Tokyo - Olympic Games , July 23-August 8

HL&Co	- Jeux Olympiques - Japon - Tokyo

Postponed of one year because of pandemic, the Olympic Games of Tokyo finally take place this summer.

As a reminder, tennis made its return to this competition in 1988 in Seoul under the leadership of Mr Philippe Chatrier (President of the FFT in 1973, of the ITF in 1977 and member of the IOC in 1988).

Henri Leconte took part in the Seoul and Barcelona Olympics:

"I remember a magical and mytic moment! In Barcelona, I attended the opening ceremony: I felt like a child who had stars in his eyes! It was exceptional!!

In the Olympic Village I met mega stars like Earven Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan (basketball Dream Team), Carl Lewis, Lindford Christie (100m winner)... ...
Among the French there were "les Barjots", bronze medalists in handball, Marie-Josée Perec (gold in 400), Sébastien Flûte (gold in archery) and all the others! It was really fabulous!!!
Marc Rosset and Jennifer Capriati won the singles tournament.
Even if we have more often the opportunity in tennis to represent and win for our country with the Davis Cup, the Olympic Games remain apart.

Good luck to all athletes for these Olympic Games which are very special because of the health crisis. Enjoy these exceptional moments!!"

Melbourne - Australian Open , February 1st-21

HL&Co - Melbourne - Australie - tennis

Naomi Osaka succeeds Sofia Kenin and becomes more and more important as the future great patroness of women's tennis: a very successful player and a woman with convictions. Now she is only missing real rivals to have beautiful duels in the coming years.

Congratulations to her opponent, Jennifer Brady, 25-year-old American, for her great tournament until the final.

Confinement, quarantine, injuries, Novak Djokovic is the one who best managed this special Australian Open. He confirms once again that he is in his own backyard in Australia by winning the title for the ... 9th time!

With 18 Grand Slam titles won, he is close to Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer, winners of 20 titles each. The numbers are almost scary as they are incredible: let's take full advantage of these three outstanding champions as long as they're out there breaking one record after another.

Daniil Medvedev made a very nice tournament even if the final was too hard for him.
Him, Stefanos Tsitsipas (winner in 1/4 of Nadal in 5 sets after being led two sets to nothing!), Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem...the NextGen shows up but still can't manage to dethrone Nadal, Djokovic and to a lesser extent Federer who will take over the racket only at the beginning of March.

Too bad for the moment that no Frenchman is able to come and titillate the best...

HL&Co - Équipe

For several days now, the daily newspaper l'Équipe has been off the newsstands following a social plan. Henri's reaction:

"I am shocked, saddened...how can we be taken away from l’Équipe, our sports bible?! We cannot live without it, it is not conceivable to deprive ourselves of it, this journal is part of our daily life!

Like many people, I grew up with l'Équipe: every morning I like to take time to read the results, the reports, the interviews, to discover new athletes, different sports… It is my ritual.

I've had many articles, some of them front page too. I kept some. Preciously. Especially of course the victory of Lyon. Sometimes the analyses were harsh, sometimes they were laudatory, sometimes they were exaggerated and so? It's normal, everyone has their own point of view...and leaving them indifferent would not have pleased me.

For all these reasons, l'Équipe must not disappear. My heart goes out to you and support you in this difficult time. Let's all stand together and save this daily rendezvous for all sports lovers."

He will also tell us why he loves this beautiful country so much.

These chronicles will be posted on Henri's social networks (Facebook link and Instagram link).

Back on the courts

After a very "special" year 2020 punctuated by a succession of confinements / deconfinements / re-confinements / curfew due to the coronavirus, all wish to return to a more normal life and in particular to rediscover the pleasure of playing sport and seeing tournaments once again.

Hostilities begin with the qualifications for the Australian Open. They will take place in Dubai for women and Doha for men in mid-January. Then on to Australia for the ATP Cup followed by the Australian Open.

This will be followed by a European and an Asian tour. No Indian Wells tournament planned but Miami maintained.

Let's keep our fingers crossed so that this beginning of season can take place as planned!

Happy New Year 2021 everyone!
