WTF willy? You are a shame to my country. Our favorite son has a lot of work to do if he wants to raise the RG trophy this year.

Chela is coming in form and is doing well, he played well guillermo didnt, many errors from his racket uncharacteristically.

I called this last night. But The sets were more one sided than I thought.

Again Canas really has done nothing special this year on clay.

Oh Willy

Anyway, congrats to Chela. No use being mad at him... (or maybe just a little )

Chela is so much stronger mentally than Canas. Congrats to Ignacio!

Well done from Chela - definitely the steadier of the two today.

Canas - too many UEs in the third set when I was watching - he just seemed flat today compared to how he has played at times this year.

But then Chela is the sort of player who will put a lot of balls back - he's no Federer, he won't go for point ending shots at the earliest opportunity. His persistence looked to be frustrating Canas, who coughed up errors when the rallies went long.

Still, bit of a wasted chance for Canas today.

Chela vs Hewitt in R2 - that's fun.

Wind played an important factor aswell... thought Willy would be winning this one... anyways, I know he'll be showing us some tennis in RG.
Good one for Chela!

It saddens me to say this but it looks like the 2 wins over federer in the US were just flukes.

Congrats to Chela, and as for Cañas, I don't want to see any "he was tired" excuses this time.

Re: Chela def Canas 6:1 4:6 6:1

you cant beat federer twice and say its a fluke, just cause your ljubicic hasnt beaten federer since he was a kid.

Not necessarily. It was on hard court and maybe Canas is playing better on that surface. In any case Chela is just ranked one spot less than Canas so this was supposed to be a tough match for Canas.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results
