I'd like Nico to play Bercy of course but that's not the reason why I'd prefer him not to play the Petrobras Tour...
I really think that playing one or two tournaments of the Petrobras Tour would have been okay but not the whole stuff...

Massú recuperó las sonrisas con un sufrido triunfo en San Petersburgo -Cooperativa-


El tenista nacional Nicolás Massú (78º de la ATP) recuperó este martes las sonrisas en el circuito profesional al derrotar en un luchado compromiso al tenista ruso Teimuraz Gabashvili (103º) por parciales de 3-6, 6-3 y 6-4, resultado que deja al viñamarino en la segunda ronda del torneo de San Petersburgo.

Este triunfo le permite al segundo mejor tenista chileno dejar atrás más de tres meses sin conocer de triunfos, luego que la última celebración fuera el cada vez más lejano 9 de julio, cuando derrotó en el torneo de Bastad (Suecia) al ruso Evgeny Korolev.

De paso, consigue alcanzar la siguiente fase en un torneo del circuito profesional luego de sus dolorosos y tempraneros tropiezos en Amersfoort, Kitzbühel, Sopot, New Haven, US Open, Metz y el Masters Series de Madrid.

El viñamarino, pese a que comenzó perdiendo el primer set del match sacó a relucir su casi extinguido espíritu de lucha para dar vuelta las acciones y llevarse un triunfo que le permite sumar confianza en el certamen eslavo y para lo que resta de la temporada 2007.

El irregular servicio de Massú en el primer parcial le permitió a Gabashvili romper en el cuarto juego y tomar una ventaja insuperable para el chileno, que terminó cediendo las acciones por 6-3 en sólo 30 minutos de acción.
Tras el descanso, Massú renació y con un juego impecable comenzó a dejar atrás los fantasmas y tomar el control del compromiso. El representante criollo consiguió un quiebre en el segundo game y sólo le bastó sostener su ventaja para cerrar a su favor el segundo capítulo por 6-3 y alargar la definición para el tercer set.

En la manga decisiva ambos tenistas se mantuvieron firmes en su servicio, lo que vislumbró un apretado final de partido. Igualados hasta el octavo juego, la presión del chileno surtió efecto en el game siguiente, cuando logró romper el servicio del eslavo y quedar con la primera opción para llevarse el compromiso.
En el juego siguiente, a Massú le tembló la mano en los últimos juegos ya que sólo en el tercer match point que tuvo pudo superar al eslavo e inscribir su nombre en la siguiente ronda del certamen eslavo.
En esa fase el chileno enfrentará este miércoles cerca de las 10:00 horas de nuestro país (13:00 GMT) ante el letón Ernest Gulbis (47º) quien superó al sueco Thomas Johansson (38º) por 6-2 y 6-1. (Cooperativa.cl)

Massú: "Creo que puedo ganar mañana"

SANTIAGO.- Nicolás Massú (78°) tuvo que batallar intensamente para ganar su primer partido en más de tres meses. Lo hizo este martes ante el ruso Teimuraz Gabashvili (103°), a quien dejó en el camino en la primera vuelta del abierto de San Petersburgo (Rusia, carpeta bajo techo, un millón de dólares).

El tenista chileno se impuso por 3-6, 6-3 y 6-4, en una hora y 58 minutos de partido, en un resultado que no sólo lo clasifica para la segunda ronda del certamen ruso, sino que de paso lo coloca en la senda para recuperar la confianza en sí mismo.

"Fue un partido difícil, creo que me costó acostumbrarme a la cancha", comentó Massú al final del encuentro en el que le bastó con conseguir un quiebre más que su rival. Mientras el local había roto el servicio de Massú en el cuarto game del primer set, el viñamarino rompió en el segundo game del segundo parcial. Al juego siguiente escapó de un 30-40, en uno de los pocos contratioempos serios que vivió en ese parcial.

Así llegaron al tercer y definitivo set, en el que fueron muy parejos hasta el noveno juego, donde el chileno hizo la diferencia y provocó el quiebre. Luego vaciló ligeramente Massú, pero en el segundo match point consiguió cerrar el partido a su favor.

Respecto de la carpeta bajo techo en que se juega el abierto de San Petersburgo, Massú comentó que "es un tipo de superficie muy duro, y acá está particularmente difícil poder afirmarte bien, especialmente cuando te tienes que desplazar", analizó.

El tenista viñamarino ligó este tema con la importancia personal que tiene ganar partidos en un momento como el que vive. "Para fui es muy bueno haber ganado hoy, me va a ayudar, así que ojalaá pueda ganar el mayor número de partidos en esta cancha, para acostumbrarme y para ganar en confianza", manifestó.

