Canas saves five match points to defeat Carlos Berloq 4-6 6-2 7-6(8)

A very high quality match on both ends.
Vamos Willy.

Not bad. All of the wins he had this week, plus the fight in the final.

Par for the course for Canas tho.

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron

Vamos!!! The video kept buffering so it was difficult to watch, but worth it. A fantastic effort in his first week back, he'll be back where he was soon enough - it's just a matter of time. He has too much heart not to do it.

Saved four match points, a 3-5 deficit in the third and 3-6 in the tie-break!!! Willy-style.

Actually it was SIX MP's! 2 at 3-5, and then 4 in the TB.

Re: Willy Canas wins first tournament after supsension!

Will you pee in this cup sir?
jk, great effort by Willy...So, what's his ranking now, like in the 750s?

It's just you don't want to have a lot of expectations, because when you start to have a lot of expectations you just end up losing in the third round to God knows who. ~Marat Safin, summarizing his career

No comment:
Mawie: he kinda reminds me of me, he feels obligated to have every sentence be a joke
Maggie Tulliver: and he takes his clothes off when he sees a camera
Maggie Tulliver: it's a little pathetic
Maggie Tulliver: it's like his first reaction

Re: Willy Canas wins first tournament after supsension!

Canas will be ranked 515 after this, so he already moves ahead of Donald Young.
El argentino Guillermo Cañas consumó hoy un resonante retorno a la actividad tras purgar una suspensión de 15 meses por dóping, al adjudicarse el torneo challenger de tenis de Belem con un triunfo sobre su compatriota Carlos Berlocq por 4-6, 6-2 y 7-6 (9).

De esta manera, Cañas, ex número ocho del mundo, sumó su primer éxito en esta nueva etapa de su carrera al imponerse en un torneo que repartió 25 mil dólares en premios.

Berlocq (124 del ránking mundial) le opuso seria resistencia al ganador, que debió luchar con intensidad, especialmente en el tercer set, para desequilibrar el juego en su favor.

Cañas, nacido en Tapiales el 25 de noviembre de 1977 y ex top ten (alcanzó el octavo puesto en junio de 2005), protagonizó un retorno triunfal en Brasil, donde hilvanó cinco triunfos al hilo
que demostraron que su categoría está intacta y también sus deseos de volver a la elite del tenis mundial.

El argentino, antes de la final, le había ganado al venezolano Jonathan Medina Alvarez (432) y a los brasileños Marcos Daniel (94), Andre Sa (182) y Ricardo Mello (147).

Con el triunfo de esta noche, Cañas avanzará hasta el puesto 515 del ranking mundial.

Wow... he must be really rusty to struggle against Berlocq. That guy serves worse than the guy from my academy... awful!

Re: Willy Canas wins first tournament after supsension!

Canas is still a cheater. I doubt he's going to get much wildcards from the ATP tour he is still blacklisted in many ways. Perhaps some South American events next year will give him a wildcard. However, he's still ranked so low he can't even get into grand slam qualifying events.

If he is still a cheater they wouldn't have reduced him the sentence


Great win Willy!!

Hopefully he can win some more challengers and get to the top 100 or 200 fast enough
I hope he will be ranked high enough for him to play Roland Garros 2007 at least.
