New tournament, new chances! Seb did extremely well here last year, reaching the finals. He's seeded 5th. First round is a bye, so at least he reaches second round ;) Let's see what happens!!

Alison
06-06-2004, 12:07 PM
It doesn't seem like a year since Queens :D

At least I'll get to see him play this tourney,that's if he's in it long enough :rolleyes:

Marine

He plays in double with Richard Gasquet.

How kind of them to think of their lady fans! :kiss:

Lizan

OMGG how can he be so unlucky?? With Philipoussis there in quarters.. Well okay, we'll see what happens.. I can follow it, it's on eurosport!!

Sorry made a mistake it's even before the qaurters, they meet each other.

Alison, u didn't see RG then?? Coz you said you waited ages..

Lizan
06-07-2004, 10:15 AM
On which channels you can see tennis in England? BBC1 & 2??

Alison
06-07-2004, 02:06 PM
I got Roland Garros,Lizan,but neither of Seb's matches.There was a slight :rolleyes: bias towards Henman.

It's on BBC2 here,but it's the same match as Eurosport are showing at the moment :rolleyes: ,but they did show Seb when the prog started :D as they were asking the players where the term 'seed' had come from.

Did he know the right answer?

Alison
06-08-2004, 08:20 AM
No,but at least he made a suggestion as to where it came from :) ,unlike certain American players who just went 'Doh,I dunno' (Homer Simpson stle) :rolleyes:


Good to see his hair's getting longer again! ;) :D

wilma
06-08-2004, 09:52 AM
Really? What did he say? And dammit why didn't I watch yesterday?

And he probably waited with winning any tournaments this year until his hair had regrown to the right length ;)

Alison
06-08-2004, 12:54 PM
I could hardly hear what he said cos Ro was going 'Ooooh it's Seb!! Look look!! Oooh what's he saying? Doesn't he look lovely!! ' :drool: :hearts: ;)

That's definitely a good scoreline for a guy who was playing well this week.

Keep going Seb!!! :bounce: :bounce:

wilma
06-11-2004, 09:12 AM
Well done, Seb!!! Am I too pessimistic when I say that he hasn't really been tested so far? Anyway, great that they showed his matches two days in a row :D I really liked his effeminate little squeals when he didn't agree with a line call :p And which material are his shorts made of :confused: They were all shiny, like nylon.
Good luck to Seb this afternoon!

Good to have you back, Stella!

Lizan
06-11-2004, 11:37 AM
I think they are not going to show his match today, because they don't air tennis that long unfortunatly. And Seb is on third..

crystal
06-11-2004, 12:39 PM
Hello everyone :wavey:
haven't been there for ages...I had some exams, and also some problems with my password !!!
Hey please Lizan keep watching seb's match !!! If you can make him win, lol... ;)
I've found some words from Flanagan about seb, that sounds quite good :D , although Flanangan is only ranked 866...

"He was superb," said Flanagan of his more experienced opponent. "He didn't give me an inch and he didn't miss a ball. He's the best player I've ever played against. But overall I'm pleased with the way this week has gone for me. I beat Philippoussis and Hanescu, so it shows you can beat anyone in the world."

anyway, good luck to seb !

I'm green with envy! You lucky people who can watch Eurosport and Stella Artois! I've moved and now I don't have cable tv - so goodbye to Eurosport and all hopes of watching Grosjean play a tournament that is not a Grand Slam! I can't believe it, but it's close on a year ago that I actually saw him! Ah, well, if he does well in Wimbledon I can see him soon - with his longer hair and new ugly tshirt!

ubrunjensen
06-11-2004, 06:25 PM
Hurrah! Just realized that he's actually in the semis in Queen's! Great! I so want him to take on Roddick in the final! Roddick is difficult to beat, and he's had loads of trouble with the American for the last few years - but imagine him giving Roddick a thrashing??? And in a final??? Wouldn't that just be lovely...sigh!? Anyway, come on, Grosjean! Please, get to the final! Please, win a title this year!

crystal
06-11-2004, 07:01 PM
next opponent is Lee !
Hey, better is Lee than Hewitt or Roddick in semis !
GO SEB !!!!!!!!!
He can make the finals !!

crystal
06-11-2004, 07:25 PM
I mean...it's better for seb to meet Lee in semis than Hewitt or roddick !

Marine
06-11-2004, 07:42 PM
I sew the match, he played well (his passing shots awww :D ).
And he was interviewed at the end, in english...well, I think it's too late for him, he won't never be good in english, but it's better than Arnaud ! lol

crystal
06-11-2004, 08:09 PM
lol Marine !
and what did he say ?

