Re: Nico News and Articles

Nico wants to play the US next in Davis Cup - wants to play Andy and Andre. I know both boys have a lot of respect for Andy and idolized Andre when they were younger, so it would be a thrill for the two of them.

But he's talking hardcourts here - I think the US is thinking about grass.

Re: Nico News and Articles

What a beautiful picture of our chico!

Can't translate it because its in lun.com but from what my bad spanish can tell, he says that he's back to being the fighter, and that while he doesn't know what he wants to do when he retires from tennis, he does dream of being Captain of the Chilean Davis Cup team someday.

Re: Nico News and Articles

An article from el mercurio, NicoFan can traslate it later it says that Nico will be playing an exhibition with Marcelo Rios in Chile on Jun 14th .... interesting huh?

Una exhibición entre Marcelo Ríos y Nicolás Massú en la Arena Santiago. A la concesionaria que administra el gimnasio techado del Parque O'Higgins se le abrió el apetito con la opción de albergar ese partido, pues sería el debut de un evento deportivo en el coliseo, y la primera vez que el tenis volvería al recinto desde el recordado bochorno ocurrido en 2000 durante la Copa Davis contra Argentina.

En un primer momento, la opción se descartó, pues el viñamarino debía volver el 12 de junio a Europa, y el estadio estaba ocupado antes de esa fecha. Pero ayer, Manuel Massú, padre del tenista, informó que su retoño retomaría el circuito recién el 17, por lo que seguía en pie la chance de jugar en la capital, en un gimnasio que, por lo demás, tiene una capacidad enorme: doce mil espectadores.

Sin embargo, Alfredo Araus, director de Prodmarket (la compañía que está a cargo de la exhibición), enterró ayer cualquier posibilidad de jugar en la capital.

"Los administradores de la Arena estaban muy entusiasmados, y trataron de hacer un lugar hasta última hora, pero fue imposible. La exhibición se confirma entonces para el 14 de junio. Se jugará a las 22 horas en el Gimnasio Municipal de Concepción", informó el productor.

Re: Nico News and Articles

Nico is home!



From latercera.cl:

Nicolas Massú (35º) this Monday arrived to the country, after reaching the third round of Roland Garros, where he fell in four sets before Swiss Roger Federer (1º).

To his arrival, the viñamarino was shown satisfied with he carried out in the second one Grand Slam of the season, where he beat Belgian Xavier Malisse andBelorussian Max Mirnyi.

Besides, the second national racquet qualified as "positive" his action in the first part of the season.

"I have completed my expectations. In some tournaments was me well, in other not so much, but last year I finished in the position 67 and now I am 35".

Massú won this year the tournament of Costa do Sauipe (Brazil) and was a finalist in Casablanca, falling in the Moroccan clay before Italian Daniele Bracciali, and Vina del Mar, where inclined front of Argentine José Acasuso.

The Olympic champion clarified that could have scaled still more in the world classification, but finally the drawings did not favor it in some tournaments.

"In the last important tournaments always they touched me rival that were among the ten first. Once I lost with the 6º, later with the 10º and now last with Federer", asserted.

The pupilo of Gabriel Markus confirmed in the opportunity that at the end of month will be measured in an exhibition game, in the Tortuga de Talcahuano, al former number one of the world and present leader of the circuit of veterans, Marcelo Rios.

Now, el "Vampire" will test his luck in the exhibition of Buckhinghamshire, important subject to the third Grand Slam of the season, Wimbledon, that will be played since June 26 in England.

The viñamarino only defends second round in the English grass, for which any greater advance would be translated in an ascent in the ranking.

Re: Nico News and Articles

Well I didn't know where to post this 'cause we don't have a thread for exhibition events ... and besides it's so good to finally know something about Nico and to finally know that we'll have an score board in cooperativa yeay!!!

Good luck Nico today!!

BTW it's in spanish so NicoFan has to translate it

Marcelo Ríos y Nicolás Massú arreglan su "cuenta pendiente"

A las 22:00 horas, el ex número uno del mundo y el campéon olímpico disputarán una exhibición en el Gimnasio Municipal de Concepción, un duelo que no pudo concretarse en la gira de despedida del zurdo.


En 2004, una lesión le impidió a Nicolás Massú enfrentar a Marcelo Ríos en la gira de despedida del ex número uno del mundo y este miércoles el viñamarino y el zurdo de Vitacura arreglarán esa cuenta pendiente en el Gimnasio Municipal de Concepción. Siga este partido en el Marcador Virtual de Cooperativa.cl.

A las 22:00 horas (02:00 GMT) es la cita en la Octava Región para ver frente a frente al chileno que más alto ha llegado en el ranking ATP y al campeón olímpico.

En el circuito profesional sólo una vez se pudo ver este choque. Fue en la primera ronda del US Open 2000, con victoria de Ríos por 6-3, 7-5, 1-6 y 7-6 (6).

Nicolás Massú se ubica actualmente en 32º lugar del Sistema de Entrada de la ATP y se prepara para iniciar la próxima semana la temporada de césped en un torneo de exhibición en Buckinhamshire, para luego continuar en Wimbledon.

Marcelo Ríos reaparecerá el 8 de agosto en Portugal en el Merril Lynch Tour of Champions para seniors, el cual lidera tras haber ganado los dos primeros de los cuatro certámenes disputados hasta ahora. (Cooperativa.cl)

Re: Nico News and Articles

Yes, he is playing in my city (Concepción) today (well, I study here, but I'm from Puerto Montt, a southern chilean city)

Ther bad thing is that I don't have money to go
And there's a very rainy day today in Concepción, and also think that the producers are not making a good job to promote the exhibition, personally I don't know of anyone that will go to the exhibition

Well, I finish my job at 6 p.m and the tickets will be selling till 7 p.m and for this I found very difficult that I could go "La tortuga de Talcahuano" stadium where the match will be played is far from where I study and live... and second, the tickets are selling in a department store, not in the stadium. It will be started too late and the locomotion is not the best (I remember when I'd go to the Feña-Nico exhibition 2 years ago after the olympics)

And for Zine56: the match will be played in indoor carpet (and a very bad carpet IMO sponsored by Chiledeportes )

A post that deserves to be on MTF Hall of Fame soon:
