So you met a Lacoste's model, great !
Yes he's been hyperactive for his childhood, remember passing potes...
Yeah, so it's mostly merci to the Lacoste's model for stopping his eternal run and giving me a few minutes of his time
irina you're in stockholm ??
hope you're having a great time! (needless to say) but why aren't you in moscow
(not the city but for the players, i mean
I was and I had, thanks
I left my paradise on Tuesday afternoon.
Well, I just go to Stockholm for a few days every October, it has nothing to do with tennis - but since I anyway had some things to do near the tennis club I thought to come in and then I had an unreal luck to meet Arnaud.
As for Moscow, I had a lot of good luck regarding its players, too, but that's another story lol
Because she hates Moscow and loves Stockolm... maybe
He lost 4-6/7-6(5)/2-6 after 2:47h on court
Nieminen is not Renhquist so of course it was more tough
especially with a not very efficent serve and wasted break points
That's a pity but Nieminen was a too tough opponent for the second round, I believe this guy has pretty good chances to win the whole tournament.
As for the serve and wasted break points, I believe it's also the matter of the court. I don't know what's wrong with its surface, but almost everyone maybe except the local players (and I think Nieminen is also a sort of a local player) had a lot of problems with their serve. Then there is also the light problem. It's really dark on court, for those matches played before 5 PM it's more or less fine because there is additional light coming from windows, but the evening matches are being played in pretty bad light conditions. So no wonder Arnaud had to wear his glasses.
As for the rest, he seemed to be just fine and happy with everything. He believes he's in a good form (
), the injury doesn't bother him at all and so everything is almost perfect regarding his health. Coach absence also doesn't seem to bother him any much, he's going to care about it during the off-season or maybe in the beginning of the next year.
