NICO can beat anyone now. :fiery: He's ready to be back up at the top. :yeah:

3-2* on serve.

The other guy seems to be a bit more aggressive than Nico. I think that Nico will have to be more offensive here if he wants to win this. He's hanging like 10 feet behind the baseline. Move up a bit and force the play.

NicoFan
05-15-2008, 05:28 PM

He looked so cute in the interview... :hug:

Hair down and all... :woohoo:

Interesting what he said about Marrakech that he likes it because it has the same high altitude as Santiago. And that he likes playing in Africa...

Nico... :hug:

Nice time...

I'm nervous for our Nico already, but he's playing so well and seems so confident that I hope that he can do this.

VAMOS NICO! BUENA SUERTE!

YOU CAN DO IT! :fiery:

NicoFan
05-15-2008, 07:21 PM
With just the points that he's gotten for getting into the SFs, Nico s/b back up around 112 next week. Obviously if he beat Monfils, he'll be even higher.

I hope so too. But I think he has a good chance to get into the MD. He's fourth on the list and there are a bunch of players that may not play.

Looks like Nico's match is about to start-they are on court warming up.

Kick butt Nico!!! :armed: You can win this match!!! :fiery:

There's a bunch of guys who may drop out: Del Potro, Sebbie, Youzhny, Hewitt, etc. etc. I think Nico has a good chance to get into the MD.

I hope you're right but I'm a little afraid they wait the last time to withdraw :shrug:

I know...I think that guys who are like 98% sure of withdrawing should have the respect to the other players and just withdraw right away. That's always pissed me off even before Nico was in this situation.

Monfils is playing sooo far back. Nico should move up and take it to him a bit.

He's hanging tight, but Monfils is still serving well. :sad:

I keep waiting for Gael to do something stupid like he usually does, but hasn't happened yet. (And yes, I do like Gael, but he can be insane out there. :lol:)

NicoFan
05-16-2008, 04:03 PM
It's over.... :sad:

Gael broke.

Shoot, I thought Nico had a chance in this match, but he couldn't hold serve and Monfils is unbreakable. :shrug:

Still he's done well in the challengers and he'll move back up to about 112.

He needs to stay down in the challengers during June (forget grass season) and try to get back into the top 100 at least before the hardcourt season begins.

NicoFan
05-16-2008, 04:05 PM
And he should have a new coach by RG...that hopefully will help too. :yeah:

Another thing Nico's new coach has to work for...if he has a break point - and two at that - take advantage of it... :(

NicoFan
05-16-2008, 04:14 PM
Now it really is over.

Nico had a chance to come back...shit I hate it when he has bp's and doesn't convert.

Oh well - again good try.

But shows he's not ready to go back to the regular circuit still. :sad:

Couldn't make a dent in GAel's game and still mentally not strong when it comes to the big points.
