I've lost him, he isn't playing anywhere next week?
I just found him as the top seed of Poitiers future http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/332/mds.pdf To find a rythm it's nice but he has to win this even if there is some young and quite talented belgians guys. The tournament MD starts tomorrow and Nico plays Rochette first round.
He lost and with a bagel in first set He will play Athens next week and then should prepare his short clay season . I assume he will play Bordeaux and we hope a MD WC for RG even if there are only 6 given by FFT and 3 are quite sure with Seb, Ouanna and Rufin finally I doubt about it.
I think it's good that he focuses on his best surface now, to get back into the top 100. QF loss was disappointing, but he won doubles in Joburg and should be in good shape for Athens. Hope he gets further there, than in Joburg, although his win against Lu was good. Especially after his tough first round losses against Mannarino and ERV.
