lol Yeah, the quote is hilarious. Well, I don't know, I took a few pictures of Kubot and his coach 2 years ago and the only thing I can say for sure is that his coach was more photogenic Though maybe now he has a different coach.

To not stay off-topic, Nico was leading today 3/0 and then the Swede retired.

And a picture specially for Maria

I hope Irina had a safe trip to Tampere.

As for Nicolas, he should move to 64th place.

I'm not good at Maths, so I just estimated 65... I will see how close I was.

Anyways, Nico had withdrawn from next week's tournament due to left shoulder injury, but he hasn't got any points to defend until the US Open.

Ah, est-ce que je suis toute seule ici? C'est si triste sans Irina! J'espere qu'elle serait bientot de retour!

And I just realized I estimated Nico's ranking very well, he really is no. 65! I should get a better mark from Maths, it's just not fair that I have what I have with such talent

Well done Maria Personally I can never get how you calculate players rankings (though at the same time I've always been good at math ). Have you read latest news on Nico's coach?

Ouiiii, Irina est ici! C'est vrai que c'est triste sans Nico Il me manque, notre petit diable

I take the points he won and count them with the points he already has, but then I have to look at the players who are behind and in front of him and estimate if they'll also get some points or lose some so they will move somehow... So it's more a tip than Maths

No, I haven't, what's the news?

Ouais Mais la Finlande me manque un peu aussi. Et quant Ó Nico, je trouve qu'elles sont longues ses vacances, hein?

Yes, after all I got how the system works but I believe it hadn't been properly described in the ATP rules book - at least in the previous editions

Nah you should check the blog sometimes Well, actually the thing is that while in Tampere I visited the Spy Museum, got some useful tips and then was trying them at Frenchies So I've gathered some info and it looks like earlier this year Nicolas was working together with Roger-Vasselin with Nicolas Copin, then he really had to spend his RG without a coach and after some researches in June he decided to continue his collaboration with Olivier Soules.

Well, Nico seems to get the maximum of use from everything, and even when he has to change his coaches every several months and share them with other guys, he tries to learn something from everyone. Maybe this Soules is not too bad since Nico comes back to him, I don't know, but anyway it's not the perfect variant I suppose. Good on Nico that he is fine even on his own

C'est vrai, trop longues, ses vacances

Well, I check the blog, but everytime I do the same mistake, at first I open some photos and then I'm not able to focus on the text. I'll forbid it to myself next time, I promise

There's something about Soules I hope it won't be the same story as with Federer...he was perfect on his own, winning WImbledon and so on. When he started to employ these old guys (Roche, Higueras) as coaches, it went all bad

Maybe the two of us should fire Soules and pair up as Nico's coaches

Should I lessen the number of pictures there?

I need to check back for the picture of Soules, he becomes an important figure I think he was a middle-aged bald man with glasses

Yes, I totally agree that we two could pair up as a perfect coach for Nicolas. But then he would probably need even longer holiday

But it means we couldn't destroy him too much on the training courts

No, add more pics, I will look at them after I read the text as a special prize, really
