I don't know if it's from the same broadcast of mixed doubles as you've got over there but here is a little video with post match comments of Tatiana and Arnaud from French TV: http://www.golovin-attitude.com/medi...s-saison-2008/
French and English speech in the same time, my ears
Yes, that's the same one! Thanks for linking it.

I used my cell phone to take a picture from my TV from the recording on my DVR. I don't have a way to copy what's recorded on the DVR to DVD. I'm thinking of trying to use the video on my cell phone to record the recording of Arnaud's English interview. IF it works, I'll post it here.
Please do!
Even if you only get audio it'll make us all very happy, good luck!

France Disappointed To Let Chance Slip
2/01/2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Chris Pike

FRANCE’s Tatiana Golovin and Arnaud Clement were bitterly disappointed not to capitalise on an injured Jelena Jankovic to beat Serbia, but remain alive to reach the final if Argentina knock off the No. 1 seed Serbians on Thursday night.

Golovin and Jankovic are among the hottest rising stars in tennis and the world No. 13 was disappointed the third ranked Serbian pulled out with an upper hamstring injury.

“I was really looking forward to the match against Jelena,” Golovin said.

“It was unfortunate she had to retire as the point of being here is to play as many matches against top players as you can. I hope she’s OK and I’m sure I’ll get many more chances to play against her.”

It looked as though France would be handed the tie when Jankovic retired from the singles match, but she returned for the doubles and put the French away in three sets.

After a tremendous opening tie doubles performance, Golovin and Clement couldn’t replicate that form despite Jankovic being on one leg.

“It’s always disappointing to lose, but when it’s this tight and you have chances to win even more so. I’m glad I got to play with Arnaud again, we have another tie to come and we are still alive,” she said.

“It’s almost impossible to play against an injured player. She was limping, hitting aces and winners, so it doesn’t make it easy to keep your concentration. As a professional, though, you have to learn to just focus on your own game.”

It was a disappointing singles result again for Clement, who also lost in straight sets to Argentina’s Juan Ignacio Chela on his return to the Hyundai Hopman Cup.

His doubles experience of 10 career titles guided France to a win over Argentina in its opening tie, but he admits to being off his game against the Serbians.

“My concentration wasn’t affected, but it is tough to play somebody who is injured,” Clement said.

“It’s also tough for the men in mixed doubles to play on the girl. When the girl is injured, it’s even more difficult. I didn’t have a good day, though, that’s for sure.”

France remains in contention for the final if it can beat Chinese Taipei on Thursday night and if Argentina beat Serbia.




I believe him, I don't understand how men play against girls in mixed doubles, so against an "injured" player... but he was too much stupid and nice with her since the lost !
He's too weak with girls, I don't think mixed double is a good competiion for him.

i can see why arnaud doesn't like playing mixed doubles... he doesn't like punishing the girls (or suffer the indignity that they may hit harder than he )

mercury is the stuff inside thermometers

i actually think that younger wives make older husbands look even older. not that the men realise that themselves

i won't be surprised that arnaud's girlfriends will be progressively younger each time
Thanks, I never translated the Dutch word in English At least I learned something today, I've been doing useless things all day
