Hello, I am new and I announce you that Sebastien won't be Top Seed at the US Open Grand Slam.
Only 13. Richard Gasquet is Top seed for France

Seb is 35th at the ATP entry Ranking. If a man before him in the classment had to withdraw, Seb would be the last Top Seed in the tournament.

Well done Seb!

Marine

Yes, well done. Just a pity I coudn't see his match eurosport prefered to show us Monfils.

Well, Seb said he wants to go far in the tournament... lol
(the contrary would have surprised me ! lol)

And Seb plays IN DOUBLE !!!!!!! With Arnaud !!!!!! :woohoo:
He hasn't been playing in double (in gc) since 2001.
But they play Bryan twins at first round :(

Well done, Seb! A 2nd round win will mean he's equalled his best performance at the US Open :)
Seb & Arnaud are playing later today. Let's hope they can cause an upset :p (am not counting on it, though)

GROSJEAN, L’OPPORTUNISTE. – Opposé à l’Espagnol Oscar Hernandez, 78e mondial, Sébastien Grosjean avait tiré le bon numéro : il affrontait en effet un joueur qui n’avait disputé cette saison que deux matches – perdus – ailleurs que sur terre battue et à chaque fois en Grand Chelem (Open d’Australie et Wimbledon). Mieux, Hernandez, lifteur longiligne doté d’un beau revers à une main, était encore à Genève samedi, pour y disputer, sur sa surface préférée, une demi-finale dans un tournoi Challenger. Dans ces conditions, les débuts de Grosjean à Flushing Meadows ne furent qu’une simple formalité : 6-2, 6-3, 6-2. « Il devait avoir un billet d’avion aller-retour bloqué ! » , plaisantait le Marseillais. Privé de son habituel statut de tête de série, une première depuis l’US Open 2000, celui-ci ne semblait pas en prendre ombrage. « Ça ne change pas ma vie, seulement mon tableau. Même si on est protégé en tant que tête de série, on n’est jamais à l’abri d’un premier tour contre des mecs comme Karlovic ou Blake qui ne le sont pas non plus… A trois heures près, j’aurais pu l’être si Marat (Safin) s’était retiré plus tôt. »

Qu’importe, il attaque cet US Open dans les meilleures conditions. « Je suis sans doute plus frais mentalement et physiquement. J’ai bien coupé après Wimbledon pendant dix jours à Marseille. Même si j’ai eu une angine et une gastro, j’en ai bien profité. Je n’ai pas gagné beaucoup de matches cet été, mais j’ai bien joué. » Et la douleur à la cheville qui le gênait à Cincinnati n’est plus qu’un vieux souvenir…


ahh seb and holiday...his favorite activity (ughh me too ! lol)

Well done Seb! :clap2: Next competitor is Tommy. :bigcry: H2h 1-3.But Seb won in straight sets once on Hard Court while Tommy won all matches on clay. :aplot: I hate Tommy to beat Guga but I like him too, :o;) but I consider he can't beat Nadal,I cheer for Seb more a bit! :aplot: Allez! :rocker2:

We just saw some games of the third set here, obviously not the best part of the match for Seb since he lost this set and still, he played quite well. Seb really is a joy to watch when he plays like this. :yeah:
I'm so happy about this win, I'm surprised nobody cares about this match in the "GM"-section because it was one of the best performances yesterday imo. :confused:

eek

I saw Sebs match yesterday, and he played very well.. When he keeps on playing like this, it will be a very interesting tournament :).. Go Seb
Also liked his outfit very much!!!!!!! looks really great!!

Alison

Didn't see any of the match , but I did follow it on the scoreboard and webcam . Well done again Seb :D

The only match we got was repeated showings of Robredo's match ; the day before was even worse : repeats of Dent's match :rolleyes:

I hope we get to see Arnaud's match against Murray ; strangely enough it's not been mentioned in the press here about his last match :p :eek: ;)

He lost 4-6 5-7 7-6 6-7 against robredo. :sad: I couldn't see him play against Robredo but I heard he didn't serve very well...

I had seen his match again Johansson and he played amazing tennis and that's why I was very optimistic about his third round.

hehe yeah on eurosport it was.. They never show his whole match, but at least they showed some.. But I think I saw more then you did though, I remember seeing more of that match..

Sooooooooooooooooo sad that he lost to Robredo, I taped it last night, and watched it back this morning without seeing the scores, and I was very happy to see that they showed a little piece of the match, but in a very very very bad mood after seeing it :sad:.. He played very well though, but Julie was right, bad first serve.. I dont understand why he cant play well at the USOpen

The stats ain't bad. At least Tommy didn't win in a 6-3, 6-3 relief. Aha well done Seb!
And what's next tournament?


Oh Radical girl you are from HONG KONG as well?
My first time to see a HKer here! (coz I dunn come here often?)

I guess we have to be glad to see him at all :p

I was disappointed Seb didn't get beyond 3rd round. Well, let's hope his season ends better than it did in previous years.

the loss to tommy even though it wasn't really that surprising made me sad. i realized during this uso just how much i miss seb. clearly he's still there but i miss the days when he was a top 10 player, he's such a fun player that i love rooting for and i miss having him at the top where he deserves to be. he's my second favorite player and i miss seeing and reading more about him etc. :hug: come on seb get your butt in gear you don't want one of your fans to be sad do you? :p
