Wow, I didn't expect him coming back after the match he lost, sitting down with his laptop and writing a new blog entry! At least that's surely the last thing Arnaud would do
I'm becoming a fan of this guy, kom igjen Robert
A pity that they lost, but it's right, they need to play more together to acquire automatic reflexes.
Maybe I'll be a little bit better than Google:

Then they pulled away. And it was 36 degrees in the shadow, so rather different conditions again. But I played much better today, and the additional practice with Arnaud in the morning helped. It was so hot that the practice with Arnaud - who was running around like a scalded cat for every yellow thing that was coming to his side of the court - was rather tiring. But that was exactly what I was looking for. To make my body to step over the threshold, so to say. We didn't win this time, but the game was like night and day." Then he talks about the Davis Cup, his next tournament, this part is not very interesting.
"Yesterday at the match I got that thought and was about to pull a Niklas Kulti. According to legend, if Niklas didn't play his match well, he would kneel down after a lost point, raise up his hands with the racquet over his head, and throw it to the ground as an axe screaming "I'm the worst on the court! Agaiiiiiiiiiiiiin!!!!" He is so good, this Nicke!
Besides Dubai is an awfully good tournament. It was voted the best ATP500 last year. Hotels we live in are incredible. The club is just great, with a gym and a pool. Feels like a little holiday with some tennis. Though as usual you don't have time for relaxation or tourism. So actually it's not quite a holiday. In the morning there is a line of cars outside the hotel so you can just jump in and go to the tennis club. I like that. Good food, you can have a lunch and a dinner at the club if you want. Anyway it seems that in Dubai they haven't run out of money."
