Good luck to Kiwi :bigclap: !!!! In my opinion, he could reach the semis, but I thought that too when I saw his Indy and LA draw and we all know what happened there.

Maybe this will be the tournament in which Nicolas will gain momentum this summer :)

Your strange feeling is correct Neely. Nicolas withdrew. He would have played Arnaud Clement but was he was replaced by lucky loser Richard Bloomfield.

I guess he isn't quite over his illness. Let's hope he will be ok for next week.

Maybe he will give an update on his homepage soon. *hint, hint*

Or maybe Karine can give an explanation. Maybe she got Nicolas so drunk on her birthday that he couldn't play :p

Someone else can start the thread for Montreal, I seem to be bad luck for him right now... I shouldn't even bother going next week the way I'm feeling right now.... :sad:

The ATP draw sheet lists 'respiratory illness' or something like that as the reason for his withdrawal. Hope he's well enough to head to Montreal in a few days. :hug:

Mary- I'm sure Nicolas will be there in Montreal. It's an important tournament so I'm sure he will make every effort to make it. By that time, he would have had 2 weeks to recover from his virus. Unless he has a virus similar to Justine Henin (which I seriously doubt) he will play next week.

He is already in Montreal. So even if he doesn't play, he will be there training some what around the grounds. When I was there 2 years ago, they posted the practice schedule at the hotel, so it was easy to pin point the practice times. He normally practices very early.

Don't worry, you will see him. Besides, find Karine on the grounds because she tends to know exactly where Kiwi is, usually at Starbucks :p You could hang out at the player hotel and hope to see him there (if you like to hang out in hotel lobbies-not my cup of tea but if it hinges on you seeing Nicolas for the first time, I say go for it).

Yea I dont know I find it weird to like sit in a lobby waiting for someone... That's too personal for me lol... I did that with *nsync,,,, not anymore :p

But yea I'm just like paranoid lol ... meh. I'll see him :p I doubt I'll have the balls to go up to him if I had the chance though... My friend and I were saying how he could be standing right next to us and we probably wouldn't say anything, but hey -- thats why I'm going with some kids from here on MTF cuz I know they wont let me do that ;)

Hopefully I'll have some good stories for y'all when I get home... You guys know I'm gonna do all I can to get all the Kiwi for you guys I can :p

:hug: Thanks :)

I arrived in Washington Dc on monday,I only saw him in the evening cause I thought he wasn,t there.He acme to me,we kissed and he was asking me how I,m doing..I'm like who cares,what about you? He started to talk about his illness.Then he told me what I was doing anod I,m like.they lost my luggage! He started to laugh and laugh and said you know I would NEVER put anything in your luggage..lol.So he asked about my birthday and I told him that itr was tomorrow (august 2nd) and that I was turning..30! then I was like..it is SO bad.Again he started to laugh and said to me:you know,I haven,t see you in a week and it shows cause I haven,t laughed a lot..How sweet is that.Then came ANOTHER coach.I know him,still he introduced us but he said I know her..lol.They left for dinner asked if I wanted to come,I said NO cause I was waiting..for the lugggage! ON my birthday at 9:am he didn't see me but i saw him leaving for practice,he had told me that he would tRY to play on wednesday.Anyway I stayed at the pool all day long,talking to people,playing with Max Minx's kid..lol.A group of people told me to come for dinner with them,I said fine.I was waiting for them,I didn,t see Nicolas,he grabs my waist turned me around and I was like oh hi..lol.He smiled nad said happy birthday,he kissed me.I'm telling you,if i don,t get his virus,i don't know who will! he started to amke jokes about me being 30 and I was like do you see white hair? and he said maybe you need a coloration cause I do see black roots! LOL.He asked about my plans and I told him that i was doing out with those people.He said Oh,ok cause he was going out to eat with 4 players.We went outside and talked about 10 minutes about our lifes,what he wants to do after tennis,me,my job,etc.Then his pals came and he left with another kiss,smiling.On august 3rd,I have a message at the front desk..him,telling me that he left cause he was not feeling good enough and that we,ll see each other in montreal and hopes to come to my coffeeshop!

That might be it. I was surrounded by 'thirtysomething' age people in Indian Wells and I may have just put you into that group. What drama that whole trip was, I may never go to that tournament again.

