Too bad for Arnaud. I was too tired to even think about staying up at 2am to follow the scores. Hopefully he does better in doubles. I assume he plays doubles there.

Ok, I had to check whether they already have the doubles draw, and there it was.

Nice to see Arnaud teaming up with Mika again.

Dramatic is right. If he would keep his head in the game I think he would be more successful. Maybe I should coach him lol. And speaking of that, if Bruno wasn't his brother, I think he'd have been fired by now...sorry, c'est vrai!

Thanks to Higherlaw and Via/Esther for the reports and match details. Normally I find Arnaud's crazy matches like this one quite funny and they do not annoy me so much. But that's definitely not something I'd like to stay up for in the middle of the night, so I guess it's more of a good luck I haven't seen it. Though I've seen Micka's match and it was something of the same style.

Let's hope they will go through the first round at least in doubles. Though it won't be a cakewalk for our Frenchies, those twins they've been draw against rule the Challengers tour, and they already beat Llodra/Mahut last year...
Allez les gars

A good question.
His and Micka's progress in doubles this week will mean a lot. And good for him Forget is still the captain.

Orange shirt and new sunglasses.
Where did you find that livestream?
I was up untill 3 am looking at the scoreboard while searching for a livestream

But hey, there's a good thing about Rainer's win, for the rest of the tournament I won't lose any sleep

Maybe Bruno also gets afraid of his brother when he acts that way?
However, helping Bruno coach Arno is a good idea

Livestream is ESPN360; only good in the US, sorry.

Even tried such PPlive things, but with al chinese or japanes language, I couldn't find matches. And other things were those betting sites where you have to register

hey everyone!!! (special hello to marine now that im back i realise how much i miss posting here)

sorry for the late update. The past two days, i was at the tennis from 11am-11pm because i was working at the tennis (food) until the last match. ANYWAYS. Let me get my thoughts into order

1) That is awesome that there is live streaming of matches in the US.... too bad that its not international.

2) No i was not the girl with fake owls LOLLL...

3) Arnaud played like crap. Schuettler wasnt anything special... he didnt have to be. Arnaud was just making error after error after error. Yelled at the umpire maybe 4 or 5 times. Seemed like he was fighting himself more than anything or anyone really.

4) The funniest thing about the match was the way Arnaud acted about how the ballkids gave him his towel. The ball kid gave him the towel the normal way- scrunched up. Arnaud mumbled something and stretched the towel horizontally and held it right in the middle before using it. He showed this to the ballkid, but i dont think he understood what Arnaud was demanding.

So the next time Arnaud got the towel, the ballkid just gave it to him normally again and Arnaud got all angry and showed him again. It was hilarious, but so rude.

5) Sorry, no photos. I really am sorry, if i knew people would be waiting for them here i would have taken some!! Ive just taken 100 photos of Arnaud in the past few years, i didnt bother... He still looks the same :P

6) The match took up the whole day basically. Didnt get to do much afterwards, just walked around and saw JCF and federer practising.

7) Arnaud is playing doubles tomorrow right? Hopefully its not the same time as Seb's singles match