Muy en su estilo, cuando le consultaron por su rival de mañana, a eso de las 11.30 horas de Chile, Massú señaló que "con Gulbis va ser un partido duro. El juega bien en canchas rapidas y cubiertas. El es un chico joven y que a veces juega muy bien pero otras no. Tiene un buen saque pero tengo confianza que puedo ganar el partido", resumió.

Jueves 1 de noviembre de 2007 -El Mercurio -

ESCÁNDALO POR LAS APUESTAS:
Markus: "Nunca supimos nada"

El ex técnico de Nicolás Massú dice que nunca escucharon nada sobre un supuesto arreglo del partido contra Marcos Daniel el año pasado en Acapulco.



Cuando Nicolás Massú perdió contra el brasileño Marcos Daniel el año pasado en Acapulco, el partido tuvo cierta historia. El chileno venía de semanas muy intensas y tras ganar el título en Costa do Sauípe derrotó el martes al argentino Carlos Berlocq en la primera ronda del certamen mexicano.

Como estaba cansado, el campeón olímpico pidió jugar el jueves contra Daniel, pero le dijeron que era imposible, porque el torneo terminaba el sábado. El viñamarino tuvo que presentarse igual y perdió por 6-4 y 6-4 después de haberle ganado al gaúcho en Viña del Mar, Buenos Aires y Costa do Sauípe.

"Traté de hacer lo que pude, pero la verdad es que estaba cansado y no tenía las fuerzas habituales. Tal vez hubiera cambiado un poco la historia si hubiera tenido un día más de descanso", comentó Massú en esa ocasión.

Ahora, con la denuncia de Daniel de que le ofrecieron 20 mil dólares por perder (medios brasileños informaron que la ATP citará a declarar al actual 158º del mundo), el partido adquirió otra connotación, pero Gabriel Markus, el técnico argentino que dirigía a Massú en ese momento, descarta de plano que el chileno haya tenido algo que ver en el supuesto intento de arreglo.

"Nunca escuchamos nada de nada. Nunca supimos de eso y Daniel tampoco nos comentó nada al respecto. Yo me enteré ahora porque leí algo, pero no le di mucha importancia, porque se dicen tantas cosas últimamente", opinó Markus desde París, donde está dirigiendo al español Fernando Verdasco.

"Pero nadie podría pensar mal de Nicolás. Ni siquiera he hablado con él, pero lo que me acuerdo es que 'Nico' estaba cansado física y mentalmente, estaba nervioso y fastidiado, porque la cancha estaba mala, y por todo eso perdió", agregó.

Massú, en tanto, está de vacaciones en Europa y no se ha referido al tema, pero se molestó cuando vio su nombre relacionado.




(I had to post this article but I trust 100% Nico no matter what.)

NicoFan is this true???? ... I don't trust the press and since you know a lot about Fer V you should know this, and if it's true and you haven't told me, I'm going to kill you

I knew about this like 3 days ago, and it's Daniel's statement and nothing to do with Nico, besides he lost that match so nothing to worry ... everybody decided now to start talking about this subject it seems

I didn't know that Gaby was coaching Fer!! I've been so busy that I haven't been any to follow anything now.

And figures...Fer is playing great right now. Should have known he has a good coach behind him. I'm glad for Gaby - Fer is a nice guy and his family and gf also seem wonderful.

I read about what Marcos Daniel said - I found it a bit odd. Why didn't he say something at the time? He waits 2 years. And yeah, Nico lost so no big deal. Besides he wasn't the one the people approached. It's not his fault.

are you sure? I told you to go and find out if that was true or not ... remember that we can't trust on the press :retard: ... so go on and ask Carlita if it's true

oh well, I've to confess, I was the one calling Daniel to offer him money to lose against Nico, I was on my way back home that day so I needed to be sure to get that win for Nico, but stupid Daniel didn't accept my money

I'll go over right now, Senorita Kid! Your wish is my command.

And about Daniel.

But poor Nico. I can imagine that he's upset. Even if he has no control over it, it would be upsetting seeing your name in some gambling thing.

Senorita Carlita is investigating it right now.

She said that Gaby was in St. Petersburg too.

So kind of sounds like the Chilean press must be right for a change.

that sounds interesting, but tell to Carlita that we need confirmation ... I need to know if it's true or not

Kid - your answer.

Fer V. worked with Gaby a bit, but he is still in the process of making a decision on who his coach will be.