Why do you want to look like a poodle? Your long hair was just fine on you.

Thanks for the report Karine. You have had the worst luck in losing your luggage.

Nicolas has been a sweetheart to you. You lucky girl!

Happy belated birthday :bdaycake:

Thanks to all of you for wishing me a happy birthday.I found it difficult to turn 30 and even Nicolas asked me why and I was like,you just DON'T understand,you are a guy,you don't get it..and again he started to laugh! lol.Yes I look like a poodle cause I have VERY short hair now and it is curly because of the humidity.I don,t want to get into the details why I lost my hair but it was tragic and Nicolas knows about it and even said that it goes with my personality.Yes he has been very sweet to me.We did have fights..lol.Well you know,he,s german and I'm half italian so! lol.You know I STILL don't have my luggage tonight and I have stuff that I need in it!!! I told him that I would put my stuff in his luggage to go to Cincinnati and he said..I don't think so,they,ll look in my luggage and find make up..LOL!! And that STUPID luggage is huge and red..but I need it! lol oh yes I forgot to say,I did see him today at the Stade Uniprix because it is like 5 minutes from our coffeeshop.He was going to see the doctor again and they were taking players to go see the casino tonight and he said that he might go.he told me that he has problems understanding the people speaking in french here! lol.oh and he stopped shaving,his hair is pretty long..still he looks good.And I don,t know if it is luck but we usually don't talk about tennis.I'm just not shy around him,the Kiwi on court is NOT the Kiwi in real life.But I can tell you this,he loves it when people cheer for him..so don't stop,I know I won't! I'll try my best to report what is going on in montreal.I'll try to find Mary..lol.

first off, i am having withdrawl... i havent been able to watch any tennis OR post to my fellow KIWI fans!! I JUST found out that i got an A on my statistical output project and a B+ on my final i took yesterday...what does that mean?? I AM OFFICIALLY a college graduate!!YAY! sorry anyway...

kiwiteami sounds like you and Nicolas just ought to get married...that might be the only way you'd see him any more than you already do!:) haha. I'm so jealous. Kiefer made me laugh just by watching him on court and his goofy antics... i cant imagine how hilarious he must be in person. Lucky you! Ok so there are pictures somewhere? and you think you've seen me in them????? where r these pics?? (or are you not thinking of me??) I am relatively tall, with really straight long blond hair (natural too, so it probably looks almost white cuz of the sun-- I might look a little funny) i am going to post my RCA champ pictures on my online album so you might check and see if ur in any of 'em... i might've caught u considering where you were sitting. its www.community.webshots.com/users/beccakharris

Yes it was you,I'm pretty sure of it.You had a ponytail no? i was in the first row like in the center.But I saw you.Yes,marry him,yeah right! And leave my home,I don't think so.I went 7 years to get my Masters and now I teach at Mc Gill University here so,I'M happy here,he should move here..lol.So ANYWAY,I went to see if he was there he had already practised at 9am! I was at the hairdresser at that time.Near my coffeeshop,I saw Taylor Dent..lost! lol.If you are wonderring how I can get in? Well I have LOTS of contacts with people working for Tennis Canada here and in toronto! I'll be at the tournament tomorrow VERY early.Tonight,they told me that there is a party at the restaurant Chez Le blanc,don't know if he's going.And NO,I'm not going.He better rest to be in shape for this tournament.Agassi is already here.I have plans to go out with pals tonight,don't think that he'll be out,usually at 9:30pm he is already in his room.BUT the MOST important thing is..I HAVE MY LUGGAGE,it is back home..safe! lol

Congrats on graduating college :worship: I was so happy when I graduated college. It took me over 6 years to graduate. I went from business school to architecture/interior design/art history. I'm still paying off my student loans 8 years later!

I got a job 2 weeks after I graduated and have been with the same firm ever since working minimum 50 hour work weeks. However, I've worked hard became a project manager with the 3rd largest architectural firm in Austin and I'm just 30. I've helped designed some famous athlete's homes who live in and around the austin area, so it's been fun :D

I just need a vacation and I will finally get one in another week. I wish I was going to Montreal instead but Cinci was much cheaper for the working class ;)