Marine
06-11-2004, 08:31 PM
Ughh..tu me poses une colle là ! lol
No, seriously, he said something like he played well, served well, returned well...likes this tournament, hopes the crows will support him at the next round... (I don't want to find an excuse but it's not easy to understand cos the french journalist translated at the same time, while everyone is able to understand seb's english... :rolleyes: )

Lizan
06-11-2004, 09:00 PM
LOOOL Marine, I saw it too, the whole match AND the interview (LoL Crystal, I will do that, watch his matches so that he wins lol, no problem :lol: ).. I think he's soooo cute how he speaks english, with the accent.. As Alison said: he says "gwass". it's sooo obvious!

He said he feels good on grass. I was really scared in the first set of the match, I really thought Stepanek was the better one in that set.. Fortunatly Seb got his high level back at the end of the first set. Still don't think he played the way he should be playing to win this tourney.. He was really playing dramaticly in the first few games..

I don't want to see him play R*****k.. The guy has a serve I absolutely don't like to see, it irritates me, coz nobody can break him (accept Federer).. Hopefully hewitt wins tomorrow (which he really deserves, and THEN it's going to be an interesting final, IF Seb is going to make it.

Lizan
06-11-2004, 09:03 PM

Marine

he says "gwass"
What ? It's not that ??
I suppose he tried not prononcing "à la française" "gRRasse"

Lizan
06-11-2004, 09:23 PM
No really he says Gwass, didn't u notice??
He'd better prenounce it "à la française" then, it's better.. No actually he should leave it like this, it's nice lol.. He prenounced Surface in french ohhhh I could watch that interview alllll day!!!! (recorded it :cool: lol)..

crystal
06-11-2004, 09:37 PM
looooool Lizan !!!
Yeah, keep on watching seb lol, we trust you !!!!!!!
I think he has a good opportunity tomorrow, he should beat the Korean Lee.
Anyway, if Lee is in semis it means that he played good, and after all he beat the man who beat Henman...so....but as Lee is a qualifier, maybe he's tired, who knows ?
Good luck to seb ! (maybe he won't need much luck as Lizan will be watching his match, he he....;-)

:hatoff: to Seb for not only hanging in there but for edging past Lee. I was seriously baffled but how well Lee was playing in the 2nd set. Seb was 4-1 down in the 2nd after having lost the 1st set. As I write this he's leading 3-0 in the third. Right on, Seb, I though Lee had it in the bag! :worship:

A big welcome to faraway :)
I've also noticed you posting here Katherine (Tennis724) :wavey:

Yay, I'm back - hello to everyone coz I haven't been into the player forums for a few weeks now (I feel like I've been neglecting Seb :().

I am so annoyed because yesterday cable TV here showed all the quarter finals live but Seb's match was on at about 2.30am and I fell asleep :( Tonight the Euro2004 football is starting and they have kicked the tennis off the air all together - I only get a replay tomorrow :mad:

I have been 'watching' Seb's semi on the Live Scoreboard and it's been a nerve-racking experience!!!!!!! I thought he was completely gone in that 2nd set.... 2 breaks I thought was going to be impossible to crawl back from but what a great comeback.

Well done Seb... now I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I hope Hewitt beats Roddick (I dislike Hewitt with a passion).

GO SEB :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

aarrghh my computer broke down earlier this week, so I couldn't check the order of play this morning and somehow I was convinced that Roddick and Hewitt would start today's matches. Fell into Seb's match when they started the second tie break, but after hearing that he had been 4-1 down, I'm actually glad I didn't see it, because I would have gone to pieces. It was good to see him fighting again!

Seb's in the final and I've got my computer back. Life is wonderful :D

I know, following a match on the scoreboard is nerve wrecking; but I'd totally forgotten how nerve wrecking it is to see a match live on TV. Anyway, he made some great points - and did some stupid things as well. Tomorrow it's Roddick :scared: Let's hope Seb does better than last year.

Tricky_Forehand
06-12-2004, 06:45 PM
Hi Peta :wavey:

Yep, I finally made my way to Seb's forum :D . Sometimes it's just not enough to cheer on his score in a scoring thread :D :D

SEB!!!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

I didn't get up to watch the Live SB because I made that horrible mistake in thinking that he would win in straights :o . Will I never learn?? :rolleyes:

When I saw that score my first thought was :eek: but then :bounce: because it was Seb in the end :yeah:

Go Seb!! Believe in yourself tomorrow!!!

Lizan
06-12-2004, 07:13 PM
LOL tennis742, OMG good match!!
The only thing I'm missing is the acceleration of his forhand. Didn't see it once in this tournament. And I think that is Seb's best weapon!

