What is wrong with that? I've been a fan of Ljubo and Almagro for a long time now

I couldn't stand and checked your album Now I have two things to say:
  1. Don't post the link here or do it with precautions, otherwise someone can have a heart attack.
  2. How could you keep all these pictures away from us for such a long time?!
Irina!! You sneaky thing!!!

Where did you find the link? From somewhere I'd posted it in the past??

and I haven't actually finished uploading them all yet There are more Nico ones to go in... I've got 2 cameras and I've only uploaded one lot so far, the photos from the other camera are in another folder

@ causing heart attacks
As for keeping them from you for such a long time... I like them to be as perfect as I can make them before showing them to people

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
it's always a great pleasure to read your summaries

Peta - i've yet to upload all the ao photos, but i suppose my excuse is that they aren't mine please post useful links everywhere, i know i've been forewarned...

There is nothing wrong with that, on the contrary, it's very nice But it's just quite unusual, those 3 are so different!

Yes, a sort of When you've been following Nicolas for quite a while, you become skilful in searches lol

Yeah, I guessed that there were not all the pictures. I remembered you told that there were some pictures you were especially proud of, and I couldn't spot such a special picture between those you uploaded first - all of them were equally great. Now with the newest uploads I see there are indeed a couple of especially fabulous shots

And this blue shirt

You're welcome But I wish Nico plays the way that requires more detailed reports, not just summaries

P.S. Maria, are you still alive?

Re: ~°~Nicolas Devilder~°~

Maria here... still alive But guess I won't be long if you post pics like those from Aussie Open in The Album My blood pressure doesn't like Nico's shirtless pics... I went to the doctor last week and she told me I still have high BP. And I don't drink coffee anymore. So what could it be?

Don't worry, I'm following the Devil's steps. Desperately waiting for one win

miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

i feel so left out of tennis these recent days, i can empathise with your tagline.

Will Nico ever get an easy draw at RG?
