Does anyone knows anything about nicolas almagro? He was a qualifier in hamburg masters but was out on the 1st round. Played an impressive game
and get to rattle coria and nearly sends coria home at the first round. Currently 100++ at ATF ranking but I really believe in this guy's talent. Best of luck for nico :wavey:

06-21-2004, 03:10 PM
I used to think that he would only play some futures in Spain and I was really suprised to see him playing Coria in Hamburg! He was nearly to win!
And at RG he was playing Kuerten as I remember and it wasn't an easy match for Guga ;)
I haven't seen his game yet, but I belive he may be a great player soon! He's only 18 now...

07-12-2004, 08:13 AM
Yes you are right ;) nico got talent and he is very relax and cool too :cool:
plus some impressively quick serves. He doesn't do alot of groaning in matches which i like. Lets keep an eye on nico.

07-14-2004, 05:42 PM
i met him in stuttgart this week and he and his coach are very nice...unfortunately he lost first round against squillari but i think he's got a lot of talent and promise

07-21-2004, 06:54 AM

12-06-2004, 09:34 AM

12-09-2004, 02:39 PM

12-12-2004, 05:55 AM
YAY!...thanks Emilita :bigclap: :bounce:..

02-01-2005, 01:38 PM
hey guys,
here are some pics of Nico from the AO

the rest of my AO pics can be seen at:

02-03-2005, 02:40 AM
hi! guys....I like Nico,too

He's going to play Gonzalez in Vina. It will be a tough match...but let's cross fingers for him

And Thank you, emilita for your pics :)

02-11-2005, 12:48 PM
hey guys...Nico's into the quarterfinals of Buenos Aires after beating Zabaleta in 3 sets in the second round. it's a great result for him! Now he plays Acasuso which will be another tough match, but hopefully he can win! VAMOS!

02-13-2005, 01:40 AM
Yes Emilita he's into quaterfinals :bigclap: which is really great. I know he plays in buenos aires after watching eurosportnews that day that he beat zabaleta. But i was wondering whom he'll be playing in quaterfinal. I'm so busy with my termpaper and exams these days i'm hardly able to browse the forum.
thanks Emilita for the info and omg the PICS.
I've searched everywhere but even gettyiomages dont have them.
VAMOS nico!

02-13-2005, 02:21 AM
So he doesn't make it to the semis but its ok he'll be playing Acapulco next.
Hey there Ponytail! Thanks for joining in nico's fan thread. Keep it coming ok.

02-13-2005, 10:46 AM
actually he's playing in Costa do Sauipe, Brazil next week (Acapulco is the week after)...he got into the main draw and he plays Santiago Ventura first round (the same guy he played first round in BsAs) so I think he'll be able to win. I like Santi too, but in this case, I'll go for Nico.

02-14-2005, 02:43 PM
Thanks for the info emilita. is so much easier with u in this thread!

02-15-2005, 09:27 AM
hahaha well unfortunately he lost 6-4 4-6 1-6...shame cos he'd beated Ventura last week...and also, he took the first set here but then seemed to drop off. Oh well...onto Acapulco now. I won't be able to update you while he's playing there cos i'll be away...sorry!

02-15-2005, 03:04 PM
its ok i'll scramble my way to get it myself ;). Nico should have enough time to freshen up i hope and win more matches heh.onto acapulco now VAMOS!
i think nico needs some cheer from his fans...

VAMOS nico...hablo muy poco español pero le deseo todo el la mejor de Acapulco! :wavey:

02-16-2005, 10:23 AM
no sabía que hablabas un poco español! muy bien! :yeah:

02-17-2005, 10:32 AM
HAHAHA...poco poco only!

02-28-2005, 01:15 PM
Nico's going to be the sparring for the Davis Cup! He left for Bratislava with Costa, López and Verdasco from Barcelona yesterday! This is a great opportunity for him!

03-02-2005, 01:27 PM

03-13-2005, 09:37 AM
as u guys know, Nico's not playing Indian Wells...but he'll be doing the qualis in Miami...hopefully he can get through, but it'll be tough

03-21-2005, 01:47 PM
Nico's seeded 5 for the Miami qualis and he plays Alex Kuznetsov of the USA in the first round!

