Re: ~°~Nicolas Devilder~°~

Nice to see Nico in action again!

He won 6-2, 6-3 over Justin Gimelstob and will face either Sam Querrey or Tommy Haas in the next round

Good luck!

Re: ~°~Nicolas Devilder~°~

I didn't expect him to win against Hass to be honest ! Hope he's able to do well in Bermuda though ! Allez!

lol yeah this week is pretty mickey mouse I have to say!!

I also hope Nico can get out of the Challengers soon...I guess it's good he's mixing them with other tournaments and trying to qualify for the bigger ones..if he can get some extra ranking points at the Challengers then that's good for him too

Re: ~°~Nicolas Devilder~°~

Sure, it'll be cool if he could start playing bigger tournies but for the moment I just hope he can gather some more points too...especially after seeing he had dropped to no. 105 on the ATP list ...

Do you have any idea when this picture was taken?

The second round of Houston is not a bad result, but well, he could take at least a set from Haas. According the statistics of both matches Nicolas had heaps of break points but won just a few of them. And in that second round match both players had an equal number of BPs, five, but you know the result. A little bit nervous game is in the air, may suppose Haas won so easily just because of his experience.

So the lack of experience of the highest level matches is the main minus of Challengers I think. As for the rest, I see nothing bad that he prefers playing at that circle, and as Emily said that's a rather good stategy of mixing challengers with some bigger tournaments. But "getting too good for challengers" is a really nice wish

Normally he's dropped so much because he had to miss Monza Challenger he won last year, so he couldn't defend his points and so on. But do hope he'll be back to the Top 100 very soon and then will also come to rewrite his highest ranking which was 81st position.

Bermuda draw is out and seems to be quite fine for Nico. Would love to see him going farer than usually this year

I don't know about the "drinking-picture" but I belive the other pictures are from 2006! !!!

Aww well, I'm sure he'll succeed in getting into the top 100 again soon !!!
