Alonso - I love the thread title!!! :yeah:

I don't care if it's an exhibition either - he can work on his game with no pressure.

VAMOS NICO ALE! :rocker:

I never heard of Arsenov - I have heard of Dorsch but don't know anything about him. :shrug:

If River Oaks is anything like the Houston tournament, results will be difficult to get.

Sparko - get ready! You and I will be calling down to Houston this time! :lol: Thank goodness for lots of cell minutes. :lol:

maybe Nico will ask for a WC in the Houston ATP next week... i hope so :angel:

That's what I thought at first too. But if he goes deep, he wouldn't be able to qualify for MC, verdad?

Question: doesn't Nano Zuleta have connections with tennis people in Houston? Which may be why Nico plays in Houston now and again (which really is kind of odd for a SA clay court specialist to play there.) Or have I completely lost my mind and am totally remembering incorrectly? If so, please completely disregard this. :lol: :lol:

ChinoRios4Ever
04-03-2007, 12:12 AM
i heard some things about the Nano Zuletas and Houston`s connectiton, in the past when he was coach of Hermes Gamonal, Phillip Harboe and Adrian Garcia (some chilean players) reach an agree to make some practice in the same club when Houston made the TMC some years ago....

Nico will enter Monte-Carlo for sure, he's only 4 spots OUT, and many players always withdraw from that tournament at last minute, see Roddick, Blake, Hewitt and many more...

NicoFan
04-03-2007, 12:37 AM
Thanks! Good, my memory hasn't gone. :lol:

I'll be very surprised if ARod and James don't drop out of MC. Probably El Pescado too.

kidnicky
04-03-2007, 02:35 AM
the american players droping out from a MS in clay?!?! nooooooo that never has happened before :p (yeah it was my turn to be sarcastic :p)

well actually I don't know if it would be good or not if Nico plays in Houston the next week, 'cause our french spy is going to be in Monte Carlo the weekend before the tournament and I want that she could see Nico for me :awww: but again, let's wait to see what happens here ;)

NicoFan you have a good memory but No1Rios memory is out of this world :eek: :lol: ... and thank God for your minutes in your cellphone :p

So it seems Nico is playing against Dorsch. It's a German but absolutely unknown here.

VAMOS NICO!! :fiery:

alina1981
04-03-2007, 09:18 AM
because he mostly played futures and challengers. he qualified in wimbledon last year and lost in the first round against malisse.
at river oaks he also plays doubles with benjamin becker!
I don't think that nico will face any problems by beating him!
(knock on wood ;) )

TommyB.
04-03-2007, 09:51 AM
Dorsch has an own website. :eek: He was a good college player in the US. It seems he made a similar way like Benjamin Becker.

But Nico should beat him. ;)

alina1981
04-03-2007, 10:23 AM
They both (Becker + Dorsch) studied at the Baylor University in Texas and were teammates over there. So Houston maybe is like their home-tournament. Anyway, Nico will beat him.
Does anybody know if Nico is playing doubles?

NicoFan

Thanks for the info. And I didn't know that Becker played college tennis in the U.S. You learn something new everyday. :lol:

I looked on the site and didn't see a doubles draw - they don't even have the OOP for today posted yet. It's going to be tough getting info. :sad:

kidnicky
04-03-2007, 01:20 PM
yeah I know that it's going to be a pain to get info from that site, I checked yesterday for the OOP and nothing but they had like a program posted and I saw that the 2nd round will be played between tomorrow and thursday so I guess that Nico should be playing tomorrow :shrug:

Thanks for all the info about the german guys Alina ;)

alina1981
04-03-2007, 01:43 PM
Benedikt Dorsch (GER) d. Danila Arsenov (RUS) 6-4 4-0 ret.

so Nico plays against Dorsch, probably tomorrow!

You're welcome, kidnicky!

kidnicky
04-03-2007, 02:17 PM
yeah I thought that too, he'd probably play tomorrow ;)

thanks again Alina :p ... it's always nice to be surrounded by people that knows about the game otherwise without all the people here in the forum that are always explaining to me the most simple things, I'd be more than lost :o :lol:

NicoFan
04-03-2007, 02:20 PM
From the schedule, it does look like tomorrow - but I keep checking - just in case. :lol:

Oh my ... this exhibition site is the worst that I've seen :o they almost cause me a hear attack I was checking today's results and I see this ... Dorsch def Massu 6-4, 4-0 ret :eek: I swear that I almost fell down from my chair!!! it took me like 30 seconds to remember that Nico wasn't playing today and that that result was the one from Dorsch but against the other guy, wich allow him to advance to face Nico now :rolleyes:

Stupid people!!!! they want to kill me or what?!?! :smash: :p

Anyway I checked the " OOP " for tomorrow and Nico isn't there but now I don't trust in this site anymore :o ... edit: forget it, the OOP is still the one from today :retard:

Second Round

(1)Dmitry Tursunov (RUS) vs Ivo Karlovic (CRO)
(7)Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo (ESP) vs Diego Hartfield (ARG)
(3)Robby Ginepri (USA) vs Mariano Zabaleta (ARG)
(6)Juan Monaco (ARG) vs (q)Dusan Vemic (SRB)
Benedikt Dorsch (GER) vs (5)Nicolas Massu (CHI)
Albert Montanes (ESP) vs (4)Benjamin Becker (GER)
Victor Hanescu (ROU) vs (8)Michael Russell (USA)
Rainer Schuettler (GER) vs (2)Jurgen Melzer (AUT)

There's an article on chron.com, we have half of the today's oop:

"The tournament continues today with four seeded players in action.
Russell, the eighth seed, leads things off at 1:30 p.m. against Victor Hanescu, who received a first-round walkover when Vince Spadea pulled out with what he said was a sprained ankle. Top seed Dmitry Tursunov faces Ivo Karlovic at 5:30 p.m."

I think Nico should play too.

kidnicky
04-04-2007, 01:14 PM

This site is really something huh? still no OOP for today :o

NicoFan
04-04-2007, 01:23 PM
Yesterday they posted the OOP around 1:00 NY time/12:00 noon Mexico-Houston time. So only about 1 1/2 hours before play began. :lol:

Sparko1030
04-04-2007, 01:39 PM
I guess they see no reason to let fans know what time players play.:awww: I hope Nico's match isn't the first since I'll be gone in the early afternoon.

kidnicky
04-04-2007, 01:58 PM
and not that late 'cause I have lessons today :p here we go again, depending on the time :ras: :p

I hope he's okay ... :sad: :sad:

Nico's isn't playing today? :awww: Well, at least I didnt' miss it. But I hate waiting another day :lol:

NicoFan
04-04-2007, 06:45 PM
Nico may have asked for the later date. Obviously I'm just speculating, but not sure how much time he got in on the clay last week because his grandfather being ill and practicing with Andre on hardcourts. He may have wanted another day's practice. Again just speculating of course. :lol:

kidnicky
04-04-2007, 06:51 PM
what we can't speculate is that the schedule and the site of this exhibition sucks :ras: :lol:

Sparko1030
04-04-2007, 07:06 PM
what we can't speculate is that the schedule and the site of this exhibition sucks :ras: :lol:

:haha: yes, no speculation there Kid!

You could very probably be right Nicofan-it would make sense for Nico to ask for another day considering the circumstances.

NicoFan
04-04-2007, 08:44 PM
I charged my cell phone this morning - so we're all set! :lol:

I'm going to call tonight around 7:30 - even though it's not posted online, they should have the OOP set by then for tomorrow - they have to give the guys some notice as to when they'll be playing the next day.

kidnicky
04-04-2007, 09:36 PM
great! the cell phone is ready :yeah: :p

they have to tell you the OOP :o :lol:

NicoFan
04-04-2007, 11:25 PM
Oh man...this sucks. :(

No one answers - you just get a message saying to leave your name and number.

They probably only answer during the day. And bet they won't have a clue what's happening on the court.

:sad: :sad:

Why does our Nico always go to these freaking small tournaments with horrid web sites and bad/no live tickers?

Oh well if it helps him get ready for Monte Carlo, it's worth being frustrated. But why couldn't he have just gone to Valencia next week? :bigcry:

Sparko1030
04-05-2007, 03:14 AM
:awww: It doesn't sound hopefull I must say.....well, we can try tomorrow at least. This really sucks though :mad: :lol: My cell phone is charging too, just in case. :)

kidnicky
04-05-2007, 03:32 AM
NicoFan you're very difficult to please :lol: you keep saying that he should play small tournaments and challengers and now you want him on Valencia?!?! :rolls: ... tranquila! :p

