Nico played great, esp. when He broke at 4-5*

His BH was solid, He even got winners with it.
Serve great and strong forehand! :p

Monaco got frustrated at times and Nico was more patient.

Solid Performance! I'm so glad :bounce:

Anyways Well Played Monaco! :hatoff:

Me again... :p

Nico played a good match today, his forehand return, even some BH winners and good net approaches :eek: Pico didn't play bad, but he lose in the important points.

Good luck in the next round... Galvani is not much trouble (in theory) ;)

It seems to be hard for a player who wins one of these South American events to carry over the form to the next week; last year Massu won in Brazil after reaching the final in his home town, but I suppose the two-way split that Gaudio and Nadal achieved in 2005 won't be seen again for a while.

Moreover, Nadal and Gaudio proceeded to get some additional clay titles in 2005 while last year we didn't see much of a followup from the South American title winners.

I think it's worse than that... looking at the Latinoamerican tour's champions, I don't like the tendency....

I don't found strange that Chucho had won last year in Viña.

me too, even Horna winning in Viña this year, he didnt drop a set all week, he was clear the best player in the tournament

strange is... Carretero winning Hamburg!!! :p

I don't get the point of this either.

There are excellent players on those lists. Fairly impressive in fact.

:confused:

For any tournament you can find players who are one-time wonders...including Slams.

Maybe Pico hasn't hit his stride completely yet, but he's young - and some players take longer to move up than others.

I don´t get what´s wrong with those players either... They were the best ones in those tournaments.

Anyway, congrats to Massú and his fans. It´s an interesting scoreline. I didn´t watch it, so I don´t know how bad the wind was, but it seemed it could have been an entertaining match to watch. :)

I think this was the best match of the year by Massú. Not because he played great, but as somebody said before he was consistent and patient. This should be a big step for Massú, let's hope he can keep it up.
