Pity and apparently Nico didn't find an other partner. But I really think the old Arnaud is tired . All along the week he said it in the audio and Micka worked doubly to compensate. He needs a lot of time to recover of injuries now.

Nothing important in the audio almost the same than in the ATP report.

Easy win 6-2 / 6-1

First set : an easy start with two love games and after a tough service game with 2 BP saved followed by an other break he was 5-1 on serve. Rehnquist earned one break back but Arnaud concluded the set on the following game.

Second set : Exactly the same scenario Arnaud breaks to lead 3-0; 4-1 and 5-1 but there concluded on his serve.

Well, the good news is that he can always beat a weak opponent Nieminen tomorrow

Not really. Mahut was more like "Ok, I didn't want to play so much anyway" as he also was not too fresh after travelling a lot and playing many matches lately.

Nah I wish I could look like him when I'm tired I saw those ageing bones in action on Monday - when this poor exhausted guy just arrived to the club after Metz final. He was rushing around like a meteor, never steady, always bouncing here and there. He needed to manage some issues at the info desk, it took him about 10 minutes, and every single second he was into something: turning to the left and to the right to chat to someone or shake hands, slapping somebody on the back, standing on tiptoe to see what's going on at the desk as he was the shortest guy over there etc.

Yesterday:



(Grand merci to Olivier Soulès for the help )

He's an hyperactive guy

Thank's for this nice pic

He lost 4-6/7-6(5)/2-6 after 2:47h on court

Nieminen is not Renhquist so of course it was more tough especially with a not very efficent serve and wasted break points

1st set : no BP occasion for Arnaud and the traditionnal shock at 4-4 (broken by love).

2set : Arnaud breaks at 2-1 and leads 4-1 and 5-2. He misses a set point on Nieminem serve and the following game Jarkko debreaks on his first break point of the set. 5-5. Arnaud misses again 2 set points on Jarkko serve but wins finally the tie break

I stopped to follow after the second set but with stats we can see that Arnaud missed also all his BP opportunities in third

It was winable for sure

As all along this season He no more wins close match. All the struggles have the same conclusion

I think he had saved his direct entry in Australian Open but he can maybe be out of the Top 100 at the end of season.

For Madrid he's 6# on alternate Qualification list for the moment so not sure to play. Does he will prefer to prepare Lyon where he's not sure to enter either ?

Yeah, so it's mostly merci to the Lacoste's model for stopping his eternal run and giving me a few minutes of his time

I was and I had, thanks I left my paradise on Tuesday afternoon.

Well, I just go to Stockholm for a few days every October, it has nothing to do with tennis - but since I anyway had some things to do near the tennis club I thought to come in and then I had an unreal luck to meet Arnaud.
As for Moscow, I had a lot of good luck regarding its players, too, but that's another story lol

That's a pity but Nieminen was a too tough opponent for the second round, I believe this guy has pretty good chances to win the whole tournament.

As for the serve and wasted break points, I believe it's also the matter of the court. I don't know what's wrong with its surface, but almost everyone maybe except the local players (and I think Nieminen is also a sort of a local player) had a lot of problems with their serve. Then there is also the light problem. It's really dark on court, for those matches played before 5 PM it's more or less fine because there is additional light coming from windows, but the evening matches are being played in pretty bad light conditions. So no wonder Arnaud had to wear his glasses.

As for the rest, he seemed to be just fine and happy with everything. He believes he's in a good form (), the injury doesn't bother him at all and so everything is almost perfect regarding his health. Coach absence also doesn't seem to bother him any much, he's going to care about it during the off-season or maybe in the beginning of the next year.
