Tennis: retour gagnant pour Nicolas Escudé à Doha
DOHA (Reuters) - Le Français Nicolas Escudé a remporté dimanche, après six mois d'inactivité, le tournoi de tennis de Doha, en battant en finale le Croate Ivan Ljubicic, sur le score de 6-3 7-6 (7-4).


Escudé, qui avait dû renoncer aux six derniers mois de la saison 2003 en raison d'une blessure à la hanche, était retombé au-delà de la 100e place mondiale, mais bénéficiait d'un classement protégé (63e) pour entrer dans le tournoi qatari.


Le Français a traversé cette semaine à Doha sans perdre le moindre set, battant successivement Younes El-Aynaoui, tête de série numéro six et vainqueur de l'épreuve en 2002 (6-3 6-0), le qualifié suisse Ivo Heuberger (6-3 6-2), le Coréen Lee Hyung-Taik (6-4 6-2) et l'Argentin Agustin Calleri, numéro huit (6-2 6-3).


En finale, Ivan Ljubicic - pourtant tombeur de Sébastien Grosjean, tête de série numéro quatre, en quart (6-3 5-7 6-4) et de Tim Henman, numéro sept, en demi (7-6 3-6 7-6) - n'a pas fait mieux face à un Nicolas Escudé rassuré quant à son état de santé.


Dans le premier set, le Croate perdait son service au septième jeu et ne parvenait pas à revenir sur le Français qui empochait la première manche 6-3 sans avoir été mis en danger, grâce à un service impeccable et une volée tranchante.


Les deux joueurs se neutralisaient dans la seconde manche et en arrivaient naturellement au jeu décisif.


Le début de ce tie-break était équilibré avant que Nicolas Escudé ne se détache 6-4, pour obtenir deux balles de match. Sur le service de son adversaire, il concluait dès la première d'un passing shot qui laissait Ljubicic impuissant.


"Après mon premier match, je me sentais très confiant. Mais aujourd'hui (samedi) j'étais un peu nerveux parce que je jouais ma première finale depuis bien longtemps", a avoué le Français, après sa victoire.


Nicolas Escudé remporte ainsi le quatrième titre de sa carrière, après Toulouse en 1999 et Rotterdam en 2001 et 2002, le premier en plein air.

he was away for that long? gee... it may go to show how worn out the whole atp set is, playing week after week. someone with talent and *enough rest* can easily wipe them out..... lol (although that someone can't have just sat there and put on weight like rafter!)
