Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Did you guys see the draw?Nico vs Andy Murray in the first round
Although who knows in what shape Murray is atm, maybe he's rusty&not quite ready to compete yet..?[damn, counting on opponent's weakness ain't the right attitude ]..Positive thing is that tv will most probably cover this match, so we have the chance to see Nico play.
Do your best Nicolas&good luck!
PS: He's playing doubles with Calleri again, they face Garcia/Prieto...I wish I could be there to watch it, love em' all actually! Too bad Nico/Agustin have a relatively small chance against a pro-doubles pair..ehh..but maybe I'm wrong, tennis can be so unpredictable

Good luck Nico! With all of us cheering in front of the tv it has to work
All the positive energy we can send through a cable has to count for something

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Andy Murray OUT!Will be replaced by Kevin Kim[USA]. C'mon Nico, you lucky thing!You have a great chance to advance to round #2! Now that I think about it..maybe injured Murray would have been an easier pray..?
Bad news is that the match is at court nr18 , which means they won't show it...

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Maybe Murray would be better after all, for Nico because he isn't at his best and for us because of the tv coverage
But we'll just see Nico's 2nd round match on tv

Really?Lucky you! Maybe you could record it[or take some stills]?
He might not be playing today though,it's probable they'll only let Chela/Becker finish.No schedule for tomorrow realesed yet..

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Nico played really well.

Had a whistle stop tour of Wimbledon earlier (worked for 2 hours before leaving the office) and then went straight back as soon as match was over).

Got some great pics (and if any of you have been on NL.com lately you will have seen I got some great pics at Nottingham too).

I managed to have a quick word with Nico afterwards to thank him for leaving me a ticket (he included one for tomorow too... so am presuming he was hopeful of winning! - jammy dodger..!) and he thanked me for supporting him. My LOUD cheering seemed to put the other little git off towards the end..

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

That's great, hope you'll have a good time tomorrow&cheer for Nico as successfully as you did today!I did some serious cheering as well(+casted a few voodoo spells)in front of my lappy. I was following the livescores, but with no match stats given I had to guess what's happening all the time.. so it turned out to be rather a nerve-racking xperience Now I see there was no use for that, as he seemed to be quite confident of winning that one..
Can't wait to see your Wimby pictures!
Btw:Are those Nottingham pix you mentioned added to the gallery at NL.com..?If so,I'm affraid I can't confirm their greatness as..I simply cannot open this page[The requested URL /galeria.htm was not found on this server.]..hope it's only a temporary thing.
Thanks for posting, waiting for more to come!
Oh&plz send our kisses to Nicolas

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

anybody's witnessed this match?judgin by the result is was rather a poor performance by our man..I'm far from saying Tsonga is a feeble grass player, but to overwhelm Nico like that? 6-4 6-2 6-3...in straight sets..how disappointing
Both Nico and Agustin are out of singles now, plenty of time to focus on their doubles.Good luck xicos!
