There are also a stream on Betfair (I couldn't access it as it's not available in my country, but I'm pretty sure it was working, just the quality is doubtful) and here: http://www.atdhe.net/live-tv-2024.html (this one was working fine for me, at the moment it's not available because there are no matches).

Though I'm not sure that it'll be a match worthy of watching

Thanks for all the links. Pour b365 j'ai rien fait d'autre que m'inscrire et cliquer sur la petite camera au dessous du tableau de score donc je ne sais pas . If the match is too horrible to watch it's easy to stop the streaming lol

Poor Arnaud, Abu Dhabi airline had lost his suitcases . He has been four days without his luggages. He has buy clothes in Doha. Otherwise he says that his last win against a top 10 was in Queen's in 07' and he feels better physically;

It confirms that Arnaud will play Sydney's qualies in the end of the week unless he beats Roddick and will have to stay longer in Doha.

It's just absolutely ridiculous, usually I'm able to get pictures even from some small Challengers in a remote corner which don't have a website - and this match was on a cente court of quite a big ATP event

Anyway there is one photo of Arnaud from his singles match. I guess he always has an extra bandana and an extra pair of glasses in his pocket, even despite the absence of the luggage lol

Thanks, as always, to everyone for reports, pictures and keen eyes on details like missing luggage!

Good luck to Arnaud v Roddick. He's got nothing to lose by going all out tonight...

edit: and thanks for the link to the livestream!

Lost 3-6/5-7

I missed a lot of first set because i had other things to do but he can have some regrets especially after his early break when he was *2-1 40-00 on his serve

The physio came at the beginning of second set because Arnaud got some problems of breathe it seems. Some very long rallies between the guys, some nice and brilliant things from Arnaud but also stupids UE or bad choices. And this Roddick when he is 30-00 down on his serve he serves two aces in a row . Roddick won easily his serves in second set while Arnaud had to work hard to hold to finally lost it at 5-5. I found that Andy doing well on returns. Arnaud had 3 breaks points to come back but missed them and lost the match.

I found Arnaud more consistant in his strokes but his serve was not enough safe today and it's a pity to see him play a brilliant shot and just after a stupid UE . He was quite tired also at the end. Well i enjoy to see him play nice shots he was really a fighter on court. He needs to improve his serve, avoid the stupid errors but he has still nice shot in his racket. This second set was interesting to watch for me and it was a long time i don't see a stream with Arnaud since Lyon but nothing compare it was much better today

Bruno & Nico Devilder was there.

Thanks for the caps!!!
And for the report too, I only watched 4 first games, then thought "Ah well, it's Arnaud, always the same" and switched to the other things I had to do

I don't know for first set i just put an eye on streaming sometimes but second set was entertaining It was a long time i don't see such winners from Arnaud especially with his forehand but at the same times these stupid errors I hope he will continue like that and not be frustrated by the errors and loss. Now he can fly with Nico & Bruno to Sydney and try to reconver from jet lag.

Tennistalk makes also a summary http://www.tennistalk.com/en/match_r...Arnaud_Clement

are you in doha?

i know, we can't rely on mainstream media to inform us anymore... maybe some photos will pop up on someone's blog in time... if you're patient.

yes! that was on my mind when i found out he's lost his luggage. where in doha could he find all the bandanas and glasses? i was imagining some arabic head gear

Nice pic. Today in l'equipe somes lines




He says that he missed lucidity on some point but he's fine because he played better than during 90% of last season. He goes in Sydney to play qualies.

Thanks everyone for the pics and reports!
My best friend is going to Melbourne, so I ordered her to take lots of Arno and Bruno pics

And they always advise to bring important stuff in your cabin luggage, so I guess that's where he packs the glasses and bandana's