Anyway the organization of this exhibition sucks but for once in my life the chilean press is helping us :rolleyes: according to emol Nico is playing tomorrow and he was the one asking to the tournament to play tomorrow since he got a delay with his flight and he even had to change planes in Peru where he called to the tournament to ask them to schedule his match for tomorrow, otherwise it seems that he was thinking to come back to Chile, so I guess that Nico didn't have a good and nice flight this time :o

here it's the article in spanish ;)

Massú debutará este jueves en exhibición de HoustonMiércoles 4 de Abril de 2007
16:19
El Mercurio Online

SANTIAGO.- Un retraso en el vuelo que lo llevaba a Houston, que incluso lo obligó a cambiar de línea aérea en una escala mecánica hecha en Lima, Perú, postergó el debut de Nicolás Massú (55° de la ATP) en el torneo de exhibición River Oaks International, de Houston.

Massú debía jugar hoy con el alemán Benedikt Dorsch (185°), pero antes de continuar su viaje a Estados Unidos desde Lima se comunicó con la organización del campeonato, los que accedieron a suspenderle el encuentro para este jueves.

"Si no lo hubieran hecho, Nicolás estaba decidido a regresar a Chile y seguir sus entrenamientos acá antes de partir a Europa", dijo Manuel Massú.

El viñamarino retornará al circuito en el Masters Series de Montecarlo (parte el 16 de abril), donde si no corre la lista de inscritos debería jugar la fase clasificatoria, algo que no ha hecho en los últimos 43 meses de su carrera.

The next task is to find a doubles draw. ;)

Yeay that Nico is finally playing! :bounce:

But oh no about the flights. That means he's in a terrible mood, and who knows what his attitude will be like on court. I hope he tries - he really really really needs to get 2-3 matches on clay in before qualifying in MC.

Hopefully Nico won't have to qualify there - he definitely will in Rome and Hamburg because his ranking is lower now. But we won't know about MC until just before. Again, with Andy and James playing DC on hardcourt - they'll never go to MC. So just need 2 more.

only 1 if Roddick and Blake don't play, Nico is 3rd on the alternate list.
Maybe Fish ?

Thanks for the update - didn't realize Lleyton dropped out.

El Pescado is another possibility. :yeah: He should be playing Houston next week, and he will be at the US tie this weekend as the 5th man. I looked back at his record since 2003 to now - and unless I missed it, he didn't play in MC in any of those years.

kidnicky
04-05-2007, 01:24 PM
after I posted the article about the flights thing I knew that I shouldn't have done it 'cause I know that NicoFan would be worried :p ... actually I don't think that he is in a bad bad mood otherwise he wouldn't be playing doubles :lol:

so Vamoos Nico y Benjamin!!! :bounce:

Thanks for finding the OOP Tommy :yeah:

VAMOS NICO!!!! LET'S GET A WIN TODAY!! :fiery:

Nico's match is around 4:30 p.m. NY time. So when I get home from work around 6:00 p.m., I'll call down to Houston. Hopefully someone will be around so we can find out if Nico won or not. But I'm not really hopeful that someone will pick up the phone. :sad:

kidnicky
04-05-2007, 08:23 PM
I know, probably he'd be playing right now but I don't have high hopes about finding results later ... we probably would know until the night :sad:

Yes we are Alonsofz! :rolls: AND WE WANT SCORES!!!!!

I suppose since its an exhibition, and a small one at that, they don't expect fans like us to be going loco waiting for scores then, Nicofan. :awww: :lol:

kidnicky
04-05-2007, 10:58 PM
I warned you about that posibility Sparko :lol: ... yeah and maybe it is a small tournament or exhibition but all the people around the world should know by now that we, the Nico's fans, are not like the rest of the fans, we need to KNOW ABOUT NICO!!!! and if we don't know we'd do the most incredible things to get what we want :angel:

sorry but I just finished to read HP again and I'm in that mood of feeling like doing a cruciatus curse to the people in that tournament :devil:

The web site stinks and the people don't even know the right score when you call! :lol: :lol:

Maybe the other score was his doubles match?

As long as he won, I don't care. :lol:

That's cool that he's trying a new racquet. Hope it helps. :yeah:

I do zap from one channel to the next. The movie channels that I have are my favorites. And of course The Tennis Channel. But the Speed Channel (racing) is good too). And Univision with all the telenovelas from Mexico is another favorite. :yeah:

I figured that's what he was doing.

