Re: Nicolas Mahut

Well done Nico! Was sorry I didn't go to Qualies today, would have been a real treat to see this live. I did watch the 2nd set of his previous match and it seems it was quite the opposite, a very dominant display. He was all smiles afterwards and after he finished he first watched ERV and then came to check on Mannarino. It was really nice to see all the Frenchies all supporting each other.

Hope he can recover well for the next round on Thursday as it would be a real shame if he didn't qualify.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++

Re: Nicolas Mahut

There is an long article about this in lequipe today with the pic i posted. The last set lasted 2h51 minutes. He has to win three sets today i hope he will feel good because Julien Varlet who talk to him says he had fessier pain after the match. Good luck

Re: Nicolas Mahut

I was at that match and it was really intense - and such high quality as well! I just had a feeling it would go a long way because both players seemed quite relaxed and were holdly comfortably but I didn't expect 24-22 in the third set! Great serving and netplay, as per usual, but again, when he was pulled out wide, his forehand looked very suspect on the stretch.

I listened to the podcast this morning, I'm still shocked by how bad it was! I already find unbelievable tennis journalists don't know about the Wimby seedings formula, but even Varlet has no clue whatsoever!

Nico was very moved to have made the cover of L'Equipe yesterday:
Quote:
C’est Maxi-Mahut
EST-CE LE FAIT d’avoir fait la petite une de L’Équipe, hier, après son exploit contre Bogdanovic au deuxième tour (victoire 3-6,6-3,24-22 avec un troisième set long de 2 h 51’) – « c’était ma première une et ça m’a super touché » – , reste que Nicolas Mahut (149e ATP) a confirmé hier face à Stefan Koubek (123e ATP) et de quelle façon ! Abonné au marathon, le Français s’est imposé 6-7 (8-10), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4,6-4 en 3 h 58’... Et le voilà dans le grand tableau de Wimbledon. Mais dans quel état ? Même s’il lui reste trois jours pour se remettre sur pied. « Depuis mardi tout le monde me demandait si ça allait et je répondais que oui, que ça allait le faire, mais en fait j’étais déjà mort, expliquait-il hier. Je suis entré sur le court avec une petite contracture à la cuisse gauche et j’en suis sorti complètement cassé. » Alors, un miracle ? « Étrangement, je ne me souviens pas trop de ce qui s’est passé pendant le match. Je m’étais mis dans une bulle, je refusais d’avoir mal et j’ai joué dans un état second. Même mené deux sets à rien je me suis retourné vers mes entraîneurs pour les rassurer. » Et bien que Koubek s’escrima à le faire courir du fond – « ça, il m’a fait galoper » –, Mahut resta serein dans sa filière service-volée sur ses propres engagements. « J’étais calme, je savais que je ne pouvais pas lâcher. » Persuadé depuis sa victoire chez les juniors en 2000 qu’il fera un gros truc un jour à Wimbledon, Nicolas Mahut attendait avec impatience le tirage au sort qui a lieu ce matin avec juste un souhait : « Éviter Federer d’entrée. »
He confirms he was in pain before the match already, he has a little problem in the left thigh. He doesn't event remember what happened exactly during the match, he refused to feel the pain and played in a trance. Even when he was 2 sets down, he was telling his coaches in the stands to not worry. He felt calm, he knew he wouldn't give up, even though Koubek was making him run like crazy. He's been having the feeling since his title in the Juniors event in 2000 that he will do something great in Wimbledon one day. He can't wait for his draw and has just one wish, no Fed in the first round.

Re: Nicolas Mahut

Isner doesn't like grass he's poor on that surface bacause he can't move on but with his serve it will be a tough match maybe boring.

Youzhny - Sela
Gicquel - Mathieu
De Bakker - Giraldo
Mahut - Isner

I know but his serve alone will win him matches. I was hoping for someone like Hernandez or Korolev but not to worry, Nico should be proud of himself for making it through qualifying
