Nick has made it to the semis with a 6-3 6-3 win over IM. What a great week for him. Takes on Michael Yani now who is dangerous. Yani took out 4th seed Udomchoke, De Heart (beat Ball), and Matosevic en route to the semis so will be tough for Lindahl.
Great for Nick. Yani has been in awesome form of late although Lindahl hasn't been doing too bad either. It is great to see him playing some great tennis again after going through a rough form patch a while ago.
Great results so far. If Nick loses this match he'll go to about 282 in the rankings, if he wins this match and then loses then final he'll go to about 263 and if he wins the whole tournament he'll go to around 239 which would be great for him. Apparently Nick is the hot favorite for the tournament now.
Great result this week hopefully he takes out his first challenger title of his career tommorow. Probably the best thing to see in that video is him saying he is a lot more motivated now which is awesome.
It seems like he has been around for a while but he is still only 20 years old! Another plus about this week is given his results so far his ranking should be high enough to get him direct entry into the US Open qualifying tournament which looks like he could make a good run after this week.
Tommorows final will just come down to how focused Nick is and if he keeps telling himself just get one more shot back then Chris will be the one making the mistakes. GL kid your gonnna need it.
(Q) Nick LINDAHL (AUS) lost to (7) Chris GUCCIONE (AUS) 3-6 4-6
Still, congratulations on an awesome week! Hopefully this means Nick has come through a patch of horror form and is ready to take the next step in his young career. He is, after all, only 21 this year.
Excellent week Nick.. no shame in losing to an in-form Guccione. I think confidence is what he needs and he will surely get it from this result. I think we will see him in alot more challenger main draws now which is good.
