watched edouards game versus beck last week. he was so unlucky in the 1st set. beck had 2 dead net cords to give him break points (that ed saved). on the 2nd one they were both sort of laughin that it had happened again. then on set point another dead net cord to beck. ed was like 'you kiddin me' and beck, though a little embarrassed, was like 'what do you want me to do?'. was really impressed with eds attitude. he played solid on the many break points he faced and he never gave up - he could have easily been pissed off after the first set but he wasnt he carried on fighting. looked like he has quite a nice game. he serve volleyed about 1 point per game. from what i seen could easly be ranked 100 places higher.

I can only assume JMDP was a shadow of himself, especially on this surface, but it is very encouraging to see Edouard finding him form and now having this big scalp Really good to see Allez!

Default Re: You need to know about Edouard Roger-Vasselin

I don't have time to translate it, but the "super mec, gentil et pas con" gets a nice article in L'Equipe today:
Quote:
Papa, j’ai rétréci Del Potro

Fils du demi-finaliste de Roland-Garros 1983, Édouard Roger-Vasselin, 189e mondial, s’est payé hier le vainqueur de l’US Open (6-4, 6-4).

NADAL, MURRAY, LJUBICIC, Djokovic, Federer, Hewitt, Murray, Roger-Vasselin. Vous avez sous les yeux le répertoire chronologique de ceux qui ont battu Juan Martin Del Potro ces six derniers mois. Et il n’y a pas de coquille, Roger-Vasselin, 189e roue du carrosse, est bien dans le club. Au choix, vous trouverez cela bizarre, marrant, trompeur ou anecdotique. Il ne faudrait surtout pas oublier d’ajouter : mérité.
Hier, l’Argentin, 5e mondial, n’a ni balancé ni signalé de blessure. Lent, bien en peine pour se dégager et frapper les balles venant au corps, déréglé du coup droit, il n’était simplement pas au sommet de son art. « J’ai mal joué. J’ai appelé le docteur parce que j’avais l’estomac barbouillé. Il m’a dit que c’était juste l’effet du décalage horaire avec l’Argentine. Mais ce n’est pas une excuse. Si je ne suis pas au top, vainqueur en Grand Chelem ou pas, je perds contre un gars qui prend sa chance et qui sait jouer. »
Édouard sait jouer. Édouard est aussi un garçon sage. On a trop souvent entendu tout ça dans la même discussion. Ça disait : « Joli jeu, super mec, gentil, pas con, mais il n’a pas la gnaque. » Le super mec, gentil et pas con le reconnaît. « Quand je m’entraînais contre Mathieu ou Gasquet, je pensais avant tout à les faire bien jouer. Pas à gagner le point. » Au fait, c’est vrai que son jeu est joli. Hier, il a bien mieux servi que Del Potro (d’où les six balles de break sauvées sur six). Il a même souvent dominé l’Argentin à l’échange. Et puis il y croyait. « Je m’étais dit : “Soit tu prends ça comme un match sympa, Del Potro, un central de dix mille places… Soit tu prends ça comme un match sympa que tu veux gagner.” J’ai souvent pensé à Jérôme Haehnel battant Agassi à Roland-Garros en 2004 (Agassi était 6e, Haehnel 271e). »

