Thanks for your report Via At least you saw his smiling face We're OK he's not so bad but he's losing matches

Yes for sure the bad draw will come Well often he's better in big matches than against average players in average tournament

Next round of doubles is more tough vs Bopanna/Quesreshi. First match on court 6 tomorrow.

Maybe the person who told me this was exaggerating, like most non-Arnaud fans do when it comes to his behavior.

I don't think it's a joke... I guess it just cools down a lot at night, that happens in more countries during summer. Hot during the day, cold at night, no?
who did you hear that from? i think i pretty much knew all the few spectators on that court that evening, not personally of course, but rather in 'categories'... and you bet there literally wasn't anyone on my side

he's pretty much his usual self, not the worst that i've seen. i'm used to the 'norm' now. as you can tell from the reaction on GM on every thread that has his name on it, there are many others who are used to bashing him regardless. so no comment.

I have a question...u said "cold"...it's a joke ???? lol
thanks (and you don't know the worst part of my luck yet )

yes it was cold for a summer evening, not as cold as what you're having of course! all my fingertips were numb towards the end of the match, i don't like cold much. the daytime max was about 21 deg C that day, i won't call that hot either.

Thanks for report)
for me, once seppi picked up his game and broke serve in the 3rd, arno didn't have much of a chance afterwards. i could only hope for seppi to go off again, slipping on something or like that but evil wishes usually aren't granted

yes that's the bottom line, winning/losing. that's why everything sounds like an excuse when one loses.

Nooooo....
They were winning 4-1 in the third, but lost 4-6..I didn't see how it passed so bad, because my channel was off after 4-1, and they were quite dominating after losing in the first.
No Mika vs Arnaud in the next round

Re: down under 2011 is even earlier this year lol

oh well. i can't say i had high expectations of the doubles. i had the chance to go back to melbourne next week, but i reckoned they wouldn't make it to second week so i had already cancelled everything. for arno it's time to pack up and leave another year and we don't know what will happen.

i have the funny and odd pics up in my blog http://viastennisphotos.smak.co/vtpb...rnaud-clement/ so that we can recall the happier moments in melbourne!