03-21-2005, 02:14 PM
Go alex!! :D should be a nice match, and a match where alex has a chance.

03-21-2005, 02:16 PM

03-21-2005, 02:30 PM
Well, i am a fan of both players so it doesnt matter

03-22-2005, 11:59 AM
Nico beat Alex 6-4 6-4 and now plays Takao Suzuki for a spot in the main draw

03-23-2005, 10:48 AM
Should be a great match! another one where i like both players, so whoever wins ill be happy :)

03-23-2005, 12:56 PM
he won 6-1 6-4! which means he's into the main draw and he plays andreev first round...suerte!

03-24-2005, 02:54 PM
he lost to andreev in a third set tie break (14-12) :( oh well...good try anyway! now onto Casablanca

03-26-2005, 04:43 PM
I never knew Nico had a thread!!! :lol:

Shame he lost, will he play Stuttgart again Emily? I'm sure you and your sources will be able to find that out! ;)

03-27-2005, 09:05 AM
he'll play Stuttgart as long as his ranking lets him get in!!

03-28-2005, 08:04 PM
Great, thanks!!! I saw him there last year, but I don't speak any Spanish, so didn't talk to him or anything! Can't wait to see him there, hope all the chicos will come! ;)

03-29-2005, 10:09 AM
oh yeah...he doesn't speak that much english lol...but it's getting better. i think most of the chicos will come back to stuttgart...they always play there! :bounce:

04-02-2005, 02:04 PM
Nico's playing Lars Burgsmüller in the first round of Casablanca!

04-05-2005, 08:35 AM

04-08-2005, 01:43 PM
he lost 3-6 6-7 to Puerta :( now he plays Monte Carlo qualies

04-09-2005, 01:12 PM
First round in MC qualies, Nico plays French WC Guillaume Couillard...hopefully he can win!

04-10-2005, 11:28 AM
he won 6-0 6-3...and now plays Guillerm Garcia Lopez for a spot in the MC main draw...I think they're actually playing now but i can't see any livescores :(

04-16-2005, 12:55 PM
Nico gets Feli Lopez in the first round of the Godó... :banghead:

04-20-2005, 04:13 PM
Nico gets Feli Lopez in the first round of the Godó... :banghead:
headbanger :(

04-21-2005, 08:00 AM

04-24-2005, 01:17 PM
and now we have another crap draw for Nico...Tommy Haas first round in Munich :(

05-01-2005, 11:18 AM
Nico's played 2 rounds of qualis in Rome and is now into the main draw!! (He beat Sabau yesterday and just now he beat Ventura)'s great for him...wonder who he'll have to play in the main draw!

05-02-2005, 02:32 PM
Nico's playing the first round in Rome right now!! he's 3-6 6-4 3-1 against Andreev...VAMOS NICO!!!!

05-02-2005, 03:14 PM
Well done Nico!! :banana: I'm sorry but I want Marat to get out of his slump, so I want him to win.... *hides in shame*

05-03-2005, 11:19 AM
haha it's ok!! let's just hope Marat gets to the second round!! if he doesn't maybe u can go for Nico then?!

05-04-2005, 09:55 AM
Haha it's going to be really interesting match to watch. can u imagine nico giving marat a hard time cause he is really good on clay and does not give up easily :lol: .but i agree with emily and hope marat win the match and on to win the title.
VAMOS nico and marat!! :wavey:

05-05-2005, 05:54 AM
Nico beat Marat 6-4 6-3!! I'm so very happy for nico :bigclap: this is a great boost of confidence for him. well marat was giving a hard time for himself but nico played better and he deserves the win.
The commentator at starsport has been comparing nico to nadal already haha..that was really cool :cool:

05-05-2005, 05:57 AM
He will meet Stepanek on 3rd round

05-05-2005, 05:59 AM
All the best for Nico!! VAMOS!!

05-05-2005, 12:16 PM
Well done Nico :) Now beat Stepanek !!

