Nico is with Faurel in Hopman Cup because of that one coach situation, when i saw Faurel with Nico i knew that Pierre was not in Australia. It's a pity since it was a great group i hope FFT can find another caoch for our guys. Boris can't coach everybody and see all the match .
sad but expected.

chardy/clement will be a pair

that taller girl(?) is really possessive of him

And so young Berankis had a good end of 2010 with title in Helsinki and with the rythm of the qualies he looks like a tough opponent. Arno doesn't like that much playing guys he doesn't know. Pity their doubles match has been match postponed with the withdraw of Lopez it would have been a good training.

The match of Arno should be at the same time than Adrian so Boris will have to choose I zoomed on the last pic i posted and it looks confirmed that he goes back with Head racket.

Re: down under 2011 is even earlier this year lol

lost first match of the year 64 63

mannarino also lost, so coach is now freer, but perhaps not happier. they really should've played each other for everyone's benefit

poor arno he's been in brisbane waiting for a week. i hope the doubles go a little better.

Re: down under 2011 is even earlier this year lol

Flo also lost so Boris is totally free

They won in doubles 64 64 they will not play quarter before thursday. I read that Arno was leading 3-0 in first set vs Berankis so it means then he had lost 12-4. Not good, it looks according his stats that the problem has been his second serve as usual. Well he's not even sure to play next week if doubles go well. Losing Auckland points he should be around #120. It's tough to be a veteran

If you wan to see Arno in his new Lacoste outfit white and green version.

Re: down under 2011 is even earlier this year lol

good pics

i think he'll make it to auckland. after all, he's used to flying last minute

whether he'll stop falling to #120, is another matter

They only need to make semi to not be able to play Auckland qualies.

CLÉMENT SE CONSOLE AVEC LE DOUBLE

Battu en simple à Brisbane par un jeune Lituanien issu des qualifications, Richard Berankis, Arnaud Clément a enchaîné dans la foulée par un succès en double au côté du Slovaque Michal Mertinak. L'Aixois a du mal à fixer un partenaire en ce début d'année puisqu'il fera équipe avec Jérémy Chardy à l'Open d'Australie.

Re: down under 2011 is even earlier this year lol

Arno is ready to play the challengers he says he has a lack of energy with only one week of preparation because of DC. He doesn't want to forced on his body because of his age and he doesn't feel in the emergency.

He looks prepared in his mind to lost his Auckland points.

For indoor season he's in Zagreb list and Alt in Rotterdam and Marseille. Then i don't know what he ill choose to do.

He also posted to Facebook again.

Petit retour sur ma défaite en simple à Brisbane, je manquais encore de rythme et de vitesse au niveau des jambes mais cela va de mieux en mieux au fil des entrainements, pas de quoi s'inquiéter ! Je savais qu'avec une très courte préparation hivernale, cela allait être un peu plus difficile. Sinon je poursuis le tournoi en double avec un 2ème tour aujourd'hui puis entrainement ensuite, voilà le programme ! Arnaud

He seems quite calm about the situation and ready to stuggle in the ranking next weeks. Good luck to them in doubles even if it should prevent him to play next week.

I hope he'll do good in doubles too! And that he'll play Rotterdam qualies.

i know one has to be realistic, but giving up on the points before the tournament even starts is so negative

he does sound like he needs another few weeks of holiday... i don't think i'll run into him in a good mood
