The player's fans have become more fastidious?
Well, anyway I hope with a new thread we can get more things to discuss. For example, Arnaud's new shorts LOL
the thread name is too funny. not on the courts yet, but for the seb fans (i'm too tired to tell them in his thread) i saw him practicing with someone I didn't recognize and then with his coach. now without arnaud, he has no one to practice with and vice versa...but for their coaches. i'll let you know if i see them practicing together.
i saw no other french players on site.
yes, it's all
under my control
didn't you know!! kind of a 'weak' field to begin with and then murray and gonzales dropped out. i'll be looking for haas!
slow start, but it's something...
and i just looked at the doubles draw--the are no frenchies playing, so what mika said was true!
Thanks from me as a fan of Seb. I thought different coaches has never been a problem for Frenchies to practise together
Now I don't see why it should change something between Seb and Arnaud. Though it is sure that sharing Bruno they could spend more time together...
The field was prepared well, thanks again lol Keep your control like that
mika said after wimbledon that he and arnaud wouldn't play doubles again until the us open.
ok, today: arnaud practiced with mika. he appeared later wearing bright yellow/blue/green patterned board shorts with a turquoise shirt!
mika walked the long way around to the locker room without his shirt after practice.
then there was seb practicing with benneteau (he and his coach use the same hair bleach!). can't say that arnaud and seb's paths ever crossed....
oh and some much needed rain!
i know this isn't much, but it's only the beginning. Sorry i have no pix of those outrageous shorts!
Actually it was Arnaud himself who told about no doubles with Micka until US Open. Though it doesn't really matter. Now we just see that it was decided for sure and in advance so there must have been some real reason. Another mystery
According your description Arnaud's shorts seem to be indeed outrageous
I think last year I saw a picture from some North American tournament, maybe even Washington, too, where Arnaud was getting some special price and he wore a kind of outrageous shorts as well. Not really sure there were ones you've described but I'll try to find the picture. Perhaps it's another tradition: a special bandana, special shorts... lol
Good luck with the weather and again, thanks for your reports. Looking forward to images
