anyway i'd better stop wasting my time again with my ramblings...
May I continue this mission?
When I noticed this thread’s title for the first time I have been rather surprised and not glad to see such thing at all. But after learning the objective of its creation I thought that, true, it’s much better to have a soul thread for discussions on this topic rather than debate over it again and again around the whole Forum. And if I were a moderator of this board I’d even move the rest of the certain posts from other threads in here because frankly I was quite annoyed and fed up going through Indian Wells discussion and see… nothing pleasant actually. But thanks everyone who’s explained their opinions over there, I got a lot of new facts
So thank you a lot, Via, for creating this thread and the poll! It still looks a bit unusual for me but I think I’ll get used to it soon. I guess this is the only Forum on this huge message board which has a thread to discuss, roughly speaking, how bad our boy can be and how much we hate him sometimes lol
And after all, now there is at least one endless topic which can be discussed forever.
As you me, I think I’ve got my own opinion on this subject and now whatever bad I hear about Arnaud’s behaviour it won’t change it so much, unless I see some especially rude actions with my own eyes. And what I think is the next. Firstly, Arnaud is a tennis player and tennis is a mental game where a lot depends on psychology too. I’m not going to defend anyone but Arnaud is not only and not even the worst example, that’s a fact. Then of course it’s not so nice to go to some tournament and support a guy who behaves himself like higher mentioned examples say
But first of all it’s a problem and a big bug of Arnaud himself, we all know normally he is not supposed to win matches being in such mood – and those losses touch him much more than us as I may suppose. And if he gives his excuses sometimes then he realizes that he shouldn’t behave himself that way – and you know often it’s not easy at all to approach a person you insulted and admit you were wrong. Finally, poor behaviour is the worst thing I’ve even heard about Arnaud, if it’s his worst habit, you know, it’s possible to live and handle with it…
So the only thing I want to say – and I guess I’d better indeed say it in one phrase and not wrote compositions here
– is that I can somehow understand Arnaud (e.g. I’m absolutely not sure that if I were a tennis player I would be a nice and sweet one like Grosjean) and get him the way he is.
I was a ball boy at the French Open and in oter tournaments where Arnaud was.
He was horrible, I hear many insults for nothing.
Je regrette beaucoup ce qui s’est passé avec toi!
But well, at least it was a great example of how a tennis player shouldn’t behave himself.
Et dire qu'il a aussi été ramasseur de balle !!!
Oui, c'est incroyable... Ou peut-être c’est là que se situe le problème et où gît le lièvre? Une vengeance? lol
anyone ever saw a ball kid refuses to take instructions??? being rude to players and officials?? lol
Hmmm, maybe Arnaud should meet some nervous ball boy one day, what do you think?
