Time to me to start a tournament thread here. :wavey: Give me luck :lol:

A Chilean should start the Vina tournament thread! :yeah: :lol:

I'm excited about the tournament.

Hopefully Nico isn't having too much of a good time with Dayana and is training a little bit for the tournament. ;) :rolls:

VAMOS NICOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

01-28-2009, 01:50 AM
it's the time of the nightmare tournament :scared: :p

I thought that he'd be playing on monday since I think F Gonzalez would play on tuesday since he was the one actually working and playing the last week :rolls:

Horrible draw for Nico, but at least this Fillols morons put Feña and Nico in different parts of the draw. :o

So we can hope for a Feña-Nico final. Well, it's only a dream. :angel:

NicoFan
02-01-2009, 12:18 AM
Whatever...I didn't have much hopes for this tournament anyway. :sad:

ChinoRios4Ever
02-01-2009, 12:23 AM
No doubles for Nico this time. Feña will play doubles with Hans Podlipnik and Paul will play with Adrian.

Nico will play on tuesday night, according to Radio Cooperativa.

NicoFan
02-01-2009, 12:26 AM
Nico never plays doubles anymore. :sad: Don't know why not. Of course, don't know why he does or doesn't do anything anymore. :shrug: :lol:

Sparko1030
02-01-2009, 01:20 AM
:awww:

Let's hope Nico brings that fighting spirit he had at the AO, along with a little more mental toughness :yeah:

kidnicky
02-01-2009, 02:39 AM
see? that's why I call this the nightmare tournament :retard: :haha:

of course he's not playing doubles, he is just too busy with other "things" right now :p

NicoFan
02-02-2009, 09:36 PM
Nico plays Calleri tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10:00 p.m.

BUENA SUERTE NICO! :bounce:

NicoFan
02-04-2009, 01:35 AM
7-6 (4) Calleri.

:sad:

Sparko1030
02-04-2009, 01:36 AM
First set Calleri 7-6(4) :(


Win this next set Nico-you CAN do it!!! :fiery:

It was a long set. 1 hour 10 minutes.

NicoFan

Hi NicoFan :wavey:

NicoFan
02-04-2009, 01:52 AM
I'm not watching - what is the reason for this newest loss that is coming? Calleri is playing like Nadal?

Sparko1030
02-04-2009, 01:53 AM
crap, broken. 1-3*

Keep fighting Nico and break back!!!

kidnicky
02-04-2009, 01:53 AM
sure :p :rolls:

ok I can't be mean I can't :p but for me both are playing like crap :tape: but you didn't hear it from me, maybe my livestream, which frozes every 5 seconds, is not working properly :lol:

Sparko1030
02-04-2009, 01:54 AM
I'm not watching - what is the reason for this newest loss that is coming? Calleri is playing like Nadal?


:shrug: Nico saved 2 bp but not enough. I don't know.....

Sparko1030
02-04-2009, 01:55 AM
Yeah, neither of them look too fired up. :(

kidnicky
02-04-2009, 01:56 AM
so it's not me the one who is not watching right? :lol:

NicoFan
02-04-2009, 01:59 AM
Yeah, neither of them look too fired up. :(

Well, why am I not surprised?

Anyone feel like boycotting until he decides to actually do something to win?

Yet again, I really don't think he cares one bit about his career. Seems silly to root for a player who really doesn't care whether he wins or losses himself. :shrug:

kidnicky
02-04-2009, 02:01 AM
well at least I'm decided to stay with Jasper in my avy until he decides to do really do something about his career :p

kidnicky
02-04-2009, 02:02 AM
1-5 :haha: :retard: :crazy:

maybe he is on a rush to go and scr*w with his little new girlfriend :p

Sparko1030
02-04-2009, 02:03 AM
:sad: Broken again....this set is going much faster than the last :(
He was doing better before I started watching-I should have left-I'm sure that would have made all the differnce :lol: (sarcstic laugh)

NicoFan
02-04-2009, 02:03 AM
5-1 Calleri serving for the match.

