I just went on to the Madrid site, and it doesn't say when the qualifying draw (or main draw) will come out.

I thought the qualifying draw might come out today, but nothing so far. :shrug:

Vinnay's match is over so Nico should be starting shortly.

I was going to follow it, but I just can't. He just has to win, and I'll have a heart attack following it if he starts to lose. :eek:

I'm going to run errands. Hopefully he'll be winning when I get back.

TommyB.

Nico leads h2h with Koubek 2-0 but their matches were on clay and it was back when Nico was hot and Koubek was not. Now Koubek is going through a hot streak.

Hopefully Nico can win tomorrow. :yeah: :fiery:

NicoFan
10-13-2007, 02:49 PM
I was not scared at all...Nico couldn't lose this match ... No way :lol:

That's what I said about a couple of his matches this summer...and he lost. :eek: Remember that nobody he lost to that was 400+ in the world?

So I don't think any match is a slam dunk anymore.

LOVELY
10-13-2007, 02:56 PM
I've seen him play this summer and he was not the same as he is now...
In Metz the old fighting Nico was back and that's the reason why I was confident today ;) I knew he would kick this kid's butt ;)

Well in re-thinking it, maybe it's not so charming. :haha:

Following his matches are hard on the heart. :eek: His and ours. :lol:

kidnicky
10-13-2007, 06:37 PM
yes of course, it was so weird to find a 61 61 today :rolls: ... it is not that charming at all to have every match to 3 sets :scared: :silly:

yes of course, it was so weird to find a 61 61 today :rolls: ... it is not that charming at all to have every match to 3 sets :scared: :silly:

It would be so nice if he could have these easy wins more often. It will never happen, but one can hope. :lol: :lol: Nico seems to love doing things the hard way... :angel: :lol:

Koubek is such an arrogant ass for someone who isn't ranked very high.

I really want Nico to somehow figure out how to beat him.

LOVELY

No chance so far. :sad:

But Koubek is a big choker sometimes, hopefully today too.

6-1 :(

COME ON NICO - FIGHT! :fiery:

NicoFan
10-14-2007, 02:21 PM
He doesn't need Koubek to choke - he needs to figure out Koubek's game and take it to him.

Too much of this waiting for the other guy to play badly - Nico has to play well and just do it!

NicoFan
10-14-2007, 02:24 PM
A better start - 1-0. :yeah:

NicoFan
10-14-2007, 02:32 PM
It's over.

Nice that he could beat an unranked player but he's got to be able to beat the Koubek's of the world.

Time to go home and figure out the strategy for next year.

We'll see how committed he is to resurrecting his career by the changes he makes during the offseason.

If Nico sticks with Pato and Nano, it will be another long agonizing season for him and us with him probably dropping out of the top 100.

But if he makes some changes, we'll know that he wants to return to the top 50.

Of course, this is all up to him...a lot of these losses have nothing to do with his coach...it's all in his head out on court (i.e. the Ginepri loss in NH).

LOVELY
10-14-2007, 02:35 PM

Well, it really is over now.

A sad effort by our Nico.

:sad:

Hopefully he'll do something in St. Petersburg.

Though I still think he needs to either call it a day for this season or go play some challengers.

This strategy ain't working.

TommyB.

50 min. :help:

It's definitely time for the off-season.

This is a totally embarrassing loss.

I don't know what it's going to take to wake Nico up to see that he needs to make some big changes.

:shrug:

It's getting ridiculous, this lack of strategy, lack of direction, doing the same 'ol same 'ol shit that doesn't work.

He needs to play challengers, he needs to gain confidence before the next season and to make REAL changes if he wants to come bac, I'm tired of this and I'm sure he is tired of this so hopefully a new year will bring new hopes :shrug:
