Cakewalk? What match were those people watching? I don't like Roddick but even I have to admit that he wasn't making it easy on Nico. But, I always knew that Nico was the better of the two AND he's the better fighter.

I watched this match twice today and I can't imagine there being one better this week.

Vamos Nico!!!!

Me too!

But he said after the match with Andy that win or lose, he knew he was getting good court time in.

And he seemed really calm and determined during the Andy match so hopefully he'll be the same in teh Gasquet match.

Conditions are bad there though in Hamburg - its cold and rain off and on today. Ditto for tomorrow. Nico will have to wear a long shirt until his regular shirt. The people look like they're freezing in the stands.

Hope he just plays well and hope his ankle is okay, but with that said, I want some revenge here for those two losses! Revenge! lol!!! I'm not a big fan of Gasquet so really hope that Nico can beat him.

BUENA SUERTE NICO!!!

KICK BUTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Nico on TV and he lost to Gasquet in 3

I think the final result was 2-6 6-2 2-6. I was only aboe to start following the SB at the end.

I wonder if he and Gonzo will still finish their Doubles. They were a set up and 2 ALL yesterday

Nico choked again

Nico played a perfect 1º set, very aggressive in his shots ... And start the 2º set with a break and this was all

And Nico finished angry with Gasquet

I'm just so sad that I really can't post anything...

Though I am curious too why he was angry with Gasquet at the end. GAsquet plays a lot of head games with his opponents - does it to Nico, watched him try to do it to Rafa also in MC. Really dislike the guy immensely.

Hi guys - haven´t been here so much recently due to travels in Munich, Rome and Hamburg, but just wanted to say what a privelage it was to be in the stands to see Nico beating Roddick the other day. He played great and you should be proud of him. Sorry I was not at the Gasquet match today as I am going home tomorrow so I had lots of packing and other stuff to do, so I can´t give you a report on it. But if I hear anything I will let you know. Nico is fine though - his Mother and some of his family are here and he seems relaxed and happy over the past few weeks when I have seen him.

And believe you me - it IS freezing here in Hamburg I am from wet and chilly England so I´m generally used to the cold weather, but there is an icy wind here that we don´t get so much at home and I have been freezing since I got here last weekend.´

Bye for now.

Rosie - thanks so much for that - makes me feel so much better - I've been really really worried about him with his ankle. Glad he's happy and relaxed - again, I feel a lot better after reading what you wrote.

And it did seem so cold there - watched the replay of the matches last night and everyone looked like they were freezing! Too bad - seems like a very nice tournmanet with a good turnout of fans.

And jealous of you - wish I could have gone to all the clay court tournaments!

Well some good news in an otherwise terrible day for Fena and Nico.

The chicos won in doubles!

Its good for Nico because he needs court time.

Both things ... With himself because he can't run so fast (a lot of time Nico put his racket in his thighs) and with Gasquet for celebrate Nico's errors

Thanks for the updates Fergie - Nico shouldn't be getting upset with himself - he's doing so well coming back. Even the announcers were saying how hard it was hitting the ball for someone who has been out all this time. And he should look at Coria who was operated on after teh US Open and played in November of last year, and still he isn't 100%. And Guga. He should be very very very proud of himself. He's doing great! But I know that's hard for him (any player to do) - he probably wants so desperately to be back at 100%.

As for that awful man today - Nico s/b mad at him! Sounds like he behaved terribly. Cheering when Nico double faulted - that's poor sportsmanship.

I hope Nico never has to play him again...and if he does, I hope Nico kicks his butt!
