I remember when I first started watching tennis properly in 2002/2003 and they were tipping him to retire then . The guy has been on tour for ages and he's an example of how to make the most of your tennis talents.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

The thing I remember about him most is the 2001 AO Semi Finals vs Sebastian Grosjean. The Australian crowd trying to get into a match where two, relatively unknown, french guys were in the semis of a major. It was a strange atmosphere.

That was an insane match. Wow. Definitely one I remember growing up as a kid. Grosjean had 2-0 sets lead too IIRC

I'm surprised by the news but it's also in "l'Equipe", main sports newspaper in France.

I'm surprised by a so sudden decision but his carreer was a great one, great contribution to the tennis tour, esp. in France. Had every part of a complete player, I guess, including what he did in doubles, his mental part ... looks like a model for other players.

Always looked very nice on French TV.

Would definitely look better for Davis cup team than Pioline, as Clement has the sense of the "collective" while Pioline was a solitary guy.

I'm also surprised you say that Pioline is now his opponent as I thought it was Grosjean. Pioline looks more like the "Federation guy" who will be harsher with players.

About that Australian open semifinal personally I was sorry that Grosjean didn't win it : the mental part gave Clément the final advantage but it would have been great that Grosjean had a slam final. They were good friends, esp. in that time, and Grosjean seemed to lack the killer instinct in that match whereas Clément has always been a born fighter, he was very impressive for that.

Would be nice to see him playing Doubles in the future.

A shame that he lost to a mug like De Schepper in his last match but Arnaud is a legend and will be a legend forever.

Wish him the best.

Au revoir Arnaud! I will miss you!
I remember how my sis used to annoy the hell out of me when she first became a fan, but a few years later I couldn't resist anymore. Arnaud was just too likable.
