In L’Équipe today (it’s the second part of an article, the first part is about Ascione, that’s why it says „he went through the qualies too, he belongs to the team of Nicolas Copin too“, etc.)
Le complexe du « fils de »
Modeste parmi les modestes, Edouard Roger-Vasselin (163e) vient de surclasser 6-2, 6-2 le coriace Argentin Vassalo-Arguello (56e). Lui aussi sort du pays des qualifs, lui aussi est de la bande à Copin, lui aussi revient du fin fond. L’an dernier, une méchante tendinite au genou gauche le coupe du circuit. C’est la dégringolade : 190e en janvier, 436e en août. Le moral tombe avec. « Purée c’était dur… Je suis allé dans des tournois pourraves pour grappiller deux trois points et je suis remonté petit à petit. Mais j’ai vu le fond. »
Comme Ascione, il intègre le Paris Jean-Bouin. Mais le jeune homme de vingt-trois ans a un problème d’un autre ordre à régler. « Il était parfois trop sage. Ce qui l’intéressait, c’était la sécurité : ne pas rater. Il a fallu un peu le secouer », confie Copin. Instinctivement, on pense au complexe du « fils de ». Edouard est l’enfant de Christophe, demi-finaliste à Roland-Garros en 1983. La filiation a certainement pesé. « Je pense que j’ai traîné ça, convient-il. Peut-être que ma tendance à me sous-estimer vient de là. Contre Mathieu au tour suivant, ça va être un bon test. Avant, je me faisais une montagne de presque tous les gars du circuit. Mais ça va mieux. »Il dit cela mais se demande si sa victoire d’hier (sa deuxième sur le grand circuit après celle contre Healey à Shanghai en 2004) n’était pas en fait due à un problème physique de l’Argentin. C’est quand même dur de violenter sa nature.He says how difficult it was last year after his fall in the rankings (#436) because of a tendinitis. He had to play small tournaments to win 2-3 points and really saw „the depths“.
His coach says he sometimes is too moderate, too safe (I don’t know how to translate „sage“ here, sorry). He is afraid to miss. Copin needed to give him a good shake-up.
Being „the son of CRV“ is a factor too, Edouard says maybe that’s why he always tends to underestimate himself. It will be a good test for him against PHM. He used to think every guy on the tour is huge, but he means he’s improving in that regard. (At the same time, he’s wondering if Vassalo-A. was hampered by an injury yesterday, you can feel it’s hard for him to change.)

05-18-2007, 09:13 AM
There is a lot of french player in the top 200.
That's why the WC wasn't an evidence but the results of Edouard this year show that he could play at RG!

05-25-2007, 01:31 PM
What i found on Doud's last name for the GM thread on the meaning of players' names if that happens to be of interest to someone. ;)

Roger-Vasselin : Roger is far too well-known and common internationnaly to deserve any translation. Now Vasselin : It's either the diminutive of a first name of Germanic origins or the diminutive of an old French noun. First option, it would be the Frenchified version of Wazzelin (diminutive of Wazzo, from the Germanic wad- = « gage » in French, guarentee in English??!). Then it would be from the same family than the Picard last names that can be found in the North of France and Belgium Wasselin/Wasselyn. Or it is the diminutive of the old French word « vassel » (current French & as a loanword from French to English : vassal).

Scotso
05-25-2007, 04:23 PM
Qualifiers can be good or bad. At least they're not highly ranked players that have had a lot of success... but they have also just won three matches to make the main draw. It's a tossup.

Hopefully Doud gets one of the easier ones. ;) allez! :rocker2:

CooCooCachoo
05-25-2007, 06:16 PM
The qualifiers all seem pretty tough :eek:

*Sweet4Richard*
05-26-2007, 12:29 AM
I'm still so happy that Edouard is playing Roland Garros. Obviously, a qualifier is going to be tough, but hey, its better than drawing Roger or Rafael first round.

Allez Edouard :woohoo:

I hope Doud doesn't draw Flavio :sad: I would not like that :shout:

BTW the qualifier spot also includes the LL, so he may draw Christophe Rochus if he loses today ;)

Yes a qualifier is always better than a numbert one!
But if Edouard had played Roger in first round, we would have seen it playing, at TV

Doud and Thierry Ascione have also paired up in doubles and face Lukas Dlouhy and Pavel Vizner (seeded 9th) in the 1st round.

Allez :)

As a side note, I know Edouard has played doubles with Dlouhy in the past on the challenger level. They seemed to be pretty good friends when I saw them play two years ago.

I hope you can get a photo soon. I really hate when they put someone on a court where you can't get a photo :o I remember seeing a photo of his girlfriend from two or three years ago. I wonder if its the same one.

Edouard is seeded 3rd at Wimbledon qualies and faces Ti Chen (TPE) in the first round. Allez :yeah:

I was there :woohoo:

I took photos of course :D And one after the match. Eddie is really nice :rocker:

Anyways.. Chen played a heck of a lot better than I expected. Edouard was not playing poorly, but wasn't brilliant either. He needs to play better to qualify, but his draw is good. But thumbs up for Chen, really. Edouard was supported by Haehnel and Ascione in the match.

He is playing Gary Lugassy today, who told me to "take pictures of good boobs" while I was making some photos :tape: :spit:

Edouard choked in the fourth set. He had two set points in a row on his own serve and twice made an unforced error. Healey was playing pretty good tennis, esp. for grass (as was to be expected) and Eddie almost got broken twice in the final set, but he kept fighting and won :D :D :D Emilie Loit was there to support him, and Alize Cornet as well (well, she was playing on the same court after him, so that's why she was there). And I was there of course ;)I was quite vocal :lol: Edouard was really nice :D I hope to see him again in the MD.

