“Oh, you know, I listen to everything …” Heard, repeated and hammered, this answer is often an escape when the question of musical tastes is asked. Sometimes it’s the truth. But most of the time, it is to hide a secret garden.
American players prepare the Master’U BNP Paribas by intensive training in efforts … and music. To rally France, Russian and Chinese students, too, listen to their playlists on the plane. Scattered to the four corners of the country, the tricolor join the North of France by train. Their headphones are then precious to kill time. The Belgians came to Marcq-en-Barœul by bus. The opportunity for them to sing their favorite hits at the top of their voices.
Once on the spot, the British surprise by their pre-game concentration. The headphones on the ears, they prepare each match as if it was the last. The Irish, beaming with good humor, are often surprised to whistle their favorite melodies. And the Germans are the first to celebrate their victory by dancing.
Master’U BNP Paribas players train, hover, travel, communicate, prepare, concentrate, celebrate and vibrate to the rhythm of the sounds. In short … They live in music. And they really listen to everything.
