Have a grand time, Steph!

Will you be wearing the now famous Les Bleus Tutu? :p Just kidding of course. I want to wear one in Indian Wells. Heck, if those goofy Netheads can wear basketball nets on their heads, a tutu is certainly a more fashionable statement.

Kisses, all...still pretty busy with work, but trying to get caught up on the boards.

think it's about time roger cools off and get upset.... lol

i never knew there's so much age restriction in aus.... when i first came here i was old enough to do practically anything so i never noticed... or may be i was just ignorant, lol....

You have to be 18 to buy a lotto ticket!!

02-17-2004, 10:01 PM
arnaud will play roger in a late night match on wednesday. with the live scores i think i can follow that one on the web..... like the one between tim and tommy right now.

esther
02-18-2004, 10:45 AM

02-18-2004, 09:12 PM
arnaud's lost the first set 4-6...... i just managed to catch the last point :(

esther what are you doing in a yr 12 class ??? lol..

Via
02-18-2004, 09:46 PM
federer has won 64 63....... :(

judging from the scoring, he had absolutely no trouble with arnaud.... breaking at will and winning all the important points.

on with marseille......

Nymeria

I visited the tournament today :) Saw Arnaud playing soccer :) And I saw the match of Thierry Ascione.

Via
02-18-2004, 10:52 PM
any pics, legolas?? who did arnaud play soccer with.... not tommy robredo, ha...

esther
02-19-2004, 06:16 AM
Did you see the fashion parade Legolas?!! Did you know that Thierry and Arnaud were on the catwalk modelling at rotterdam? LOL how funny. Where was he playing soccer? during practising i'm guessing? Who else did you see?

*sigh* poor Arnaud. Hopefully he wont get such a tough draw next week!!!!!!!!

i couldnt follow the match coz my internet at school is screwing up (via i'm doing 2 year 12 subjects lol) but yeah i guess its not surprising anyway.

arnaud better sticks to the tennis and leaves the soccer, the catwalk etc......

stephB
02-19-2004, 01:27 PM
no. he was great on catwalk *lol*. today he again played soccer. with his coach. and afterwards they played a little bit volleyball and than of course tennis :)
don't know what happend yesterday in his match. he made a lot of faults :( maybe he wanted to win too much. but he is in a good mood todayl. hopefully he can win the doublematch. allez arnaud

stephB

Nymeria
02-19-2004, 01:28 PM
I didn't see him on the catwalk, that was on tuesday, I was there on wednesday. Yep, he played soccer during practising. Don't know who he was playing with :o. I don't have any pics, I have to wait till Nicole (a friend of me) gives me her pics. But I've a little digital movie of Arnaud. Esther I'll send it to you on msn.

:lol: It was quiet funny, I was watching them playing soccer with three little boys. I did hear those boys talking to each other, and they thought I was the girlfriend of Arnaud :p

stephB
02-19-2004, 06:20 PM
he just won his double 76 46 63. so sweet:) now he is in the semis. wohoo

02-19-2004, 10:39 PM
oooooooohhhhh!!!!!! i thought they lost.... damn the official site, they had the scores backwards lol......

But I've a little digital movie of Arnaud. hmmm... i want to see it too :worship: my camera can do a little movie too, but i hadn't had it worked out when arnaud was in sydney :(

arnaud is having too much fun... what a life :rolleyes: (green)

esther
02-20-2004, 10:57 PM
lol no wonder he lost...he is too caught up playing soccer and modelling!!! what a joke...well at least he is having fun!! lol oh arnaud

i cant believe they are in the doubles semis! they are playing second on centre court so it'd be around...4pm their time so...2am our time...aww thats not good but are playing Ram/Erlich :D

yay go them

Via
02-21-2004, 04:13 AM

Nymeria
02-22-2004, 11:18 AM
hopefully Arnaud will have a better draw in Marseille ;) You can't be mad at him when he is defeated by the number one of the world.

stephB
02-22-2004, 12:38 PM

yeah. all of them :) and i also saw the fashion show. thought i told first about it...who else saw it???????????
i made some pics during the show and while some players (also arnaud and thierry) are kicking with the soccers of ajax amsterdam. so sweet. arnaud is really good. but everybody knows i think :)
and autographs...no. think i really have enough *lol*

@legolas. its always really nice when you see matches when hardly people are on the court. its not that loud than :) so sad that thierry lost to johansson. two weeks before i saw him playing not that good. i hoped a little bit that arnaud would watch the match :rolleyes:

Nymeria
02-24-2004, 06:07 PM
you've pics of the tennis players and the soccers of ajax amsterdam :| Can I see them? Ajax rulez :cool:

you are right steph, it was great to be there without other people. And when Lleyton's match was finished, and all people came to the other matches we had the best places :cool:

stephB
02-24-2004, 06:26 PM
yeah. me too. where did you have your seat??

Arnaud looks tres beau in the chemise bleu.

*sigh* less than two weeks and I'll be seeing him in person..... I just hope he can resist the urge to mess with the hair dye before then. I like his hair dark.

Legolas- thanks again for the video ;) :)

stephB
02-26-2004, 11:52 AM
hehe. good question. the models are wearing the new clothes but the players wear their own. so you are right. but they split it into pima, asics, adidas, lacoste etc. but thierry isnt wearing lacoste but he was at the same time at the stage. h??? *lol*
lacoste has so nice clothes. why arnaud and john wear so boring ones???????

Nymeria
02-26-2004, 05:33 PM
Via - I know I have a weird msn name, most people, even my friends, wonder who I am when I add them :p

Esther - you're welcome :) Great that you like the video

Maybe I can go to the fashion show next year :), this year I had no time to go that day :(

stephB
02-26-2004, 06:31 PM
this year fashionshows were on monday too. with srichaphan. dont know when richard was on catwalk. think it was also tuesday. you really should go next year :) its fun

michelleg
02-26-2004, 08:20 PM
I'm bringing a picture of Willie Nelson (horrifying country/folk singer) with me to Indian Wells to show Nono what he looks like with that evil goatee.

Sometimes people just need to be slapped in the face with their own reality.

Marine
02-26-2004, 08:31 PM
Good idea. And if you meet Seb, say him keeping his short hair like in Melbourne until RG (at least !), I want to see him as charming as he was in Australia ! :hearts:

michelleg
02-26-2004, 08:38 PM
I promise you all lots and lots and lots of Seb and Nono pics.

Please note that my zoom lens does NOT operate in the presence of certain players (Hewitt and Roddick.) Otherwise, expect a boatload.

That was what I was thinking too. I like kids a lot, but not to have them around all the time. But it was funny to talk with them, they can have great stories. And they asked me all the time which players were on practising courts, coz they didn't recognize them :p

stephB
02-28-2004, 01:35 PM
yeah. and every man with a tennisback was asked for an autograph and then "who is it?????????" oah. at every tourney the same :) did they really have great stories? for example???

Nymeria
02-29-2004, 01:21 PM
mmm, one of them was, what I say is a 'real tennis kid', you know they are very typical. They think they are much better as everybody else in the world. And he was telling me what all happned already to him that day. To let me know his visit to the tourny was much better as mine :p

stephB
02-29-2004, 08:39 PM
hehe. kids.... they cannot imagine that we also have great tennisdays. pfft.
