For the Bennet highlights, it's a shame they didn't keep the part where he's drinking his glass. He smelt it and made a few adorable faces to the doctor like "you can't be serious, I'm so not drinking that"
Same here, I was hoping they would show it when I saw they had the medical time-out in the highlights. His expression and his smile were so cute that they showed it again in slow motion on the international feed I was watching! So we're not the only ones who loved it, it was a highlight for sure.
The highlights of the match against Rafa: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NRN9SMZW
I had missed the beginning when they entered the court, I hadn't seen GaŽl's kid! Rafa had no kid? Andy and Mario were so cute too in the afternoon.
Rafa had a kid, but I think he let him go when they passed the middle of the net. (ah I just noticed you could see him at the beginning of the first YT video)
Gael's kid is, excuse me, but so clichť
I remember Mario's kid couldn't stay still and had to run everywhere, it was making him laugh (yeah I drool over Mario laughing, what can I say ?)
By the way, do you know how one can download a match from watching it live streaming ? It seems it's what the girl who put it on YT did, but I have no idea how she managed to do that.
You mean because Gaël had a black kid? We don't know, it can be a coincidence or the kids could also pick their players and this boy picked Gaël, that's very possible.
I use Replay Media Catcher for Flash livestreams like on adthe.net or tennistv.com. It's not free, but there were a lot of offers to get it for free on the official website when I bought it (I just needed to rent 2 DVD on Video Buster).
Yeah but the only black player gets the only black kid, it's a bit... I don't know.
I don't think it's the kids choosing their player (or else Rafa would have entered the court with une brochette de gamins ŗ chaque bras ) maybe they had a little tournament and the winner got to be with Rafa, second with Andy etc. Or they just randomly attributed players to the kids, which would explain why GaŽl's kid was black. But it's not important anyway ^^
I find this custom very cute, I wish we'd see that more often.
No actually it was a coincidence Rotterdam has a large black community, so naturally a lot of black kids got to walk on court with the players. And the kids didn't get to pick their players, but they flipped a coin over it So it really was a coincidence.
Thanks for all the vids His english is pretty good It's a shame you can't find more interviews in english on YT.

The highlights are a real joke, he was totally dominating the first 2 sets and they kept only one point won by Gaël. His post-match statements were deceiving too, all the articles were pointing it. Rasheed was looking perfectly fine during the match, he just started looking a bit annoyed towards the end of the 2nd set because Gaël had been wasting so many chances, one could sense he was going to pay for it.