His 1st serve is a little bit scary, coz he hardly hits it in, but also good coz he hitted a few aces. I think he serves soooo good, so hard. Most of them were over 200 km/h. Impressive!!

Fingers crossed for tomorrow..

7/6 - 6/4.. Not a bad score is it? I was really really really happy with his play. For the first time this year I think he can beat anyone, even Roddick..

There was this two points were I could cry :sad:.. The worst one was in the first set when it was 6/5 for Seb, and 40/30 breakpiont. That one should have been his, the whole field was open. What would have happend when he did win that piont and got the first set (7/5)?? Who knows he might have won..

And the one in the tiebreak.. Ohhh and there were he had a break in the first game of the second set. He was playing one of his best matches I've seen, I guess..

Maryse
06-13-2004, 03:47 PM
Poor Seb.
He lost once again versus Roddick : 7-6/6-4 :sad:
Maybe next year...

Good luck for Wimbledon !!!

He has been good enough. Like Lizan said, sometimes win or lost is decided by several points. Today seb isn't lucky. But, at least we know he is in a good status. We can expect him a good show at wimbly.

Queen's (ATP) - Birmingham (WTA Tour)
Déceptions finales
(13/06 - 17h10) - Cette semaine n'a pas apporté de titre supplémentaire au tennis français en 2004, malgré la présence en finale de Sébastien Grosjean au Queen's et de Tatiana Golovin à Birmingham. Le n°1 français a calé, comme l'an passé, face à Andy Roddick (7/6 (4), 6/4). La seconde a été dominée par Maria Sharapova (4/6, 6/2, 6/1).

Que peut se reprocher Sébastien Grosjean après cette deuxième défaite en finale face à Andy Roddick au Queen's ? Pas grand-chose, car évidemment, face à un tel serveur, il faut à chaque fois réussir un miracle en retours.

Et pourtant, "Seb" peut nourrir des regrets. Il s'est en effet procuré deux balles de première manche, à 6-5, 15-40 sur le service de l'Américain. Rien à faire sur la première, effacée d'une grosse première balle. Mais sur la seconde, le Marseillais a eu une opportunité en or. Après un bon retour, il a bénéficié d'une balle courte, mais son attaque de coup droit est sortie hors des limites du court...

L'occasion du n°1 français était passée. Car dans le tie-break, malgré deux jolis passings, il cédait 7 points à 4, en commettant notamment une double faute. Grâce à un jeu blanc superbe, il réussissait bien le break d'entrée au deuxième set, mais il perdait immédiatement cet avantage en manquant une volée basse. Dès lors, Roddick alignait les énormes services et à 5-4, "Seb" craquait une dernière fois sur sa mise en jeu. Dommage mais ce résultat va lui permettre de se maintenir autour de la 13e place qu'il occupait cette semaine. A Wimbledon, il lui faudra une nouvelle fois faire preuve de son talent sur gazon, pour faire aussi bien que sa demi-finale en 2003.

--like you guys said...he had a few opportunities but the scoreline is pretty good and sounds like he gave andy a run for his money. Good luck for Wimby Seb!!

Hey whassup everyone
It's such a long time that I haven't notice about Seb... I am too busy! Until when I was watching TV in Beijing and they had some report about the Stella Artois... and back to HK I saw Seb in TV (Sports news)!!! He did a nice job, although he lost to Roddick like last year... but I think he will be going well in the Wimby!
Oh anyone knows where Seb gonna play next? His name is not in the draws of Ordina or Nottingham! Oh where is Seb?

p.s. welcome here Faraway, and, are you living in China? Where? I am from Hong Kong!

Yes, Grosjean certainly has done more than well at Queen's! Too bad he didn't win, though I think he must have put up a fairly decent fight, looking at the close score. Not bad for a guy who's been pestered with injuries and a virus all first half of the year!

Surely he will go far in Wimbledon???

Only problem is: what to choose to watch, Wimby or European Championships in Portugal??? Both finals are to be played on my birthday!!

Wow, I only just finished watching the Queen's final on video. That really was very close! Seb played really well and had some amazing shots. Too bad he gave up a bit in the end, but maybe he was getting tired. He returned Roddick's serves amazingly well. I liked the interview with Andy Roddick at the end and Seb's cheeky smile when Roddick predicted a 1-0 victory of the English football team over France (mwahahahaha).

Grosjean actually predicted the French victory? Maybe he should place bettings? Or maybe he doesn't really need the money...? Anyway, it was a thrilling match, and it was just amazing the way the French suddenly had the luck of the Irish - Zidane's free kick was beautiful, and his penalty just showed how bad Beckham's was!
