Via - I linked to your site as well as here, but I'll go give you a proper plug now. Nae wurries.


Esther - did you see the match? Sometimes I feel like I'm the only Nonofan in the world who never gets to see him play. *violins playing*

Re: news Arnaud

thanks irish.... i don't really worry that much about it as i haven't got most of the pics uploaded, so it's ok wherever you link to... and anyway there's very little i can do about other forums all over the place.

i saw the arnaud's match live on centre court. i think he was nervous at the start. he also rushed the net without much success, as hewitt was simply too good doing his favourite passes and lobs. then i think he settled down in the 2nd, played some fantastic groundies, while hewitt made more errors. in the 3rd somehow he lost momentum, and made a few really bad mistakes in the game which he lost serve. so hewitt went on to win the set and the match.

sometimes i feel that 5 setters may actually benefit arnaud... 3 setters are too short for him to win in the 'long run'. not that i'm saying hewitt will come up short in 5 sets... but just generally speaking.

arnaud was a very graceful loser... hmm... i felt he put on a brave face with that smile at the net shaking hands with hewitt. i think i felt his pain..... urrggh......

someone told me that he stayed on to watch philippoussis match in the evening before leaving..... but that person might have been mistaken...

and i went home with the name plate 'A. Clement' with me as a souvenir...... lol. the one used on centre court today. *sigh*

*******Totally agree with you about the five setters. There are not many players who benefit from having to dig deep and play a marathon, but I think it really brings out the best in Arnaud.*******

That's a great souvenir! What are you going to do with it?




******These comments are henceforth withdrawn after M. Clément made a total f***ing mess of his first round AO match. Thank you.

Re: news Arnaud

i've hung it up on the wall. i won't be allowed to forget 'a.clement' for the rest of the year

i forgot to mention that i was pretty luckless the past few days... since i got a court swap to do arnaud's match with fish on tuesday, and everyone knew i was an arnaud fan.... every now and then people would come up to me and say, 'arnaud was at the stringers, but you were out on court so you couldn't see him' 'arnaud was just at the door leaving, i tried to look for you but you weren't around'....... so it seemed everyone had run into arnaud, but not me

Wowie, Via, I'd love to have Nono on top and Feli on the bottom!!!!!

What a great souvenir. Irish, you're not alone in the lack of tennis department. I gots nada here, too. Bummed that Nono lost, especially since Lleyton is not exactly on my favorites list.

Still sick. This sucks.
