Default Gianni Mina: GMV2 thread

Looks like Gael monfils has a clone on the junior tour. He is born on 9th February 1992 (17yrs old) and will play in the semi final at RG after he beat the third seed, the Argentinian Andrea Collarini. He is a tall guy (1M88), from Guadeloupe, and his favorite surface is clay. He has a very good serve, runs very well, and has a double handed backhand.


In 2009 he won one G1 (Open International Juniors de Beaulieu sur Mer), and one G2 (Istres International Junior Tournament), both in France and on clay.
He was also finalist at the Banana Bowl (Brazil, G1, on clay) and at the Solarwood Luxembourg Indoor Junior Open (G2).
Overall he has won so far this year 23 matches on clay for only 4 defeats.

From ITFTENNIS.COM:
Quote:
Mina and Mladenovic reach round of last eight in ParisThe French tricolore was flying high over Roland Garros on Wednesday as Gianni Mina and Kristina Mladenovic reached the quarter-finals of their respective junior singles events.

Eleventh seed Mina, who looks and plays a lot like Gael Monfils, battled past Swede Patrk Brydolf 76 26 62 to take his place in a last eight that includes players from seven nations.

Mina even had to cope with the net falling down during his match with Brydolf, who hit back well in the second set before being outplayed in the third.

“I don’t know what happened,” Mina laughed. “It was funny, I served without the net, so I thought that was quite amusing.”

Brydolf made a superb start as he raced to a 5-1 lead but he recovered brilliantly to take the set.

“At 5-2, my opponent was relaxing a bit,” he said. “I managed to get the 5-3 game and I got some confidence back, and from then on I had the right attitude.”

Mina is hoping to become the fourth home player to win the title this century, following on from Paul-Henri Mathieu (2000), Richard Gasquet (2002) and Monfils (2004).

Like Monfils, Mina struggles with tendinitis in his knees, but he too is a superb mover around the court and his hard work in the gym helped him wear down Brydolf.

“During the last couple of tournaments I have played, I have made mental progress and I took advantage of that,” he said. “Today I was really motivated so I was able to find the energy from deep down.”

Mina will now play third seed Andrea Collarini of Argentina, who cruised past Yannik Reuter 64 61.

Thanks for opening this thread ! I posted pics of him in Gael's thread a few weeks ago, I'll try to find them again. His forehand looks a lot like Gael's too.

He is now the first french since Gael in 2004 to play the final at junior french open.
He beat the German Schulz 76 62.

Anybody was able to see it ? He lost 6-1 3-6 6-3


His interview from l'équipe.fr:

Quote:
Mina prend «de l'expérience»
A 17 ans, Gianni Mina disputait à Roland-Garros son premier tounoi du Grand Chelem chez les juniors. Finaliste, le Français s'est incliné face à Daniel Berta (6-1, 3-6, 6-3) dimanche. Impressionné par l'événement, le Guadeloupéen a néanmoins engrangé de l'expérience pour la suite.

«Gianni Mina, que représente cette finale à Roland-Garros ?
Cela me permet d'acquérir de l'expérience maintenant, car c'est la première fois que je jouais sur un grand court. Il y avait du monde et on attendait beaucoup de moi. Il fallait que je supporte pas mal de pression. Même si j'ai perdu, je suis quand même content. Beaucoup de gens m'ont encouragé, le public était avec moi.

Avez-vous été impressionné par le stade et le public ?
Oui, un peu quand même. C'était la première fois que je jouais sur un court aussi grand avec autant de personnes... Mais aussi, c'était télévisé, en direct et tout... !

Pensez-vous participer à des tournois ATP ou des challengers prochainement si vous bénéficiez de wild-cards ?
Pour l'instant, ce n'est pas dans mon programme. Je devrais continuer en juniors et faire quelques Futurs. Après, si on me donne des wild-cards, pourquoi ne pas les accepter et jouer de gros tournois. Pour moi, les tournois juniors font partie du chemin. Maintenant, ce qui m'intéresse, c'est le circuit senior. Essayer de bien y jouer et atteindre le top 100, pourquoi pas dans trois ans maximum.

Quel est votre programme ?
Je vais faire les prochains Grands Chelems, Wimbledon et l'US Open (chez les juniors). Cet été, je vais jouer en championnat par équipe et individuel, j'espère. Après, je ne sais pas si on va changer mon programme mais pour l'instant, je vais continuer sur les ITF et participer à 2 ou 3 Futurs.

Vous êtes beaucoup comparé à Gaël Monfils depuis le début du tournoi. Qu'en pensez-vous ?
On m'a posé beaucoup cette question. Cela ne me dérange pas. Gaël à une bonne image et je m'en sers un peu... Cela ne me gêne pas, ça me fait plus rigoler. Je le connais un peu, on a parlé quelque fois, mais je ne sors pas avec lui (sourires).»

Recueilli par P.B, à Roland-Garros

I can translate if you want but if there is only french-speakers on this forum, it's not necessary so... tell me if anyone needs the translation.

I have a question: does anybody know about Gianni's plans for next season? Does he plan to attend tournaments for "adults"?
