Re: << DAVIS CUP TIME..KOM IGEN SWEDES >>

Sweden Back on Track
The France v Sweden first round tie ends day one with one win apiece. Thomas Johansson drew the visitors level with a surprisingly easy win over Sebastien Grosjean, prevailing 64 64 76(1) to ensure that Sweden are still very much in the tie following Joachim Johansson's earlier loss to Paul-Henri Mathieu.

In the first set, Thomas Johansson was a lot quicker to get into the game mentally. His domination was clear, as the Swede was never troubled on his serve. Indeed Grosjean never made it to deuce on Johansson’s serve.

On the other hand the French No.1 had to fight off break opportunities in three out of five service games. So many opportunities could not go unrewarded, and Johansson broke Grosjean in the fifth game. This break was sufficient for the Swede to win the first set 6-4 in 47 minutes.

The beginning of the second set witnessed Grosjean’s first breakpoint after 56 minutes of play. The Frenchman seemed to have come out in the second set with a different attitude and despite three missed breakpoints, there was no doubt that a metamorphosis took place in between sets.

Grosjean was now able not only to defend but also dictate play, winning his service games in a much more easily. Unfortunately, for him, the metamorphosis did not last long as the Swede broke again to lead 3-2 and 4-3.

It was now time for “Gros” to try and create something on Johansson’s serve if he wanted to stay in the second set. However the Frenchman seemed to be somewhat out of gas after only a set and a half, while “T.J.”, kept on playing his game making his opponent cover every inch of the court.

Grosjean held serve to love at 3-5 thanks to some solid serves. Leading 5-4, 40-0, Johansson missed three set pointss, and despite a beautifully touched backhand lob by Grosjean at deuce, the Swede stayed in the game and took the second set 6-4 in 49 minutes.

With a two set lead, it was unclear how “Seb” was going to be able to come back. Solid serves would be a necessity, and with two aces in the third game Grosjean was able to hold serve, but having lost his serve in the opening game, was already a break behind.

The crowd decided to try and boost Grosjean, and it seemed to help. Grosjean managed to break back and take the next two games to lead 4-2. At 4-2 with the help of an electric crowd, Grosjean’s confidence was boosted and he served out to love to move 5-2 ahead.

Thomas Johansson held on to his serve and broke back after a disappointing service game for the Frenchman at 5-3. This break put a splinter in his confidence and a band-aid on Johansson’s,who seized a window of opportunity to come back to 5-5.

It was now do or die for Grosjean, and with all the pressure on his shoulders, the Frenchman was able to hold serve and move ahead 6-5. Johansson held his to take the set into a tiebreaker. The tiebreak started well for Sweden as Johansson was quickly 4-1 up. Seemingly unstoppable, he took the sixth point with a commanding volley, and the next after an unforced error from the tired Frenchman. The Swede now had 5 match points to seal it but one was enough.

At the moment, Saturday's doubles action will feature Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra against Simon Aspelin and doubles veteran Jonas Bjorkman.