Well...while Houston might be an "easier" tournament, our Lovely is going to be at Monte Carlo and will be our spy and will tell us how Nico is doing because of course we are worried about him between what happened in Miami and him being sad over his grandfather and just generally upset about the way the season is going. So better this way. ;) :lol: :lol:

If Nico wins, he'll play Dima who beat Zab 6-1, 6-1.

Now why couldn't Nico play Zab???

VAMOS NICO ALE!

kidnicky
04-08-2007, 06:21 PM
Because Nico has no luck NicoFan :rolleyes:

Hi Brahna and the rest :wavey: :p

and I have the same problem with MTF add that that I'm with a very very slow internet connection and you'd understand my frustration right now :o

VAMOOS NICO ALE VAMOS VAMOS VAMOOOOS!!!!!

It seems that Hanescu is still the fighter that Nico said once :rolleyes:

NicoFan
04-08-2007, 06:26 PM
They are still playing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The woman said she went out and watched it for awhile, and said it's a great match.

And supposedly it's on serve in the 3rd.

So...I'll call again... :lol:

FIGHT NICO FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!! :fiery:

kidnicky
04-08-2007, 06:30 PM
who is on serve?!?! :lol:

OMG I told you, that no matter what Hanescu's ranking is now, he is still a fighter just like Nico ... so whatever it happens this match was a really really good practice for Nico :yeah:

But now the advantage for taking the final is the russian that's resting right now :rolleyes:

VAMOOOS NICO FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!! :fiery:

p.s. didn't she tell you the score NicoFan??

NicoFan
04-08-2007, 06:32 PM
She didn't know the score - she said when she left they were on serve. :shrug:

This is good for Nico - but for his confidence, it will be better if he figures out a way to beat Hanescu.

And yes, whoever wins, has to play a very rested Dima who probably didn't have to break a sweat playing Zab. :rolleyes:

kidnicky
04-08-2007, 06:36 PM
they were on serve?!?! what the hell is that?!?! they're not playing doubles!!! :retard: :lol:

hopefully Nico will beat Hanescu, oh my poor Nico :hug:

VAMOS NICO FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!!!! YOU CAN DO IT!!! :fiery: :fiery:

This Zabala guy, not even to help Nico or Hanescu did he make at least 2 or 3 games :ras: :rolls:

What I love about it is that he was able to win in a tough match. Lately it seems that if it gets tough, he loses it and can't get back in. But he hung tough here and did it.

Brahna - I am ignoring her comment. :lol: I doubt the woman will say anything...but it would be funny if she did. :lol:

Kid - give it more than two hours. He'll have to rest for a couple of hours (plus there's the doubles final now), and it will take a couple hours to play the match.

kidnicky
04-08-2007, 07:19 PM
I knew that she was ignoring my comment ... don't worry I'll have plenty to say to Nico the next time and the best thing is that she's going to be there with me so NicoFan wouldn't ignore me that time :lol:

Thanks for the tip NicoFan, meanwhile I'm gonna watch a movie, I won't tell wich one is it otherwise you're going to laugh at me :tape: :p

Hopefully they actually will give him 2 hours of resting :rolleyes:

And Kid - you know that I will go hide while you talk to Nico just like I did in Toronto - hiding on the back bench. :lol: :lol:

I just hope it's not too much for him to play again. :sad: He had such a long first match.

No problema everyone. :)

But I'm starting to worry - the score isn't posted yet, and none of the Chilean press is reporting anything.

I don't trust them when I call so I wish someone somewhere would confirm it.

I'm going to call there after 7:00 NY time to see about the final.

I'm reading in cooperativa that it was that score and that probably he retired for a psysichal problem but that in the semis match Nico didn't play 'cause Hanescu didn't show up :confused:

En la cooperativa

Nicolás Massú abandonó en la final del River Oaks

El chileno vencía este domingo por 6-2 y 0-1 cuando se retiró de la cancha en el partido definitorio del torneo de exhibición frente al ruso Dmitry Tursunov.

El campeonato de exhibición River Oaks, que se disputó en Houston (Estados Unidos), tuvo una accidentada final debido al retiro del tenista chileno Nicolás Massú (55º de la ATP).



El chileno debió abandonar, presumiblemente por algún problema físico, cuando se imponía por 6-2 y 0-1 ante el ruso Dmitry Tursunov (24º).

Massú debía jugar en la mañana de este domingo ante Víctor Hanescu (622º) por semifinales, pero el rumano no se presentó y el chileno avanzó directo al partido de definición.

Tursunov, en tanto, venció en la ronda de los cuatro mejores al argentino Mariano Zabaleta (157º) por 6-1 y 6-1.