He should be embarrassed to be playing like this in front of the home crowd.

Just the embarrassment should get him to do something.

But sadly - it won't. :sad:

Well :wavey: for the evening.

Chat with you on Facebook manana. ;)

kidnicky
02-04-2009, 02:07 AM
It's over :rolleyes:

This is really a shame :o Calleri was playing like crap and still managed to win this match in 2 sets :rolleyes:

Enjoying your night having s*x Nico :retard:

Talk to you tomorro NicoFan :hug:

Sparko1030
02-04-2009, 02:18 AM
:wavey: Nicofan

Somehow I clicked my computer off while typing :retard:

Agree with both of you-that last set was painful to watch. No pride even in front of the homecrowd and mom and girlfriend :sad: I was hopeful after the way he played at the AO but this 2nd set was simply dismal. Nico, Nico, Nico......

NicoFan
02-04-2009, 02:27 AM
Sadly, he hasn't had pride on court for a couple of years. :sad:

kidnicky
02-10-2009, 02:44 AM
well like the article that Fergie posted says, Nicolas lost in 3 sets against Vasallo Arguello :o

next, Buenos Aires, if he plays there of course :p

Sparko1030
02-10-2009, 05:52 AM
:tears: Please give me some reason to believe Nico :hug:

hope for some wins on grass :tape:

kidnicky
02-11-2009, 01:49 AM
that would be something bizarre isn't? :rolls: :o

NicoFan
02-11-2009, 01:59 AM
Sad to see that he lost. :sad: Looks like he fought to come back. :shrug:

Better luck in BA.

kidnicky
02-11-2009, 02:10 AM

I am crossing the picket line for a brief moment ;) to wish Nico luck at Buenos Aires. And to tell him to kick butt! :fiery: Time for the first win of the season.

kidnicky
02-15-2009, 02:29 AM
:rolls: ... well if he passes the first round, then it could be Almagro again so it doesn't look good at all, anyway at least I hope he wins the first round :unsure:

Come on Nicolas, it's time!!! :fiery:

Sparko1030
02-15-2009, 04:13 AM
VAMOOOOOOOS NICO!!! :rocker2:

kidnicky
02-16-2009, 01:34 AM
Nico is playing tomorrow, in the 3rd turn on court 2 .... matches start there at 11.30 am Bs Aires time around 3.30pm Argentina time

Vamos Nico! :fiery:

Sparko1030
02-16-2009, 03:55 AM
Best of Luck Nico!!! :hatoff:

VAMOOOOS NICO!!!

Sparko1030
02-17-2009, 01:01 AM
I've been gone all day and expeted to find a score for Nico's match but from what I can make out, his match was cancelled due to rain-so I assume it will be rescheduled for tomorrow.

ChinoRios4Ever
02-17-2009, 02:23 AM
Nico plays at 10:30 am chilean time if no :rain:

kidnicky
02-17-2009, 02:38 AM
thanks for the info Felipe, I only could check that his match was re-scheduled for tomorrow :p

ChinoRios4Ever
02-17-2009, 02:42 AM
Yeah, it rained all the morning in Baires and they decided to end the qualy matches in the outside courts and put the other MD matches on tuesday.

Sparko1030
02-17-2009, 04:50 PM
:sad: Nico lost a 3 setter after winning the first set 36,64,64.

I missed his match (no good reason,just thought his match was later in the day) so I don't know what or how it happened.

kidnicky
02-18-2009, 01:43 AM
sad sad sad situation :sad: ... until when Nico?!?! :o

NicoFan
02-18-2009, 02:02 PM
It is sad. :sad: And it will keep going on until he decides to make some changes and invest in his career again. I don't see it happening though - if he won't take Marcelo's advice, he won't take anyone's advice. :shrug:

kidnicky
02-19-2009, 02:50 AM
yeah you're probably right, if he doesn't take Marcelo's advice it's impossible that he'd take any other advice :o

so it seems that he won't play any other tournament until ... when huh? :scratch: :lol:
