the problem with french players in general is:
- bad influence of the french tennis federation,
- negative behaviour of the french media
When you're great, they love you
when you lose, they burn you
when tsonga reached the AO final, they were like "finally, a new hope"
then just after he lost: "he should lose weight, he's fat, there's no hope, blablabla"
And the federation is here just to suck their momentum and ruin them, it works like the Communist PArty in CHina
It happens all the time with french players: grosjean, gasquet,etc etc
It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again
