Re: On The US Open 2010 Road

it's good news to know 1) he intends to play next year 2) he should have the points to enter AO directly, cos he should be defending his auckland points the week before

arno fans present in melbourne really should celebrate the 10 years with him, it's not usual that someone still comes back after 10 years.

as for the fast surfaces... hewitt (with a sort of similar style) plays better on fast too. maybe it's something to do with how they tend to get all the balls back, and the fast surface helps to give their own shots more pace.

Re: On The US Open 2010 Road

There is a good article about the smart game proposed by Arno against Fish here http://straightsets.blogs.nytimes.co...-than-a-score/

For Older Players, 30 Is More Than a Score

And what about Arnaud Clement and Patty Schnyder yesterday? Mardy Fish got all the glory for outlasting Clement in five sets on Armstrong. The home crowd chanted “Go Fish” and treated Clement like an intruder. But the small Frenchman played the far more fascinating game. The 32-year-old Clement, who has modeled himself on Andre Agassi, is a classic counter-puncher. And in recent years, he has had to adjust to the trials of aging by developing a more cunning style, full of spin and flair. He now molds shots, going inside out to set up a slicing, down-the-line backhand. Intent on saving energy and neutralizing more powerful opponents, he takes balls off the short hop, cutting down on the distance he needs to run, controlling the pace. Unlike Fish, he doesn’t have a killer serve. His serve spins in, deceptively. He’s got guile and touch on his side, producing more complex tactics than most younger men attempt these days.

Clément * Paire * Gasquet
Djokovic * Mahut * Llodra * Tsonga * Dimitrov * Chardy * Simon * Federer
