Yes, it's possible.
Even Pete Sampras was no more sponsored (by Nike) at the end of his career.

I'm waiting the score of Arnaud's match because it suppose only lasted 30 minutes. No livescore I hope he's not injured

edit Arnaud is cheering Marco against Berdych atm. No idea what happened for him today.

Arnaud won by retirement. No score for the moment but it was very short.

Clement moves past 2nd rd when Sela retires with injury. Soderling up 7-6, 4-0 on Bolelli. http://twitter.com/bmwmedia

He takes Berdych in quarter. First real tennis match for Arno in Sunrise
In doubles, they lost 11-13 in the super tie-break The double ranking of Arno will be really poor and more after Miami that he can't enter.I don't know what he will do next weeks in doubles since he can't enter the 1000 and for the 500 and maybe 250 he needs a partner with a decent rank.

It confirmes here http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showt...=244564&page=3 that Arno plays now with a the KBlade 98 from Wilson. It the case since Rotterdam but funny that in some tournaments like marseille he had his Head bag with his wilson rackets.
He did have the new head bag with him in Rotterdam, but I didn't pay attention to the rackets he was using.

Close

Lost first set 6-7 (3) after again a slow start it was 0-3 after 8 minutes . Arno come back from 1-4 to 4-4, saved 2 set points at 4-5 but made a DF at 3-3 in the tie-break which costed him the set.
He was broken on first game of second set on the fourth BP. After the SC has been frozen but according stats he didn't have to save more BP. So again these slow set starts and he really need to improve his first serve %. But he's not ridiculous just need to win a big match against a to player this year. Go in Miami and do an upset now



Now Arno will have some points to defend in tournaments lol He shoud be #58 next week with 40 points to defend in Miami.

So close indeed, what a pity. Berdych must have been really happy to knock out 3 Frenchies in a row

A video for those who wanted it without a towel:

The qualifiers have been placed and Arnaud gets Robert Kendrick. Well, big serve often quite good on his soil. If Arno lose he would have spend very short time in US this year

They play tomorrow around noon local time.

Kendrick has a good serve, but I prefer a qualifier for a first round.
But anyway, we know all matches aren't easy, he proved it in Marseille by losing against an unknown player.

Zverev had some references on hard court indoors but I agree Arno should have win in marseille.

Kendrick is in the rythm with qualies, lives in florida and did well last week in IW. Arno has to play solid and serve very well to put pressure on Kendrick's serve.

First set for Kendrick 6-3 and Arno doesn't exist on kendrick's serve I know it was tricky, when those big servers feel good it tought for a player like arno.

The tie-break is coming and i don't think he can win a tie-break against that guy.

Edit : Arno missed a set point on Kendrick's serve at 6-5 now the tie-break begins
