Re: Nico News and Articles

That would have been unfair for low ranked players if Nico had played the all Petrobras Tour...

Re: Nico News and Articles

I think there's absolutely no shame to play a challenger. What is the interest to play against top50 players and always lose.
In the challengers, there are not only "medium" players. There are players who were injuried or players who just turn pro.
Remember that Agassi made it to recover his best level

and I think Nico should be more realistic with his current level

Re: Nico News and Articles

I have nothing against the idea of Nico playing Challengers I just said that some Challengers are more interesting than others to improve...Nico is not that desperate to play against all those top-200 players...
Some Challengers have better entry lists and that the ones he should play..
I've seen those Challenger guys playing and once again I have nothing at all against them (I love watching tennis and even go on Challengers...)but if you compare the game of Nico with the one of those guys it's two different levels...

Re: Nico News and Articles

Nico's lever or category is great on practice and sucks on real matches, all of us have seen that during the year ... and well maybe he is not that desperate, we're the ones desperate to see him rising his leven and his freaking ranking

damn it I promised to stop talking about this I won't do it again I promise to myself

Re: Nico News and Articles

Yep Nico needs points. Look at his current rank. And the chances on clay are even better, I'd prefered the Challenger Series too.

I hope he can do something in St. Petersburg or Paris but I'm not very confident. It's time to show us the opposite Nicolas M.

Re: Nico News and Articles

Sorrrrrrrrrrrry Lovely but I have to go with everyone else.

Nico may be practicing well, but he's terrible in matches. He needs to get his confidence up again. And as everyone else is saying, he desperately needs points.

And what good is it doing him to play all these tournaments, just to lose in the first round?

As someone said, Andre came back playing challengers. And if Andre can do it, Nico sure as heck can.

Good for you.

(Even though you are wrong. )

I know your real reason too - you want to see Nico again in Paris-Bercy.

Re: Nico News and Articles

I can't stand this

His form has deteriorated so much in the last few years. It's almost as if he's not the same player anymore. He needs to change something, obviously what he's been doing isn't working for him.
