btw does arnaud have any response to being left out (with mika) from the dc team?
He's too old
no they just built a new team and don't need 2 doubles players. Arno is no more an alternative in single so he's out
Others players can play the doubles & play also in single if it needs.

Au grand dam de Schuttler.
The luggages of Arnaud are the running gag of the year
For the loss 2-6/3-6 against Andy today nothing special to say because he's just a really better player than arno
From the baseline andy clearly dominated and was very helped by his serve especially in second set. Arno made some troubles on andy's serve in first set but as arno worked hard to have the BP andy saved them by aces or unreturnables serves. It a logical win for Muzza
From ATP website
ATP World No. 4 Andy Murray was in strong form on Wednesday evening as he defeated Arnaud Clement of France 6-2, 6-3 to reach the quarter-finals of the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships, an ATP World Tour 500 tennis tournament.
A double fault from Clement handed Murray an early break advantage at 2-1 in the first set and the Scot broke for a second time in the seventh game before closing out a one-set lead. A break in the third game of the second set put Murray well on the way to victory, which he secured with a second break of serve in the ninth game – a cross-court forehand winner wrapping up the win after 83 minutes.
"I dictated the match with my serve," said Murray. "I didn't give him many chances after my first couple of service games, and I obviously managed to get into a lot of his service games and put a bit of pressure on him and he made some mistakes."
