mercedes benz cup

Well, finally Seb will play again - later today. Let's hope this tournament will be a good preparation for the US Open. His draw seems quite OK, to put it mildly And he's playing doubles as well.

Re: mercedes benz cup

Well played ! Loss at first round against Mello (?) 1/6 6/2 6/3 !
He even doesn't have the excuse of DC tiredness...

Re: mercedes benz cup

L'Equipe

Arrivé vendredi de Marseille, où il a passé trois semaines, Sébastien Grosjean a été cueilli d'entrée lundi à Los Angeles par le numéro 1 brésilien Ricardo Mello. Après un premier convainquant où il a dicté sa loi, le Français s'est effondré physiquement.
"En fait, j'ai été malade à Marseille. J'ai eu une angine et une gastro, qui m'ont empêché de me préparer comme je le voulais. Je me suis entrainé physiquement mais je n'ai pas vraiment pu jouer. Aujourd'hui, avec la chaleur, au bout d'un set j'avais du mal à bouger j'étais mort."

=> Seb arrived on friday in Los Angeles, from Marseille where he stayed 3 weeks. He was sick here, he had a sore throat and a gastro so he just trained physically, he didn't play. That explains he was "died" in the second set against Mello.

Now:double with Saulnier,then Washington, then Montreal.

Re: mercedes benz cup

Seb looked pretty good in doubles today, so at least he is getting some matches in, even if it's doubles.

If anyone's interested, I've posted my pics from the tourney here http://www.menstennisforums.com/phot...rtby/f/way/asc and there are some of Seb. I also have more from Tuesday and Wednesday that I have yet to post

Re: mercedes benz cup

A lovely pic of Debstah. Seb leaving his practice with his daughter Lola

Her report:
I arrived at the tennis center a little after 11am. Matches started at 12 so I went over to the practice court where Grosjean and Saulnier were having fun. They were practicing placement with shots and serves by putting water bottles in spots on the court and trying to hit them. They were having a great time with it and I actually thought it was a pretty decent way to practice. There was a little girl with them, I don't know who she was - at first I thought Seb's daughter but she seemed older than his kids would be. Anyway, she was a beautiful little girl and was very good about standing back when Seb signed autographs. Seb seems like a real nice laid-back guy. Also, after they finished the practice, he did a little sit-down with the Tennis Channel. Not sure what it was about, though.

Seb seems happy and smiling on these ones that's good to see.
