He'd better not tempt his luck and not waste a draw like this.

And look here: Clement/Grosjean v Lee/Massu ;)

wow i didn't see this coming... i had no idea how good this other guy was getting. he's in the QF recently at monte carlo, and also QF in munich last year, so he's defending points. and of course he's a local.
hmmm, the only reason I can think of is the money and the points?
that honestly wasn't what i was chuckling about lol.. i thought it's like london and halle, or sydney and auckland, small tournaments where for whatever reasons one field tends to be stronger than the other, no matter what they're paying. (officially). so 'lesser' players know which one to sign up to for better chances.

aww arnaud is not that bad with hindsight, lol... sign of the times, passing of the baton, whatever :shrug:

Not a surprise, Kohlschreiber is on fire these last weeks, he is playing in front of a home crowd, and clay isn't Arnaud's favourite surface...The only thing that surprises me is that some of you are shocked by this result :confused:

Wednesday OOP:

Arnaud Clement (FRA)/Sebastien Grosjean (FRA) vs Nicolas Devilder (FRA)/Diego Hartfield (ARG)
*speechless*

Mhm, and no fun at all when your home tournament, even though it's not on clay and has solid prize money, a good number of points and offers for players all the best conditions, is of that second kind. Geography and those unofficial sums play their role too, maybe there is also a couple of other reasons :rolleyes:

As for Kohlschreiber. Well, I've seen a few articles, sounds like a better and more aggressive baseline game and some luck at the important points made his match. Nothing surprising? Perhaps, but if it's the level Arnaud is going to show on clay this year then it's quite disappointing.
Btw, Arnaud was indeed playing in orange that match.

i know we are spoiled in sydney, we never pay those stars quite enough for their favour!!! lol

anyway i do hope arnaud/seb will do well.... meaning *win* though what's best for arnaud is probably more clay practice. and learn a thing or two from seb if he hasn't already!

Hooray, Arnaud has finally won a match :) I believe he still has things to learn from Seb, so that's great they'll play one or maybe a few more official matches together, on same side of the court.

good boys

it's time like this that we do need a 'global fan network' to give us at least some photos. i bet no one will find any, especially it's -only- doubles. but i guess german fans aren't particularly fond of sebastien :devil: :p

from the entry lists updated 4 may, it looks like arnaud and seb aren't playing rome at all. arnaud isn't even on hamburg's qualie list, though seb is. what is he thinking? go straight to roland garros, sign a few autographs, then call it a clay season? :confused:

he's an alternate on the main draw for hamburg. that got him nowhere for roma.

i still don't get it... if he's in rome, why not play qualifying? is he so doubtful about playing on clay by himself? or does he really have a 'pb' since casablanca ??? called 'phobia' perhaps? lol

The rest of the pictures from Munich is here (I especially like the last one, looks like a circus in the middle of the forest), sorry, haven't got a time to post them before.
Another bizarre is that he was playing doubles without bandana...

Seems you understand me well even without words, maybe I'll continue writing like that? :lol:
As for the source, there is nothing special, just got a useful contact by chance. All the credits go to Michael :worship:

And I don't get this story with Rome too... If there is something wrong and he doesn't want to play what's the reason to participate in doubles then, just not to leave Micka alone? But for now it's more like we can only compete who'll ask more questions...

interesting pics, and thanks for more video screen caps too! i see that arnaud was standing too far away from the female he's chatting to... he shouldn't be so distant, come on :devil:

yeah there are too many unanswered questions about his behaviour lately.... including that 'pb' that we still don't know anything about.... we've 'speculated' before, after rotterdam, but i don't want to do that again!
