Re: Back to Melbourne Park, AO

Yes, Fab has good records against Clement (4-2) but againt Malisse is the opposite (0-4). Time to change...
But before, he has to past the first round and that could be difficult. Allez

Re: Back to Melbourne Park, AO 07

The quote of the day on the FFT website: "C'est un peu le père qui arrive avec ses fils au troisième tour."
("It kind of feels like the father reaching the third round with his boys." Fabrice speaking of Gaël and Richard, both 20 y. old - "beyond the difference of age, "Battling Fab" is pretty close to Richard and especially Gaël." http://www.fft.fr/open-australie/2007/)

I just listened to his audio interview, he says he's been having some breathing problems for a few days, he doesn't feel very well. He's used to play with his back or his feet hurting, but it's very hard to play tennis when you can't breathe normally.
The next round will be tough since he always gets spanked by Davydenko, even when he's playing pretty well. He explains in great detail why Kolya is so hard to play, why he deserves to be the world number 3, etc. He says maybe he can use the high bounce in Melbourne.
