He complained at the 2005 Aussie Open after he "won" his 1st round match against an injured Seb Grosjean who was very likely going to win (he was up two sets to none...but injured himself...) but refused to retire. He said he was lying or making it worse than it was because he was a "bad looser", because of sour grapes. He put forward injuries he said he had to play through too... And he was very mean in his words. His reaction was stupid. He was supposed to know Grosjean enough to know he couldn't have done what he afirmed he had done. They knew each other almost since childhood. Grosjean even mentioned him in his book (the one he wrote with Arnaud...). He lost in the next round.
He is known to often have this kind of attitude even towards his fellow countrymen. He tends to complain a lot, whinning about this and that, finding bad excuses to his defeats, accusing very easily other players of very bad things etc...At one time, we heard of this kind of things so often from him it was unbelievable. He made a fool of himself. It was like "That's again this Losnard whinning! What it it today? The net was too high?..."
I didn't heard these kind of stories about him recently. Maybe he has changed. I hope so.
That's nothing. I've never really disliked someone in my life and it's not someone like him with the little stupidities he has done that will make me start doing this. Anyway, i don't like him either. Everyone can be an asshole during a period of one's life. I had my time. I just hope it's over now for him and he understood he had a lot of defaults, put himself in question, wanted to change and did it.
