I posted an interview of Llodra in his forum. he speaks about Arno few times i will try the summary later
Mika said that in september during the USO he said to Arno he wanted to play the OG woth him but the federation decided to make him play with Jo and Jo wants to play with. He says he felts sorry for sorry who is like is brother. Well this is what he says
About the DC captain the journalist says that it's a kind of mafia tradition who let the players to chose the captain Llodra says players give their opinion bt then federation make the choice. They already talk together and two names break and one especially. He and Tsonga are OK on one name but Llodra says many things can happened will the guy be OK available in his life that's will be complicated. L'equipe put in the brackets that he would be Arno but the description is not Arno
. It sounds that the fav of the players is more like someone who has an activity aside tennis and a family life
. L'equipe is again doing lobby for Arno I think
but for me players have a another name on top of their list
About the interview by WLT posted page before. Arno says that his decision of retired at the end of the year is not yet done at 100%. many things will go across the decision like the proposition he could have for post tennis player carreer. We see that he's interested by the Dc so hopefully he will not be too much touched if he's not choosen. About the end Arno says for the moment he's playing and preparing like past years but if he make the decidion to retire the end of year will surely be more emotionnal.
