Capdeville had chances in both sets...

Did Massu circle the wrong mark in that game? the replay made it look like the ball just clipped the line...

Capdeville blew it. Had 4-2 in the first and 2-0 in the second...

Yeay for Nico!!! :woohoo:

He's a bit rusty - hasn't had any real match play this year (can't really call the match against Nole a match).

So good for him to be able to pull it out. :yeah:

Isn't he actually from Vina itself? That makes it worse. Maybe they were comparing his AO performance unfavourably with Gonzalez's, which is unfair to say the least.

From what I've seen, the only reason for the crowd could be that Massu was trying to intimidate Capdeville from the start. Not sure.

nah... it was the typical "cheer-for-the-dog" thing that happens everywhere. I don't know why all the fuss about it. It wasn't like they booed Massú anyway...

i think the crowd was booing massu and cheering for paul cause of bad AO loss of nico

the people in Chile is too stupid when a chilean sportsman loses badly and is having a bad moment they dont cheer for him and sometimes they start to dislike him... that's could be nico's problem now...

but if massu starts to win again the people will cheer for him again and will be again a hero like in Athens 2004, see gonzo today arrived in Chile today as a hero... all the people talks about him, all the media is arround him... it's all about gonzo here in Chile, but i expect the same thing when gonzo start to lose

for me Massu's still an idol for me, I have memory, i still remember his heroic run in Athens, 2 GOLD MEDALS IS JUST A MIRACLE, AMAZING!!!!!, you can still saying that nico bh sucks, sometimes gets crazy on court... but for me still an incredible sportsman

VAMOS NICOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Yes, he is from Vi˝a. I mean I know a lot of the Chilean fans here and there were pissed off with that Djokovic effort, but they didn't boo him.

It's like that though, if he plays well, then they will be for him again.

Yeah right.

So what you are saying is that if Nico plays Fernando this week, the crowd will support Nico because he's the underdog???

:haha:

Yeah right - hell would freeze over before that ever happens.

NO, I never said that.

You can't compare the same situations. Capdeville is (at least that's joe public percepction) several classes lower than Mass˙. Mass˙ would never be an underdog to Gonzo. In the eyes of the country both are (or were) part of the elite. The fact that one of them is skyrocketting while the other is struggling heavily since a year is another story.

I don't know what match you guys saw. What I saw was a relaxed match with medium attendance, with some people cheering for Capdeville but more a bit of a joke than anything. And at the end when Capdeville drowned the people enjoyed Mass˙'s points.

And about Vi˝a:

1. In February, Vi˝a is another city. Roughly 40% of the attendance there is thanks to residents.
2. I'm not from Vi˝a del Mar but I wouldn't be surprised if people there start getting fed up of Mass˙. Better said - not of Mass˙, but of "The Mass˙'s" mainly because of his mom


and last thing, I seriously doubt the AO match has something to do with this, that was kind of expected loss from Mass˙

you'll see that in his next match they will all support him loudly. Too bad he won't be getting a night match (very improbable with Gonzo playing on wednesday and thursday his two RR matches)

im waiting for that semifinal rematch on saturday night

but it's hard to see a gonzo out of gas winning 3 matches this week
