HAMBURG: Another Bad Draw - Do Your Best Nico!

Nico's ranked #32 right now.

32 seeds at Roland Garros.

Its now or never to make sure he stays in the top 32. Last week to get points before the seeds come out.

There are 3 players ahead of him that aren't playing - Andre, Andreev, and someone else that the person who told us can't remember. I'll try to find out. :lol:

That obviously pulls him up to #29 in the seeds as of right now.

(I hope I'm figuring this all right - I'm clueless at these rankings things - if I'm wrong, please let me know so I can fix this before too many people read it. :haha: )

He's worked so hard to get there - hopefully he can do it! He totally deserves it! :yeah:

VAMOS NICO! YOU CAN DO IT!

FYI.

The main draw is pulled tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. Hamburg time.

That's 8:00 a.m. Chile time.

Probably will take an hour or two before they post it on their web site.

Massu doesn't defend points in Hamburg because they were erased this week and the other player that withdrew is Lleyton.

yes you got it wrong NicoFan .... just kidding!! :haha: I'm the worst with the ranking thing so I reallly hope that you're okay NicoFan.

And I'm sending the best vibes to Nico!! He can do it!!! just one step!! You can defend the points in Hamburg Nico!!! VAMOOOOS :fiery:

He has worked so much for this, I'm sure that he can get it! and now that he's having some hapiness for the doubles, this will be great for him!

VAMOOOS NICOOO!!! YOU'VE OUR SUPPORT!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!! :rocker2:

Good luck to Nico in the draw. Of course having said that, I realize there is no such thing :lol: Still, I will hope for the best.

I can't believe this. Another sucky draw.

I'm really tired of this - I don't even want to follow the match.

:sad:

There goes the seeding for Roland Garros.

05-13-2006, 04:09 PM
I woke up and the first thing that I did was to turned on the tv to follow the semifinals and then I heard the commentators saying the great news of the "GREAT" draw that we got :mad: I can't freaking believe this shit!!!! :fiery:

The next time I'll ask for a tough draw, then maybe we'll get the opposite .... this just sucks!!! :ras: and Davydenko wans't feeling very good in Rome and he retired against Almagro but I'm sooo sure that he'll be excellent for Nico's match, because that's our lovely luck :sobbing:

Yes ... good bye to the seeding in RG :hysterical:

But still ... BUENA SUERTE NICO!!! WE'LL SUPPORT YOU NO MATTER WHAT :hug:

I don´t like the Draw...above all the first round! Nico vs. Davy and Tommy vs. Nadal. :mad:

But i think Nico has the chance to win at least. VAMOS!! :devil:

Sparko1030
05-13-2006, 05:56 PM
Not a good draw but....Nico can come through. I've found that often when I think the draw is awful my favs do well and vice versa. Last time Nico had a Qualifier which should be easier but ...well, that qualifier went on to challange Roger in the quarters so you never know.

Anyway, while being realistic, I'm not going to give up hope :) .

I'm glad I saw your post. Maybe we should change some of our favorite players. I like both Tommy and Nico also and they both just seem to get terrible draws :fiery: Of course, it makes things even more difficult for me because I'm also a Nadal fan. I think I just have too many favorite players :lol:

Yeah i saw it too. :wavey: I have also many favorite players like Federer, Kiefer, Agassi or Henman for example but Tommy and Nico at the top. It´s possible that Nadal cancel when he win Rom today...but i hope to see this match and also Nico against Davydenko.

NicoFan
05-14-2006, 02:24 PM
TommyB and Mae - yeah Tommy H never gets good draws either and is another player with absolutely no luck. I like TommyH too...he's on the honorable mention list because only players from Spain or South America can be on my favorite list. :lol: I know....silly.

Someone told me that before Nico got to be a top player that he trained in Florida for awhile and was TommyH's practice partner a lot. Don't know if that's true or not though because it was before I started watching Nico.

TommyB - have a great time in Hamburg!!! Are you also going to Dusseldorf?

@NicoFan

Of course...both players have no luck in the moment with the draws especially at TMS. I think it´s true that Nico and Tommy H. practiced in Florida and also during some tournaments.

Thanks...hope i have a great time and the chance to see some matches with both guys. I´m really nervous!! :D

I try it with Düsseldorf...but only to the final Chile vs. Germany (Nico vs. Tommy) ;) . No i´m not sure in the moment. TV will show the WTC here in germany so it isn´t a problem if i can´t go to Düsseldorf.

Yeah, they may be tired but good point Kid. Well, I hate to see them loose to you-know-who too but if they are tired from last week it may be best they're out of doubles. Maybe it was too late for them to pull out-I don't know all the rules on that sort of thing.

stupid scorboard....cooperativa is stalled at 3-5 duece but since the other score is gone that they must have been broken again and lost the match.

kidnicky
05-15-2006, 04:50 PM
and like NicoFan said, just for the record I HATE MONDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :bigcry:

Now I hope that they lost here to make a good participation in singles, otherwise I'll be so pissed off!!!

