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.
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?
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.
Thanks for the report. Should I rename this thread "Stockholm: Under Hangdog's control"
I hope you're having the great time you expected. Look forward to your postings!
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...
