Re: Wimbledon 2007

I also don't follow the blog, but I've read it now.
It's a really funny story, especially about Mika and the doping control officer

I don't exactly understand what is meant with the part you ask about. What does Wayne Bryan have to say about the preparation of Arno and Mika? I think they should know for themselves how they prepare for a match, drinking wine and joking around could just as easily turn against them.
I guess it's a decision every team has to make for themselves and if one isn't as serious about it as the other, so be it. As long as it works for them I can't say that anyone has to comment about it.
Maybe he should ask Bruno too for a reaction on the preparation of other teams

*bump*
Most of you probably already know this, but the "tennis served fresh" blog linked again during the TMC an old entry of Bodo about their Wimbledon win, I had missed it at the time:
http://tennisworld.typepad.com/tenni...-tribe-on.html

I was wondering about that:
"Of course, this kind of showboating and screwing around can be deeply annoying to opponents who take a slightly more solemn approach to such occasions, but what the hail - you can't exactly call it gamesmanship, although the effect may be the same. I'm going to write Wayne Bryan an email and invite him to weight in on this issue."

Re: Wimbledon 2007

I know that I'm late with my congratulations to Arnaud & Mika! I kept on following the final from scoreboard after our TV changed to the singles final after the first set. I just had to pack my things at the same time because we left early in the next morning to Greece for two weeks of holidays. Not much chance to use internet there and when we got back I had almost forgotten the Wimbly title. But in any case, a tremendous achivement for the boys!!! And thanks for all the pics and articles here.

Oh Casimir, c'est mignon !
Arnaud seems nostalgic about his childhood. lol

Re: Wimbledon 2007

Maybe it was already posted, but I was reading the new "Tennis Magazine" this week-end and Arnaud made me laugh with a quote (there isn't anything interesting about their Wimbledon win otherwise):
Mika says he's glad they faced the Bryans in the final because that way, people can't complain and say they didn't beat any good team.
Arnaud's answer: "Moi, même si j'avais battu Casimir aujourd'hui, j'aurais été content". ("as for me, even if I had beaten Casimir in the final, I'd have been happy" - this is Casimir, it's a show for kids in France).

Re: Wimbledon 2007

well, my guess is, the way it works with the smaller tournaments, the pairing is pretty much last minute, like who's turned up at the tournament. they after all consider themselves as singles players first.

but arnaud and mika are pretty much stable mates at the slams

it's yet to see if there's a doubles reshuffle at the top if knowles/nestor is still breaking up, but looks like nothing will happen to our beloved (just *have* to use this icon again )

ok, maybe he'll play with seb as they did last year, but that would seem odd if mika was there. and, the bryans are the defending champs (and arnaud defending singles champ, of course )

Re: Wimbledon 2007

No, I haven't seen the pic yet
Seems like my Dutch google doesn't want to find news on wimbeldon doubles And I didn't have to time to search very long for pics, but eventually I'll see it.
It will get me back on my cloud when I fall after the bouncing over Arnaud's and Mika's title is wearing off

Nice pics! Thanks

as for the hair, if he hadn't cut it, it wouldn't have grown back so much nicer. there's a purpose in everything
Yes, "I'm not specially introverted" is what he said. But I guess he only wanted to tell that he's not so shy, demure or whatever but still he is nothing comparing to absolutely crazy Micka!

And I totally agree that the new hair are even nicer

I'm glad for you Actually there also was a picture of Bruno throwing his shirt to Micka. I guess you've seen it?

When I went back to the FFT page to check again the audio I've noticed they added a new photo gallery there, it's one dedicated to our heroes. Here it is: http://www.fft.fr/wimbledon/2007/albums/album25. "C'est l'amour!"

BTW What is that yellow band Arnaud is wearing in that pic where he's hugging Mika? I saw it somewhere else too, but can't find out if it means something or is just for fun.

you have my sympathy... a shirtless bruno is as rare as a wimbly title, doesn't come every day.

anyway thank you everyone for the news, reports, and photos!
Thanks Arnaud and Michael for that plan

Thanks
