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

The match agains Harrison, it's the last in court 4, today! One of the biggest matches today, probably the bigger one. Although Rui is 10 seed, a thing Ryan is the favourite for this one, considering it is one Hard surface. But IMO that Machado does very well on this surface and the results on US Open, in the past, shows that... VAMOS RUI!

Rui lost 5-7 7-6(5) 6-3, that's a tough loss especially in the TB. He is back on the clay now playing in Como.

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

Very dramatic match. Rui saved 2 set points in 1st set (to eventually win it), plus save 6 set ponts (to eventually lost it) and then, when he eas leading 3-0 in final set and everything look good to eliminate the young american talent, he lost 6 pontis in a row. Very, very dramatic and sad lost, and lots of points lost here

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

Now that's the Rui i know! Huge tittle in Paraguay, and so fucking close to top100 finally! Hope he doesn't blew it this time. A QF in Santiago should be enough to assure him a top 100 spot, for the first time ever in his carrer, and 3rd portuguese player to do it so, after Nuno Marques and Frederico Gil. (yeah, I know our tennis history sucks...)

He has made the QF plays the big serving Souza. Hope he is still the ball like a football.

Fortunately an upswing at the end of the year. Was an up and down year, but good to at least finish it this way.

He will be the 3rd portuguese player to achieve the Top100, after Frederico Gil and Nuno Marques.

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

Well, to be honest, as a portuguese I don't really like that you see him as "Scottish number 1". Why? Because it suggests me that we don't really care about him and that's not true. You can support him but you don't need to create useless titles.

Back to the topic, Machado/De La Nava will play against Ferrero/Sa in Sao Paulo Challenger (final). But after this tournament, will he continue playing this season?
