Re: *Olympic Games*

It will be against the russians Andreev/Davidenko The way they play and their powerfulness is not the most suitable to our guys I think. Regarding the interview on fft website,they seem good, Arnaud thinks he played very good today and he thinks Micka has shined lol

Re: *Olympic Games*

Thanks for all the updates everyone!

Good job Arnaud and Mika.

I now know how to see court1 and 2 through nbc.com. Is anyone else successful in getting a livestream yet? Hope so.

Wow.
And you were right, Via, he also added he is sad he leaves to the US so late.

There are heaps of photos of Murrays from the match but no single picture of the Frenchies I want to see Arnaud in his Olympic outfit!!!!!!!!

Re: *Olympic Games*

I didn't see him since the ceremony (on canal+ they had a special cam on the french delegation and they showed the tennismen everytime, especially arnaud and gael )

Re: *Olympic Games*

I've finally found two Beijing photos of this invi(n)sible guy on Oakley's website. They are poor, but at least it's something!
The first one is from a practice session, and the second is taken after (I think) that night match.

do you mean oakley has his latest photos, because he wears their glasses? now that's news to me

i only have access to a crappy online scoreboard. the only tennis that i've seen so far was like two minutes of hewitt v nadal (and then they switched back to the swimming). anyway arnaud always plays when i'm having dinner or something, so unless he's on tv proper, i won't be looking him up on the computer.

irina you have every right to support your countrymen cos this is the olympics (although if it's hewitt, you know which side i'll be on!)

anyway someone has said on another thread that andreev/davydenko is crap in doubles... but if they've advanced this far, they may not be any more crappier than clement/llodra.

Re: *Olympic Games*

They won in third even if the match was in their hands in the second

It 1:00 AM in Beijing and after such a tough match I hope they won't be too tired !

Re: *Olympic Games*

ILS SONT EN DEMIE !!!!!!!!!!!

oh p.... j'ai suivi tout le match sur le web et j'en peux plus, j'ai failli faire une attaque tellement c'était stressant, et en plus le live est pourri et pas précis...enfin bref ils devaient gagner facile en 2 sets et je sais pas ce qui s'est passé après.
J'ai qu'une crainte, c'est la fatigue (il est 1h du mat la-bas !) et surtout l'épaule de micka !!!!!!!!

oops: SORRY I'm so tired and excited I wrote in french.

WELL, they have to be very tired it's late, they finished at 1.00am, not good for tomorrow, and I fear for micka's shoulder.

ALLEZ LES GARS just one match and it's a medal !!!!!!!!!

(ça faisait lgpts que j'avais pas été aussi stressée pour un match, je suis dans un état !!! lol)
