Sebastien Grosjean defeated by Rafael Nadal: "I have some regrets because I've had some opportunities in the beginning of the 4th set. I believed in my chances, I tried to be agressive and avoid his forehand. It was not easy with this fresh weather. He took advantage of the wind and the heavy conditions because he's stronger than me. His ball squirts more. The wind disturbed me more than him cos his ball turns more than mine. I also missed more easy points than yesterday, overall in my forehand. I missed several points which made me lose my confidence. He is impressive. He likes to attack his adversary. He's a fighter, he loves competitons and big events. He's the favorite with Federer. About the incident (on sunday), it was strange. I only asked the umpire to come down from his chair. After that, i didn't say anything. The crowd thought he has to do it. The crowd was behind me, and supported me the day of my birthday, it was difficult to calm them down cos they were angry against the umpire. It was also difficult to go back into the match. This tournament was very positive for me. I won three good matches and had a good resistance against one of the favorites. This is encouraging for the coming tournaments. I had pleasure on the court. Physically, I felt good, even against Nadal. I have to go on this way."

Je croyais en mes chances, j'essayais d'être agressif, d'éviter son coup droit.

Le vent m'a gêné plus que lui car sa balle tourne davantage que la mienne. J'ai également raté plus de balles faciles qu'hier, surtout en coup droit. J'ai raté quelques petites balles qui m'ont enlevé de la confiance. Lui est impressionnant. Il aime agresser son adversaire. C'est un "matcheur", il adore la compétition, les grands moments. C'est le favori du tournoi avec Federer. Sur l'arrêt de jeu (dimanche), c'était bizarre. J'ai juste demandé à l'arbitre de descendre de sa chaise. Après, je n'ai rien dit. Le public a pensé que l'arbitre devait le faire. Il était derrière moi, m'a poussé le jour de mon anniversaire, c'était difficile de calmer la foule qui a pris en grippe l'arbitre, difficile aussi de reprendre après. Je tire un bilan positif de mon tournoi. J'ai remporté trois bonnes victoires et offert une belle résistance contre un des favoris. C'est encourageant pour la suite. J'ai pris du plaisir sur le terrain. Physiquement j'ai bien tenu, même contre Nadal j'étais plutôt bien. Je suis également satisfait de mon attitude sur le court. Il faut que je continue dans cette voie là.»

Let's hope Seb'll play as well as he did last year, crystal: finals at Queen's and semi-finals at Wimbledon!!!!!! And let's not forget that the BBC covered each and every one of Seb's matches at Queen's last year Am really looking forward to that.

And yes, Kelly, thank you for reminding us about the nice Sébastien Grosjean we all know and love

Sebastian Grosjean - Day 8
Tuesday, July 1, 2003

S. GROSJEAN/J.C. Ferrero
6-2, 4-6, 7-6, 7-6


Q. At 4-4, there was a double bounce on one of your returns. Can you say what happened at the net.

SEBASTIEN GROSJEAN: At the net when I talked to the umpire, you mean?

Q. Uh-hmm.

SEBASTIEN GROSJEAN: No, I told him it bounced twice, and that's it.

But I was surprised the umpire didn't see, because it was clearly two bounce there.

Re: 2005RG

thanks eek !!
anyway just wanted to precise to some nadal's fan there that I don't mind Nadal, he's a very good player and he seemed very sympathetic when I saw him at Monte Carlo master serie, so I didn't defend seb becoz I hated Rafael, of course not !
I wish him good luck for the rest of the tournament, and i think he deserves to win.
Oh and thanks marine for the anecdotes !
Well, let's concentrate on the grass season !!! Hope seb will play as good as he did in RG. :-)

Re: 2005RG

I read some interviews of Brad Stine these 3 last days and he's a nice guy.
He said he was touched by the support of the crowd at the end of seb's match against stepaneck and on crazy sunday, "one of his greater memories of coach ! "
He said also Seb is on good shape, he can play very very well this year, he's confident etc.. very nice comments which make me happy.
He's funny cos he said to the journalist on sunday evening he was searching bread for seb "my player is french he absolutly needs bread at dinner !" lol
