Well he's comming back on courts. He's in Quimper draw round1 vs Carreno-Busta. The only goal of that match is not being injured again and be able to run :angel: Finger crossed for the calf

About the schedule he's in Bergamo entry list next week, hoping a WC for Open 13 and should play Cherbourg with a WC or with his ranking.

Little interview in the local newspaper. He's not sure to be competitiv on this tournament. For the challenger now he prefers to play mostly the ones in France. Marseille will be one of the goal of his season. He continues as the pleasure is still here and thinks month by month now due to his body.

So he's ready to lose in his mind. Well hopefully body will gives positiv signs but I still found crazy he's on courts 18 days after a calf strain.

He's on double draw with Nico Devilder the dwarf team is back. They start tuesday evening after PHM http://www.opendequimper.com/arnaud-clement-et-paul-henri-mathieu-debutent-mardi/

I probably said it before, but I will say it again. Your information finding skills are amazing! :worship:

In the article they say Arnaud is 33, is 34 the age where you are getting younger again every year? :lol:
I still love that picture from DC, for me that was the match I will remember the most in my years as a fan of Arnaud. :hearts:

i have to second that!

soulage when arno has retired, you must run a course on 'how to dig up stuff on the internet'

and yes i find it incredible too, barely two weeks after he abandoned the doubles in melbourne, he's fit enough to be playing again competitively. something is not right :aplot:

Last message on facebook today stresses that he will need time to recover his speed and tonicity. Then he tells us He will eat crabs tonight :lol:



Another internet found http://www.letelegramme.com/sports/...e&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss&xtor=RSS-24

The link for the video report on Arno
http://videos.letelegramme.com/player.php?sig=8aae5b78795s

He loves the surface but has a lot of doubts about his injury and his level of play. Julien JeanPierre is with him ;) He's cute in that and looks happy to be there. Tell if the video doesn't work abroad.



The twitter of the tournament gives the link for another video where we see he's not moving so well

A french course ?

Arno will do a signature session in a supermarket :lol: at 2 pm tomorrow He'll play at 6 pm so not the best way to be focus. He will surely no stay longer in Quimper but he will have do a lot of medias for the tournaments promotion.

Yes, I've started a course. No, I still can't understand your language. ;)
I've started at a beginners level, we've recently learned the passé compose. :p And when we have listening exercises, I only really understand what they say when I can read along in the textbook. :lol:

Why in a supermarket? :confused: :lol:
Should be weird for him and the customers, a tennis superstar in between groceries. :p

We even get the video of the creps party :lol:




Arno wins in two sets 61/64 against the spaniard. I watch his ATP profile and the guy only won one match since september :eek: It was a good way to win his first match of the season for Arno. More tough tomorrow against Donskoy at 6 pm.

The number of tie-break he lost last 3 years is really amazing but in a way it's just logical.

The surface was good for his game but it was not enough. It's not good for the confidence :sad: but it can be interesting what he can do in the next weeks with more training.

He's still in Bergamo list for next week let's see if he'll go there. No news about WC in Marseille but PHM also request one and two WC for 30 years old guys is too much imo :lol: He entered the Marseille doubles with Dlouhy who have a strange schedule tbh :eek:

Well a lot of news and video this week :D but just one win.

Of course we are used but we are still following :angel:

Donskoy served very well during last two sets very powerful so the vintage Arno :lol: didn't manage to win that :sad: Arno still miss the little plus to make the difference which is maybe the youth ?

Arno says he thinks he was better in the third but didn't take advantage of the nervosity of Donskoy and made some stupid errors. It was a good fight he didn't feel pain in his calf and was moving quite well after that long break. It's a pity to stop here but Quimper will stay the place of his first win of the season.

Arnaud Clément a perdu, ce soir lors du deuxième tour de l’Open de Quimper face à Evgeny Donskoy. Après avoir remporté le premier set, l’ancien numéro 10 mondial n’a pas pu aller plus loin.

« C’était un match solide des deux côtés, on n’a rien lâché, mais il est dommage de ne pas aller plus loin. Je pense que je suis au dessus sur le troisième set, mais je n’arrive pas à profiter de sa nervosité, explique Arnaud Clément. Je fais aussi quelques fautes bêtes, mais c’était un beau combat. Je n’ai pas souffert de ma blessure au mollet, et j’ai réussi à me déplacer plutôt bien après cette inactivité. J’ai fait de bonnes choses, donc c’est dommage de s’arrêter. En tout cas, Quimper restera comme ma première victoire de la saison. »
