Esther, thank you for all the information. No problem on the pictures, just glad you're having a good time!

Seems Arnaud was fined, along with some others, for his obscenity during that match:
From heraldsun.com.au
AUSTRALIAN Open officials have wasted little time in a crackdown on player behaviour at Melbourne Park.

With the second round yet to finish, 12 players have been charged and fined.

Vince Spadea and Arnaud Clement were both fined $560 for audible obscenities.

Nicolas Almagro, Juan Ignacio Chela and Boris Pashanski were docked the same amount for racquet abuse.

And 2002 champion Thomas Johansson was penalised $560 for unsportsmanlike behaviour following his first-round defeat to Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis.

Hugo Armando, Alexadre Kudrayavtsev and Bjorn Rehnqvist were fined $280 for audible obscenities.

Gilles Muller, Philipp Petzchner and New South Welshman Nathan Healey were hit with the same fine for racquet abuse.


FYI, I'm working on some screen caps from the Schuettler match which I hope to post later today. In the meantime, here's a cap of the girls with the owl tattoos.

THURSDAY- saw Arnauds doubles match today. Mika and arnaud played pretty well, closed out the match pretty easily. Not much to comment on really. Some really loud music started playing in the middle of the match (Robbie Williams Rock DJ haha) and i thought arnaud would have made more of a fuss (a la US open when a concert was too loud and he complained like a baby) but seemed alright.

I will post photos tomrorow.

Here are some screen caps from what I thought was a funny show by Arnaud during his match vs Schuettler regarding a bad line call.

During the Venus/Camille match the commentators said Camille was dating Arnaud. Old information..., or is there something we should know?

I don't think it's true as Camille said in an itw that she will leave Aix en Provence to live and practice in Paris after AO. If they were dating again, I guess she would stay in Aix. But everything is possible with love and Camille is so pretty ( If my girlfriend reads that, I will sleep on the sofa tonight )

She's very sweet, what a pity...

Camille

Arnaud was not trying to be funny. He was clearly quite angry and walked over to the Chair and let him know it. Then he then complained to the line judge, too. I thought was funny, however!

Camille was playing for a Paris club during Interclubs. I thought she was practising in Paris, too?

I've noticed such hmmm... emotional ways of complaining are very typical for some French players and they see nothing funny or odd about that, just take it absolutely seriously and as a norm. But if I see their matches only a couple of times in a year it does look hilarious lol

Yes, she's playing for Lagardere Paris racing for two years now, but she was still working with her long time coach Eric Bremond in Aix en Provence. Bremond split with her because he wanted to dedicate all his time to his wife's carreer. I guess that Camille's new coach is from her club.

these two guys mentioned in the same line for the same offence... unimaginable in the past for me.

because he isn't winning as much as he used to? i certainly feel that he's going through the motion now with the obligatory autographs for fans. he doesn't seem to care any more.

well i saw another doubles match on friday (they just had to make sure i arrived on time every morning ) this time at a court on the vodafone side, and guess what... there're some beatles songs played repeatedly (not even performed by the original fabs) in the background, and even i found it pretty annoying!!!! lol

mika at one point couldn't keep his mouth shut about that any more... and he addressed the umpire as 'mate' when he complained about the music it took that umpire a second to realise that he's that 'mate' that mika was talking to.....

Funny, I had used that exact term for him also . Getting mad like that is so counter-productive to the issue at hand...winning the darn match !

Thanks for your pictures.

I would rather go shopping with all that money
In Euros it doesn't look so bad, only 381,63 at this moment, but still... If Arno wants to lose that money, he can better give it to me, that's about the amount my trip to Marseille costs me
