I looked at the Oz Open web site - the draw comes out on 1/12 Australian time. So late tonight for us in the Americas??? :confused:

Here we go with time changes again. I have to check for that again because I don't remember. :rolleyes:

So it's almost 10:00 a.m. in Chile Thursday

No, its about 1:00 a.m. early Friday morning in Melbourne.

Don't know when they make the draw - if its Friday afternoon or evening Melbourne time - their web site doesn't say.

Nico will do well at the AO if the Nico from the JCF match shows up. As far as the draw goes, the worst thing that could happen, IMO, is that he would have to play one of his buddies.

Find that fire again Nico!!! :fiery:

I don't know how he keeps going.

If I had all that bad luck, forgive my bad language, but after awhile, I would say f*ck it. I got better things to do than beat myself up every week.

Still, you never know. :shrug: Nico can beat Djokavic (sp) :fiery:

NicoFan
01-12-2007, 01:20 AM
You're right Sparko.

Djokovic could have a bad day. Plus he gets sicks a lot (not that I would wish him ill - I would never do that).

Nico needs to stay positive.

He's a great player tooo!!!!! :fiery:

FIGHT NICO ALE FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!! :boxing:

Be a lean, mean, fighting machine and say screw you Nole you are going down for the count!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :fiery: :fiery:

Chileno
01-12-2007, 01:30 AM
...Just have a laugh and shrug it off. :)

Djokovic is one of those players with big serve and forehand, very similar to Gonzo, so Massu should be able to play with him no prob, specialy considering Massu returns serve much better than Feña.

Also as someone else mentioned Djokovic is not that regular, he tends to risk to much like old-style Gonzo. This gives a good defender like Massu a chance to break. All in all, this is by no means an impossible game for Nico, could've been worse...Federer, Nadal, Gonzo, Davidenko...

Nico can win, but he will have to be at his best, even if he is two sets down, he has to keep pushing, but Nico doesn't need us to tell him these things. I know he will give all he's got.

yes it'd be better but this is just in case ... besides he's always faking so maybe we'd see anyway a faint :lol:

VAMOOOOS NICOOO FIGHT FIGHT!!!! :fiery:

Brahna
01-12-2007, 06:51 PM
:wavey:
That's not fair what you're saying!
Djokovic has to be healthy as Nico has too.
You can't say you want he to be sick, to have a real confrontation, to the beauty of the game, to see Nico proud of a deserved victory, you can't say that.
Even Nico, who is a fair play player can't wish that! Even if you say that just for joking!:eek:
Look at that! We have to stop complaining about the poor Nico who has a bad draw, a bad luck and so on! Do you think, at the beginning of the year, imagine the scene,do you see Nico saying : "Oh Damn it, what a bad luck, Djokovic in the first round!"
No, he better says : "C'mon, I'm sure I will try my best and make my possible to beat him, that's it!" :)

Nico is great player and he has his chance to beat the best players!

Look at him against Ferrero, he wasn't the favourite, but he beated him, by playing a great match, by breaking J.C. serve at the beginning of each set, because mentally he known that he could win and he kept that frame of mind during the entire match.:bounce:

And bad luck as luck turns too!:haha:

It's not a moral lesson, but as everyone knows, it's pointless to complain, I say that for me too, and It would be good to me to apply that sentence to my life a little more often too!:haha:

I hope you don't hate me too much now!:awww:

VAMOS NICO!!!

tienes razon, kid... Nico has to be aware that Novak could be playing little tricks... :rolleyes:

NicoFan
01-12-2007, 07:46 PM
Good points Brahna!!! I agree. And Nico would want to win fairly. And it's not good to wish your opponent sick or hurt. Shame Kid... :(

And no one hates you Brahna. :hug:

Brahna
01-12-2007, 08:14 PM
Thanks NicoFan, you're kind, as always!:hug:

kidnicky
01-12-2007, 08:22 PM
I don't care! this "kid" faked against Nico in Amersfoort and he has done with tons of player so I can respect a player that doesn't respect to their oponents

And I'm always the mean one here so again I'm not surprised and I've been always be like that :p

But forgive me sometimes I forget that I'm not in the other part of the forum where I can say what I really think of every player :haha: I'm used to that :lol:

NicoFan
01-12-2007, 10:57 PM
Oh you can say what you like senorita Kid! :hug: Our Chat Thread leader. :worship:

Seriously, Djokovic doesn't like the heat.

If I were Nico (like he needs my advice :haha:), I would run his a*s all over the court until he drops. :angel:

And I don't feel bad saying that because that's about conditioning and strategy. I'm not hoping for him to get injured or anything like that.

No mercy! :fiery:

And Nico does have to be ready for Djokovic's tricks - I remember what he did against Puke Boy.

kidnicky
01-12-2007, 11:47 PM
Chat thread lider :haha: that's funny :p

Nico has to do the same as he did with JC ... he was driving him crazy making him running all over the court, Nico can stay still and make the other one run ... He'd end up fainting and puking probably :lol:

And Nico needs your advices in everything except the marriage thing :rolls:

NicoFan
01-13-2007, 12:47 AM
Don't worry Kid about the marriage thing - Nico never listens to me. :haha:

I guess that's 2:30 am for Kid and me then. :awww: I could stay up that late for a match to end but that's really a bad time for one to start-even though the 15th is MLK day here (no school) so I don't have to get up as early.

