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

Thanks for your insight Rosie. I didn't know that about Mariano-it does cast a different light on the match. I hope Nico can beat him of course but it might not be as easy as I first thought. What a rotten year for Z but best of luck to him AFTER Bastad

What great names!!! I'm assuming Frodo is after Frodo in The Lord of The Rings?

And thanks for the info on Zab. Nico does need to be prepared. I'm a little worried because Nico hasn't really played well for awhile. I was hoping that he could come back during this part of the season. Seems both of them have something to prove here.

And also thanks for the info on Coria. Still having serve problems. Chucho will probably take care of him easily in the first then.

They are gorgeous - somewhat like my Frodo.............and yes - he is named after "The Lord of the Rings" character.As for Wilby- I just happened to be reading a book about Sir William Wilberforce when I found him dumped in the woods near my house - poor little soul with a damaged foot and a bad back Sir William was a good chap - one of the leading lights behind abolishing slavery a few hundred years ago and a champion of those much weaker than himself and in need of support - so the name kind of stuck with the cat!

Sir William Wilberforce sounds like he was a very cool dude!

And poor Wilby - who could do that do a defenseless little animal? Stupid people.

Sadly there are too many bad people out there All four of my boys were rescue cases - poor Caspar was dumped on a building site when he was just 6 weeks old and it was -12C outside in December That's why they are all so very special to me.

Ricardo - sorry about your Nico

Anyway - back on topic - VAMOS NICO

I've heard the name Zovko at Challengers sometimes.

Good chance to practise tomorrow.

I can't believe Nico is playing double with Lovro Zovko I've seen Lovro Zovko in double in a Challenger and he's a really good player

VAMOS GASTON
