Default Seb whitdrawal for Alicante...is he depressed?

On sporever.fr:

Oficiellement, Sébastien Grosjean a déclaré forfait pour la demi-finale de Coupe Davis face à l’Espagne en raison d’une blessure à la cuisse gauche. Mais en réalité, le Français serait en proie à des problèmes personnels et miné par ses mauvais résultats. Déprimé, le numéro 10 mondial aurait même décidé de mettre un terme à sa saison.


On ne pourrait plus voir Sébastien Grosjean sur un court lors d’un tournoi officiel jusqu’à la fin de la saison. Il aurait en effet décidé de mettre à terme à sa saison, perturbé par des problèmes personnels et très déçu par ses résultats. Le Français ne serait plus motivé pour jouer et bien jouer sur un court de tennis. Mais officiellement, le numéro 10 mondial a renoncé à la demi-finale de Coupe Davis face à l’Espagne en raison d’une blessure à la cuisse…

Poor Seb...is horrible to know that, but it's not a surprise according his attitude on the court...Since month he hasn't been the seb we use to know smiling and motived....
Furthermore there is many weeks that sportifonline doesn't give us of his news...maby all of that is linked, i don't know...
The depression isn't official, but i don't think an injury is all of the problem....
I hope he could be fine soon, and he doesn't decide to stop tennis...but only him know what is the better.
It's difficult because in english i can't express very well what i want to say...:s
An other bad news, there is a rumor about a seperation between seb and his coach Tulasne... perhaps it's better if he decides to begin a new carreer?
Well, i think we'll know more tomorrow...

Kiss to every body (and especially for seb )

ps: sorry for the french article... i had to work and i'm not good at all at english...:s i think the lastone is the main reason!

So, what does this article say exactly? He won't play anymore this season? (that's what I understand from it). I must say, the withdrawal from the DC doesn't surprise me at all - in fact, I was more surprised that he was going to play. And a break with Tulasne doesn't seem a bad idea either. He desperately needs new motivation. Let's wait for more news.

Bad news... :s

Le directeur technique national, Jean-Claude Massias, a annoncé indirectement, mardi soir dans un communiqué, que la saison 2004 était définitivement terminée pour le n°1 français, Sébastien Grosjean.


Jean-Claude Massias a par ailleurs indiqué que Thierry Tulasne, qui entraînait Grosjean depuis décembre 2002, retrouverait son poste d'entraîneur national à la suite de la décision du joueur de mettre un terme à sa saison 2004. Le DTN confirme ainsi que Grosjean ne jouera plus cette année et qu'il a mis un terme au contrat qui le liait à Tulasne.

Sébastien Grosjean n'a remporté que 28 victoires pour 15 défaites depuis début 2004 et n'a pas joué une seule fois avec l'équipe de France en Coupe Davis. Ses meilleurs résultats ont été un quart de finale à l'Open d'Australie, une finale au Queen's et une demi-finale à Wimbledon. Mais il a disparu dès le premier tour à Montréal et à Cincinnati avant d'échouer en quarts de finale aux Jeux Olympiques d'Athènes et au deuxième tour à l'US Open.

Le dernier de ses trois titres remonte à octobre 2002 à Saint-Pétersbourg. Il lui avait permis de se hisser à la 4e place dans la hiérarchie mondiale. Miné par des blessures et des problèmes personnels, Grosjean n'a cessé de donner une image terne de lui cette saison. Il est actuellement classé 10e mondial, tant dans le championnat mondial 2004 de l'ATP qu'au classement technique.


Well i don't know what to say... it's horrible because seb isn't fine and we can't do any thing....
I hope this break will be good for him and we'll see him next year in great fit.

Default Re: Seb whitdrawal for Alicante...is he depressed?

As always I don't get a word when the interview is in French, but from everybody else's reaction I can make a guess...
WHAT WHAT WHAT!!!??? Do you seriously mean that he isn't going to play again in year 2004? Just how injured is he? Or is the break due to other, unspecified reasons? Ever since Wimbledon he's been out of sorts, losing and not playing particularly well, and certainly not up to usual standards - but do you really believe there's actually something wrong with him? Depressed? Not happy with Tuslasne? Not happy with tennis??? (God forbid)

I haven't seen him in a million years or something like it, but I really want to see him back on the courts AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! And preferably in a happy mood, with his adorable smile plastered all over his face, and playing the stylish flamboyant tennis I always connect with him!!!

Please, get well, Grosjean!

It's official, he broke up with Tulasne...OMG !! Why ??
His decisions are so weird, I don't understand !!! WHAT HAPPENS IN HIS LIFE ???????

