arnaud is lucky to get in directly due to the incredible amount of pull-outs (injuries etc) on the entry list. then again, the cut-off is incredibly high

so i hope he makes the most of his chance. what's happened to seb btw

arnaud will play Florent Serra. they've only played once which was last year at the pilot pen in new haven and arnaud won.

if he wins, then he plays Robredo!

Ahhh Flo! Well, in general Flo is a great clay court player but he's going through not his best time now so I suppose Arnaud is a favorite of this encounter.

Getting a direct entrance and a WC for the first round is already a good fortune, then considering all the curcumstances of a high cut-off and the level of the tournament Arnaud's part of the draw despite Robredo is quite fine too. Alors bon courage, Arnaud!

Also their doubles combination with Micka is coming back and then play Bhupathi/Stepanek in the first round.

Pauvre Seb, but I thought the DC was a week ago..

Actually I have no idea of what's happened to Seb but I've almost lost any hope to see that great old Seb again Someone should come up, kick his ass, push him out to the practice court and convince him that tennis is a fun, he loves it and he is a great player, maybe then... Forget's try was not too bad, but it was enough for a single match only.

it's true... i don't think arnaud should be unhappy at all with the draw. robredo is a fine player, and a winner in hamburg last year, but still... not the scariest. i don't think arnaud should look like at the moment

i really am surprised if his effort at DC has cost him monte carlo but then maybe his fitness does not allow him to play two five-setters in two days. haven't i told you about aching bones? you still have not comprehended? maybe he'll ache for two more weeks

In l’Équipe today :
Quote:
Clément au rebond
APRÈS LA DÉCEPTION de sa non-sélection en Coupe Davis, Arnaud Clément a enregistré hier un succès convaincant contre Florent Serra (6-4, 7-6). « Dans le tie-break, à 0-4, j’ai réussi à revenir en étant plus entreprenant, analysait-il après ce jeu décisif finalement remporté, 7-5. D’une façon générale, j’estime avoir produit un niveau de jeu intéressant pour un premier match de l’année sur terre. Mais c’est ce que j’espérais après une excellente semaine de travail avec mon frère. »
Le meilleur moyen d’oublier la frustration de Moscou n’était-il pas de remettre le nez dans le guidon ? « Le jour où Guy (Forget) m’a annoncé que je ne jouerai pas (la Coupe Davis), j’étais complètement défait. Mais j’aurais dû mieux me préparer à cette éventualité. Une fois la déception passée, j’ai endossé à fond le rôle du supporter. Je crois que j’ai dû louper deux points en tout et pour tout. Je n’avais plus de corde vocale à la fin. »
Sur un autre sujet, il entend bien faire entendre sa voix : « J’ai déjà signé à Miami la pétition des joueurs qui s’insurgeaient sur le fait qu’on n’a pas été consultés sur les réformes auxquelles réfléchit l’ATP. À propos du possible déclassement de Monte-Carlo, ça me paraît hallucinant. L’ATP a plutôt intérêt à faire machine arrière… »
He’s happy about his level of play for his first match on clay. He was expecting it too because he had an excellent week of training with Bruno.
When Forget told him in Moscow he wouldn’t play the tie, he was consternated first. He says he should have prepared better for this possibility. Once he had recovered from the shock, he started supporting the team like crazy (and completely lost his voice on Sunday).
And he’s very upset about the ATP reforms. He signed in Miami the petition because the players haven’t been consulted for all those changes they are planning to do. The decision about MC is incredible in his opinion. The ATP better changes its mind…

(Seb had pulled out of Monte Carlo before he knew he would play in Moscow, btw. I think his decision not to play has nothing to do with his matches there.)

Interesting interview, thanks. It must have been a shock! Glad he's recovered and put it all behind him.

Now on to Robredo and back together with mika. btw, Robredo is blogging from monte carlo on the atp website.

now that i'm finally reconciled with monte carlo time, i'm pleased to announce that the doubles pair will debut in a featured match on tuesday on centre court, against the revered pair of bhupathi and stepanek.

ok then show us you two are indeed the premier frenchies in doubles

Yes, I indeed felt myself like an idiot when I found out Sunday was the first playing day (and I checked the draws only at the Sunday’s evening lol). But well, Arnaud is my the only great interest of MC draw and I just thought some nice people will post all the important info in here so I may relax. Btw in my turn, I didn’t think that you looked like an idiot. I supposed either you was just too kind to reply to my stupid post, or you were just joking, or I misundrestood something.

Back to the main topic: allez les gars!!!

It's nice that Arnaud won his first match. I hope he can do the same against Tommy.
