Nico may have asked for the later date. Obviously I'm just speculating, but not sure how much time he got in on the clay last week because his grandfather being ill and practicing with Andre on hardcourts. He may have wanted another day's practice. Again just speculating of course.

yes, no speculation there Kid!

You could very probably be right Nicofan-it would make sense for Nico to ask for another day considering the circumstances.

I charged my cell phone this morning - so we're all set!

I'm going to call tonight around 7:30 - even though it's not posted online, they should have the OOP set by then for tomorrow - they have to give the guys some notice as to when they'll be playing the next day.

Re: RIVER OAKS: "I don't care if it's an exhibition" thread

Oh man...this sucks.

No one answers - you just get a message saying to leave your name and number.

They probably only answer during the day. And bet they won't have a clue what's happening on the court.



Why does our Nico always go to these freaking small tournaments with horrid web sites and bad/no live tickers?

Oh well if it helps him get ready for Monte Carlo, it's worth being frustrated. But why couldn't he have just gone to Valencia next week?

Re: RIVER OAKS: "I don't care if it's an exhibition" thread

NicoFan you're very difficult to please you keep saying that he should play small tournaments and challengers and now you want him on Valencia?!?! ... tranquila!

Anyway the organization of this exhibition sucks but for once in my life the chilean press is helping us according to emol Nico is playing tomorrow and he was the one asking to the tournament to play tomorrow since he got a delay with his flight and he even had to change planes in Peru where he called to the tournament to ask them to schedule his match for tomorrow, otherwise it seems that he was thinking to come back to Chile, so I guess that Nico didn't have a good and nice flight this time

here it's the article in spanish

Massú debutará este jueves en exhibición de HoustonMiércoles 4 de Abril de 2007
16:19
El Mercurio Online

SANTIAGO.- Un retraso en el vuelo que lo llevaba a Houston, que incluso lo obligó a cambiar de línea aérea en una escala mecánica hecha en Lima, Perú, postergó el debut de Nicolás Massú (55° de la ATP) en el torneo de exhibición River Oaks International, de Houston.

Massú debía jugar hoy con el alemán Benedikt Dorsch (185°), pero antes de continuar su viaje a Estados Unidos desde Lima se comunicó con la organización del campeonato, los que accedieron a suspenderle el encuentro para este jueves.

"Si no lo hubieran hecho, Nicolás estaba decidido a regresar a Chile y seguir sus entrenamientos acá antes de partir a Europa", dijo Manuel Massú.

El viñamarino retornará al circuito en el Masters Series de Montecarlo (parte el 16 de abril), donde si no corre la lista de inscritos debería jugar la fase clasificatoria, algo que no ha hecho en los últimos 43 meses de su carrera.
