Flo will be in the DC team against Russia.

From l'équipe.fr

Quote:
Guy Forget, capitaine des Bleus en Coupe Davis, a choisi de garder la même équipe qu'au premier tour face à l'Allemagne, à savoir Richard Gasquet, Sébastien Grosjean en simple et Arnaud Clément et Michaël Llodra en double. Florent Serra voit son beau parcours à Miami et ses progrès depuis un an récompensés avec une entrée dans le groupe comme cinquième homme. Les Tricolores rencontreront les Russes, qui devraient voir le retour de Marat Safin dans leur groupe, du 7 au 9 avril à Pau (surface rapide).
Interview of Guy Forget:

Quote:
Guy Forget, avez-vous eu des doutes sur cette sélection ?
«Je dirais un peu facilement qu'on ne change pas une équipe qui gagne. Tous les joueurs sont bons en ce moment et certains sont même plutôt mieux qu'il y a un mois. Le cinquième joueur sera Florent Serra. Il est 38 ou 39e à l'ATP, il a bien joué à Miami et il a bien joué depuis le début de saison. Il mérite de tenter l'aventure. Paul-Henri Mathieu, qui était cinquième homme la dernière fois, n'est pas là cette fois. Mais il est très proche, tout comme Gaël Monfils, qui manque juste un peu de confiance en ce moment.
I guess Flo will be very happy

I just love this article, so nice words!

Quote:
Florent Serra, un rêve de petit garçon

Appelé pour la première fois en équipe de France de Coupe Davis, le Bordelais Florent Serra a expliqué savourer «comme un petit garçon» sa sélection par le capitaine Guy Forget.

Il sera remplaçant pour le quart de finale France-Russie, qui aura lieu à Pau du 7 au 9 avril prochain.
«Je suis super content, c'est un rêve de petit garçon qui se réalise», a déclaré Florent Serra, 25 ans, à Reuters.

«Quand on est petit, on rêve de jouer à Roland Garros, de jouer sur des grands courts et aussi de jouer en Coupe Davis, donc aujourd'hui, je suis super heureux. Cela me fait très plaisir et me touche énormément».

«Maintenant, j'ai vraiment hâte d'y être, de goûter l'ambiance et de voir comment cela se passe.» Vainqueur de son premier titre à Bucarest en 2005, le sociétaire de la Villa Primrose avait récidivé en tout début de saison 2006, en s'imposant en finale du tournoi d'Adélaïde.

Au Masters Series de Miami, tournoi où Guy Forget peaufinait sa sélection, Serra a atteint le 3e tour, ne s'inclinant qu'après un match très disputé face au Croate Mario Ancic (7-6 6-7 6-2).

«Cette sélection est, je pense, le résultat de mon début de saison et aussi de mes performances de l'année dernière», a commenté Serra.

«Maintenant, cela va être à moi de bien me préparer, mais je suis sûr que cela va bien se passer, notamment avec les autres joueurs. En Coupe Davis, il y a tout un entourage qui est là pour nous aider à nous intégrer au mieux et à gérer la pression». C'est au restaurant des joueurs de Miami que Florent Serra a appris sa sélection.

«Guy est venu me voir et m'a demandé qu'on se parle cinq minutes. Il m'a dit qu'il comptait sur moi et qu'il fallait que je sois également prêt à jouer car on ne sait jamais ce qui peut arriver».

Le capitaine de l'équipe de France aura également pu juger des qualités de joueur de double de Florent Serra puisqu'à Miami il était engagé aux côtés de Sébastien Grosjean.

Les deux hommes ont été battus au deuxième tour par les frères Bryan, numéro un mondiaux de la spécialité, après avoir sorti la paire composée de l'ex-numéro un mondial russe Marat Safin et l'Australien Mark Philippoussis, ancien finaliste de l'US Open et de Wimbledon. (Reuters | Le Matin)
I’m also so happy for him and hope this is just a beginning

Default Re: Florent Serra

I've thought to make a short summary of last Florent's affairs since I wasn't able to observe everything in the right time...

So. Flo seemed to have a great time during DC tie against Russia practicing in a great company and loudly cheering his mates from the bench . The last thing looked especially nice because I haven't seen him reacting so actively on empire's decisions even when he plays some important match himself.


Next week he practised in the same great company (what a good choice ) again. The only difference is that it was in Aix-en-Provence, on the clay courts.


And this week we could see the results of his work in Monaco. He played his first match against Srichaphan who has never been an easy rival. And so even despite the fine looking scores 6-1 7-5 I bet the match was pretty tough.


The next his match was the last one for Monaco tourney but Flo can be proud of it anyway. Here is the story:

Serra y a cru.
Florent Serra a bien failli faire tomber la tête de série numéro 4, le Croate Ivan Ljubicic. Le Français avait pourtant bien entamé la rencontre, en remportant le premier set 6-4. Mais Ljubicic a pris le meilleur dans la seconde manche (6-3) , et les deux hommes se sont alors engagés dans un troisème set très serré. Serra a malheureusement lâché au plus mauvais moment, concédant son service à 5-5 pour s'incliner finalement 7-5. A ce niveau, c'est souvent l'expérience qui fait la différence, et Serra pourra nourrir quelques regrets.

The next step has to be participating at Casablanka tournament next week where he's likely to be the 1st seed.
EDIT: now it's unlikely because he is out. Maybe he's right because there was no possibility to play against higher-ranked players - the thing he usually likes...

lol I was editing my post adding there that news in the same time you was writing your comment lol Don't know maybe he wasn't going to play there like it was with Zagreb - though he was in the entry list almost till the very end.
I guess he just doesn't want to leave Europe now. And if so he's right then.

Flo was drawn Soderling in the first round of Munich.
It will be tough. Good luck Flo!

Default Re: Florent Serra

Yes, Florent has got not the best draw there in Munich but I hope it won’t be too tough for him. According his results Soderling seems to play not bad at all on clay – but not awfully great, too. Moreover it’ll be his first match after recovering from an injury so I think he wouldn’t play too aggressive.

Court 13
Matches Start At 1:00 PM
Florent SERRA (FRA) vs Robin SODERLING (SWE)

I love Germans, they didn’t mention Flo is the list of favorites where they included almost everybody, even Youzhny and Srichaphan (who plays doubles together with Florent, on Wednesday I suppose), and they put Flo’s match on the court 13…
Ok, will see. Allez Florent!!!! Bonne chance a toi.

Well,… there was one more lose in a very close match: 7-6(8) 5-7 4-6.
Now two singles losers Florent and Paradorn are going to try they last chance and play doubles against two good German players. Well, better luck to the international couple. Maybe they’ll improve they’ve come to Munich not hanging out at clubs only – like this picture shows (isn’t it Florent there in a light shirt near… Haas?).



Anyway they are even on the central court today:

Centre Court Match Start at 12:00

Robin Soderling vs Kristof Vliegen
Alexander Waske vs Jarkko Nieminen
Jan Hernych vs Philipp Kohlschreiber
Michael Kolhmann/Rainer Schuettler vs Florent Serra/Paradorn Srichapan

UPD for the info: Michael Kolhmann/Rainer Schuettler def. Florent Serra/Paradorn Srichapan 6-1 3-6 12-10.

Now it's time of Masters in Rome - and Florent has already gone through the first round beating Blake(7) 6-4 7-6(3)

Next victim is Ancic... I hope.

The best of luck to Flo, allez!!!
