I find it odd that Escude is playing. Maybe his injury aint as bad as first thought. That is good to hear tho. Hopefully he doesnt strain it any worse than it already is!

I might be going for other people in this tourney...LOL....but still...good luck to the holy one and his boys!!!! :D

I think he has not pulled out yet because he's titleholder.

He said he hoped he would not have to play before Wednesday. So that lets him a few days to see how bad his injury is or not and how quickly he recovers or not.

I hope it's nothing serious and he can play but I would not be surprised if he still pulls out.

nope he didn't pull out...l'equipe said he confirmed he was still gonna defend the title

« j'étais un peu fatigué par mon match d'hier contre Nicolas (Escude). Sur cette surface, vous devez être rapide et je ne l’étais pas aujourd'hui. Physiquement, je n'y étais pas non plus. Raemon (Sluiter) servait bien. Je ne pouvais pas m’appuyer sur mon service aujourd'hui parce que mes jambes étaient très lourdes. Or, vous devez être performant au service si vous voulez gagner sur cette surface."

"je n'étais pas dans de bonnes conditions physiques aujourd'hui, mais je l'ai joué l'année dernière ici et c'était une partie plutôt difficile. Je l'avais battu 7-6, 7-6. Si vous ne jouez pas à 100 pour cent, il est très dur de s’imposer même face à un joueur moins bien classé que vous."


Sebastien Grosjean:"I was a little tired from yesterday's match against Nicolas (Escude). On this surface, it is so fast, you have to be quick and I wasn't today. Physically, I just wasn't there. Raemon (Sluiter) was serving well. I couldn't serve well today because my legs were so tired. You must serve well to win on this surface."

"I wasn't in good shape today, but I played him last year here as well and it was a close match. I beat him 7-6, 7-6. If you aren't playing at 100 percent, it's very tough even if it's against someone lower ranked than you."


I dont get these french ppl!!! they can be playing really well and win like the doubles tourney in marseilles like seb did, and he's won 3 singles matches in a row here, but then say i'm not in very good form...?! and he was really tired from his match against escude but i dunno what happened to 'consistency'? And if he was tired from his match against Escude, that means escude must have been running him around a lot and everything but he was injured!!! its all so confusing

Seb, Ferrero (this is a french forum but everyone here likes him neway right so he still deserves mentions?...:p ) and Escude won't be back until Indian Wells right? well i dont know when ferrero will be back but sebs gonna be in florida until then (shouldn't he wanna play delray beach with arnaud if its in his home town?) and escude's not on any lists before indian wells so nothing's interesting this week (altho santoro is playing dubai), and next week the only interesting thing will be Arnaud :p hmmm...
