Unhappy Nico out for 2/3 months

I have just read in the Ecuadorian press that Nico will be out from the ATP Tour for 2/3 months because he contracted Hepatitis A over Christmas.

In El Universo it says that he must have caught it during his time in Brazil for the exhibition matches in early December and once he was in Buenos Aires with his coach to prepare for the new season, he felt ill and had to spend a couple of days in a clinic there.

Now he is home in Guayaquil but feels so physically weak that he is just in bed at present. Evidently he is having some more tests later this week (today maybe) to see the future prognosis.

It means that he will definitely miss the Australian leg of the tour, as well as the South American clay court leg at least. He may or may not be right enough to play in Miami but hopes to definitely be back able to play by the Davis Cup in April (when Ecuador will be against either Peru or Brazil).

This is a big blow for Nico because he had hoped to get gain some points in the early part of the year (Jan-March) since he has little or nothing to defend before April.

I am sure you will join me in wishing Nico all the best - I even caught him online earlier this week and wished him a Happy New Year!..

My first reaction was: Oh no!!! The second one was: Mierda!

For those who don't understand the Spanish word: Maybe it's better you don't understand it . I immediately thought of him saying he wants to gain points in Ranking in the early season. Get well soon, Nico!

Thumbs up Nico Get Well Soon Package

Jule..... better not ask .....

However I can tell you that Nico was "shocked" when he was given the news on what his diagnosis was. He is at home in Guayaquil and being fussed over by all the females in his family (my words but he did agree with them).

I have a feeling that boredom of his quarantine is already setting in and that he will be online a lot of the few weeks as he is unable to socialise until his "incupation" period is over.

I am however, intending to send Nico a "get well soon" package to Guayaquil just as soon as I have thought of some things to put in it so if any of you would like to add a card or get well note/letter (only positive stuff), please feel free to email me at my website address "sara@lapentti.freeserve.co.uk" for my address to send cards etc.

The only up side as far as Im concerned is that it will mean I can get some more sleep during the Australian Open (with less players to have to watch)..

Regards

Sara V

Lightbulb Greeting Idea

Hi

Ive had a rethink on the package front and I thought that rather than getting you to send greetings or cards (if you want that is), I thought it might be easier if I opened up a new thread where you could leave your Greetings to Nico and then I can just print out any relevant pages for that thread as and when I send my package.

What do you think? I thought I would put a deadline of say end of Monday 9th or Tuesday 10th - to give a few people a chance to write something? I don't want to leave it too long because I would like Nico to get the package while he is recuperating (and it will take about 7 to 10 days for a package to get to Guayaquil).

Jule - I presume you may or may not wish to send something...??

Great idea Sara, thanks for organising it.

I will be adding a message jointly with my sister, who is also a Nico fan. Just need to decide what to say now! Will be back later in the weekend...
