so you're taking a laptop? that will make you an even better reporter just don't take it into the tournament or you'd be arrested for illegal betting

I listened to his audio interview on the FFT website and he talks again about his injury. He says it was not really a problem tonight, but it's been bothering him for a while now and hampering him in training, so it might be a factor too. (I wonder why he played in DC then - just because they wanted to take their revenge for last year?!)

He says he'll see now with Montalvan what he needs to do to get rid of this injury because for the rest, he really is eager to play, the motivation is not the problem right now.

his form won't change overnight.

as usual he still has the doubles with mika, so he'll still be around for kezzi, and paparazzi

edit: ok now truc has come in with an explanation!
and he's still korean on the singles draw, they haven't updated that. in fact, all two 'koreans' were knocked out yesterday

No, I'll leave it at the hotel. It gets too heavy when one has to carry it around all day. And besides that, it won't fit in my bag, my camera takes almost the entire space
It says on the website the hotel has wireless internet, so hopefully that's true. In the summer another hotel had satellite tv, maybe, but we still watched only French channels for the weather. That was all we could understand

I forget to bet here, so I certainly won't do any illegal bets with real money

Or Kezzi with a paparazzi camera? 15x zoom

Shall I ask him if he prefers to play DC with Korea next time?

But it's not sure he will play in doubles, he will see with Montalvan, but maybe he needs a break to cure his foot/ankle.
That's why I don't get why he couldn't just take a break after the AO...
L'Aixois souffre d'une inflammation de l'articulation de la cheville gauche et n'est pas certain de pouvoir disputer le double avec Michael Llodra jeudi.

The OOP for today says that Bennet-PHM will play against an "alternate team - TBA"...

Just looking for an update here, before I leave, because I didn't understand the alternate team thing in the OOP

Let her come to him instead, Marseille and Aix are much nicer cities, Paris is cliche on Valentine's day

And if that is the case instead of an injury, he didn't have to sign up for doubles at all, everyone knows Valentine's day is in that week.

This valentine's excuse was just a joke, Kezzi.
Arnaud is injured and can't play in double, and I'm sure he's more frustrated than you not playing a front of his family and friends.
I don't know if he's planned to spend the folling days in Aix, but I don't think it changes something for you, unfortunatly.

Too bad. Pro athletes get such great care in physical therapy that he should be back to new soon!

Wonder if he'll pull out of the challenger? He is seeded #1 the last time I checked.

I don't know, seems like it would be a perfect place to spend Valentine's Day!!

Maybe it doesn't matter at all, because I'm at the airport now and already 2 flights have been cancelled due to weather conditions in Eindhoven!
If our flight also gets cancelled and we can rebook in the morning we will still go, but if we can fly at night it has no use in my opinion.
But we will have to wait and see, I have 1 hour of internet here, so if I know in this time I'll let you guys now. Otherwise you'll read something tonight.

Please pray for us. There's just some fog here, make it go away that's all I ask

I know he'll be frustrated by his injury, it's not nice for him that he can't play at his home tournament.
