Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

It starts tonight, this is the draw.

Thursday night

Cañas vs Calleri (it will be interesting to see how Guillermo is playing)
Luis Horna (from Peru) vs Chela (feed me)

Friday night

Gaudio (GO GATO!) vs Acassuso
Massu vs Mariano Puerta (Massu, from the third level of hell, comes to grace us with his tennis)

Saturday

CHELA or HORNA VS PUERTA or MASSU

CAÑAS or CALLERI VS GAUDIO or ACASSUSO

Sunday

Final


For those who live in Latin America (Maria Estefania and Undomiele, I think), espn+ will show the matches live.

I will be cheering for Horna and Gaudio, and against Massu.

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.

Quite a lot of my friends from Buenos Aries are going to this tournament. I think the match between Canas and Calleri will be strange tonight though - after all Calleri is getting married tomorrow isn't he? I'm sure his wife-to-be will not be too happy if he wins his match and has to play again on Saturday

Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

I think there are ways to take care of that "winning" thing -- partiularly in an exhibition.

Or maybe it's the ultimate bachelor's party.

Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

Cañas defeated Calleri 76 64, it was a very good match, it is not being played on clay, it is played on the same hardcourt of the Cincinatti mts.
Cañas looks great, he only has some problems tossing the ball in the serve.
There was only one break during the whole match, and it was a lucky break, Calleri playing like shit one game.
Guillermo looks supremely fit, a la thomas muster, as usual.

Calleri lost so he wont have problems getting married next saturday.

Now Cañas is playing with a little kid.
The little kid has good moonballs.

And in some minutes the Horna Chela match will start.

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.

Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

Looks like Calleri tanked it, but made it look like it wasnt a tank by only giving away one break

Why dont you like Massu?

Come on Gaston!

Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

Massu is the ugliest baseline grinder Ive ever seen, as Sjengster once said, he can kill variety in a tennis match like no-one else.

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.

Thanks for letting us know all the results TennisLurker. Without you it would be really difficult for us European fans of Argentine tennis to find out anything - cheers

Re: Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

Woo-hoo, the Raccoon is out! The umpire didn't have any problems in pronouncing Massu and Massa distinctly, by any chance? When Ferrero and Ferreira played at the AO, the commentators referred to them by their first names...

Anyway, I hope the winner of Canas-Gaudio takes it all. Doesn't Gaudio own him in the head-to-head? Interesting, considering that Canas has been much stronger mentally throughout his career than Gaudio.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

I think Cañas only defeated Gaudio in Wimbledon 01.

The Gaudio Acassuso match was like a real normal tournament match, Gaudio was full of negativity with a very bad attitude, he talked to the crowds and to himself, he insulted himslef.. a normal Gaudio match.

Acassuso will be top 50 again by the end of the next year I think.

The Racoon is wearing sleeveless shirts like Moya Ginepri and Haas.

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.

Re: Argentinean cup of tennis (a silly exhibition tournament)

who is the Racoon?

thanks for the match reports.

on a related topic, a friend of mine from my Spanish class showed me pictures of Coria as a young kid. he was sooooo cute!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
