2008 tourneys

entry lists have just come out for adelaide, chennai, doha...

... but arnaud is nowhere to be found

all his frenchie friends (richard, seb, paulo, benneteau, gilles simon, jo jo) are turning up at adelaide (obviously the french don't want hewitt to win so easily ) and mika is on the top of the alt list too. somehow arnaud won't have returned from his holiday yet. i had to read it again and again to believe it.

Yes, why ???

I wonder why, though, because he has generally played both in the past.

Don't say that

I'm wondering if he will be back in Halle and Rosmalen next year

Re: 2008 tourneys

I should follow someone else, because seb will retire at the same time I guess (or before). I wondered how i was going to do after sampras retiring, and by chance, one day of january 2001, two young frenchies played each other in semi in Melbourne...
But I don't know who could make me follow tennis as much after them. I will continue to watch tennis, I love that, but...

You will retire. Good answer. lol Gasquet? Don't mind him or any of the other frenchies, in fact. And I've got a soft spot for Boredo and he has a few more years.

Don't you think that Arnaud and Seb will live on! There's always the Tour of Champions, etc., just like Pete? Maybe they'll coach some up and coming French kid or even captain DC. Or maybe they'll have a tennis camp for people like us...

I don't think they will play on tour of champions etc... but I imagine them (especially arnaud, who's very at ease at tv) as commentators.
