Smile Hamburg 07

well, we never had a thread for roma, so i'm starting this thread in hopes that arnaud's stay in hamburg will be longer than it has been in the last few tourneys. and we'll have some postive things to discuss.

today:
A Clement (FRA) d R Stepanek (CZE) 63 67(4) 63

next is blake.

and then there is doubles with julien.

Not a bad start. Blake will be a good chance to check his power before RG. Allez!
Also hope he'll do it well in doubles and continue the tendency of improving his ranking every week.

I think we can say it's a good start ! Ok Stepanek has lost his tennis, but Arnaud has not found again one's either so nevermind, a win is a win.

That's all we can expect of him, so it's not so naive of me I guess.

no one is denying that

i mentioned people might be naive, because obviously arnaud is not playing the best tennis of his life. what's worse, his commitment to his career appears to be wavering. personally, my expectation is low. but i can't believe stepanek has sunk so low himself!

In l’Équipe today:
Dernier entrant du tableau, opposé au finaliste de la saison passée, le Provençal était hier habité d’une humeur si badine que le placide Radek Stepanek paraissait encore plus ombrageux que les sombres nuages voltigeant dans un ciel tourmenté. Le pied levé en canard après un point gagnant, la mimique de joyeux garnement à tous les jeux, le Français menait la vie dure à l’austère Tchèque en déclin. Pris d’une subite quinte de toux, Arnaud s’attira cette remarque de Bruno, son frère et coach. « Bois de l’eau pour la faire passer. » « J’ai pas soif », rétorqua le lutin qui avait réponse à tout, et surtout aux problèmes posés par l’adversaire.
Pour expliquer une telle bonne humeur, il fallait revenir à Genève, vendredi dernier, quand Clément, assuré de ne pas avoir le classement requis pour participer au tournoi de Hambourg, partageait une partie de golf avec Guy Forget, Raphaël Jacquelin et l’épouse de cedernier. Apprenant que les divers désistements lui ouvraient la voie, le Français se tâta tellement avant de saisir l’opportunité qu’il s’attira les remarques de madame Jacquelin, gentiment courroucée : « Mais vas-y, c’est un Masters Series, tout de même ! » Face à une telle force de persuasion, Clément obtempéra. Se rendit tout guilleret en Allemagne. Et, après sa joute animée en trois sets, envoya unSMS de remerciements à celle qui l’avait tant motivé…


It says Arnaud was in an excellent mood yesterday, he was joking with Bruno during his match and all smile, etc.
The reason: last Friday, he was playing golf in Geneva with Forget, Jacquelin and Jacquelin’s wife. He didn’t want to play Hamburg at the time, as we know, but somebody told him he had a chance to enter the main draw because of the many withdrawals. Since he was still hesitating, Jacquelin’s wife got a little bit angry and told him: „But it’s a Masters Series, you have to play!“ He obeyed and went to Germany very lighthearted. After his win, he sent a SMS to Jacquelin’s wife to say thank you…

A bit worrying imo he needs Jacquelin’s wife to tell him he should play an AMS event, but at least we know he’s feeling .

thanks for this info and the translation..quite interesting!

and one would think they'd (he and bruno) know how close he was to getting off the alternate list themselves ??

Thanks Truc, I love this article, the journalist seemt to be in a good mood too when he wrote the article, that's funny.


ps: Raphael Jacquelin is a professional golfer.