Nicolás Massú debería volver al circuito este próximo fin de semana para jugar las clasificaciones del Masters Series de Montecarlo, aunque su retiro de este domingo abrió una serie de dudas. (Cooperativa.cl)

04-08-2007, 11:23 PM
Nico played Hanescu - and someone posted the score in the exhibition thread.

The woman I talked to told me that she watched part of that match and that it was a great match.

I'm going to call down there - I tried a little while ago and was put on hold for a long time - I'm going to call again.

NicoFan
04-08-2007, 11:25 PM
This is what someone posted on the exhibition thread:

MASSU WON 3-6 7-6 7-5 against hanescu

I'm on hold again...

please people from the tournament!! answer to NicoFan!!!! :o

NicoFan
04-08-2007, 11:33 PM
I gave up - I'll try calling again in about 15 minutes.

Obviously the match against Hanescu was a tough match.

But he was beating Tursunov so easily...maybe he was cramping? But it's unusually cold in Houston this weekend - so it's not like it's hot or anything.

I'm so worried. I don't trust Cooperativa because they were wrong about the Hanescu match.

I have a friend that might have gone to the match - she said she would go today if Nico was playing - but she doesn't have a cell.

:bigcry:

NicoFan
04-08-2007, 11:35 PM
The official web site didn't post Nico's result against Hanescu on the results page, but it is on the draw page. So Nico did play Hanescu - Cooperativa was totally wrong on that.

I've to go home so I'll get online like in 30 mins, hopefully by then they already answer you and tell you good news and important news :awww:

He has to be okay is all that I want :sad: :hug:

NicoFan
04-08-2007, 11:58 PM
I keep getting put on hold.

I bet that they've left and put the wrong recording on.

There's no reason that their phones should be this busy after the tournament has ended. It's just a small tournament.

I guess we won't know until tomorrow.

This just sucks. I'm so upset.

Neither good comes from Texas...and this is no exception. :mad:

kidnicky
04-09-2007, 12:17 AM
oh and we can't even count that he was actually winning the first set and they retired ... I don't trust in anything of this :o

I hate this I hate it!!!! why do we have to always wait why why why!!?!?!? :sobbing:

NicoFan
04-09-2007, 12:23 AM
I checked the Houston Chronicle, the main newspaper in Houston - nada. :sad:

Nothing on terra or latercera. No update or correction on Coopertiva. I'm annoyed with them - they have Nico's dad's phone number - call it for goodness sake and get the scoop. :mad:

And I was going to call the Houston tournament because they might know - and the freaking site doesn't come up. :shrug:

It's getting too late to get any info - the best again would be the Chilean papers calling Don Manuel. Nico calls him as soon as his matches are finished. Don Manuel knows what happened.

This is so annoying ... and I'm worried about my pumpkin. :bigcry:

and it's getting worse, latercera says that he was winning 6-1 and what we know is that he was winning 6-2 :rolleyes: this is just unbeliavable :o

They only have his phone number to call him when they have the chance to bash Nico, why they would use it to get important info??? that's not the use that they should give to have a connection with Nico's dad :mad:

NicoFan
04-09-2007, 01:00 AM
Okay...Cooperativa corrected the info about the Hanescu match and put this as why our sweetie retired:

El chileno debió abandonar, por un problema muscular.

Does that mean cramping?

kidnicky
04-09-2007, 01:03 AM
a muscle problem ... but again this means nothing for me 'cause it could be cramping or it could be another thing and they didn't say in what muscle or in what part of daaaaaaaaaaamn!!!! :mad: WE NEED MORE INFO!!! :bigcry:

I'm so desperate that stupid ideas are crossing my mind, probably NicoFan would know what I'm thinking now :o :lol:

04-09-2007, 01:08 AM

I just noticed they added this on Cooperativa:

actually the same thing says in other sites, but actually is that they don't even have the slighest idea of what happened today in the freaking tournamet :mad: so stop reading that NicoFan, in one site I read that he'll be back for Monte Carlo and in others are saying what you add.

I can't believe this shit I can't believe that nobody can tell us what actually happened :ras:

I only want to know that Nico is okay, is the only thing that I want to know :sad:

04-09-2007, 01:17 AM
Brahna is right - too late for today. No one is probably there - it's Sunday and Easter to boot.

How we'll know if it is serious or not is if he goes straight to Monaco ... or goes home to Chile.