Pour Mathieu…
Deux fois hier, le Parisien, vingt-cinq ans, a tangué. D’abord, dans le tout premier jeu du match, sur son service. « Crispation. J’étais impressionné. » Puis au moment de servir à 5-4 dans le premier set. « Je me suis calmé, j’ai rentré deux volées de coup droit à mi-court (sur deux balles de débreak) et c’était reparti. En gagnant le premier set, en tenant bon au début du second, quand il s’est mis à envoyer fort, j’ai dû le faire douter. Je me mets à sa place : il affronte un petit joueur qu’il ne connaît pas et, là, ça devient pénible… »
Pénible, ce n’est pas assez fort pour décrire l’été passé par Roger-Vasselin. La mort subite de Mathieu Montcourt, son ami, l’a bouleversé. « Ma copine était avec Mathieu le soir du drame. Elle me l’a appris en direct ; c’était plus que violent. Je n’ai pas pu jouer pendant trois semaines. » À cette époque, il est en train de quitter le Team Lagardère. « Je les ai quittés ou je me suis fait quitter, je ne sais plus trop, sourit-il. J’ai passé trois ans avec eux et atteint mon meilleur classement en juillet 2007 (82e) après mes troisièmes tours à Roland-Garros et à Wimbledon. Mais la fin de l’histoire n’a pas été terrible. »
Maintenant, Édouard est au Paris Lagardère. (Ça ressemble, mais ça n’a rien à voir.) Un simple club et Grégory Carraz, 54e en 2004, comme coach. « Avec Grégory, on a fait deux jours d’entraînement ensemble, juste avant que je parte seul faire les qualifs à Bangkok et ici. Il est bon Carraz, non ? » Et papa, il est comment ? « Au téléphone, mon père m’a dit un truc : “ Essaie le slice court sur le coup droit de Del Potro, il peut rater.” »
Le fiston a écouté son père et ç’a très bien marché. Faut dire que les chips de revers, Christophe, battu par Noah en demi-finales de Roland-Garros en 1983, il savait y faire. Combien de fois Édouard a répondu à des questions avec « ton père » dans l’intitulé ? Même les journalistes japonais lui ont fait le coup hier. « Fils à papa, fils de…, plus jeune, ça me gonflait. Après, il y a eu les réflexions, du genre : “Hum, c’est pas le niveau du paternel.” Du coup, bêtement, je n’ai pas assez profité des conseils de mon père. J’ai envie que ça change. » Dis papa, t’aurais pas un tuyau pour battre Jürgen Melzer ?
FRÉDÉRIC BERNÈS
Quote:
CHRISTOPHE ROGER-VASSELIN, tombeur de Connors en quarts de finale à Roland-Garros en 1983, année où il atteignit le 39e rang mondial, apprécie la belle victoire de son fils : « Sa perf ne m’étonne pas. Bravo ! Chapeau ! Parce qu’il est parti tout seul se taper les qualifications en Asie, c’est bien qu’il soit récompensé de la sorte. En juillet 2007, il était 82e. Ces derniers temps, il oscillait entre 150e et 180e, je lui ai demandé ce qu’il sentait comme différence dans son jeu entre ces deux périodes. Il m’a répondu : “Rien, rien du tout. Simplement un peu de confiance…” Il a persévéré et voilà le résultat. Je ne peux malheureusement pas le conseiller pour Melzer, car je ne connais que ceux qui passent souvent à la télé. À mon avis, il a toutes les armes pour monter, pourquoi pas, dans les cinquante premiers à l’ATP. »

Default Re: You need to know about Edouard Roger-Vasselin

I saw the last 2 sets of his match today, he was great, very impressed by his composure too!

Here's the translation of yesterday's article:
NADAL, MURRAY, LJUBICIC, Djokovic, Federer, Hewitt, Murray, Roger-Vasselin. This is the list of the players who have beaten JMDP in the last 6 months. There's no typo. Roger-Vasselin, "189th wheel of the coach", does belong to the list. You might find that weird, funny, deceptive or trivial. But don't forget to add: well-deserved.
The Argentine, 5th player in the world, didn't tank or mention any injury yesterday. He was slow, standing too close to the ball, couldn't find his rhythm on the FH side, he simply wasn't at his best. "I played poorly. I called the doc because I was feeling nauseous. He told me it was just the jetlag. But that's not an excuse. Having won a Slam doesn't make any difference: if I'm not playing my best tennis, I will lose to a guy who takes his chance and knows how to play tennis."
Édouard does know how to play tennis. Édouard also is a good boy. We've heard all that so many times already. "Pretty game, great guy, nice, clever, but no guts/not the mentality of a winner." The "great guy" admits it. "When I was training with Mathieu and Gasquet, I was trying to make them play well. Not to win the point."
It's true he has a pretty game, by the way. He served better than Del Potro yesterday (hence the 6 BP saved out of 6). He even dominated the rallies very often. And he believed he could do it. "I said to myself: 'Either you take it as a nice match, Del Potro, a Center Court with 10 000 seats... Or you take it as a nice match you want to win.' I thought a lot of Jérôme Haehnel beating Agassi in Roland-Garros in 2005 (when he was ranked 271st in the world, Agassi was 6th)."
The 25-year-old Parisian was shaky twice. The first time in the first game of the match, on his serve. "The tension. I was impressed." The 2nd time when he served for the first set at 5-4. "I calmed down, hit two FH volleys mid-court on 2 BP and got things going again. It probably made him doubt when I won the first set and held at the beginning of the 2nd set, while he was starting to hit the ball harder. I can imagine how he was feeling: he was playing a small guy he didn't know, it was tough..."
Tough wouldn't be strong enough to describe Roger-Vasselin's summer. The sudden death of his friend Mathieu Montcourt shattered him. "My girlfriend was with Mathieu on that night, she was telling me on the phone what was happening. It was more than brutal. I couldn't play for the next 3 weeks." At that time he was also about to leave the Team Lagardère. "I left them or maybe they made me leave them, I don't remember, he smiles. I spent 3 years there and I reached my best ranking with them in July 2007 after making it to the 3rd round in Roland-Garros and Wimbledon. But the end of the story wasn't so nice."
Édouard now is training at the Paris Lagardère. (It sounds similar, but it has nothing to do with the other thing.) A simple tennis club, with Grégory Carraz (#54 in 2004) as a coach. "We practiced 2 days together with Grégory just before I left to play the qualies in Bangkok and here. Pretty good, this Carraz, isn't he?"
And his dad? Is he good too? "My father told me one thing on the phone: 'Try some short slice on Delpo's FH, he might miss then.'" Édouard listened to his father and it worked very well. You have to know that the slice BH was the speciality of Christophe Roger-Vasselin, who lost to Noah in the French Open semi-final in 1983. How many times has Édouard been asked questions about his father? Even the Japanese journalists did yesterday. "All this talk was annoying me when I was young. Then people started to say: 'Hmmm, he's not as good as the father'. In a silly reaction to all this, I didn't take enough advantage of the advice my father was giving to me. I want things to be different now." Hey, dad, do you have a trick to beat Jürgen Melzer too?

