Florent plays against Warwinka (Lucky Looser) today in the first round. Good Luck Flo.

At least this time there won't be the 2 annoying men in the crowd...

Re: Florent Serra

He lost 6-3 6-4
In the 1st set Warwinka played really good and broke him early in the set. In the 2nd Florent rised his level of game but at 4*-2 15-30 the empire didn't announce a ball who was clearly out from Warwinka and then Flo couldn't save the 2 BP... That's sad that he didn't manage to keep focused cos he could have make it.
Congrats to Stan though. Well done.

Re: Florent Serra

From l'équipe:

Florent Serra: "J'étais relativement tendu. Et le fait qu'il m'ait pris à la gorge ne m'a pas aidé à me libérer. Au second set, j'ai senti qu'il ya vait quelque chose à faire quand j'ai réussi à mener 4-1. J'imposais mon jeu. Mais, sur la fin, je n'ai pas osé avancer et j'ai fait des fautes. Je me suis tendu, j'ai reculé alors qu'il fallait que je continue à imposer mon rythme. Il faut que j'arrive à être plus entreprenant. Je peux faire mieux, même si je n'ai pas autant de confiance en indoor que sur les surfaces extérieures. Cela dit, jouer comme ça devant les spectateurs français, ça restera un super souvenir. J'aurais évidemment préféré ne pas conclure la saison comme ça, mais je suis content d'avoir connu l'ambiance sur ce central. C'est une belle expérience. Terminer à Bercy, ça n'était même pas dans mon esprit en début d'année. Cette saison a été géniale. J'ai tout connu, des petits challengers, aux Master Series. En début d'année prochaine, je vais intégrer le tableau de l'Open d'Australie et ceux des tournois sud-américains. C'est super. Je suis content, je suis encore jeune!".


Sorry, it's not the best translation ever , but I did it quiclky
"I was rather tense. And the fact that he played so well from the very beginning of the match, didn't help me to relax. In the second set, I felt I could do something when I managed to lead 4-1. I was imposing my game. But, at the end, I didn't dare to advance and I made some errors. I tensed, I moved back while I should have kept imposing my rythm. I have to be more active. I can do better, even if I am not as confident in indoors as on outside courts. Anyway, playing like this in front of the french crowd will remain a great memory. Obviously, I would have prefered not ending my season like this, but I am happy to have known the atmosphere of the central court. It's a beautiful experience. Ending with Bercy was not even in my mind at the beginning of the year. This season has been great. I have known everything, from small chellengers to Masters Series. Next year, I will enter the draw of the Australian Open as well as some clay tournaments in South America. That's great. I am confident, I am still young!"

Unhappy Re: Florent Serra

I'm so glad Florent has such a positive attitude! He deserves the best! He has plenty of time to improve and maybe reach the top 50 or top 10! He will do even better next year now that he has the experience! I hope he comes to Houston for the U.S Men's Clay Court Championships so I can watch him!
