Like Alonso said, it was definitely addictive!!! I must have voted for hours last weekend, and we had a holiday on Monday. I would just watch TV or listen to music, and vote and vote and vote!!! ;)

Really nice article in lun.com about Nico's winning the WC:

Not even the own Mass˙ believed it when they notified him that he beat Alberto Martin and James Blake in the voting by internet.

"Mom, why lose time calling to all parts, if I do not have any possibility of winning that voting. He does not see that is the Beto Martin, that is a Spaniard, and the account carries it the newspaper 'Marco'. It is impossible that I can beat him".

Nicolas Mass˙ thanked thus their mother the inconvenience of to have called to all their acquaintances to ask them that voted for their son to obtain the third and last available quota for the final picture of the Masters Series of Madrid.

But yesterday, just before entering to play against Jarkko Nieminen, in the first round of the tournament low ceiling of Stockholm, the officials of the ATP reported him the good news al vi˝amarino and this could not believe it.

"It called me immediately. Was very I please, because was something totally unexpected. Never did he think that he would be able to come to win the voting", Manuel Mass˙. Al to seem, the Aunt Sonia has more drag of the one that she same believes.

The father of the second racquet of the country did neither hide his enormous satisfaction: "he deserves it, because if to have been in good physical conditions during this direct year would have entered al final picture. The ranking that has today is circumstantial; Nicolas deserves to be further up. This also it shows that is a lot of the people that wants it, and not only in Chile", comments Manuel Mass˙.

The campaign so that the Olympic champion entered the tournament of Madrid had two phases. The first one, in charge of the agent of Mass˙, the American Ken Meyerson of whom suggested that to ask the invitation al Spanish tournament arguing its condition of Olympic champion, finalist of the of Madrid tournament in 2003 and the fact that one of the auspiciadores of the contest, Telefonica, is also sponsors al vi˝amarino. Thanks to that they included it in the list of the candidates of the newspaper "Marca".

Later was the shift of the mother of the tennis player. "My wife called to everyone. He was passed because of what Sonia did", Manuel Mass˙.

The Aunt Sonia, in the meantime, account that "people called me since outside, and they related that me themselves responsible for sending him mails to their acquaintances, forming chains, so that all they voted by Nicolas. My friend Tito Orellana and another friend lawyer of New York they did it spontaneously, without we we told them nothing. To them they add our friends of Vina del Mar and Santiago. Besides, we had the support of the media. Fernando Solabarrieta, of TVN, and Rodrigo Sep˙lveda, of Mega, they called to the people to vote. To all they, to all the people in general, I want to give my infinite thanks, because they managed to give him the best gift of birthday to Nicolas and because they helped it in something very important for his career. Beyond the affection, he deserved to enter direct in this championship".
