Re: Seb's Come Back

He lost the second set after winning 4/1 ?!!

3/3 in the last set...

Re: Seb's Come Back

Argh, what a frustrating loss...
On a positive note, his serve statistics were ok and he had quite a bit of aces. I am just so depressed right now

Re: Seb's Come Back

Me too. He was so close !

And this Kiefer will always beat my favorites ! I'm sure he was all happy and smiling at the end, after disguting the french crowd.

Re: Seb's Come Back

I am impressed. After 2 and a half hours (I'm guessing here, I don't know for sure) and maybe only an hour of break time he teams up with Arnaud and beats two of the elite doubles players!!! Awesome! Everything happens for a reason, maybe now he will have a great doubles tourney. I wonder how his body and more specifically his shoulder will feel in the morning. GO SEB!!!!

Re: Seb's Come Back

Seb will ask a WC for Bercy, there is an interview in a free local newapaper http://www.lyonplus.com/fr/images/ge...media=11412871 page 38 The same interview in the other local newpaper http://www.leprogres.fr/fr/sports/GP...a-prendre.html
He's deceived by this loss of course but no more pain on shoulder

Re: Seb's Come Back

I hope he gets WC, I think he can win some matches if the draw is not too bad. Can someone tell me when they will play doubles? The order of play I find is always a day old and I read a preview of the day on the official website and they just talked about singles matches. Arnaud is playing Becker today. I suppose they will play tomorrow but I am not sure.

It's the last match in Court 1. Actually you can check the atp website to find the latest OOP.

Re: Seb's Come Back

6-4 6-1, they are unstoppable . Other than a period in the first set between 5-1 and 5-4 in which they lost 2 service games they were all over a pretty good doubles team. They won only 43% of the points on their own serve in the first set. 2nd set was much much better as the score shows. Next are Bolleli/Ljubicic.

Re: Seb's Come Back

Poor draw in Bercy = Ljubicic I think it will be too tough.

He could play doubles with Santoro, the answer tomorrow.

Re: Seb's Come Back

Lost first set in the tie-break. Ljubicic doesn't play very well making a tons of UE and Seb did some amazing points but we feel that it's not enough.
