Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

Canas = Desire
by Jeff Tarango

Code named Desire

This guy has heart!!

Guillermo Canas

Trying. . .
We'll say.

This professional is all that.

Why is he charismatic because his professionalism, his out court behaviour, his practice regime, his diet, his work ethic, his amiable presence are all poster cards for how it should be done in today's sports.

Guillermo Canas has one speed, get to everything and hit every shot appropriately. If he should hit it hard he hits it hard with emphasis. If the shot requires finesse, he tries it, he might not always make it, but when he misses he shows he cares.

He always cares, he always give 110%, otherwise he doesn't come to the event.

Watch this player on TV whenever the powers that be give you a chance. . .and record it.

His technique on the forehand is not perfect, so he may always have wrist problems, but when he is fit and ready, ATP Tennis, watch out.

Guillermo Canas will be a winner.

Footnote: It looks like Tarango was right, as this was written a while ago and he has reached his highest ranking ever.

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".

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

Thanks for that little article GWH. In spite of Jeff's antics it's good to see that he appreciates the talent and desire of Willy.

He has had a great 2004, and going to TMC as the alternate, there maybe a big chance that he will play some matches at TMC.

Willy and Jeff.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

I watched Cañas practice up close at the USO this year. He seems to be in great physical condition and was hitting some remarkable shots. He's always had a lot of potential and hopefully now that he's healthy he can start fulfilling it.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

The thing that is underrated about Canas is that he has played well on other surfaces besides clay. He has won on hardcourts, made finals indoors and on grass, and did well on the carpet.

I remember the Hewitt vs Canas matches at the 2001 and 2002 French Open, they were fun matches, as you knew none of them were giving an inch. It will be interesting to see their matches now as they haven't played since 2002.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

Thanks for posting that GWH As you know, I've been a fan of Canas for a while - he is SUCH a fighter - he never gives up - I have the greatest respect and admiration for him - and he's such a genuine, friendly person as well. I am really pleased that he will get his chance at TMC (even though David had to turn down his alternate's postition for him to go!). I hope Canas gets to play some matches and show the world what a great player he is.

Tarango's not all bad

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Very astute comment there Jeff, at least he gets some coverage in Argentina.

Thanks for the interview and Canas definitely deserves respect after what he has achieved this year, and for maximising his ability.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

Those were good comments by Tarango on Canas, and that's the thing everyone knows when they play him or watch him play, he will always give 100 per cent. I hope he doesn't have any more injury problems.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

I am surprised about this Tarango's sharpness ... guess he got it better off the court.
Thanks for the pick up. GWH

I have never read before an inference that Willy's wrist problems, could be due to his FH technique. Interesting approach.

I still believe Willy will reach a new career high after Wimby 05': he has nothing on RG WB 2004 and neither on the 3 clay TMS.

Vamos Willy.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

Tarango is actually quite an intelligent and thoughtful guy, he just had a very interesting temperament on court.

Re: Finally some credit to Guillermo Canas

Thanks for the article about our soldier, GWH
not only on the court, he even give 100% attention on the pracitise, though it spends much time, he definitely enjoy it. He is the one who can transfer those extreme passive shots into the unbelievable winners, never say no to any shot even sometimes they look really impossible to save.
This year is just good coming back ending with an alternate for TMC. Next year? Top 8?
