Good luck for doubles!
He has really improved for sure, now he is able to play with foreigners regularly and during his press conferences in english he knows more than 3 words and people understand him...I find him better than Richard for instance lol but Richard's accent is too cute

I'm sure he wanted to play some events next year before leaving but many pains and too much poor ranking the qualies of challengers that's not fun

For Mons he may need to play the qualies i really for you he'll make the effort to go even for qualies .

That's the question what he wants to do if he's 200# and his body doesn't allow him great expectations. I'm sure it's not easy for him

Well, in Mons they always seem happy with him, so I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a wildcard. If not too many Belgians need it.
And just in case, I could always go to Marseille for his goodbye tournament. I allowed myself to assume he plans it like that.

Based on the reports I read, Arno played a terrible match, his attitude was poor, his game was very weak, his serve wasn't there and he got dominated.

Arno's bounced in and out of the top 100 a lot these last several years but always found a way to get back in. It's sadly looking less and less likely that will happen this time

I'm sure he'll got a lot of WC's in these French events coming up. What's most important is he's physically and mentally fresh and capable of winning. He really needs at least one good event to build some self-belief, right now he's in a cycle of losses that are devastating him. He needs to see and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel for his results to start to pick up again.

Then Arnaud gave him a gift, double faulting on the 6th but Frank played a loose service game to get back to 3-3. That game was the turning point of the match. Frank had already been screwed over by the umpire the game before, and it happened again at 30-15 to Clement. Clement hit a ball literally two feet out but the umpire gave the point to Arnaud. The next point, Frank ripped a frustration forehand that hit the line. After that, his level rose considerably. He broke Arnaud twice in a row to win the set 6-3, and then held very easily in the 2nd set while breaking Clement with several fantastic passing shots and forehand winners. At 5-3 serving, he went up 40-0 with some good play again, and then... well Frank historical inability to close came back almost. He double faulted twice to get back to 40-30 then missed an easy backhand for deuce. Fortunately for him, after a couple more misses Clement missed badly on a weak second serve, and then Frank closed in out with a great rally. Overall, Frank will be very happy with this performance, needs to improve the return game against Wolmarans though. Clement on the other hand should be ashamed - his first serve was non-existent, his attitude on the court was poor, and he was pushing like a Spanish clay courter.

Don't forget his age . I'm pretty sure is indeed tired mentally and physically . He was at the top in his early 20' play most of his carreer in the top 100 and has never been long time injured so for sure he's burn out mentally not by this year but by the years . He loves tennis but competition began to be too much tough for him. Even when he played well this year vs Berrer or Baggy he lost to them because of that. Then his game is based on his fitness not a shot and his body is just painful

He needs a good week to enjoy tennis on tour and because he deserves it That's why we will use in the next tournaments despite we are

For Mons the list is not out yet so we'll wait but usually the cut is high that's why i wrote on the qualies. For Bercy he should get at least a WC for qualies if he needs. And maybe Arno will post his schedule. About this one Arno entered Istanbul challenger the week after St Remy.

To play qualies for a challenger...ouch it's tough at 33 after his career...I hope he will get the WC for Mons. Fortunately there are a lot of French tournaments or in Europe during last part of the tennis season, it's less difficult to find motivation than playing on the other side of the world, sometimes in bad conditions.

Nothing in L'Equipe mag after his defeat I want to know his mood but they don't write anything about him this year or just some words, a pity.

A bad round for Clement

They talk about DIP job then

"And there is Arnaud, under his accomplices eyes Arnaud Clement 33 YO 154 # a little less lively and broken down of first serve just lost the first set then the second one, two times 63 against the canadian Frank Dancevic a really bad draw for once. There is more than 500 spectators (free entrance) to see him, many french players and Nolwenn Leroy his famous fiancée. No it's not tough to see Arno in qualies answered DIP. he's here because he's crazy about sport and because he still believes. He's not far away but he lost confidence along the months.

When you read about the others frenchies some drew players who gave them the match . Definitely unlucky draw for Arno. According DIP words Arnaud still believes in better days but he's playing totally without confidence. The journalist add that Arno is less lively and it was what i remember from his match vs Cipolla. Of course confidence is crucial but he's also less good because of that injuries . Arno still in love with tennis

another capture easier to read

Maybe he should decide to stay on tour as a doubles player? Many of them are his age or older and still successful.
I also get the idea doubles goes better for him these days.

I'm not sure this is what he wants in his last interview he was not even motivated by doubles in 2012 Olympics He would need to play with a friend to be motivated by doubles all a year.

Thanks for the article soulagen it's interesting (not only for arnaud, but also for the other players)

I'm pretty sure arnaud said after or just before RG he was not motived to play only doubles on the tour, he still wants to focus on singles...
Well, it's his choice...
