Oh dear! am I correct in thinking that Seb has NOT been picked to play Davis Cup against Russia?

He is the 5th player on the team (i.e. the reserve).

Seb's playing doubles with Llodra in the Davis Cup QF tie!

What happened to Clement?

Bonjour à tous,

Je pense que c'est une bonne chose d'avoir écarté Séb' des matchs en simple. Déjà contre Pavel face à la Roumanie, c'étail limite. Vu la forme actuelle de PHM, il n'y a pas photo.
Par contre je comprends pas trop ce que Séb' fout dans le double ???!!!

The article from L'Équipe explains pretty well why Forget picked him instead of Clément, I posted it in the DC thread:

Mouais, bof. Sans plus. Jouer la carte de l'originalité serait-elle la nouvelle stratégie de notre Guy national ? Je crois plutôt qu'il en a ras-le-cul de perdre contre la Russie. Donc, il tente un coup de bluff qui peut redorer son blason au sein de la FFT ou définitivement bien l'enfoncer...

Perhaps not everything went perfectly, but the end was just great. And it was said that in the beginning of the week Seb caught a cold so he got well only recently. So even more respect to him And keep this motivation, please!!!!

Default Re: Davis Cup

One very small minior point, hardly worth mentioning, but it is something that I noticed and as I have said before people I know, would nether care, much less notice such a detail. So I'm afraid I have to unburden my thoughts upon yourselves (I apologise in advance). But, at the end of Seb's Davis Cup match which he won, he refused to shake hands with the umpire. I know they had a disagreement about a line call, and Seb was very upset about it, but I can't say I have ever seen another player refuse to shake hands with the umpire even if they have had a difference of opinion. He did it last year at the Austrialian Open after the infamous racket throwing incident and as I said before I feel he had every right to do so. But is it just me or was that a little bit ungracious considering that he won the match. I'm not criticising him, it was an important match and feelings were obviously running high. But what with that and the moment he said the 'F" word when he hit the ball into the net I think he was a naughty boy and a spank might be in order!

Seems to be his form of protest when he feels wronged in a match! Since I have been watching Seb I have only seen him do this twice - so I guess he must have felt it important enough to the outcome of the match each time.

When did he swear!? I didn't see this match except for a few highlights. Was it that obvious!?

I taped the match and missed it the first time I watched it, by the 85th time (only kidding), I watch it for a second time and towards the end of the match he was serving I can't remember the exact score I will have to watch the tape again.... but I will and I'll let you know so that if you have it on tape you can see for yourself. Anyway he hit the ball into the net and I could not hear what he said but it was pretty obvious what he mouthed and he was upset with himself for the mistake. I should think he thought he could get away with it because the crowd was predominantly Russian and French. Not really that earth shattering he can swear if he wants to, it was ignoring the umpire again, which really stood out for me. Can you remember another player doing the same thing, I can't, the like of Andy Murray etc I would not be too surprised at, but it seems so out of character for him.

So yes I feel some form of corporal punishment is required.

Where did you tape it from!!!? It wasn't on British TV as far as I could see. I hope I didn't miss it!

I don't specifically remember a player refusing to shake hands with the umpire, but I probably wouldn't have been paying much attention anyway! Back when I used to watch Boris Becker, I remember Agassi refusing to shake hands with him at the US Open. All in all these things seem rather tame after you read some of the other things players get up to, such as on the "What are the worst player antics of all time?" thread:
