Re: Seb's Come Back

He lost 6/1 6/1

S.Grosjean : "Satisfait dans l'ensemble"
Malgré la défaite contre Gaël Monfils, Sébastien Grosjean restait positif : "C'était difficile au niveau physique. J'avais un peu mal à l'épaule. Je n'ai d'ailleurs pas servi une seule fois à l'entraînement ce matin. Le score ne reflète en tout cas pas le match, car j'ai eu quelques balles de break. Je suis dans l'ensemble satisfait de mon jeu du fond du court, surtout pour une reprise".

His shoulder was a bit painful that's why he doesn't serve this morning but he's happy with his game from baseline and having BP.

Re: Seb's Come Back

In L'Equipe:
Quote:
Grosjean en reconstruction
Battu logiquement en deux sets par Gaël Monfils (6-1, 6-1), l’ancien numéro 1 français doit composer avec son épaule opérée.

« CONTRÔLES RADAR fréquents. » Hier, au service, Sébastien Grosjean a été flashé en excès de lenteur. Le contraste était frappant entre ses premières balles de service à 165 à l’heure et celles de Monfils, chronométrées régulièrement à plus de 200. Il ne faut pas chercher plus loin la raison de la nette défaite de l’ancien champion de Bercy. Et c’est tant mieux si l’on peut facilement faire le diagnostic. Grosjean sait où il va : direction la salle de gym pour s’atteler à la machine adéquate qui lui redonnera, si tout se passe bien, sa solidité d’antan à l’épaule opérée en décembre 2008. « C’est vrai que c’est frustrant d’attaquer un jeu de service et se dire qu’on n’aura que des points qu’on aura intégralement construits », constatait hier l’intéressé. Moindre mal pour un Grosjean qui promène une évidente envie de jouer. « Je sais que “Grogro” est super content d’être de retour sur les courts, confie son pote Arnaud Clément. Bien sûr que le service est un problème. Pour l’instant. Je suis sûr que ça va revenir. Je suis optimiste. » Bernard Fritz, l’entraîneur de Grosjean, est un peu moins rassuré, mais c’est dans son rôle : « C’est quand même un peu inquiétant cette faiblesse au service. C’est dommage car, dans l’échange, il est pas mal du tout. Au service, il y a deux problèmes : l’appréhension et le manque de force. » Et aussi une nouvelle raquette plus courte. Justement pour diminuer le levier et soulager d’autant l’articulation. Mais ça veut dire moins de vitesse. On n’en sort pas. Mais après seulement six matches cette année, l’impression de ses deux sorties à Metz est plutôt encourageante. La victoire de mercredi contre Nicolas Mahut était déjà un signe favorable que l’arrêt contre Monfils ne contredit pas. D’un 180e à un 13e mondial, Grosjean était condamné à un grand écart impossible. Hier, c’est lui qui obtint les premières balles de break. Quatre à 1-1, dont la première aurait dû être convertie. Ce qui n’aurait rien changé à l’affaire, reconnaît Bernard Fritz. L’important est d’avoir vu Grosjean plutôt fringant du fond de court face à un Monfils qui, malgré son blues répété en conférence d’après match, fit étalage d’un niveau de jeu au moins acceptable. Un vrai test pour Grosjean, très en jambes, avec un coup droit certes moins précis qu’au temps de sa splendeur, mais toujours capable, lui, d’affoler le radar.
La case Challengers
Reste qu’il va falloir apprendre la patience et l’humilité, deux vertus dont il pourra deviser avec Richard Gasquet. Sauf que l’ancien a plus de légitimité pour nous proposer un feuilleton à rallonge. En passant sur le billard, le Marseillais savait qu’il allait repartir de loin. « C’était la condition pour retrouver un bon niveau, rappelle-t-il. C’est un challenge difficile mais qui me motive beaucoup. » Il faudra donc, outre ces séances de renforcement musculaire, passer par la case Challengers pour trouver des tournois susceptibles de lui offrir les wild-cards indispensables vu son classement (1147e). Direction Rennes et Orléans pour accumuler les matches et retrouver le rythme qui lui fit un peu défaut hier soir. Puis ce sera Lyon et probablement Bercy. Où il aura tout le loisir de se rappeler qu’en 2001 il y avait regardé les meilleurs joueurs du monde les yeux dans les yeux. « Il me restera alors deux mois pour essayer de me remettre totalement à niveau » , analyse-t-il. Rendez-vous est donc pris pour une année 2010 où il disputera, à trente-deux ans, sa quinzième saison pro. P. COVILLE

Re: Seb's Come Back

He was breaking the "slowness limit" on the speed check yesterday. The contrast with Monfils, who was regularly serving above 200 km/h, was striking. It's frustrating to start a service game knowing that it will be such a struggle to win a point, he says, but at least the diagnosis is very easy to make and he knows what he has to do now - work in the gym.
Arnaud: "I know that 'Grogro' is so happy to be back on the courts. Of course the serve is a problem. For the time being. I'm sure it will come back. I'm optimistic."
Fritz (Seb's coach) is a tad more careful: "It's a bit worrying his serve is so weak, though. It's too bad because he isn't looking bad at all in the rallies. There are two problems with his serve: the fear and the lack of strength." He also plays with a new shorter racket in order to reduce the amplifying "lever effect" for his shoulder. But it means less speed too. It's a vicious circle.
Metz has been encouraging nonetheless. Yesterday's defeat doesn't refute the positives of the win over Mahut. But the gap was too big from a player ranked #180 to a player ranked #13 in the world.
He was the one who got the first BP yesterday. Four, at 1-1 - he should have taken the first one. But it wouldn't have changed anything, Fritz admits. The good thing is that Seb was looking rather "dashing" in the rallies against a Monfils who showed an acceptable level of game. A real test for Seb whose footwork was looking good and whose FH was not as accurate as in the days of his glory, but still good enough to break the speed limit.
Now he will have to be patient and humble. He knew it when he opted for the surgery. "It's a difficult challenge, but it motivates me a lot." Next up: the gym and Challengers (Rennes and Orléans) to get back into the rhythm which let him down a little yesterday. And then Lyon and probably Bercy. "I'll have two months then to bring myself up to standard". The goal is the 2010 season.

Thanks! The stats show that he was not that far off on all the plays except the 1st serve. We'll have to be patient and more importantly he'll have to be patient. This was his 1st real tournament after a long long time. He has 2 weeks to get ready and then play a couple of tournaments where the quality of the field will be similar to Mahut. I'm excited!
GO SEB!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Seb's Come Back

Thanks to everybody for all the updates over the last few weeks.

So great to see Seb back on the tour at last. Great Mahut result, guess we couldn't have expected too much for him. Monfils was pretty tough.
Hope this is the start of a great (new) beginning!

Re: Seb's Come Back

I don't know where you saw that he had withdrawn because on the website of the "Open de Rennes" there is no information about it, quite the contrary ... I hope you're wrong.

Re: Seb's Come Back

I'm sorry but you're right: Tennis: Sébastien Grosjean forfait pour l'Open de Rennes

Annoncé comme une des têtes d'affiche de l'Open de Rennes qui débute samedi, Sébastien Grosjean, le tennisman français vient de déclarer forfait en raison d'un problème physique. David Guez, demi-finaliste à Rennes l 'année dernière, le remplace dans le tableau final.

It's not a good new!!!!
