A close loss 12-14 in the super tie-break i just read that they had big lead in the Match tie-break with 9-6 and 5 MP missed. The close losses are never great for confidence even in doubles well he can go to Washington now to try to find the win.
GroundPass is covering the LA tournament and the other the guy said Arnaud was one of his favorite player and today we have a little interview. When the guy starts by saying him he's a superhero of tennis you can in the eyes of Arno that he found that guy crazy A big big fan this Marcus http://groundspass.net/

Haven't been online a lot lately, just on my phone, so I completely missed the thread. Already so much news in here!

Me and my sister are fans from 2001 too
And (as usual, lol) I don't understand, cause most of the time I agree with him. I'm as easily annoyed by people, especially when frustrated. I think it's better to behave badly on court and nice off court than the other way around.

As we sayed Arno can be a diva on courts I found this on a forum http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum...ad.php?t=17596 , it's from a volunteer in LA. He can be a nice guy even after a loss



And then saturday
Great story. He's the cutest.

Default Re: On The US Open 2010 Road

I read that he was 3-0 up in the first set so it means that then he lost 12 games to win 1 It was a tough opponent but i didn't expect a big loss like that. His stats on serve are amazing 38% of first serve with 23% during second set Is his elbow painful or does he serve more crappy each day I don't know if he will stay in the US all the month cos it must be long for him. If he lost early in Toronto maybe he could change his schedule.

A pic on that twitter http://tweetphoto.com/36657927 just before the match he was polite Via

Arnaud Clement! Nearly walked right into him, but nice guy said 'Excuse Me' - w/ french accent of course

Is it me or did Lacoste give him a shirt that's a size too large?

Big loss i'm afraid for him, he was playing like that with this low percentage of first serve when he was hurt last summer - maybe the elbow protection is not as efficient as it was. I hope I'm wrong I don't want him join Seb' too quickly

His smile is so cute on this pic . I agree this shirt is really too large ! I saw that also on a pic with Erlich in L.A (on flickr).

Anyway this shirt is awful This summer collection is not great For his elbow i don't know but it could explain his problems we'll see but he's never very talkative about his injuries. Talking about the elbow protection Bennet was training with the same we can see it on one of the pic of the twitter i posted. Arno invented a new tennis accessory

Default Re: On The US Open 2010 Road

I love Court 2 as it only has about four rows of bleachers and no fence between the crowd and the court, so I was happy to see that Arnaud would play on that court. I went over there after watching Julien lose. In walked Tipsarevic all dressed in black, with a tennis bag on wheels! I guessed that most people were there to see him and not Arnaud. My first impression of Arnaud was that he was really the most tanned I'd ever seen him. The first set started out fine, with Janko yelling several times throughout about his own play or about his disappointment over a line call. Arnaud had a similar outburst. I didn't think that the level of play was so great, but there were several nice winners by both players. (I'm sorry I can't confirm that he was up 3-0 in the first set, as the scoreboard wasn't working at the beginning and I was answering emails on my phone and finding out that Gasquet had retired...).

Arnaud totally took his sweet time at the change-over by s-l-o-w-l-y changing his socks, shirt and bandana. The last point of the first game in the second set is what I assume made him lose his focus. He complained about the call and stared at the umpire for a long, long time. I knew right then that it was the beginning of the end. He totally let it get under his skin and that was that! As the match went on there were a few good winners, but I found my mind wandering as it wasn't very interesting. I can't believe I'm saying that, but the rest of the match was really rather boring, so I plotted the remaining matches I would see that evening, namely--Llodra and Simon.

Arnaud was sshhh-ing the people in the stands and honestly, I can't really blame him. Some people have no clue (or am I a tennis snob?). Roddick played last night and he brings out the "lightweight" tennis fans who really have no idea about tennis-watching etiquette. However, I have seen Arnaud complain about a plane flying over so he really seems to lose his focus sometimes!

He left in a rush and maybe that's the last time I'll see him?

It was off to Micka whose service motion was so much like mine :!! He's apparently injured. Simon was a real treat to watch so the night was not all bad for me!

One more thing I forgot: his treatment of the ball kids was not too bad, but there was one time (when I was paying attention) that he wouldn't give the kid the towel back until he put the balls on his racquet. Seems pointless.