05-05-2005, 01:33 PM

05-07-2005, 05:35 AM
Well too bad Nico loses to Stepanek

05-07-2005, 05:41 AM
But he could've met Rafa :eek: if he was through though..haha..think of the prospect heh maybe some other time :D

05-07-2005, 06:33 AM
Nico will be playing against Robby Ginepri at Hamburg Masters today!!
Hope he'll beat Ginepri. VAMOS Nico!!

05-08-2005, 06:23 AM
yeah! he beat Robby in 3 he plays Mathieu...will be quite tough but hopefully he can get through!!! aupa nico!

05-19-2005, 11:21 AM
nico just lost 4-6 4-6 to acasuso in the second round of st pö's a shame, but acasuso was a pretty tough opponent on clay. at least now nico has some time to get to paris and prepare...hope he has a good draw there!

05-21-2005, 02:55 PM
nico's draw in RG is pretty crap...Kohlschreiber first round and then...FEDERER :banghead: oh well, mucha suerte!

05-22-2005, 02:00 AM
omg...let's just hope he'll give roger a hard time.
Go NICO Go!!

05-24-2005, 03:10 AM
I didn't get to see the match. how was the result? did he pulled through?

05-24-2005, 03:32 AM
I know..I WON he beat kohlshcreiber..HAHAHa.Well done Nico. GREAT!! emily prepares for the federer match. Its going to be great.

VAMOS nico beat federer next ok!! :banana: :wavey:

05-24-2005, 11:08 AM
haha yeah it was a good win for federer :scared: he'll be on chatrier. i don't get any tennis coverage on tv :( so u will have to tell me all about it haha...i just watch the livescores

vamos nico!

05-26-2005, 11:07 AM
well he lost in straight sets...but he pushed Roger to a tiebreak in the second set...and he even broke Roger's serve it wasn't too bad. he plays doubles later today with Monaco! vamos chicos!

05-31-2005, 08:40 AM
emily i don't get to see the live matches also only day to day highlights..what a pity.
but yeah as expected he gave roger a hard time hehe...

05-31-2005, 11:57 AM
awww totally sucks having no coverage...

nico's next tournament is going to be the Lugano challenger next week where, according to the current list, he's going to be the #3 seed! hopefully he can do well there! vamos nico!

06-08-2005, 11:06 AM
Lugano update...

Nico beat the Algerian quali Saoudi in the first round 6-3 6-0 and now plays Brzezicki. vamos!!!

06-09-2005, 03:14 PM
he has done well for a start ;) now vamos show Brzezicki the way out hehe..

06-10-2005, 09:56 AM
hmmm well he lost to brzezicki 6-2 5-7 4-6...that's a bad loss...he should have beaten him :(

07-19-2005, 01:01 PM
wtf happened? he lost 6-7 0-6 to Verdasco...

07-20-2005, 04:45 PM
Maybe Fernando played better at the time???? :shrug:

I mean, last week he lost to Fernando as's not such a big surprise I think.

07-22-2005, 01:01 PM
no i know, i wasn't expecting him to's just a funny he totally died in the second set. oh well...on to kitzbühel...

07-27-2005, 11:58 AM
nico beat andreev 6-3 6-2 to make it to the 3rd round of kitzbühel where he'll now face zabaleta! good luck!

08-03-2005, 07:39 AM
Nico beat Portas in 3 sets in Sopot...he now plays Nieminen who beat Puerta! It'll be pretty tough but let's see what he can do...

08-03-2005, 04:50 PM
I saw Nico in Sopot in his match vs Portas, he was getting quite angry I have to saw, he has got huge temper but it is cute :D
I took some pics, few are aviable here and the rest will be later in our shop. I'll take many more at the match vs Nieminen but I see it very hard, Jarkko is playing very well. Anyways I will also try to catch a training tomorrow, that is always better pics, but unfortunately it's not too hot here and no chance he will train shirtless :angtel:
Anyways, the pics are here:

08-04-2005, 02:29 PM
thanks for the pics olga! (what has albert done to himself?!)
yes nico has a very hot temper! he'll need to calm himself down a bit if he wants to succeed i think.
well, unfortunately he just lost to jarkko...but he was a break up in the 3rd set and he still lost it in a tiebreak...very annoying :(
i think he's playing the san marino challenger next so hopefully he can do well there...

