He's spending a lot of time in Italy isn't he? :rolls:

Can't blame him for that-if I were him I would play every tournament there (no I have never been to Italy, but who needs to have been there to know it must be close to paradise :lol: )

Have fun in Genova and rack up more wins Nico!!!! :rocker:

I'm back from Genova :) I couldn't stay longer so I only saw Nico's first round against Zemlja.
This match was a very difficult one because the slovenian played great especially in the first set.
But Nico fought hard :yeah:
He stayed focus even after the loss of the first set.
He had no luck with the net which seemed to be Slovenian...:rolleyes: And he also had no luck with lines people...Lines people had a problem of glasses or I don't know but they never saw when Zemlja shots were out and Nico had to call the umpire several times during the match...And each time he was right ;)
Zemlja also played a lot on Nico's backhand but Nico won on that little game :p
The match point was amazing with a long serie of exchanges which seemed to never ended but finally Nico has the last word :) It was an exhausting match point for the players and also for my nerves :tape:
