On sporever.fr:

Oficiellement, Sébastien Grosjean a déclaré forfait pour la demi-finale de Coupe Davis face à l’Espagne en raison d’une blessure à la cuisse gauche. Mais en réalité, le Français serait en proie à des problèmes personnels et miné par ses mauvais résultats. Déprimé, le numéro 10 mondial aurait même décidé de mettre un terme à sa saison.


On ne pourrait plus voir Sébastien Grosjean sur un court lors d’un tournoi officiel jusqu’à la fin de la saison. Il aurait en effet décidé de mettre à terme à sa saison, perturbé par des problèmes personnels et très déçu par ses résultats. Le Français ne serait plus motivé pour jouer et bien jouer sur un court de tennis. Mais officiellement, le numéro 10 mondial a renoncé à la demi-finale de Coupe Davis face à l’Espagne en raison d’une blessure à la cuisse…

Poor Seb...is horrible to know that, but it's not a surprise according his attitude on the court...Since month he hasn't been the seb we use to know smiling and motived....
Furthermore there is many weeks that sportifonline doesn't give us of his news...maby all of that is linked, i don't know...
The depression isn't official, but i don't think an injury is all of the problem....
I hope he could be fine soon, and he doesn't decide to stop tennis...but only him know what is the better.
It's difficult because in english i can't express very well what i want to say...:s
An other bad news, there is a rumor about a seperation between seb and his coach Tulasne... perhaps it's better if he decides to begin a new carreer?
Well, i think we'll know more tomorrow...

Kiss to every body (and especially for seb ;))

ps: sorry for the french article... i had to work and i'm not good at all at english...:s i think the lastone is the main reason! ;)

:confused: So, what does this article say exactly? He won't play anymore this season? (that's what I understand from it). I must say, the withdrawal from the DC doesn't surprise me at all - in fact, I was more surprised that he was going to play. And a break with Tulasne doesn't seem a bad idea either. He desperately needs new motivation. Let's wait for more news.

In fact we don't know if sebastian won't play anymore this season...seb think about it but it's not sure...

Bad news... :s

Le directeur technique national, Jean-Claude Massias, a annoncé indirectement, mardi soir dans un communiqué, que la saison 2004 était définitivement terminée pour le n°1 français, Sébastien Grosjean.


Jean-Claude Massias a par ailleurs indiqué que Thierry Tulasne, qui entraînait Grosjean depuis décembre 2002, retrouverait son poste d'entraîneur national à la suite de la décision du joueur de mettre un terme à sa saison 2004. Le DTN confirme ainsi que Grosjean ne jouera plus cette année et qu'il a mis un terme au contrat qui le liait à Tulasne.

Sébastien Grosjean n'a remporté que 28 victoires pour 15 défaites depuis début 2004 et n'a pas joué une seule fois avec l'équipe de France en Coupe Davis. Ses meilleurs résultats ont été un quart de finale à l'Open d'Australie, une finale au Queen's et une demi-finale à Wimbledon. Mais il a disparu dès le premier tour à Montréal et à Cincinnati avant d'échouer en quarts de finale aux Jeux Olympiques d'Athènes et au deuxième tour à l'US Open.

Le dernier de ses trois titres remonte à octobre 2002 à Saint-Pétersbourg. Il lui avait permis de se hisser à la 4e place dans la hiérarchie mondiale. Miné par des blessures et des problèmes personnels, Grosjean n'a cessé de donner une image terne de lui cette saison. Il est actuellement classé 10e mondial, tant dans le championnat mondial 2004 de l'ATP qu'au classement technique.


Well i don't know what to say... it's horrible because seb isn't fine and we can't do any thing.... :(
I hope this break will be good for him and we'll see him next year in great fit.

Yes I think too.. I was really sad when I learned that, I couldn't work correctly at school.. Seb is really bad and what are we doing? Nothing, we just hope he will feel better because this man with a gold heart don't need problems, he's so generous !!!
Why??? why seb???? He isn't lucky what can we do.. Seb we love you, just be fine...

As always I don't get a word when the interview is in French, but from everybody else's reaction I can make a guess...
WHAT WHAT WHAT!!!??? Do you seriously mean that he isn't going to play again in year 2004? Just how injured is he? Or is the break due to other, unspecified reasons? Ever since Wimbledon he's been out of sorts, losing and not playing particularly well, and certainly not up to usual standards - but do you really believe there's actually something wrong with him? Depressed? Not happy with Tuslasne? Not happy with tennis??? (God forbid)

I haven't seen him in a million years or something like it, but I really want to see him back on the courts AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! And preferably in a happy mood, with his adorable smile plastered all over his face, and playing the stylish flamboyant tennis I always connect with him!!!

Please, get well, Grosjean!

It's official, he broke up with Tulasne...OMG !! Why ??
His decisions are so weird, I don't understand !!! WHAT HAPPENS IN HIS LIFE ???????

I don't think he's depressed about his results, after losing in us open, he wasn't disapointed at all, in the contrary ! And Seb is not the guy who stops his season because he thinks he plays badly. No. I guess he has big personnal problems if he decided to stop. :sad:

I agree Marine. Especially now that he's in the top 10. Isn't that what he always wanted?

Today's news on Fox Sports:

Grosjean misses semi-final

From correspondents in Paris
September 15, 2004

FRANCE will be without its top player Sebastien Grosjean for the Davis Cup tennis semi-final against Spain later this month.

Team captain Guy Forget today said he would count on Arnaud Clement, Mickael Llodra, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Fabrice Santoro and replacement Julien Benneteau for the tie on clay in Alicante from September 24-26.

A left thigh injury had initially been given for world No.10 Grosjean's decision not to play.

But a series of poor results are also being blamed for the Frenchman's low spirits and his subsequent decision to end the season.

Grosjean, eliminated in the second round of the US Open earlier this month, has not played Davis Cup this year, missing the first round against Croatia because of an adductor injury and the quarter-finals against Switzerland because of a virus.

"Until now we've played the entire 2004 campaign without him and we've gotten through. We're still just as motivated as before," said Forget.

Mathieu has been recalled after being left in the cold following a crushing defeat in the final against Russia in 2002.

Spain, who has a 4-1 record against France, comprises of Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo and Rafael Nadal.

The other semi-final will be between the US and Belarus on hard court in Charleston, South Carolina with the final set for December 3-5.

I'm not going to jump to conclusions; as far as I can tell the only official news up to now is his break with Tulasne (and that is not so weird a decision as he needs a new impulse - tennis players break up with their coaches all the time, don't they?).

I think the rest is just conjecture. Poor results? F Queens, SF Wimbledon, QF Olympics, being in the top 10 are poor results?

You know, Sjeng Schalken suffered from a virus earlier this season; and after that he was tired all the time. Recently, it turned out he had glandular fever. Maybe it's something like that with Seb, as he was suffering from a virus also earlier this season (same time as Schalken, actually). Hmmm now I'm conjecturing myself LOL.

It's just that I don't see Sébastien Grosjean being depressed! He's such a happy-go-lucky kind of person (or so it seems). But if he needs time to get his act together and sort things out, so be it.

I tried to translate the article of l'equipe of today,please excuse the translation...

That's monday that the rumor has started to leak out in tennis's world. The reason ? "personal problems". Hard to find confirmation, S.Grosjean, who's in Florida, decided to change his phone number, and, since a while, is very selective at phone.
Yesterday morning, Thierry Tulasne confirmed: "I can't say anything. Duty to preserve secrecy. That's frustating not to explain but it's like that".
His answer was a semi confession.
In the after noon, J.C Massias (DTN), confirmed too: "I had Sebastien at phone, he said me he decided to stop his season cos of an injury, ans so he won't be able to play the DC. I don't know more".
In the same time, a press release of AFP annonced the compostition of the team, adding: "Grosjean is perturbed by personal problems and depressed bu his bad results".
After, Sebastien G. publicated himself a press release, without allusion to his private life.
[...]
For the moment, it seems that he might give more info today about his situation.
Why to be simple when it's possible to be difficult ? What's the gravity of his injury ? Is his withdraw linked to personal problems ? Which future for the player who had annonced, some times ago, that he wanted to be number 1 ?
So many questions that deserve answers.
To read his atp ranking, it's not depressing though. Number 10, he was still in the running for a quelification in the masters. [...]



