Re: News about Di pasquale???

It is official. I am so sad!

Have just sent an e-mail to the French Tennis Federation and they have responded only a few minutes later.

Il a déclaré forfait hier car il est blessé. Il devait jouer les
qualifications.

Bonne soirée


Merde! Get well soon, Arnaud!

Re: News about Di pasquale???

L'equipe:

Di Pasquale renonce


VICTIME DE BLESSURES À RÉPÉTITION, le Français ne disputera pas Roland-Garros. Le dernier match d’Arnaud Di Pasquale avait pourtant été une victoire. Il y a un mois, le Français avait éliminé au premier tour du challenger d’Olbia (Sardaigne) le Tchèque Dlouhy. Mais, « sur un passing de revers tiré à l’arraché, j’ai senti une énorme décharge dans le dos », raconte-t-il aujourd’hui. « J’étais tétanisé par la douleur. J’ai gagné, mais c’était un hold-up. Le lendemain matin, rebelote : je me suis bloqué à nouveau le dos. J’ai dû déclarer forfait le lendemain. »

Depuis la hernie discale qui le contraignit à une opération en août 2003, la vie de l’ancien champion du monde juniors (1997) est jalonnée de pépins physiques, comme si son corps lui intimait l’ordre que son esprit se refuse encore à évoquer : stop ! « En Australie, c’était une contracture à une cuisse, en février la grippe, à Olbia le dos, énumère-t-il. Toutes les trois semaines, j’ai mal quelque part, ce qui chamboule tous mes plans. Mais j’ai vraiment touché le fond aux qualifs de Casablanca, où j’ai perdu contre Chiudinelli après avoir eu balle de match. Tout ça devant mon père, ma sœur, mon frère… Franchement, j’ai eu honte de moi ! »

Un moment, pourtant, le Français a « retrouvé l’envie ». Mais, tombé à la 273e place mondiale (soit l’équivalent de son classement à la veille d’entamer sa première saison professionnelle, en 1998), « Dip » ne sait plus vraiment trop sur quel pied danser. « D’un côté, j’avais une envie dingue de jouer les qualifs de Roland, avoue celui qui fut deux fois huitième-finaliste de l’épreuve (en 1999 et en 2002). D’un autre, j’ai eu un peu peur. C’est dur d’oublier le regard des autres. C’est quand même Roland-Garros !... » La mort dans l’âme, Di Pasquale a finalement pris sa décision : il renonce. À vingt-six ans, il se refuse néanmoins à lire son avenir : « Je ferai le bilan en fin d’année, dit-il. J’ai envie de jouer cette saison à fond. Mais comment mon corps réagira-t-il aux efforts que je vais lui demander ? »

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Re: News about Di pasquale???

hi Alex. Arnaud left a message (in french) on my forum a couple of weeks ago...
Last time on court was at the Timisoara Challenger where he reached the QF.
and he's supposed to play in Geneva next week.

Pauvre Dip. Il pourrait créer une assoc' avec Nico Escudé, dand le genre pas de bol ils sont au top niveau blessure.
Apparemment ça va mieux à ce niveau là, espérons que ça dure.

"A little pic of Dip with other french players, yesterday in RG..."
They were not in RG but at Jean Bouin...


Another pic on which you can see Dip celebrating the PJB's title ( his club...) with other players (the man who's carried triomphantly is Arnaud Lagardère, the "sponsor"...).

The poor guy lost against the promissing Croatian youngster Marin Cilic (WC) in the first round of the Geneva challenger 1-6, 6-4, 6-2...

What were Dip's injuries exactly?

Re: News about Di pasquale???

Any chance of seeing Arnaud playing at Roland Garros this year? If, the qualification tournament at first, right...

Re: News about Di pasquale???

This year, Arnaud lost in the qualies to Arnaud Dupuis 6/2, 5/7, 4/6. When will Arnaud finally really be back on the tour with some match wins?

Re: News about Di pasquale???

It's reeducation time, again, for Arnaud : he did not play any tourney since early july when he withdrew at Montauban challenger due to an achilles tendinitis.
Maybe Geneva or Manerbio in a couple of weeks since he's on the alternate lists for these.

Poor Arnaud! Just move in next door and you never need to play tennis again in your life because I will see you every day then...

Has Arnaud lost all his fans?
