OMG Soulage you scared me ! I thought you were going to say Arnaud will be the sparring partner of Azarenka, I read a second time your sentence before saying "ouffff"
Oh please I hope he won't never become the sparring of any girl

Thanks for the link cos I never watch this stupid ceremony, I hate this radio, these artists, this show, Nikos...everything. But I must admit, quelle classe la Nolwenn !! Beautiful look, lovely speech. (ça tranche avec la vulgarité sans nom de Shym )


And Arnaud, la classe aussi, but I'm happy he was not on the red carpet.

You doesn't want to see him as a sparring or working with a girl

Arno is a facebook addict new message tonigh to say cicatrisation goes well and still hope to be ready for Quimper. He adds the most important is to be careful and not take risk to avoid a new injury. So nothing sure about Quimper and hopefully he will wait to be fully ready.

Default Re: News Arnaud

Actually it's not a news but I don't know where to put this article (no article thread here ??)
Christophe Thoreau is a guy who makes a tennis blog on yahoo france. He talks about DC and thinks Arnaud is the best man to become the future captain. I could summarize his last article by: ODE TO ARNAUD !!!

One of the nicest things I ever read about Arnaud. Maybe a bit too much utopist, but many true things.

http://fr.sports.yahoo.com/blogs/jeu...144108408.html

Votez Clément !


Ce n'est ni la pression populaire ni les médias qui choisiront le prochain capitaine de l'équipe de France de Coupe Davis. Les joueurs trancheront en accord avec la FFT. Mais cela ne nous empêche pas pour autant d'en discuter. Alors, ouvrons le débat. Qui pour succéder l'an prochain à Guy Forget ? Sébastien Grosjean, Henri Leconte, Cédric Pioline, Lionel Roux, Amélie Mauresmo (eh oui, pourquoi pas !), d'autres encore... Les candidats ne manquent pas.

En ce qui me concerne, j'ai fait mon choix. Arnaud Clément m'apparait comme le plus apte à prendre les commandes de l'équipe. Pour plusieurs raisons. J'ai pu le constater lors du tournage du documentaire "Sur la Route de Belgrade" (qui sera prochainement proposé sur Tennis Play d'ailleurs), La Clé jouit d'un immense respect de la part des autres joueurs. Un respect basé sur sa longue et riche carrière, résultat d'un énorme travail. Clément n'a pas le coup de raquette d'un Grosjean ou d'un Gasquet, ni le physique d'un Monfils ou d'un Tsonga, mais sa place en finale de l'Open d'Australie, son accession à la dixième place mondiale, ses quatre titres ATP en simple ou son succès en double à Wimbledon valent tous les discours. Car ce n'était pas gagné d'avance pour ce p'tit bonhomme de 173 cm, mais sa volonté, son mental, son oeil et ses jambes de feu lui ont permis d'escalader bien des sommets. Respect, donc, disais-je.

De fait, Mister Arnaud est tennistiquement indiscutable. Sans oublier son implication en équipe de France tout au long de ces années. Impeccable en coulisses comme sur le court. Avez-vous entendu parler d'embrouillaminis avec Clément chez les Bleus comme avec d'autres ? Il y en a peut-être eu, ne soyons pas angéliques, mais Arnaud n'a pas la réputation d'un type emmerdant ou égocentrique, même si le garçon a son caractère et ses convictions. Avec les Bleus, ce compétiteur hors norme a toujours su se mettre au service de l'équipe. Jusqu'à cette demi-finale à Lyon contre l'Argentine puis cette finale de Belgrade en 2010 où, appelé à la rescousse, il a été absolument épatant en double. La Clé en mode Coupe Davis, indiscutable là encore !

Le troisième point est certainement le plus important. S'il devenait capitaine, Clément transposerait sans doute dans le mode de fonctionnement de l'équipe tout ce qui lui a réussi dans sa carrière : à savoir un professionnalisme, une rigueur voire une maniaquerie de tous les instants en dehors du court. Je ne suis pas sûr que l'Aixois supporterait d'assister à des séances d'entrainement où les joueurs ne sont pas impliqués à 100%, ou de constater que le boulot physique demandé n'a pas été effectué correctement, ou encore qu'untel a bâclé ses étirements. Je ne suis pas en train de dire que ça marcherait au pas avec capitaine Clément, mais il est sûr qu'il ne faudrait pas que ses joueurs prennent à la légère ses directives. Bref, avec lui, la maison serait tenue, c'est une certitude. Cela peut faire peur à certains mais c'est aussi un gage pour l'avenir. Je n'évoquerai pas, enfin, son sens du jeu, sa connaissance du circuit ou son expérience, cela va de soi. Tout comme sa bonne image dans les médias, là encore un paramètre à ne pas négliger.

Mais Clément, qui joue toujours, a-t-il d'ores et déjà envie de ce poste ? Sa passion du jeu et de la compétition -encore un atout- est telle qu'il ne semble pas encore, malgré ses 34 ans, décidé à ranger sa raquette. Son épaule qui le tracasse sans cesse, est d'un autre avis... On verra bien. Par ailleurs, après avoir autant bourlingué, l'animal aura pourquoi pas envie de se poser quelques temps, pour étudier calmement quelle orientation il souhaite donner à sa vie d'après. Jamais une période facile pour un joueur... Le départ de Forget, après 13 ans de service, arrive peut-être un peu tôt pour La Clé.

J'aimerais aussi voir Clément à la tête de l'équipe de France afin qu'il ait, enfin, l'occasion de remporter une finale. Car dans ce domaine, il n'a pas été verni. Ecarté en 2001 pour la victoire en Australie, blessé en 2002 avant la finale contre les Russes à Paris, battu en 2010 lors de la finale en Serbie, Clément, même s'il a évidemment participé à la campagne victorieuse en 2001, n'a jamais brandi le Saladier d'Argent. Injuste, évidemment en regard de tout ce qu'il a apporté à cette équipe et à cette épreuve. Assister un jour à un triomphe des Bleus avec ce «Little Big Man» à leur tête, serait un joli retour des choses...

The journalists are quite in favour of Arno. He was nice with them during his career with his fun and interesting match conference so they want him again but Arno is not retired men

Tennis Magazine made a poll few weeks ago and the two favorites by the medias was Nico Escudé and Seb. Now I read that Seb is the fav. Forget says he has an opinion and will give it if players ask him. There is a lot of candidates like Pioline who is doing a bit of campaign lately.

Pioline ?? No way !!!
I have an idea. Because they're still a bit young for the job, I vote for a double capitanat: seb/arnaud

What does "abouto" mean? My dictionary doesn't know.
For the rest I know what they mean and I agree with Marine.

Today the reactions of the three and we can understand that he's interested by the job

He says it's only words of journalists for he moment and will wait the opinions of the palyers to comment but yes he's interested and if the proposition would come it would change many things about his career but for the moment he's player and his shoulder let him free since free months and he's quite happy about his level lately. He says Seb or Scud would be great and if they're chosen he could continue to play few months next year

For sure the most motivated is Escude and Seb the fav according some rumours and for Pioline i don't know about his chances. Anyway I don't think Arno would the first choice of the players and the FFT so he could continu to play next year