Guy Forget'c recation in interview:
How did you know for sebastien's injury ?
3 days ago. He called me and said he was hurted after playing football with friends. That's a pîty...of course I think we are penalized bu that. I'm quite shattered, even if I can count on another players. But I thought Seb would be there, we needed of him. But it's like that, he can't be there. Can can I say ? He's in the USA...

It seems he stoped his season after this "injury" ? Whzt do you think about that ?
I can't comment that, there are lots things I don't tknow. It's not to me to speak a about. Seb says me "I can't play, I'm injured". Well, so, ok...



My feeling: it is very weird all these secrets. I don't like that at all.
I wonder what he thinks, what he does, what are his problems ?
But I have the impression that Guy is very disapointed. He probably knows more tha he wants to say, and he probably knows it's not cos of an injury.
I know he counts a lot on his best player, on the team spirit etc... just hope this situation won't turn in a "santoro polemic bis". :sad:

Got to agree with you there Wilma.

I've only just read this thread,and I'm sad that he won't be playing for the rest of the season;but if he can sort out whatever is troubling him and be 'fresh' for next year,it may be just what he needs :)

Marine

Thierry Tulasne gave an interview today. Of course he doesn't say anything about Seb's problems.

Thierry Tulasne n’est plus l’entraîneur de Sébastien Grosjean qui a décidé de mettre fin à leur collaboration mardi. Avant de réintégrer la cellule des entraîneurs de la FFT, Tulasne revient sur ses années passées avec le numéro 1 français. Une relation qui se termine « en queue de poisson ».


Thierry Tulasne, on a appris mardi que vous cessiez votre collaboration avec Sébastien Grosjean. Qu’allez-vous faire maintenant ?
Je réintègre l’équipe des anciens internationaux à la Fédération française de tennis. Jean-Claude Massias, le Directeur technique national, réfléchit sur la meilleure organisation possible sachant que tout venait de commencer, la rentrée venait d’arriver… Moi, j’étais reparti pour un an avec Sébastien donc il n’est pas facile aujourd’hui de réorganiser. Donc ça va prendre un petit peu de temps pour voir, par rapport aux éventuelles demandes de joueurs, où je serai le mieux. Aujourd’hui, je ne sais absolument pas.

Quel bilan dressez-vous de votre collaboration avec Sébastien ?
Déjà beaucoup de plaisir. Une grande fierté d’avoir eu la chance de travailler avec Sébastien qui est dans les dix meilleurs joueurs du monde depuis deux ans. Il a terminé l’année 2003 10eme. Il a fait demi-finales à Wimbledon et quarts de finale en Australie cette année et la saison dernière. Il est aujourd’hui 10eme mondial. Il avait une grande chance de se qualifier pour le Masters, sachant en plus que Coria ne va sûrement pas rejouer de l’année. Donc, je suis très fier de ce qu’on a fait ensemble et en même temps un petit peu frustré avec le sentiment de ne pas être allé au bout de ce qu’on aurait pu faire.

Quel est votre meilleur souvenir avec Sébastien ?
Sans doute les deux demi-finales qu’il a jouées à Wimbledon cette année et l’an dernier. Dans le plus grand et plus beau tournoi du monde, il est allé presque jusqu’au bout, perdant une fois contre Philippoussis et surtout cette année contre Federer en ayant le sentiment qu’il n’était pas très loin de gagner. Il a plusieurs balles de troisième set. Il l’avait quand même accroché. Mais chaque tournoi s’est très bien passé. Humainement, c’était vraiment très très agréable.

Et votre plus mauvais souvenir ?
C’est la fin. Ca se termine un petit peu en queue de poisson. C’est la seule note négative de notre collaboration. J’aurais aimé qu’on aille au bout de notre collaboration. J’ai eu de mon côté le sentiment qu’on n’a pas atteint nos limites. Donc un petit peu de frustration par rapport à ça.

« La formation d’un jeune joueur m’intéresserait beaucoup aujourd’hui »

En quoi Sébastien a t-il le plus progressé à votre contact ?
Je pense qu’il a progressé dans son jeu d’attaque. Il l’a ressenti pas mal sur gazon, les surfaces ou il faut aller vers l’avant, vers la volée. Je pense qu’il a un petit peu progressé physiquement. Mais c’est sur ce plan-là qu’il a encore le plus de progrès à faire. Et quand il aura progressé, ne serait-ce que 10%, ça va lui donner cette petite confiance supplémentaire qui lui manque pour gagner les matches accrochés.

