Re: Indoor Season 2008

I live Metz and I stays with my son with the match of Arnaud! he was not aggressive with the umpire! some write silly things ! !!!during the match I had the feeling that Arnaud seemed a little still constrained by his wound and not really given maybe marriage of Saturday!!!! BECAUSE it had the tired face!

Arnaud was applauded cordially by the children and signed autographs!


on the other hand ihis adversary is not sympathetic nerve!

well i'm not surprised at the poor result, first of all it's a continuation of his recent results, and then he might still be suffering from hangover from the wedding, so that's my excuse for him.

as usual of course mika will carry the doubles but 3 titles in a row... yeah

Re: Indoor Season 2008

It's a pity that Arnaud lost to Rik. The match went as I feared it might go... Better luck for them in doubles!

Micka said today in the newspaper that's they want to win Metz, Lyon and Bercy in a row this season.
Well, you can't say they don't have ambition

Yes but it's only words beacause on court it isn't the same thing
They lost first set in their match against the other top french double team with two break on Arnaud serve but Micka had have also to save 4 break point on his serve. Even the double can't consoled Arnaud .

Their second set and their super tie-break was more impressive. Congrats guys.

Re: Indoor Season 2008

They won their semi 11-9 in the super tie-break after saving 2 match points according to the FFT website. The final will be the remake of last year. I have followed a bit the beginning and they were 1 set down and a break down in the second when I stop to follow.(Micka was just broken )

For Stockholm Arnaud gets again a qualifier but we can notice that a player like Juan Monaco plays the qualies and we know that a bad ranked player is not a reason to be optimist and he doesn't play double Micka will play it with Santoro in Moscow

In the short FFT audio, Arnaud said he's not yet at 100% and he added that's today Gicquel and Ascione was maybe better but play every week together helped them.

Re: Indoor Season 2008

They won 5-7/6-3/10-8 The polish seems to have really well played today. They lost only one point on their serve in first set and Micka & Arnaud got only one BP but they converted it . In the super tie-break our guys needed 4 match points to conclude.

They had a lot of chance this week because they won their three last matches winning less points than their opponents.In the local newspaper Arnaud said today that he'll be happy to not go in Shanghai this year prefering to go in holidays at the same period and he doesn't want go back in China this year So we can conclude that's he won't spend his holidays in beijing
Quote:
Je serai bien content de ne pas aller à Shanghaï et de pouvoir partir en vacances.» Arnaud Clément s'amuse. Et il est heureux. Car la victoire, hier, face aux amis Gicquel et Ascione, fut diablement longue à se dessiner. Une victoire qui donne cependant du baume au cour à une équipe qui a sans doute encore dans la tête l'amère défaite pour la médaille de bronze de Pékin. Arnaud Clément persiste : «Oui, je serai bien content de ne pas retourner une deuxième fois en Chine cette année.» Mais si le pays de Mao avait donné le mal de mer aux tenants du titre de l'Open de Moselle, le vent messin leur a redonné de la vigueur.«Le fait qu'on joue ensemble depuis longtemps a sans doute fait la différence », analyse Clément au sujet d'une rencontre où il sauva quand même deux balles de match. La survie en poche, les deux compères avaient déjà la tête tournée vers la difficile finale qui s'annonce aujourd'hui. «Ce sera un match compliqué. On les connaît, ils sont en course pour le Masters et voudront sans doute prendre leur revanche. Ce sont eux les favoris, et ils jouent extrêmement bien en ce moment.» Pour mémoire, les Français avaient battu les Polonais en deux petits sets (6-1, 6-4) lors de la finale l'an passé. Cette fois, ils joueront en lever de rideau avant la grande finale Mathieu-Tursunov. On ne pouvait pas rêver mieux comme ouverture.

Re: Indoor Season 2008

I only find this pic on the ATP website http://www.atptennis.com/1/en/doubles/



Nothing important in the audio almost the same than in the ATP report.

Re: Indoor Season 2008

I didn't see the match, only the interview a few minutes after, they were in a good mood, arnaud said some jokes to the journalist "in 2003... when I still was a single player...lol" etc...
The ceremony was funny too, it seems mika (yes, mika !) thanked Nolwenn for supporting them in final. LOL
Arnaud tries to be discret, not his friend !

well...3 wins in a row...it's still possible.
But Metz was the easiest of all.

His interviews, even short, always are interesting, he's natural, honnest sometimes funny.
