He's playing the Hopman Cup instead of Gaël, that's probably why he didn't enter a tournament for the first week of the year.

Default Re: 2008 tourneys



(i had thought of that when i saw he wasn't playing adelaide, but gael was still listed for hopman cup then, and for quite a while since)

session 7 will be the only time when we'll get coverage, being in the day-time. which is good for me cos it won't get in the way of my new year's plans lol

however the hopman cup coverage does a lot of short segments showing players other than those playing on the day... so if i'm not glued to the telly every day then i may still miss out on an arnaud appearance

btw merry christmas to everyone (who celebrates it)

Well, that's good news! Last year the Tennis Channel showed the Hopman Cup, but I don't know what happening this year!


Djokovic and Jelena, what a team!!

edit: I'll get session 7 also! Live, no less .

Default Re: 2008 tourneys

i suppose we should be grateful that the tiny veteran has cancelled his holiday and will come back next week.

or perhaps he had always known that gael was in trouble and he had always been on standby? how else can you explain that all the other frenchies are enlisted in adelaide, except for this arnaud?

anyway we'll be holding our breath for session 7... and thrashing by the serbian team? lol

Ofcourse Holland won't show any of it Like I care to see the Dutch team play if they even get in
Sometimes I just want to call all channels and say 'Helloooooo, there are more (much better) tennisplayers in the world!' But who am I?
Maybe I can find a place online where I can watch.

i can't find any promise of live scores or streaming on the official website (since it's an ITF competition one had higher hopes...) http://www.hopmancup.com.au/

i was hoping our lovely national broadcaster might have something but the video link is apparently broke http://www.abc.net.au/tv/video/preview.htm#?vid=video1

but they may still have something come next week... actually come tomorrow

I've got exactly the same questions! So the new season begins with an old stuff - a lot of questions and a lack of answers... Though personally I don't feel Arnaud's absence in Adelaide might be initially connected with Gael's troubles to play the Hopman Cup, then it would be too bizarre.

Hope those of us who'll get the coverage then will have something to report about
P.S. Even if it's true, the "veteran" sounds horrible And all these articles beginning with the "French veteran Arnaud Clement..." are just killing.

I agree, he just turned 30 a week ago or so, 'the veteran' makes it sound like he's 60 or something

Congrats to Arnaud & Tatiana for beating Argentina. Well, Arnaud lost in singles but fortunately they took the deciding doubles match.

Yeah, congratulations on the first victory of the season... in mixed! lol It's especially odd considering what Tatiana said at her press conference: "He told me he doesn't like to play mixed. So I don't know, he's been winning doubles Grand Slams, but he says he doesn't like to play mixed. So we'll see how it goes."

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Edit: added a couple of pictures from his match against Chela.

Default Re: 2008 tourneys

that is a good result, considering that arnaud never likes to lose playing for france.

so he'd better start loving mixed doubles because that's their best chance to win a match! lol

i hadn't seen or heard anything special about the french team from the broadcast yesterday... except one commentator made it very clear he thought arnaud was past his best years. in other words... lol

thanks for the pics

edit: i now have about 3 minutes of the mixed doubles highlight between france and argentina. if anyone wants it... and you can't find it on youtube or somewhere... i'll see if i can do something about it. arnaud was interviewed afterwards, conversing in fluent english of course....

I also agree that Veteran isnt the right word... 30 is still young.. What are they going to call him when he's 40? Grandpa?

Arnaud said he would like to still play at 35, so whenever some tournament-ticketdesk-guy says he heard Arnaud's retiring we can tell him it's not true
