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
Seems that they expect too much from players and thus put a lot of pressure on them.
