Well, isn't it nice to know which top players Arnaud beats?
Winning against a higher-ranked player is something both a player and his fans can be proud of.

Besides, Gonzo is somebody who had beaten Nono many times so good to get a revenge finally.

Arnaud le gaucher!

Arnaud Clement n'est décidément pas un joueur comme les autres. Frustré de ne pouvoir s'exprimer à cause d'une blessure au poignet droit, l'Aixois a renoué avec la compétition en participant en gaucher à un tournoi amateur à Gap! L'ancien finaliste de l'Open d'Australie a fait son petit effet en remportant deux matches contre deux joueurs classés respectivement 30/1 et 30, 6-1, 6-1 puis 6-3, 6-2.

source: sports.fr

ATP: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Gael Monfils, Michael Llodra, Roger Federer, Mardy Fish
WTA: Kim Clijsters, Victoria Azarenka, Vera Zvonareva

OMG I KNOW...that was SO funny!!!!
sth similar from eurosport:

Injured Clement wins

Flamboyant French tennis player Arnaud Clement is pioneering an unusual way to keep his eye in while sidelined with a painful right wrist injury -- he plays left-handed.




The 2001 Australian Open runner up -- instantly recognisable by his brightly coloured outfits and bandanas and his on-court sunglasses -- has been out of action with lingering tendinitis since the beginning of the season.

But instead of putting his feet up while he recovers, the right-handed baseliner has been playing left-handed at an amateur tournament in the south of France.

The French Tennis Federation gave Clement permission to play in the tournament in Gap with his 'wrong hand' and he went on to beat two good local players in straight sets, French sports daily l'Equipe reported on Monday.

HOW FUNNY IS IT?? aww he's so cute

Clément repasse droitier

25 février 2003 - Thomas THEATE
Privé de compétition depuis maintenant trois mois à cause d’un poignet droit douloureux, Arnaud Clément reprendra ses repères sur le circuit ATP à Delray Beach (du 3 au 10 mars). Après s’être essayé à un tournoi amateur avec la main gauche, la tournée américaine sera pour lui l’occasion de renouer avec le rythme des compétitions majeures.

A force de s’ennuyer à mourir, Arnaud Clément a pris les choses en mains. Et de la gauche. Le Français, au repos forcé depuis une tendinite au poignet droit contractée il y maintenant trois longs mois, n’a pu s’empêcher de se remettre au travail. Et c’est de la main gauche que la « Clé » a occupé, durant deux mois, ses journées d’entraînements. Mais le côté ludique de la chose a vite pris une toute autre dimension qui l’a même poussé à demander à la Fédération Française de Tennis de lui accorder une nouvelle licence en tant que gaucher. Seul et unique moyen trouvé par Arnaud pour assouvir sa lubie du moment : disputer des tournois amateurs. Cette nouvelle licence, la FFT la lui a remis sans sourciller.

Nouveau statut en poche, Clément s’inscrivait alors au tournoi de Gap. « En fait, ça faisait deux mois que je ne jouais exclusivement que de cette main pour préserver mon poignet droit au maximum. Et puis j'ai eu cette idée ! Je trouvais ça marrant quoi ! (Rires) Rejouer un tournoi amateur, peu de joueurs pros ont l'occase de faire un truc pareil. Je crois même être le seul (Rires). Non, je trouvais ça cool quoi et en même temps j'avais envie de me mesurer à quelqu'un pour voir jusqu'ou je pouvais aller. Je me suis inscrit à Gap ! » expliquait-il sur son site internet. Bilan de l’expérience : deux victoires à 30/1 et 30 devant des caméras de télévision présentes tout spécialement pour cet atypique spectacle. « Les mecs ont halluciné ! Ils n'étaient pas au courant. Il y avait des caméras, c'était sympa. J'ai fait deux tours comme je n'avais pas grand chose d'autre à faire. J'ai battu un 30/1 et un 30. Le 30, il était vraiment plus fort que moi, c'est clair, mais comme je cours pas mal, je m'en suis sorti sur le score de 6/3 6/4. Après j'ai arrêté le tournois et je lui ai laissé ma place pour la suite. »