Comment va t-il aujourd’hui ?
Je n’ai pas trop de nouvelles. Il est blessé, chez lui, en Floride.

Apparemment, il est difficilement joignable et il aurait des soucis personnels…
Je ne connais pas les détails de tout ça. Je sais qu’aujourd’hui, on ne travaille plus ensemble malheureusement.

Little summary:
He's very proud having worked with Seb, he thinks Seb improved his attack game with him. His best memories are both semis in Wimbledon, his worse is today, the end of their collaboration. He's quite frustrated because he thinks they could improve some things together. He didn't know that Seb was going to broke up, he thought they were going to work together in 2005.
He doesn't have news, just said seb is at home in Florida, he's injured.
He was asked if he knows more about his personal problems...he answered:
"I don't have details of that. I just know that today we don't work together unfortunatly".

OHHH, I don't know what you thing about that, but I'm sad. Sad for Tutu, sad for Seb.
Tulasne is a good coach, he's specialized in physical.
I don't understand why Seb is so mysterious and why he broke up so suddenly. They were good friends, that's weird, because it seems they don't break up in good conditions (like arnaud did with his coach).

Alison
09-15-2004, 08:05 PM
Thanks for the update Marine. :)

I think it's sad too :sad: ,hopefully Seb will give out more information soon.

since when has a Qf at the AO,


euhhh I would have loved he reached the quarter in the AO but no... he lost in 1/8.

But I agree, his results are not bad with a 10th rank and a semi in Wimby.
I'm sure it's not the problem, Seb's main default is his lack of ambition so I don't think he's depressed by that.

Maybe he feds up tennis, he's disguted by his job I guess it comes sometimes when yoy travel a lot and when you have a family.
Maybe he has problems with his family...personly I think it's that. I can stop thinking it's maybe a problem with his wife even if I hope I'm wrong :sad:

Depression is a strange thing. It can happen to anyone. I've been there and it's not a nice thing at all.

All I can say is that I hope Seb is ok and takes all the time he needs to recover. I would love to see him back, but not until he wants to play.

First of all Marine thank you gurl for translating the article.

Which future for the player who had annonced, some times ago, that he wanted to be number 1 ?


This makes me so :sad: .. cos I think he could come closer to the high top but just with all the injuries and family stuff he wasn't able to.. ah well *sigh*


Thiery Tulasne:
It seems he stoped his season after this "injury" ? Whzt do you think about that ?
I can't comment that, there are lots things I don't tknow. It's not to me to speak a about. Seb says me "I can't play, I'm injured". Well, so, ok...

He doesn't know, he's Sebs coach, dont you know everything about ur player? :eek:

Anyway about breaking up with his coach doesn't bother me much. I think it's good for Seb, he might get his adventage out of this..
About Seb having a depression sounds kindda weird 2 me, but like PJ girl said it's possible, anything is..

We'll see guys, hopefully everything is okay with him.. He surely doesn't deserve it to have one.. :hug: :sad: but then again, who does..

In the sport newspaper "l'equipe' of today they continue to wonder what's the problem with seb (in title: the mystere Grosjean..)
They don't have more infi but they critic him a lot. His way of saying he wants to be n the best, to win a grand chelem etc..and not making the sacricfices for that.
It seems that his father is bothered by all these rumors about Seb because he gave some info in the medias (it's rare !!). He said Seb has no personal problems, that his injury is real, he's disguted by they way whose the journalists critic his son, he had seb's wife at phone yesterday and there are no problems, it's just that Seb prefers to stop his season to prepar the new season in the best conditions.

Well, all is so weird for a few days...injured or not injured, problems or no problems...but I continue to think there is a problem if Seb is so secret and if even his father is obliged to talk to the medias.
And the journalists think Seb is not injured and that he lies... they're very critical.
I don't know what to think, al that makes me so sad... :sad:

esther
09-17-2004, 02:49 AM
hmm yeah but of course his father would want to say that its just injury...and remove any rumours but i dunno...it sounds like its a lot more than just injury

we'll probably never know but poor seb in any case...taking the end of the year off even if its just for injury probably WILL make him sad if he isnt already!

poor sebie :bigcry:

After reading all this, I'm glad he's taking time off to work things out for himself. I only just found out about all this because I remembered he didn't play DC last week and I thought "he isn't injured *again*, is he?". So I went to check the board to see what was up. I've been sort of detached from Seb's tennis for a while (except for Wimby) because he really couldn't keep me interested. And I'm telling you, I have a whole lot of patience till I get bored with Seb.

