Hey all :)

Well I told Steph I had taken some pictures of Arnaud and that I'd e-mail them, but I thought I could post them here as well.

The pictures are from various years and various tournaments (actually only the ABN/AMRO WTT in Rotterdam and the Ordina Open in Rosmalen). The card is a part of the "New Balls Please" campaign. For those of you who are interested in it, I also scanned the backside which has some information about Arnaud on it.

Enjoy! :)

thanks for all the pics and scans, coocoocachoo !!!! what's arnaud doing there cornered in a white tent ? ;)

the card reminds me... i look at my 1999 and 2000 atp player cards again, but there's no arnaud in them. seb was there in 2000. your card must be produced a year after my last pack (early 2001?).

He was actually about to enter the white tent, after having practised ;) That way, he could go to the showers and such, without being bothered by fans such as moi ;)

The cards were probably of 1999. There were a lot of them, in packages of six cards I think. Therefore, not every package contained all cards (I had several packages :p)..

arnaud to shower in a tent ???? he...he.... how exotic ;)

*cough*

nah... the new balls please campagne was well after 1999. did you have to buy those cards, or were they given out for free at tournaments etc ?

They were given out for free, hehe ;)

Ah yes, I was mistaken with 1999. I'm never sure about when the ATP Tournament (The Dutch Open) moved from Amsterdam to Amersfoort. That means it must've been 2001.

Merci beaucoup! for the photos.


There's a lot of that sort of tent stuff going on at smaller tourneys. Makes you think, doesn't it? One rope comes loose and the whole tent comes down.....

:devil:

lol Via..

Irishface, mind you that the ABN/AMRO WTT is by no means a small tournament ;) The tent is just a way for the players to pass the huge Ahoy complex without any problems ;) And maybe take a group shower, off course. (Dominik Hrbaty went in right after Arnaud..)

Arnaud enters in a tent and you imagine so many things, girls...let him live, the poor boy ! :) lol

Ahhh, this was Rotterdam? I though maybe Rosmalen - Rosmalen is smaller, yes? So the tent was only an enclosure that led to the locker rooms? At some small tourneys, they don't have enough space at the club, so they have some temporary facilities. Some of my friends go to a tourney in Liverpool that is completely temporary - ALL tents. In a field. Marat Safin, showering in a tent and eating burgers from a van. :rolls:

oh c'mon irish........ the shower in a tent thing was only supposed to be a joke. you don't seriously mean marat was subject to such 5 stars hospitality ??? lol

i think here in aust there must be a thriving outdoor facility hire industry..... there are of course lots of temporary structures at tournaments, but they are solid bunkers and the like, which are assembled for the event, and taken off afterwards. including the toilets. there's nothing that looks as vulnerable as tents, lol.....

The tent picture was made in Rotterdam. Some others were taken in Rosmalen. Rosmalen is not really a smaller tournament, because WTA and ATP are combined. There are a lot more courts there and it's in the open air. And Rosmalen makes use of, as Via said, solid bunkers.

Now Rotterdam is indeed a temporary tournament, but the Ahoy complex is very large, so there is no need for tents for the players to stay and shower in lol; they have good facilities.

:) He was. And he loved it. He was injured last year, so he didn't go back - I'll keep you posted if he goes this year. ;)

it would be great, irish, if you can show proof that he loves that shower. lol.....

and steph.... yes i agree it would be boring after at most a month...... after all, the players are same old, same old... (just imagine being a player yourself! lol) but when that happened i could concentrate on seeing the cities and just drop by the tennis once in a while :D i guess i just want the travelling !!!

then i wanna go to monte carlo for the tournament.

in america i want to go to indian wells, for the stunning scenery that i've heard about. long island wouldn't be too bad either coz arnaud seems to like that small tournament.

in asia i'd like to experience the new found tennis craze in bangkok and beijing. i am not too sure i want to experience the tennis craze in south america.....

02-08-2004, 12:39 PM
south france is sooooooo nice :) and provence too. i´ve never been in aix but the whole area is really wonderful. if you are there you dont wanna leave. i swear :)

and the tourney in monte carlos is soo expensive. jesus

Via
02-08-2004, 10:40 PM
i am sure i wouldn't wanna leave..... until the money ran out (don't forget i am still planning to use the prizemoney that i haven't yet won ;) )

02-10-2004, 12:42 AM
