he spend two days in his bed. he deceived http://www.ouest-france.fr/actu/actu...9-aud_actu.Htm

Challenger de Cherbourg. Le Français, physiquement vidé par une grippe, n'a été que l'ombre de lui-même face à un joueur Allemand classé au-delà de la 1000e place mondiale il y a 8 jours. Heureusement, il reste Dimitrov.

L'analyse
Arnaud Clément était-il au niveau hier soir à Cherbourg ?

NON. « On se voit après le match... si je tiens encore debout. » Il fallait sans doute voir un signe dans cette petite phrase. Malade, le Français n'a été que l'ombre de lui-même. Lent, incapable de bouger ses jambes, de se dégager sur la balle... Dans ce qui a été le plus mauvais match du Challenger depuis le début de la semaine, Arnaud Clément s'est incliné contre un joueur classé au-delà de la 1000e place mondiale il y a encore 8 jours. Alors certes, Stefan Seifert reste sur une demi-finale au Challenger de Wolfsburg. Cela lui a d'ailleurs fait gagner 422 places à l'ATP. Mais sans ce résultat qui a offert une entrée dans le tableau final de Cherbourg, pas sûr que l'Allemand, au niveau de jeu pas forcément flamboyant, aurait passé les qualifs... « Je n'avais pas d'énergie, physiquement, j'étais vidé, concède Clément. Une grippe, c'est crevant pour l'organisme. Si ça avait été un tournoi à l'étranger, je ne me serai pas déplacé. C'est pour ça que j'ai demandé à jouer seulement le mercredi. Avant, ça n'aurait pas été possible. J'ai passé deux jours au lit. »

Déçu, Clément l'était forcément mais en salle de presse, le teint blanc, ila surtout affiché un certain fatalisme. « J'ai donné le maximum avec mes petits moyens. Et malgré ça, je peux presque m'en sortir au deuxième set. Alors c'est un peu triste de partir là-dessus. Je n'aime pas ça. A Marseille, je n'avais pas pu défendre mes chances à cause de mon épaule. Ce n'est pas une bonne période. »

That's why he play on wednesday i think he's not lucky. They write he was slow without energy. When things goes wrong all go wrong.
i'd rather he's sick too, but it doesn't mean he doesn't have other problems still lingering

i hardly remember arno being sick, or retiring in a match. this year really every thing goes wrong!

Oh know... At least there is an explanation...No pain, not poor form, but stupid illness.
Waiting to read Arnaud's comments on facebook.

Re: Winter Indoor Season 2011

yes but he plays the all season on clay since many times and only won one match since 2005 in RG I mean he wants to play RG even if it would need a WC but he could play only few tournaments on clay because two month is too much for him The grass and the indoors are the best surface for him so harcourt would be more logical.

I hope for this and at the same tine still want the other root to follow
I think, he wants to be 100% ready for RG, that's why plays a lot of tournaments on clay.

Re: Winter Indoor Season 2011

Yes he should be around 115-120 next week but he has points to defend from IW and Miami which should put him around 130#. Then clay he's not for him I don't know what he's not playing the challengers on harcourt instead of clay

He stopped 10 days because of his shoulder and what is sure is that he has not a normal serve and not a good game. If he still has a pain nothing good will happend if he's free pain he surely need time to find the rythm and confidence but i'm not sure losing and losing is an help. I hope he will post some news on facebook.

So we wait the grass season to hope betters days on that forum ?

Now indoors is ended and he will play two outdoors hardcourt tournament with Le Gosier and Miami qualies.

It's tough to be a veteran and always losing . In a way it's good to continue if he has still the desire but i'm' not sure an all season like past weeks especially with pains would be the most interesting for him and for us if at least he was playing doubles . Soon he will have a dramatic ranking in single


He's alt in Casablanca which surely means he will do the all clay season. It's not this who will help him to find an average form . Last year he was playing too much and now we have very few things to follow . loss in first round follows loss in first round.
Yeah, i forgot to say about 15-40.
He will fall to somewhere around 115 in the rankings, still close to TOP 100. But we can't make any wishes for clay season if he loses everything on hard
Le Gosier will be very tough, cause there will play losers fron IW, and i think no explanations needed for Miami
I hope this is still the consequences of shoulder injury and when he will be helthy..ok, i should not talk about future

Re: Winter Indoor Season 2011

he needs to be injury free, then he can think about winning against the 'nobodies'

if he does reach the semi-final, it would be cause for our celebration
