You were absolutely right:it's Lucho Horna again
Luis Horna PER
Nicolas Lapentti ECU

vs.
Michal Mertinak SVK
Petr Pala CZE

Alexander Peya AUT
Bjorn Phau GER
vs.
Paul Hanley AUS (4)
Kevin Ullyett ZIM (4)

Mertinak/Pala are r a pro doubles pair, will be tough-bt possible, then Hanley/Ullyet..Sorry guys, but imo it's impossible to beat them..
Still:Good luck Nico/Lucho!

Re: Nico in Australia! The Australian Open Thread

They lost to Mertinak/Pala, so now it's time to focus on cheering for Nico as much as we can coz the match that awaits him won't b easy..i was spying on Nalby's forum, they say his knee problems are gone and he feels steamin' ready to fight..Lucky espn spectators, rumours say they will broadcast this match for you[jealous]
Vamos Nico&Viva Ecuador!

Re: Nico in Australia! The Australian Open Thread

Nico lost to David in straight sets

Still, as he won the first round he will have gained several ranking points after not playing here last year so it was a good tournament for Nico.

Re: Nico in Australia! The Australian Open Thread

4-6 4-6 4-6... but it's Nalbandian, so the result isn't really disappointing[though secretly I was counting at least on a 5 setter]..important is, as you say, that he got through the first round&gathered some points, + we know he's in good shape, that's a good prognostic for upcoming events.

Re: Nico in Australia! The Australian Open Thread

Hmmm, I didn't really think Nico would win vs Nalby, but thought it could be better than straight sets. On the other hand it's true what Paul said, that Nico gained points for the rankings as last year he had the stupid hepatitis.

Vamos Nando! Come on Andy! A portuguese Vamos to André Sá e Marcelo Melo! Vamos Gastăo!Auf geht's Dustin! Vamos ChristianLindell!Vamos David! Pojd Tomáš! Davai Dolgo!
