I'm really bad at math. But by my calculations, Nico will have 845 points? If I'm right that would put him in the top 40?

I hope I'm right.

If I'm wrong, my apologies.

I saw the match, the last point was amazing

About the ranking: should be 43/44

Interview with Nico after his win.

From Radio Cooperativa:

After celebrating his triumph against Spanish Alberto Martin in the finals at Costa do Sauipe, the viñamarino maintained to raise the crown in Brazil is an impulse to confront a full year of challenges.

Has left all well Nicolas Massú (55º of the ATP) in the last few weeks. In fact al to conquer the crown of the ATP of Coast of Sauipe completed its better month after that of damned period" of injuries that removed him of the first places in the rankings.

After playing the AustraliaOpen and to fall in the first round, Massú had a fruitful step by the dust of clay al to reach the final of Vina del Mar, to the quarterfinals of Davis Cup al to defeat to Slovakia in Rancagua, to play of great form before Spanish Carlos Moyá in the second roun of Buenos Aires and to win in Brazil.

"Already I was number nine of the world and I began the year 69º. It is not easy to return, but this victory gives me a lot of confidence for what comes. I want to arrive at Montecarlo inside the 40 better and to be able to arrive at Roland Garros as head of series", maintained Massú.

On its victory for 6-3 and 6-4 on Saturday night front al Spanish Alberto Martin in Brazil, the viñamarino commented: "I played very well. Was one of my better matches of the tournament. To the 4-1 of the second was playing perfect. Later I was a little nervous and cost me to close the encounter, but al final I recovered the concentration".

Massú confidenció that this title has a special flavor, since to last minute maintained the doubt to play in Costo do Sauipe.

"It is true that neither came to play. Was a little tired by the matches of the circuit and of the Davis Cup. It was not the tournament, but a problem with me. Therefore I had to be strong mentally to win the tournament", indicated.

In his immediate agenda, Massú refuses to renounce to play in Acapulco, that would be advisable so that took a rest. Then he will act in the Masters Series of Indian Wells (of the 6 al 19 of March) and Miami (of March 20 al 2 of April). After that will act as visit in the Davis Cup before United States (7, 8 and 9 of April). (Agencies)

Brasil Open
Costa do Sauipe, Brazil
February 25, 2006
Massu Claims Sixth ATP Title

©Denis Ferreira Netto
Sixth seed Nicolas Massu claimed his sixth career title - and first since his double gold medal performance at the 2004 Athens Olympics - with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Spaniard Alberto Martin at the Brasil Open.
Massu served for the match at 5-2 but had to wait until 5-4 to claim his fifth clay court singles title on his third match point.

Argentine legend Guillermo Vilas and Brazil’s Maria Esther Bueno were on court for the trophy ceremony.

Massu claimed his second title in Latin America, having won Buenos Aires in 2002.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Massu: "I am very happy since this is my first title since the Olympics. I did get nervous at the end of the match but thanks to God I managed to close it and win this very important title.

"This tournament is great and I see that it improves every year. As the tournament in my country in Vina del Mar I see this Latin American swing as very important since it allows me and the other Latin American players to play in our region.

"I also want to congratulate Beto Martin for a great week. He is a great player and a great person. I also want to acknowledge his coach (Marcos Gorriz) for being also a great professional."

Martin: "I want to congratulate Nicolas for this title. He deserved to win today. This is a great tournament and this was my second final here. I hope I can come back many times and maybe win the title.”

Day 5: Martin, Massu Advance to Final
Day 4: Chela Upset in Brasil Open QF; Martin Advances
Day 3: Gaudio, Volandri, Serra Lose in Second Round
Day 2: Gaudio Advances as Ferrero, Kuerten Fall
Day 1: Vanek Advances to Second Round
