yes, i suppose it's finally time to start a thread for it.

i've got good news and bad news!

... bad news is, the doubles highlight that i mentioned on the other thread, had been wiped out by my own stupidity.... it is now overwritten by another recording :sad: but that is not the end of the world, since nouf has offered you his match videos, right? ;)

... the good news is, arnaud was interviewed today on tv by a presenter, and i saw it. among the few things that he talked about,
  1. he's tired and jet-lagged (giving excuse for not playing well in the first singles match?)
  2. he's reminded about turning the big 3-0 (no one is letting him forget it) but he insists he likes playing and being out on court, and he hopes he's still playing at 35
  3. he likes the new surface just as much as other hard courts
there's also some footage of last night's nye ball... a number of players were asked what 3 things they'd bring with them to a desert island (or something along those lines...) guess what arnaud wanted to bring... a wife :eek::haha::haha: is he getting desperate? hmmmm

ps. he looked very formal for the ball with a big black bow tie (not sure if he had a tuxedo on but that's possible) all he's lacking was a ring to propose to some lucky lady :haha:

Wow, seems you weren't wasting your time during New Year's night :worship: Is your TV always on to catch Arnaud or you're having such a good luck? lol :yeah:
A pity Arnaud's post-doubles interview disappeared! It's not so often he is getting interviewed in English. But match videos is a perfect consolation indeed :)

It reminds me of that Santoro video after Bercy, "55 and still playing" lol

Euh??.. :eek: I'm afraid to ask what were the other things…

There is a picture on General: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=6374347&postcount=1 Black buttons hmm.. Well, comparing to others it was not too bad.

a long story... basically i've had it worked out that the special interviews and previous evening highlights are only shown during 'intermissions', so i set the recording for an hour or two using my best guess, and went out.... but yeah, i'm still watching more tv than usual this week lol

well now, today's interview was even better, and also in english!

It reminds me of that Santoro video after Bercy, "55 and still playing" lol
fabrice is a joker.... arnaud isn't joking cos it sounds more realistic!

Euh??.. :eek: I'm afraid to ask what were the other things…
there weren't other things for arnaud... he tried to think but came up with nothing else, so he said, that's it. (so all he could think of was getting a wife :eek: )

Thanks for everybody's hard work with pictures and updates! :worship:

Arnaud is wearing a tux and he's much more classic (that could be construed as veteran I suppose) than Novak...Jelena looks good, but Tatiana's stockings??

So, he's looking for a wife? Anyone out there available??:lol:

Looking forward to the match which will be shown live!

Thank you jirbkk for the pic below.

Great job! :)

That's good then that he was serious, so now there is a kind of an official reply to all the talks about his soon retirement :p

there weren't other things for arnaud... he tried to think but came up with nothing else, so he said, that's it. (so all he could think of was getting a wife :eek: )
Oh poor thing... Via, please, take care about him next week(s)!

Arnaud is wearing a tux and he's much more classic (that could be construed as veteran I suppose) than Novak...Jelena looks good, but Tatiana's stockings??
I wish there was a picture of Arnaud and Tatiana together :lol:

Arnaud looks really yummy today. :lick: That lady was just a spectator, no one special (I think! :scared:) ;)

He's playing ok, but not close to his best.

it wasn't me, or emily, i can tell you this much!

arnaud has no lack of choices lol the poor fellow just has to make up his mind.
lol. She put a lot of effort into making that sign!

:mad:Silly me! What did I do? Stay up until 1:30am to watch that awful doubles match :mad: They should have won, especially with Jelena injured. It seemed to me that Arnaud and Tatiana didn't take it too seriously. The commentators kept remarking that Arnaud wasn't being "mean enough" to Jelena. He was giving her easy serves and hitting to Novak instead of her. Meanwhile, Novak was sending Tatiana hard serves. It didn't help that Arnaud made a lot of unforced errros, either. Possibily they thought they would easily win or that Jelena would eventually retire?:rolleyes:

The only good about staying up was that I was rewarded with an English interview!! I honestly always thought Arnaud had only passable English, but I was quite surprised that he is actually quite fluent.:cool:

:zzz:

I'm happy he still wants to be playing at 35 :bounce:

And for the wife thing, shall I wrap him in a ribbon to give my sister as a present? I'm sure she'll have no problem with that at all :lol:

Thanks for the pics :) It's weird seeing Djokovic with glasses, I'm still not used to it, makes him look older. And Arnaud's face at that picture :lol:

Cruising through the rest of the thread, I come across this: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=6374409&postcount=15 :eek:

emily (emilita) is doing a report and photo gallery on hopman cup, and she has a few photos from the france v argentina doubles http://atptenniszone.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album03&page=2

website: http://www.geocities.com/atp_chica/The_Unofficial_ATP_Zone.html

bruno alert: i didn't remember that bruno is still having his head shaved. i hope arnaud isn't getting similar ideas (again) once the mercury soars.....
And I was hoping that after almost a year of not seeing them irl his beautiful hair would've grown back :sad: Is it a good hint to get him to sign a picture of him with a ponytail? :p Or just ask him when he lets his hair grow back (if I have the guts)? ;)

What do you mean with 'once the mercury soars' ?

I'm not available.... yet :angel:

Ok, who's that I just saw on TV holding up the "MARRY ME ARNAUD" sign???:haha:
That was me ;)
No i'm just kidding, Arnaud may be desperate but I'm not :rolleyes:

I'm happy he still wants to be playing at 35 :bounce:

And for the wife thing, shall I wrap him in a ribbon to give my sister as a present? I'm sure she'll have no problem with that at all :lol:
No problem at all :angel:
That would be great, and i'll give Bruno to you :lol: as a late birthday gift :p
Maybe we can kidnap them in Marseille.. ;)

I hope he still plays at 35... i think he will... in 2004 people were telling me he was going to quit and i refused to believe it, and guess who's still playing :) Feels so good to be right

And Arnaud's face at that picture :lol:

Cruising through the rest of the thread, I come across this: http://www.menstennisforums.com/showpost.php?p=6374409&postcount=15 :eek:
I think Arnaud looks a bit old in that picture...:confused:

And who is that person and where did he or she live? in a cave?

Last but not least: :aparty: Happy new year with lots of Arnaud ( and Bruno for my sis):aparty:

I just read the thread where you talk about the veteran stuff and i just thought of something: he just needs a much younger wife so she can keep him act and feel young :lol: Like someone who's 21 years old *hint* :angel: :haha:

you must have got the same broadcast as we did over here. so, how many times had the word 'veteran' been used by commentators? lol

i can see why arnaud doesn't like playing mixed doubles... he doesn't like punishing the girls (or suffer the indignity that they may hit harder than he :lol: )

And I was hoping that after almost a year of not seeing them irl his beautiful hair would've grown back :sad: Is it a good hint to get him to sign a picture of him with a ponytail? :p Or just ask him when he lets his hair grow back (if I have the guts)? ;)

mercury is the stuff inside thermometers ;)

:rolls: i actually think that younger wives make older husbands look even older. not that the men realise that themselves :rolleyes:

i won't be surprised that arnaud's girlfriends will be progressively younger each time:devil:

Thank you a lot for the report and sorry that it was such an awful doubles match :hug: Well, yes, now it becomes clearer why Arnaud doesn’t like playing mixed. And not that I disagree with his point.
