Nicolas is currently playing in a 125K challenger in Germany. And guess what, he is in the final where he'll play Oscar Hernandez. They have a 1-1 H2H with Nico winning at the Australian Open last year and Oscar winning in Santiago.
Nico has won against many great clay court players in this tournament. I really hope it gives him confidence!
1r: (7)Albert Montanes 7-5, 7-6(4)
2r: David Sanchez 7-5, 6-4
QF: Florent Serra 6-4, 7-5
SF: (q)Sasa Tuksar 2-6, 6-3, 6-2
Let's hope he wins tomorrow
