the draw is out and looks like (because it is still a bit confusing on the official site) arnaud is playing montanes 1st round, the winner of which will face berdych.

The draw I saw looked fine and there was the same Berdych looking for the winner of Clement/Montanes.
Well, bonne chance Arnaud! I'd like to see him playing Berdych, it would be an interesting encounter.

he won 6-4, 6-1 (he was up 3-0 in the 1st...)

on to meet berdych.

they've only played once and that was at miami 2005. #46 berdych retired leaving #124 clement the winner who was ahead anyway at 6-3, 3-0.
now it's #15 berdych vs #51 clement.:rolleyes:

doubles:
CLEMENT, Arnaud (FRA)/LLODRA, Michael (FRA) v ALMAGRO, Nicolas (ESP)/VERDASCO, Fernando (ESP)

I think Arnaud's style can really bother Berdych as well Berdych has struggled of late.

Big chance for Arnaud too win a nice match here.

Make us proud :cool:

Allez Arnaud :yeah:

The best thing to do at a basketball match :lol:

And he could do it better against Berdych :(

Arnaud CLEMENT (FRA)/Michael LLODRA (FRA) vs Brendan EVANS (USA)/Ryan SWEETING (USA)

they won 6-3, 7(10)-6

i walked away disappointed from the live scores when the tie-break was 3-6 only to come back planning to face the fact that they lost, but they pulled through :banana:

it would have been pretty sad if they had lost to these players ranked #376 and #1019 in doubles! :silly:

Men's Doubles: Quarterfinals
Arnaud Clement (FRA)
Michael Llodra (FRA) def. Mark Knowles (BAH)
Daniel Nestor (CAN) [3]
3-6,6-1,[10-5]

C'est très bien mais je trouve que Llodra n'a pas été très reglo avec Santoro quand j'y repense. Il lui a dit qu'il préférait arrêter avec lui en double car il souhaitait se consacrer au simple ! Or en simple rien de nouveau il est toujours aussi mauvais (désolée) et il joue en double à chaque tournoi. Donc il préférait jouer avec arnaud et ainsi faciliter les choses avec la coupe davis et Forget à mon avis.
Tant mieux si ils jouent bien ensemble, mais je préférais son association avec Santoro, ils étaient géniaux ensemble et j'ai adoré les voir jouer à Roland Garros.
Arnaud peut jouer avec n'importe qui de toute façon (avec seb notamment).


I think Llodra was not very fair with his former double teamate Santoro... he decided to stop to play with him cos he wanted to focuse on his single career, and everybody knows his results :rolleyes: he continues to play as much in double but with arnaud.

(Skipping the French part)

I was wondering about that too. But I don't think Fabrice minds to play with Zimonjic, everytime I see them, it looks like they have a lot of fun together :D

you mean... mika ditched fabrice because he knew fabrice's not popular (??) with guy forget, so in order to secure his spot in DC, he pairs up with arnaud?

:eek: wow, no wonder they say playing tennis needs chess skills.

what i can see is that usually before DC, french players try as hard as they can in tournaments to impress guy (the lucky captain). arnaud/mika must be doing what they can to justify their doubles slot right now.

lol, i'm being facetious here: if so, why do they play so 'ugly', i.e. arnaud with the balls kids and micka...well...did you see my post in micka's board? that wouldn't impress me!

but, since they play well as team, it seems to make sense to bank on a known team rather than pair two who don't usually play together.

:confused: i mean they try to impress guy with their doubles result. i don't think guy cares whether arnaud is rude to people as long as he wins DC rubbers for him.

i don't understand your point at all??? well of course there are many ways to impress a captain :devil: but i won't speculate :devil:
