well, i don't know about other sports, but with this match i've already told you that the crowd was waiting for federer! watching the action was not as interesting as watching big names...

here are two more: (i don't know when others will be coming)


the crowd on this corner seemed more excited maybe mika was yelling loud enough


this must have been taken earlier in the match, while the sun's still out

(as usual if anyone wants to save the photos to anywhere other than your home computer... please credit the photographer and link back to my site. copyright )

Re: *Olympic Games*

Thanks everyone for the match reports and info.
First I felt a little sad about not being able to follow the Olympics on holiday, but after reading this, it wasn't a bad week for my holiday.
Poor guys, after so much fighting going home with nothing
for Arno and Micka!

That's so true no win in 4 month but a really well beginning in this olympic tournament but we can understand their frustration after all these missed opportunities The medal was so close ! Their voices in the FFT interview is

For USO they will not have the same motivation.

Re: *Olympic Games*

thanks marine for the interview.

to be fair they had fought well after such a draining match (and loss) the day before. it's not often that you lose twice on two days. i hope they don't stay depressed for long. they came into beijing in a poor form, not having won much in the last few months. this has been better than expected... if they also get to the semis at us open, they should be happy!

Re: *Olympic Games*

Après leur défaite face aux frères Bob et Mike Bryan (3-6, 6-3, 6-3), samedi lors du match pour la médaille de bronze, Arnaud Clément et Michaël LLodra avaient bien du mal à positiver. Tristes, déçus, abattus : les Français ne parvenaient pas à trouver les mots justes pour décrire leurs sentiments.

Arnaud Clément, Michaël Llodra , vous étiez venus pour le titre. Finalement, vous échouez au pied du podium. C'est très dur...
Arnaud Clément: Bien entendu. L'objectif n'est pas atteint (long soupir). On est tous les deux très touchés, très affectés. On savait que ce ne serait pas facile. Ca ne l'a pas été. On a eu beaucoup d'occasions hier (vendredi). Quelques-unes aujourd'hui (samedi). Je ne sais pas quoi dire. C'est comme ça. C'est dur, c'est cruel. C'est notre sport, c'est le tennis, ce sont les Jeux Olympiques. Dans toutes les disciplines, il y a un quatrième. Et le quatrième est forcément plus frustré que le dixième ou le vingtième. Là, cette année, en double, les quatrièmes, c'est nous.

On vous sent très, très affectés...
Arnaud Clément: C'est l'une des défaites les plus dures que j'ai eu à subir de toute ma carrière. C'est bien plus dur qu'en Grand Chelem. Des Grand Chelem, il y en a quatre par an, et on a toujours l'occasion de se refaire quelques semaines ou quelques mois après.

Michaël, comme Arnaud vous semblez très touché moralement...
Michaël Llodra: Oui, c'est sûr. Comme le disait Arnaud, on est très touchés par la défaite. On était venus ici pour faire quelque chose de grand. Essayer de ramener une médaille. Malheureusement, on échoue tout près du but. C'est très dur.

Comment expliquez-vous votre défaite ? Est-ce la conséquence du match d'hier ? Ou les Bryan étaient-ils tout simplement trop fort ?
Michaël Llodra: C'est un tout. Hier (vendredi), on est passés très près. Aujourd'hui, on n'est pas passés très loin non plus... C'est la dure réalité du sport. J'ai du mal à trouver les mots pour décrire notre déception, notre frustration.

Vous avez comme beaucoup d'athlètes été pris par ce rêve olympique. Vous l'avez vu de près...
Michaël Llodra: Oui, de très près. Hier, on n'est pas passés loin... A deux points près. Aujourd'hui encore, tout s'est joué à quelques points près.

Vous verra-t-on à Londres en 2012 ?
Michaël Llodra: Aujourd'hui je n'ai pas envie de penser aux Jeux Olympiques de 2012. Pour l'instant, on est en 2008. On vient simplement de perdre notre match pour la médaille de bronze, et j'ai du mal à comprendre ce qui se passe. C'est dur.»

Their reaction makes me feel bad again.
arnaud said he's very very affected by this loss, it's one of his worst loss in his career, the thougher (emotionnaly).
Micka was asked about a possible participation in London in 2012, and answered it was too far, he doesn't want to think as far for the moment.
Their voice conveys their sadness.
Total respect for these 2 great guys, I share their olympic values. I hope a glorious future for them in double. They deserve it.
Big to them
