I don't think Nico will be back in Europe this year. When I spoke to him the other night, he said he would be playing in South America for the remainder of the season - at least he said that before he got to the final in Palermo. I have a feeling though that he will follow through on his plans to stay on the clay for the last few weeks of the season and make a big run at the start of the next season - after all he has nothing to lose (literally - no points) because of his Hepatitis at the start of this year.
Thank You for this insight
That would be a sensible decision of him to take part in southamerican clay events for the rest of the year rather then coming back to Europe..but still, I wish I saw him in Bercy *dreaming*...
I think Nico really deserves his week off. When the new rankings list appears its going to prove that Nico has nearly halved his ranking in the last 2 weeks and lets hope he continues to move up the list in the coming weeks.
Yess, it's amazing his rank rises so high/fast! Jumping in two steps,from 111 to ~68th place...Still waiting for the official atp ranking update, they're delayed cause of postponed Mumbai final, but it should be somewhat close to this prediction..He's getting really close to the magic top50.Keep it up Nico
