Alonso - I love the thread title!!!

I don't care if it's an exhibition either - he can work on his game with no pressure.

VAMOS NICO ALE!

I never heard of Arsenov - I have heard of Dorsch but don't know anything about him.

If River Oaks is anything like the Houston tournament, results will be difficult to get.

Sparko - get ready! You and I will be calling down to Houston this time! Thank goodness for lots of cell minutes.

That's what I thought at first too. But if he goes deep, he wouldn't be able to qualify for MC, verdad?

Question: doesn't Nano Zuleta have connections with tennis people in Houston? Which may be why Nico plays in Houston now and again (which really is kind of odd for a SA clay court specialist to play there.) Or have I completely lost my mind and am totally remembering incorrectly? If so, please completely disregard this.

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

i heard some things about the Nano Zuletas and Houston`s connectiton, in the past when he was coach of Hermes Gamonal, Phillip Harboe and Adrian Garcia (some chilean players) reach an agree to make some practice in the same club when Houston made the TMC some years ago....

Nico will enter Monte-Carlo for sure, he's only 4 spots OUT, and many players always withdraw from that tournament at last minute, see Roddick, Blake, Hewitt and many more...

Thanks! Good, my memory hasn't gone.

I'll be very surprised if ARod and James don't drop out of MC. Probably El Pescado too.

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

the american players droping out from a MS in clay?!?! nooooooo that never has happened before (yeah it was my turn to be sarcastic )

well actually I don't know if it would be good or not if Nico plays in Houston the next week, 'cause our french spy is going to be in Monte Carlo the weekend before the tournament and I want that she could see Nico for me but again, let's wait to see what happens here

NicoFan you have a good memory but No1Rios memory is out of this world ... and thank God for your minutes in your cellphone

I was wondering about that Nicfan! No problem- but its good thing they don't know what they're in for at River Oaks or they'd change their phone number

(7)Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo (ESP) bye
Alex Kuznetsov (USA) vs Diego Hartfield (ARG)
(3)Robby Ginepri (USA) bye
Mariano Zabaleta (ARG) d. Paul Goldstein (USA) 6-4 6-1
(6)Juan Monaco (ARG) bye
Robert Kendrick (USA) vs (q)Dusan Vemic
Benedikt Dorsch (GER) d. Danila Arsenov (RUS) 6-4 4-0 ret.
(5)Nicolas Massu (CHI) bye
Albert Montanes (ESP) vs Amer Delic (USA)
(4)Benjamin Becker (GER) bye

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

because he mostly played futures and challengers. he qualified in wimbledon last year and lost in the first round against malisse.
at river oaks he also plays doubles with benjamin becker!
I don't think that nico will face any problems by beating him!
(knock on wood )
