Magic (fabulous, pure talent...) JRL - Jean RenÚ Lisnard thread
 
So far, as for freemasons, being a Lisnardaire had to be a secret. Rules are made to be broken. This is why this thread is gonna be created. Let's share our passion for the great guy !


Jean RenÚ is born in 1979 in Cannes, France and became a Monegasque few years ago.
Rumors says he was in a list along with Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Greg Rusedski, Yuri Schukin and Alexandros-Ferdinandos Georgoudas.
The Prince Albert II chose him to represent Monaco and never regretted it.

As you know, he accumulates wins over many GOATs (this includes ex-GOATs, future GOATs, wannabe-GOATs etc...):


- Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan (Beat them both.... alone, you can check)
- Davide Sanguinetti
- Alberto Berasategui
- James Blake
- Paul Henri Mathieu
- Justin Gimelstob
- Vladimir Voltchkov
- Gustavo Marcaccio
- Robin Soderling
- Lars Burgsmuller
- Marcelo Rios
- Rainer Schuettler
- Richard Gasquet
- Martin Verkerk
- Gaston Gaudio (with a bagel, on clay in 2003)
- Stanislas Wawrinka (in Gstaad)
- Magnus Norman
- Tomas Berdych
- Misha Zverev (on Clay !!!!!!!! )
- Julian Knowle and Jurgen Melzer (once again he did not need a partner)
- Sebastien Grosjean
- Thomas Johansson
- Oscar Hernandez (at Wimbledon :eek:)
- Gilles Simon
- Paradorn Srichaphan
- Andy Murray
- Nicolas Coutelot
- Nikolay Davydenko
- Donald Young....

And many more to come....

Other great accomplishments:

- took 1 game of in-form Agassi (Los Angeles 2005)
- took a set of Safin (RG 2008)
- 6 consecutive years with Monte-Carlo AMS wild-card (2006 not counted)
Wins over:
- Vinciguerra
- Volandri x2
- Llodra
- Rochus`s X3
- Malisse
- Davydenko
- Carlsen
- Don Young

But his win over Hernandez on grass sums up his legendary career :worship:

I somehow missed his win against Davydenko. I will add it as well as the one against Young. :)

Oh, I was always going through MTF looking for a thread like this one :confused: And here it is :banana:

The star gossip is that JRL was brought up on the red carpet of Cannes there for he was just destined to be a star...

Know ho used to be a Lisnard admirer some time ago?

derossi :yeah:

He was supporting him at every tournament in 2008, writing stuff like he used to write about Saretta :cool:

I'm not entering the F˙ria community anymore so I don't know if he's still doing it.

you should've made the poll public, so it reveals c. rochus' MTF account when he votes.

Nathaliia 05-01-2009 08:39 PM

Re: Magic (fabulous, pure talent...) JRL - Jean RenÚ Lisnard thread
 
derossi knows his stuff.... even though I think he smokes so much :smoke:

C. Rochus already voted

Another career highlight i forgot:
He beats Konstantinos Economidis(171,0.40) (GRE) 2-6 4-6 7-6(4) 6-0 6-0 last year in Davis cup.

Career DC record: 7W/2L
One of his two losses was by retirement against Ernest Gulbis, so it does not really count.
Lisnard, greatest DC player of all time ?