08-05-2005, 01:27 PM
Yeah I saw this match, so unfortunate. He could win in two even bvut bit no luck at 5-4 and him serving. he got broken and in a result lost set, it really pissed him off. But he calmed down after a while and was even up one minibreak in tiebreak. MNatch of lost chances :( But many cool pics :D Here:

08-06-2005, 12:28 PM
thanks for the pics Olga!

08-24-2005, 09:11 PM
Nico in Sopot once again lol

08-25-2005, 11:03 AM
I also saw the match against Nieminen in Sopot and I must say he was bound to win. If it hadn't been for his week psycho he would have done it, I'm sure... Hope he'll improve this side of his, because he can play really good tennis.

08-27-2005, 03:14 PM
yeah hopefully...well he plays Carlsen first round at the US Open which could be a bit tough...hopefully he can make it through to the second round!!

09-01-2005, 10:06 AM
Nico beat Carlsen 7-6(4) 7-5 6-4!!! great result for him!! :yeah: he now plays Dent :scared: and I'm assuming he'll play tomorrow...mucha suerte!!! :bounce:

09-03-2005, 11:22 AM
well nico lost to dent but it was closer than i anticipated: 3-6 2-6 6-4 5-7...from what i've heard, nico had his chances to win the 4th set but played very badly at 5-5, which is a shame...but at least it was good experience for him to play on Arthur Ashe stadium...i think his next tournament is Bucharest in about a week's time.

09-05-2005, 10:12 AM
My name is "Carla"! I am 19 and I am French!
I like Nicolas Almagro!
it's my favorite player with Juanqui, Raf' and Nando!
I LOVE him since two years!

One of my pics with him...It was at RG this year!

I wish the best for him


Sorry for my english

Mi wev site for him:
and my forum:

09-06-2005, 05:13 PM
Nico Almagro is great, I saw him play against Carlsen at the Open...he is a really fun player to watch. The best part was watching him break Carlsen, and then run across the court, screaming and pumping his fist, it was really funny. I will definitely watch him again the next chance I get.

09-28-2005, 07:04 AM
Nico lost first round again :( this time in Palermo to Igor Andreev 4-6 6-2's a shame because he lost first round in bucharest too...and these are smaller clay tournaments where he should be doing well and improving his ranking. i hope this bad phase stops soon. he is playing doubles in palermo too though, which is unusual for him since he doesn't really like playing doubles...but maybe he's realised it may help him in singles too. he's playing with beto martin against galimberti and bracciali....hopefully they win!! vamos chicos!

10-09-2005, 11:43 AM
he's into the final round of qualies today in vienna after beating julian knowle yesterday, so hopefully he makes it into the main draw

he's also playing doubles with robredo

10-11-2005, 02:12 PM
well he did make it into the main draw and then promptly lost to the austrian quali eitzinger 6-7 2-6 :(

but he won in doubles with robredo so that's good for him

10-13-2005, 01:44 PM
nico's vienna venture comes to an end...they just lost in doubles to knowles/nestor (no surprises there) 3-5 1-5

he's not down on the lists to play madrid because his ranking is too low, but hopefully he gets a wc into the qualies. i wonder if he will play doubles there too

10-15-2005, 10:50 AM
he plays hernych first round at madrid'll be tough...but maybe the homecrowd can get him through
11-07-2005, 06:10 PM
but he won in doubles with robredo so that's good for him
He's friend with Tommy so he must be a nice guy... Hehehe ;) No, I never got to see him play in reality, but from what I've heard, he plays very well !

11-08-2005, 09:19 AM
He's friend with Tommy so he must be a nice guy... Hehehe ;) No, I never got to see him play in reality, but from what I've heard, he plays very well !

well he can play well...but he still needs to mature a lot on the court. he has had a bad year so hopefully 2006 will be better. for the rest of 2005 he'll just be playing 2 challengers (in helsinki and luxembourg)...hopefully he does well there!
11-08-2005, 05:29 PM
Well, he's only 19 right ? He's got lots of years to improve and show that once more, spanish tennis is really good !

11-09-2005, 10:17 AM
yeah...he's just turned 20...he needs to change his attitude a bit and mature more on the court, but hopefully he can do that in 2006. and i also think he should play more doubles at tournaments to give him more practice
11-09-2005, 04:24 PM
Well, 20 is still young. Obviously, Rafa is not even 20 that's he's alrady #2 but Rafa is special. And we should not forget the other spanish guys !

11-13-2005, 08:56 AM
nico is seeded 3 at the helsinki challenger and plays uros vico in the first round...hopefully he can do well here. vamos!

11-14-2005, 12:27 PM
Vamos Nico :banana: !

11-18-2005, 06:49 AM
seems like Nico withdrew from the tournament :sad:

11-18-2005, 08:31 AM
yeah...not sure why waiting to hear back as to what happened. it's a shame because he really hasn't played as much as he should have recently...he needs to get his ranking up before AO. hope he will be able to play in Luxembourg next week

11-19-2005, 10:55 AM
ok...have just found out that nico's injured and he won't be playing luxembourg either. in fact, he won't play again in on to 2006 now i guess!
11-20-2005, 01:36 PM
What kind of injury ??

01-07-2006, 07:57 AM
sorry didn't realise i hadn't replied to this message! it's a knee injury, but he is getting better.

there only needs to be one more withdrawal from the Aus Open (which i'm sure there will be) for Nico to get into the main draw so it looks like he'll be coming to Australia after all! he pulled out of Adelaide qualies but i think he will come to Melbourne. i am trying to book some flights for him and his coach right now!!!
01-13-2006, 02:22 PM
;) He'll be facing Igor Andreev for his first round in AO... tough one ! But VAMOOOOOS !
01-17-2006, 09:14 AM
Poor Nico, he lost in straight sets... :cry:

01-24-2006, 11:14 AM
This week Nico plays in Santiago de Chile and in the 1st round he faces Juan Martin del Potro. Vamos Nico :woohoo:

01-26-2006, 06:38 AM
He defeated JMDP :woohoo: 7-5 6-3

In the 2nd round he faces Mexican Santiago Gonzalez. Vamos Nicolas :yeah: !

01-31-2006, 08:51 AM
well he lost in the quarters of that challenger but plays today in Viña...against Ramirez-Hidalgo. I think he lost to him in like Palermo or somewhere last year so hopefully he can get revenge this time!

01-31-2006, 08:54 AM
btw 3 pics i took of nico in melbourne...

02-04-2006, 08:20 AM
thx Emily :kiss:

toobad he lost against Ruben :sad:

02-23-2006, 09:27 AM
hey guys, nico's into the quarterfinals of costa do sauipe...he beat sa in the first round and saretta in the 2nd round and now plays nicolas massu. i think he can win if he plays well
02-23-2006, 01:41 PM
He beat Saretta ? So he cud have met Juanqui... Tssss !! Anyway, good win, I'm happy for him, hope he can do better than a quaterfinal ;)

05-06-2006, 09:42 PM
TMS ROMA news:


Rising Spanish star Nicolas Almagro opens preceedings in this year's qualifying event at the Foro Italico. Nicolas will have fond memories of Rome after his breakthrough performance last year, when he came through the qualifying event to take down one of the top seeds, Marat Safin.

His run of form continued over the last 12 months and he has been one of the fastest risers in the ATP rankings.

A natural clay court player like all Spaniards, Nicolas is this year seeded one in the qualifying event and will not be expected to face much resistance from Italy's Flavio Ciplolla. The number two seed in qualifying in also a Spaniard, Alberto Martin, who takes on Italian wildcard Thomas Fabbiano. Serbia's Novak Djokovic is the number three seed.

