Interview from L'équipe.fr:


«SE FAIRE ENCORE PLUS PLAISIR»
Par Sophie DORGAN

Ses résultats sont inversement proportionnels à sa notoriété. Depuis près d'un an, Florent Serra multiplie les bons résultats et pointe désormais à la 44e place mondiale. Toujours modeste, le Bordelais ne fait pas de bruit mais mérite d'être écouté et surtout respecté pour son jeu très polyvalent et en constante progression.


Entre sérénité, calme et agressivité

«Florent Serra, vous avez bien joué à Hambourg en étant le seul joueur à prendre un set à Tommy Robredo. Comment avez-vous vécu ce début de saison sur terre battue ?
J'ai bénéficié de quelques matches supplémentaires sur terre battue par rapport aux autres joueurs grâce à ma tournée en Amérique du Sud même si cela n'a pas été la meilleure tournée que je puisse réaliser. C'est quand même positif, car j'ai obtenu ma sélection en Coupe Davis. Les résultats, c'est bien, mais je garde un petit goût amer sur les matches contre Ljubicic (défaite 7-5 au 3e), où je manque encore un peu de calme, de sérénité et de régularité, également face à Ancic, où j'ai obtenu deux balles de match sur lesquelles je ne peux pas faire grand-chose. Contre Robredo, je suis le seul à lui avoir pris un set, je mène le match vraiment bien. J'ai très bien joué pendant un set et demi. Puis j'ai baissé en intensité, ce n'était pas physique, c'était un peu dans la tête, j'aurai dû me bouger un peu plus quand j'ai vu qu'il reprenait un peu le dessus. J'essaie de trouver du calme et de la sérénité tout en gardant l'agressivité, ce n'est pas facile de trouver ce juste milieu. Mais ce type de match montre que j'ai le niveau et qu'il n'y a pas de raison que cela se passe mal à partir de dimanche prochain.

Vous êtes toujours très critique envers vous-même. Est-ce votre manière d'avancer ou un manque de confiance en vous ?
Je pense que je manque encore de confiance en moi. Rodolphe (Gilbert, son entraîneur) me dit que les autres me craignent vachement parce qu'ils ont vu ce que je pouvais faire, mais je ne m'en rends pas tout à fait compte. En termes de niveau de jeu, j'ai vu ce dont j'étais capable, mais je me dis "est-ce que je vais pouvoir le garder tout le temps". Tout le monde me dit que oui, qu'il n'y a pas de raison, que je joue vraiment très bien. C'est vrai que je manque un peu de confiance en moi. Mais je ne pense pas être trop critique. Sur mes derniers matches, il y a beaucoup de positif à retirer. J'essaie de trouver cette attitude entre la sérénité et le calme, avoir du détachement par rapport à l'événement et en même temps garder de l'agressivité. J'ai un peu de mal à le trouver et je pense que sur des grands matches comme la semaine prochaine, pour tenir la distance face à des Argentins et des rencontres en cinq sets, c'est comme cela que je vais y arriver. Ce n'est pas en étant tendu et crispé pendant deux sets parce que cela diminue l'autonomie. Je pense que je vais finir par y arriver.

Votre première sélection en Coupe Davis contre la Russie contribue-t-elle à vous donner confiance ?
C'était une expérience magique. Je me suis dit : "Guy Forget a confiance en moi, je joue bien au tennis et il n'y a pas de raison pour que je ne me maintienne pas à ce niveau". Ce week-end était magique, j'ai failli être dans les quatre, mais pour une première fois, c'était bien de voir comment cela se passe. Mais j'étais prêt à jouer et je me suis aperçu que je pouvais aussi très bien jouer en indoor et sur surface rapide lors de tous les entraînements. Il faut donc continuer à travailler et surtout maintenant trouver la bonne distance par rapport à l'événement. Se mettre moins de pression et se faire encore plus plaisir.


SES MATCHES REFERENCES
«C'est vrai que j'ai joué très peu de matches en cinq sets. J'ai joué contre Ferrer à l'Australian Open, je pratiquais un très bon tennis mais j'étais encore un peu crispé et j'ai lâché un peu plus vite que lui physiquement. Sur les matches en cinq sets, il y a eu Spadea il y a deux ans à Roland-Garros. C'est un mauvais souvenir, j'avais eu des balles de match pour mon premier tournoi du Grand Chelem dans le tableau. Mais je me suis aperçu que je pouvais tenir 4h45 ou 5h00 sans problèmes. Mes autres repères se situent surtout sur des matches en deux sets comme Ljubicic (défaite 7-5 au 3e) à Monte-Carlo, Ancic (défaite après deux balles de match à Rome) et Robredo que j'avais battu en début d'année et un bon match contre Blake à Rome.»


SES IMAGES DE ROLAND-GARROS
«L'an dernier, j'étais directement dans le tableau avec ma wild-card. Mais j'ai joué plusieurs fois les qualifications. Là, je vais être directement dans le tableau, alors on se voit tout de suite jouer sur un beau court, le Central, contre un très bon joueur et avec du public. Ce sont les images qu'on se fait de Roland-Garros.»

great win for him!! i had a feeling he would beat Robredo because he beat him in Adelaide too, which was a more similar surface than the Hamburg clay

After defeating Julien Benneteau and Djokovic in straight sets, Flo is in the 3rd round of MS Cincinnati. Tonight he will face Robredo, whom he has already beaten twice this year! Allez Flo
(the match should be broadcast live on Sport + )
