HAMBURG: Another Bad Draw - Do Your Best Nico!

Nico's ranked #32 right now.

32 seeds at Roland Garros.

Its now or never to make sure he stays in the top 32. Last week to get points before the seeds come out.

There are 3 players ahead of him that aren't playing - Andre, Andreev, and someone else that the person who told us can't remember. I'll try to find out.

That obviously pulls him up to #29 in the seeds as of right now.

(I hope I'm figuring this all right - I'm clueless at these rankings things - if I'm wrong, please let me know so I can fix this before too many people read it. )

He's worked so hard to get there - hopefully he can do it! He totally deserves it!

VAMOS NICO! YOU CAN DO IT!

Re: HAMBURG: Now or Never for Nico

FYI.

The main draw is pulled tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. Hamburg time.

That's 8:00 a.m. Chile time.

Probably will take an hour or two before they post it on their web site.

Re: HAMBURG: Now or Never for Nico

FYI

Massu doesn't defend points in Hamburg because they were erased this week and the other player that withdrew is Lleyton.

<... FERNANDO GONZALEZ ...>
LLEYTON HEWITT

Richard Gasquet/Tomas Berdych/Marat Safin/Tommy Haas/Rafael Nadal/Andy Roddick/Marcos Baghdatis
All the chilean players and some others

Re: HAMBURG: Now or Never for Nico



I can't believe this. Another sucky draw.

I'm really tired of this - I don't even want to follow the match.



There goes the seeding for Roland Garros.

Re: HAMBURG: Now or Never for Nico

I woke up and the first thing that I did was to turned on the tv to follow the semifinals and then I heard the commentators saying the great news of the "GREAT" draw that we got I can't freaking believe this shit!!!!

The next time I'll ask for a tough draw, then maybe we'll get the opposite .... this just sucks!!! and Davydenko wans't feeling very good in Rome and he retired against Almagro but I'm sooo sure that he'll be excellent for Nico's match, because that's our lovely luck

Yes ... good bye to the seeding in RG :hysterical:

But still ... BUENA SUERTE NICO!!! WE'LL SUPPORT YOU NO MATTER WHAT

Re: HAMBURG: Another Bad Draw And With It Bye Bye To A RG Seeding

I don´t like the Draw...above all the first round! Nico vs. Davy and Tommy vs. Nadal.

But i think Nico has the chance to win at least. VAMOS!!

Re: HAMBURG: Another Bad Draw And With It Bye Bye To A RG Seeding

Not a good draw but....Nico can come through. I've found that often when I think the draw is awful my favs do well and vice versa. Last time Nico had a Qualifier which should be easier but ...well, that qualifier went on to challange Roger in the quarters so you never know.

Anyway, while being realistic, I'm not going to give up hope .
