He made it a French double indoors after Amélie Momo beat Clijsters to win Antwerp, I might add. :p

Excellent week from Clement and deserved the title.

Another disappointing performance by Ancic, he got schooled big time.

Great job Arnaud! What an ass kicking today, Ancic had no chance, especially after he broke himself by hitting two double faults and netting a volley. Even at the net Clement was passing him left and right and hitting second serve winners of Ancic's serve. :haha:

Great week for Arnaud and hopefully he can carry this confidence and form into the rest of the season's events. :yeah:

Clement was just solid, Ancic was bad. Not a spectacular match at all.

And everyone who uses word "choke" is :retard: and needs :help:

Mario is a choke artist...

He has no balls even to put a great fight. Actually he is a better player than Arnaud but somehow Arnaud showed that he wants this title more. And Arnaud deserves this title with the way he played during the whole tournament.

Btw if we remember Davis cup final, Ancic was strruggling to defeat Michal Mertinak. He was so frightened to win ... and this thing goes on and on just in every final.

Great week for Clement, the little giant killer! 5ft-6in beats guys over 6ft-love it!!

According to the ATP site he is a towering 5'8 - but then again the ATP site is about as relaible about height as the WTA site is about weight. Pretty predictable outcome given Ancic's problems but Clement still had to go out and get it done and it was an emphatic win considering Ancic had crushed him in the 1st round of Adelaide. I hope it means that Clement will be in the mix a little more through the season but if not it still makes his year.

An excellent example of why you shouldn't quit to quickly when your ranking drops. As his entry was on a WC I would like to point out that over the last while Arnaud has played tons of qualifying and a few Challengers to get his ranking back up - that is the recipe for a comeback not following a trail of WC's like some players.

Shouldn't someone be playing that annoying song from a few years back? :)

Congrats to Clement. I don't think anyone would've hesitated to laugh if at the beginning of this tournament, someone said, "Clement is going to beat Gasquet, Verdasco, Santoro, Nadal, and Ancic to take the title."

:sad: Sigh, well, Clement dashed my PAW hopes and my hopes for an Ancic breakthrough, but congratulations to him, he defeated an awesome roster of players. :D

Congrats Arnaud! Now Richie's and Santoro's losses don't look bad at all, or do they? :D
What a great week! Hope he can keep it up! :D

Congrats to Clement, i saw all his matches since he kept beating my favs all tournament long. He seems to have recovered the form he had some years ago.

Congrats Arnauld :cool:
You beaten some really good players you deserved it

Mario great congrats on your great week. Hope you win more titles in the future.
Ljubicic also used to lose in finals before 2005.(he has olny won 1 title before 2005).Now he is world no 5 and won 4 titles. I dont see why ancic could'nt be a top 10 player one day.

:yeah: if you do similar analysis regularly on players, i will need to bookmark you!

i now know what you meant by arnaud's character when he's down and out... but then when it comes to WC's he can only look for them in french tourneys, he isn't quite in the league of those who can ask for them anywhere. if he still believes he has something left and wants to play on, then he just has to be pragmatic about his low ranking and grind it out.

winning this 'home town' tournament must be enough justification of two years of hard work. even if nothing else follows.

By the way he was trashing his opponents in Auckland I thought Jarkko would have no chance but instead he was the one who was trashed. And now he beats Marcos, Sebastian and then Ljubicic yet manages to lose to a player he killed barely a month ago. I'm so pissed he should have let Ivan won, Ivan would have had his 3rd title of the year. I am sure of this.

Good Luck
