Our poor Nico lost 3-6, 2-6.

I don't like Gaston at all anymore...

But Nico had a great tournament - I'm very very very proud of him.

He's fighting so hard to come back.

Love ya NICO!!!

I just watched the match live on Eurosport - it looked very match like this was just "one match too far" for Nico - he seemed a little slow and sluggish on court - I guess it will take a while to get his match fitness and conditioning back to normal.

One thing that worried me a little................he seemed to be holding his back a little - as though he had some sort on injury However - he didn't call for a trainer or have a medical timeout so perhaps it was just a little muscle spasm caused by tiredness.That's what our commentators were saying and I hope they were right. It's been a great tournament for Nico though - congrats to him And I like Gaston so I hope he goes on to win this tournament now.

Well, I'm not disappointed because our boy is fighting to recover his best shape and make a semifinal in a important tournament is a big step, I'm so proud of him

Keep up fighting Nico, the sweet days will back soon

And I really hope that Nico doesn't have a big problems in his back

Thanks for the update Rosie - poor sweetie

Sounds like Nico was tired. I hope he doesn't have a problem with his back, but I've seen him do that when he was tired so hopefully its just that.

Hopefully he'll rest for a couple of days - probably will go back to Barcelona to train next week while DC is going on, and then head to Amersfoot.

This tournamnet was definitely a step in the right direction - some of the other tournaments he was losing to people that he normally wouldn't have lost too - this time, he beat them. Next step, getting back to where he's competitive against the Gaston's of the circuit. Which he will. Just will take some more time.

Like Rosie said our Nico looks a little slow and his backhand doesn't work in all ... Nico has problem with the long points, I think he was a bit tired

Like everyone else I am so proud of how Nico has done in this tournament! He may not be back to his previous level but he surely is on his way back! Very happy and positive about how he will do these next weeks. Oh yeah, and the black is the best yet IMO! Now, if Addias had a black and sleeveless shirt...

The Gstaad site said that Nico had a have a shot before the match in order to play - depending on the version something with his leg or hip.

I hope its nothing serious.

Poor Nico.

I've looked everywhere to get an update but nada.

So if anyone hears anything, let us know.

He can't be hurt again. I feel like crying.

Points question:

How many points does Nico get for getting to the SF here?

I don't know how many points Nico gets but according to Judio's provisional ranking post he'll be ranked 29th on Monday.

And I do hope too that it's nothing serious I did not like the reports on the Gstaad site, but it's strange that there is no information on it at any of the Chilean sites.

This is from the ATP official site:-

Points and Money Breakdown

W 35 €58,700


F 24 €34,500


SF 15 €20,330


QF 8 €11,960


R16 3 € 7,025


R32 1 €4,130

SO I guess that means Nico will get 15 points for losing in today's semi-final.

Rosie - 15 is for the champions race. Was thinking about the regular ranking.

Olimpo - I think its strange too that there's nothing on the Chilean sites. They're usually so good at reporting things, but not on this. And that's good Nico will go up to 29.

He needs all the points he can get having to defend the 400 Olympics points and the points for winning Kitzbuhel last year - don't know how many that was. I usually don't care becuase I don't really care where he's ranked - I'd like him no matter where he was in the rankings. But he has soooo many points to defend here that I can't help be concerned about it now. And I think he is too because he's talked about that if he goes down too far in the rankings, he won't be seeded in tournaments and that makes it harder in the 1st and 2nd rounds.

Sorry Nico - I'm not so good at Entry Rankings because they alter every week in accordance with last year and this year's calendar and it's far too complicated for me - Judio and Nitsansh are the experts here!!!

Anyway- here is my translation of an article from "La Tercera" today,and the link for those who prefer to read it in the orignal Spanish:-

http://www.tercera.cl/medio/articulo...876508,00.html

Massú recognised that to play three matches after so much time has passed was hard.

Nicolas Massú: "It was clear that that my body needs to be stronger"

Nicolas Massú was not content with his campaign in Gstaad, but yet was calm, because his aim was to begin to get results that have been lacking this season for the country's Number 2 player. And also he has learnt lessons, mainly in his match yesterday against the Argentine Gastón Gaudio.

"It is a long time since I played four matches in the same week and I noticed that. My muscles and my body are still adapting to hard matches, and today made it clear that my body needs to be stronger. One is never satisfied, no matter how big an advance there has been during this week ", said the man from Vińa de Mar. He got to the semifinals in Switzerland and tomorrow will be in position 28 on the Entry System (he was 30ş), amd will have equal points with the Spaniard Carlos Moyá. Massú, sho was injured for three first months of the year, added that "I leave here sad to lose, but I must see the positive side; I am playing better every day, but my body lacks match fitness. Anyway what happened last week is a great advance. Thank God that I can begin to think that I'm regaining my level little by little, both my tennis and my physical strength, and this allows me to be calmer mentally. In the past it has been very difficult for me to concentrate ", explained " El Vampiro ".

After the match Gaudio said, "Today, Nicolas was not the same player that he was last year. Her is still recovering from his injuries. I ad,it I thought the match would be more difficult". Today Gaudio will play in the final against Stanislas Wawrinka (69ş ATP).
