open de moselle (Metz)

2 round:

Richard won 6/3 4/6 7/5 vs Dupuis
Gael Monfils beat Malisse (who retired in the second set)

omg, it's national competition or what, so many french players in the draw
Paulo, Serra, Haehnel, Simon, Giquel, Mutis, Mahut, Arnaud, Benneteau, Carraz, Richard, Ascione, Dupuis, Patience, Monfils ...>15/32
And they're all able to lose before the final of course...

Re: open de moselle (Metz)

that's right, it's france v rest of the world

davis cup being a five matches, four guys format doesn't suit france that much.... they can send a dozen men to battle, easily

why pessimistic marine? there's almost 50% chance the champion will be french

Re: open de moselle (Metz)

Arnaud Clément / Nicolas Mahut beat Ljubicic / Uros Vico 6/2 7/6 (8)
Ok, he won something, it's not great it's just good for his moral.

Richard lost in final against Haehnel
I saw the match, Arnaud too, he was waiting for the double match, and he went to the room with the commentators to speak about him and about Richard etc...he was cool and adorable as usually.

Re: open de moselle (Metz)

from the atp site,
Quote:
WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Haehnel: “I don’t know what to say. I can’t think at the moment. This is great and unbelievable.”

“The best moment of the week was today’s match point. It was never ending, I just went for it because I didn’ t want to regret anything or do an unforced error. When his last shot went out it was such a relief, probably my best career memory.”

Gasquet: “I am happy about this week. It was my first indoor tournament this season and my first career final, I can’t be disappointed.”

“Jerome played really well, I had my occasions but he was there all the time and I couldn’t do anything.”

“My objective until the end of the season is to play as many good matches as possible in Basel and Bercy.”

Clement: " We are very happy to claim the title here in Metz. I really enjoy playing doubles and it was nice to play with Nicolas [Mahut] this week. We had a lot of fun playing together this week."

Mahut: "It is great to win again here. I was happy to play next to Arnaud [Clement] who is such a great player. I hope he will be able to come back to his top level in singles as well."
yes thanks for the thought.... i hope so too
