Sollicité il y a quelques heures à peine par la Fédération Française de Tennis pour que les quarts de finale de la Coupe Davis 2012 entre la France et les
USA puissent être joués sur le Court Central du Monte-Carlo Country Club, le Comité de Direction, après une étude succincte de faisabilité, a donné son accord à la FFT, malgré la proximité du
tournoi « Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters » qui ouvrira ses portes six jours seulement après l’issue de cette prestigieuse et légendaire compétition internationale.
La Direction du Monte-Carlo Country Club
We are glad to publish a letter from our friend Bruno:
Dear tennis friends,
it is with great excitement and a large dose of glee that I am proud to announce (or confirm) that the next Davis Cup tie opposing France and the US
(two heavy-weights in the history of the Davis Cup!) will take place at "my club", the Monte-Carlo Country Club!
This confrontation will take place just one week prior to the commencement of the Rolex 1000 Masters ATP tournament (the one that has been taking place here
every year since 1897!) thus benefiting from the 10,000-seat installation on "Court Central", preparations being sped up as I am typing this message...
Both the US and France have started the year well respectively thrashing a Federer-led
Switzerland 0-5 on their home turf(!) and winning in Vancouver, BC 1-4.
Fish and Isner have led the US onslaught against Federer and Wawrinka in Fribourg with Mardy Fish and Mike Bryan teaming up to bring the tie-clenching third point in the
doubles match against the two Swiss!
Though they were not able to line-up an injured GaëlMonfils, the experienced Jo-WilfriedTsonga and JulienBenneteau overcame the Canadian team on the last day.
Even though my heart will be torn by the confrontation between a country in whose educational system I have grown up and the other where I have
left my heart (in San Francisco!) I am certain of one thing:
my heart will be beating as fast as that of the players on court! Regardless of the outcome there will be but one big winner on the Sunday
night: the game of tennis and the pleasure will all be mine...
