wow his holiday ended earlier than mine lol

actually noumea is still a holiday, right? enjoy :D
Exactly, that was I was going to answer: it's great holiday !!!!!!!!
ohh yeah january is the month of the year when I always dream of going down under. I'm so jealous !!!! :p

Soulage, do you mean Arnaud never writes his messages on FB ? LOL
It's also my opinion, but I think it's a pity if he's not able to take 2 min of his free time, every week, to say hello to his fans.

It's strange because at the beginning of Internet Arno was connected with his fans. Then he's not a big fan of social media so it's surely why he never post himself well maybe he did it 2 times last year :lol: but when he will stop it means no more news :sad:

The forecast for Noumea is not great for next days. It will be rainy days hope he can pratice and play some matches.

I think he emails some messages for Sylvain to post. I think the messages with quotation marks are actual quotations from Arnaud. Like the ones about how he feels in a tournament for example. :)

And when he stops his own fb also isn't a guarantee for news. Nico L does his own fb, but there's hardly any news there. Only some promo for events he does for charity and that's it.

Happy new year :bigwave:

Yes it's surely a phone call or a mail and Sylvain posted it as it was Arno but it remains a little bit impersonal. True that if the player is not himself activ on his social media during his carreer tough to think he will be after retirement :sad: Grosjean has a twitter and a facebook and it's a desert :sad:

Back to Noumea Arno is not playing doubles hope it's not for pain problems :confused: and just a logistic question. It's raining for next days and no indoor courts there :umbrella: It will be an adaptated schedule all week. Arno is playing R1 vs a french of course :p Burquier on tuesday but with the weather nothing sure.

Happy New Year, Bonne Année everybody !!!!

Yes u're right, but I don't understand why he prefers to email Sylvain, it would be faster , et more direct, to post 2 little sentences on FB.
(il préfère peut-être qu'on corrige ses fautes. :p)

Happy new year everyone! :cheerleader:

Well, if he had fb it would be easy to post himself, but since he doesn't use it, he also can't post there. :shrug:
Personally I don't care who pushes the publish button on fb, as long as the message comes from Arnaud it's as personal as if he would type it himself imo. If he emails it, Sylvain can copy and paste it, there's no difference in what he wants to say to us. :)
You could even say that he cares more since this takes more effort. :p

happy new year! i'm very aware of it as the new year brings tennis to tv :lol:

i have to say i also rather he posts on fb himself... when it's done through another person, it can be edited, polished etc etc it's just not the same.

it's hard to imagine a single guy of his age, travelling a lot, does not use fb! it's not like he stays at home looking after a few kids you know ;)

Happy new year to you too! Yes, I'm always happy about that, finally something again after a quiet time. :D

Maybe Arnaud just doesn't like fb? One of my French friends (about my age) is completely against it. He has an account just to follow his closest friends and that's it. And I know more people who you'd expect to have FB and they don't. And if they do they rarely use it. It might seem weird in a time where everyone seems to have it, but it's really more common than you think.
I do know there was a fake account for Arnaud in 2010. I asked Arnaud about it at a tournament and he said it wasn't his. The account was also removed a few months later, I think many people reported it.
But he also did the videos for the FB, so I really think he knows what's going on on his fb. But maybe I'm too naive when it comes to this. I just don't really mind if it's a little edited/polished, as long as it still reflects what he wanted to say. The same happens with every interview he gives unless it's on tape. And in a way it's better to know that it's not him than when he would let others post for him and pretend he posts himself.
Maybe he prefers other ways to keep in touch with his family/friends which aren't suitable to keep in touch with all his fans.
And didn't Arnaud say in his book that he used to be outdoors and Bruno was the one who was interested in computers and stuff? :lol:

Someone wants a bit of news He lost to Burquier 62/46/57 and that's not the worst :sad:

He was 4-1 up in the third set with BP to lead 5-1. When he served for the match at 5-3 he was 40-00 up :rolleyes: even had a fourth MP on Ad to finally be broken on first BP :mad:. I can't hardly remember him losing after 4 MP on serve :facepalm:. The stats are very good the result a nightmare for him. I don't know what's happened on those points :confused: Maybe more news in newspaper as i was not awake.

I'm sure the post match was very tough :hug: that's cruel to lose a match like that. The last season can't be a nightmare losing in those ways vs a nobodody in first round of a challenger :sobbing::sobbing:. Next must be Melbourne qualies and i'm already worried :sadface:. Poor boy doesn't deserve this kind of losses :sad:


I think the doubles list for Melbourne must be out this week not sure but I hope he found someone to play with him and make the cut cos coming down under to play 2 matches :rolleyes:

:facepalm::facepalm: let's hope it's not to do with any injury.

i've been checking the melbourne forum every day hoping to see the doubles entry. if arno's not playing, i may leave melbourne very quickly too :unsure: the fact that he doesn't play doubles in noumea does not give me a lot of hope.

I was more thinking of Skype or something more private. :) And yes, maybe phone, who knows. :p

I also hope it's not an injury. :scared: Let's hope there's news for a reason why he lost with these stats. :sad:

Don't know the reason but the match was in his hands 40-00 up I mean he should have never lose that. His serve stats are very good so very strange :sad: Start the year by that is near the worst start and the draw was open good way to win points :eek: The quarter finalist are all winnable. from official site
Arnaud Clément ( tête de série N6) a manqué 4 balles de matchs sur son service, perdant 7/5 dans le 3ème sets face au jeune Grégoire Burquier ( 248 ème), offensif et opportuniste
From the local newspaper we learn that Arno was palying well in first set that in the second set Arno was broken at 4-4 and that the heat was very important and it had impact on the game. And i nust notice that Arno already lost to Burquier in Interclub in November.

Well I think he should be seeds in AO qualies but it will be tough and tricky and that loss not help :sad:. For double he has not a good ranking so not easy and does he really want to play it ? Maybe he will give us news on Facebook :p
