great comeback Nico

he was 5-7 *0-3 and he saved 3 bps

beat the "cuate" tomorrow :bounce: :rocker2:

08-02-2008, 09:17 PM
Congrats Nico! Hold!

08-02-2008, 09:20 PM
:woohoo: NICO!!!! :woohoo:

He should be getting some confidence back with these wins-esp comming from behind to win! :yeah:

08-03-2008, 03:06 AM
did he actually won?!?!?! :eek: unbelieveable?!! I left the score just like Felipe said 'cause I thought that he was done and that I was jinxing him and he came back! :bounce: :bounce:

Oh my ... I know I know, when I saw Santiago had won his semifinal match I started thinking that I'd be such a bitch if Nico would win too ... what the hell! :rolls:

VAMOOOS NICOOO!!! LET'S TAKE THE TITLE!!! :fiery: (I swear that I will sign my national athem and kiss my flag after Nico wins tomorrow :lol:)

08-03-2008, 03:12 AM

Center Court
Matches start at 10.20am
N. Massu vs S. Gonzalez

followed by
S.Gonzalez/A.Qureshi vs D.Silva/C.Zampieri

Vamooos Nico!! :fiery:

08-03-2008, 03:17 AM

Wow, great comeback from Nico, but he should've won it in 2 :shrug:, at *5-6 he DFed at 30-30 :o, and when later he was 5-7 *1-4, as Felipe said, and 15-40 :eek:

Vamos Nico, he should beat Santi :rocker2:

08-03-2008, 10:56 AM
well done, Nico :cool:
yeah, it's time to take the title...:devil::devil::devil:

Vamos Vampiro!!!

08-03-2008, 01:46 PM
Finally a real Massu match. ;) Take the title now!!

08-03-2008, 03:40 PM
Wow...he lost in straight sets.

Well, good tournament, but surprised he lost to Gonzalez. :shrug:

I was thinking that he proved this week that he can beat the guys below him, but that's not the case. :sad:

At least he'll move up in the rankings about 10 places.

08-03-2008, 03:42 PM
:sad: Nico lost 6-4,6-3.

:hug: for Nico, but a big :yeah: to him for doing so well. Take this success and go and kick some butt in Bejing!!! :rocker2:

08-03-2008, 03:56 PM
Strange score, it's just Santi González... Nico has much better stokes than him :shrug:

Anyway, vamos Nico in Beijing :rocker2:

08-03-2008, 04:36 PM
wow! I never thought that he could lost against Santiago, this is strange :shrug: ... anyway hopefully this week will help him a lot to be ready and try to do something good at the olympics :yeah:

08-04-2008, 03:17 AM
this is depressing... how in the earth he lost to that clown (sorry kid) :sobbing:

08-04-2008, 09:58 AM
damn..why did he loose?... :sad: :sad:

anyway, he did well.. :angel::)
