I shouldn't have looked at the news on vacation, because now I'm annoyed again. He's not looking for a coach?

And I don't see Brunswick on the calendar for challengers. I must be going blind.

From latercera.cl:

Nicolas Massú: "No matches can be won only with the name"

In its arrival to Chile, the viñamarino regretted enough its elimination in the "qualy" of Roland Garros, although explained to be confident in its recovery since "does a lot that did not have a positive gust of wind".

Contrary to what could think after its elimination in the phase of classifications of Roland Garros, the Chilean tennis player Nicolas Massú (121º of the ATP), arrived with good spirit to Chile, where will remain to its return to the circuit in the first days of June.

Despite its fall before the German one Daniel Brands (200º) in the "qualy" of the Grand French Slam, the viñamarino indicated to Radio DNA in the airport of Santiago that "I am tranquil. With a tennis match does not pass anything. I am playing well and I continue with many desires. Besides, time ago that did not have a so long positive gust of wind".

"When a type touches you that plays well, that blocks all your play, there is nothing that to do. It is a grief that passed me in Roland Garros, but that cannot be controlled", indicated the "Vampire".

According to their analysis, Massú explained that "to players that are 100 or 200 in the ranking one must win them, but I cannot arrive and to say 'I am Nicolas Massú' and to win, no matches can be won only with the name".

For now, the Olympic two-time champion expects the confirmation of his "wild card" for Beijing 2008, although his main problem is the continuity of his coach, that opted for leaving in pause still, since as said "I am well thus. Itself that have to sit down with Patrician (Rodriguez) to converse, but is not a theme that be in my head. Up to now only I have played well enough, but do not yet I have clear if I will change".

In the immediate thing, the viñamarino would be able to return June 2 to dispute the challenger of Furth in Germany, although would also be able to expect to the 9 for participate of the ATP of Warsaw (although is ten points was). At any rate, the possibility that return the 16 in the challenger of Brunswick still is open.

"No voy a apostar con el Feña porque siempre pierdo"

Hay hinchas de cartón que se van cuando quedan 5 minutos pa que termine el partido. Así se evitan el taco y llegan con su potito paradito intacto a la casa. Pero hay otros que aunque tengan un pedazo de auto se la maman igual, como Nicolás Massú, que llegó a ver al Everton con su viejo y su hermano Steffano.
Y no es por exagerar, pero el abrazo que se pegó con su family cuando terminó el partido fue parecido al que le dio al Feña González en el dobles de Atenas.

"Los que seguimos a este equipo hace mucho tiempo sentimos algo muy especial, nos pone muy contento llegar a esta instancia, es algo importante para todos", contó emocionado el Vampiro, quien ahora debe agradecer el haber quedado eliminado en la qualy de Roland Garros, pues "nunca en mi vida he podido ver a Everton en una final, será algo muy bonito".

Además, el Nico no se olvida que siempre lo agarraban pal tandeo hasta en el ATP por lo corneta de su equipo, el que con suerte ganaba un par de mochas por campeonato: "Hace muy poco peleábamos por no descender y ahora lo haremos para salir campeón".

SAN PELAO
¿El elegido por este milagrito? Simplemente, Nelson Acosta. "Debe tener algún mérito. Agarró al equipo y altiro lo puso en una final. Las palabras sobran", señaló el chiche de la Tía Sonia, quien al final del partido fue a saludar a la alcaldesa Virginia Reginato.

Y antes de irse a festejar, Massú admitió que tiene un desafío en mente para la final con el Colo. "¿Apostar algo con el Feña? Mmm, me gustaría, porque le tengo fe a Everton. Pero mejor no lo voy a hacer", dijo riéndose. ¿Se le hace? "No, nada que ver. Es que siempre que he apostado con él, Everton termina perdiendo...".

ITF da esperanzas a Massú de defender oro en los Juegos Olímpicos

PARÍS.- La Federación Internacional de Tenis (ITF) dio hoy esperanzas al chileno Nicolás Massú de recibir una invitación para estar en los Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing 2008.

"No hay nada decidido aún, pero claramente su condición de doble campeón olímpico juega un papel importante", dijo a la agencia dpa Barbara Travers, portavoz del presidente de la ITF, Francesco Ricci Bitti.

Massú, 123 del ranking mundial, conquistó el oro en el individual y el dobles de Atenas 2004, en la mejor actuación de la historia del deporte chileno.

Su descenso en el ranking, sin embargo, lo inhabilita para clasificarse directamente, ya que a Chile le corresponde sólo un puesto en individuales, posición que será para Fernando González, su compañero de dobles en Atenas.

La ITF decidirá de acuerdo al ranking del 9 de junio qué jugadores clasifican automáticamente para los Juegos, pero dispone de siete "posiciones ITF" (invitaciones) que repartirá "según criterios geográficos y de ranking", puntualizó Travers.

