Re: Torneo Playa de Luanco

Sounds like a lot of fun. However, I'm pretty sure a beach court plays nothing like the hard courts at Montreal and Cincy where Nando and Feli should be shortly.

At least Nadal had the sense to not go and instead train on hard courts.

Re: Torneo Playa de Luanco

Any tournament Mantilla has won has to be good.

Congrats Nando.

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: Torneo Playa de Luanco

LaLo got his ass kicked as always, Fer could beat him on clay even playing right-handed

Re: Torneo Playa de Luanco

As a lefty who can play right when needed, can I volunteer to teach Nando how?
