He really throws his whole weight into that shot, it's a good go-to shot for him. And the hug was good to see

Re: Week 28: Bogotá, Colombia [Main Draw]

Strange way things came down in Bogota this week. I expected a Colombian to win which I believed it was going to be Giraldo or Falla but I would have never pay a single penny for Farrah! Well done though and congratulations for his 1st Challenger victory in his first appearance .

BTW, it`s a shame that this Challenger with this prize money /points had such poor field but definitely it should be moved to another time of the calendar where there are other tournaments on the region and in that way tghey would get more profit of it.

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

Re: Week 28: Bogotá, Colombia [Main Draw]

I'm impressed by Farah. He has a good serve and both his ground shots are good. Also good net game, and passible mobility. I've always liked his game, I'm not too surprised he is doing so well right now. He seems like the type that will get to a certain level, and then find it hard to move past that level IMO, so we'll see if he can keep this hot streak going.

Re: Week 28: Bogotá, Colombia [Main Draw]

Salamanca clearly looked like the better player to me. Didn't see the first set, but since then Farah was only better in the tb. The second set was great, Salamanca hit some nice return winners there.

Re: Week 28: Bogotá, Colombia [Main Draw]

To be honest Farah played his worst match of the week today. Not much was working and he had to gut it out. Fortunately he did, but I'm not that surprised as he is very good in tight moments....

He's a good college player here in the US so a few of us have heard about him/seen clips about him. This is his first big challenger result though, so it's not like everyone knows him
