That was a gruelling contest. Unfortunately Lucho's title defence has ended and he will lose 160 ranking points next week. Escopeta and Lucho both losing on the same day courtesy of final set tiebreaks is a huge shame.
Well done to Charly for battling away and reaching the QF stage. He will face the winner of the Gonzo-Hartfield clash in the next round.

Why Craplock? Charly is not a bad player by all means.

I hope beating down defending champion will be a huge boost in his career.

Craplocq has a better chance of beating Gonzo than Horna did.

Re: Prince Craplocq beats Horna 76 36 76

The match was very intense. DRAMA!

Sorry about my basic english, but this is what I could tell after watching

In the first set both started commiting a lot of UEs, with Lucho holding serve easily than Carlos, anyway, Lucho was more tentative and commited more errors which allowed Carlos to hit with confidence and foregetting the nerves. TB seemed like it belong to Horna but Carlos scored nice returns which Horna couldn't handle very well. 7-6(3) Berlocq.

In the second set, Lucho realised that He needed to cut down the UEs, and He did it allowing him to dominate points and make Carlos fail. Actually from 15+ winners of Berlocq in the 1st, went down just to 4 in the 2nd, Lucho maintained in 11, [1st set also 11 winners].

The 3rd set started great for both, with Lucho breaking in the third game of the set, but from *3-2, 40-15, Lucho gifted the game with sending a Fh and a Bh out of the court. Carlos noticed this and fought for every ball, getting the break and holding serve till *3-4.
Lucho collapsed and started to swear no court, and He was given a warning. Anyways, He held serve. but at 5-5, deuce, serving Berlocq, Horna recieved intructions from his coach [" Pegale fuerte a la derecha" = "Hit the FH harder"] and a chairman went to the umpire to tell about it, which meant a second warning, with loss of point as a penalization. Lucho swore all over the court and was soooo mad. It was a crazy moment....
At that point Charly hit a huge amount of winners making Lucho work FOR EVERYTHING, Jeez, Carlos is such a fighter as they reached TB again.

Carlos kept making Lucho work for the extra ball and Lucho did not have enough patience nor answer for it, as well as some silly FH netted UEs made Lucho lose in the decisive breaker.
...for the record, Berlocq did hit more than 20 winners in the last set.

Oh, and for

Carlos's fighting spirit, Carlos's BH DTL , Lucho's clean strokes [Sometimes] and the nice exchange of balls in the rallies. Definitely a great match.

Gaudio º Gonzalez, F º Massu º Murray º Thiem º Nalbandian º Nishikori º Wawrinka

Re: Berlocq beats Horna 76 36 76

Berlocq is definetely a great fighter and that's why he became one of my favourite players

I was only able to watch a piece of secon set because the Brazilian channel stopped showing it to show Olmedo vs Lanus :retard:

thanks for that Alonso

Re: Berlocq beats Horna 76 36 76

Berlocq has definitely improved from the last times I have seen him, but this was a lost opportunity for Lucho.

At least Lucho can go back to Peru and prepare for the Davis Cup and +alonso thanks for the report.

Charly hitting backhands down the line that shot is firing for him at the moment.

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".

A pity for Lucho, good effort by Charly.
