Could be a tough first round. :shrug:

But Nico can do it. :yeah:

Not the easiest considering the field, but Nico has been playing well lately so I am confident he can beat Mello.


Best of Luck Nico!!! :hatoff: Keep winning and moving up in rank!!! You can do it!!! :fiery:

VAMOOOOOOS!!!

It's a very good (and tough) draw imo. :lol:

Good: No argies in Nico's half. :yeah:
Tough: There are all brazilians in Nico's half. :haha: Those "brazucas" are very tough to beat at Brazil, and Mello is tricky.

:scared:

Obrigado Lynn ;)

but it is asking for a password and a username :confused: I am as puzzled as you :shrug:

VAAAAAAAAAAAAMOS NICO :D Time to shine

NicoFan
09-29-2008, 11:47 PM
Mine doesn't ask for a password and username - just that I have to click on a plug in. Someone in the Aracaju thread said it's just a media player plug in, but I'm still scared to click on it - I never trust these things. :eek:

NicoFan
09-30-2008, 12:17 AM
I finally clicked on the plug in - seems okay so far. :scared:

REally tiny screen but better than nothing.

Nico was down a break, but broke back...

Now 5-4* Nico. :yeah:

NicoFan
09-30-2008, 12:26 AM

Nico's match should start shortly.

Unfortunately, the live streaming went black near the end of the previous match. :sad:

Hopefully it will be back but at least the live ticker is still working.

I'm teaching late classes today so I'll miss the match. :sad:

Good luck to NICO!!! :fiery:

Sparko1030
10-02-2008, 02:16 PM
I may be gone too. I have to admit, I forgot last night-that time of day is busy around here and there is always a kid on the computer so his match slipped my mind until later. :o :awww: Of course he has been winning without me following his matches so perhaps I should keep it that way :lol:


Kick butt tonight Nico!!! :fiery:

VAMOOOOOOOS!!!

NicoFan
10-02-2008, 11:28 PM
Nico is losing to #321 in the world. :eek:

Mama mia.... :lol:

NicoFan
10-02-2008, 11:48 PM
Wow...this goes down as one of the worst losses of his careers. A challenger, and loses to a guy who is ranked 321 in the world.

6-2, 2-6, 6-2

Sad. :sad:

Gets worse and worse as the weeks go by.

:shrug:

And there goes top 100 for another week.

Nico... :hug: Sad what has happened to his once strong career. :sad:

NicoFan

I'm tired of talking about why he can't win these slam dunk matches. Has been going on 2-3 years now.

Whatever... :shrug:

NicoFan
10-03-2008, 12:55 AM
Florianapolis up next...maybe he can do something there. :shrug:

10-03-2008, 02:49 AM
Nicolas for the love of God :banghead: I had to stop following it after the 2nd set but I thought he'd pull it off but it didn't happen again :o

Nicolas for the love of God :banghead: I had to stop following it after the 2nd set but I thought he'd pull it off but it didn't happen again :o

:lol:

I got home just when he was turning it around in the 2nd so I thought he had it at that point. But he seemed to give up once he was broken in the 3rd set. :sad: He just seemed to lack fight and spark - saw it in the other match too.

People here have insisted that he's changed, but from what I saw this week, nothing is different from what has been happening the last couple of years. :shrug:

TommyB.
10-03-2008, 01:21 PM
Well I hope he can gain some points in the last Challengers of the year.

And then he has to think about his singles career during the off-season. Maybe the last chance, he's getting older and I won't see him losing at small Challenger week after week. :sad:

tennhack226
10-04-2008, 02:30 AM
I hope Florianapolis has live-streaming as well as the others. It was good to be able to see him play in Arajuca even if he looked tired.
Thanks Lovely for all the links.

kidnicky
10-04-2008, 02:39 AM
yeah I don't think he has changed that much actually, he's still driving us crazy :retard: :lol:

NicoFan
10-04-2008, 11:43 AM
Florianopolis doesn't even have a web site. At least not one that I can find. And the challenger thread doesn't have one posted either.

So we probably won't get live streaming again until next week when he's at another Copa Petrabras tournament.

NicoFan
10-04-2008, 11:49 AM
And then he has to think about his singles career during the off-season.

Agreed, but I doubt it will happen. I've been saying that for months...well over a year.

He just keeps saying that he has to continue to work hard and the results will come.

Unfortunately, yes, he does have to work hard, but he's got to make big changes as well, and he completely refuses to do that. Refuses. Why is anyone's quess, but he hasn't done anything big for three years despite people like Rios telling that he has to make changes. I doubt he'll start now. :shrug:

And since he won't, I'm afraid those of us who follow him still will have to watch loss after loss in singles in these challengers until he decides he has enough. I doubt he'll even do what many others have done before him and go the doubles circuit on the regular tour.

NicoFan
10-04-2008, 09:58 PM
Nico drew Daniel Silva in the first round.

And if he gets that far, he might meet Paul in the QFs.

Once someone types up the draw, I'll post it.

Nico after the match today:

"El primer partido es siempre bueno para ganar ritmo. Lógicamente que por experiencia, por ranking y por nombre soy favorito, pero eso se acaba cuando entró a la cancha", dijo el nacional en Brasil.

"Acá los jugadores no tienen nada que perder cuando me enfrentan y no sienten presión", agregó el jugador nacional.

It will be difficult - Paul wants to prove that he can beat Nico after they never let him play Davis Cup.

And I'm not sure about Nico's mental edge. Seems that his mental game is his biggest problem right now. :tape: :shrug:

:rolls:

It does sound weird. :lol:

But true. Competition between the Chileans, and Paul always really wants to beat Nico.

And lots of Chileans think that Paul should have been used rather than Nico in the last couple of DC ties.

And this time, if Paul wins, he has amunition once DC rolls around again. (And personally I think Paul should be used if they are both hovering around the same ranking - I'm assuming it will be on hardcourts, and Nico just doesn't even bother with hardcourts anymore. :sad: :sad:)

10-10-2008, 10:08 PM
We're screw. It's raining at Florianopolis and the matches are suspended. In fact, don't even the 1st match has ended... and the Nico and Paul's match it's the 4th. :(

NicoFan
10-10-2008, 10:11 PM
Not sure what is going on - I know it was raining earlier, but just cloudy now. Looks like the match just before Nico's and Paul's just began.

A_Rod
10-10-2008, 10:13 PM

Good news :D
Has begun the match that is previous to Paul and Nico's match.

Shoot - now they have Luczak and Silva. Bummer. :sad: I'm not staying up all night to follow the score. :sad: :sad:

NicoFan
10-11-2008, 12:07 AM
They can't possibly have only one court. :lol:

Can't they just have two matches at once???

We wouldn't get it on live scoring, but at least they won't be playing at midnight tonight or neither Nico or Paul would have to play two matches in one day tomorrow.

A_Rod
10-11-2008, 01:58 AM
I think this jerks brazucas has programmed Paul & Nico to play after the current match. They will play at midnight :(. Damn, all today's previous matches were best of 3 sets.

NicoFan
10-11-2008, 02:04 AM
Totally unfair. :sad: I feel bad for both the chicos. Hanging around all day. And then whoever wins will be tired tomorrow.

I'll follow the first set, but that's about it. I have to be up early tomorrow. :sad:

I don't understand why they just didn't put them on another court.

It's a challenger. Not like there are huge crowds to accomodate.

And they can't possibly only have one court. That would be too bizarre.

NicoFan
10-11-2008, 02:11 AM
Finally the Luczak-Silva match is finished. Luczak won...

At least they'll start before midnight. :tape: :lol:

well, if Nico wins this tournament he's back in top 100... and Paul won a tournament last week so i suppose that this is Nico's time to win a title :lol:

ChinoRios4Ever
10-11-2008, 03:34 AM
I heard in the radio that Paul is dealing with a problem in one shoulder too. I think Nico has the edge mentally and fisically.

well Cap:devil:le lead 6-5*

NicoFan
10-11-2008, 03:35 AM
It is Nico's turn.

Plus I like Paul (well I like his brother William), but Paul will never be a top player.

Nico may never be a top player again either, but much more chance of him coming back than Paul ever doing anything big. I've watched Paul a long time, and he just doesn't have "it." Could be wrong though.

ChinoRios4Ever
10-11-2008, 03:38 AM

Don't be there, Nico will raise his game someday.

Same feeling, he's such a hardworker, someday he has to recover some confidence and some level.

Ask guys like Lapentti who reached a AMS QF this year, Nico will keep trying for sure.

NicoFan

This can sounds weird, but days after he won the Olympics, he said that in the moment in he was serving 40-30 for winning the match, he said "God, please let me win this, if you want, next remove me everything". Maybe all this years of bad results are because of that. I don't know.

What I really can't believe is that the tournament made them come out at midnight and play the match. Jerks. :mad:

Hopefully Nico can pull it out. :yeah:

I have to go to New Haven for the day so won't be able to follow the match.

And can't believe that it rained too. :eek:

Nico's best results have been on hardcourts. Shame that he's never put the time and effort into doing better on hardcourts. :sad: I think his career would have taken a different course if he had gotten a coach who could have maximized his resuls on hardcourts. Still believe that he can turn around his career by getting someone who can get him to think outside the box, especially on hardcourts. But alas, he refuses. :sad: :sad:

Man, take care. I'm not 100% sure about it, check the results of the other challengers and see Floripa is the challenger event who has less points to give this week.

Also see Petzschner who is outside of top 100 reached the Vienna final.

Yes, but Nico is only 5 points away of Top 100.

Let's see how he does today...we'll know better after the tournament.

And he's playing next week, but I forgot to check to see if he's playing the following week. Probably.

And then I think it's break time - which he deserves. :yeah:

13 oct Montevideo

ChinoRios4Ever
10-11-2008, 06:08 PM
Cali is a $125k+H CH. More points to the winner. :angel:

So the Copa Petrobras has an "Masters" with the 5 champions of 5 stages of the tour and 3 WC. And that tournament will be played in... SANTIAGO!!! So Nico and Paul are IN for sure. :p

Yes, but Patience won on three tough sets, a very long match and 2 TBs.
