L'Equipe: Today

Grosjean en minuscules


Le Marseillais, convalescent, a choisi un « petit » tournoi en France pour tester à nouveau son épaule opérée.


UNE AUBAINE pour le tournoi d’Orléans. Sébastien Grosjean, ancienne star du sport français, faisait avant-hier la une des sports du journal local. Popularité patinée par les ans. Lundi, l’intéressé racontait tranquillement ses sensations du moment face à un maigre parterre de journalistes. « Peu d’interviews, comme ça on peut les faire plus tranquille », constatait l’intéressé, décontracté. Mais le Marseillais n’est pas venu au pays de Jeanne d’Arc pour relire à l’ombre une page de l’histoire de France. Les circonstances l’ont poussé à faire cette rare incursion en Deuxième Division. Propulsé dans le top 100 mondial en février 1999, à vingt ans, par une fulgurante accélération au tournoi de Miami (finale, après avoir battu notamment Carlos Moya, numéro 1 mondial, et en étant sorti des qualifications), Grosjean n’a pas joué le dixième des matches de sa carrière pro en Challengers : exactement 59 contre 582 sur le circuit principal. Très vite au sommet, il n’en est redescendu que l’an passé par la faute d’une épaule qui le força à se faire opérér en décembre 2008. Six mois auparavant, après avoir abandonné au deuxième tour au Queen’s et à Wimbledon, il avait enchaîné quatre défaites au premier tour. L’opération paraissait imminente, mais après deux mois d’arrêt, il s’aligna à Lyon avec le risque de plomber son futur classement protégé. « Je sais, racontait-il lundi. Mais j’étais tenant du titre en simple et en double. J’avais envie de jouer. » Il cala dès le premier tour malgré deux heures un quart de match. Voilà pourquoi il a dû entamer son come-back post-opératoire, en juin dernier, avec un classement protégé de 170e. « Bon, j’aurais été 90e sans mon incursion à Lyon, plaide-t-il. Ça ne change pas grand-chose. J’aurais pu sans doute jouer à Stockholm ou Moscou cette semaine, et alors ?... Je ne suis pas mécontent de rester en France pour pouvoir enchaîner avec Lyon la semaine prochaine. Et puis jouer à l’étranger, ça aurait pu être un peu trop dur, quoique, avec le tirage que j’ai ici, je me demande... » Il a en effet hérité pour aujourd’hui d’un premier tour costaud avec un Thierry Ascione débarrassé de ses pépins physiques.


Eau noire à Bratislava


Y ayant peu goûté, Grosjean n’est pas allergique au circuit Challenger. Surtout quand le directeur du tournoi est une vieille connaissance : « Didier Gérard a longtemps travaillé chez mon équipementier en raquettes, confesse-t-il. Les Challengers sont souvent très bien organisés en France. Bien sûr, il manque ici un court d’entraînement, mais à part ça, je n’ai que des compliments à faire. » Un public maigrichon le lundi ? « C’est pareil sur les "Grands Prix" (appellation usuelle des joueurs pour les ATP 250 et 500), rétorque-t-il.

Grosjean n’a que des bons souvenirs du purgatoire. D’abord bien sûr la mise à feu de son exploit de Miami. « J’avais enchaîné le titre au Challengers de Cherbourg, une demi-finale à Copenhague et la finale à Key Biscayne (Miami) », se souvient-il. Il n’a pas oublié non plus son autre titre en Challenger (pour trois finales perdues). Mais pour une autre raison : « C’était à Bratislava (en 1997), on jouait dans un petit club plutôt sympa d’où étaient sortis, je crois, Mecir et Hrbaty, mais l’hôtel ressemblait à un dortoir et l’eau était noire. Avec Bernard (Fritz, son entraîneur d’alors, redevenu actuel), on a préféré se payer un autre hôtel. » Mais il entend bien refermer pas plus tard que cette semaine son album de souvenirs. Même s’il n’a pas l’impression de déchoir en jouant aujourd’hui à ce niveau, il avoue : « Je ne me vois certes pas refaire la même chose dans un an. » À trente et un ans, la case Challenger peut vite ressembler au puits du jeu de l’oie.

Some littles questions on the official website

Sébastien GROSJEAN en quelques mots

21/10/2009 - 19:16
Ton style de musique ? VARIETES FRANCAISES
Ton film préféré ? HEAT (avec De Niro)
Ton site internet préféré ? lequipe.fr / OM.net
Quel joueur a motivé ta carrière ? LA COUPE DAVIS
Ton meilleur ami sur le circuit ? ARNAUD CLEMENT
Le pays qui t’a le plus marqué ? L'AUSTRALIE
Nadal ou Federer ? FEDERER
Sharapova ou Ivanovic ? IVANOVIC
« Le » match de ta carrière ? CONTRE AGASSI EN ¼ ROLAND GARROS 2001
Un dernier mot pour la route ? A BIENTOT

And the video of post match interview http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xav...m=rssundefined

He's quite happy of his serve but he has not a lot of sensations on court.

When we read him and listen him. The WC for Lyon seems OK.

Agree 100%! It's been so long since Seb has had a run of good luck/health.

Fingers crossed for him.

Yes something positiv and in Lyon his double partner will be his best friend Arno where they has drawn the seed 2. Seb vs Kiefer in single it looks like we were in the early 2000's

OMG!!

They haven't played since Seb trounced Kiefer in Davis Cup in 2006...and that was only a week or so after their, er, infamous Australian Open encounter. Wish he'd drawn someone else.

Seb plays in third position on the central court, not before 4 P.M. And he will play his double with Nono not before 7 P.M on the court 1