But still if they're tired or they want to focuss on singles, what in the name of God they played doubles?!?!?!?!?! :mad:

NicoFan
05-15-2006, 04:53 PM
I think like Sparko said it was probably too late for them to get out of the draw for doubles.

And Hamburg really wasn't fair to them by putting their doubles match on Monday when they were just playing. Usually the tournament the next week doesn't make a player who makes the SFs or finals in the previous tournament play right away.

Sparko1030
05-15-2006, 04:55 PM
:hug: to all. A lost today doesn't mean the end of the rest of the week. I know it all looks a little bleak right now :rain: :sobbing: but...well, it might not turn out as bad as we think right now. :umbrella: :p

So true Sparko. I've been bummed over the singles draw, but I need to get over it. And if he loses, not being seeded at RG isn't the end of the world either.

VAMOS NICO!

Positive thoughts for tomorrow.

kidnicky
05-15-2006, 05:03 PM
I was thinking exactly the same, why Hamburg putted them to play today when they just played on saturday, that's stupid!! :mad:

Well anyway, like Sparko said, we still have the singles matches and I know that it doesn't look better for us, we've to be possitives and hopefully we can receive some good news this week, at least the singles match wasn't on monday :p

I´m back at home. Damn!...the double with Nico was closed when i arrived on court and saw the score 3:6 3:6. :( I talked with a people who said Blake and Malisse played really better and more concentrate. I think Nico and also Gonzo will concentrate to their single matches tomorrow...that´s more important.

And tomorrow i´ll be on time to see Nico playing and give good luck to him!! :)

VAMOS NICO!!

Hi Tommy :wavey:

Hopefully they're focussing on their single's matches, it's the only thing that I could ask.

So great that you'll be there tomorrow supporting Nico :banana: hopefully you'll be a lucky charm tomorrow ... we need it :p

Have a good time!

That must have been a total bummer TommyB! Did you get to see Tommy H's double match at least?

Please give Nico all the luck you can tomorrow!! :)

Yes i saw the double match with Tommy H...this one was really nice with a good atmosphere (like Davis-Cup) on the showcourt. Alex Waske on fire...he is totally crazy when he played with Tommy. They made this day a little bit pleasent for me. :)

I do it if course!! :fiery:

Yes Tommy B, I'm confident that you'll be the lucky charm tomorrow ... we need it :p

Vamooos Nico!!!! :bounce:

what other matches did you see Tommy???

I saw only double matches: Haas/Waske vs Berdych/Levinsky and Schüttler/Kohlmann vs. Bhupathi/Ginepri partly.

I had not much time today...the most single matches were finished when i arrived the courts and i had no tickets for the CC today.

wow poor massu too bad lucky for him in the three master series on clay. in montecarlo drawed ferrer in the first round, then he drawed almagro in rome and now davydenko in hamburg :o

my fav player acasuso gets pretty usually bad draws in slams and master series too :mad:

I'm about to going to work, well there's nothing you can do when you have Davydenko in front of you, I really hate this stupid draws!!! it's impossible that you could have an easier second round instead of a easy first round.

I know that Nico isn't playing bad, and I was watching Fernando's match and it's kind of windy anyway, it's not the end of the world but I'm sick and tired of this bad luck to our sweet chico, it's just so unfair!! :ras:

Nico I'll support you no matter what, this has to end I know it!!! Just be confident and you can do it!!

Well he must have lost because the match is gone from the sb.

Sb is the typical sh*tty sb. Could they keep it up one second after the match is completed? :mad:

Well - see you all for RG....where now he won't be seeded. :sad:

Could care less about Dusseldorf. No points, no help to his ranking, so really why bother? Just will wear him out for RG. Don't know why they go year after year.

Poor Nico. :hug:

I can't help myself!!! I'm mad and sad what a bummer!!!! if in RG we get Rafa in the first round I won't be surprised at all.

I've to practice dark and white magic, this bad luck has to stop!!!!!! :o

Well I could care less about WTC. But as Kid reminded me, Nico loves to play for Chile. To me its a wasted week - no points. And he's had too many of those weeks this year - 2 weeks for DC (though he had to do those), Dusseldorf, and surprisingly he signed up for the Boodles Challenge - again no points. But he knows what he's doing ... maybe he thinks its a good warmup for RG.

Hi!

What can i say? I´m disappoint and very sad about these scores today (Nico lost and Tommy H retired once more). :sad: :sad: :bigcry:

I saw Nico and really happy above it. I think he had some problems with the conditions on court...and the weather especially. Nico played not bad but problems with the return games in the second set (to harmless i must say) and with his serve (percentage mainly) in the first set. Davydenko used his chances (big points) consistent and played solid all the time.

