Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

Arnaud doesn't play tomorrow (sunday), it's a good thing. I don't like the opening on sunday.

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

I don't remember, Ram is his "former" partner or it's Erlich (I mix them ! lol)

Well, good, if he plays tomorrow (and wins... LOL) he'll play wednesday.
But's:
1/ It's not sure he'll won
2/ Nor sure he'll play wednesday
3/ wednesday it will rain (d'après meteo france)

ugh... do you think I have some chance to see him ?

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

Maybe he will play in doubles wednesday I don't know if the our twin sisters saw him but he was playing a exhibition set saturday i found some pics and i think it was vs Roger Vasselin. http://www.flickr.com/photos/5045220...7623993949935/ Ram is the former partner of mika at the beggining of the year they stop playing together at the start of clay season. Erlich was the partner of arno in AO.

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

if he's in nadal's quarter, when it reverts back to two halves on wed/thurs, he should be playing thursday

the RG schedule page is very comprehensive http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/about/schedule.html

if the doubles is scheduled for wed, it might just be a better match to watch! lol

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

We did see the set on the tv screens inside RG. We had to wait in line for tickets and when we were inside, the set already started, so we couldn't get on the court anymore. We didn't see him after the match. We walked around a little and left again, cause we had a meeting with a friend. It was nice to have seen RG in real life, it looks great, even if it was really really busy Saturday.

He won the first set 6/3

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

He lost again a tie-break while he was up **5-4 he was also 2-0 up at the start of that set. Maybe he missed his chance for the match by losing ths set. It's not great tennis but Dolgo improves and plays better and better.

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

I'm not that negative. He was down 4/1 in this tie break then went back to 5/4, but ...
I have to admit I watch richard/murray at the same time (great matc ! wow richard makes me happy !) so I'm not concentrated in the match of arnaud, and it's not great quality on streaming of course.

Bruno is not there, I would have wished him to be in RG at least !

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

A fifth set both are tired but for the moment Dolgopolov seems better and the game of arno is more physic. The number of dropshots of the ukrainian make running and running old arno

Re: Add fuel to the fire aka Clay Season

Dolgo played his best tennis in the two last sets while Arno was making more faults. At the end Arno was totally exhausted but fight with his heart cos he could have been a bagel. Arno would need to close that in three cos the ukrainian was tensed at the start of the match and he would need also a better serve otherwise and he went often at the net by choice or to run after this dropshots For sure he's deceived by this first round exit but his level was not enough good even if the desire and the heart were here

Watching the stats Dolgo hitted 82 winners against 32 for arno
