Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Unfortunatly, Nico lost. But not without a great fight! The result 6-4 4-6 3-6 doesn't fully show it.
Anyways, Nico playing (once again) like an equal with those high ranked claycourters is what we hoped to see!He's fit, he gained confidence and I really believe he is able to crash top 50 anytime soon. Vamos!

Btw: did you see those muscles?q cuerpo

Well done Nico! Of course I'm disappointed at the same time, but I really, really like Nico so I'm happy. I hope he can revive his career now, maybe do well at RG?

I'm not going to Stuttgart, but I found out Nico's on the list for Rosmalen this year
And I go there almost every year, so I'll definitely try to go as much as I can this year I'm so happy I'll see Nico again
First and last time was in Amersfoort 2005, that's way too long ago

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Ok, well to deal with pics first, I don't have any . That's right, I went to Rome without a camera. I got lots of other pics from the friends I was with, but they didn't watch Nico's matches .

Ok, so on Saturday I watched Lapentti v Lorenzi. I can tell you, I was not a happy guy. 12 years I'd been waiting to see Nico and the first set he gave me was frankly terrible. The Italian crowd were pissing me off so much, but for each cheer for Lorenzi I cheered for Nico. I got some funny looks when i was shouting Vamos Nico but they didn't attack me.
Almost certainly because of me, the second set went much better. Not really that Nico was too good, Lorenzi was simply awful . So, Nico took that set 6-1 after losing the first 6-3 I think.
The third set was, unlike the rest of the match, actually pretty good, both players played better. Nico always looked more likely to win and in the end he did 7-5 in the 3rd.

Now, the next day I figured that Roger-Vasselin was a good opponent, in that he's not very good . Still, Nico would have to up his game. Well, Nico looked like the world number 6 again. He just owned him from start to finish. Roger-Vasselin on the other hand looked like the world number 8000, he was pitiful. Still, for this performance Nico deserves d. I'm so glad he showed me just how good he can be.

On Monday I was really upset cos Nico wasn't playing and I didn't think I'd get a ticket on Tuesday. I did though unfortunately, cos Nico was playing Volandri I couldn't see it as I didn't have stadium tickets. Basically I can't take any credit for that win and I don't even know how he played. BUT it does mean when i'm at a tournie where Nico's playing he is 3 out of 3. Can't be coincidence that he left the day I did

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

hihi, thanks for your report!Now I see it is obvious you're the win/lose factor, too bad for Nico that you had to leave early.Still, good you helped him advancing to the MD and then winning to Roger (Roger-Vasselin for a start)Btw: are you planning some more 'Nico cheering' this summer?

I wish. I won't be at any tournaments for a long time I'm afraid, not till next year at least (apart from a futures in Scotland).
I'll be cheering him on in spirit though, but then that doesn't always work.

Re: The official Nico Lapentti's cheering thread!

Thanks for your reports!

You're lucky Nico wins when you're around, hopefully I don't have the same effect on Nico as I have on one of my other faves. So far I've always seen Fred Hemmes lose Last year his tennisclub won the Dutch competition and the only match he lost, was the one I was a part of the audience
There was one match in all these years I was at and he won, but I couldn't stay untill the end, so that doesn't count

But don't worry for Rosmalen, Nico won the only match I saw of him
