Re: 2009 season down under

Happy for the win. A win is a win, whatever the "tennistically" lol

I just love his itw. A bit rude with himself, as usually, but he's so sincere and funny. Especially when he said "j'aurai vraiment très peu de chances de gagner, à moins s'il passe vraiment complètement à côté " LOL
"A moi d'éléver mon niveau de jeu, et si je ne le fais pas, je ne gagnerai pas..mais...y'a pas de raison que je joue pas bien ! "lol..." c'est vrai ?? ah bon ??? je savais pas du tout, j'suis un peu à l'ouest, j' suis pas très potins... "

About ivanovic & verdasco's break-up: ""oh really ??? I didn't know...oh well... I don't follow gossips"...
Since the last year he doesn't like people's magasines, but before, he used to read all these magazines...

Re: 2009 season down under

It seems that it has been close. It means no more MS in doubles for him and for us? Poor ranking since ages in doubles for him

For singles, Verdasco as so confident since DC final and Arnaud serves so poorly but who knows otherwise hello German challenger.

Re: 2009 season down under

On WLT http://www.welovetennis.fr/open-aust...les-vestiaires Marco says that they didn't play very well but they fought. Arnaud was not supposed to high his level ? In the locker room, Arnaud asked to Roger if he had cut his hair and Marco joked about him "No they fell alone"

Re: 2009 season down under

A stupid question I use to ask too

Court 6, à partir de 11h00 (01h00, HF)
Patty Schnyder (SUI/n°14) - Virginie Razzano (FRA) : 2-0
Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP/n°21) - Julie Coin (FRA) : 0-0
Arnaud Clément (FRA) - Fernando Verdasco (ESP/n°14) : 1-0
Un double


(ugh, in the case where he loses, I wonder if he'll be back to paris on saturday evening ? There is a concert in Bercy where I'll be, and I'm just thinking he could be here too...)

Re: 2009 season down under

no doubt he's in a hurry to catch the earliest plane back home. i have instructions for my sister (who's going to melbourne tomorrow) just in case, but now they are not necessary

have fun star-spotting at the concert, marine!

Re: 2009 season down under

The scores The audio with always some jokes http://www.fft.fr/open-australie/2009/?ID=4579 He says that physically he surely didn't recover totally of his 5 sets' match but anyway Verdasco was really better than him. He says nices things about the game of Ferdando and the fact he didn't let him come back. About himself he thinks he has still some works to do physically to be better and to play some matches in a row. He didn't take pleasure on court but was happy to be there, it was the place he wanted to be.

I've been told he was there
I didn't see him of course, among the crowd of 17 000 persons in Bercy but I was sure he would be there because he loves "the enfoires (a big and famous charity concert which gets together 35 of the most famous french singers every year in january) and because nolwenn is part of the show
Funny to think I was in bercy, not for tennis, but he was there though ! lol

Re: 2009 season down under

Cool!
It must be a nice idea to know that you and Arno were at the same place
But... if Nolwenn was part of the show, I guess he was there as a VIP
Apart from knowing Arno was there, how was the concert?
I've never heard of it before
