Re: Week 38: Bogota, Colombia

Loving the entry list. Nice to see Chucho on an entry list again. Falla coming here instead of playing indoors on his favorite surface, must be worried that ranking is about to slide in the wrong direction. I expect him to lose early here. Van Der Merwe on clay sounds interesting.

Daniel is the favorite for the title.

Re: Week 38: Bogota, Colombia

Chucho has had knee problems.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Indoor is not Falla's favourite surface, more outdoor hard and grass. But good to see him also playing challengers to work on his ranking. He is too up and down on ATP-tour to make a solid ranking.
Bit much to travel to Asia in the week after, but apparently those Colombians love playing in their home country.

True, I meant hard court in general but you are absolutely right. He's better on hard than he is on clay, is what I should have said. But it is a smart decision for him to play this challenger and obviously the home crowd advantage should help him, guess he decided to head here after the Davis Cup and hopefully get some easy points. As you say, he's too inconsistent and not quite at the level to play only ATP events and keep a good ranking but he definitely is better than most challenger players.

He's defending over 200 points through the end of the year, those Cincinnati points he got a few weeks ago were very helpful for him, but he'll still need some decent results to keep in the top 100 by the end of the season.

Acasuso
Thought he was going to play again...

Falla makes sense, after DC.
