News – FR – The mood of the sports editorial staff Harder, better, faster, stronger


France’s best doubles pair announced their split on Monday We reassure you right away: it is not Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut in question, but indeed “Daft Punk”, the flagship duo of the French electro scene, composed of Thomas Bangalter and Guy- Homem-Christo Manual How does this bad news concern sport, and more specifically French tennis?

After the Australian Open, you have to face the facts: France is much more famous in the world for its musicians than for its tennis players, who are once again absent from the second week of singles competition in Melbourne

The French n ° 1 and 2, Gaël Monfils and Benoît Paire, nonetheless filled themselves with two weeks of isolation in Melbourne only to be left unceremoniously in the first round of the first Grand Slam tournament of the year We grant you: it would be unfair and not very fair to jeer at Gaël Monfils, in tears after his poor performance two weeks ago and who announced this weekend his break with the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, 5th at the WTA

On the other hand, our Benoît, him, still made a Pair: the Avignon, renowned for his cocktail parties online since the first confinement, marked the 2021 edition of the Australian Open by making as many double faults that Novak Djokovic But while the Serbian, winner of his 18th Grand Slam tournament, committed 23 in seven matches, Pair, he united them in a single game, lost against the 79th world, Belarusian Egor Gerasimov

“It’s fine, their tournament, but I think it’s m …”, reacted the 29th world “But my level of play was good, I think my attitude was goodWe can’t wait to see what his positive attitude will give to Cordoba, the Argentinian tournament that Paire is playing this week. We are confident: we are counting on the craziest of our tennis players to pay Daft Punk the tribute they deserve by playing “harder, better, faster, stronger” (*) On the court, eh, because the Gato Negro, the most famous nightclub in the city, is closed due to Covid

(*) Literally: “harder, better, faster, stronger”, the name of one of the great hits of Daft Punk on the album Discovery, in 2001

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger, Daft Punk
