a slightly amusing commentary of his match against Nishikori :

In the boys’ tournament Alexandre Sidorenko moved through to his first junior grand slam semifinal, courtesy of a well-timed rain delay. Sidorenko, from France, was 2-5 down against Japan’s Kei Nishikori of Japan when the heavens opened. When play resumed, indoors, it was Sidorenko who seized the initiative, eventually winning 46 63 62.

“It wasn’t my day and then the rain helped me. I wasn’t in the match. During the break I spoke to my coach and he just told me to start moving because then my game would come and he was right - I started playing much better,” said Sidorenko. “Yesterday I had a day off and went to the zoo because I’ve never been to Australia before and I wanted to see koalas and kangaroos because you can’t see them in France. I think maybe I had too much time away from tennis and I lost my rhythm.”

Sidorenko admitted that it wasn’t the first time he had benefited from a rain delay – he fought from 1-5 down in the final set on the only previous occasion where the weather had intervened. “I ‘m very lucky with rain delays, every time I get one I am losing and I got and win the match,” he said. “I think I would do well at Wimbledon – it’s my tournament!”

01-27-2006, 03:23 PM
:haha: at the comment about koalas and kangaroos. Good luck to him in the SFs. :yeah:

01-27-2006, 03:38 PM
haha, funny guy :yeah: all the best to him !!!

01-27-2006, 06:07 PM
Thanks Pixie ;)

01-28-2006, 10:02 AM
Alexandre is in the final! :clap2:
He defeated the Russian Chekhov 64 61 and now meets the Australian guy Nick Lindhal for the title!

01-28-2006, 01:36 PM
Allez, Alex! :p

01-28-2006, 01:44 PM
Has someone a picture of Alexandre? I have never seen him play.

Has someone a picture of Alexandre? I have never seen him play.
I have found some on getty images.





He looks a little bit like Stepanek in some pics :tape:

Anyway Good luck in final :worship:

01-28-2006, 03:07 PM
Thanx Julie! :D

(you're right about his Stepanek's likeness... :tape: )

La premiere fois que j'ai entendu parler de lui il devait avoir 8/9 ans, dans tennismag, futur espoir.
Et je l'ai vu chez Delarue aussi il y a un certain temps, c'était sur le thème des enfants champîons etc...je me rappelle juste qu'il a un pere un peu tyrannique et qu'il mange et dort tennis et ne fait rien d'autre, ne voit personne d'autre en dehors. C'était assez effrayant à voir.

01-29-2006, 06:47 AM
He won! :woohoo:

01-29-2006, 07:07 AM
Funny guy. :rolls:

“It’s a bit of a tradition for French players to play well in Australia and I want to keep it going,” said Sidorenko. “I feel very proud to have a chance to join them. I played a final last week at the warm-up tournament at Nottinghill and I was a little nervous, so I hope to learn from that. I have to take the final like it’s a first or a second round match. I have to try to play my game and see what happens.”

For the second day in succession Melbourne Park was hit by a deluge which forced junior singles matches onto the indoor courts but Sidorenko didn’t seem to mind, in fact he said he was delighted to find himself back inside. “Once again I’m very happy about the rain helping me again. I wasn’t playing well in the first set, I was losing in my match and then it rained and we stopped, then we went indoors and I played better,” said Sidorenko. “I will be watching the weather forecast tonight because I hope it rains tomorrow. It’s become like a talisman for me. Maybe I’ll do a rain dance like a Red Indian! If it rains again I might think it’s my destiny to win.”

je trouve au contraire qu'il se donne à fond pour réaliser son rêve !!

j'avais réalisé un mini-site sur alexandre il y a quelques années, il est pas mis à jour du tout :D

Merci, Esther! :D

Article written after the final ;)


Both players were presented with their trophies on court and, in what’s become a tradition for all finalists at the Australian Open, received a cuddly kangaroo as a memento of their success in Melbourne.

“He will be my best friend,” said Sidorenko, with a grin. “Maybe he will be my talisman now.”


01-29-2006, 04:06 PM
There are vidéos of him (interview and a bit of him playing...) in the pages opened by the FFT dedicated to the previous French Junior Championships (Championnats de France Perrier) since he won them quite a few times and they always make a subject/focus on all the winners...;)

02-12-2006, 04:36 AM
Marseille: He faces Henman in singles and in doubles, he and David Guez face Paulo and Gael. :help:

02-13-2006, 11:46 AM
Tim Henman is out, Alex pass directly to the second round. :angel:

02-13-2006, 03:54 PM
Nope, Ronan. :ras:

He faces a LL - probably a French one since 7 out of 8 in the final qualy round are French. :lol:

05-23-2006, 05:24 PM
He beat Uros Vico 6-1 6-4 in the 1st round of RG Qualies :yippee:

06-18-2006, 06:16 PM
Here's one of the pictures I took of him during the final qualifying round against Bozoljac in Roland Garros.


06-19-2006, 02:12 AM
Thanks, Mag!

It seems that he isn't playing Wimby qualies. :scratch: I've no idea where he has been playing after losing at RG. :o

06-19-2006, 10:26 AM
Well, that's strange he doesn't play Wimby qualies...
Maybe he will play the Junior Wimbledon?

06-21-2006, 02:33 PM
he's playing a future (http://www.aajbtennis.com/18.html) in France on clay, according to his itf profil (http://www.itftennis.com/mens/players/activity.asp?player=100036139)

I think it's him in this pic :

others pics are available here (http://www.aajbtennis.com/45.html) or directly here (http://s148750764.onlinehome.fr/2eme_tour/index.html) (#66 to #74) :

Thanks, Ronan! :p

06-21-2006, 05:48 PM
It's my pleasure and your birthday gift :secret:

06-21-2006, 06:09 PM
So stingy? :sobbing:

06-21-2006, 06:17 PM
it's the intention that counts :ras:

06-21-2006, 06:31 PM
Really? ;)

06-22-2006, 01:02 AM
It's my pleasure and your birthday gift :secret:

Oh, it's your birthday SW? I didn't know that!

Happy birthday, dear Silverwhite. ;)

06-22-2006, 08:03 AM

Hi !! here's some pics taken during his match in Roland Garros associated with Jérôme Haehnel (www.jhaehnel.com)

06-22-2006, 04:47 PM

06-25-2006, 05:45 PM
He won the Blois Futures event :yippee:

06-25-2006, 06:11 PM
Good news. :D

And thanks for the pictures, they are beautiful. :)

06-30-2006, 10:03 PM
He's playing Wimby juniors :bounce:

06-30-2006, 10:56 PM
Oh cool! :D
I hope he'll do better than in Roland garros junior... :tape:

07-01-2006, 12:06 AM
If he repeats that performance... :armed:

07-01-2006, 05:01 PM
He lost again. I don't know what to say. :tape:

07-01-2006, 05:03 PM
another french champion :o

07-05-2006, 05:53 PM
His partner and he were the #1 seeds in doubles and lost in the 1st round. :tape:

07-05-2006, 06:02 PM

07-05-2006, 06:02 PM
Seeding doesn't really mean much in juniors, though.

07-05-2006, 06:21 PM
But still, I thought he was pretty competent in doubles. :o

09-11-2006, 10:57 PM
He won the France F12 Futures and is playing in Orleans this week. :bounce:

09-12-2006, 03:06 AM
Congrats Alex :D

10-21-2006, 12:25 PM
He won his first round match in Lyon qualies against Sitak 6-1 6-1 :eek:

10-21-2006, 05:28 PM
He's playing doubles with Olivier Patience in Lyon. They were given a WC but they face PHM and Mahut in the first round :bolt:

10-21-2006, 06:33 PM
He won his first round match in Lyon qualies against Sitak 6-1 6-1 :eek:
Great result !
It was the first time I saw him playing and I was impressed !! :worship:

10-21-2006, 06:37 PM
How did he play? Can we have a small match report (in French if you prefer :p )? Did you watch Eysseric too? :D

10-21-2006, 06:58 PM
I'm going to try in english but... :rolleyes:
Sidorenko played immediately very well ! Sitak couldn't make anything.
(Bon en fait je vais le faire en francais parce que sinon je ne vais jamais m'en sortir ^^). Alexandre prenait toujours le jeu à son compte, il attaquait. Il jouait assez près des lignes mais comme il était en confiance, tout réussissait ou presque. Il a aussi était bien aidé par son adversaire, il faut l'avouer. Sitak faisait vraiment beaucoup d'erreurs et Alexandre n'a pas eu à jouer son meilleur tennis pour gagner. Mais quand même, comme je l'ai dit, j'ai été impressionnée. Il n'a que 18 ans et... :worship:
J'ai aussi vu Eysseric, je voulais absolument le voir ! :) Au début le match était assez serré, les deux jouaient plutot moyennement. Et puis a partir de la fin du premier set, Jonathan a joué de mieux en mieux alors que Kostro faisait de plus en plus de fautes. Tout est allé finalement assez vite et la non plus, Jonathan n'a surement pas eu à jouer son meilleur tennis. Mais il a quand même fait un bon match et j'espère qu'il pourra sortir des qualifs. En plus il est tres sympathique ;)
Désolée de ne pas l'avoir fait en anglais :rolleyes:
(I'm going to the tournament tomorrow, so I'll be able to say more about them :) )

10-21-2006, 07:07 PM
C'est pas grave. Je comprends bien le francais bien que je ne le parle pas bien. :lol:

10-22-2006, 11:32 AM
He beat Balleret 7-6(3) 6-2 :woohoo:

He fired down 16 aces too :eek:

10-22-2006, 02:04 PM
congrats Alex :D

10-22-2006, 03:10 PM
Julien Mathieu is next. He'll qualify for the MD if he beats him. Allez! :bounce:

He lost to Julien Mathieu 7-6(5) ?-? (SB died :o) :sad:

10-27-2006, 11:27 PM
He got a qualy WC for Paris Bercy but his draw is awful. Patience and then Llodra or Fish. :help:

BTW, he was spotted in the crowd during Gasquet vs Safin. He was sitting with Deblicker, Patrice H (I can never get his surname right :o ), Forget and Eysseric (I think). :p

10-28-2006, 06:04 PM
Ooh. Patience pulled out, apparently, so he played Popovic and beat him 6-3 6-4. :D

He will face Micka Llodra next. :scared:

Losing to a veteran on the challenger circuit isn't a shame. The score is. :o

The 16-year-old beat the 18-year-old. C'est la vie. I'm sure they'll play each others a lot in the future and it may not end up with the same result...

Wow! Please make good use of it!

Eschauer in the first round. Certainly far from easy, but it's as good as it gets in a GS MD. Allez! :)

Wow! It could have been much worse! Seize this occasion to learn a darn lot, Alex! :bounce:

Under the eye of his coach Jérôme Potier and his father Valery.



05-28-2007, 04:18 PM
He's playing doubles with Haehnel and mixed with Loit. Emilie is a pretty accomplished doubles player so I'm not sure why she picked him out of all the French guys. :lol:

Severine Bremond FRA/Marc Gicquel FRA vs. Emilie Loit FRA/Alexandre Sidorenko FRA

Jerome Haehnel FRA/Alexandre Sidorenko FRA vs. Marcel Granollers-Pujol ESP/Feliciano Lopez ESP

Maybe he begged her? :lol: Or maybe she doesn't care that much about mixed doubles? :shrug:

So far his match has been stopped 3 times because of the :mad: :fiery: :( rain and now it is 3-6, 4-3, 30-30*...

They both have a hard time holding serve.

05-28-2007, 11:19 PM
I disagree. Alex is having a much harder time holding serve than his opponent. He saved 14/17 BPs (vs 1/3 for Eschauer) though. Good fighting. :yeah:

05-29-2007, 02:52 PM
I was talking about the 2nd set silver. 6-3 3-6 6-3 5-4 Ret. :awww: :sad:

He should have played till the end and let Eschauer win if it wasn't really serious.

05-29-2007, 03:15 PM
Yeah :(

05-29-2007, 03:17 PM
I hadn't realized there was a thread on this in GM :tape:


Alex :o / Injury :o

05-30-2007, 10:50 AM
He hit the chair of the line judge on the point before the MP and injured his ankle, according to L'Équipe. Of course the journalists told him he could have played that last point, he answers he doesn't care about what other people think...

ABANDON DE DERNIÈRE MINUTE... – Abandonner alors qu’on est à
un point de la défaite, forcément, ça fait mauvais genre. Même quand on s’est
tordu la cheville en percutant la chaise du juge de ligne sur le coup précédent.
Mais pour Alexandre Sidorenko, 303e mondial, dix-neuf ans, qui participait à
son premier Roland-Garros grâce à une wild-card, il n’y avait rien d’autre à
faire que d’aller serrer la main de l’arbitre à 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 5-4, avantage pour
l’Autrichien Werner Eschauer. « Jeme suis bien tordu la cheville droite sur une
glissade. J’ai appelé le kiné, mais je ne pouvais même plus marcher. Ça ne
servait à rien de continuer. » Et quand on lui fait remarquer que disputer ce
dernier point aurait peut-être été mieux perçu, le Français réplique : « Je ne
pense pas aux avis extérieurs. » Plus de trois heures de jeu, étalées sur deux
jours, pour en arriver là...

What was he thinking, really? I thought it was some freaky injury when I saw the scoreboard yesterday, like Pierce or PHM rolling around on the ground in pain...

06-01-2007, 05:46 PM
Loit and Alex lost 6-4 5-7 1-0(7) to Marc Gicquel and Séverine Brémond. :tape:

06-01-2007, 06:58 PM

03-22-2008, 05:37 PM
I don't know what happened during these first mounths
Last week Sacha played a tournament in France. He reached the final where he lost to Devilder in 3 sets, though a day earlier he managed to beat Patience who was the first seeded. He sounded positive and, it seems, have fully recovered from his injuries. I have a scan of a short article about him, if someone is interested I can try to post it here.

03-23-2008, 02:58 PM
I'm interessed ;)

But I don't see what tournament you are talking about !? :s ( last week he played in Egypt and before it was qualifications of Besancon .. )

03-23-2008, 06:22 PM
But Besançon was quite a while ago, isn't it? ;)

It was a CNGT tournament in Valenciennes. He was 8th seeded so he didn't need to qualify and played only main draw matches (March 14-16th). You can check the draw itself here (http://www.fft.fr/FFT/pdf_n/cngt_pdf2008/valenciennes_M08.pdf).

La jeunesse devra encore patienter un peu.
Mathilde Johansson et Alexandre Sidorenko, les deux jeunots des finales, devront encore attendre pour inscrire leur nom au palmarès de l’open international de Valenciennes.
Alexandre Sidorenko, vainqueur de l’Open d’Australie junior en 2006, perdu dans le classement mondial après des blessures à répétition (n° 350), a ainsi vite oublié sa défaite en finale ici. « Quatre matches en deux jours, ça faisait longtemps que ça ne m’était pas arrivé », souligne l’un des espoirs du tennis français. « Ça tire un peu maintenant, mais ça va m’aider, notamment pour la confiance. »
Car lui aussi a vu sa confiance monter en flèche dans le Hainaut. Il se voit même intégrer le top 100 avant Roland Garros. « Je suis loin, mais ça peut aller vite en gagnant des tournois. Mon jeu est là, il faut encore que je sois plus régulier et que je m’appuie sur une meilleure première balle. » (par Philippe Guilbaud, La Voix des Sports du 17 mars 2008)

Good that he is so confident and has high ambitions.

03-24-2008, 02:18 PM
Thank you very much
I 've never heard of it beafore so thanks

Where wan be find the CNGT tournaments on the net ?

I believe this tournament gave him confident, the results are here ( Cairo )

03-25-2008, 07:57 PM
You're welcome. You can find all the info (not so much though :rolleyes: ) on CNGT tournaments on the FFT page: http://www.fft.fr/cms-fft/?id=1389.

Sidorenko, le rescapé

Freiné par une succession de blessures l'an passé, Alexandre Sidorenko, 20 ans, a repris sa progression en remportant l'Open Espace Anjou. Non sans avoir écarté deux balles de titre contre Sébastien de Chaunac !