I don't think he's depressed about his results, after losing in us open, he wasn't disapointed at all, in the contrary ! And Seb is not the guy who stops his season because he thinks he plays badly. No. I guess he has big personnal problems if he decided to stop.

I agree Marine. Especially now that he's in the top 10. Isn't that what he always wanted?

Today's news on Fox Sports:

Grosjean misses semi-final

From correspondents in Paris
September 15, 2004

FRANCE will be without its top player Sebastien Grosjean for the Davis Cup tennis semi-final against Spain later this month.

Team captain Guy Forget today said he would count on Arnaud Clement, Mickael Llodra, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Fabrice Santoro and replacement Julien Benneteau for the tie on clay in Alicante from September 24-26.

A left thigh injury had initially been given for world No.10 Grosjean's decision not to play.

But a series of poor results are also being blamed for the Frenchman's low spirits and his subsequent decision to end the season.

Grosjean, eliminated in the second round of the US Open earlier this month, has not played Davis Cup this year, missing the first round against Croatia because of an adductor injury and the quarter-finals against Switzerland because of a virus.

"Until now we've played the entire 2004 campaign without him and we've gotten through. We're still just as motivated as before," said Forget.

Mathieu has been recalled after being left in the cold following a crushing defeat in the final against Russia in 2002.

Spain, who has a 4-1 record against France, comprises of Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Tommy Robredo and Rafael Nadal.

The other semi-final will be between the US and Belarus on hard court in Charleston, South Carolina with the final set for December 3-5.

Default Re: Seb whitdrawal for Alicante...is he depressed?

I'm not going to jump to conclusions; as far as I can tell the only official news up to now is his break with Tulasne (and that is not so weird a decision as he needs a new impulse - tennis players break up with their coaches all the time, don't they?).

I think the rest is just conjecture. Poor results? F Queens, SF Wimbledon, QF Olympics, being in the top 10 are poor results?

You know, Sjeng Schalken suffered from a virus earlier this season; and after that he was tired all the time. Recently, it turned out he had glandular fever. Maybe it's something like that with Seb, as he was suffering from a virus also earlier this season (same time as Schalken, actually). Hmmm now I'm conjecturing myself LOL.

It's just that I don't see Sébastien Grosjean being depressed! He's such a happy-go-lucky kind of person (or so it seems). But if he needs time to get his act together and sort things out, so be it.

Default Re: Seb whitdrawal for Alicante...is he depressed?

I tried to translate the article of l'equipe of today,please excuse the translation...

That's monday that the rumor has started to leak out in tennis's world. The reason ? "personal problems". Hard to find confirmation, S.Grosjean, who's in Florida, decided to change his phone number, and, since a while, is very selective at phone.
Yesterday morning, Thierry Tulasne confirmed: "I can't say anything. Duty to preserve secrecy. That's frustating not to explain but it's like that".
His answer was a semi confession.
In the after noon, J.C Massias (DTN), confirmed too: "I had Sebastien at phone, he said me he decided to stop his season cos of an injury, ans so he won't be able to play the DC. I don't know more".
In the same time, a press release of AFP annonced the compostition of the team, adding: "Grosjean is perturbed by personal problems and depressed bu his bad results".
After, Sebastien G. publicated himself a press release, without allusion to his private life.
[...]
For the moment, it seems that he might give more info today about his situation.
Why to be simple when it's possible to be difficult ? What's the gravity of his injury ? Is his withdraw linked to personal problems ? Which future for the player who had annonced, some times ago, that he wanted to be number 1 ?
So many questions that deserve answers.
To read his atp ranking, it's not depressing though. Number 10, he was still in the running for a quelification in the masters. [...]



Guy Forget'c recation in interview:
How did you know for sebastien's injury ?
3 days ago. He called me and said he was hurted after playing football with friends. That's a pîty...of course I think we are penalized bu that. I'm quite shattered, even if I can count on another players. But I thought Seb would be there, we needed of him. But it's like that, he can't be there. Can can I say ? He's in the USA...

It seems he stoped his season after this "injury" ? Whzt do you think about that ?
I can't comment that, there are lots things I don't tknow. It's not to me to speak a about. Seb says me "I can't play, I'm injured". Well, so, ok...



My feeling: it is very weird all these secrets. I don't like that at all.
I wonder what he thinks, what he does, what are his problems ?
But I have the impression that Guy is very disapointed. He probably knows more tha he wants to say, and he probably knows it's not cos of an injury.
I know he counts a lot on his best player, on the team spirit etc... just hope this situation won't turn in a "santoro polemic bis".
