Nukkige Malisse niet in Daviscup 31-08-2004

De Belgische Daviscup-ploeg zal het tegen KroatiŽ moeten doen zonder Xavier Malisse. Ook in de toekomst wil Malisse niet meer spelen vor BelgiŽ.


Xavier Malisse zit danig in de put na zijn nederlaag op de US Open. De Kortrijkzaan denkt aan stoppen met de Daviscup. Aan onze collega's van Sporza spuwde hij zijn gal: "Ik deed steeds mijn best, maar kreeg nooit respect terug. Spelen in de Daviscup was altijd leuk. Maar als je samen hard werkt en traint en er dan geen respect voor terugkrijgt..."

"Het heeft niets te maken met coach Steven Martens, maar wel met de mensen erachter. Ik heb geen zin meer om voor hen te spelen."

Volgens de Belgische Tennisbond is het afzeggen van Malisse te wijten aan een financieel geschil. "Xavier Malisse heeft zijn selectie niet aanvaard omdat hij niet akkoord gaat met de financiŽle voorwaarden, nochtans vastgelegd bij aanvang van het seizoen en goedgekeurd door zijn management."

Tegen KroatiŽ zal BelgiŽ spelen met Olivier Rochus (ATP-100), Kristof Vliegen (ATP-103), Gilles Elseneer (ATP-108) en Dick Norman (ATP-155).

Good luck belgian boys!!!

eSpeCiAlLy:

Olivier Rochus


Also good luck to ~Jarkko Nieminen~Juan Carlos Ferrero~Filippo Volandri~


"Rochus' career serves as tennis proof that size does matter ó the size of a player's heart ó and the smallest man on the ATP Tour continues to come up big in that area."

Re: Davis Cup in September: Belgium against Croatia

Really sad decision from Xavier

But I think that he'll still change his mind about his future in the Daviscup. I don't believe he'll never play Daviscup again... At least I hope he'll change his mind!

Come on, Xavier! Your fans still love you and I'm sure lots of people want to see you play Daviscup again. The team won't be the same without you...

Re: Davis Cup in September: Belgium against Croatia

Because he feels they don't get the respect they deserve from the "bosses" of the Belgian tennis federation. Not their coach, but just the people above him of the organisation.
Some examples he gave :
- Xavier won a lot of his Daviscup matches and that was taken for granted, and if he has a loss those people always start critizising him and call him difficult, lazy,....
- during Daviscup in Doornik against Zimbabwe the players got really bad rooms and the shower was only 1.80m high, while Xavier is 1.86m

I think he's maybe overreacting a little bit. But it's true he always gets loads of criticism when he loses. Also in the Belgian press : they're always much harder on Xavier than on the other men I think.


I really hope his friendship with Olivier and the rest of the team will make him change his mind for the next Daviscup encounter!

It wasn't that bad in Doornik, off course didn't went into the showers What I did saw was some very irritating behaviour from Xavier during training and I missed the worst parts of it So don't think it's only 'the others' their fault
