Sorry to say that but I didn't happen to meet Arnaud in Stockholm. I was leaving in Monday evening and Arnaud and Micka were coming in the late Monday evening, so no chance. But at least they won a title in Metz. And I have finally got enough time to enjoy the city!

Looks like today they won their first round in doubles beating Butorac and Sa (he is such a cutie!!!) 3/6 6/3 11/9

I saw the qualifying match of Mirnyi which he lost and a lot of Max in general, I think Arnaud shouldn't get a lot of troubles playing against him in singles.

Well, just hope the Frenchies will have a good time in Stockholm.

Re: Stockholm

great to hear back from you! looks like everything is going to plan for you, that's fantastic. too bad about not seeing arnaud and mika, we didn't anticipate it's the doubles that was holding them up.

who else did you see, did you work that camera hard?

Thanks for the report. Should I rename this thread "Stockholm: Under Hangdog's control"? lol

I hope you're having the great time you expected. Look forward to your postings!

Re: Stockholm

As it was predicted, 6/3 6/2 against Mirnyi and Arnaud is moving to the next round to face there a Swedish WC called Ryderstedt. Seems I saw this guy practising on Monday but then I thought he was someone's sparring partner Arnaud just should not lose his concentration and everything will be alright.

Well, you remember I mentioned before leaving I wouldn't be surprised if Arnaud goes for a title in Metz. I relaxed a bit when I saw the singles draw but anyway there still were doubles... So not everything went so according to my plan, you know, but the main thing is that I got back at home after all. Some friends of mine have got great doubts I'll be back to Russia after a trip like this lol

As for who else, in fact I saw almost all seed players and a number of other guys. But I cared mostly about getting some info about Metz rather than taking pictures so my camera was quite relaxed. Though today I've had a look at the photos, somehow there is a few not bad.

lol Unfortunately, in my case it's more a kind of "out-of-control" since I could catch no Frenchies. So at the best I can only provide you with some info about Arnaud's rivals...

Re: Stockholm

yes lucky for him, ferrer has gone missing and he should get an easy 2nd round.

i suppose it isn't bad experience at a tourney to be able to see most of the guys... but it's quality not quantity that matters, isn't it. there was a time when i would be pretty down not finding arnaud at a tournament that i had planned a long time for! anyway, good to hear you're still alive and well

Re: Stockholm

Arnaud had to work hard to win against local boy Ryderstedt 76(2) 36 63. Hope Irina was there .

He'll have to play either Karlovic or PimPim...

Later tonight Arnaud and Mika play doubles vs Paukku/Prpic.

Re: Stockholm

Well, it will be Karlovic for the 4th time this year. PimPim pulled out with an illness.