El comité de selección olímpica de la ITF se reunirá a fines de junio, durante el torneo de Wimbledon, para tomar la decisión.

El Comité Olímpico Chileno (COCH) y la federación chilena de tenis deben solicitar formalmente la invitación de Massú para que el jugador mantenga sus esperanzas.

Mardy Fish no quiere una invitación para Massú en Beijing


El estadounidense, que cayó ante el viñamarino en la final de Atenas 2004, dijo que si le dan un wild car al chileno, otros jugadores con bajo ranking o cerca del retiro podrían solicitarlo.



28/05/2008 - 15:01

El estadounidense Mardy Fish (39°) afirmó estar en desacuerdo con que el chileno Nicolás Massú (123º) reciba un wild card (invitación) para defender la medalla de oro en los Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing.

El oriundo de Minnesota fue justamente el rival del viñamarino en la definición por el título en Atenas 2004, donde el viñamarino sumó su segunda presea dorada tras la conseguida un día antes en el dobles junto a Fernando González.

Fish no se mostró favorable a que el "Vampiro" reciba una invitación para la próxima cita de los anillos, al señalar que otros jugadores con bajo ranking o que estén cerca del retiro podrían solicitar también un wild card.

En declaraciones a Radio ADN, sostuvo que "uno piensa que el campeón defensor podría acceder de algún modo, pero si tú abres esa puerta, le estás dando la posibilidad a tipos que después de cuatro años quizá están en el final de sus carreras, tipos que incluso pueden estar retirados y tal vez quieran jugar".

"No creo que sea necesario decir, sí, te permitimos jugar", añadió la tercera raqueta estadounidense.

Massú se ha mostrado esperanzado en volver a jugar en un Juego, sobre todo para defender el título ganado hace cuatro años en la capital de Grecia.

"El ganó ese juego y fue muy especial, así que si le preguntas estoy seguro que él no quiere dejar que esos recuerdos se vayan", apuntó Fish, quien no estará en Beijing.

La ATP definirá en las próximas semanas si le otorgará una invitación al chileno, que luego de ganar en la cita helena alcanzó el noveno lugar del ranking mundial, la mejor ubicación de su carrera.

Nadal: "Sería lógico que le dieran la invitación a Massú"

El español, actual tricampeón de Roland Garros, apoyó la opción del viñamarino de obtener un "wild card" para los próximos Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing.

28/05/2008 - 15:15

Contrario a las declaraciones hechas por el estadounidense Mardy Fish, el tenista español Rafael Nadal aseguró que Nicolás Massú es mejor opción para recibir el "wild card" de la ITF para participar en los próximos Juegos Olímpicos de Beijing.

Para el actual tricampeón de Roland Garros, el viñarino tendría que asistir a defender las medallas ganadas en Atenas 2004, ya que según aseguró a Radio ADN, "está totalmente en su derecho de hacerlo así".

"Tiene sentido, lo más lógico sería que se la diesen (invitación)", señaló el español, quien igualmente aclaró que "todo depende de la organización".

Rafa. I agree with him
Are Mardy and Nico trying to get the same wc though? Nico, as the defending champ should have the priority IMO.

Thanks for the article Lovley

Missed the first article-answered my own question.

A big fat too the Fish (and why did they have to mention he's from my home state??? He was only born here, didnt' grow up here ) Seems Mardy still has hard feelings about losing-thought he had matured a bit in 4 yrs but I guess not.

NICO WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE GOLD so get over it brat boy

EMOL

Mardi Fish apoya ahora la idea que Massú defienda medalla olímpica

Jueves 29 de Mayo de 2008
08:46
DPA

PARÍS.- El ganador de la medalla de plata olímpica en Atenas 2004, el estadounidense Mardy Fish, cree que su verdugo en la final de aquel evento, el chileno Nicolás Massú, merece una oportunidad de defender su presea dorada en los Juegos de Beijing.

Massú no está clasificado para acudir a la cita olímpica en la capital china a raíz de su bajo ranking -Chile tiene sólo una plaza y será para Fernando González-, pero para Fish alcanza el logro conseguido para que se haga con él una excepción.

"Se podría pensar que el defensor del título podría entrar de alguna manera", propuso el estadounidense, que no participará de los Juegos por estar anotado esa misma semana en el torneo de Washington.

El martes, la Federación Internacional de Tenis (ITF) dio esperanzas a Massú de recibir una invitación.

"No hay nada decidido aún, pero claramente su condición de doble campeón olímpico juega un papel importante", dijo Barbara Travers, portavoz del presidente de la ITF, Francesco Ricci Bitti.

La ITF decidirá de acuerdo al ranking del 9 de junio qué jugadores clasifican automáticamente para los Juegos, pero dispone de siete "posiciones ITF" (invitaciones) que repartirá "según criterios geográficos y de ranking", puntualizó Travers.

El comité de selección olímpica de la ITF se reunirá a fines de junio, durante el torneo de Wimbledon, para tomar la decisión
