I've just met Nico in Washington, DC and I have to say that he is one of the nicest people I've ever met! He just finished a long and tough practice session and he was still willing to stop and talk and take a picture with me. Really nice guy!

aw this sounds fantastic!!! i saw him in braunschweig and he was talking to fans and giving autographs all the time, so he really is unbelievably nice! unfortunately i wasn´t brave enought to go to him for a talk, esp. as i dind´t have an idea what to talk about, i´m just too shy ! was it the first time you met him by the way?

I also met him in Amersfoort after practice and I asked him a picture after his doubles match. He was really nice all the time, but I didn't talk to him, because I didn't know what to say. It was just so weird that the player I've always wanted to meet just stood before me after waiting on him for 4 years.

After the match there was also a really funny moment, a lot of girls wanted to take a pic with him and he saw that whole group when he walked away after my picture and he just looked at me with a face that said "Oh my god, do I have to walk past them? "

I was also in Braunschweig at the challenger and had a really funny chat with him one day. Some weeks before that tournament I wanted to find an ecuadorian paper in the web to keep better "in touch" with him. So I typed in a Spanish-speaking search-engine "diarios ecuadorianos" ->ecuadorian daily paper. The search-engine gave me "diarios ecuaTorianos" (well, I typed the T now big to emphasis it). And after one practice I told him:
"Nico, I don't have a tennis-related, but a language-related question."
"Ok."
"The land is Ecuador with a D, but the adjective is ecuatoriano with a T. Where does the T come from?"
"Hmmmm. Good question.......
hmmmmm.......really good question......"
"I ask it, because I looked for an ecuadorian paper in the web."
"Hmmmm. Good question, cause it's really Ecuador with a D but ecuatoriano with a T........
really good question........I cannot answer."
"Don't mind about it, I will take it as it is."

Later I asked that question on another forum and learned that there is no rule about why the letter is changed.

Ok, it was not the first time I met Nico in flesh and I must admit, I really like him, even if he is not my #1 favorite player. But he is a good friend of my favourite. Vamos Nico in Montreal!!!

Where do you live Bamby? Maybe there's a tournament/challenger there somewhere.
I began visiting tournaments in 2003, Rotterdam and 's Hertogenbosch in Holland. In 2004 I visited Rotterdam, 's Hertogenbosch and Hilversum and this year I visited Rotterdam, 's Hertogenbosch, Arag World Team Cup (Düsseldorf, Germany) Scheveningen and Amersfoort.
And I only saw Nico in Amersfoort, every tournament I hoped he would come, but he didn't. So when I found out about Amersfoort I had to spend the money I saved, because I heard Amersfoort wasn't a really great tournament, I didn't plan to go there .
Amersfoort was really far away from where I live, it was 2 and a half hours by train and bus. But all the tournaments in Holland are quite far away, but I don't mind travelling to see my favs .

Cool, I really want to visit the grand slams someday .
I'm pretty lucky, because I live like 20 minutes away from Germany, so I can go to tournaments in Holland and the tournaments in Düsseldorf or in another city that's not too far away.
I hope you get to see Nico someday!

I had a thought, that just occured: The Ecuadorians play their Davis Cup-playoff in Austria. Maybe that would be an opportunity...Although I had a look, and the venue will be quite near the slovenian border.

I really want to go to a DC weekend when Ecuador has to play, but when I do I'll make it a little holiday in Ecuador . I don't think they will play against Holland sometime soon, so I'd better start saving .