05-07-2006, 05:33 PM
Almagro will face Massu in R1 :sad: ;) Anyway, here's the info! ;) (MD complete) and (OOP)


MD Complete

Bye, :wavey:

05-08-2006, 10:19 AM

05-08-2006, 05:11 PM
Almagro defeat Massú 7-5 6-4! :yeah:

05-09-2006, 02:27 PM

05-10-2006, 11:09 PM
Solid win for Nico over Acasuso 6-4 2-6 6-4. :yeah:

Now take out Davydonkey!

05-11-2006, 03:02 PM
sheesh poor nico sure has a tough draw at this tournament!! great wins so far over massu and acasuso (neither of whom are easy opponents on clay) and now davydenko!!! :scared:

and then, if he happens to get through that... FEDERER! :banghead: :hysteric:

suerte nico!

05-11-2006, 06:09 PM

05-12-2006, 03:58 AM
Has anybody seen the clay court rankings for this year?
Nico (97 pts) is in second place :) only behind Rafa (160 pts)
Massu is close behind with 95 pts

05-12-2006, 04:44 PM
Federer won the match 6/3 6/7 7/5
but Nico fought impressively today :armed: that's for sure
it was a tough match for roger ;)

05-13-2006, 01:50 PM
BUGGER! he was soooo close

but have to give him credit for pushing roger all the way and not just freaking out and losing would have been a great experience for him

he's pulled out of hamburg to rest...and then should be playing Pörtschach the week after...

05-16-2006, 03:11 AM
Alex Corretja says: «Almagro tiene potencial de sobra para ser 'top ten'» ;)

05-16-2006, 12:04 PM
interesante!! yo tambien lo creo

it's a pity he pulled out of hamburg cos he could have done well there since roger and rafa aren't there

05-28-2006, 08:35 AM

I saw Nico @ RG, he played a set against Gilles Simon at Benny Berthet, too bad he lost 3/6... I was at the front row, very close to him, his game is impressive !

06-03-2006, 09:01 AM
disappointing loss for Nico to Blake...I thought he would be able to go further at this tournament given his form going into it :(

but he's still in the doubles with albert portas i think

06-05-2006, 03:03 AM
Nico must be popular even without his own forum because he has a number of different threads that are for him :eek: I know one is in French so that would have to remain separate, but I think I would join the others together :unsure: A moderator can do this for you, if you request it. I thought Nico would defeat Blake also :sad:
Maybe when he starts winning even more he can get this own Forum :)

06-06-2006, 09:24 AM
yeah I also thought about getting a separate Nico forum, but I don't know if they'd give it to us just yet...we might have to wait until he does a bit better and gets a few more fans who write regularly.

It was a shame he lost to Blake, but i'm not sure if he was 100% fit...judging by the walkover in any case, i didn't see the match so i can't comment.

anyway, hope he does well in his next tournaments

06-23-2006, 11:07 AM
He will draw Ancic in R1! :eek: I think Mario is the favourite,but I smell this could be a tight match! :)
06-23-2006, 03:10 PM
This is so unfair...

07-19-2006, 01:10 PM
2006 Stuttgart
he behaved pretty pathetic

07-23-2006, 08:13 AM
what did he do?

08-31-2006, 06:25 AM
nico had some tough draws this US hardcourt season, it's a shame for him. i watched his match against Ljubo in Toronto on French tv and in the first set he played pretty well. haven't seen him play since but he's lost to ferrer twice, including at USO, and wawrinka.

good luck to him and Nando in doubles...I think they'll play tomorrow, as they're not on the oop for today

09-13-2006, 05:04 PM
what did he do?

:haha: Maybe a similar incident to what he did against safin :shrug:

I am interest to know too? The guy reminds me of loro in some ways :lol:

09-30-2006, 10:18 AM
have you info about his injury of yesterday?

