Carlita - who is Enric Molina??

Carlita
07-13-2007, 03:46 PM
Carlita - who is Enric Molina??the sweetest ITF gold badge Umpire from Barcelona :hug:

He's such a lovely man. When we were in Barcelona he even gave us a website run by his friend, to find cheap and good accomodation :)

all can be found in here: Molina Madness (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=67139)

shame he's ITF though :sad: that means he's working at the grand slams & davis cup ties. He's at a few ATP tournaments a year. Always Bcn and Madrid :) and this year he was in Rotterdam which was nice :)

He's absolutely adorablehttp://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o276/MissWoessie/Gifs/tender.gif

07-13-2007, 03:52 PM
I will never confuse those 2 countries, I work with dutch guys so I totally know about that rivalry :lol:

is your Fernando going there? I also like to see your pics from him :p

NicoFan
07-13-2007, 04:05 PM
I know who that chair umpire is! I've seen him, and he is adorable. :yeah:

I also like the guy from Morocco - I can't remember his name. And the one from Argentina with the German name - I think it's like Steiner.

Carlita

is your Fernando going there? I also like to see your pics from him :pMy Fernando left Båstad 20 minutes ago to go to Stuttgart :sad: so no he's not here :sad: but on the other hand that's a good thing.....I'd die at work knowing both Carlos AND Fer are here :eek: and I'm stuck at work...

so register in the Verdasco gallery (http://verdasco-online.tommyrobredo.net/gallery/);) about 5600 pics of Fer ;)

Enric is lovely, so is Mohamed Lahyani and Carlos Bernardes. These guys are so funny!!!

07-13-2007, 04:12 PM
Carlos Bernardes is great :rolls:

if your Fernando and Carlos would be there if I were you I'd quit my job :haha: ... and I'm already registered in your gallery :yeah:

NicoFan
07-13-2007, 04:14 PM
Yup, that's his name - Mohamed Lahyani - he's hot. :yeah: :lol:

And I just looked up the ARgentine's name - it's Damian Steiner - he's a cutiepie. :hug:

Carlos Bernardes is funny. :lol: Kid - wasn't Bernardes the chair ump when the fans in Argentina where giving Nico such a hard time when he was playing Carlos a couple of years ago - I think he called the fans idiots. :lol:

VAMOS NICO!

Carlita

VAMOS NICO!Mo is from Sweden, married to a Spanish lady, and I believe he's living in Spain :)

Bernardes was so sweet in Barcelona. Gaby and I had bought a cuddly musicbox for Enric's daughter (who was born 2-3 weeks before the tournament) but when we wanted to give it to him, he wasn't there because lil :baby: was in hospital :awww: So Bernardes gave the present to Enric on Sunday and Enric emailed me to tell me that and thank me for the present. He included a picture of his lil chica :) with the musicbox behind her in her crib, so cute!!!

So I thanked Carlos in Rosmalen and he said if I didnt fix the weather there (rosmalen) he'd never do me any favours again :rolls: :haha:

I didn't know Lahyani was from Sweden - I thought he was from Morocco. :confused: I'm losing it. :eek: :lol:

And that's a funny story with Carlos. :lol: :lol: What a sweetie. :yeah:

kidnicky
07-13-2007, 04:44 PM
I guess Carlos was the one in that time in Argentina NicoFan :lol: ... he also was the umpire of one of Nico's match in Acapulco, it was funy 'cause he wanted to watch the match previous but the guy that was watching the door didn't let him in 'cause it was really crowded and there was a tennis player there laughing and saying to Bernardes "he doesn't know who you are right?" and I was laughing with both of them because poor Carlos couldn't enter to watch the match :haha:

Juliet
07-13-2007, 06:18 PM
Bernardes is so sweet!
He had a blog last year, in Portuguese, "Viajando com Carlos Bernardes" (travelling with Carlos Bernardes)! Really nice, almost everyday he would post something about the places he'd been to while travelling with the ATP. And he reminds me a little bit of the chief in grey's anatomy!

kidnicky
07-13-2007, 06:43 PM
you're right Juliet, he looks like the Chief in Grey's anatomy :rolls:

btw we miss you here :hug:

NicoFan
07-13-2007, 07:03 PM
Poor Carlos couldn't see the match. :hug: :lol:

And :wavey: Juliet - we do miss you!

kidnicky
07-13-2007, 07:36 PM
but he was laughing for that, he even said that he'll be the umpire for the next match but still he couldn't enter :rolls:

NicoFan
07-13-2007, 07:42 PM
Kid - I just saw your post on the other thread - I'm going to try to go see Harry Potter tonight too! :) If we can get in - my friend is going to go early and try to get them for us.

I heard that it's excellent. :yeah:

kidnicky
07-13-2007, 07:59 PM
some people say that it's great and some other that is not .. the same thing as always :lol:

I bought my tickets for tonight 2 weeks ago and I couldn't find for yesterday can you believe it??!?! :eek: so hopefully you'll be able to get tickets :yeah:

LOVELY
07-13-2007, 08:22 PM

And glad you like the title Lovely. :) :lol: Hope you get to see Nico lots and lots!!! :yeah:

we miss you too Juliet :hug: ... Lovely and Alx have a great time :yeah: ... two weeks with Nico damn! you're sooo lucky :o

OMG! are you f*cking kidding me with that draw?!?!?! is this a nightmare or some kind of karma ?!? :banghead: I can't believe this shit! ... If I were Nico I'd be retired already :p

ChinoRios4Ever
07-14-2007, 01:38 AM
same old shit :mad:

bye bye top 60 :wavey:

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 12:50 PM
It is a bad draw. :sad:

But Nico needs to step it up.

These guys that he plays aren't unbeatable. They lose all the time....and not just to Fed and Rafa.

He hasn't beaten a guy in the top 50 in I don't know how long. And obviously if he wants to maintain his ranking or move up, he's got to beat the top guys.

He's got the game to beat these guys. But not the head to beat them. Time for him to change that.

:shrug:

Sparko1030
07-14-2007, 05:17 PM
:awww: draw sucks, as usual. Still, I think Nicofan makes a good point. If Nico can get some confindence these draws wouldnt' seem quite so dismal-because there was a time not that long ago when Nico did beat top 50....

:bigwave: its late but have a great time Lovely and Alx!!!

:wavey: Juliet-nice to see you here again!

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 06:16 PM
I re-read my post...it sounds mean. :eek:

But I want our pumpkin to win. :lol:

But if I were him, like Kid said, I would have retired by now with all that bad luck that he has. :shrug:

kidnicky
07-14-2007, 06:38 PM
yes you sounded mean NicoFan :lol:

and you did have a good point but I said that if I were him I'd have retired already is because look at the other players with ranking similar to Nico's, look at their draws for godness sake!!! Roitman has a better draw than Nico and he is not even in the top 50, that's what pisses me off and I'm sure that that also bothers to Nico :o

I really hope that if he passes the first round (because we never can forget the first round first lol) that Davydenko has another bad day as he had against Monfils :tape:

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 07:10 PM
You can't be sweet and nice in sports....you have to be a little mean and determined to win at all costs. :lol:

It kills me to see the guys who are ranked above Nico...like Montanes, Ginepri :(, Starace, Fish for goodness sake. Nico's got so much more talent than his ranking indicates. :bigcry: And guys like El Pascado, Agustin, JI :mad:, and Robby being above Nico really freak me out because they are the laziest guys on the tour. :(

I still think that Nico should become a Mexican telenovela star - I could see him every night and we (and he) wouldn't have to deal with all this unfairness all the time. :lol:

kidnicky
07-14-2007, 07:21 PM
that's why I don't check the rankings anymore :lol: because everytime that I see all those lucky bastards above Nico I start cursing them and cursing the ATP :p

I love seeing Nico playing tennis but the telenovela thing is making more sense every week that passes by :lol: .... this is more that unfair, If I'd have been in Nico's place after seeing that Davydenko is in his half, I'd have destroyed the locker room and I'd have chased to the stupid one that made the draw from all around the tournament grounds :rolls: ... thank God that I'm not a pro tennis player :p

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 07:49 PM
I love seeing Nico playing tennis but the telenovela thing is making more sense every week that passes by :lol:

I can't believe my eyes. :p

Finally Kid is seeing the light. :lol: :lol:

Now we just have to convince Nico. ;) :lol:

kidnicky
07-14-2007, 07:54 PM
but it has to be a telenovela where he'd be a tennis player :rolls: ... or at least he should practice tennis like he practices now if you know what I mean :angel:

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 08:08 PM
but it has to be a telenovela where he'd be a tennis player :rolls: ... or at least he should practice tennis like he practices now if you know what I mean :angel:

Yes, so he keeps that great body of his. :lol: Another rule is that he has to appear shirtless in every episode of the telenovela. :yeah: :lol: :lol:

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 08:10 PM
I just saw that Seppi beat Andreev.

If Seppi can beat Andreev, than Nico certainly can beat Davydenko.

VAMOS NICO! KICK ASS! :fiery:

kidnicky
07-14-2007, 08:18 PM
I didn't want to say shirtless that's why I said "if you know what I mean" :lol:

yeah Seppi won ... Andreev has his bad days when nobody needs his bad days ... assh*le :rolls:

kidnicky
07-14-2007, 08:19 PM
our 007 spies are in Amersfoort already :yeah: they couldn't see nothing today so no news yet :p

NicoFan
07-14-2007, 09:23 PM
Nothing to see yet??? :sad:

Where is our Nico - he should be there practicing. :sad:

Hopefully he'll be around tomorrow.

kidnicky
07-15-2007, 04:27 AM
they didn't see him practicing 'cause it was already late when they arrived to the tournament grounds, no matches and no practices when they arrived, but guess what? Nico is already there ;)

Our 007 spies saw him having dinner tonight! .. oh they're soo lucky :awww:

TommyB.
07-15-2007, 10:12 AM
I hope our 007 spies will eliminate Davydenko. :p

07-15-2007, 08:01 PM
why why why on monday why?!?!?! :mad: ... this dutches :o

anyway let's focus on the first round so

VAMOOOS NICOO KICK BUTT TOMORROW!!! :fiery:

Tommy, I'll send an encoded message to our 007's to eliminate Davydenko :devil:

yes Fergie OMG the draw :tape: :shout:

kidnicky
07-15-2007, 08:02 PM
I thought that I was only one hour behind Chile, so if I'm correct the match will be at noon my time and 1 pm for Chile and NicoFan :shrug:

NicoFan
07-15-2007, 08:09 PM
Chile time is constantly changing. :lol: You can't go by that.

So it should be noon your time Kid. :)

kidnicky
07-15-2007, 08:22 PM
yes of course that I don't get confused with the Dutchland time and my time, due to my job that's the only world time difference that I'm sure about :lol:

and Chile changes time always as the same time as us so that's why I was wondering :p

TommyB.
07-15-2007, 08:25 PM
Monday but not a bad time for me, I hope there's a livestream.

Please send this message Kid, I will see a lucky loser instead of Davy.:devil:

VAMOS NICO!!

kidnicky
07-15-2007, 08:37 PM

Carlita
07-16-2007, 10:16 AM
:wavey: I saw Nico 4 times yesterday :lol: 3x practice and once at the exhibition. I took pics everywhere, except the last practice because I had spend the last bit of battery on Mister Zabaleta :inlove: :devil:

Got some lovely smiling Nico pics :) will try to post them tonight :)

NicoFan
07-16-2007, 12:13 PM
Yeay! Reports and pictures from spies!!! :woohoo:

I love him in black! :yeah: :)

But question for Carlita - I can't tell from the picture. At Wimbledon, I was very upset to see Nico with a full beard. :( :lol: I just got used to the goatee after 3 years but I'll never get used to a full beard.

So was he clean shaven there in Amersfooort??? :lol:

Carlita

NicoFan :haha: I've already forgotten about the beard but aparently you haven't :lol: don't worry it seems that he is back to the normal goatee ;)

Carlita
07-16-2007, 02:36 PM
I'll do my best to post them all tonight ;)

He looked like he had a lot of fun playing with the "older" guys/former champions. In the interview he gave he said he was honoured to be on the court with them. It was very nice to see him smiling on court ;)

kidnicky
07-16-2007, 02:38 PM
don't worry Carlita, we'd wait even if you're only able to post 2 pics :p

oh yes, the best thing is to see him smiling ... he is so cute :hearts:

NicoFan
07-16-2007, 05:50 PM
Oh that was sweet of him to say that he was honored to play with the older guys. :)

And thanks again Carlita! :hug:

Kid - I hope you are right and it is only the goatee.

I'm getting nervous for Nico's match - 10 more minutes.

kidnicky
07-16-2007, 06:45 PM
they're stupid that's why they're are :o .... they have no match on all the courts like for 1 hour or more and why they didn't schedule the matches earlier if they're seeing the weather conditions :ras:

Sparko1030

Sluiter

Sluiter could you be soooo kind to give us the link for the livestream please :p

Haha, of course, no problem:

http://www.dutchopentennis.nl/streaminglogin.php

There is only a Dutch version.

Click on 'registreren' (in Engelish: register, but as I said: there is only a Dutch version).

Than you get a list, in Dutch! I will translate it for you:

First:
Nickname...
Password...
E-mail...

Than:
Firstname only a 'p' (for example) is enough, your real name is not important
Last name... not important too, fill in a 'p' for example
Adress.. not important, fill in a 'p'
Zipcode. not important, fill it in like this: 3333BD
Town: not important..
Telephone number: not important...
Mobile phno: not important..

Clink on 'registreren' and you will receive a email, click on that link and you can watch :)

Note:
Maybe foreigners can't watch on the livestream, but you can try it.

Sorry for my bad Engelish, but if you don't understand it: ask!

Good luck!

That sucks, I'm sorry.

No, no I didn't try, but I'm pretty sure that's impossible there's a fink who can tell from which country you come even if you don't give any informations :rolleyes:
Anyway, if someone can access to it, tell us.
Whatever, that's nice to you sluiter ;)

No, no I didn't try, but I'm pretty sure that's impossible there's a fink who can tell from which country you come even if you don't give any informations :rolleyes:


Yes, I was afraid for that too, as you can see.

But wat I saw today from Nicolas was pretty good. Steady baseline play, a view good volleys and fabolous dropshots.

He won 100% on his first service and won his servicegames without any problems. De Bakker don't get any control on his second service. The only reason De Bakker is in the first set is his serve. He is serving good too.

Good match :), bad weather :(

kidnicky
07-16-2007, 08:05 PM
:haha: I'm a :devil: I could register :banana:

I hate these matches. Should be a slam dunk for Nico, and he's losing. Here we are worried about Davydenko, and he can't get by De Bakker. :rolleyes:

Nico.... :hug:

Come on FIGHT! :fiery:

Nico's serve was at like 83% when the match was suspended yesterday and is down to 61% now. :awww:

If Nico loses this match, we all have to brainstorm to find him another career. De Bakker is 396th in the world and hasn't won a regular ATP match this year.

Nico... :hug: I have no words... :shrug: Love him, but something has been desperately wrong for a long time, and it's not getting better.

De Bakker GSM.

:bigcry:

Nico... :bigcry:

He can't win anymore. When he loses to a guy like De Bakker, can't beat anyone near the top, can't win on his favorite surface, can't win during his favorite time of the year, refuses to try on hardcourts anymore....it's time to think of a new career.

Love him so much :hug: but the writing is on the wall. :shrug:

And if I feel this bad for him, I can imagine how miserable he must feel.

that's it.....I just kinda in shock. This is usually a great tournament for Nico and the start of his "winning July"....I'm just kinda numb right now.

Love ya Nico, but what's going on? Do you just want to retire and be done with the tour? Just hanging on for a another season or two with no real fire? I don't know, I don't want to be mean but this is depressing....

That's what I felt he was doing last summer - no fire, no desire. I thought he had gotten it back a little, but now I think he really has had enough.

He shouldn't keep playing if he isn't going to give it 100%.

:shrug:

Because losing to De Bakker shows that he doesn't really care about winning all that much any more. And there are too many guys around him that do want desperately to win ... so he's just going to go from tournament to touranment losing in the first and second round. Why bother at that point?

This loss btw puts him out of the top 60 - maybe lower.

If he wants to salvage something out of this season ... and the "if" is big because I don't think he really has the hunger to do well anymore ... then he needs to drop out of Sopot, and get to the US and play some challengers on hardcourt to get ready for New Haven and the US Open.

Or just go home and rethink whether he wants to play or not.

Here I was all desperate because like I said to Sparko, my brilliant bad luck played with me again and I'm with no computer 'cause now it got a virus and I couldn't follow the match :sad:

I don't even know what to say, I'm about to cry and I can't do it for being at work, I just can't believe it ... and in front of a dutch guy, this is pure shit :shout:

Too much up and downs during his matches, they are close but Nico can't win the big points. There's no self-confidence.

But what can help him? :shrug:

this day really seems like a Monday ... it sucks! almost all the clay courters had a terrible day today, Almagro, Acasuso, Cañas all of them are gone in first round against low ranking players

is this freaking day over?!?!?! :bigcry:

But what can help him? :shrug:

I don't know. :shrug:

Nico works hard. He's fit.

He's got a great coach.

Last year he seemed to lose his hunger and desire for the game. But this year it seems like it was back. But maybe not with a loss like this.

Just don't know. :shrug:
