Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Always whining you are. He has been over there for a while, it's not going to kill him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

I just think it's a strange decision and I'd rather see him continuing his good form on clay.

And you, pff. It doesn't matter what your favourite player does, you always have a reason to brush it away and stay positive. It must be hard living with you.

Rui is back in Europe and will be playing in Napoli. As for Estoril, he will get a wildcard.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Rui is in the Napoli final after beating Golubev, he will either play Garcia or del Bonis.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wins the first set after a very long game with lots of missed sps and a bp.

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Great Machado!!! You can call me a patriot, but i really think that Machado is a Top100 player. It's not going to happen that soon, cause he have to defend too many points, included in Roland Garros, where he came from the Quali to lose in the 2ºround. But in the end of the year i think he will be the 3rd portuguese to be in the top100...

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

As long as Rui is fit and can build on these results, then he can finish the year in the top 100.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I agree, is in the best form of his carrer... This week, just missed the top100 by only 2 places (102), but like you say, if he keep building this kind of results, he will be surely in top100 this year. Maybe he can be a surprise in some ATP 250 level in the clay. Hope he do well, especially in Estoril, i have faith in him!

Go Machado!!!

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

He has an aggressive game and an excellent forehand which can cause damage. Needs to get fitter, stronger and that comes with time, plus improving his shot selection.

If he can make RG directly it would be great.

It's not going to be easy, he won't play this week, and last year in this same week he won Athens Challeger. Means that that he surely will lose 100 points this week.
