Average draw, but I don't expect Seb to do well regardless. :sad:

All we can wish is that he wins his first match and doesn't retire... :sad:

Starace isn't a grass specialist at all I think. But it doesn't mean that much, the most important is seb's form... and he's not good.
I don't expect anything.
A win would be fantastic...

Ohhh good luck Seb!:wavey:

I heard that Starace was involved in some tennis betting scandals. But... maybe just scandals...

Anyway, good luck Seb! I hope he would be able to play his best tennis here and NO MORE INJURY AGAIN! :angel:

Allez sexy Seb!

It was a winnable match for Sebastien, but I was a bit worried about how the injury(ies) would hold up. Gasquet or Fish up next, one would expect Seb to lose to either but he can always surprise us. ;)

straight sets win :eek: :eek: 8 aces and only 9 UEs, 86% 1st serve winning, it seems Seb played a really good match! :yeah: :woohoo:

Allez Seb :bounce: Good luck to the next round! :woohoo:

Oh he played without his cap again - so is that a new style now?!

Anyway it's so great that he is fine again! Best of luck against Gasquet, Seb has not a bad H2H vs him.

And one more picture from his match :)

I like him much more without the cap! And also like that hairstyle, not too short and not too long, just his traditional "I-just-woke-up" hairstyle :D Although I've always been a fan of his longer hair...

He tried! Anyone see those two points where he put so much spin on the ball, it bounced back on to his own side of the net!?

So why the retirement?:unsure:

Didn't see those points as ESPN didn't play it; however, it was on ESPN360, so IF IF IF I have time, I'll try to watch it and then screen cap some pics for you!

edit: ESPN keeps the matches available for a few days...

They wrote on Eurosport website it was a shot of the day :worship: But no video :(

As I got it from his interview on FFT page, Seb says he played well, he felt well the ball and could control it. But he had troubles moving around, wasn't too quick and so had no chances against a top player. In the first round he could make a good match because his rival wasn't so quick on grass, but against Gasquet is was too hard.

Anyway he seems to be pretty optimistic and his motivation is always there.

He tells it's still a bit painful for him to serve but he's working on it. As for his thigh that has bothered him lately, Seb says it just requires a good rest - without playing too much.

We believe in you Seb :hug:

He is in the QF, needs to beat Rainer Schuettler to enter the SF, so he hasn't been there yet, at least not so far :lol: damn the match is so close and it's in end of the 5th set yet but stopped by rain delay.
