Re: Cincinnati Draw

Robin Söderling was very impressive last year, but I haven't heard that much about him this year. I hope that's a good sign for our Grosjean! He really needs to get valuable points on this one!

BEST OF LUCK GROSJEAN

Re: Cincinnati Draw

I liked Robin Soderling last year, but since then he often lost in first or second rounds - that is, until he met Seb What's wrong with him? I was hoping he would do really well during the Olympics, but now I won't get my hopes up too high

Re: Cincinnati Draw

He lost to Söderling??? I know this may well be old news for you, but I've been a bit sloppy lately with checking up on the tennis news around the world - and frankly, reading the cold hard facts here on the forum made me feel pretty disappointed. His confidence seems to be slipping away at this crucial point where he's on the verge of going into the Olympics, and I'm beginning to feel rather scared that he may not do that well at all, at a competition that I have always regarded as pretty important. I mean, it's the Olympics, for crying out loud!!!

yeah, we often burst in to tears when the national flag is being raised with the national anthem as the background music.

Re: Cincinnati Draw

I know I'm probably a bit fickle, but as Danish TV doesn't show any tennis at the moment and I don't have cable anymore - and the sad, but plain fact that Grosjean doesn't play well right now - then I can feel my interest in both the sport and Grosjean going down to zero. I hope this will all change as soon as the Olympics open, and the tennis tournament starts. Do they play national teams or individual? Or both? I don't remember how they did it during the last Olympics (I didn't really watch anything from Sydney apart from football) and I don't think I have watched Olympic tennis since the late 80's!!! LOL I mean, the last Olympic winner I remember is one Miroslav Mecirs (or whatever he was called - I was quite a fan)...

Re: Cincinnati Draw

Hi girls !!
I"m back from holiday and I have to admit that I don't know what happened these last weeks in tennis...I only know (cos I read l'equipe a few times) that Seb didn't play well during the US tour...he admited he's not focused on the american tournaments because he can't stop thinking to the OG, it's his obsession for some weeks.
But I don't know his results in Indianapolis, Cinci, Toronto...well, nevermind, The OG are very soon now, I'm excited and Hope a (2) medals for him !

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".
