This kind of songs really suits her and she has a great energy, a pleasure to see and hear for sure...

I know you love Bruno , he was not far from me, it was the first time I saw him and I found him really handsome (with very beautiful golden blonde hair lol) and tanned ! Whaou . His wife was wearing a "marinière" the famous tee-shirt from Britanny

It was really fun to see the same people who are always at Arno's matches at the Open 13 and even an Arno's friend from the country club of Aix en Provence.

I'm really sad for him, his level is better than his ranking and he has absolutly no luck with the draws at the moment. I hope this bad patch will soon end with a good result, if the contrary happens I guess it will be more and more difficult for him to find motivation...
I'm jealous, I also want to spend my holiday in the south of France. I always want to be in the south of France Maybe one day.
Glad to hear the show is great, I really can't wait, but November still takes so long.

Hihi, it was quite obvious during the time he was Arnaud's coach. But he was just so nice every time we asked him something. Too bad I didn't see him after Arnaud's match in Marseille, would have been nice to say hi to him. You must have had very good seats to be so close to him and the family.

The draw gods had mercy for Gilles at some point, soon it will be Arnaud's turn.
Everything will come together for him at one point this year.

It was a kind of theatre, outside, a very nice place , you can see it there http://www.mairie-gemenos.fr/Loisirs...ure/Historique

I had good seats, maybe 2 or 3 rows behind the family but they had chairs unlike us . It was unnumbered seats, so you had to arrive pretty early before the show if you want the better seats

Désolée pour le HS

Was he in Halle yesterday ?

He already plays today against Sijsling (impossible to see the draw for the moment on the ATP website but he's apparently in the part with Mahut & Schuettler), I think there will be a videostream...

Arno lost his match against Sijsling 2/6 - 6/1 - 6/7 (8/10)


I saw the match on livestream...It was really awful at the beginning by both players, they were unable to keep their serve with a lot of unforced errors and double faults. Arno with just an average level should have won this 1st set easily but he was playing poorly...

2nd set was better by Arno with good shots and Sijsling always poor in the game.

The 3rd set was good, the 2 players hold their serve easily excepting the last one before the tie-break when Arno had to save a match point.

The tie-break was tensed and inconsistent with unforced errors but also good shots, double fault and ace...He lost it with an easy volley into the net. In this set they've the same level and again the looser is Arno but he could have won it in 2 sets so...

Do you know where he has the attention to play now ?

Arno's level was so dire for most of the match

Well, this is no way to go into the USO qualifying being 3 weeks away but we didn't expect him to make R3 last year so hopefully we see a dramatic turn in form like that this year

feel some sadness for him. He's out of the deal because of either a bad level a low confidence or a bad luck depending how you see the things. I assume that this long period of work since RG until Segovia for such poor results really affects him . I'm not convinced he enjoys the summer sun what a stupid title actually

Some summer holidays would be good to see how life is without tennis and for us how life is without the french veteran on ATP tour as we can't say we are on the ideal way for an extra season unless he wants to be the next George Bastl or something like that or a player more focused on doubles. It would be cool to know a bit of his actual spirit . I hope he can enjoy the indoor season with some tournaments near home. You can play qualies more easily and see some friends .

and EL HOLANDÉS SIJSLING APEA DE DIECISEISAVOS A UNO DE LOS CABEZA DE SERIE ARNAUD CLÉMENT



El segundo clasificado para octavos de final ha sido el jugador de Amsterdam (177º del mundo), Igor Sijsling.

El holandés de 23 años se llevó con comodidad el primer set por 6/2; mientras que el veterano francés, Arnaud Clément (octavo cabeza de serie del torneo) hizo lo propio en la segunda manga por 6/1.

De manera que el partido empezó de verdad en el tercer parcial que, como estaba casi anunciado, desembocó en el tie-break, aunque manejó serias opciones de llevárselo Sijsling.

En el desempate final, Clément se puso 4-2, pero fue cambiar de lado y volvieron todas las opciones a la raqueta del holandés que, sin embargo desaprovechó tres pelotas de partido, permitiendo que el francés dispusiera de otras dos. Hasta que remató Sijsling, tras error de Clément con un 10-8 definitivo.

Después de las más de 2 horas de batalla, los jugadores se expresaban así:

Sijsling: “En el primer set me ha costado acostumbrarme a la pista, pero lo he podido sacar adelante. Nos hemos roto mutuamente el servicio bastantes veces durantes los dos primeros sets; pero en el tercero nos hemos respetado el saque hasta llegar al tie-break y tras 4 bolas de partido he conseguido sacarlo adelante, que era lo importante”

Clément: “Me he sentido bien tanto en pista como por mi juego, pero finalmente no ha podido ser”.
He was 4-2 up in the tie-break according this and what did he say ? He was feeling good i don't understand the end of the sentence poor spanish for me

where's this tournament? why a spanish report? lol

sounds like he's a bit philosophical, if he said 'in the end it couldn't be' according to translation

before we get used to atp without arno, we have to get used to arno without a win, both are hard.

It seems He could have won half of the match he lost past weeks but he can't this also sounds like a metaphor. Physically he feels the years then it's in the head and it gives a tons of loss

I'm wondering about the coach situation In the pics i found that Julien Jean Pierre was again there at least someone looking like him maybe for Nico But since Wimbledon i found no traces of Boris or Olivier near Arno

No, he wasn't. I already expected that, but still... Good thing is that I could work and earn money to visit more tournaments this year.

There is no sun to enjoy anyway. I guess it will come in September when I am back at school.

I hope he decides to stay one the tour a bit longer as a doubles player if he decides to quit singles. And otherwise as a coach, for Mannarino or Paire. My two favorite youngsters.

Hopefully Mons, I already have my tickets. If anyone wants to go too, the tickets are free for a limited time.

I don't really know Olivier, have never seen him, but I like Boris. He should stay with Arnaud.

So after interclubs Arno should be back on tour For USO qualies i don't know if he still plans to go but i'm afraid he won't be seed if he goes It sounds a tough task and i prefer not talk about his ranking .

Arno plan to play the Saint Remy Challenger during second week of the GS : http://www.laprovence.com/actu/regio...e-des-alpilles He's on the poster http://issuu.com/TennisStRemy/docs/affiche_ta2011

Oooh, I want one of those posters.

Well, he can still go far if he's unseeded. 3 out of top 4 didn't make it far last week either, so ranking isn't always important.

I still think there is a small chance of a WC. He played great in USOpen last year, almost upsetting FIsh in the 3rd round. And unfortunately this could be his last USOpen, so it's again quite logical to give it to him for everything he did in his career.

It's Bennet who got the WC. Arno was not really deserving it and Arno still don't say he will quit at the end of year even it's possible

Last news http://www.facebook.com/arnaudclemen...23816977666336 confirm he'll play us qualies that he'll fly tomorrow to NY he says that he has no physical problems and will play doubles with Dlouhy. Well nothing special Sylvain don't report long messages

Allez Arnaud for qualies!

I don't mind the short messages. When I had a website for a player, I also posted short messages. Sometimes there's only so much you can make from just a draw and results. Even though the player in question always promised to give me email updates, I'm still waiting for them.