09-30-2006, 03:45 PM
he got injured yesterday? so that's why he retired today?

i dunno what happened...maybe his knee is playing up again :shrug:

10-01-2006, 07:44 AM
just found out it's an ankle injury

10-16-2006, 10:08 AM
he lost to fish in the 2nd round of madrid qualies :( shame he couldn't get a wildcard into this tournament :(

10-17-2006, 02:34 PM
as i thought, he was pretty pissed off at not getting the wild card in Madrid (see article in Spanish below). Basically it just says that Nico spoke on Radio Marca saying he was pissed at Santana for giving Henman the wildcard ahead of him...he thought he deserved it as much as Tim and that, being Spanish, he thought he should have got it. So now he's going to keep working hard and try and get some good results. Good on him lol


Almagro: "Que Manolo Santana se atenga a las consecuencias"
Nicolás Almagro, tenista murciano que se quedó fuera del Muta Madrileña Masters Series de Madrid al recibir el británico Tim Henman una 'wild card' en lugar de él, amenazó a Manolo Santana, organizador de la prueba madrileña."Santana se ha equivocado y no me ha dado ninguna explicación por mi exclusión, por lo que se atenga a las consecuencias", dijo el jugador español.

Almagro, que entró en directo en el programa 'Directo Marca' de Radio Marca, explicó a Vicente Ortega que "creo que tengo los mismo méritos que Henman para haber estado en el Masters de Madrid, pero creo que yo soy español ... A partir de ahora seguiré trabajando duro seguir cosechando buenos resultados".

10-18-2006, 08:40 AM
It's common knowledge in spanish tennis that Nico has been always a bonehead , a real prick as person and a dirty player on court , and he keep proving it with that kind of comments.

" Que Santana se atenga a las consecuencias " is just the typical sentence of a person who acts as a bully , the same performance of a bully he showed with the linesmen in his match against Ancic at Wimbledon

A great talent wasted by his dumb head :silly:

10-21-2006, 06:29 AM
yes well here is a follow up article with santana's reaction:

Manolo Santana llama "niñato" a Nicolás Almagro

Manolo Santana, organizador del Mutua Madrileña Masters de Madrid, salió al paso de las palabras de Nicolás Almagro en la que protestaba por no recibir una 'wild card' y le emenazaba con "atenerse a las consecuencias".

"Me sorprenden sus palabras, pero la verdad es que es un claro caso de inmadurez. ¿Qué me atenga a las consecuencias de qué..? ¡Niñato! Yo no tengo ninguna polémica, pero él tiene que aprender a tener más respeto a la gente", sentenció Manolo Santana en los Micrófonos de Radio Marca.

"Almagro es un niño muy joven que tiene que aceptar que esto es un torneo internacional, hemos dado invitaciones a dos grandes jugadores y él todavía no lo es. Almagro tiene que demostrar que puede jugar mejor. No pasó la clasificación, y si mejor su nivel lo mismo la pasa el año que viene", dijo Santana a Vicente Ortega.

Respecto a que él no quiso saludar a Almagro el ex campeón de Wimbledón explicó que "él estaba jugando al futbolín con otras personas, y cuando me acerqué me dio la espalda".

Santan apuntó que él nunca ha tenido problemas con nadie en el mundo del tenis, mientras que Almagro esta temporada ha protagonizado varias polémicas en diferentes torneos.

i'll translate the main bits..

Santana basically said Nico was acting immaturely and like a juvenile and that he needs to show more respect towards people. He said that Nico is a young player who has to accept that Madrid is an international tournament. 2 great players were given WCs and he is not a great player yet. He had to demonstrate that he can improve because he didn't get through the qualies.

Then apparently at some point Nico ignored Santana (i didn't know this) and Santana said that Nico was playing a game with some other ppl and when he (Santana) came near, Nico turned his back to him.

Santana said he had never had any problems with people in tennis, whereas Nico has caused controversy in a few tournaments this season..

.................................................. ..............

i think nico overreacted a bit and i really think he needs to mature because otherwise he is not helping his cause at all. he is just making himself look stupid

10-23-2006, 09:16 PM
Nico said he came into the match with a lot of problems from the previous week still in his mind. I think he was refering to the argument over the wildcard.

