It seems that nobody wanted Nico to play in my town...Anyway I decided to create my Bercy thread to cheer Nico ...:angel:

so Vamos Nico in Paris Bercy :bounce: Be the fighter you used to be and kick some butts :boxing:

Shoot...Lovely got here before me which means that I can't have another "I told you so..." thread.

:haha:

VAMOS NICO! (Even though I think he should be in South America right now. :tape: )

Maybe playing in your town will bring him luck Lovely :yeah:


I'm not asking you to win the title Nico, just win some matches please. :)

He should be in South America and I should be with him but life isn't fair :angel: :lol:

Vamoos Nico!!

He should be in South America and I should be with him but life isn't fair :angel: :lol:

Vamoos Nico!!

True.

Poor Kid...

:hug:

He's in Europe all the time (and his fans there see him all the time). It would have been nice if you could have seen him for a change.

Life isn't fair. :sad:

Besides the fact that it wasn't a good move on his part.

Don't worry :hug: the next year he better reward me all this misery :o :rolls: .... are you reading Nico!!! you better reward me!!! :angel: :lol:

10-25-2007, 09:27 PM
I know I could sound selfish because I'm the only one who is happy to see him play the quallies :o

I'm sorry he didn't decide to do what you all wanted him to ...But you know he's a big boy, he doesn't need our advice ;)

Nico's draw:

(12) Nicolas Massu (CHI) vs. Edouard Roger-Vasselin (FRA)
(2) Juan-Martin del Potro (ARG) vs. Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP)

I don't know...but there's a chance to reach the MD.

NicoFan
10-26-2007, 08:58 PM
Well Roger-Vallelin (never heard of him) may be doable, and we can hope that JMDP retires as he usually does every other match (I guess he has physical problems as usual...I think wrist? Not sure).

LOVELY
10-26-2007, 09:07 PM
Nico against a Frenchie :unsure: Well..I think Alx and I will be the only ones to cheer for Nico :lol:
Yes JM has a wrist problem...I like him a lot and I am a bit sad JM has to play against Nico...:sad:

NicoFan
10-26-2007, 09:25 PM
Nico plays third on Court 1 - matches start at 10:00 a.m. Paris time. (For me Nico's match will be around 7-8 a.m.)

VAMOS NICO!

LOVELY
10-26-2007, 10:34 PM
Alx and I will be in Bercy to cheer Nico for you all :D
And if Nico reaches the main draw then Brahna and I will cheer Nico again :cool:
See ya next week :wavey:

10-27-2007, 03:15 AM
I know Roger Vassellin since I've played some Challengers this year on TT but I better shut up about my possible comments about him :scared: ... let's hope for the best :yeah:

JM retiring?!?! naaah! that never happens :rolls:

Alx, Brahna and Lovely have a nice time on Bercy and cheer Nico for all of us :hug:

It's winter time in Europe...we set the clock back last night. ;)

*5-5

NicoFan

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh....gracias Tommy for the info.

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 11:57 AM
Nico is making me so nervous...he's having trouble on his serve every game.

COME ON NICO FIGHT!

TommyB.
10-28-2007, 12:02 PM
important game :scared:

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:05 PM
Phew...he held on to his serve.

Now JMDP to serve to stay in the match.

JM has been cruising easily through his serves though. :sad:

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:06 PM
Omg Bp - Mp!

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:07 PM
No... :sad:

deuce...

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:08 PM

TommyB.
10-28-2007, 12:08 PM
mp and a big serve maybe. :(

another TB...

TommyB.
10-28-2007, 12:14 PM
Damn :(

We need a third set.

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:16 PM
JMDP took the second set. :sad:

JMDP retired in his last tournament. Amazing how a player can retire one tournament with physical problems and then be playing great the next. :lol:

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:44 PM
Nico is hanging in there.

I thought he had a chance on JMDP's last service game but he couldn't do it. :sad:

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:45 PM
20 aces for JMDP.

Is JMDP serving that well or is Nico returning poorly?

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 12:56 PM
It's over.

6-7, 7-6, 6-3 for JMDP.

:sad:

Oh well...at least he tried.

Poor decision to go to Paris-Bercy, but as I've been told, he's a big boy and can make his own decisions. :rolleyes:

Let's hope this big boy can make some good decisions for 2008. Or we'll see a repeat performance of 2007 in 2008. :(

Sparko1030
10-28-2007, 01:11 PM
:awww: Decent effort but alas.....Well, time to get some rest and relaxation Nico. :hug:

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 01:18 PM
Rest and relaxation??? He barely played any matches in the last 6 months. :lol: He needs to work and get ready for 2008. And GET A NEW ... AND GOOD ... COACH. :angel:

People on GM are saying Nico could still get in as a LL.

We'll see.

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 01:24 PM
I just read Rosie's post about the match on GM.

While we aren't the best of friends here on GM :angel:, she does know tennis and I trust her opinion about what goes on on court. She posted that Nico seemed to lose concentration in the end - didn't seem to believe that he could actually win the match.

Which is why I wanted him to play on the Petrobras Tour. He could have gotten his confidence back up...remembered what it is like to fight and actually win a match.

This isn't doing him any good to keep playing and losing over and over and over again.

Fergie
10-28-2007, 02:32 PM
The same history again :rolleyes:

See u the next year Nico :hug:

:lol: Well, you got me there Nicofan, he has had very little match time. From all reports he has been practicing a lot though and most likely thinking too much about his loosing streak. Some time off to clear his mind and just enjoy life without any pressure may be good for him. :shrug:


If he can get in a s LL that would be nice, but I 'm not going to get too excited yet :lol:

I'm not going to get excited either. To be honest, it's probably a waste of time.

You're right...he does need some time off to clear his mind.

But he should have done that during this Fall season though. If he takes too much time off now during the offseason to clear his mind, he's not going to be ready for the 2008 season. :shrug: And there we go again...another sucky season.

He's got to rebuild his team. Takes time to find a new coach...and it especially takes time to find a GOOD new coach. And Papa Massu's track record of getting coaches is poor...(Pato :tape:) so Nico has to figure this one out this time.

EDIT: Kid is right...it's a "moo" point to talk about this. Nico won't make any changes. It will be the same 'ol same 'ol next year. :bigcry: He doesn't seem to care enough to make sacrifices so why talk about it. :shrug: :sad: :sad:

same old shit all season long :awww:

take a loooooooooooooooong vacation Nico

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 07:21 PM
Is it too late for Nico to get into the last 2 Petrobras tour events...I think there are two left in Uraguay and Argentina?

TommyB.
10-28-2007, 07:42 PM
A typical match of the whole season...2 or 3 hours for nothing. :sad:

2008 - a new year and a new chance.

kidnicky
10-28-2007, 08:51 PM
yes why keep talking about it :shrug:

is this season finally over?!?! pleaseeee no more suffering please!!! :bigcry:

NicoFan
10-28-2007, 08:55 PM
I know...it's worthless because he never makes any changes. :shrug:

I would say we can just follow him and look at his cute face, but since he refuses to leave Europe, I never get to see his cute face. :rolleyes: And I'm tired of following a live ticker...the excitement of watching numbers move is just too much at times. ;) :lol:

So whatever...when he decides to come to the U.S. for his 2 tournaments a year that I can see, I'll follow him then.

Kid - look at your email. Though I'm not that excited about it - won't be that much to report. :shrug:

kidnicky
10-28-2007, 09:01 PM
I saw your email yesterday but didn't have the time to reply to you or check the link, I'll do it later since I'm not at home either right now :p .. and I'll let you know more also about that subjetc :p

who knows for how much I'll have the strenght to follow that kind of exciting live tickers :rolleyes: :lol:

:wavey: Back from Paris !
Nico played well and fought hard !Two really good matches even if he lost against JMDP.He just lost his confidence in the last games I would say...and JM was almost unbreakable :o
But Nico's fighting spirit is back ;)

Sparko1030
10-30-2007, 02:45 AM
:wavey: Thanks for your report Lovely! Its good to know he played well and his fighting spirit is returning. I hope his confidence will catch up soon. :yeah:

I also hope you had a good time. :)

saturday match report :
Roger-Vasselin served and returned well and Nico played well. That was not easy, there was a big big atmosphere, the audience were cheering a lot for Roger-Vasselin (except Lovely, I and 2 Chileans :p)

sunday match report : nothing to add to Lovely report. Big serves of JM, his serve was almost impossible to return most of time. Nico played well unless he made a few UEs in the 3rd set (maybe a little of fatigue ?). Nico was very motivated and he improved his game a lot since I saw him in Amersfoort

Fashion report :
Nico played with a sleaveless shirt :drool:

Sparko1030
10-30-2007, 01:27 PM
