Welcome to grass 2011
 
So it starts by qualy of Queen's club.

Not easy draw (but nowadays nothing is easy for Arnaud). Clement is 3rd seed and faces Rajeev Ram in the first round, dangerous opponent on grass, he took the Newport title in 2009.
Two WC's from GBR in the second, and maybe huge-serving Wolmarans in the 3rd.

Tomorrow Arnie plays first at 10.00 English time.


Allez!!!

We will take your thread ;) So i was saying that Arno is not very lucky with QD of 250 lately as He draws Rajeev Ram in first round well that guy he's not a very good player but grass is his best surface and with his big serve he can win a match on grass without playing well. An english WC would have been better to start. Well good luck to him against Ram and his serve :o

Yes deleting thread is impossible but now the thread will be ignore now going back on grass subject :D

As you said a tricky draw with big servers who play well on grass well at least who win some matches on grass :lol: Then there is still have the question of his body of his injuries. Pity his double ranking is so bad and he can't enter doubles going to Roehampton without a win would not be easy. He should not be seed there with his current ranking.

He needs to do well in qualy to prove Wimbledon organizers that he deserves the WC. I'm obsessed with this WC subject, always thinking o f his chances getting one :)

Stupid scoreboard, Arnie is on the farthest court - the only one where it's always frozen. :devil:

He has 6-3 3-6 3-0 now. Every set Clement made an early break, but was broken back in both previous sets.Hope this won't repeat in the last, i'm waiting for some change for about 20 minutes, i won't be surprised if the next scorboard will be when the match finishes:lol:

Unfortunately, Ram has a very good 1st serve %, but anyway Arnaud returns quite good as i see from stats.

Nooo...New scoreboard have just released. Clement leads 5-4, was broken back again!

The score is now frozen with 3 match points for Arnaud in the tie break ! They want us to become crazy !?

Edit : The match is finished but we don't have the winner...

I'm already crazy!! :devil:

10 minutes waiting at this 6-3, drank a cup of tea, and then it all disappeared and didn't appear in the result list!

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
I hope he won, he was leading in each set and in the tie break ! For the confidence a loss would be tough :(

The 2nd round is this afternoon, isn't it ? We'll see if Arnaud's name appears on the scoreboard :D

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
It seems it was a classic match for Arno :lol: He forgot how to close the match. It was a bit long for a grass match no :confused: Well he could be tired. His opponent is 18 yo :eek: :lol: so more fresh :devil: I never heard of that Morgan but Arno will need to be focus and 2 match in one days god they are tough with our veteran

Fat Camel 06-04-2011 01:14 PM

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
He won!!! :worship:

Next should be easier, i hope! He'll play with british 18-old WC George Morgan, he's 986 in the world.

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
He plays again in some minutes. So, Soulage, that was even better that he got Ram in the first match, not the second in one day ;)

Hope his body is ok. I really don't understand, why they can't start the qualy on Friday? He just finished the tough game :o
Allez!

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
When he was leading 6-1 3-1 i thought it would be an easy win, but no...
He had 5-3, 5 mp, 3 in a row, but missed everything and lost his serve afterwards...5-5 now:mad:

soulage 06-04-2011 03:12 PM

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
As i was watching womens final i follow on scoreboard and Arno missed 5 MP on the teenager's serve and now from 5-3 in the second set it's 5-5. He may have missed his chance the old body could not held the distance and if we add frustration :o. How he can miss all this chances :eek:

The serve of Arno is very doubtful and now the teenager seem more confident on serve that at the beginning. That's not a good sign

Re: Welcome to grass 2011
 
Well it was a big choke poor serves stats and a bit lucky that is only a teenager in front of him :angel:. I'm sure he was tired two matches in a day for a guy who played so few lately is tough we will try to retain only the win and not the 4/13 :help: on BP and the choke
