Default HAMBURG: Keep The Fight Alive!!!!

I'll find a better title once we find out if Nico really will play or not.

He had such a tough week this week - lots of close long tight matches.

Maybe it would be better to skip Hamburg and go full guns into Austria?

What do y'all think???

Should he play or go lie on a beach and chill for a few days?

I guess it would depend on whether he would get points due to the stupid ATP ranking system in Austria or he would have to win it all to get any points.

Default Re: HAMBURG: Should Nico Play???

NO QUESTION ABOUT IT!!!!! it's obvious YES!!!!

NICO NEEDS TO KEEP THE FIGHT ALIVE (should be the new thread title )

he showed this week in Rome that he still alive, he still can play at the highest level...

Nico needs more 7 OUTS to get an direct entry in Hamburg

I like that title!!! I'll change it to that right now.

No1Rios - will our Nico get points when he plays Austria? Or will he have to win it all to get any points?

Default Re: HAMBURG: Keep The Fight Alive!!!!

hehehe, thanks NicoFan

well Nico needs to reach SF or better in Portschach to add some points

but 1st it's Hamburg... he dont defend points, he's in a good position to add more points... let's hope a good qualy draw and then a good main draw

Nico up to #51 next monday, according to Judio HE has the edge over Almagro, Nico has better results in the GS and MS and that's why he gain the edge between this 2 players with the same points...

my problem is.. if Nico dont play Hamburg... who will be his 18th tournament, other MM??? or they will give ZERO points for Nico in Hamburg????... you can ask Judio the expert of rankings..

I figured that for Austria. Stupid ranking system.

You'll have to ask Judio because I get confused over all these ranking things. I wouldn't know what to ask...

And 51 is good.

Default Re: HAMBURG: Keep The Fight Alive!!!!

Sounds from the interview in Cooperativa that Nico will indeed play Hamburg, but he says he has to see how he recovers but he has a good trainer.

And the poor sweetie sounds a bit discouraged that he was up in the 3rd set against Fernando and couldn't win. I knew it. Poor Nico... He says it difficult to get confidence so he can beat the higher ranked players.

Hopefully he'll be happy again tomorrow. He really played so well in Rome. Hopefully Gaby can get him to see that.

Nico derserves a rest but can't really afford that luxary right now it seems. I hope he doesn't get too discouraged because of his loss today. He's made so much progress....

Anyway, lets see another great run at Hamburg Nico!!!


VAMOS!!!

Default Re: HAMBURG: Keep The Fight Alive!!!!

so it seems that the best option would be to play Hamburg huh? .. well at least the qualifying entry list isn't as tough as it was in Rome so if he can get at least one good day of rest he could do some damage in Hamburg

the stupid ranking system doesn't know how to add points if you don't reach semis?!?!

I'll try to watch the video NicoFan, but I haven't download anything from terra so I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, at least not if nobody helps me with some instructions

Auf Geht's Nico!!! Keep the fight alive!!!

p.s. NicoFan don't worry, Nico feels better once he hits his head in the pillow so he'll be better tomorrow

Nicofan, Nicofan. What is that idea that Nico shouldn't play in Hamburg ?
Of course, he has to play. Now he begins to recover his tennis, that's not the moment to take some rest 2 weeks before the beginning of RG. He needs to win some matches to regain his confidence.

Because they showed the last part of his match against Fernando on The Tennis Channel replay last night.

Nico looked so tired. He really was on his last legs. I hated seeing him like that.

And then I thought how he had to fly all the way to Hamburg today and then play on Saturday, and I felt even more bad for our Nico and decided he should go sit on a beach for a few days with a margarita in his hand.
