Stockholm, he's on alternate list for Madrid qualies, alternate on Lyon entry list and for Bercy the qualify list is not yet out.


Micka said today in the newspaper that's they want to win Metz, Lyon and Bercy in a row this season.

I hope Arnaud wins today.

EDIT: He won the 1st set 6-4

A summary

He won 1st set but it was tough and strange. He made two times the break leading 4-2 and served for the set at 5-3 but finally won the set on De Voest serve at 5-4. From 4-2 for Arnaud none of them won his serve.

And of course at the beginning of the second set, he lost his third service game in a row . He broke back the following game. After one service game holding by love, he lost again his serve at 2-2 on a DF. He lost it also at 3-4 to loose the set 2-6. In this set he got only 38% of 1st serve with 3 DF.

In the third he began by hold his serve but lost it on the first break ball at 1-1. At 2-3, he was 40-00 up on De Voest serve but missed these 3 break balls to finally won the one after 1st deuce. Then you had already guess he lost his serve at 5-5 (it was very funny in a way lol)to lost 5-7. A duration of 2h35


It was as if he was not on the court in the second and at the beginning of the third. Maybe a lack of competition or of training ? The end of the match was close but De Voest was opportunist and Arnaud febrile. Anyway, loose to De Voest is not very glorious especially with a WC

They should play their double quarter tomorrow or friday, after that it's Stockholm where he probably won't have a such a nice draw. I'm not sure it's very useful to ask WC for Lyon and Bercy and if he doesn't enter the others qualies draw, he's probably soon in holidays for single match

What an impressive result.
Good luck in doubles anyway.

BTW, there is a hilarious picture, I believe it's from the doubles 1st round (source):

To know his mood we have only to ask to ballkids

On FFT website they say politely he played badly " L'Aixois n'a jamais réussi à libérer ses frappes de balles". I don't know if there will be an audio.

The audio is available http://www.fft.fr/open-de-moselle/2008/?id=4109

He sounds good and he's definitly funny . "They were beautiful, happy and it's was nice to see " about Bruno's wedding. It's the sentence of the day on the FFT website.

Quote:
"Ils étaient beaux, ils étaient heureux, et c'était beau à voir !"
Signé Arnaud Clément, dont le frère Bruno (son ancien entraîneur) s'est marié le week-end dernier.
"I'm disappointed even if i doesn't seem to be. I had the ascendancy in 80% of the points but I was bad in finishing."

He acknowledges that he missed a good draw and he said that even if he was motivated but his concentration fluctuated and it was a match of come back. For the end of the season, he knows that draws will be different but think the season is not finished

As usual, he's not worried.

A pic on the blog found by Truc http://latourcamoufle.hautetfort.com....%20de%20voest and we learn that's Arnaud was agressive toward the umpire in the third.

Sur le Court Central de l'Open de Moselle vient de se terminer un match de toute première importance, la rencontre qui a opposée le Français Arnaud Clément au Sud Africain Rik de Voest. Le second l'a remporté sur le premier en trois manches : 4/6, 6/2 et au Tie-Break 7/5. Un match très intéressant, technique, en force et qui a donné entière satisfaction au public (dont de nombreux enfants - c'est le mercredi - qui ont acclamé Arnaud...). A noter, le geste déplacé d'Arnaud Clément qui a été agressif envers l'arbitre dans la troisième manche.

But 7-5 is not a tie-break so maybe everything is wrong.
