Cool 2007 plans

i just peek into seb's forum, and there's the news that arnaud will be playing in adelaide (since they are now sharing bruno as coach so apparently they will try to syncronise their schedules)

i wish seb's fans would've told me earlier, but i'm happy to hear some news anyway

Hi!!

Yes, he wasn't sure wether he'll be playing Adelaide this year because he's not very keen on the RR system... but finally, his 1st tournament will be in Adelaide

Oh and for those who are interested... if you live near Belgium.. Nono will be in Ostende along with belgian players Kris Vliegen and Malisse and Robredo to play an exo on Dec 2nd and 3rd

good news for fans nearby.

all these exos make you wonder if players really have a problem with a long season though i mean, as long as they make money without having to try too hard, they can play as much as fans demand!!!

Yes that's true, I was really surprised that he ll be playing an exo... but they should be offered quite a lot of money to do it!! But it's only 2 matchs so... not really tiring... I will be curious to know how much money the organisators has to play to have those players Dunno wether I'm going or not... will be a lot of money only for a week end, and tickets are expensive for an exo 30€/day for only 2 matchs....

phewww... we didn't know how close we were to losing arnaud from adelaide !!!!! lol

as for the exo, well perhaps he should donate some to sponsor loyal fans like you to go to see him! it's true, exos are always more expensive everywhere, similar for davis cup too, so much to pay for so few matches.

esther what have i done this time?

why adelaide? for memorial drive, or barossa valley??

i can't go, dear.... i'd be keen to see more of richie and (a-c's) nole too not just arnaud but i'd be happy if i could just make it to homebush bay. come over to sydney, it would be more fun and you'd meet more fans too

looks like carofr and esther could meet.... are you from france?

Re: 2007 plans

Can someone explain me what's the " RR system" ??
(C'est les poules ??)

If it's what I mean, I read Arnaud's opinion about that in l'Equipe, I can answer, but I need to be sure I don't confuse with something else.

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

I like your idea Via on how to spend Nono's money

Adelaide draw is really interesting... well at least for me but one friend of mine (Caro) is going to Adelaide so that's cool she could watch Nole for me and give me reports and details lol Then, I have friends going to the OZ open... so Ill be updated lol

Via, I think that Nole and nono may go to Sydney... so sure you'll be able to catch them there.... lucky you

Re: 2007 plans

people (like me) have been debating forever on general about this new Round Robin (RR) system for atp tournaments.

i have yet to find any comments from arnaud. he isn't a 'top player' so his opinion is not valuable

but if he had seriously re-considered coming to adelaide, a tournament that he has supported over the years, then i know enough how he feels. but then, notre nono, tends to be a bit stubborn about most things anyway

Re: 2007 plans

I live next to Belgium and wanted to go to Oostende, but I can't.
Have to work both days, because people have to buy presents for the holidays . Why can't they do that on monday?
