Viña del Mar R1 - Chela def Andujar 6-0 3-6 6-1
It's good to see Chelita back. This was his first competitive match since his R2 encounter against Verdasco at RG last May, just over 8 months ago. He had the best season of his career in 2007 (better than his 2004 season IMO), and finished the year ranked at no. 20. His ranking has since plummetted down to no. 147. After RG last year, he initially picked up a back injury, but then more seriously struggled with the groin injury Athletic Pubalgia, and underwent surgery at the end of July. In the Copa Argentina exho in December, he won his QF against Nalbandian.
Hopefully he'll stay healthy this year and climb back up the rankings.