Honestly, I don't believe it's purely physical. I don't think there's been a lot of sincere motivation for a while now. Tennis should be played with reckless abandon but with Seb, it's been like the court has been made of eggshells and the tiniest little thing could demoralize him. I never expected him to do well at the US Open simply because I don't think he truly believes in himself re: USO. I *know* he can do well absolutely everywhere but he's got to believe in himself and want it too.

I don't know what's going on but it seems to me he does have some personal problems. Of course I don't know whether it's depression or family problems but either way, he should take all the time he needs to work through them. It's important that he is a happy camper before he starts playing again. Because it so affects his performance. But most of all because Seb's happiness is more important than his ranking :\

I continue to think it's disturbing.

In l'equipe monday, Guy was asked about Seb...

"on raconte plein de choses sur seb. Et ce n'est pas bien car le seul aujourd'hui que a besoin de s'exprimer là-dessus, c'est lui. Il est impératif que Sébasten puisse, à un moment donné, s'exprimer et arrêter de faire planer le mystère. C'est malheureux, mais c'est lui qui a un petit peu créé cette espèce de mystère.. Il faut qu'il crève l'abcès."
...
"Il est coupé du monde. Personne n'arrive à le joindre, Arnaud non plus aux dernières nouvelles. Nous, on a eu très peu de contact avec lui, hormis ses déclarations officielles. En plus il n'est pas en France, mais à l'autre bout du monde. Il m'a laissé un message sympa !: " Bonne chance, je suis avec vous, je pense à vous " Tout ce que je lui souhaite, c'est d'aller mieux, physiquement, intellectuellement. Et mentalement aussi pour retrouver la gnaque, l'envie de jouer au tennis. Là je ne vous cache pas que je me pose des questions. Je suis un peu inquiiet."
...
"J'espère qu'il reviendra dès début 2005 car ce serait vraiment grave si il ne revenait pas en janvier. Aujourd'hui tout me laisse penser qu'il reviendra. Mais là encore il s'est passé tellement de chose... Seb dit 'je viens en coupe Davis'. Après c'est 'je ne viens pas, je suis blessé, je quitte mon entraîneur, j'arrête jusqu'à la fin de l'année'. Je lui ai laissé un message, je ne sais pas si il l'a eu d'ailleurs, juste pour lui dire que je suis là s'il a besoin de parler, oubesoin d'aide". :eek: :sad:

You know, I missed the last HK Open (which Seb was here) and you know, he doesn't come to Asia very often... even though... in Japan... :rolleyes: ... aggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... :sad:

If this address is the one, maybe we should all write him a letter of support?

hmmm that (octagon) sounds like an agent... depends on whether they'll forward fans' mail to him. but worth trying...

yea marine, that's the address I wrote to Nono and Via, you know, it really works! Try it out!
I wrote to Nono becoz there's a website said that he never disappoints his fans... and then Nono sent me back a photo with "pour kelly" and his signature !!!woowhooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ALLEZ VIA!

Not very cheery stuff to read...
And even if he does want to start the new season on top and have plenty of time to prepare well - I still find it difficult to believe that he will have to quit 2004 season this early just to do that!
Whatever is keeping him from playing, I just hope he'll make a great comeback next year, and that he will regain his confidence and be the happy guy he used to be! I'm sure he must know that he's got loyal fans all over the world, eagerly awaiting his return from the dead!

on AIG's official site they didn't say seb withdrawal so maybe we still have a chance to see him play again??

but the draws is not available yet
so, I think the web site is not the most updated one...
I think the pdf. draw sheet is the most precise one!

Well but of coz, I really hope there's some miracle!

thanks kelly.... i don't often get people 'allez' moi, lol !!!!!!!!!

the nono pr machine is highly efficient, i can see..... yup i should definitely try :D

unfortunately players usually wait till the last moment before they officially withdraw from a tourney... but i do wish for all of you a miracle in seb's case!
