Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Yes, I know Machado is not Scottish, and it's a play on his last name.

He had a good season this year and should be able to make the top 100 in 2010 barring injury, which impacted on his progress towards the end of 2009.

He won a couple of challengers in Meknes and Athens, plus he made the 2nd round of Roland Garros and lost to Crazy Koellerer in the first round of the US Open.

Machado is on the list for the AO qualies, hope he can play it and make the MD.

That's a reason, but still. It costs money, results in jetlags, and he loses his rhytm on clay which was very good the last weeks. He could have played Marrakech and gained many points there, more than he will get in Miami probably. Than he could have taken a week off and play the Italian challenger. Strange move.

Great Machado!!! You can call me a patriot, but i really think that Machado is a Top100 player. It's not going to happen that soon, cause he have to defend too many points, included in Roland Garros, where he came from the Quali to lose in the 2ēround. But in the end of the year i think he will be the 3rd portuguese to be in the top100...

I agree, is in the best form of his carrer... This week, just missed the top100 by only 2 places (102), but like you say, if he keep building this kind of results, he will be surely in top100 this year. Maybe he can be a surprise in some ATP 250 level in the clay. Hope he do well, especially in Estoril, i have faith in him!

Yikes, he's starting to come back after reaching the finals at a Rome challenger, but other than that it has been 0 wins and 9 losses =/

Well, he won his first ATP level match in 10 attempts this year. But was seriously thrashed afterwards by Del Potro... Now, challengers again...

What's the matter with him? Will he be fit for the beginning of 2012?

He'll be back in January. He's already playing some national tournaments in Frane and Spain for some clubs. Hope he can get the 2011 level in 2013.

will be back next week. Will start with some Futures in Portugal these weeks. Already played for Davis Cup last weekend. Will be an another really hard comeback, but he's a fighter. Vamos.