You are right Tommy.

It is only 10 hours difference between Melbourne and Paris/Germany.

Djokovic was a machine! If anyone has any chance of taking Federer out its Djokovic. I hope he does all other players a favour and takes Fed-Ex out of this one.

As for Massu, he was never the favourite but I did expect more of a fight, at least a 6-4 6-3 6-4! He was clearly below his level...

Hope Gonzo and Capdeville do better...

01-15-2007, 01:11 PM

I'm sure we will hear something as the day wears on.....(and I really really don't care for Djokavic :mad: :lol: )

And as if Nico's scorline wasnt' bad enough news to wake up to, I see the Fish has defeated Ljubicic of all players. :mad: I suppose that will be the upset of the day :rolleyes:

I found this:

Massú: "La verdad es que no me sentí bien"

La segunda raqueta nacional, Nicolás Massú (43º de la ATP), tras perder de forma categórica ante el serbio Novak Djokovic (15°) por 1-6, 1-6 y 0-6, el chileno manifestó que "no estuve en la cancha".

Para el viñamarino este partido de la primera ronda del Abierto de Australia ha sido uno de los peores de su carrera, debido a lo expresivo del marcador que se conformó en sólo una hora y 22 minutos de juego.

"Estoy un poco sorprendido, pero a veces en el deporte pasa, pero la verdad es que hoy día (lunes) no estuve en la cancha", manifestó a Radio Cooperativa.

"La verdad es que no me sentí bien, nunca. Tuve un muy mal día y no me sentía bien, y la verdad es que no jugué", agregó el "Vampiro".

Massú catalogó este como el peor partido de su carrera, que se engalana con la doble medalla de oro en los Juegos Olímpicos de Atenas 2004.

"Cuando empezó el partido y mientras fueron pasando los juegos no me sentía bien, y hace tiempo que no estaba así. A medida que avanzaba el encuentro fueron pasando cosas, y la verdad es que tuve un muy mal día y no pude jugar", sentenció.

El de la Quinta Región, luego de saber como le irá a Fernando González (9º) y Paul Capdeville (148º) en primera ronda, el viñamarino viajará a Chile para preparar el próximo desafío, el ATP de Vña del Mar, que se disputa entre el 29 de enero y el 4 de febrero.

Nico said that he didn't feel well and had a bad day ... And this was the worst worst match in his career

What I understood is that Nico was in a bad day, he didn't feel well, he didn't play and this is the worst match of his career.
But wait for someone who speaks spanish for the whole translation :lol:

your translation was correct Alx ;) ... damn! I knew that he could lose but not like this, something really happened out there, and something is happening in the Aus Open 'cause all the latinos are going down as flies :bigcry:

I really hope that Nico will feel better very soon .. I was really worried when everyone was saying that he doesn't look good but at least it seems that is not an injury :awww:

and I agree with you Sparko, I couldn't believe when I saw that Fish beated Ivan :eek:

Stupid Djokovic I'm sure that if he face Federer he's going to lose for the same sb that he beated Nico :ras:

Nico :hug:

NicoFan don't be so mad :hug: ... I understand but we've to understand sometimes too, although I still don't quite understand what happened in Melbourne :confused:

I really don't understand what happened with Nico, Nole was obviously the favorite to win that match, but that score!!!!!!!! :rolleyes: I was really upset with Nico, there was no fight, no emotion, no play, no motivation.... :o

I hope he recovered all this in Chile, as always, Davis Cup is coming and we need an in-form claycourt Nico, so it's better to turn the page NOW!!!

The truth is that Nico Massu wasn't the guy who was on court some hours ago, I watched the match and He simply didn't have answers to Djokovic'c shots.
It was a tough loss, but I think He had something bothering him :shrug: I haven't seen him like that lately. In Auckland I saw another Nico in 1st round against Ferrero so I suppose He has something.
Anyway, All my support in this moment for everyone :) and for Nico too, We are all pretty hurt. :hug:

It happened the same last year in Paris, I was unable to recognize our Nico, he didn't fight as he might fight, he looked dejected, with not a lot of motivation too, but then we learnt he was in pain whith is foot and that he was sick.
I remember watching him, and I was saying to myself, damn it, there's something wrong, he was pale and seemed to be already beaten a few points after the beginning of the match. I guess it was Lovely who was here too. Do you remember that?The Score wasn't as horrible as today, but I can remember Nico in a bad day!:sad: Poor 'lil Nico!:crying2:

That the end of Nico's run at the AO, but that's it!
So now, back on clay:bounce: with his fabulous shots!:drool:
:rocker2: KICK ASS ON CLAY, NICO:rocker2:

Sorry!

yes of course that I remember that and the worst thing is that we're all here wondering what the hell happens to him and we found out hours later that he's sick or something happened to him ... this is when I hate that nobody update us inmediately about what is happening during a match :p

you're right, thank God we're back to clay now and I definetely hope that he'll kick some butt .. ok a lot of butts here :rocker2:

Yes I was there too with Eléa...It was the match against Clément...No fight at all...Poor Nico was sick...I met him in the morning some hours before the match and he was so pale and not shaved and well...you could see there was something wrong...:awww:

The RG match I've seen against Malisse was so different !!!lots of amazing points !!! :D

Now it's time to kick butts on clay !!!:bounce:
