Well, maybe it's better for Seb to focus on the singles - even though he enjoyed playing with Clément. And yes, ALLEZ SEB!!!!!

Grosjean needs to get this match done and dusted today if possible. Conan does not want him playing two matches tomorrow!

wilma,
Conan talks a lot of nonsense as you may soon discover!

Well I hope he'll do better before and during the French Open. Maybe he just needed an opportunity to rest and this is it.

If he gets anymore rest this year,he'll be unconscious! :eek: ;)

I'm wondering if he's been playing too much golf :eek: :p

LLLLOOOOLLLLL!!!!

Well, golf certainly qualifies as a sleeping drug! Now, what would be a useful, stimulating hobby for Seb to take up, so he'd be at his sharpest during the upcoming tournaments? ;) :p

wilma,
Conan talks a lot of nonsense as you may soon discover!

I'm looking forward to it :p Hmm, I noticed that you are the lucky owner of a "spectacular aura" (those green squares under your name - everyone else seems to be on a "distinguished road"). Impressive!

Lizan

Does he seriously play golf?? I didn't know that!! LOL

Conan's nonsense can be seen in the GM and non-tennis sections!

From his official site:
Quelques nouvelles de Sébastien Grosjean...
Le Français disputait cette semaine le Masters Series de Rome et, après avoir éliminé l’Espagnol Feliciano Lopez 7-5, 6-2, « Seb » a été éliminé au deuxième tour par un autre Espagnol, David Ferrer, 66eme mondial. Ce dernier l’a emporté 6-7, 6-3, 6-2 face à la tête de série numéro 7 du tournoi romain. Le match s’est déroulé en deux actes car interrompu par la pluie mercredi alors que Sébastien menait 7-6, 0-2. Mais, jeudi, le numéro 1 français s’est finalement incliné sur un court annexe « indigne d’un Masters Series. »
« Le court est une patinoire, lui frappe bien en coup droit. Ca ne se joue peut-être pas à grand-chose. Si j’avais fait le break à 3-3 au deuxième set… C’est un problème de confiance et de jeu de jambes, je ne suis pas encore à mon top. Il me reste dix-huit jours à jouer tous les jours sur terre battue. Je pense que ça ira. J’ai fait un quart de finale en 2002 à Roland-Garros en ne jouant qu’un tournoi… », a déclaré « Seb » après son match.
Le Français va maintenant mettre les bouchées double à l’entraînement pour pouvoir bien figurer à Hambourg et Roland-Garros. Avant le grand rendez-vous parisien, « Seb » participera le jeudi 20 mai à la journée caritative organisée au profit de l’association « Set et Match contre l’ataxie » et de l’institut « Marie Curie ». Cela se déroulera au tennis club des Pyramides à Port Marly et Sébastien Grosjean y affrontera notamment Andy Roddick. Retrouvez dès la semaine prochaine une interview de Sébastien...

Some news from Sébastien Grosjean...
Grosjean played at the TMS Rome tournament this week and after beating
Feliciano Lopez 7-5, 6-2, he was defeated by another Spaniard David Ferrer, ranked 66th in the world. The number 7th seed was beaten 6-7, 6-3, 6-2. The match was interrupted by rain with Seb leading 7-6 0-2, but Ferrer came back onto the court and took the advantage. After the match, Seb said the court was ‘not up to the standards of a TMS tournament’.

“The court was like ice, but he hit his forehand really well. I couldn’t do much about it. If I broke at 3-3 in the third set…It was a problem concerning my confidence and I wasn’t moving as well as I would have liked to. I’ve got 18 days left to play on clay. I think it will be ok. I reached the quarters at RG in 2002 and I had only played one tournament (before that)…” Seb said after the match.

The Frenchie will now start training to prepare himself for Hamburg and RG. Before the Parisian tournament, Seb will play a charity organized event on the 20th of May at the
Pyramides Tennis Club at Port Marly, where he will play with Andy Roddick. An interview from Seb to come next week.