"BONHEUR". "Cette victoire est vraiment un énorme bonheur après deux années sans gagner de tournoi. La joie est encore plus grande de l'avoir fait en sauvant deux balles de match en finale. C'est une grande satisfaction, une grande récompense pour tout le travail que j'ai accompli malgré les blessures." Alexandre Sidorenko a savouré son succès sur les courts couverts en terre battue de l'Angers TC. Impeccable jusqu'en finale (une moyenne de cinq jeux perdus en quatre matchs), "Sacha", 351e, 20 ans depuis le 18 février, y a lutté comme un beau diable pour se défaire de Sébastien de Chaunac, 30 ans, 307e.

ET DE TROIS. "J'ai eu beaucoup d'occasions, notamment six balles de premier set, a expliqué Sidorenko, qui est entraîné par son père Valery. Ça ne s'est joué à rien. Mais j'ai été plus opportuniste, plus agressif dans les moments décisifs." Victorieux 6/7(7), 6/2, 7/6(5) en 2h54, le Français natif de Saint-Pétersbourg a remporté son troisième titre "pro" après Blois en juillet 2006 et Bagnères-de-Bigorre en septembre 2006.

OBJECTIF TOP 100. "Janvier et février ont été très difficiles, s'est rappelé le vainqueur de l'Open d'Australie juniors 2006. L'an passé, pour ma première saison pleine sur le circuit, je n'ai pas été épargné par les blessures (trois entorses de la cheville, une fracture du pouce, une déchirure au coude). Depuis un mois et demi, je rejoue très bien. Là, j'ai eu de très bonnes sensations. Je veux continuer sur ma lancée et rentrer dans le top 100 le plus vite possible."

It's amazing i'm really happy about this victory:worship:

Since nobody told it.Alexandre is spending his off season preparation organized by the fft in Saint Cyprien(south of France) with others players such as tsonga,simon,chardy,serra...

Can be good for him like it was for jo and gilles who reached the top10 now.
Alexandre had many injuries like Jo so he can learn from him.

Good luck to him in 2009.:)

06-07-2009, 12:47 AM
No one posted any news.:eek:


Alex has great results this year in Challengers.
He has his best single ranking : 145

And he had a WC in Roland Garros, but had to play against Marat Safin, and lost 6/4 6/4 6/4.

This week, he was in Furth.

Wow, he reached the quarters of an atp tournament for the first time, beat an almost top 50 player, almost beat a top 50, and all that with his eyes closed? He is truly a phenomenon!

05-03-2010, 12:20 PM
He qualifies for Munich! It seems that the German air does wonders for his game :rolls:

05-07-2010, 06:26 PM
I saw him in qualies in Munich, he was playing pretty well, I was expecting him to do better against Hajek. His match against Kindlmann was my favourite match of the qualies.
Ascione and Robert were watching and cheering hard for him.
Who is his coach? Another face I couldn't put a name to anymore. He's the one who gave me the information about Devilder (the man sitting next to Ascione in my pic). He seems to work hard, he was on the practice courts again immediately after his last qualies match.

05-07-2010, 06:53 PM
Who is his coach? Another face I couldn't put a name to anymore. He's the one who gave me the information about Devilder (the man sitting next to Ascione in my pic)
Alex left FFT under one month, i remember that Llodra began to work with Remy Barbarrin because Laurent Raymond was working with Sidorenko also so what's happen with Raymond he coaches again Ouanna & Recouderc with Potier ? Anyway the new coach of Alex is Didier Lanne who have a blog where he writes everything :eek: http://www.didierlanne.com/ He wil play Madrid qualies.

05-07-2010, 07:48 PM
Thanks! I knew he was familiar, but I just couldn't remember where I had seen him.
I hadn't seen all the last entries, it's impressive indeed! (J'en étais restée à l'entrée où il parle des raisons pour lesquelles il a arrêté de travailler avec Balleret, ça m'a fait grincer des dents qu'il raconte comme ça des choses que lui confient ses joueurs.)

05-08-2010, 02:33 AM
Madrid qualies? Wow. That's ambitious. :eek:
