Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

Time to move this thread up - I'm not being critical of our boy (am saying the same about Nico too), but he has to really focus and work very hard this summer clay season. His ranking has gone down so much - it can't slip anymore. Can only blame the bad draws so much...

Forget about the hair.

Forget Daphne. (I know will be difficult for him...lol!)

Forget the parties.

No more fun.

He's got to focus and put in some serious practice time.

Get to Gstaad early.

Lots of great clay players out of Wimbledon - get with them and spend the necessary time on court.

He doesn't want to go into hardcourt season (which he is also good on) having to qualify for master series events etc. If he can put in a great clay court season, he can move up again.

Fer sweetie - start to kick some butt!

Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

Well, for Carlos' sake lets hope Fer reads all this! And listens

Isnt Gstaad the one where you really have to adjust to the air and stuff? Being high above sea level???

I hope for Fer's sake that he reads it and listens...

I adore the boy, and its sad to see such an extremely talented player down in the rankings and having to qualify again. He s/b in the top twenty if not top fifteen. Don't know what is happening with my sweetie, but he needs to turn this around before it goes further.

I'm not sure about Gstaad because Nico usually plays Balstad so I usually concentrate on that tournament. But this year he's playing Gstaad too.

I'll check around and find out.

Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

I think it is!! Not every player can adjust and could have trouble breathing normally there.

So maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to go there early and try to get used to it a little!!

VAMOS FERNANDOOOOOO

Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

That's actually good news for both Fer and Nico.

Madrid has a high altitude also - a lot of players have trouble playing it. But Fer is obviously from Madrid, so it shouldn't be a problem for him.

Ditto Nico from Chile where I guess they have high altitutudes too because they also say when he plays Madrid its not a problem for him because he's used to it.

Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

But with that said, I still want both Fer and Nico to go early to Gstaad - between both of them not having troubles with the altitudes because they are used to it, they will have even more of an advantage if they go early and get used to the courts there.

Good grief, I hope they don't meet early in the tournament.

Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

@ Lyn (hope I got yer name right ) He has to focus and win as many matches as he can....vamos Fer! We believe in you !
I truly hope for a good draw in Gstaad...he has been getting really shitty draws and he got a low confidence level which made him lose even the easier matches..
But I'm positive about this summer it's gonna be a loooooooooooooooong hot summer

Totally agree! It's horrible seeing him stuck in the 50's - he's a definite top 20 player. Come on Fer, put some graft into it.

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1

Doesn't look good for Nico - I think the Olympics points the same week that this year is Cincy - something like 400 points, and he lost in the first round in Cincy last year. I'll be there this year rooting him on, but doubt it will help too much. No confidence, no coach but lots of points to defend = huge rankings drop this summer. He's be down to 60 something if he can't get it into gear quickly.

Both my chicos are in the same place. They both have the ability to be top 20, top 15 players, but both have no confidence on the court. And Fer's ranking is already low, and Nico's on a path to follow him down there.

Both need to just focus, no fun, practice practice practice. And get tough mentality (easier said than done).

I wish I could give both of them lots of but what they need more is . The lack of focus in both of them is making me want to . lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: The "Fernando KICKS @SS" Gstaad Thread

But it's not fair!!!!!!!!!! Why should Nico lose points if he can't defend them? This is bulls*it

I think so too!

But my Nico is just like my Fer - no luck... I think the Olympics is about the only really good thing that's ever happened to him.

In the end, they're both cute as bugs, and that's what really counts...

But I still want them to get back on track...lol! For their sakes.

Oh and btw yes its Lynn - just add another n to it.