And his father also comments a little bit on the match, he says he isn't surprised and it's well-deserved since Édouard decided to leave alone for Asia to play the qualies there. He asked him lately about the difference he feels in his game compared with his level of 2007 and Édouard answered he doesn't notice any difference - just a matter of confidence.
He can't give him any piece of advice for the match against Melzer, though, because he only knows the players he often sees on TV. He thinks Édouard can crack the top 50, why not.

The article in L'Equipe after the win over Melzer:
Quote:
Édouard, youplaboum !
Après Del Potro, Édouard Roger-Vasselin, 189e mondial, a fait valser Melzer et s’attaque aujourd’hui à Hewitt.

CONNAISSEZ-VOUS l’histoire du mec qui perd contre le Finlandais Timo Nieminen (pas Jarkko, Timo), 525e mondial, au premier tour d’un Challenger aux Pays-Bas ? Eh bien, le mec en question, Édouard Roger-Vasselin, bat, un mois après, Juan Martin Del Potro, vainqueur de l’US Open, puis Jürgen Melzer, 39e, dans un tournoi ATP 500, la troisième catégorie par le haut. Pas mal, cette histoire. « J’y comprends rien, sourit le Parisien, vingt-cinq ans, passé par les qualifs à Tokyo. Entre les Pays-Bas et le Japon, je ne suis pas devenu un autre. C’est bizarre, la vie… » C’est ce qu’a dû penser Melzer, hier, à force de voir filer sous son museau des aces et des aces. À la longue, ça l’a rendu très, très nerveux. Et Roger-Vasselin put alors contenir l’attaquant gaucher (4-6, 6-2, 6-3). Sa première préoccupation après sa victoire fut d’éplucher ses stats au service. Et là, c’était un peu « pince-moi, je rêve ! » « Quinze aces ! (dont neuf dans le dernier set). Zéro double faute ! Ça ne m’arrive jamais. Ce n’est pas normal, mais tant mieux. Cela dit, c’est vrai que j’ai bien travaillé ce coup dernièrement. Mais là, quinze aces… » Il fera à peu près la même tête quand on l’informera qu’il a battu deux top 50 en trois jours à Tokyo alors qu’il n’en avait épinglé qu’un (Chela, 20e, à Wimbledon 2007) en six ans sur le circuit. Et si Lleyton Hewitt passe aussi à la casserole aujourd’hui en quarts de finale, ça en fera un de plus. Hewitt, ce serait un assez bon antiportrait de Roger-Vasselin. L’Australien fut un talent précoce, pas Édouard. « Je n’ai jamais été dans les équipes de France de jeunes. » Et l’Australien est une teigne, pas Édouard. « Hewitt, s’il peut me bouffer, il ne va pas se gêner. Moi, mon gros défaut, c’est d’être trop gentil. Mais j’essaie de changer ma nature. » Ça vaut le coup d’essayer. C’est ainsi qu’on peut perdre un jour contre le 525e mondial et se retrouver un autre jour à signer cinquante autographes à des Japonais déchaînés. Entre les deux, un mois. – F. Be.
One month ago, he was losing to Timo Nieminen (Timo, not Jarkko), ranked 525th in the world, in the 1st round of a Challenger. "I don't understand at all what is happening to me, he smiles. I'm not a different person now. Life is strange..." That's what Melzer certainly thought yesterday too while he was aced left and right. It made him very, very nervous as the games went by.
Doud's first reaction after the match was to check his stats. And he couldn't believe it. "15 aces! 0 double fault! But that never happens to me. It's not normal. But it's great. I've worked a lot on this shot lately. Still, 15 aces..."
Hewitt is pretty much the opposite of ERV. Precocious, unlike Édouard - "I never was in the French teams when I was young." And a battler, unlike Édouard. "Hewitt will make no bones about giving me a beatdown if he can do it. My big problem is that I'm too nice. But I try to change my nature." It's worth a try. That's how one finds himself signing autographs for loads of crazy Japanese fans one month after having lost to the 525th player in the world.
