I tried to translate the article of l'equipe of today,please excuse the translation...
That's monday that the rumor has started to leak out in tennis's world. The reason ? "personal problems". Hard to find confirmation, S.Grosjean, who's in Florida, decided to change his phone number, and, since a while, is very selective at phone.
Yesterday morning, Thierry Tulasne confirmed: "I can't say anything. Duty to preserve secrecy. That's frustating not to explain but it's like that".
His answer was a semi confession.
In the after noon, J.C Massias (DTN), confirmed too: "I had Sebastien at phone, he said me he decided to stop his season cos of an injury, ans so he won't be able to play the DC. I don't know more".
In the same time, a press release of AFP annonced the compostition of the team, adding: "Grosjean is perturbed by personal problems and depressed bu his bad results".
After, Sebastien G. publicated himself a press release, without allusion to his private life.
For the moment, it seems that he might give more info today about his situation.
Why to be simple when it's possible to be difficult ? What's the gravity of his injury ? Is his withdraw linked to personal problems ? Which future for the player who had annonced, some times ago, that he wanted to be number 1 ?
So many questions that deserve answers.
To read his atp ranking, it's not depressing though. Number 10, he was still in the running for a quelification in the masters. [...]
Guy Forget'c recation in interview:
How did you know for sebastien's injury ?
3 days ago. He called me and said he was hurted after playing football with friends. That's a pîty...of course I think we are penalized bu that. I'm quite shattered, even if I can count on another players. But I thought Seb would be there, we needed of him. But it's like that, he can't be there. Can can I say ? He's in the USA...
It seems he stoped his season after this "injury" ? Whzt do you think about that ?
I can't comment that, there are lots things I don't tknow. It's not to me to speak a about. Seb says me "I can't play, I'm injured". Well, so, ok...
My feeling: it is very weird all these secrets. I don't like that at all.
I wonder what he thinks, what he does, what are his problems ?
But I have the impression that Guy is very disapointed. He probably knows more tha he wants to say, and he probably knows it's not cos of an injury.
I know he counts a lot on his best player, on the team spirit etc... just hope this situation won't turn in a "santoro polemic bis".
