I like to go to the quallies even of small tournaments to see new players. And even on the quallies of the ATP Buenos Aires you can see crowds of people because it`s free (good way to promote the tournament).
Hello Fran, thank you for your answer.
That's quite true, going to the qualies I knew and met some of the "young guns" from our junior tennis like Arguello, Schwartzman, Velotti, Pastor... It's the future and it's so cool to be into it. They usually recieve WC into the challengers main draws, that's also pretty good.
I travelled a bit and in Wimbledon for example when you talk with people they only know about the players that do it well in their tournament but don`t have a clue of what happens in other tournaments the rest of the year. The only country where I found people outside of a tennis court really literate with tennis was in Australia (in Melbourne but not sure how it`s like in other big cities).
Well... I envy you
My dream is to go to Wimbledon, and I really hope one day I'd do it.
You really surprise me with that... It's a bit difficult to believe, I mean... I usually know the whole field in Wimbledon singles' draw.
Well... I think I'd know it in time. I can dream.

True. I have DirecTV and I remember they broadcast the final only for Delpo beeing there.
I mean, it's quite good for his die-hard fans who can watch it via TV and not with a live-broadcasting in internet, but it's kinda weird how the people act.
The magazines made an article about Delpo's Delray Beach, and that article is bigger than Federer's one winning Paris... I mean, come on!
It surprises so much what you say about the lack of organization in the Copa Claro.
I didn't live that, but, knowing the country, I believe you. And it's not good...
Next years' field would be better than the last one. I hope you can go, it's gonna be well deserved.
