personally, i am not shocked, just disappointed at him losing all the time.

Mhm, and no fun at all when your home tournament, even though it's not on clay and has solid prize money, a good number of points and offers for players all the best conditions, is of that second kind. Geography and those unofficial sums play their role too, maybe there is also a couple of other reasons

As for Kohlschreiber. Well, I've seen a few articles, sounds like a better and more aggressive baseline game and some luck at the important points made his match. Nothing surprising? Perhaps, but if it's the level Arnaud is going to show on clay this year then it's quite disappointing.
Btw, Arnaud was indeed playing in orange that match.

i know we are spoiled in sydney, we never pay those stars quite enough for their favour!!! lol

anyway i do hope arnaud/seb will do well.... meaning *win* though what's best for arnaud is probably more clay practice. and learn a thing or two from seb if he hasn't already!

A bloody battle
Hooray, Arnaud has finally won a match I believe he still has things to learn from Seb, so that's great they'll play one or maybe a few more official matches together, on same side of the court.

Re: BMW Open

good boys

it's time like this that we do need a 'global fan network' to give us at least some photos. i bet no one will find any, especially it's -only- doubles. but i guess german fans aren't particularly fond of sebastien
