Wonder if he'll pull out of the challenger? He is seeded #1 the last time I checked.


I don't know, seems like it would be a perfect place to spend Valentine's Day!!
I read in the newspaper that Paris is the city where most British couples break up, because they have too high expectations from this so called romantic city
So I would rather go with my imaginary boyfriend to Aix en Provence, I loved it there in the summer

ps. Another stupid thing if this flight gets cancelled, last time I met a very cute flight attendant, I'm hoping he would also be scheduled on the same flight again

Re: Open 13

I'm still at the airport, checked in and waiting to board in about 11 minutes
Nothing is cancelled yet

The flight to Las Palmas is delayed, but a delay is always better than a cancellation

edit: Can you guys tell I'm bored?
Checking the airport website all the time and reporting back here

Re: Open 13

You're not boring at all, it's pretty funny to follow your weather problems at airtport.
Don't worry, you won't have these problems in Marseille, only a strike could perturbate your back flight...lol

ps: I didn't know British were so desperate to expect so much of the french capital to settle. lol

Re: Open 13

poor kezzi paparazzi!! has arnaud officially pulled out of the doubles? he won't go far anyway if he has injury worries

a lot of other frenchies are still around, maybe even bruno will hang around (knowing that it isn't really arnaud being her target )

i suppose valentine or no valentine, these guys are seasoned pros and they are used to working when there's work

edit: yes they are out of the doubles, julien and paulo had already played another pair and won last night.

Well, it took us a long time, but we just arrived at our hotel
I was really happy when I heard we only had a 20 minute delay at the airport. In Marseille we had to wait 45 minutes for the last shuttle bus to take of But I don't care, the important thing is that I'm here

Maybe we'll have to turn around or circle above NL if we can't land at Eindhoven airport on the way back

I also didn't know, I didn't have such high expectations of Paris when I went there the first time. Just wanted to see the Eiffel Tower, dídn't care with who

Yeah, really bad luck that he's injured this year

I know, but Arno is my sister's target We will have fun anyway, Mika is still in singles

Re: Open 13

I didn't watch them, and today we're not at the tournament yet, we did a little shopping this morning
We didn't see Arno yesterday and we're leaving for the tournament now. Hopefully we'll meet Simon today, we saw him play yesterday, it was a really good match Don't think I can watch his match this evening, the last metro already goes back at 21:00
It's really early, in NL everyone says the public transport is really good in France, but where I live the busses drive until 0:00

Re: Open 13

The transports are very good in paris, and the last metros go at 0.00 .
Marseille's metro is not important, people take car or bus.

It seems that he's injured...
Or he needs time to institute legal proceedings against Voici Magazine
Or he wants to spend more time with his gf

Re: Open 13

He's injured (or almost) and I suppose he's not that much motived by a challenger in Besançon.
