bad news again...

Séb is forfaited for davis cup, he's sick...
Well, no comment...

Sébastien, tu es actuellement en Suisse pour le 2e tour de la Coupe Davis qui débute vendredi. Comment se déroule la préparation ?

(Rires) En fait, il n’y aura pas vraiment de préparation. Je déclare forfait, je souffre d’une infection virale depuis Key Biscayne. J’ai encore dix jours de repos avant de refaire des examens pour savoir si tout va bien. Je ne peux donc pas être aux côtés de mes coéquipiers sur le court. On me verra dans les tribunes comme supporteur.

De quoi souffres-tu ?

J’ai sûrement chopé cette infection virale à Key Biscayne. Je me sentais fatigué, je manquais de jus là-bas. Quand je suis arrivé à Paris samedi, je n’étais toujours pas bien. Mais je ne savais pas ce que j’avais, je ne comprenais pas pourquoi j’étais claqué. Comme à chaque rencontre de Coupe Davis, j’ai effectué un petit check-up en arrivant. C’est là que le docteur m’a dit qu’il était préférable que je prenne dix jours de repos parce que je souffrais d’une infection virale. Je dois récupèrer avant de reprendre l’entraînement.

C’est en tout cas un gros coup dur pour l’équipe de France…

C’est dur pour l’équipe mais je crois que c’est aussi très dur pour moi. Je ne peux pas prendre ma revanche sur la rencontre de l’année dernière. C’est décevant mais le docteur préfère que je prenne du repos. J’aurais très bien pu jouer mais tout de suite après, il aurait fallu que je fasse trois semaines de break. Si je joue, je sais très bien que je prends un gros risque. Ce n’est pas bon pour moi et surtout pour l’équipe.

Ta saison avait bien commencé avec un quart de finale à l’Open d’Australie mais depuis, tu ne cesses d’enchaîner les problèmes physiques.

C’est vrai que c’est un peu dommage, la chance n’est pas avec moi. J’espère vraiment que les dix jours de repos vont me faire du bien et que je vais pouvoir reprendre l’entraînement normalement afin de préparer la saison sur terre battue.

Avec ton forfait, Nicolas Escudé sera-t-il ton remplaçant en simple ?

En toute logique, oui. Nico devrait jouer le simple avec Arnaud Clément. On sera fixé dans les jours qui viennent.

Et pour le double ?

Je ne sais pas du tout. Comme nous avons pris notre décision il y a très peu de temps, nous n’avons pas encore réfléchi à cela. Il y a Micka (Llodra) mais pour le deuxième joueur, je ne sais pas. Une chose est sûre, tous les joueurs peuvent jouer dans tous les secteurs.

Penses-tu que la France puisse franchir l’obstacle Suisse ?

Nous avons une très bonne carte à jouer. Nous ne sommes pas les favoris avec la présence de Roger Federer mais je sais que nous avons le potentiel pour battre cette équipe de Suisse. On l’a déjà fait en 2001 donc je pense qu’on peut le refaire sans problème.

Quand penses-tu effectuer ton retour à la compétition ?

Je vais déjà refaire des examens jeudi prochain. Si le « doc » me donne son feu vert, je reprends doucement avec l’espoir d’être présent à Monte-Carlo. On verra bien.

Re: bad news again...

what ever...
found an english article:

Grosjean withdraws from French Davis Cup team

April 6, 2004

LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- French No. 1 Sebastien Grosjean won't play in
this weekend's Davis Cup quarterfinal against Switzerland.

Grosjean has a virus and must take a 10-day break, Swiss Davis Cup spokesman
Marcel Hauck said Tuesday. The French Tennis Federation confirmed the
information.

The withdrawal of Grosjean means the singles matches most likely will fall
to Arnaud Clement and Nicolas Escude. The squad also includes doubles
specialist Michael Llodra and Julien Benneteau.

Playing without Grosjean will make things more difficult for France, which
faces world No. 1 Roger Federer. Grosjean, who led France to the final in
2002, has a 2-1 record against Federer.

Re: bad news again...

Sebastien, you at in Switzerland at the moment preparing for the second round of DC. How's preparation going?
(laughs- he was actually LAUGHING!) Well actually, there really isn't any preparation going at all. I had to forfeit because i'm suffering from a viral infection since i left Key Biscayne. I have 10 days before i'll go get some tests done to know how i'm going. But yeah I won't be able to play Davis Cup, i'll be on the sidelines as a supporter.


What is it that you are suffering from, exactly?
I got a viral infection from Key Biscayne. I felt really tired, i just ran out of energy over there. When i arrived in Paris on saturday, i still wasnt feeling too good. But i didn't know exactly what i had, i didnt really understand why i was feeling so blocked up. Like before any DC tie, i had a check up when i arrived. It was then when the doctor told me i should take 10 days off for rest because i'm sick. I have to recover before starting up training again.


It's a huge blow for the French team...
It's hard for the team but it's also hard for myself too. I can't take my revenge on the Swiss team now, after what happened last year. It's really disapointing but the dr said i have to rest. I would have been able to play but i would have had to take 3 weeks off straight after. If i play, i know that there's too big a risk. It's not good for me, and above all not good for the team.

Your year started with a quarter final appearance at the Aus Open but since then, you have been plagued by injury!
It's really a shame, i haven't had much luck. I really hope that the ten days of rest will do me some good and that i'll be able to return back to normal training to prepare for the clay court season.

Since you have withdrawn, will Nicolas take your spot in singles?
The logical answer would be yes. Nico should play singles with Arnaud Clément. We'll see who it'll be soon.

And for the doubles?
I have no idea. Since i just withdrew, we havent had much time to think about this yet. Theres MIka but for the second player, i dont know. One thing's for sure though, all the players will be considered as an option.

Do you think that the French can overcome the 'Swiss obstacle'?
We have a good chance. We arent favourites with the presence of Roger Federer but i know that we have the potential to beat the Swiss team, yes. We did it in 2001 so i think we can do it, no problems.

What do you think about your comeback to competition?
I'll have tests done next Thursday. If the 'doc' gives me the green light, then i'll be able to go back to training and hope i can play monte carlo. We'll see.

Re: bad news again...

Maybe it'll all part of his evil master plan lol. nah i dunno maybe its not all bad news then, coz yeah he'll have more time to get ready for the next TMS tourney. Hope he plays well there tho coz i dont want him slipping from the top 10 again!
