He played qualies in Australia and has played a few challenger events in France this year and is struggling with his form at the moment sadly.

Dip was in the Marseille qualies a week ago.

Since his ranking is not improving (stuck outside the top 200 for a few months), he doesn't appear on the big tourneys' draws anymore/yet: that's why we don't hear much about him these days.

But he's out there, playing.
He should take part in the Cherbourg challenger next.

Not much happening, so nothing really new, but there's my little site dedicated to Arnaud (http://www.geocities.com/arnauddipasquale/) that I keep updating - if you want more info.

He doesn't participate at Cherbourg challenger. I'm surprising to that :eek:. I hope we would see him in few time (sorry for my english)

Mel
02-15-2005, 08:43 PM
Ah non? Si tu as des infos, ça m'intéresse, Laure.
Note the "should" I used: I'm never sure of anything :) I'm just doing the usual predictions: Dip was 5 on the alternate list for Cherbourg, and would probably get a wild card if he asked.

But who knows where he'll actually play next week...

Laure
02-15-2005, 09:25 PM
Sorry, I do a mistake :worship: . He doesn't in the Open Franche-Comté (Besançon) (chellenger) in France this week and he doesn't in the acceptance list on the Cherbourg challenger last week, so, maybe he will go with on wild card or in qualify. I think we will have the answer during the week-end on the site of the tournament :

Barletta, I believe. He's either next-in or close to that on the alt list.

He was in the crowd at the Davis Cup.

Mel
03-11-2005, 04:52 PM
indeed he was..

michelleg
03-11-2005, 06:19 PM
Oooouuuuuaaiiii ....was he with that blonde girl or with the guys?

GermanBoy
03-12-2005, 03:17 PM
I think he should shave his beard or at least parts of it... :p

Mel
03-12-2005, 05:51 PM

certainly not :devil:

Oooouuuuuaaiiii ....was he with that blonde girl or with the guys?
apparently not w his blonde girl, but in the guys' families/friends area.

03-12-2005, 06:14 PM
D'accord, Mel. Je le prefiere avec le barbe. (is that correct?)

Go check out the trailers for "Sahara." Matt Mc C is bearing a striking resemblance to the bearded DiP in that movie. Either that, or I am suffering tennis withdrawal to the point of hallucination. (See pic for reference)

Mel
03-13-2005, 11:46 AM
Couldn't agree more, Mich: it's been some time now that I consider Dip as a :drool:-Matthew lookalike, or vice versa.

In perfect French, it goes "Je le préfère avec la barbe".

michelleg
03-13-2005, 01:49 PM
Merci, Mel. :) I am still confusing Spanish and French, esp. when trying to conjugate.

GermanBoy
03-13-2005, 05:43 PM
Nevertheless, get rid of that beard, Arnaud... ;)

michelleg
03-13-2005, 05:59 PM
Pfft, the beard fits with the shorter hair, danke. We've already established that as a universal truth.

Now if his hair were long like it used to be (in that sexy long bob with the ringlets that had the prettiest highlights...oops, sorry, dreaming out loud here...) then he would look better without the beard.

Its the other Arnaud that needs a shave. Goatees are yucky.

Action Jackson
03-13-2005, 06:00 PM
DiP needs to worry about improving his form and not his beard.

GermanBoy
03-13-2005, 08:01 PM
GWH, I have to agree! :)

Laure
04-03-2005, 05:46 PM
Sorry, Dip lost against Chiudinelli 5-7, 6-3, 7-5. It's damage because in the third set he mean 5-3...
Now, good luck for the doble with Arnaud Clément!!!!!

Marine
04-03-2005, 06:24 PM
I suppose he's disapointed he was born in Casablanca and his father still lives here I think.

Mel
04-03-2005, 06:49 PM
I suppose he's disapointed he was born in Casablanca and his father still lives here I think.
"since he was born", right?

really would like confirmation about those scores 'cause they don't fit w the scoreboard ones: the tourney site is a bit confusing...

Anyway, I am SO pleased our Nonos are playing doubles together :bounce: Long time I was waiting for this.

Olbia - Today, Arnaud won a match in a main draw, of a challenger tourney, but still :hug:
He defeats Lukas Dlouhy (Scg) 6-2 2-6 6-4. Next up: Janko Tipsarevic.

GermanBoy
04-15-2005, 08:36 PM
Arnaud had to withdraw. Tipsarevic won w.o.! :fiery: :bigcry: Do you know why Arnaud was not able to play? :confused: Get well soon, Arnaud! :hug:

Mel

He's in for the qualies.

GermanBoy
05-15-2005, 04:44 PM
That is not fair! :mad:

Mel
05-15-2005, 04:58 PM
well, considering his actual rankings, we must admit that it is fair for the others, to not give him a WC to the main draw.

GermanBoy
05-15-2005, 07:56 PM
Okay, but do you think he can qualify? :confused: :scared:

05-17-2005, 06:08 PM
It is official. :sad: I am so sad! :sad:

Have just sent an e-mail to the French Tennis Federation and they have responded only a few minutes later.

Il a déclaré forfait hier car il est blessé. Il devait jouer les
qualifications.

Bonne soirée

Merde! :mad: Get well soon, Arnaud! :hug:

L'equipe:

Di Pasquale renonce


VICTIME DE BLESSURES À RÉPÉTITION, le Français ne disputera pas Roland-Garros. Le dernier match d’Arnaud Di Pasquale avait pourtant été une victoire. Il y a un mois, le Français avait éliminé au premier tour du challenger d’Olbia (Sardaigne) le Tchèque Dlouhy. Mais, « sur un passing de revers tiré à l’arraché, j’ai senti une énorme décharge dans le dos », raconte-t-il aujourd’hui. « J’étais tétanisé par la douleur. J’ai gagné, mais c’était un hold-up. Le lendemain matin, rebelote : je me suis bloqué à nouveau le dos. J’ai dû déclarer forfait le lendemain. »

Depuis la hernie discale qui le contraignit à une opération en août 2003, la vie de l’ancien champion du monde juniors (1997) est jalonnée de pépins physiques, comme si son corps lui intimait l’ordre que son esprit se refuse encore à évoquer : stop ! « En Australie, c’était une contracture à une cuisse, en février la grippe, à Olbia le dos, énumère-t-il. Toutes les trois semaines, j’ai mal quelque part, ce qui chamboule tous mes plans. Mais j’ai vraiment touché le fond aux qualifs de Casablanca, où j’ai perdu contre Chiudinelli après avoir eu balle de match. Tout ça devant mon père, ma sœur, mon frère… Franchement, j’ai eu honte de moi ! »

Un moment, pourtant, le Français a « retrouvé l’envie ». Mais, tombé à la 273e place mondiale (soit l’équivalent de son classement à la veille d’entamer sa première saison professionnelle, en 1998), « Dip » ne sait plus vraiment trop sur quel pied danser. « D’un côté, j’avais une envie dingue de jouer les qualifs de Roland, avoue celui qui fut deux fois huitième-finaliste de l’épreuve (en 1999 et en 2002). D’un autre, j’ai eu un peu peur. C’est dur d’oublier le regard des autres. C’est quand même Roland-Garros !... » La mort dans l’âme, Di Pasquale a finalement pris sa décision : il renonce. À vingt-six ans, il se refuse néanmoins à lire son avenir : « Je ferai le bilan en fin d’année, dit-il. J’ai envie de jouer cette saison à fond. Mais comment mon corps réagira-t-il aux efforts que je vais lui demander ? »

hi Alex. Arnaud left a message (in french) on my forum (http://on.starblvd.net/meet/dipforum) a couple of weeks ago...
Last time on court was at the Timisoara Challenger where he reached the QF.
and he's supposed to play in Geneva next week.

GermanBoy
08-19-2005, 08:25 PM
Wow, he knows your website... :D

Marine

Pauvre Dip. Il pourrait créer une assoc' avec Nico Escudé, dand le genre pas de bol ils sont au top niveau blessure.
Apparemment ça va mieux à ce niveau là, espérons que ça dure.

"A little pic of Dip with other french players, yesterday in RG..."
They were not in RG but at Jean Bouin... :secret:

Another pic on which you can see Dip celebrating the PJB's title ( his club...) with other players (the man who's carried triomphantly is Arnaud Lagardère, the "sponsor"...).

The poor guy lost against the promissing Croatian youngster Marin Cilic (WC) in the first round of the Geneva challenger 1-6, 6-4, 6-2...

What were Dip's injuries exactly?

It's reeducation time, again, for Arnaud : he did not play any tourney since early july when he withdrew at Montauban challenger due to an achilles tendinitis.
Maybe Geneva or Manerbio in a couple of weeks since he's on the alternate lists for these.

GermanBoy

He was back on court this week. He played a future on clay. Unfortunately he lost the tiebreak on the third set of his 2nd round.

*bump* for Ome:
Arnaud Di Pasquale : « Je marchais comme un papy de 90 ans »
« UN JOUR, sur un Challenger à Andrézieux-Bouthéon, j’ai senti une petite pointe dans les fesses. Le problème a persisté, le point est descendu doucement et la douleur a progressé de jour en jour. Chaque matin, je marchais comme un papy de quatre-vingt-dix ans. Il fallait plusieurs heures pour que je remarche normalement. Il me fallait quatre ou cinq minutes pour entrer ou sortir d’une bagnole. Arrivé à Indian Wells, Rémi (Barbarin) et Arnaud (Clément) m’appelaient “Bébel” parce qu’ils pensaient que je faisais l’acteur. J’ai décidé de zapper Key Biscayne pour rentrer passer des examens à Paris. Le doc m’a dit que j’avais une hernie discale au niveau des vertèbres L 4-L 5. J’étais presque content de savoir enfin ce que j’avais ! On a d’abord cru que ça se résorberait tout seul, on a donc soigné avec des infiltrations. Après la deuxième, j’ai cru que c’était guéri. Et puis, un jour, sur un footing, crac ! J’étais effondré… J’ai donc été opéré en août 2003. Après, je n’ai jamais récupéré l’intégralité de mes moyens. Tous les mois et demi, je me tapais un lumbago. J’ai dû essayer six ou sept fois de revenir, à chaque fois il y avait un problème. Les sensations étaient là, mais le corps ne suivait plus. Je ne pouvais pas jouer de mon point fort (le physique) : même à l’échauffement, je gérais… Et plus le match était long, plus il laissait des traces. Un jour, sur un Challenger à Olbia, je suis même resté coincé sur la lunette des chiottes : impossible d’atteindre le papier hygiénique ! J’ai pris l’avion le lendemain alors que j’étais encore en course dans le tournoi. Voilà, je n’ai plus jamais rejoué comme avant. » – V. C.
