the draw came out this morning, and if i remember correctly (sign of an ultra lazy poster...) arnaud will play rainer schuettler in the first round. it's right near the bottom of the draw.

people are speculating that roger will request a tuesday start... meaning that rafa's (and thus arnaud's) half will start first on monday. so..... he'd better find a way to beat mr. schuettler, cos i won't be there in time on monday.

ps. where's everyone? new year holiday still? happy new year!:angel:

Arnaud was training today [I came in here because I saw this thread was the most recently updated!] with Bruno and some french guy...actually I dunno who he was. He had the sunscreen all over the tattoos, working on the tan. He mustn't have been doing too great because by the end his racquet was thrown at the fence behind him! Didn't get any photos as I was besotted with Thomas Johansson and Magnus Norman. :lol::wavey:

'baghdatis' on the aust open forum claims that he's got that racquet. i've made him an offer :lol:

gee his foul mood has extended from sydney to melbourne! lol

:wavey: catch up later if i run into you next week!

Je suis la!

Yup, Schuettler. Their H2H is 1-3, Rainer.

If I don't expect him to win, I won't be disappointed :rolleyes:.
schuettler hasn't done much lately, has he? guess they are well matched :tape:

Show court 3, I'm hoping the Dutch channel will show something of that match :) They always show the smaller courts if I don't want to see them, so hopefully they'll also show it with a match I do want to see :p

Alle Arnaud! :bounce:

And when was the last time Arnaud was doing well in Australia, in 2001? :eek:

Yes, it's indeed quite surprising to see this encounter placed at show court 3! Could be a good chance to get a coverage, but since it's one of the opening matches I guess they will rather start it from the main courts.
Good luck to Arnaud and I suppose he'll be around even in case of a loss because it's unlikely he'll skip doubles there.

Great time at the Open to everyone who is going :wavey:

Hi Esther and Via! :wavey:
I'm lucky enough to have access to a livestream so I'm watching it. Seems like he has a lot of supporters there.
Orange shirt and new sunglasses.

When are you guys going to Melbourne?

So, now it's a white shirt and blue bandana. He keeps putting sunscreen on is face at each changeover... then has to clean his sunglasses each time--after time is called. Oh, and of course he's complaining about movement in the stands and line calls. No ball kid abuse. Yet.

I have to say that the duck or goose, some type of bird which I hear in the background, would really distract me if I were playing.

ha ha ha they just showed some girls with fake owl tattoos!

Well, this doesn't look good (nor for Tommy Robredo!), so I hope you can see him again practising!
