I know it's off topic, but I just want to close out my comment from Tuesday. Just snapped this pic on my phone while watching Simon's match v. Nalbandian on tv.

This is who I referred to with Tuslane. Guess I should post it in Simon's forum...

I see now he's wearing sweat bands on his wrists. I guess I saw him with the bracelet during warm-ups.
i never saw his feet before, i don't think. even the umpire's watching and perhaps thinking (and then after all that trouble, went on losing 6-0)

thanks for all the news and reports, and pics

Honestly Higherlaw I don't think the young boy is cute at all. lol
Don't think he's his young brother, but he makes me think to Louis Sarkozy (son of..)

Maybe the son of Thierry they have the same eyes For Toronto qualies Arno didn't draw a canadian WC he draws the american veteran Yani, american on his soil so if he plays dramatically worse as said Tipsy no way he can win this.

Wow, your phone makes some good quality photos.
You should, there sure is someone who'll know who it is.

He does look like Louis. And I agree, I don't think he's cute. But he does remind me of Gilles. Maybe a cousin?

If he's Thierry's son, he sure has to look like his mom. I don't think he resembles Thierry at all.

Arnaud has lost his match against Yani 7/6 ; 6/2

I followed the first set. He was a break down but came back. He had set point to finally loose the set on a double fault in the tie-break . After he probably gave up as usual this year after a long first set loss...
His serve was better yesterday whereas his opponent was serving awful at the beggining but it didn't really help Arno.

It's a pity we never have his opinion about all these losses, if he had an explanation

thanks for the report. i didn't even know there's live scores for masters tournaments, i'm so out of touch lol

don't know if he really gave up, or just not fit enough these days?

i don't think he'll be honest about any reason with the public... i just hope that he's honest with himself ie. not in self denial.

Thanks for your report Lesliem i would say i'm not surprised and losing again a tie-break How many he lost this year it's incredible He’s must be really down at this moment and it’s hard to believe that’s in those moments he’s not thinking about retirement Now he regularly lost against guys over the top 200 like Torebko, Ebden, Smycek, Yani and for sure he’s affected by that.No idea if his tendinitis is a problem as he’s quite secret about that but he’s not competitiv actually and it’s surely more tough when you are in USA for 6 weeks as this must be long . Maybe he should go back in France and come back only for the USO because the cincy qualies are always tough than in Toronto and honestly i don't think he's able to beat somebody those days.

Arno will play cinci qualies, at first round he draws Ramon Delgado another veteran (yeah older than Arno ) who beat him in....1999 . So wait and see !

I heard that he will play in "L'Open de la baie de somme" in september !?

He can still find older player to play Delgado is not the best player of the draw but he gave good resistance to Istomin last week and I think that the biggest problem is Arno and as Delgado knows the problem of Arno he will surely believe more in his chances today and offers a tough match to Arno. Anyway good luck to him and we can't say he's not trying.

For the open de la baie de somme he played it in 2007 but i read nothing for 2010 field

L'open de la baie de somme is one of the biggest tournament of the circuit national des grands tournois français. It's the week-end before Metz.

Back to Cincy, he won 64/63. Tough start with an early break down then more easy with just a little problem at 3-3 in the second set where he saved BP. Next round seems quite difficult with Falla who is in a great shape and the forecast looks bad for tomorrow with a lot of rain.

It happens sometimes, comme par surprise, sans prévenir
Well, it was against Delgado ? Good, good, I hate this player.

Great that he won. I don't really have in mind that he can't handle rain breaks, so I guess it will just give him some extra rest.

No rain and a loss 46/57

It was a tough draw indeed. I was also following Adrian in Istanbul but to sum up with the stats it looks that it was a bit better despite many opportunities missed
He missed a couple of break back opportunites at the end of first set after a slow start. He served for the second set at 5-3 but Falla broke back and the colombian closed the match winning the last 4 games even if Arno had 2 BP in the last one. His confidence is still not great but the level of his game is maybe better The problems is that he doesn't win and now he has to wait again a long week before New Haven what's a pity he can play the doubles to keep him busy . Tough summer for him but his form is maybe on his way back let's see if he's not too much affected by this new loss.

The set point of his match yesterday by the guy of likes arno . It's in the middle of that video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kp5nmM1yhoo
