draw is made. But Youzhny added a note of caution for those looking to pre-judge the tie: "I tell you," he said, "I think everybody from our team and everybody from the French team can beat everybody in this match."

Thank you very much Irina! Looking at the pics you posted, it seem that the Russian players aren't there. Were there separate press conferences for the two teams?
They've got dark shadow round their eyes... jet lag? (only two hours of difference but there's the long trip too...)

Ah ok. Oui desfois c'est un peu lourd. Il doit rivaliser avec Llodra qui est vraiment plus atteint je pense ( cf: nu ds ls le vestiaire de Ljubicic...) et avec Monfils qui a l'air pas mal ds son genre.
Donc bref, pauvre Paulo et pauvre Richard, qui doivent être complètement dépassés par ces energumenes !! LOL

Llodra et Nono doivent s'en donner à coeur joie c'est sûr et martyriser les autres...
Seulement on dirait que Gaël fait vraiment profil bas... il ressemble à un bébé sur la photo qu'on peut voir de lui, il se fait vraiment tout petit...(mais bon en même temps c'était une conférence de presse, bref rien de très marrant...ceci explique peut-être cela...). J'espère que tout va bien pour lui...

Yes, and Arnaud is really the specialist of press conferences ! Always talkative and at ease (I mean... interviews in french of course ).

L'Equipe, today:

Mathieu, Coupe à cœur



Depuis neuf mois, c’est en Coupe Davis que le Français a brillé avec le plus d’éclat. On l’attend à Moscou.

MOSCOU – de notre envoyé spécial

SAUF BLESSURE(S) ou tempête(s) sous les crânes, Guy Forget devrait aligner le week-end prochain Richard Gasquet et Paul-Henri Mathieu en simple, et la paire Llodra-Clément en double. Propulsé numéro 1 de l’équipe par les grâces du classement ATP (17e), Gasquet vivra pourtant à Moscou sa première rencontre de Coupe Davis. Rien n’indique a priori qu’il passera l’examen sans céder à une tremblote somme toute normale. Ce statut de novice renforce les responsabilités de son colocataire du simple. Malgré son jeune âge (23 ans) et une carrière hachée par les blessures, Mathieu bénéficie en revanche d’un vécu déjà solide dans l’épreuve. A fortiori depuis neuf mois et l’exploit réussi face à Carlos Moya, à Alicante, en demi-finale. Un exploit confirmé cette année, à Strasbourg, lors du premier tour contre les Suédois, où « PHM » sauva presque à lui seul l’équipe de France.

Confortée en creux par l’absence de Sébastien Grosjean, cette position de leader n’est pourtant pas revendiquée par l’intéressé. Une attitude qui tient simultanément à la philosophie collective prônée par Guy Forget et à l’absence de résultats individuels probants. Sur le circuit ATP, on peine souvent à reconnaître le héros d’Alicante et de Strasbourg. Ses meilleurs perfs (demi-finale à Metz, quart à Chennai, huitième de finale à Indian Wells) laissent un goût d’inachevé. « Aucun match de Coupe Davis ne m’a encore fait du bien pour ma carrière individuelle, souligne Mathieu. J’ai toujours eu du mal à confirmer dans la foulée. Je crois que ça vient du fait que la Coupe Davis me pompe énormément d’énergie. Je donne le maximum à chaque rencontre. Je pense que toute cette expérience finira par me servir sur le long terme. En tout cas, je l’espère… »

Outre une série de blessures (abdos, poignet, etc.), à même de décourager le plus indécrottable optimiste, cette inconstance doit aussi beaucoup à l’instabilité de ses relations professionnelles. Chaque coach semble inexorablement lui glisser entre les doigts… Séparé d’Olivier Soulès à la veille de Roland-Garros, Mathieu bénéficia un temps (mais un temps seulement, règlement de Coupe Davis oblige) des conseils de Patrice Hagelauer. Depuis, l’Alsacien était en stand-by. Une période (provisoirement ?) close depuis quelques jours, puisque Thierry Tulasne l’accompagnera cet été, dans le cadre d’un accord avec la Fédération. « On part ensemble jusqu’à l’US Open, précise PHM. Ensuite, on fera le bilan pour savoir si on continue, ou pas, notre collaboration. »

En attendant la tournée américaine sur ciment, Mathieu a retrouvé Moscou et la terre battue. Théâtre de son premier titre sur le circuit, en 2002, le Stade Olympique ne lui laisse que de bons souvenirs. « C’est très sympa de retrouver les couloirs, les vestiaires, et même l’hôtel, qui est le même que pour la Kremlin Cup, dit-il. Mais c’est également bizarre de voir ce court en terre battue et de devoir jouer en indoor en plein mois de juillet… »


Au vu de ses remarquables succès contre l’Espagne et la Suède, on pourrait croire que l’ocre fait automatiquement naître sur son visage un sourire béat. La terre n’est pourtant pas sa surface de prédilection. « Je vais peut-être surprendre pas mal de monde, mais je crois que la surface sur laquelle j’exprime le plus mon potentiel est le synthétique indoor, sourit-il. Sans doute à cause de l’importance du retour de service. J’ai grandi sur surface rapide. Quand j’étais jeune, je ne me posais pas de questions, je mettais des mines, à plat, des deux côtés. Je n’ai appris à lifter que bien plus tard, en Floride, chez Bollettieri. Là-bas, je me suis fait opérer du genou (ménisque interne), deux ans de suite. Pour ne pas perdre de temps, j’avais installé une chaise sur le court et je m’entraînais. Forcément, vu ma position assise, je ne pouvais plus frapper à plat. C’est comme ça que j’ai appris le lift, pour pouvoir frapper fort dans la balle… tout en la faisant passer au-dessus du filet. Aujourd’hui, je ne le regrette pas. »

Hier, lors d’un point presse organisé pour les journalistes russes, Mathieu ne fut mis à contribution qu’une seule fois. Inévitable, le sujet ne manqua pas de le faire sourire – un peu jaune. Il portait, évidemment, sur Mikhaïl Youzhny et la cruelle défaite que le Russe lui infligea lors du cinquième match décisif de la finale 2002, à Bercy. À ce souvenir, Mathieu oscille toujours entre ras-le-bol et autodéfense. « Je ne sais pas si je vais devoir l’affronter ici, glisse-t-il. Mais, si c’est le cas, je préparerai ce match comme un autre. Pour moi, c’est de l’histoire ancienne. Je n’ai pas la même perception de cette partie que la majorité des gens. D’accord, j’avais perdu, mais en donnant le meilleur de moi-même. Je n’étais pas passé à côté du match en prenant 6-2, 6-3, 6-2. J’avais donné mon maximum et j’étais passé à deux points de la victoire. Maintenant, si je pouvais le battre chez lui, en cinq sets, lors d’un match décisif, je ne cracherais pas dessus. Ce serait un scénario idéal. » On saura ce week-end si l’histoire raffole toujours autant des clins d’œil.

He mentions the "gallic rooster" as a justification... hum
He'd better not dare to show up like that to play the doubles
Thank you for the article Marine!
Good to read that Paulo is ok...Because he'll need to be 100%: the pressure is on him...He's got big responsabilities
It's already been posted by Truc and Skeiji in other threads but here's an audio interview of Forget and a new pic from the FFT site:

what is the significance of the gallic rooster anyway, why won't arnaud dare to wear that hair during a match?

yes i agree that paulo will have quite a bit of pressure playing the singles, although richard is the higher ranked player. paulo is the more experienced guy and last time he carried the team too. he's come a long way hasn't he lol
