iīd like to know what you think about nicoīs draw?!
i think first round versus stepanek is surely not impossible but definitely hard the same time, and especially the second round match versus kiefer could get very hard. but i really hope that thatīll be the second round match, as iīd probably get the chance to watch nico playing on tv when he plays a german one, hee*!

I think the draw for the first round could be worse, and second round Kiwi....possibility to take revenge.... Jule let's hope that the schedule will be that way, that the match vs Kiefer will be on a showcourt :) But first he has to beat Stepanek

And Giovi has to play tonight his 2nd round quali match....please be faster than last night! I went to bed at 2.20 because of your match :wink:

giovanni is in the final quali-round so letīs hope the best for tonight so that weīll see 2 ecuadorians in the us open main draw :D
maybe thereīs a possibility of a brother-doubles, although i fear they wonīt get a wildcard what they surely would need to get in. but hey, we donīt wanna be unthankful, great singles-results would be enough for us, right :)

you're right, Jule...Though I'm gonna sit again in front of pc and watch the sb (I already do) and pray Giovi through his match, like I did the nights before. ;) But when my "boys" win it's all worth the work...

Yeah, Goooo Nicoooo! :bounce:
I also hope he'll play against Kiefer, because I can watch the important German tv channels in Holland :p .
But I don't mind sitting in front of my computer and cheering for Nico, while looking at that scoreboard really nervous :D . My parents always think I'm crazy when I'm talking to my computer, but hey it's Nico, I have to watch when I can :p .

Too bad Giovi lost :sad:

There will be no coverage in other German channels than Eurosport, Kezzi. But Eurosport rocks this year...coverage from around 5pm (depends on the finish of Vuelta) til the end of the night session on Armstrong stadium, yay! I won't sleep alot those two weeks, that's sure.

There's a lot on Eurosport too in Holland :bounce:
Too bad it's not on other German channels, there are also no other Dutch channels which will broadcast the USO :(

Not very good news before the first match: According to an Ecuadorian paper Nico has a small problem with the hip-flexion-muscle. He says himself that it disturbs a bit, but is no major problem.

I don't know, I'm not really good with time differences :p

It should be about 4pm NYC time (10pm here), calculating with 2 hours for the women's match and 3 hours for the men's match before Nico (because of best-of-five for men)

There is a super website for time calculating: time zones (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/full.html)

Nico lost 5-7, 6-7(5), 1-6 :sad: :sad: :sad: I came home quite at the end of the first set, so I nearly only know the score of it, but in second set he was first a break down, then broke back, and the same was then in tie-break. There he was also a mini-break down, then broke back, but got a mini-break again, that Nico lost the set....In the last set he got broken very fast too, and then at 3-1 for Stepanek had several breakchances to break back. He didn't achieve that and I think, that Nico then didn't really believe anymore in his chances to come back. But the last half sentence is my own assumption.

Next year we all will be there to cheer for him in person :) .

As long as he doesn't play the same time like Mariano Zabaleta, I'm ok with that ;)

Kezzi

When we're there, I hope we'll already be used to the time difference :p . We have to cheer for Giovi in qualies too, together with Nico ;) .

For me the time-difference to NY is no problem at all. I know NY is 6 hours away, Los Angeles 9, and Melbourne in winter also 9 hrs in the other way....
