You could try http://www.livescore.com/tennis.dll?page=home

They carry a lot of the scores. I'm not sure about this one though.

Sadly they don't have Kooyong's results :sad:

01-12-2005, 03:22 PM
Try this one:-


It's the site attached to the Australian TV station that are televising Kooyong. They don't up-date very quickly - but it's better than nothing.

01-12-2005, 09:34 PM
Great link Rosie, thanks :yeah:

Vamos Nico, you can win today :bigclap:

01-13-2005, 01:32 AM
Venga Nico - you can do it!

Actually I don't care if he wins or lose - he's still getting back into shape so I just want him to get back into form slowly.

And that picture Fergie that you post with him wiping his face - he looked discouraged. I wish I could find an interview with him after the match to see how he felt.

01-13-2005, 05:38 AM
Good news to wake up to - well done Nico for beating Ljubicic.

01-13-2005, 08:34 AM
Here are a couple of pictures from the match against Ljubicic that I found on the Getty site.

He reminds me of Rafter with that zinc across his nose. Ahh Rafter- I miss him.

I like the zinc on the nose... :-)

Hola Alonso!

¡Yo visted los sitios web de vina que usted "posted" anoche! Gracias para darme.

Se parece a una ciudad muy hermosa. ¡Las playas se suponen ser agradable, y adoro casinos también! Y es la ciudad de Nico! El es mi favorito... :-)

Suerte usted :-) Tu obtienes para vivir en Chile y ver los partidos de Nico en la televisión todo el tiempo, y lo ve en otras exposiciones de televisión.

Nico retired against Davis :sad::sad:

01-14-2005, 02:02 AM
Poor Nico, he is injury again :sad:

01-14-2005, 10:30 AM
This is an article from the Argentine newspaper Clarins Ole. For those of you who don't speak Spanish it says that Nico retired from the match with a left ankle injury - nothing to do with his recent surgery. I get the impression it is not too serious - more precautionary than anything else with the Open coming up. Sorry I don't have time to translate it properly for you now but I'm at work at the moment but here is the link to the article:-

Coincidentally - looking at the photo Fergie posted - I remember being at David's match against Nico at the Stoke Park Exhibition in England last year (just before Wimbledon), when David had to retire injured and consequently withdrew from Wimbledon. Nico was really sweet to him then and very concerned about his injury - and I think this photo shows David was the same yesterday.

Nalbandian derrotó al chileno Massú en el Kooyong Classic

El argentino se impuso por 6-4, 2-1 y abandono.

El argentino David Nalbandian se impuso hoy ante el chileno Nicolás Massú por 6-4, 2-1 y abandono, en un partido correspondiente al torneo de exhibición de tenis Kooyong Classic, que se disputa en la ciudad australiana de Melbourne.

Massú se retiró en el segundo parcial del encuentro. El medallista olímpico chileno, quien fue operado de una hernia en noviembre, dijo que se lesionó el tobillo izquierdo y no quería ponerlo en problemas antes del inicio del primer torneo importante de la temporada.

``Este fue uno de los primeros encuentros de la temporada, así que empecé a sentir un poco de dolor'', dijo.

En tanto, Nalbandian, noveno en el ranking mundial, había caído ante el británico Tim Henman en la primera jornada y en la segunda le ganó a su compatriota Gastón Gaudio.

De esta forma, el oriundo de Unquillo continuó con su preparación para el Abierto de Australia, que se disputará desde el próximo lunes y hasta el domingo 30, también en Melbourne.

En otro encuentro de la jornada, el número uno del mundo, el suizo Roger Federer, venció a Henman por 6-4 y 6-2 y jugará la final ante el estadounidense Andy Rodick.

Massu was watching the match with Garcia today and then he was training so it wasn't serious and I doubt that he will miss the Open.

Thanks Rosie and GWH!

GWH! thanks again for your reports. It sounds like you are really have a good time. :wavey:

There's a nice interview with Nico on the Kooyong site - but it has been done in an Adobe format and it's impossible for me to copy here. It's worth reading though - just go to the main Kooyong site and follow the links.

01-14-2005, 06:23 PM
Thanks for pictures and updates. And the interview at the Kooyong site is good.

01-14-2005, 06:47 PM
Thanks for the info Rosie, nice interview :yeah:
