Sounds great! I love that his motivation and will is still strong as ever. He sounds like he's got back to good fitness and that's very important for Nico, especially at his older age. All of that hard work will pay off for him, and the fact he ended his season early will end up in his benefit for 2011. It's very uplifting to read how determined he is, I feel uplifted as a fan!
There are some videos of Nico practicing (off courts, at the gym or doing physical training with his physical trainer Ricardo Luna) on my blog
