I agree with Puschkin

Hey, do you know if Universal Studio Singapore will be opened for public on the 18th? Info I find so far is confusing

Re: Indian Wells 2010: Welcome Back, Paulo!

Paulo said in l'equipe that he still feels the pain, but he played through it in the first match

Re: Indian Wells 2010: Welcome Back, Paulo!

He lost to Lopez in three sets. He had an early chance to break in the second, but couldn't take it.

I hope he re-evaluates his decision. Maybe he should skip Miami and continue with a light fitness training that doesn't put his injury to the test

From what I know, 18th is correct. Why? You're coming to Singapore?

Re: Indian Wells 2010: Welcome Back, Paulo!

In L'Equipe today:
Quote:
« Je suis allé me voir sur YouTube »
Paul-Henri Mathieu ne savait plus comment il jouait quand il était bon. Alors, il s’est rafraîchi la mémoire.

« Y AVAIT LA PLACE pour battre Feliciano Lopez ici (défaite 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 dimanche). C’est dommage et décevant, mais il ne faut pas oublier d’où je reviens. Je gagne du terrain contre la douleur chaque jour. D’abord le genou, après la pubalgie, ça faisait quatre mois que je n’avais pas osé des courses et des freinages secs. Contre Lopez, trois ou quatre fois, j’y suis allé à fond. Or, chez moi, le physique est essentiel. C’est la base de mon jeu. Aujourd’hui, je suis même plus fort qu’avant là-dessus. Je suis devenu souple à force de faire des étirements. Pendant que tout le monde était à l’Open d’Australie, moi, je passais mes matinées à l’hôpital de Clamart. Moralement, c’était pas terrible à vivre. J’ai perdu du temps à me soigner mais, au moins, j’ai pu réfléchir à mon jeu. Avec Olivier (Malcor, son coach depuis quatre mois), on a énormément discuté de ça. Mais il y a mieux : je sais de nouveau comment je jouais quand j’étais bon (12e mondial en avril 2008, il est aujourd’hui 41e). C’est marrant comme on peut douter de soi. Il y a quatre ou cinq jours, je suis allé me voir sur YouTube. J’ai revu des bouts de mes victoires contre Cañas à Montréal (2007) et Naso àMunich (2008). C’est bizarre, mais je me souviens vachement mieux des défaites. Bref, j’ai pu voir qu’à l’époque je ne faisais jamais de faute en revers. C’est dingue comment ça m’a frappé. C’est dingue d’avoir pu oublier ça. C’était quand même moi qui jouais et ce n’est pas si vieux. Sur YouTube, j’ai vu que je pouvais tenir n’importe qui en diagonale de revers. Voilà, j’avais besoin de revoir ces images. Ce n’est pas trop tard, je n’ai que vingt-huit ans. C’est une deuxième carrière qui commence. » – Frédéric Bernès

Re: Indian Wells 2010: Welcome Back, Paulo!

He says that Lalo was beatable, it's too bad and disappointing he lost, but he has to remember where he's coming from. He gains ground against the pain with every passing day. With the knee issue and then the groin problem, it's been 4 months he hadn't dared to run and stop normally. He did it 3-4 times against Lopez.
The physical part is essential for his game. And today he's stronger in that regard. He has done so much stretching that he's less stiff. While everybody was down under, he was spending his mornings in the hospital of Clamart. Not great for his morale, but at least he had time to think about his game. They talked a lot about it with Malcor, his new coach.
But the most important thing is that he now knows again how he used to play when he played well. It's funny how a player can doubt himself. "4-5 days ago, I watched videos of me on YouTube. I watched bits of my wins over Cañas in Montreal (2007) and Naso in Munich (2008). It's weird, but I remember the defeats much better. Anyhow, I saw that I was hardly missing with my BH back then. I was really struck by that. It's crazy I didn't remember it. I'm that player and it's not that old! I saw on Youtube that I'm able to hold against anybody in a cross BH rallye. I needed to see that again. It's not too late, I'm only 28 years old. A 2nd career is starting."
