In L'Equipe today:
Quote:
Avant les trois coups
Gilles Simon fait son retour aujourd’hui à Marseille face à Olivier Rochus. Nous l’avons suivi lors de ses derniers jours de préparation.

HANDICAPÉ PAR UNE LÉSION au tendon sous-rotulien qui l’avait obligé à stopper la compétition juste après Bercy, le 12 novembre, Gilles Simon n’avait repris l’entraînement pour l’Open d’Australie que le 1er janvier. Mais la lutte contre le temps était perdue d’avance. Le 16, à Melbourne, le Français renonçait à disputer le premier Grand Chelem de l’année. Une deuxième course contre la montre débutait…
LUNDI 1er FÉVRIER. – Simon retouche enfin la raquette. Depuis son forfait à l’Open d’Australie, son menu quotidien était soins et muscu. Sur un court du Centre national d’entraînement, il tape mais sans forcer : les balles lui arrivent dans l’axe ou dans une zone préétablie par son coach, Thierry Tulasne. Les cadences ne sont pas plus infernales : en trois jours, Simon passera de trois quarts d’heure à une heure par jour. On y va mollo. Le mot d’ordre est respecté.
JEUDI 4 FÉVRIER. – Chaque matin, avant son atelier tennis, le Français vit un moment particulier grâce à ConTrex – une machine qui lui permet de fortifier son genou. Et, accessoirement, de lui booster le moral. « Je travaille environ quarante-cinq minutes, raconte-t-il. Vingt minutes par jambe. Le truc, c’est que je fais toujours le même mouvement. Donc, impossible de me blesser. Je travaille sur la machine deux jours sur trois. Entre-temps, un jour de repos. Mais c’est fou comme je sens à quel point ça me fait du bien. La machine me rassure. Je prends confiance. » Ce jeudi, Simon commence à faire l’essuie-glaces droite-gauche sur sa ligne de fond. Il va progressivement recommencer à jouer des points. Mais sans jamais servir ni relancer.
LUNDI 8 FÉVRIER. – Le programme de reprise est jusqu’alors respecté à la lettre. On décide donc d’augmenter la cadence. Simon dispute ses premiers points du fond, cette fois en servant et en retournant (presque) normalement. Le soir, il passera une échographie. Bingo ! tout va bien. « Ça m’encourage à poursuivre sur le mêmetempo, dit-il. De toute façon, je me sens beaucoup mieux qu’à la première reprise d’entraînement, début janvier. Je pose ma jambe sans arrière-pensée et sans jamais compenser. L’avantage, c’est que je peux monter en intensité. » Il ne s’en prive pas : face àNicolas Mahut, il pousse la séance jusqu’à deux heures. La dernière demi-heure est consacrée au retour.
MERCREDI 10 FÉVRIER. – Petite pause dans l’enchaînement des journées : fiévreux, Simon ne force pas et réduit sa séance. « Pas mal de gens ont chopé une gastro dans mon entourage, explique-t-il. Je suis un peu patraque, j’ai un peu mal au ventre, un peu mal à la tête… Je me sens anormalement fatigué. » A-t-il au moins utilisé le thermomètre ? Le niet fuse, ferme et définitif : « Je refuse de tomber malade. » M’enfin, Gilles… « Je ne changerai pas mon planning. Ce n’est pas ma santé que je teste durant ces deux semaines, c’est mon genou. » Dont acte.
VENDREDI 12 FÉVRIER. – La veille, il a reçu le feu vert du « doc ». Il pèse lourd, tant le docteur Montalvan, médecin de la Fédération, est connu pour prêcher systématiquement la prudence. Le matin, Simon s’était livré à fond contre Laurent Recouderc, au point de remporter son premier match d’entraînement 6-4, 6-3. Le lendemain, il récidive face à Josselin Ouanna, battu 6-4, 6-3. Tous les voyants sont au vert. Simon prend sa décision : il jouera Marseille. « Gilles a tellement envie de reprendre et le doc était tellement satisfait des derniers examens qu’il n’y avait aucune raison de s’en priver » , résume Tulasne. Le lendemain, le binôme rejoint Marseille.
SAMEDI 13 FÉVRIER. – Encore un petit set d’entraînement en matinée à Roland-Garros (6-3 contre Rufin) suivi d’un peu de travail au panier, puis le TGV de 15 heures, direction Marseille. Le soir, room service, « afin que Gilles reprenne ses repères en tournoi », souligne le coach.
LUNDI 15 FÉVRIER. – Après un dimanche où « Gilles a eu droit à sa première grasse “ mat” depuis la reprise (grasse mat = petit dej à 10 h 30), avant qu’on aille prendre les marques sur le central du palais des sports, en jouant trois quarts d’heure avec Arnaud Clément puis trois autres avec Mika Llodra », il s’est agi hier de taper la balle une autre heure et demie, avec le Russe Stakhovsky. « Gilles sent vraiment très bien la balle. Les autres entraîneurs l’ont tous trouvé très en forme. Et je ne l’ai jamais vu avec une telle fraîcheur mentale et une telle envie dejouer. Il a tout le temps le sourire. »
VINCENT COGNET (avec J. Re.)
Sorry, I'm a bit late today, I can't make a summary right now.

Default Re: Welcome back Gilles ~ Marseille ~ European indoor season 2010

The summary of the article in L'Equipe with the description of the last 2 weeks, it really goes in great detail!

01.02: he eventually picks up the racquet. The first trainings are very soft, in one part of the court only, Tulasne just plays the ball to him. He plays 45 minutes a day, 1 hour after 3 days...
Before each training session he spends 45 minutes working on his knee with a special machine, ConTrex, incredibly helpful, it's reassuring for him and it gives him confidence.

04.02: he starts running right-left-right again on the court, but no serves and no returns yet.

08.02 (= last Monday): so far he's stuck with the schedule he was supposed to follow. They decide to push him a little bit more. He plays his first points, serving and returning (fast) normally. In the evening, he has an ultrasound scan: everything is looking fine! He says he's feeling much better than when he tried to resume the training on the 1st of January anyway.
He plays 2 hours against Mahut and 30 minutes working on his returning game.

10.02: no training, he feels a bit sick. Does he have a fever? He doesn't want to know: "I refuse to be sick. I won't change my schedule. The point is to test my knee during those 2 weeks, not my health."

12.02 (= last Friday): the doc, Montalvan, gave him the green light yesterday evening, and it means much to him because Montalvan is known for being very cautious.
First real training match on Thursday against Recouderc, Gilles won 6-4 6-3.
Then Ouanna today, Gilles wins 6-4 6-3 too.
He has made his decision, he will play Marseille. Tulasne: "Gilles is so eager to play again and the doc was so happy with the last results that there's no reason to not play."

13.02: a training set won 6-3 against Rufin in the morning in RG, and then he takes the train to Marseille in the afternoon. Room service for dinner to get back into the rhythm of the tournaments, Tulasne explains.

14.02 (= Sunday): first time he allowed himself to sleep in since he has resumed the training. Then he plays 45 minutes with Clément and same with Llodra.

15.02: 90 minutes training with Stakhovsky. Tulasne: "Gilles really has a very good feeling. All the other coaches find he's in great shape. I have never seen him so refreshed mentally and so eager to play. He's smiling all the time."
