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?
You don't understand the joke with the name, which is long running in this forum. It's a form of appreciation.
