Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...4 More Days to Clay!!!!

Yes, thanks for the link Nicofan. I hope he surprises us there. At least we have low expectations now so there will be little dissapointment if he doesn't do well. Of course, we will say we told him so....

Not sure Alx - probably Saturday - usually is for the smaller tournaments. But I'll check tomorrow anyway - just in case.

Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...4 More Days to Clay!!!!

BTW - with Rafa going so far at Wimbledon, I wonder if he'll play there? Kind of doubt it. Would be one less seeded player that we'd have to worry about for Nico to draw in the first round.

Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...4 More Days to Clay!!!!

yes Alexito was telling me that but actually we know that Rafa is kind of unstopable so I'm not sure if he'd skip the next week

Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...4 More Days to Clay!!!!

Rafael Nadal withdraws in Bastad.
A news from Cooperativa

Tenis: Rafael Nadal anunció su deserción del ATP de Bastad

El español Rafel Nadal, número dos del tenis mundial, comunicado a los organizadores del ATP de Bastad (Suecia) que no disputará la próxima semana el torneo porque está "completamente rendido" debido a su participación en Wimbledon.

"Es frustrante tener que retirarme de mi torneo favorito. Ahora haré cuanto pueda para ganar Wimbledon, pero estoy completamente rendido y por desgracia no hay forma de que pueda cargar las pilas para una semana más", dijo Nadal en un comunicado.

El español jugará este viernes una de las semifinales de Wimbledon ante el chipriota Marcos Baghdatis. (EFE)

Thanks for the info Alx! In one way, I'm sad Rafa won't be there. But for Nico's sake, I'm happy!

Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...2 More Days to Clay!!!!

Well the first round is okay - Nico plays Zabaleta.

But second round...the winner of Chucho or Coria. And Coria just beat David F this week so he's obviously on the rebound.

Here's the draw:

DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS (1) vs MARTIN, Alberto ESP
MINAR, Ivo CZE vs Qualifier
MASSU, Nicolas CHI vs ZABALETA, Mariano ARG
ACASUSO, Jose ARG vs CORIA, Guillermo ARG (7)

BERDYCH, Tomas CZE (3) vs ALMAGRO, Nicolas ESP
Qualifier vs CALLERI, Agustin ARG
PASHANSKI, Boris SCG vs SÖDERLING, Robin SWE
Qualifier vs FERRER, David ESP (5)

FERRERO, Juan Carlos ESP (8) vs ELESKOVIC, Ervin SWE (WC)
MARACH, Oliver AUT vs PRPIC, Filip SWE (WC)
VINCIGUERRA, Andreas SWE (WC) vs DLOUHY, Lukas CZE
CHELA, Juan Ignacio ARG vs NIEMINEN, Jarkko FIN (4)

JOHANSSON, Thomas SWE (6) vs HORNA, Luis PER
Qualifier vs SERRA, Florent FRA
BJÖRKMAN, Jonas SWE vs WASKE, Alexander GER
SIMON, Gilles FRA vs ROBREDO, Tommy ESP (2)


VAMOS NICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU CAN DO IT!

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...First Round: Nico vs. Zabaleta

Z has been having his problems this year. He had knee surgery earlier in the year, and has played 3 challengers since coming back in May.

Here's his player profile:

Re: BASTAD - Talk Dirt To Me...First Round: Nico vs. Zabaleta

I really wouldn't worry too much about Coria. I watched his exhibition match against Ferrer last night - and he really wasn't so impressive. Let's just say Ferrer had just come off a great run at Wimbledon, was obviously tired, and had a flight to catch this morning He can play a hell of a lot better than he did against Coria, who still seemed to be serving a lot of double faults. One thing though - I wouldn't underestimate MZ - who was a winner of this tournament a couple of years ago and has chosen it as one of his "protected ranking" ones because it's his favourite tourney and he has a big fan base in Sweden. I know he has an appalling record this year (only won a couple of matches all year I believe) - but I fear he may be trying extra hard to prove something in Bastad - so Nico - be careful!
