:help:

NicoFan
04-16-2008, 08:12 PM
pathetic

:help:

It is pathetic.

We're going to be told that we're being mean, but really, over and over again the same shit.

Can't break, up 40-0 and can't hold, can't serve out a set.

It is totally and completely pathetic. :rolleyes:

kidnicky
04-16-2008, 08:26 PM
I don't know if my sb is frozen or what but I keep seeing the 40-Adv for Querrey and the 2-0 on the score :lol:

Anyway I'm going to have lunch, I better find good news when I come back Nico :fiery:

VAMOOOS CARAJO!!! :fiery:

Sparko1030
04-16-2008, 08:27 PM
:awww: how could he loose that first set :sad: This is just so depressing....

Well, he's up a break in the 2nd at least-keep your lead this time Nico.

NicoFan
04-16-2008, 08:31 PM
And yet again, he fails to hold serve, and we're back on serve 2-2.

Nico... :hug:

He's going to end up losing this...another bad loss against someone he should kill. Sam is good on hardcourts...SUCKS on clay. :shrug:

It's hard to have faith in someone who has absolutely no faith in themselves. And doesn't have the ummmph anymore to get the win.

bp for Nico....do it Nico!!!

NicoFan

Football fans says that they will follow their team in the good and in the bad.

Chileans tennis fans are like football soccer fans too. :cool:

Also, Chile never won a single title in football, and we are they best fans of Southamerica, we always full the stadium when the national team plays at home and the 70% of the time we lose. :shrug:

Marcos takes the first set. :rolleyes:

Nico needs to see what Marcos has been doing...he's been playing challengers and actually trying at them and winning. No surprise that he's beating Nico here. The only surprise is that it is as close as it is.

Hopefully Nico can turn it around, and I'll see a W when I get home.

:wavey:

I do support him in hard times or I wouldn't be here now. My post was not negative, just realistic. If we can't be honest on this forum without getting scolded everytime we post something someone else decides isn't positive enough,then that is pretty sad.

Don't worry Sparko, everybody that has followed Nicolas so long and had suffered with him through the good and bad times feels this way after matches like this, because we're desperate to see him in the top again and because we know that he also suffers but he is not doing enough changes to get the results that all of us expect and desire for him :awww: ... and I guess that we can't be any more positives than what we already are by being supporting him week after week when we believe that a new tournament could bring us the joy to our crazy and fanatic lives :silly: :p

We have shown support for Nico. We're not criticizing you for saying to be positive, but I know for myself (and can say the same for others here) that we've been Nico's biggest cheerleaders, but after awhile, he doesn't make the changes and we just can't be positive anymore. I was positive for two years. And now I just can't be positive any longer. :shrug: Believe me, I would love to see something to be positive about. He does work hard, but sometimes hard work isn't enough...and if you aren't working on the right things, it isn't doing you any good. You have to work on the right things.

Anyway. :hug: for Nico, and just praying that he'll eventually start to make some changes.
