Re: Favourite Argentine Player

Nalbandian, a player who doesn't rack up most of his points on clay

Re: Favourite Argentine Player

Cañas

I cannot forget what he did last year in Toronto... defeating Federer, Srichaphan, Kafelnikov, Safin, Haas, Roddick straight to win that TMS title...!

Re: Favourite Argentine Player

Gaudio, then it would be Nalbandian.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

This is a REALLY hard one - forced to choose between my two faves, - thought long and hard about it, but in the end have to say David first with Guille Coria a very close second.

Re: Favourite Argentine Player

Tennis is not a cheap sport like football (soccer), but playing tennis in Argentina is cheaper than in most of the countries.
Cañas, Chela and Paola Suarez came from poor families.
Nalbandian and Coria came from ordinary middle class families, the father of Nalbandian had two tennis courts in their little town in Cordoba that he rented to the people of the town who wanted to play, and that was the main income of the family.
David grew up playing there, and that is probably why he is so good on hard courts, the two courts were hardcourts, and they were the only courts in town.

The father of Coria is a tennis teacher, so Coria was born with a raquet in his hand.

Gaudio and Zabaleta (and Sabatini too) came from rich upper middle class families, so they didnt have any problems.I dont know about Vilas.

During the 90's we pegged our currency to the dollar, so, traveling abroad became relatively easy, and the juniors could start to play against other juniors from foreign countries in the orange bowl and the junior grand slams.
But since the economic crisis that happened three years ago when we devaluated our currency it is very hard for the juniors to travel abroad.
We could not send any new player for almost two years, but this year Sabatini gave money to the Argentineas tennis association and now we will be able to send juniors abroad again.
