Re: Keeping the faith in Kitzbuhel

So sad he lost but he fought to the end and I didn't think he would have that much in him after yesterday. So proud of him and his fighting spirit.
You're the best Nico. As far as I'm concerned getting to the semis here is as good as winning the whole thing when you're still coming back.

And really, the last 3 tournies he's been in he's made the the quarters in one and the semis in two (if memory serves me right) Any player would be happy with those reslults even if not injured! Love ya Nico!!!

Re: Keeping the faith in Kitzbuhel

Nico lost 6-3, 3-6, 5-7.

But he fought so hard!!!

I am soooo very very very proud of him.

Great tournament - on the comback trail, and he gets to the SFs!

No shame in losing to someone like Verdasco.

Lots of to Nico though because I know he's bumming...he loves Kitz. I think though after a couple of days, he'll realize how great he did!

Such a warrior - just love this guy!

Re: Keeping the faith in Kitzbuhel

From the atp site - what Nico had to say after the match with Lapentti:

Massu: ďItís difficult to play in this heat, 46 degrees inside a centre court. Itís concrete all around you so itís even hotter and it was hard to breathe. I fought against this throughout the whole match. It was tough to find air and I was lacking oxygen throughout the match.

ďAt the start of the third set, I started to feel some cramp. Iíve never had cramps in my life so it was scary but luckily I won that game. I tried to play shorter points from then on and luckily the cramps didnít continue.

ďIíve had a tough year with my health. It was tough as I was playing the best tennis of my life and then I got injured so it was tough. Iím feeling well physically now. To win in a tournament where I have great memories, Iíll always come back here as long as I can. My game suits Kitzbuhel well. I have great memories here and I hope that can continue that this year.Ē

On Verdasco tomorrow: ďI hope I can perform tomorrow as I have been. He plays pretty quickly but Iíll try to impose my game. Itís important to rest first but my desire is there. My desire to get back to the top is there so I think that will favor me. Mentally Iím very strong and very positive. From the three hours we played today, I was strong the whole match, thinking how I could win which is very positive as itís not easy to do that.Ē

Re: Keeping the faith in Kitzbuhel

Alright Nico!!! You've made it to the semifinals. It is so awesome how well you're coming back. Get some rest tonight-good thing Fena is in Miami so you won't be out celebrating his B-day!

And Buena Suerte tomorrow against the other Fernando! You are a winner Nico plain and simple.

I hope so Alonso....I can't help it, I worry about Nico..lol! And hard when I can't see the matches and can only follow them on the computer. I don't want to see him injured again.

I hope that he wins tomorrow too, but only if he can do it without hurting himself. That was a tough match today.

Re: Keeping the faith in Kitzbuhel

So so so very proud of NICO!!! What a win!!!!!!!!!



Hope he's okay here though - they said that he didn't look well. I'm kind of worried about him because they said he fell twice? Those that watched it, do you think he's okay??? That's the most important thing.

Hope he has something left for Verdasco tomorrow, but either way, Nico deserves a big because he was a warrior out there today.

This win really helps his ranking situation - I figured that even if he loses all the Olympics points, with these 110 points here in Kitz so far the worse he can go down to after Cincy is about 52-53. Is that right Alonso?