Yes you can use it :) No problem. But later I will put watermarks, so then I will ask you to remove it and instead use the one with watermark, if that is OK?

I'm so happy Edouard will play against Richard :) Two of the best french players : it must be a beautiful match !!!
French fans will be surely happy to see this match, but the players will be too. Yesterday Richard has said on french TV he wanted to play Edouard because he's one of his best friends !!!

Awesome! Two straight 3rd rounds in his first two grand slam main draws. And that on two very different surfaces. Very impressive.

Hopefully he keeps it going here! :D allez Edouard! :banana:

Scotso
06-29-2007, 09:44 PM
Eddie lost in straight sets. :sobbing:

Oh well, a 3rd round at RG followed up by a 3rd round at Wimbledon is very, very good for him. And top 100! :D 4 match victories in the first two slam main draws of his career... not too shabby.

He can make it to the challenger now, at least. :p

And I REALLY wish Wimbledon would capitalize the V for Pete's sake.

*Sweet4Richard*
06-30-2007, 02:30 AM
Edouard :bounce:

I've been busy, but I am so thrilled for how Edouard played. I can't even be upset that he lost 3rd round since he lost to Richard. I'm just so happy right now. I love seeing his name in the draw and now reaching top 100 is fabulous. :)

It was so hard supporting him these past few years with injuries and then the ranking sinking so far down, but its great to see him playing well again (even better than before). If he continues like this and plays well in some challengers, he could get his ranking up in the top 75 (hopefully). I'm hoping I get to see him this year in the challenger (I missed him last year :sad: )

Edouard :hug: So proud to be an Edouard fan!!!


Oh and the un-capatalized V is so annoying. Everytime I see his name scroll across the ticker on the bottom of ESPN Roger-vasselin, I want to fix it myself. :mad: :lol:

My support got him through the matches :angel: I was literally the only one supporting him in all his matches. He gave me thumbs up after the wins against Baker and Chela :angel: I only saw one set against Gasquet though, as I had to leave to watch Maria Elena play doubles :sad: I felt so bad having to choose :sad: Anyways, Edouard is great :D He gave me his sweatband or whatever you call it as well, but "only if you come to my next match" (that was after the Baker win) :awww: Edouard :worship:

Anyways, his ranking will skyrocket now. It's so good! He will be in the US Open MD :D :D Gasquet was playing brilliant tennis in the first set, so Eddie has no need to be ashamed. They are good friends too, so it's better to lose to Gasquet than to someone else. And Edouard played really really well against Baker and Chela. Against Ti Chen it wasn't good, and I was worried, but he played so well in the MD :)

Tonight I am going home and I will try to sort my pictures out in the next week :)

He gestured to me like "do you want it?". And I was like.. uhm.. it's kinda pointless, but I nodded :lol:

Yeah, he is very nice :) I also asked him if he'd play Scheveningen during qualies and then he said he might, and the next day when he beat Healey he said "I'm afraid I have bad news for you" with a sad face :lol: :awww: :hug:

Well, I was sad too :sad: Scheduling sucked that day, but Maria Elena, you know, she has priority :shrug:

CooCooCachoo
07-03-2007, 11:40 AM
Wow, great that he recognised you. :lol:

I was pretty loud :p And since no one else at Wimbledon really claps or cheers (for him, at least), it's quite obvious. Against Baker the court was packed and they all clapped for Jamie, whereas I was the only one cheering Edouard on. Against Chela, there were some Chela fans (like 2-3), there was me and there was an uninspired, silent crowd. Oh and during qualies obviously there was little support in general. I am still sad I missed the match against Lugassy though. Qualies are sooo much nicer than MD.

I overheard these groundsmen talking about me when Eddie was warming up against Gasquet, that there was someone shouting Allez quite a lot :lol: :angel: I did :p And other things :p Goooooo Doud :dance:

:sad: I know the problem only too well :sad:

How expensive would it be to go? I reckon Bronx isn't really in your backyard.

It's in New York City. So the problem is not really how far it is, I could probably get there for less than $100. But staying in the city and getting around the city is really expensive.

Plus my financial advisor is an idiot and I lost about $1,000 in my stock funds this last week, so I'm especially hurting right now :p

Edouard :woohoo:

I'm so excited!! I'll be there cheering him on :)

Interesting that he could face Ascione because that's who he beat him in the semifinals here in 2005. Love to see Doud exact some revenge :devil:

I wish I could go! Take pictures for us if you can. And cheer loudly for Doud. :D

Jess (savestheday) is also going to this event, you should look for her. ;)

I wish I was going, too.

Edouard and Thierry play doubles together a lot. Actaully, I was thinking they would play here together, guess not.

I will take tons of photos. They'll probably be terrible, but whatever (my aim is quite bad)! :woohoo:

Edouard is last on Center Court tomorrow (not before 5:30) against Zib! :)

I am guessing they are sharing a room as well. They usually do.

You are so lucky :banana:

Edouard lost 6-3, 6-7, 4-6 :sad:

He served for the match in the second set and he was getting so frustrated in the 2nd/3rd set with some of the linecalls. Hilarious dialogue with the umpire about his name (the entire time the umpire called him Vasselin, but in the 3rd set he started complaining).

Such a shame that he lost, but overall, he played decently enough. He had his chances though but didn't take advantage. :bigcry:
