Lyon...

A trhread special Lyon, because I don't like to go to the section "open de lyon".

As every year in Lyon, Seb and Arnaud play in double together...
It's "their" tournament !

Re: Lyon...

they r so sweet!!

why u dont like to go to Lyon Forum?! last year we used to have a "french musketeers thread" in each tournament forum and it brought lots of luck.now we've stopped it...maybe that's why french players played shitty this year?

ATP: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Michael Llodra, Roger Federer, Mardy Fish

HE RETIRED !!!!

I didn't understand...I was watching the match, Seb didn't seem to be bad, and at the end of the second set, -that he lost- he asked to the kiné to come on the court, they chated, then he stoped !
He is not injured, but I think (as the commentators at tv) he is just very tired after his tournament and his travel in Japan, so he probably prefered not taking risks to injure himself , when he plays forcing, he injures himself, so it's just a precaution I guess (I hope !), Seb is very attentive with his body.

It means he withdraws in double with Arnaud. Sniff !

After his loss:

"Je me suis fait une petite entorse à la cheville gauche la semaine dernière à Tokyo en 8e de finale face à Van Scheppingen", a déclaré le numéro un français, tête de série n°2.


"Ensuite, j'ai joué mes matches suivants avec un strapping. Après quelques soins lundi à Paris, j'avais envie d'essayer ici à Lyon même si c'était mon premier tournoi indoor. Dès qu'il y avait un changement de direction, j'avais ma cheville qui se bloquait sur cette surface qui est assez abrasive.


"Ca ne servait à rien de forcer. C'est la même cheville où je me suis cassé deux ligaments il y a deux ans, donc je n'ai pas envie de jouer avec le feu. J'ai suffisamment accumulé de petits pépins."


Cet abandon survient au mauvais moment pour le Français, engagé dans la course à la Masters Cup, qui regroupe les huit meilleurs joueurs. Grosjean est actuellement 11e à l'ATP Champions Race.


"J'ignore si je pourrais participer au Masters Series de Madrid, a enchaîné Grosjean. Sinon, j'irai défendre mon titre à Saint-Petersbourg, mais j'espère surtout ne pas rater Bercy." ( I can't imagine not to see you in Bercy !!)

=) He doesn't know if he will play in Madrid, he will do medical exams in Paris...he played because it was in Lyon, but if if had be in abroad, he would had not played.
