Thanks a lot for all the pics of Szczecin you've posted in all the player forums, pingpong!

I took some pics of him in training and during the Montcourt match too, they're here:

Flo gave me a good laugh again, he acts so weird sometimes, talking to himself, etc.

At one time in training, he pulled down his pants a bit and stayed like that for ever, totally still, the pants half down, lost in thought, with his sparring partner waiting and waiting on the other side.
He probably was testing if it was too cold to play in shorts or not, I don't know, but he was looking crazy.
I took the pic too late, he had FINALLY made up his mind and was pulling his pants up. It's not funny when I tell it anyway, but it was to see.

This French guy was with him all the time, btw, does anybody know who he is? He was supporting him during his match too. He looked familiar, but I couldn't put a name to his face:

Casablanca QF

SF against Montanes today, Montanes thrashed him 6-3 6-0 in IW, but Flo said after the match he had no idea what happened to him, he was actually playing well in training before the match and had a blackout during the match. It happens with Flo.
Florent beat him in straight sets last year in the final of Szczecin on clay. Allez!

He will play the final against Ferrero after beating Montanes 64/64. I would prefer Ferrero to win since i love the rebirth but good luck to Florent

I will cheer for Florent, of course, I find him funnier than JCF! He really makes me laugh when I see him play in person.

Flo leads 2-0 in the h2h, but they've never played on clay:
2006 's-Hertogenbosch QF Grass (O) F.SERRA 6-3 6-7(4) 6-3
2009 Brisbane 32 Hard (O) F.SERRA 6-3 7-6(3)

And he plays Karlovic in the 1st round of Monte-Carlo, so carry on this good form for at least one more match after Casablanca, please, Florent.

Default Re: Florent Serra

Et merde, 4-6 5-7.

The article in L'Equipe today (before the final) was so typical again. The title: "Serra devient méchant" - Serra gets nasty/becomes a bad guy. He says he's too nice and being aggressive on the court is not something natural for him, he really has to force himself all the time, it's crazy.

A disappointed Serra who was desperate to make it three titles from three finals was able to take some positives from the tournament.
"I am disappointed, but it's my first final in 3 years, and I am very happy because I can defend my points from Estoril last year when I reached the semi-final and so I can stay in the top 50. I am happy with my game this week; I played a very aggressive game and I have to play like this every match. Even though I was more tired today, if I continue to play the same tennis it won't be my only final. I hope I will play other finals and win other titles."

Default Re: Florent Serra

I saw Florent quite a lot in Madrid again, but I don't know if it's worth writing a long report since he hasn't a lot of fans on this board (<- understatement).
I watched his match against Schüttler, I listened to his interview and conversation with the Canal+ journalists, I saw him practice with Gilles... Each time I go to tournaments, I bump into Flo everywhere. And each time I see him, he's playing really well and being so nice! He gave me such a nice smile when I wished him good luck for the next round, it made me melt.
"Mrs. Serra" was there, at the practice session too. Florent looked in good spirits, really. In the interview after the Schüttler match he sounded pretty confident for the next round and said he needs to beat one of the top guys anyway to go further in the Masters 1000 events, so Kolya isn't such a bad draw in his opinion.
But I watched Kolya yesterday against Troicki and I found him impressive, it won't be as easy as the Canal guys were saying ("sure, he's in poor shape atm", blablabla).

Saw the 2nd set of Flo vs Davydenko on TTC. Sending my good thoughts through the TV didn't help him win.

I just read about Flo's match with Djoker yesterday. Too bad he didn't win, but good effort!
