Average draw, but I don't expect Seb to do well regardless.

All we can wish is that he wins his first match and doesn't retire...

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Re: Wimbledon 2008

Starace isn't a grass specialist at all I think. But it doesn't mean that much, the most important is seb's form... and he's not good.
I don't expect anything.
A win would be fantastic...

Re: Wimbledon 2008

Ohhh good luck Seb!

I heard that Starace was involved in some tennis betting scandals. But... maybe just scandals...

Anyway, good luck Seb! I hope he would be able to play his best tennis here and NO MORE INJURY AGAIN!

YOU KNOW...


C'mon GROSJEAN
Allez! Move on!

Re: Wimbledon 2008

6:2, 7:5, 6:1 Seems it was relatively easy... Now I'm really looking forward to the next match!

Re: Wimbledon 2008

Allez sexy Seb!

It was a winnable match for Sebastien, but I was a bit worried about how the injury(ies) would hold up. Gasquet or Fish up next, one would expect Seb to lose to either but he can always surprise us.
