. Is everything so bad for poor Arnaud? Though yes, one thing is already bad – that Mónaco plays Clément, so I see this is already the second round he examines my favorite Frenchies… Who’s next, Grosjean at RG?
Well, I don’t think there is a clear favorite in this encounter. Juan can concentrate on a single match and play his best, moreover it’s on his favorite clay and he has what to defend but Arnaud is Arnaud and he played a good match against Nadal in Monte-Carlo even despite a low motivation. So don’t know… Anyway I’ll be for Arnaud, sorry, - that’s why I’d also like Juan not to go too deep into the draw and better come to Munich in time
. By the way, I’m a bit late but congratulation with the clay courts time in Europe, Rose (and others who enjoy it)! Have a great time wherever you’re going to! Ehhh… loud voice for cheering and strong hands for holding your camera! lol
Thanks for your good wishes
I believe your Arnaud beat Juan earlier this year (though on hard not on clay) - so I think his greater experience will win through. And, as I said, - being selfish - I will not mind so much this time - Juan will just have to win every other match he plays this Spring to make up for it!!!!
