Davis cup final

A week-end in Lille

Lille, France - 23/11/2014

If you are a tennis fan, it was a week-end you cannot miss. The kind of a week-end that happen every decade. For Switzerland, it didn’t happen since 1992, 22 years ago. This 21 November in Lille takes place the Davis Cup Final, in the Pierre Mauroy Stadium, between France and Switzerland. An amazing show, for amazing tennis.

First step, get the tickets.

I wanted first to go to the final with my friends. But the billetery was just « hell » himself. 100 000 peoples, trying to get connect together, for only 8 000 availables per days. At 10AM, on friday morning, one month before the event I tried everything i could. I was stuck in front of my computer, shouting, angry against the slowness of the connexion. 2 hours later, « BINGO ». One ticket for each days. My friends didn’t had the same luck as mine. I’ll have to go alone. Disappointment. Train tickets, and hotel reservation were already done. Let’s do this final.

Undecided friday

The atmosphere in Lille was amazing. Not cold, and Christmas market in the city, it was really great. The downtown area was always full of people and it was easy to find a Swiss or a french supporter to talk about the cup. On the first day, i went directly to the Stadium to see Stan Wawrinka beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (6/1 - 3/6 - 6/3 - 6/2) for the 1/0 but fortunately for France, Gaël Monfils defeated Roger Federer (6/1 - 6/4 - 6/4) for the tie.

Saturday’s double to Swiss

After a nice walk into Lille come the decisive double match between Federer/Wawrinka for Swiss and Gasquet/Benneteau for France. But the Swiss team was simply the best. A victory 6/3 - 7/5 - 6/4 let Swiss take the lead 2/1.

From french nightmare to Federer dream

On the Sunday, with an unchained crowd supporting France, the best player of all time, Roger Federer played the last match of this final against Richard Gasquet, who substitute Jo-Wilfried Tsonga injured. Despite the crowd and the hostile atmosphere, Federer played an amazing game, and finally won the only big title he missed in his amazing collection of trophies. In front of the 27 482 people who takes place in the stadium, the world record for a tennis match, he crumbled on the red clay on the match point, and offer to Switzerland the first Davis Cup of his history.

The defeat is hard, but this week-end was amazing. It was my first Davis Cup match ever, and it’s completely different than other tournament like Bercy or French Open. The stadium which is usually a football stadium was also impressive, and the biggest tennis stadium ever. I also enjoy spending time on Lille’s streets, a really beautiful city that I recommend you. It was also great to speak to nice tennis fans, and specially with Swiss people who were speaking french like me ! I hope to live an another one soon. For the 2015 edition, first round takes place on march. France will go to Germany, and Switzerland to Belgium.

Roland Garros Qualies

A day in Roland Garros qualifications

Paris, France - 27/05/2014

One day in Paris into the qualifications. As i do every time since now since 2008, I went Thursday in Paris, Porte d'Auteuil to see some matches of the qualifications of the French Open. As you may see, i'm a huge tennis fan, and i will not miss that for nothing in the world.

128 players on the draw, 16 on the main

The qualification is such a different event from the main draw. On the Roland Garros stadium, it start the tuesday before the main tournament, for 4 days of competition. The boys and the girls you see on the field are not the stars you use to watch on TV. You can encourage them, and talk with them at the end of a match. The atmosphere in the stadium is so different too. You can move, see the stars practicing in the other court, and you are sure that your neighbor has the same passion as you.

Jonathan, Laurent & Eric

I went to the stadium on Friday, to see a guy i follow since a long time on the tour. Jonathan Eysseric, 22 years old, french player, was on the court 6 on the last round of the qualies against Peter Polansky of Canada. Unfortunately, he gives all but lose in 2 sets (7/6 - 6/1) and fail the access to the main draw.

Hopefully a second french guy, Laurent Lokoli won his match on court 7. All his family was here, and the crowd unchained. Hapiness everywhere, Lokoli, who get an invitation from the french federation (his rank was not high enough to let him participate) will play today his first Grand Slam match in the main draw. A great award for this player, that i'm sure you will see soon on TV.

The last match of my day, was the last on the court 7. The french Eric Prodon, who won 13/11 on the final set the day before was playing his last French Open at 33yo. Too tired and wounded, he lost 6/0 - 6/1 in less than an hour against the Austrian Haider-Maurer. Such a pain for me to see Eric's adventure in Paris finish like this. But sport, and specially tennis is made of it ...

If you like tennis, come to qualies !

If you like tennis, or if when Roland Garros happen, you cannot do anything than turn on your TV, and watch the game even if you don't understand anything, come to the qualies. You will be sure to have a good time.
