well i have to start with arnaud first, right?

he's got a bye for the first round, will play winner of sanguinetti or ljubicic in the second. mardy fish is the next seeded player that he may run into...

it doesn't look too bad... but with a first round exit in indian wells it's hard to say. i hope the doubles success has given him more confidence!! go arnaud :kiss:

i'm so confused, i looked on a draw a couple of days ago or somethign and thought i saw Seb was playing Fish...and then i looked on the official draw like the one on Adobe that pops up and stuf and i thought it said that Mardy had beaten Seb!!!! i was so upset!!! and now i'm just confused.

When does the actual tournament start? this scheduling is so weird

i checked out the atp site this morning and yeah it's an adobe pop-up.

lol... seb's got a bye too and then the winner of enqvist/lapentti. don't think he feels as happy as arnaud but then one must have confidence..

miami takes up two weeks but won't start until later this week? friday for first rounds perhaps? it has a slightly smaller field than the slams.

OK so he was making a yukky "I just won" face, but he really is cute. Going to pick up my pics today.

I would die to go watch him in Miami tomorrow v. Coria. But reality beckons and once again, I busy at work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AAAARRRRGGHHHHH

And goshdarnit, Nono always looks so lovely in blue. *sigh* I need to get my arse to Miami.

Does that mean I can have an Aussie one? :)

Not really, it's confusing enough being "irish" when I'm not.

Well done to Nono and Séb. It wasn't really a fair match. Agustin played his singles match right before it.


I don't think I can have a saltire, anyway. :( I think my only option is a union jack and I'll stick my wet fingers in an electrical socket before I put that on my profile. :explode: :lol:

great news for the doubles!!!!! and merci beaucoup marine for finding the pics at tennis.info !!! i know the lady photographer may be short but not that short, to have to look up to arnaud.... what a great angle, lol... :kiss:

liz i think the flags are a great way to express one's tennis loyalties.... after all i've already filled in 'sydney' for location so it shouldn't be confusing anyone. or does it? lol... (c'mon irish, you can do it)

michelleg
03-29-2004, 10:56 PM
Wahoo! So theres still time for me to get my sorry arse to Miami and see the boys in action!

Nice job to Seb and Nono, bummer that they had to win that way though.

the new french doubles kings will play first up on court 1 tomorrow. michelle pleeeeeaase go and support them! with their recent performance, all doubles specialists should be quivering in their boots.....umm shoes.

it has suddenly occured to me that a guy that i've seen in adelaide for two years was this benneteau?? curly hair??? longish???

coria is playing very well in the singles !! and clay hasn't even started yet. i wonder if jcf feels very threatened in his throne......

I couldn't go because :bigcry: I was too hungover. It was a wicked one, indeed. In fact, I don't think I could have even operated a motor vehicle legally at 8am this morning....

Sorry that the twins lost. :(

Via, is this the boy? I read that he is the fifth man on the DC team.....

No kidding on the depth of French tennis, testament to a quality program.

michelle...... we thank you for your support of le petit nono ;)

is that your only recent pic of him??

michelleg
04-09-2004, 01:09 AM
nope, just a pic I took from Montreal last summer.

My pics of him haven't been very good as of late. Seems my lens has this Argentine-Spanish thing going on...

Scary-I have more Benneteau pics from Miami than I do of anyone! And if you knew me well enough, to know that I actually sat through an entire match (and didn't leave to go to a Feli practice) is a feat in and of itself. I had lovely company at the match, though, which made it exceptionally enjoyable.
