Cool Passing Potes

I've read the book now, or better yet the translation, thanx to Esther.. It's really amazing how they got friends.. It really must have been hard for Arnaud.. I know I would have felt really bad if I was in his shoes in the first few years of their friendship. I didn't know Seb was this hard, but on the other hand I do understand a little bit that he didn't like to share his coach (almost like a father) with a stranger.. But I'm glad they can get along so very well now, coz I think they are really funny together.. Would love to spend a day with them to see how they really are!! OR LONGER OF COURSE!!

Some parts were really sad, like the about the 26th of january Australian Open (I don't know which year exactly) but the year they had to fight each other in Semies.. And how about it was so hard for Arnaud to accept Seb's attitude..

I do wonder about the pictures.. I wish they would sell it here in Holland too, but I guess not.. I'm not sure.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to Esther, you are an sweetie for sending me the contents of the book in English.

I haven't purchased the book yet, and I have mentioned this before, but try the Canadian Amazon if any of you are interested in buying it.
I'm going to give my Visa card another bashing (after buying my weeks worth of AO tickets). Can't wait!

I must admit I looked at the one titled 'arnaud with baguette' first ,I was just curious you understand

What is Seb doing with his knee on the one with the scary shoes?That looks a bit dodgy that one
