Bobby, you rock
This photo of smiling Nico surely made my day! Am I right to assume he was practising with Paulo?
And since I'm writing this post anyway, I'll make another short review of Nico's latest results.
After the AO Nicolas went on his traditional South American tour where he won a single match against a top 300 Brazilian player and lost 4 other matches. But each time it was really close, just too many missed BP opportunities, and in general a bad luck in crucial moments
Last week he lost in the 1st round of IW to Nieminen, and again it was a really tight match. The highlight surely was the last game when Jarkko was leading 7-6 5-1 and 40-0 (= 3 match balls), and then Nico won 4 next points. Then Jarkko tried to change situation, had some 3 more MPs, and finally took the game and the match. Anyway a great fight from Nico
In conclusion I can add that despite all the losses Nicolas keeps his ranking around #62
The next step is Sunrise, the draw is not out yet, but hopefully it won't be too bad so Nicolas will have an opportunity for a great come back
