Re: Montreal '07

Re: Montreal '07

Yes, il peut jouer !
So, against the russian player...
It will be hard, though he leads 4/0 against him.

Bonne chance !

Re: Montreal '07

The Cincy qualies.
Here’s the part about Seb in today’s article in L’Équipe:
Quote:
Grosjean se donne trois ans…
Tout l’inverse de Sébastien Grosjean. 28e mondial au 1er janvier, le voici no 11 français. Presque un anonyme national qui ne s’est jamais hissé au-delà du troisième tour cette année dans les tournois, éliminé sept fois au premier. Pour stopper l’hémorragie, il a remis son destin dans les mains de l’entraîneur des débuts, Bernard Fritz. Contacté voilà quinze jours, ce dernier coachait le mental des employés de l’entreprise d’un ami. Après s’être mis en disponibilité, le voilà qui doit choyer celui de l’ancien enfant prodigue apparemment usé par les années sur le circuit. Lundi, il dressait un constat sans concession : « On part d’assez loin, il manque un peu de tout. Sébastien a perdu cinq fois son service contre Youzhny, ce n’est pas bon. Il joue un tiers des jeux de manière convaincante, un tiers moyennement, un tiers en étant mauvais. Il a vécu une période où il ne trouvait pas de solutions. Mais il a vu les autres lui passer devant et il a décidé qu’il avait encore envie de s’y remettre à fond. On espère encore trois bonnes années. C’est un bon petit challenge. » Moins affecté qu’à Washington où il quêtait le plaisir perdu, Grosjean semblait porté par cet avenir raccourci mais prometteur. Confessant juste une certaine « lassitude pour les voyages », il ne voulait laisser à personne le soin d’évaluer la réalité de son implication. « La motivation, elle est là, déclarait-il de manière péremptoire. J’aime jouer au tennis, donc je viens pour les qualifs ou même pour un Challenger s’il le faut. J’ai toujours envie de matcher et je repars de zéro avec Bernard, avec un nouvel état d’esprit, la tête dans le guidon. Il est là pour moi, comme au début. » Hier, Sébastien Grosjean repartait aussitôt se ressourcer à Miami avant les qualifications de Cincinnati.
Rough summary: he has never reached the 3rd round this year and has lost 7 times in the 1st round, so he had to change something and came back to Fritz, his first coach, who was working as a „mental coach“ in the company of a friend and is now travelling around with him. Fritz means after Monday’s match that Seb’s game kind of lacks in every department at the moment. He was broken five times against Youzhny, which is not good. He plays one third of the games well, one third average, one third poorly. He says Seb was feeling a bit helpless during a while, but he has seen the others pass him in the rankings and has decided he wants to give everything to improve again. They’re hoping for 3 more good years, that’s the challenge.
Seb admits he’s a bit tired of travelling around, but the „3 more years“ goal seems to motivate him. After the Youzhny match, he didn't look as "down" as in Washington. He says he still likes tennis, that’s why he’s ready to play the qualies or even Challengers if he has to. It's like a start from the scratch with Fritz, with a new frame of mind.
He immediately left for Miami and will spend a few days there before playing the qualies of Cincy.

Re: Montreal '07

It's a calf injury according to l'Équipe. Possibly a tear, they don't know yet.

Re: Montreal '07

Bonjour à tous,

Décidément les choses ne vont pas au mieux pour Séb' !!!
En plus, il dégringole au classement ATP.
Je continue à croire que ces 3 balles de match manquées (40-00*) contre Nalbandian à l'Open d'Australie ont été le tournant de sa saison...

J'espère qu'il nous reviendra "fit" pour l'Us Open !!!

If only it was that... but I think it's much important. His lack of motivation, of ambition are and will always be the most arguments unfortunatly.
