Post SA Open 09 - 1R - R.Klaasen def RR.Hidalgo 6-3 7-5

Played well did Klaasen, likes to serve and volley although this hidalgo is a mug on hard courts, supries he didnt go to vina del mar qualies or main draw to be honest but good to see Klaasen win in front of his home crowd.

Rubén Why he was here in the first place, I don't know.

Good win for Klaasen. Not the youngest anymore, so he will enjoy every win he can get.

I guess there was a much lower cut off in Vina partly due to it being a 28 man draw.

strange to see Roitman as this event as well.

And L.Mayer at first look but on closer inspection of his results he seems to like hardcourts.

Klaasen reminds me of IN-P in terms of his :retard: net approaches. Good forehand, bad backhand, solid serve, solid volleys, good speed, bad positioning and footwork. He shoouldn't be ranked @ 350th, rather something like 150th-200th. He should enjoy this win, as he is coming back to challengers/futures if Baghdatis wins with Anderson and he meets him in the next round. I am surprised that he wasn't ranked higher than 323rd, as I can't see too much difference in quality between him and f.e. 200th Scoville Jenkins.

And one more important thing. Maybe the most important - RRH is a mug.

Although I've never seen him play Leonardo Mayer seems to be a player with a good serve who likes hardcourts. Even his best clay results have come at 3000m+ altitude which in many ways plays more like hardcourts. I only need to mention that Chris Guccione won two of these high Andes challengers back-to-back on clay a few years ago.

Yes, Mayer is a (slow) hardcourt player.
