Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Actually Arnaud doesn't play much worse than Djokovic, but he makes so stupid mistakes at so important moments! He lost two last games on his serve, both times he was down 30-40, made a good strong serve and then he had the whole court for his own and made an unforced error

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Irina, thanks for the link. Unfortunatly it doesn't work that well.
You're watching, I guess arnaud gets mad about all these missed opportunities ? Djoko just has broken in third set...pffff
(these 2 last months, arnaud shoked a lot in important matches )

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Djokovic has just injured his leg He's got a freezing and a band, now will be getting back to the court.

Sorry that the link doesn't work properly. No, Marine, I wouldn't say Arnaud gets so mad, he rather gets disappointed At one point where he wasn't sure it was indeed out he crossed to the other side of the court to check it with his own eyes, but didn't ask for a call and wasn't arguing with the umpire.

Good, he learns to get calm, even without a coach.

Yes, it was some other Arnaud on the court today. Can you imagine he wasn't reacting at all?! During the match he was more like "Out, are you sure? Yeah? Oh well, alright. My bad then" - as if he was just playing tennis not really caring about the result It looked like he left all his emotions in Beijing

He is right, a few weeks off tennis is something he does need now.
Bonne nuit

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Thanks a lot for the comments.
Yes, losing at first round in the us open against the number 3 is nothing compare to Beijing tragedy. Micka told again yesterday how much they would this medal, and it's still painful to think to that, so, well, he lost early in NY, it's ok.
It seems nolwenn played her role of big supporter again today, but it didn't work this time.

As usually, if I compare with the other players, his interview is excellent.
Translation tomorrow (I need to sleep)

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

thanks for the reports everyone

arnaud of another year might have fought hard to give nole a battle... but the outcome would likely be the same

maybe he's now living with that (not a good sign, and it's in front of his supportive gf too)

at 'ugly beard'

ps here's a pic


i think the new glasses are even worse!

He's very honest with him. And as Guy Forget said, the deception of Beijing will always stay

For the coach, he will finish the year alone.

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Unlucky Arnaud.
So he didn't play too well? I didn't get to see it
Shame he couldn't convert the break points that he got. I guess that's the difference at the top
But hey, I suppose loosing against the number 3 with opportunities (even though he didn't make much of them ) isn't too bad?

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

I think he knew the potential was high that he was going to lose, so why look like a jerk in the process? Maybe?

Although Nolwenn is a recent addition to his box, it's weird to see it without Bruno.
