Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

Poor Marc got a real spanking today from Paulo, 6-1 6-0. He was having back problems:

Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

I just read in another forum that Marc withdrew from Sydney because his wife is about to give birth (actually, the birth was expected on the 24th December, but in an interview from 04.01, he says she's still pregnant). It's their first child. So it has nothing to with his back problems, Marco is fine.
(I'm wondering if he'll play in Melbourne though?)

Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

Tough comeback win from Marc against Jones for his first match of the season: 3-6, 6-7 [1], 6-4, 6-1, 6-0. His opponent was completely exhausted at the end, he didn't need to do anything in the last sets, he says.

His child was born on 31th December and his name is... Noah!

Typical name for the child of a French tennis fan... (I read an article a while ago explaining how the number of French children named Yannick raised like crazy after "Tonton Yannick"'s victory in RG)

Congrats and i hope he's elated and all the family is allright. Now, let's find out who, out of all the other French players, will end up being chosen to be Noah's godfather... lol

Well done for his win too!

Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

Gicquel lost to Youzhny in the QF of Zagreb. Reaches his career high ranking of No. 46. Congrats...

He has a weird habit of wiping his hands of his strings.

Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

An article in L'Équipe yesterday after his match against Davydenko:
Quote:
Gicquel en flèche
Malgré sa défaite face à Davydenko,le Breton pourrait devenir le numéro 2 français dès lundi.
ROTTERDAM – de notre envoyé spécial

NIKOLAY DAVYDENKO ne sera jamais Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal ou Andy Roddick. Malgré son statut de tête de série no 1, le Russe a dû hier assurer le lever de rideau de la journée, en arrivant sur le court à… 11 heures du matin. Impensable pour un autre top 10 : « Bah… ça ne me dérange pas, dira-t-il plus tard. Je comprends que les joueurs néerlandais aient la priorité. À Moscou, je fais ce que je veux, pas ici. »

Rien ne semble perturber cette véritable machine à gagner, ni le surmenage, ni les décalages horaires, ni les changements de surface et de balles, ni les adversaires. Malgré une belle résistance (6-3, 6-3), Marc Gicquel a rejoint hier la cohorte de ses victimes, sincèrement impressionné par les aptitudes de la bête. « Je trouve que c’est un joueur sous-estimé, explique le Français. Et j’ai compris pendant ce match pourquoi il était numéro 3 mondial. » Gicquel peut juger sur pièces : en six mois, il a en effet affronté deux autres patrons du circuit, messires Federer (à l’US Open) et Roddick (à l’Open d’Australie). « Franchement, contre Roger ou contre Andy, j’ai eu l’impression de pouvoir jouer au tennis, précise-t-il. Par exemple, de pouvoir jouer en coup droit en me décalant. Hormis son service, qui est monstrueux, Roddick n’est pas très impressionnant. Mais Davydenko, c’est autre chose… Pendant le match, je n’arrêtais pas de me demander : “Que faire ?” Et je n’ai pas trouvé la réponse. » Si le Russe reste une telle énigme, c’est qu’il ne laisse aucune ouverture à son rival : « Il sert bien, il retourne monstrueux, il va vite, il ne bouge pas de sa ligne de fond et il tape très fort des deux côtés, résume le Français. Respect ! »

Malgré sa défaite, Gicquel vit actuellement une période bénie : père depuis le 31 décembre d’un petit Noah, il pointe aujourd’hui au 44e rang mondial (son meilleur classement) et fera encore mieux lundi prochain : si Julien Benneteau ne réédite pas sa demi-finale de l’an dernier à Memphis, le Breton deviendra en effet le numéro 2 français, derrière Richard Gasquet. « Je sais, “Jéjé” (son coach, Jérôme Potier) m’en a parlé ce matin (hier), avoue-t-il. Bien sûr que ça me fait plaisir. Je suis toujours de très près ces histoires de classement… »

Objectif top 30
À vingt-neuf ans, il se découvre de semaine en semaine de nouvelles ambitions. « Là, je vise le top 30, lâche-t-il. Je sais que ce sera difficile. Plus on monte, plus ça l’est. Mais je me débrouille bien sur dur extérieur et sur terre battue et je n’ai que 90 points à défendre d’ici Roland-Garros. C’est jouable. Mais il faudra faire attention à deux choses : que je reste constant dans ma concentration et que je puisse m’entretenir physiquement. Le physique, c’est quand même mon atout no 1. »

Son ascension pourrait faire de lui un sérieux candidat à la Coupe Davis. « Je ne suis pas certain que Guy Forget me connaisse bien, glisse-t-il. Mais c’est sûr que j’en rêve, même en tant que cinquième homme… » Il retrouverait alors à Moscou, début avril, un certain Nikolay Davydenko.
VINCENT COGNET
He will be the French number 2 on Monday!

Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

merci Truc

en fait c'est intéressant ce qu'il dit de Roddick, n'est-ce pas?

Re: ~~Marc Gicquel~~

What a choke from Marco today against Igor Andreev in Dubai...

7-6(4) (being led 3-0 in the TB and not converting 5 BPs during the set ), 4-6 (being broken at 4-4 of course... ), 7-5 (he broke in the first service game and hold on to serve for the match quite easily then got tight and gave Andreev 3 BPs and got broken at 5-4, Andreev then broke him to love again at 5-6 to win :retard: ).
