VEGAS: What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas-Hope Nico Stays In Vegas All Week!!!

Good luck to Nico in VEGAS!!!

It will be tough transitioning from clay to hardcourts, but hopefully he can get in a couple of matches.

Hope that he plays doubles too - that is still hardcourt time.

And if he has a tough week, having fun in Vegas will more than make up for it!

I have a feeling Nico will have a good time in Vegas no matter how his matches turn out

Now, listen to Nicofan and play doubles again Nico

FYI to everyone. Vegas time is the same as Los Angeles, California time. So 3 hours behind NYC time and 2 hours behind Mexico time.

Ouch! That is a lot.

There are certain times of the year that Chile has the same time as me, but it seems like that hasn't happened for a long time.

All these time changes are confusing.

Thanks for all the info Nicofan!

Looking over the entry list,there is only one US player. Where are they all???

This week has been nice for me-Mexico is in the same time zone as me. That only happens with a
handful of tournaments

Thanks for pointing that out Sparko.

Yeah, only Sam the Man is in the regular entry list, and Vinnay got in as an alternate.

I'm not surprised Andy isn't there. He already played San Jose and Memphis for the smaller American tournaments. But no Blake, Fish, etc. etc.

After all of the problems Blake caused there last year, you would think that he would come back and atone for his past sins.

Re: VEGAS: What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas-Hope Nico Stays In Vegas All Week!!!

so I guess I was right and seeing Roitman on the entry list confirms that Nico was asking him to partner up in doubles although I wouldn't mind him to partner up with Potito again