10-30-2006, 12:22 PM
he just beat björkman in 3 tiebreaks in the first round of bercy. now he plays tursunov...hopefully he'll have a day off tomorrow to recover from this 3 hour match

10-31-2006, 05:54 AM
I always like his intense "piss off" looking! :aplot::lick::hearts:
IMO his backhand is a bit weird and inconsistent.I always think he has enough power,he doesn't need to pull his racquet too wide after his racquet touches the ball. :eek:

10-31-2006, 10:55 AM
Nico retired when Dima was serving for match. :sad:
11-01-2006, 01:20 PM
He left the court crying... Poor boy. Fortunately, Fer was waiting for him at the exit of the court...:sad:

11-01-2006, 01:42 PM
oh really? that's no good...must've been a bad injury then
11-01-2006, 03:14 PM
Well, he was already injuried on Monday, cuz he called for the kiné during the match, but he went on and won. But Monday's match was a big one, so I guess he was tired and more vulnerable then...

11-02-2006, 08:18 AM
yes, actually i thought they would have at least given him a day's break after his 3 hour match on monday :( i was pissed off to see he had to play again at 11am the next day

11-03-2006, 04:34 PM

Here's a pic I took of Nico in TMS Toronto06

12-03-2006, 06:15 AM
last thursday nico was in barcelona (sant cugat) with tommy robredo to launch their new dunlop racquet. they had lunch, spoke with press and had a little hit out.

he'll play the spanish masters in granada 15-17 december...and will start off his 2007 season in doha, auckland and then AO.

12-04-2006, 12:59 PM
Nico has been named the "most improved Spanish player" for 2006 by the press association APT (asociacion de periodistas de tenis). There will be a gala tomorrow where he'll receive the prize along with Robredo and Ferrer who also won prizes, and other RFET staff.


12-05-2006, 04:47 PM
Congratulations to all three, Nico, Tommy and David! ;)

12-16-2006, 12:08 AM

hmm he rolled his ankle in the last game too

Is his ankle ok?
I don't like hearing things like that this close to the start of the season! :speakles:

12-23-2006, 06:49 AM
Is his ankle ok?
I don't like hearing things like that this close to the start of the season! :speakles:

i haven't spoken to him or his coach since the spanish championships so not sure at the moment. will hopefully be doing so soon and when i hear something, i'll let you know!

01-14-2007, 02:40 PM
The draw for the AO's been announced and Nico will be playing Ginepri in the first round match. Not an easy draw I'd say, but Nico's seeded 32, so I hope he'll be able to pass this first-round test ;)

02-16-2007, 09:07 PM
Hi-I like Nico Almagro.Why there is not a separate message board for Almagro?
Good luck for Nicolas especially in clay season.

Well, I guess he doesn't have "enough" fans... Other players have their own messageboard because there were too many topics for them in the Spanish Armada section...

02-24-2007, 02:06 AM
You mean GGL has more fans than Almagro?? It could also be 'bad press'.

Anyway, congrats to Nico for making the SF of (the cursed) Buenos Aires tournament! The last Spaniard standing. :yeah:

Yeap, that's a good thing for him to have reached the semis :)

02-26-2007, 05:45 PM
Did anyone catch any of his matches on tv? During the BA tournament?

02-27-2007, 03:04 AM
:o Can't believe I haven't post in this thread before.

03-03-2007, 12:52 AM
:wavey: Hi Lee! What happened to Nico in his Acapulco QF? I saw a photo of him getting his shoulder massaged. Is he OK?

03-03-2007, 12:54 AM
I have absolutely no idea. I am not very good following tennis these days. :o

How are you?

Capitalizing on the huge public interest in the 2007 America’s Cup, held in Valencia, organizers of the V Open de Tenis Comunidad Valenciana sent four players to the port for an exhibition with a difference on Sunday.

One day after the finish of Act 13, which comprised fleet racing between 11 challengers from nine countries, Nicolas Almagro, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Filippo Volandri and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez all boarded two catamarans for an impromptu hit.

The 32nd America’s Cup is being held in Europe for the first time in 150 years.

The challenger selection series , which is called the Louis Vuitton Cup will take place in Valencia from April 16 to June 12, 2007. The 2007 America's Cup match will take place in Valencia between June 23 and July 7, 2007.
