As said in the Arnaud picture thread, here's a place where we Brunoholics can discuss about Arno's lovely brother :hearts:

And I think the first topic we can discuss is his haircut. Which one do you like the most?

For me it must be the blonde ponytail :inlove:

As for his hair - he was soooooo cute in Moscow! :angel: Now his hair looks a bit different, but just a bit. So I like this variant too :)

There was a couple of funny moments when they showed Bruno in this video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=9X_Jrpf6Bg0, between 3 min 30 sec and 4 min 30 sec I think (sorry, this video is too sad to rewatch and call the exact moment).

And I know he's very very very very very very nice and really sweet :hearts:

I meant his date of birth at least :lol:, some other personal info...

Kezzi
11-10-2006, 08:48 PM
I know he's 18 months older than Arno, but i don't think we can get his exact date of birth by adding 18 months to Arno's date of birth :p

I'm also curious to get to know Bruno a little better, if I think about it, I know nothing about him except what I posted before ;) .
And there's the nickname Funs, but my sister and I made that up for him. He doesn't even know it himself, only a small group of our friends adapted that nickname :lol: .

Arnaud abour Bruno and Seb's coaching.

Et justement avec Sébastien Grosjean, comment cela se passe-t-il dans la pratique, où vous devez partager le même entraîneur, et notamment quand vous vous rencontrez à Metz ?

A.C. : "Bruno donne un coup de main à Sébastien en ce moment sur les tournois que l'on a en commun, depuis Metz en fait. Mais Bruno reste mon entraîneur en particulier aujourd'hui. Il lui donne un coup de main, quand mon frère est disponible, quand il peut le faire parce que ça lui fait plaisir aussi. Ils sont très potes."
Je ne sais pas ce que cela donnera l'année prochaine, on verra. Mais dans la pratique, il n'y a pas de souci : quand on joue l'un contre l'autre, Bruno est pour moi, il n'y a pas de doute dans ma tête, ni dans celle de Sébastien !"

NEWS

Bruno has become officially Sebastien's coach for the next year ! :D :D :D

He will train Arnaud and Seb from the australian open.

Sébastien, tu devais annoncer à la mi-novembre le nom de ton prochain entraîneur. As-tu pris une décision ?
Même s’il restent encore quelques petits détails à régler, je peux désormais vous dire que mon prochain entraîneur sera Bruno Clément. Il y avait d’autres pistes mais je ne les sentais pas trop. Avec Bruno, je ne pars pas dans l’inconnu. Nous avons travaillé ensemble durant trois semaines à Metz, Lyon et Bercy. Je ne connaissais pas Bruno en tant qu’entraîneur. Sa manière de travailler m’a enthousiasmé. Le feeling est bien passé, nous partageons les mêmes idées. La travail qu’il demande est très dur et il est extrêmement compétent.


Cela signifie que tu auras donc le même programme de tournois qu’Arnaud Clement ?
Oui, à 90%, on jouera les mêmes tournois. Mais je serai tout seul pour le premier tournoi de l’année à Doha. Arnaud a préféré se rendre à Adélaïde. Notre collaboration débutera à Sydney et nous enchaînerons après avec l’Open d’Australie. Je suis vraiment ravi de travailler avec Arnaud et Bruno. Il était important pour moi de voyager avec des gens qui me sont proches. En plus de l’entraînement, je vais pouvoir partager de nombreuses choses avec eux. C’est très important quand on est à 10 000 km de sa famille. :angel:

Does it mean you will have the same programme than Arnaud ?
Yes, at 90 % we will play the same tournaments. But I'll be alone in the first tournament in Doha, Arnaud prefered to play in Adelaide. Our collaboration will start in Sydney then we'll play the AO. I'm very glad to work with Arnaud and Bruno. It's important for me to travel with people who are close of me. In addition of trainings, I'll can share many things with them. It's very important when I'm far from my family.


Personly I'm very happy, because they're my 2 favorite players, as you can know.
Seb doesn't like less ans less to leave his family and needs to be with his closest friends on the tour to feel good.

Via, Arnaud still is loyal to australian tournaments... he misses Australia ! And they will start to work together in... SYDNEY !

Kezzi

Yep, I had the confirmation, they'll both be there (well, at least they will be 3, I forgot Bruno :)!!
Dunno yet if I can go but I'll try too!! Entry list is great (if it stays like this) but Rotterdam tournament is Arnaud's mandatory tournament so he has to be there :)

I have the same with Benneteau, in pics I really dislike the short hair, but irl he's cuter than with long hair :) . With Arnaud and Bruno I'm not that far gone :lol: I still like the ponytail best with Bruno and Arnaud with his post-mohawk hairdo :) .

A friend told me that he was at Bremond's match yesterday, does anyone know why?

Severine Bremond is camille's best friend, so I guess he knows her quite well.
And frenchies like to watch other frenchies to play...

Kezzi
05-31-2007, 09:54 PM
I didn't know they are best friends :)

A little off topic: I think Severine is a really beautiful name :D

And completely off topic: when I click the url in your sig it shows this:
"This video has been removed due to terms of use violation."
Don't know if that's the purpose of your sig, but just for your information :)

Bruno is always the best birthday present :bounce: I asked him with a nice big ribbon around him, but no one could find Bruno's to buy :p
And I haven't seen the first picture before, it's great, I wish I could've seen that match :hearts:

Dankjewel ;) But we usually say 'Hartelijk gefeliciteerd', 'Proficiat' (both translations for congratulations) or 'Fijne verjaardag' (Happy birthday).
'Gelukkig' is more the translation for the mood 'happy' :)

I'm surprised ! At first I don't see him coaching a girl, even if i know he already coached emmanuelle edon some years ago. But severine is coached by his husband, eric bremond, who was camille's coach too until the last year (yes, she's camille's best friend). I don't know why she needs 2 coachs.

i sat next to a woman who was 'guest of severine bremond' (as noted on her pass) during a doubles match of clement/llodra in melbourne. and she sat with a guy who was 'guest of arnaud clement'... although bruno did not attend that match.

really... you must have heard kristen's story of sitting next to bruno and chatting to him. i guess we're more relaxed in australia because the vip's aren't usually segregated from us common people, unlike in other tournaments in other countries i've visited, i know that.

Special to me not because they have passes, but because they know Arnaud. What type of information??--anything :devil:!!

But it does depend on the situation, I sat in front of Julien Benneteau's coach, but didn't talk to him because others were being so embarassing while talking to him. Ha! suppose that could be me in any other situation!:haha:

I'm curious enough and I've also been around 'special people' but when it comes to it, I just don't know a subject to talk about :p

It sounds like the tournament in Rosmalen, everyone is also very relaxed there. Once I even spotted Vizner sunbathing with his family on a towel near the training courts. Or a wta player that brought her dog :lol:
But it's not like that everywhere in Holland, the smaller tournaments like challengers are also very relaxed, but the ABN Amro tournament has a more formal atmosphere, lots of men in suits, etc.

marine, your english is great... how do you know i'm at ease with it myself? or anybody else? lol you never know, we may all be struggling. for example you don't know how many aussies are classified as illiterate, can't read, can't spell.

no, i don't feel like a stranger on this forum at all, it's been a few years now and i know what to expect :p if i start posting on another forum then yes, i would feel surrounded by strangers! online life isn't that different from real life, you know. (or so i try to believe...)
In Holland we even have one of our princesses as an ambassador for the illiterate :) and tadaaah... I learned a new word, had to look up illiterate if I didn't read it here

I also don't feel like a stranger here, it's nice to talk to people with the same interest. Not like some of my friends in real life "Oh no! not tennis again!" with a big sigh :p
I agree that online life isn't that different, it just makes it a lot easier to meet people with common interests. Without internet I would probably meet people at the local tennisclub or so and that's it. It's so much easier to meet and keep in touch with foreigners. For example, I have a friend in France and I'm sure we didn't have contact anymore after a year if it wasn't for internet. I now know him about 5 years now and even been back on a holiday in 2006 :)

hahaha :haha: we aren't yet that relaxed here! but no, no one wears a suit, we'd be melting in one.
That tournament is in Februari in Holland, so not really hot here :p
But the suits are those business people who got tickets from their boss (mostly sponsors of the tourny). It's funny to see some of their wives at training courts drooling over players or saying stupid things about tennis with an attitude like they know everything about it :lol:

btw: that dog was very cool, even got his own pass and took pics with players :rolls:

well yeah actually there are suits at the australian open, i'm sure... they sit in their VIP boxes, too far away for me to speculate. luckily (or unluckily for sake of fun) such people never turn up at smaller or practice courts here! at least they know their place (...is at the corporate drinking hole) :lol:

... ohh i forgot to laugh at the dog. :lol:

and oh btw you know in most places the VIP get to meet the players in more organised functions anyway, so i suppose they don't have to do the drooling at practice courts, mixing with us commoners. another sign that holland is the most relaxed tennis place on earth :yeah:

I've got a vip ticket in Rosmalen in 2006, that vip village (in Rosmalen and Rotterdam there are vip villages ;)) was so boring! No players, because these tickets don't give you entrance to the players lounge and the food was really expensive :rolleyes: The only good thing was that it was a free ticket :lol:
The same in Rotterdam, I won a meet&greet with Richard Krajicek. Ok, they had free food there, but I entered the competition for fun. Richard walks around all day, you can see him ten times a day. And again, no players in the vip section. Maybe they meet some Dutch players, but I don't care about that or the vip village. I just don't understand why they get the best seats and most of them don't even care about tennis at all :(

I shouldn't feel a stranger here, with all these french videos/interviews, but the posts are in english, and everybody seems so much at ease with this language... :help: lol

Your English is really great! IF only my French was as good.:)

First time I saw him there I was like "Ooooohh, look! It's Richard!", but I got used to bumping into him everywhere at that tournament :p

I didn't win a vip ticket, some woman took all prize winners there to meet Richard and Daphne and after that we could go out again :lol:
And I didn't win the vip ticket in Rosmalen either, I got it from someone who didn't need it :p
Ofcourse the corporate sponsors wives feel very happy at a vip villages where everything is expensive, a student like me would do better in the players lounge, where food and drinks are free :lol:

Really? That's very soon!
But maybe they prepared a lot already, who knows when he proposed :p
Assuming that he did, because I don't really see him as the modern guy who lets the girl ask :lol:

Since I didn't see a topic for Guez and my question relates to his coach :angel:, so I think this is the best place to post it. :p
Who knows where to find when Bruno travels with him?
Guez is in q-draw for Rotterdam. :)
