1-6 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-3 Losnard.

Do i have to precise Seb was winning 6/1 4/0 before injuring... yes...Seb injured AGAIN , and fought deseperetly (wquite wierd) until the end.
He didn't want to retire, he didn't accept this new injury.
I guess he's sad and totally depressed, he workded a lot this winter, in the order not to injure again, and it didn't pay...so I hope he won't be too muc affected mentally.

My AO is oever now, Arnaud and Paulo lost in double.
Bye bye Australia.

Interesting itw of Forget in l'equipe, after the dramatic australian open...

GUY FORGET dresse un bilan des premiers jours passés à observer le tennis français au bord des courts.

« SÉBASTIEN GROSJEAN, blessé, Jean-René Lisnard, dernier Français qualifié au troisième tour : quel est votre sentiment à six semaines du premier tour de Coupe Davis ?

– Ce début d’année est un peu noir, avec des blessures, des coups du sort comme la varicelle de Richard (Gasquet), le zona de Tatiana (Golovin), et maintenant la blessure de “Seb” ! En marge de cela, il y a eu, dans ce tournoi, des tirages catastrophiques. J’ai l’air de chercher des excuses mais il faut bien reconnaître que beaucoup sont tombés contre des top 10 ou 20, ou se sont affrontés entre eux. Mais c’est bien pour “J.R.” (Lisnard), j’espère qu’il va en profiter et aller encore plus loin.

– Ne regrettez-vous pas que les Français n’aient pas signé au moins un coup d’éclat face à une grosse pointure ?

– Oui car ils ont tous fait une grosse préparation hivernale. Ils ont des projets ambitieux mais j’ai senti aussi une certaine crispation, en particulier chez “Paulo” (Mathieu, battu au premier tour par Carraz), et “Bennet” (Benneteau, contre Nadal) qui a pourtant fait un bon match. Toutefois, la direction est bonne et il ne faut surtout pas se laisser gagner par la frustration.

– Si la Coupe Davis avait lieu la semaine prochaine, vous seriez mal…

– Au niveau du choix, oui. Maintenant, j’ai vu des choses positives… J’ai bien aimé le match d’Arnaud Clément (contre Hewitt). Je trouve que “Paulo” joue un très bon tennis. Sébastien, après une si longue période d’inactivité, a montré des choses convaincantes bien que, quand on me parle du “nouveau Grosjean”, j’ai envie d’ajouter que moi, j’aimais bien l’ancien. Celui qui gagne Bercy, se qualifie pour la finale du Masters et balance des “quiches” en coup droit. well said Guy !

– Que pensez-vous de Monfils qui a quitté le tournoi sans gloire alors qu’il avait un bon tableau…

– Je pense qu’il va se faire remonter les bretelles par Thierry (Champion, son coach) et c’est normal ! Il est en train de faire ses classes. Il a un potentiel fabuleux, des qualités de combattant exceptionnelles mais là, il s’est tiré une balle dans le pied !

– L’ombre de Brad Gilbert plane sur le tennis français en ce moment. Il veut entraîner Golovin, s’extasie devant Monfils… Comment interprétez-vous cet intérêt manifesté par l’ex-coach d’Agassi et Roddick ?

– Ce qui me dérange, c’est le lobbying, cette chasse aux joueurs qui s’organise. Je sais qu’en même temps, il essaie, en sous-main, de séduire Serena Williams, ou toute personne ayant une grosse valeur marchande, et ce n’est pas bien. Il se vante, il est là, à l’affût, aux aguets. S’il veut s’investir dans la carrière de Tatiana, pas de problème, mais qu’il propose un plan vraiment structuré.

– Ne pensez-vous pas que susciter un tel intérêt peut aussi donner confiance aux joueurs visés ?

– Non, pas quand ils sont jeunes et qu’ils doutent. Je sais que le papa de Gaël (Monfils) a appelé son fils avant le match contre Olivier Rochus pour lui dire qu’il y avait un article dans le journal dans lequel Brad Gilbert disait qu’il le voyait bien dans les dix premiers mondiaux en fin de saison. Ce n’est qu’une anecdote, mais elle est révélatrice.

– Avez-vous pu observer les joueurs suédois ?

– J’ai vu Joachim Johansson : il sera très dur à battre. Je pense que nous avons bien fait de choisir la terre battue. Mais il va falloir que d’ici à la rencontre France-Suède (début mars à Strasbourg), les Français élèvent leur niveau de jeu et reprennent confiance. »

they are so screwed for DC its not funny. I saw Joachim against Agassi today....he broke the record for the most ages served at the Aus open i think and the score was like 7-6 6-7 6-7 4-6 or something but he was really putting up a fight against andre so i hate to think how the frenchies will be against him.

So are we assuming that Guy is looking at Paulo and Arnaud for singles?

sweden should be odds-on favourite against france now, especially if seb isn't fit enough to play. but it will be on clay, won't it? hope that will help somewhat....

Paulo?? Ohh la la. Although I must admit, I don't know what basis it will be on if Paulo does get chosen....Guy spent the entire time he was at the match talking to someone in front of me. I'd be very suprised if he saw Paulo playing at all
