Re: Arnaud Clement retires from tennis
Clément was a very talented and wily shotmaker who was great to watch when he was on in form. He was able to take the ball very early like Agassi.
To be honest there were many times when I thought he was an asshole for his treatment of ballboys, but now is not the time to go into great detail on that.
That 2001 Aussie Open SF when he saved 2 match points to beat his doubles partner at the time Grosjean was entertaining stuff. He was 2 points away from beating Agassi at RG in 1999, and destroyed him in R2 of the US Open in 2000. Admittedly Agassi had a lot of personal problems to deal with at the time, but still a very impressive victory.
Got a doubles slam at Wimbledon in 2007 to add to his singles achievements as well.
