Yep, well done Seb!

He played very well especially the important points!

Now there is 1 set all in the second match Richie/Haas!

It seems journalists like Kiefer as much as me..I like this article

Grosjean garde ses nerfs et offre le premier point à la France


Dans une partie sous haute tension, Sébastien Grosjean a su garder ses nerfs pour battre Nicolas Kiefer 7-5, 7-6 (9/7), 6-0 et offrir le premier point à la France face à l'Allemagne au premier tour de la Coupe Davis de tennis, vendredi à Halle.

Le N.2 français a ainsi enlevé un peu de pression des épaules du jeune Richard Gasquet, qui devait affronter l'Allemand Tommy Haas dans la foulée.

Deux semaines après son élimination houleuse par le même Kiefer en quarts de finale de l'Open d'Australie, Grosjean a pris sa revanche dans un match une nouvelle fois électrique.

Regards revolver, tics agaçants, contestations permanentes: Kiefer a ressorti toute la panoplie de gesticulations qui fait sa mauvaise réputation sur le circuit. : lol: So true...

Dans le tie-break, sulfureux et crucial, du deuxième set, le 12e mondial a passé davantage de temps à discuter avec l'arbitre de chaise, nécessitant même l'intervention du superviseur, qu'à jouer au tennis.

Dans ces conditions et dans une atmosphère virant à l'hostile, Grosjean, 23e mondial, a eu le grand mérite de garder la tête froide. Il gardait pourtant une rancoeur envers Kiefer qui, en Australie, avait jeté sa raquette en direction du Français.

Mais Grosjean est resté stoïque dans les moments importants des deux manches initiales, défendant également deux balles de set dans la première.

Profitant ensuite de la dispersion et l'écoeurement de Kiefer, qui ne rentrait plus une balle dans le court, il a survolé le troisième set pour devenir le deuxième joueur cette année à battre l'Allemand, après Roger Federer.

Séb and Kiwi used to be really friends and now they "only" keep good relations. you should all not forget that. Grosjean said on French tv that he was only angry at the umpire for the incident in Australia and not at Kiefer, and that it was not there that the match was lost but because Kiwi played better. But that he was happy to play against him again. I think Séb played a bit better today.

Well done to both. The first two sets were great. I have nothing against Kiwi personnaly. I think it's good to have players with a strong personnality. The commentators here sujested that it may have been someone in the public who shouted out when Kiefer though he had heard the linesjudge...
Poor guys. Maybe they regreted to be German for a minute today because of all the things a furious Kiwi shouted at them...

I like Kiwi.
But he could try to be calmer cuz' it doesn't do him good to be always confrontational as he is...
The Germans are still the huge favorites (well, Richard is serving for the match now...so France could go 2-0 erm...) and Kiefer will be even more motivated for his next match now...

Gasquet just won!?!!!
And in five sets on top of that!?!!!! *2
We were all fearing a chokejob when he wasted his first MPs and got brkoen back at 5-1...but he made it.

1-6, 6-4, 6-4, (1)6-7, 6-3!?!!!

France is now leading 2-0!?!!!! *3

Who would have believed it if someone had said yesterday that France would be ahead 2-0 after the first day of the DC tie against Germany in Germany????
Not me that's for sure.

If Paulo plays on sunday that will mean that there is no "enjeu" but we are still at 2-0. I am a bit afraid of tomorrow's match.

A funny article in l'Equipe today (just the first part) about Kiefer:

ON NE PEUT pas naturellement « kiffer » Kiefer sur un court. Quand il n’éructe pas, l’Allemand grommelle, défie, provoque ou toise, redimensionnant souvent le court à l’échelle d’un ring où s’instruirait une usante guerre des nerfs. Rocky n’est-il pas son film préféré ? Si l’adversaire discute d’un point litigieux avec l’arbitre, il ne se gênera pas pour venir pourrir les débats. Rien de très surprenant donc qu’à Wimbledon l’an dernier, Julien Benneteau ne lui résume l’estime générale de ses pairs après une franche poignée de main en fin de match. « On m’avait dit que t’étais un connard. Eh ben, t’es un vrai connard ! » Julien !!!!!

Avec Zidane, qu’il vénère en pratiquant acharné de foot, « Grosse Mutter » fait partie de son patrimoine hexagonal légué par Simone, sa mère. « Elle me dit toujours de tourner la langue sept fois dans la bouche avant de parler. Et elle a raison ! » À quatre-vingt-dix ans, trinquant au champagne à chaque succès de l’impétueux petit-fils, n’a-t-elle pas réussi l’impensable : calmer (un peu) Kiefer ?
Pauvre mamie, elle a eu le droit à l'eau cette fois-ci...
