Wink Re: Articles & Interviews

I'm surprised he dislike selfishness the most! It's interesting he often uses the same shower during a tournament,does that mean maybe he has mysophobia? Also being his girlfriend is lucky,he treats her as a dearest ownership!I would like to marry a man like him!

In L'équipe today:

GSTAAD (ATP, terre battue)


Rendez-vous avec la une


Gasquet et Mathieu continuent d’avancer à leur rythme pour finir par exploiter au mieux leur grand potentiel.


GSTAAD – (SUI)

de notre envoyé spécial


ON N’EST PAS DEMAIN. Annoncés hier (début 2003) comme les numéros 1 à venir, Paul-Henri Mathieu, vingt-quatre ans, et Richard Gasquet, vingt ans, n’ont encore exploité, ni l’un ni l’autre, l’intégralité de leur potentiel, sinon de façon ponctuelle.

Respectivement 33e et 60e à l’ATP (soit no 3 et no 9 français), Mathieu et Gasquet étaient réunis cette semaine à Gstaad, où le premier, malgré une balle de match, a été sorti d’entrée, hier, par le fantasque Serbe Dusan Vemic (30 ans, 425e), en totale réussite dans son diptyque service-volée retour-amortie (3-6, 7-5, 7-6). Le second a gagné au terme d’un match contrôlé contre l’Allemand Simon Greul (80e, 6-3, 6-3). Le grand écart des résultats d’hier ne doit pourtant pas masquer que, si Mathieu et Gasquet n’ont ni les mêmes qualités ni les mêmes failles, leurs histoires regorgent néanmoins de points communs.

En résumé : ils ont appris à perdre sur le tard tant leur domination dans les catégories benjamins, minimes et cadets était exclusive. Ils ont aussi tous deux été victimes de blessures qui ont mis un frein à leur ascension : en 2002 pour Mathieu après ses titres – les deux seuls à ce jour – à Moscou et à Lyon ; l’an passé pour Gasquet alors qu’il venait d’intégrer le top 15 mondial.


Tulasne : « Je crois

au plan A + »


Enfin tous deux viennent de refaire la preuve de ce qui leur vaut de générer tant d’espoirs : Mathieu a livré à Nadal son plus furieux combat à Roland-Garros (5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 en 4 h 53’) puis Gasquet a inquiété Federer sur le gazon de Halle (7-6, 6-7, 6-4). Bref, ils ont tous les deux de l’or dans la raquette.

Faut-il s’inquiéter dès lors que Gasquet soit aujourd’hui loin du 12e rang mondial atteint en septembre 2005 et que Mathieu n’ait encore pas réussi la moindre incursion dans le top 30 ? Faut-il s’en tenir aux stats de l’année 2006 qui assurent pour chacun un déficit de victoires ? En fait, non.

Thierry Tulasne bouclera la semaine prochaine un an de collaboration avec Mathieu et cerne désormais bien le gaillard : « 2005 était une phase de reconstruction. “Paulo” n’a pas connu de pépin physique et il a éclairci l’identité de son jeu. À Roland-Garros, il a senti que Nadal n’était pas sur une autre planète physiquement. En plus, le lendemain, il avait récupéré ! Il se serait senti capable d’enchaîner. » « Je sais que j’ai une bonne base, consentait Mathieu hier, et que si je retrouve Nadal à l’US Open, par exemple, je croirai en ma victoire. » Rassuré sur son physique, PHM l’est aussi sur l’ensemble de son tennis, qui peut s’autosuffire : « On a beaucoup dit que “Paulo” ne disposait pas d’un plan B dans son jeu, rappelle Tulasne, mais très peu de joueurs en ont un. Je crois davantage au plan A +, continuer à faire ce qu’il sait faire mais encore mieux. » Pas de panique, donc, malgré la défaite d’hier.

Côté Gasquet, aucune raison de s’alarmer non plus. « Richard a pris conscience l’an dernier qu’il pouvait toucher le plus haut niveau, rappelait, hier, Éric Deblicker juste après la victoire de celui qu’il entraîne depuis bientôt deux ans. Mais aujourd’hui le piège serait qu’il se dise : “J’ai été douzième donc, si j’affronte le dix-huitième, je dois le battre.” L’an dernier, pas mal de gens s’enflammaient et le voyaient déjà gagner un Grand Chelem. Moi je pense que ça ne pourrait pas être avant ses vingt-deux, vingt-trois ans... »

À en croire Deblicker, vivement 2008 ou 2009 donc, soit en parfaite synchronisation avec l’éventuel avènement de Mathieu : « Je crois que “Paulo” doit s’inspirer d’Amélie Mauresmo, assure Tulasne. Je parle de la confiance qu’elle a mis du temps à gagner, et de l’épanouissement qui la caractérise désormais sur le court. Elle a trouvé tout ça vers vingt-cinq, vingt-six ans, “Paulo” en a vingt-quatre et je le vois bien à son apogée vers vingt-six, vingt-sept ans. » « Le temps passe, quand même, soupirait Mathieu, hier, après sa défaite, mais bon tout vient quand on s’y attend le moins et puis on voit des footeux encore très bien à trente-trois, trente-quatre ans… » Gasquet ne regarde pas si loin, lui qui a fêté ses vingt ans il y a moins d’un mois. En revanche, il vient de se revoir plus jeune « en me repassant les vidéos de Hambourg 2005 (il y fut finaliste contre Federer). Je sers mieux aujourd’hui ! Je joue mieux même. De toute façon, ça commence maintenant. C’est une période pas facile à vivre mais, à la limite, c’est plus intéressant à gérer que quand tout roule. Je ne sais pas quand ça va venir mais ça viendra. J’ai été douzième et je vais y retourner, c’est sûr, aucun souci. » Vivement demain.


JULIEN REBOULLET

Well I don't know if Mauresmo, younger, was choking against players ranked#425

It's funny to see that Tulasne sees a similarity between Momo and Paulo.

It seems to me like he lost tons of confidence after losing that 1st "point" on serve!

He reminded me, again, why we call him