Blague terminée, retour aux choses sérieuses pour Arnaud. Changement à nouveau de mains, et retour à cette bonne veille main droite afin de préparer au mieux son come-back chez les « Gros » du circuit ATP. Une bascule de latéralité qui semble se passer en douceur. La machine encaisse convenablement ce retour aux normes, le rythme retrouve ses droits petit à petit. « J'ai déjà joué en condition normale et j'ai ressenti quelques douleurs au poignet. On m'a dit que c'était normal du fait de mon immobilisation, positivait Clément. Au niveau de ma préparation, j'ai fait un peu de musculation et pas mal de rééducation. Je retourne voir le médecin dans la semaine et je m'envole pour les USA jeudi. » Il ne lui reste plus qu’à jauger ses capacités en terre américaine quoi après une épreuve qui se présentait pour la première fois de sa carrière. « C'est la première fois de toute ma carrière que je reprends après une blessure. Je n'ai donc aucun repère aussi bien psychologique que physique. Les quelques fois ou j'ai rejoué, j'ai eu pas mal de douleurs, j'ai ressentis quelques contractures à plusieurs endroits. Je verrai bien comment cela va se passer... ».

ENGLISH:

Clement to return right-handed.

Out of competition for new 3 months because of a right wrist injury, ARnaud will come back on the ATP circuit at Delray Beach (3-10 March). After trying an amateur tourney with his left hand, the american tournament will be for him to get back his rhythm in major competition.


*A force de s’ennuyer à mourir*, Arnaud Clément took the things to his hands. And the left one. The Frenchie, forced to rest because of tendinitis to his wrist, was forced to keep out of competition for 3 long months, couldn't prevent him to take his work. And that's the left hand which la Cle took care of, during 2 months, the training days. But with his playful side of it, he quicky took a new dimension to ask the FFT to let him take a new lisence- one to be left-handed. A unique way to get back into professional competition was to play amateur tennis left handed. A new license the FFT have let him do without question.

New pocket statue (?), Arnaud played at the Gap tourney.
'in fact that makes 2 makes that i have played with my left hand only so that i could make sure my right wrist was better again. and then i had this idea! i found it quite funny...! to play an amateur tourney again, some of the pro players have thought of doing the same thing. i think i'm still the only one though!! no i thought iwas really cool and at the same time i could see how i played against someone. so i registered at the Gap!', arnaud explained on the internet. Report of the experience, 2 vicoties against at 30/1 and 30 before the TV cameras presenting the spectacle.

« Les mecs ont halluciné ! Ils n'étaient pas au courant. Il y avait des caméras, c'était sympa. J'ai fait deux tours comme je n'avais pas grand chose d'autre à faire. J'ai battu un 30/1 et un 30. Le 30, il était vraiment plus fort que moi, c'est clair, mais comme je cours pas mal, je m'en suis sorti sur le score de 6/3 6/4. Après j'ai arrêté le tournois et je lui ai laissé ma place pour la suite. »

Aside from the jokes, the return to everything is serious for Arnaud. Changing the hands, preparation will be done using the old right hand for the ‘big’ tourneys on the ATP circuit. A lateral tip will seem that it will go smoothly. He will find his rhthym again and return well.

‘I have already played in normal conditions and I have felt normal again with the pains of the wrist. One has told me its normal to be moving not as well,’ said Clement. News on my prepartion, I’ve done a bit of muscular work and a bit of re-education. I will go see my doctor again this week and will fly to the USA on Thursday’. He won’t rest any more with the American tourneys after a test which will be before him for the first time in his career.

It’s the first time in my career that I have had to come back after injurty. I therefore have no idea how I will go physically and psychologically. A few times that I have played again, I’ve had a bit of pain in several places. I will see how it goes…’
