RIJEKA: Better Result In Tunis, But Still Needs Changes To Go Back To Regular Circuit

Well much better results in Tunis - Nico won two matches in a row!!!

But he still needs to make that coaching change in order to beat guys on the regular circuit - he's still losing to low ranked guys on the challenger circuit.

As Mr. Bowie sings: Ch-ch-ch-changes....

while Nicofan and Lovely duke it out on thread titles I will wish Nico good luck in Rjeka!

You found you could win in Tunis Nico, so keep on doing it now! And I have to admit none of the names in his section of the draw are very familiar to me so I hope that means its a good draw

VAMOOOOOOOS NICO!!!

I've seen Balleret playing a couple of time (once last year in Monte Carlo and another time on indoors but don't remember where ).He's a Futures Player and likes Clay. He reached the semis last year In Rijeka

I recognize Ballaret's name too, but can't remember where.

Hopefully Nico will be positive after Tunis.

It is hard to be positive.

But after he loses these 90 points, I don't think that he has any points to defend for the rest of the year. He didn't win anything for months last year. So if he keeps playing in challengers, he's bound to move up.

The problem will come if he decides to qualify for regular tournaments too quickly. He'll lose and go down more for sure then. He's got to get his confidence back on challengers first, and then go back.

Mabye that's why he's avoided playing Challengers in the past even when we thought it would be good for his confindece-just not many points there. Of course, now he doesn't have much choice. I guess the most I can hope for is he keeps on winning wherever he's playing and the points and ranking will eventually follow