Our guy fought but it wasn´t enough today against a further top player like Davydenko. At all I saw Nico for the first time this year so i can´t say if he played better or not as the last time...unsuccessful of course. :shrug:

But i´m glad to see him (he looked at me once :lol: ) and confident for the next weeks. VAMOS NICO!! :)

Thanks for the report TommyB! I feel so bad for you in one way, but in another, I'm jealous cuz you saw Nico! Nico looks cute winning or losing. :lol:

I thought he was having problems with his serve, and return of serve can be a problem sometimes for him. Glad that he fought though.

But he looked at you!!! :woohoo: Now that's really exciting!!!! :)

It was kind of a tough day for you huh?? it's just a bummer that your 2 favorites are out in the first round :sad: ... well at least you saw them and Nico looked at you :banana: ... you forget everything when he does that, right NicoFan?? :lol:

Thanks for the report, we're waiting to know from you and I saw that it was kind of windy today but again, if the stupid draws don't help, there's not to much that you can do about it :mad:

Hopefully you'll see happy faces from the boys during Dusseldorf :yeah:

05-17-2006, 05:12 AM
Thanks for the report Tommy Girl. Tommy having to retire is so scary. Hope its nothing serious. After Rafa pulled out I thought Tommy would do well. Bad luck all round it seems.

About Dusseldorf-I wasn't thrilled they were going to do it again but Kid is right, it does mean a lot to both of them and that can't be measured I guess. Hopefully Nico will do well and have some fun and then kick some butt at RG.

TommyB.
05-17-2006, 06:10 PM
@Sparko

Tommy Girl? ;)

Tommy H retired because of an allergy. I think it isn´t serious and he can play soon.

Dear Adidas:

Please send Nico a different color shirt! We're begging you! Please please please please.

We really like the black one with the orange sleeves like Fernando is wearing, but at this point, we'd take anything that was different (but not the skin tight ones that Guille is wearing though...that's a definite no!).

BTW - I hope you have plans to do a # shirt like Kiefer is wearing for Diadora...that's very cool. :yeah:

Interview with Nico in Radio Cooperativa:

After losing for third consecutive time in the first round of a Masters Series, the viñamarino analyzed with calm his moment and was shown unworried by the eventuality of not to be seeded in Roland Garros.

Nicolas Massú (32º) was eliminated Tuesday in the first round of the Masters Series of Hamburg, just as occurred in Montecarlo and Rome, but far from being worried, the viñamarino was taken with tranquility this bad gust of wind of results, vouched for by the good tennis that has shown in his judgment.

"I believe that I am playing well, perhaps I am not playing extraordinary, but I am playing well enough, I am doing the things well", affirmed Massú in dialogue with Radio Cooperativa.

The Olympic champion considered that "in the court I believe that I have had good matches, perhaps not in important moments where has touched me to close or exactly important perhaps I have not played so well as to win the matches".

"I have lost the matches there, by a break in a set, a that another important ball that it I have not played well and the truth is that in Montecarlo, Rome and here the same thing has passed me and is to expect that continue not me passing", added.

Massú runs the risk of be not head of series in Roland Garros the next one great challenge after the World Cup by Teams of Düsseldorf. Nevertheless, this neither restless al number two national.

"My goal was to arrive seeded to Roland Garros and I am there. I depend on some results, of some players that be erased and I hope to be seeded. If not, I will try to do possible the best", commented.

"I do not worry a lot of the pictures, because when touches you in the first round is difficult, already later in second or third when already you won a match the thing is seen different. But to win Roland Garros and for arrive up one has to win him to all", added.

05-18-2006, 01:08 PM
Looks from Judio's calculation that he will miss it by one. He's ranked 35 right now, and 34 is the cutoff to be seeded for RG.

Which means the only way he can be seeded is for another person to drop out.

The joy of RG coming up is now gone.

:bigcry:

kidnicky
05-18-2006, 02:33 PM
Oh well, maybe someone else will drop out, you never know besides maybe he'd have better luck with the draw if he's not seeded, I mean there's no such thing as a good draw on these kind of tournaments, and to be seeded doesn't mean that you'll get in the first round a player that's beyond the 100, we got a qualifier the last RG and everyone know what happened so well I'm sad because he won't be seeded, but not for the possible draw (I'm used to bad ones now) is because I know that he wanted to acomplish this goal.

NicoFan, great letter for Adidas :yeah: we should send it today :lol:

NicoFan
05-18-2006, 02:39 PM
You're right - last year he got a qualifier and it was a first round loss.

But in Slams, to be seeded is very important unlike in a Masters Series event where every draw is pretty much a bad draw.

So this is truly bad news for him.

:sad:

We can only hope that someone else drops out.

kidnicky
05-18-2006, 02:53 PM
Well NicoFan, he's calmn (or at least he's trying to do it) so we've to be calmn :p .... we can only hope to not have another top ten in the first round and well we'll see what happens, we never got good luck on grand slams so I'll try to take a pill to not make an scene like the last year :lol: he did great at our beloved USO :p so I'm expecting more from that.

And if Nico weren't in "trouble" with his ranking, I'd preffer for him to skp the all grass season :haha:
