michelleg So next year you'll come and have un cafe avec moi? (And sit next to cafe I've ever had!) I am thinking I might go again next year if I decide not to go to Madrid.

Marine I was thursday so I didn't see you.

michelleg Marine-at what match did you see Caro in Bercy??? I was there with her :-) I was there sunday through tuesday....
12-10-2003 07:45 PM
michelleg Well, according to some stories, I've been kissed on the cheek by him (although I distinctly remember DiP doing that, I don't remember Nono doing it...) AND I've run my fingers through his hair. ALL in the same night.

Truth be told, it was 2 in the morning, I was terribly drunk and the Arnauds were walking us home after a night in the club (Indy) We had started the night drinking with Martin Verkirk and his coach and ended up with the Arnauds...I remeber bits and pieces (like scaring the bejeezus out of Nono by touching his hair...wanted to see if he had his Alice band in...and walking home barefoot, arm-in-arm with DiP-like a girl could EVER forget that!!!)

Its sort of like a big fog, with a little visibility here and there...

Anyone in for a tourney with me?? LOL, I behave better than that most of the time. It's just too easy in Indy, as we used to party there when I was in Uni.

Marine Yes, I was not sure, but at tv, after his win, I had seen him going to see her and kiss her, and I was a bit surprised..."Is she a fan or a friend ?", I thought ! lol Hehe, I know Arnaud is lovable with his fans (in spite of what Esther thinks), but, at this point... ...I belive I'm going to make ennfort the next year, and try to meet him !!! I want a kiss too !!
12-10-2003 02:14 PM
michelleg Yep, that's the same Caro. Arnaud does know her, as after Metz, he gave her a kiss on the cheek and also gave her his blue Lacoste shirt he was wearing!!!!!

Marine Michelle, I suppose you speak about caroline, the girl with orange hair and very pale face? (lol)
I already saw a pic of her in Monteral with Arnaud, and this year in Metz, I watched her at tv, she was just behinf the empire, then, in Bercy, I saw her in the crowd too. She is everywhere, no ? It seems that Arnaud knows her, no ?

michelleg Lizabeth - I wish I could come to Melbourne! In fact, one of the girls from the official Clement site is coming with me to Indy (Caro, who was with me in Montreal and Bercy) so hopefully we will be at the player party...depends on where it is held and if I can get her "proper identification" (its usually held in a club, which means you have to be 21 to even enter.) Last year there were so many "underage" players in the tournament field that it had to be held at a restaurant so the majority could actually attend!!!

Although player parties can be kind of scary (as in rowdy)...Killer (Paul Kilderry) is probably the wildest one I've seen. The Frenchy coaches can be a hoot as well (theres one, think its Llodra's coach, who made rounds with the ladies saying some pretty forward things...he grossed me out entirely.) That's where I met Thierry and Remi, in fact. I sat down with Thierry to get away from Llodra's coach, LOL.

Re: Arnaud,Paulo and many more to play an exhibition in Geneva!

Marat and Carlos didn't show up *sad*

I wanted photos

Michelle - I think you need to come down here to Melbourne and take me to some of these player parties! LOL

I was going to go to one this year but I didn't get around to it because I was at another party instead

(Had it been the OFFICIAL players party I would have skipped my friends room mates party and gone - but since it wasn't, I didn't bother)

Here some results:

Amélie Mauresmo & Paul-Henri Mathieu beat Guy Forget & Bacsinsky (the swiss new hope) in two tie-breaks.

Amélie Mauresmo & Fabrice Santoro (practising for Hopman Cup ) beat Mansour Bahrami & Maleeva (Manuela, I think), 8/6, 7/5.

Guy Forget & J Hlasek played against Paul-Henri Mathieu and Yannick Noah & Arnaud Boetsch played against Boris Becker and Mansour Bahrami!

Marine Arnaud and Dip were not in Geneva because they are in stage in l'Alpe d'huez (ski resort) with their coach.
And I think Paulo is on stage too, in les Vosges (mountains near Strasbourg)

michelleg And now replying to the off-topic, but highly interesting conversation we were all having about doing the tennis "en masse.."

I have decided to go solo mostly because I have found that I meet more players when I am alone versus with a group. I got to have dessert with Fernando Vicente only because the others in Montreal were back at the tennis and werent hovering about. He's my new best friend, lol. It was rather ironic, because the first thing we talked about was the "group" and where were they. He said he had thought that I was French because he had heard me speaking with Caro and Amelie (the French girls that came to Montreal this past year) and to the waitstaff in French and that I wasn't loud like the rest of the ladies in the group. He said that Americans are too loud for him and was I sure they wouldn't be coming back? (It was 1 in the afternoon...they were at the tennis, I was back at the hotel.)

I have been to player parties, have had the best fun when it was only two of us. Even then, I still felt like I was responsible for someone else (I spent most of the night trying to set her up with a certain tennis player and then ended up on the dance floor with him myself!!!)

So, I now travel almost alone, but pick and choose verrrrrry carefully who I sit with and travel with at tournaments. Miami I am hoping to have one of my French friends (she runs a DiP site which is fab!) with me-we were at Bercy together. I remember one time at Miami, taking pics of Tommy Haas all by my lonesome, nobody else watching him practice...I was getting great smiles, etc. until someone that I knew came along and practically started yelling/making a commotion which distracted him. I ended up just leaving because I was so embarrassed.

So its just me and my superduper zoom lens....(soon to be replaced with magnificent digital SLR camera!!!!) I like it better that way.

And it also has helped that I am blonde (LOL!!!) and look about ten years younger than I actually am (sometimes I still get carded!)
