Hi you guys, I'm kind of new here but I've read your messages for a over a month or 3. My english is not very good, but I'm trying very hard. I'm a huge fan of SEB. Unfortunatly I don't get to see much of him play, because on the teli in Holland they don't air tennis that much.
Esther (it's your name right?) I got a question 4 u.. Do u really think his wife isn't really good for him to come back to that?? Cause you said so.. I think it's really sad 4 him then.. A wife who does not really support him. I know I would do better ;)
Anyway I hope that Seb will not feel his elbow much the next couple of weeks, cause that would be awful.

HI Lizan,I'm Valeria! Welcome here! :) Dont worry for your english,it's fine!we are happy to have one more person to write here so please keep it going!
about SEb's wife if I can give my opinion...well,she's definetely UGLY and older than him,of course he could find a better,cuter one and maybe also a more supportive one but but...she cant follow seb in any tourney cos of the kids;Tom is just 1 and u know a so young boy cant travel that much.anyway if Seb is happy with her and they love each other,I'm happy for them.

umm i'm a little unsure on what your question is exactly, but after reading that interview he did after Wimbledon a few weeks ago in Lequipe mag...the way he talked about his wife was really really touching- he sounded completely in love with her!!! i do change my mind more than i should but yeah i'm not sure if you saw that interview but i yeah he says that she's just so important to him and she brings him back to reality and away from tennis when he needs to be and tennis is nothing when he's with his family and i mean for someone whos in the tennis world and is at the top i think thats really amazing of him to have said so yeah. my point is ....lol i think he obviously loves her more than anything so it's his life and who are we to say she's not good for him when obviously they are married and very very happy!!!

hey! welcome to the forum!
i still wanna see a pic of his wife... i have no idea how she looks at all!!! i dont get to see him play much here in the US either... the coverage sucks. i just got back from going to cincy not too long ago but i went second and third round so i couldnt see seb at all :sad:

hmm i think we can attach files again can we?? but i cant seem to find the pic of his wife....i'll try and find it tomorrow and post it

k thanx! :)

hi, sorry I was away so long (computer problems). thanx 4 answering.. It's not that I'm so interested in his private life, I just wanted to know if he's happy :) and I guess he is.
So now on to US open.. yeah finally. I must say though that it is the last slam that I like. It's 6 hours earlier in America so the program starts at 16:00 pm here. Anyway what do you guys think, will Seb go all the way to at least semies? I think when he get's there it is a good performance. Trophe is better of course!!
By the way how do you get a picture with your name as you all have??
08-20-2003, 11:53 PM
i'll post the lequipe article for you lizan so you can see what he said...so very sweet!!!! and he sounded totally in love and happy and keeps saying nothing compares to the time that he spends with her and his family.
have doubts about how USO will go taking into account the last couple of tournaments...:S i think his elbow will give him problems and i think i'll be happy if he gets to fourth round. he also said in that interview i was talking about that he thinks/wants to win this USO...shouldnt have said that i dont think!!! jinx...
to get the picture with your name (avatar) you go to user CP then options i think and you can get an avatar from the list or another pic of your choice from your own computer....

i dunno if he will make the semis with the draw he got. he has a pretty tough quarter but i'll be glad if he did! :)
08-21-2003, 12:44 AM
hmm seb,arnaud,coria and jc are all in the same quarter!!!! not not good not good at all

Just wanted to say "hoi" to Lizan, ik ben ook Nederlands en net als jij groot fan van Seb... well duh, de naam zegt het al toch...
I really don't think it's up to us to judge Seb's relationship with his wife. Seeing that he has two kids with her must tell us something though ;) And maybe he likes to keep his private life seperate from his career. I remember Sampras' parents never came to his matches until he won his 7th Wimbledon title. Ofcourse his wife did come but that after years of going solo. And I don't think Tom is the problem because he is still so young. But I bet they want to have a normal homelife for Lola when she goes to school and stuff. Anyways whatever, as long as they're happy it's cool with me.
08-22-2003, 08:23 AM
yeah completely agree with that judging wifey thing...im' still a little confused about what your question in the first place was Lizan? was it just a question about his wife or asking me about something i had said before?
08-22-2003, 12:05 PM
for the dutch. Cool dat er nog een nederlander (se) is die grosjean zo goed vind.
Esther, A couple of months ago you talked about his wife and it was kind of funny (you know how you or someone else said she was ugly and all that).. Now I just wanted to know if he was happy that's all.. But I guess you know as much as I do so it was a stupid question anyway.
So to say it again, it's not that I'm so interested in his private life I just wanted to know if he's happy so that he can play good!!
So Esther don't mind about my question, it isn't important!
08-23-2003, 02:16 AM
i dont think it was me that was saying she was really ugly and stuff...me and vale have had this conversation many times lol and i just thought it was really strange that theres such a huge age gap (8 years) but i dont think i ever said she was a bad wife or nething like that
newayz hope thats cleared up! hehe and i think we all know now that she obivoisuly means the world to him and he's happiest when he's not playing tennis...lol...!
