Default Re: Roland Garros

It's stressful to wait for the draw...it's this morning I think. *praying*

Interview yesterday:



"Je suis impatient »

Plus que quelques jours pour Sébastien Grosjean. Le numéro 1 français, qui s’apprête à disputer les Internationaux de France, peaufine actuellement sa préparation et aborde le tournoi de Roland-Garrros sans pression mais avec un grosse motivation.

Comment abordez-vous les Internationaux de France qui débutent dans quelques jours ?
Sereinement. Ça fait 10 jours que je ne rejoue pas trop mal. J’ai eu un mois et demi assez difficile avec un virus, avec des compétitions où j’arrivais en cours de préparation parce que je n’avais pas vraiment la condition physique pour me préparer et puis là, ça va un petit mieux. Je passe plus de temps sur le terrain, ce qui est bon signe, et je suis impatient de commencer le tournoi.


Nourrissez-vous des objectifs particuliers ?
Non. Je n’ai pas vraiment de but. Je veux utiliser ces trois jours qu’il me reste de la meilleure façon, je vais essayer de bien me préparer pour donner le maximum. Les ambitions viendront au fil des matches.

Pour un joueur français, Roland-Garros est un tournoi particulier. Le ressentez-vous ?
Oui, mais ce n‘est pas de la pression, plus de la motivation et du bonheur de pouvoir disputer Roland-Garros devant le public français. Il n’y a aucune pression, plus une envie de bien faire.

N’est-ce pas difficile de débuter Roland-Garros avec peu de repères sur terre battue ?
C’est vrai mais j’ai déjà bien joué à Roland-Garros sans avoir disputer énormément de matches sur terre battue avant. La motivation est là, l’envie de bien faire également. Après, on verra lors des premiers tours. Avec la confiance accumulée avec quelques matches gagnés, on peut espérer un peu mieux.

Les joueurs français, en général, ont, derrière eux, peu de tournoi sur terre avant d’aborder Roland-Garros. Comment expliquez-vous cela ?
Il y a plusieurs raisons, la première et que nous ne disputons pas beaucoup de tournoi. Moi, tous les ans, j’en joue trois, les trois Masters Series. Dans ces tournois, il y a les meilleurs, ce qui fait que l’on peut arriver à Roland-Garros en ayant fait de bons matches mais sans en avoir fait beaucoup. On ne joue pas non plus toute l’année sur cette surface. La préparation hivernale, on la fait sur dur, contrairement aux Espagnols qui privilégient peut-être plus la terre battue et puis, il y a très peu de joueurs français qui vont sur terre battue en Amérique du sud. Pour bien préparer Roland-Garros, il faut jouer les meilleurs joueurs sur terre battue, il faut donc jouer les Masters au mois de mai, après il faut continuer à s’entraîner.

Comment se déroule cette dernière semaine ?
Cette dernière semaine est importante parce qu’on se règle, on peut faire des sets d’entraînement avec tous les joueurs qui ne jouent pas cette semaine. C‘est un test, même s’il n’est pas officiel. Et puis, on sent l’ambiance, la bonne pression arriver, les gens viennent pour assister aux qualifications. C’est important de bien peaufiner cette semaine.

I hope he manages to hold on to that motivation he's talking about (I think), and stays focussed. I hope he will make it at least to 4th round!

I get anxious when it's a qualifier first round because you can't be sure who it's going to be... occasionally there are some very good players returning from injury hidden in the quallies and then there is the fear of playing unknown new players.

Seb won't play tomorrow.. Or I overlooked him, but I don think so.
