Re: *Alexandre Sidorenko*

a slightly amusing commentary of his match against Nishikori :

In the boys’ tournament Alexandre Sidorenko moved through to his first junior grand slam semifinal, courtesy of a well-timed rain delay. Sidorenko, from France, was 2-5 down against Japan’s Kei Nishikori of Japan when the heavens opened. When play resumed, indoors, it was Sidorenko who seized the initiative, eventually winning 46 63 62.

“It wasn’t my day and then the rain helped me. I wasn’t in the match. During the break I spoke to my coach and he just told me to start moving because then my game would come and he was right - I started playing much better,” said Sidorenko. “Yesterday I had a day off and went to the zoo because I’ve never been to Australia before and I wanted to see koalas and kangaroos because you can’t see them in France. I think maybe I had too much time away from tennis and I lost my rhythm.”

Sidorenko admitted that it wasn’t the first time he had benefited from a rain delay – he fought from 1-5 down in the final set on the only previous occasion where the weather had intervened. “I ‘m very lucky with rain delays, every time I get one I am losing and I got and win the match,” he said. “I think I would do well at Wimbledon – it’s my tournament!”

Re: *Alexandre Sidorenko*

La premiere fois que j'ai entendu parler de lui il devait avoir 8/9 ans, dans tennismag, futur espoir.
Et je l'ai vu chez Delarue aussi il y a un certain temps, c'était sur le thème des enfants champîons etc...je me rappelle juste qu'il a un pere un peu tyrannique et qu'il mange et dort tennis et ne fait rien d'autre, ne voit personne d'autre en dehors. C'était assez effrayant à voir.

Re: *Alexandre Sidorenko*

Funny guy.

“It’s a bit of a tradition for French players to play well in Australia and I want to keep it going,” said Sidorenko. “I feel very proud to have a chance to join them. I played a final last week at the warm-up tournament at Nottinghill and I was a little nervous, so I hope to learn from that. I have to take the final like it’s a first or a second round match. I have to try to play my game and see what happens.”

For the second day in succession Melbourne Park was hit by a deluge which forced junior singles matches onto the indoor courts but Sidorenko didn’t seem to mind, in fact he said he was delighted to find himself back inside. “Once again I’m very happy about the rain helping me again. I wasn’t playing well in the first set, I was losing in my match and then it rained and we stopped, then we went indoors and I played better,” said Sidorenko. “I will be watching the weather forecast tonight because I hope it rains tomorrow. It’s become like a talisman for me. Maybe I’ll do a rain dance like a Red Indian! If it rains again I might think it’s my destiny to win.”
