Seriously, arnaud got a good draw in wimbledon, he can't have this chance 2 tournaments in a row ! lol
And I don't think he's motived, he might be in a hurry to go back home and just forget tennis a little bit (plus, bruno's wedding in perspective etc...) before indoor tournaments.

Clément jouera Djokovic
Tennis - US Open

Les Français Arnaud Clément et Fabrice Santoro ont été mal servis au premier tour de l'US Open, dont le tirage au sort a eu lieu jeudi à New York, en héritant respectivement du Serbe Novak Djokovic (tête de série N.3) et de l'Américain Andy Roddick (N.8).

"Je ne pouvais pas plus mal tomber, a réagi Clément. J'ai l'habitude de bien me comporter ici mais là, je vais tout de suite avoir de quoi m'employer."
He said it can't be worse, he used to do well in USO but here he will immediately have to work


It's a pity, i think he had the level to do a third round but after the nice draw of Wim

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Allez Arno & Seb! You can do it!
I'm hoping I get coverage so I can set my alarmclock and support in front of my tv with sleepy eyes Arno is about the only one I get out of bed for at USO

BTW: yesterday the thing about the Olympics was still on the ATP website, so I sent them an email

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

Wow, and I thought Seb had a tough draw - then I looked for Arnaud!



Good luck! At least their matches might be broadcast...!

Yes, not sure you enjoy that much, but try to watch the beginning...

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

I always like a match between my fav's on tv, because at least one of them will make the next round That's always better than when they both lose
But only on tv, irl I wouldn't know who to cheer for

You have a point . But it's still better if they can both make it and face each other later, not this early .

True, facing each other in quarters or so is better than a first round and a final would be ideal

BTW: they changed Arno's Olympic result in his profile

I hope our local channel will broadcast that match. I'm sure I will be at both of them.

Re: US hardcourt season 2008

arnaud/mika will face lopez/verdasco in the first round. well i suppose any pair is likely to be easier than facing djokovic in the singles....

btw looking at the choice of night matches in the first two days, i don't think arnaud/djoko will get a night match

Apparently http://www.usopen.org/en_US/scores/s...schedule9.html an afternoon match but on Ashe

Hope he will take at least one set to Nole. For doubles, I don't know how they feel and Lopez/Verdasco is not a bad team.
