Good luck to Nico in VEGAS!!! :bounce:

It will be tough transitioning from clay to hardcourts, but hopefully he can get in a couple of matches.

Hope that he plays doubles too - that is still hardcourt time.

And if he has a tough week, having fun in Vegas will more than make up for it! :lol:

FYI to everyone. Vegas time is the same as Los Angeles, California time. So 3 hours behind NYC time and 2 hours behind Mexico time.

Ouch! That is a lot.

There are certain times of the year that Chile has the same time as me, but it seems like that hasn't happened for a long time.

All these time changes are confusing. :confused: :lol:

Thanks for all the info Nicofan! :wavey:

:scratch: Looking over the entry list,there is only one US player. Where are they all???

This week has been nice for me-Mexico is in the same time zone as me. That only happens with a
handful of tournaments :lol:

Thanks for pointing that out Sparko.

Yeah, only Sam the Man is in the regular entry list, and Vinnay got in as an alternate.

I'm not surprised Andy isn't there. He already played San Jose and Memphis for the smaller American tournaments. But no Blake, Fish, etc. etc.

After all of the problems Blake caused there last year, you would think that he would come back and atone for his past sins. :rolls:

so I guess I was right and seeing Roitman on the entry list confirms that Nico was asking him to partner up in doubles :p although I wouldn't mind him to partner up with Potito again :rolls:

Kid, don't you think Nico/Potito is the sweetest doubles team ever?

Although Mello & Sá are quite cute too!... :angel:

Thanks for the info Nicofan. So Andy's off the hook :). But I'd forgotten about Blake last year :haha: Perhaps he is just too embarrassed-or mad it didn't "stay in Vegas" :rolls: Still seems weird more of the lower ranked US players are missing. I would think Vegas would be a fun place to play :shrug:
