Lucho Horna def "El Vampiro" Massu 7-5 6-3 to win Viña del Mar

Congrats Lucho on winning your second career title especially against Massu who he has never taken a set off in 6 matches and beating him in front of his friends and family.

Sure it was a MM event, and this is not as good as his first win in Acapulco where he defeated Calleri, Gaudio and then Chela to take the title.

Lucho was being the more aggressive in the match and was serving well and he was down 3-5 in the 1st set. He was leading 40-15 and a great mishit backhand from Massu got it to 40-30 and he took his one bp opportunity.

Horna has stopped making as many errors as previously and realised on the heavy mud that he didn't have to hit winners after 4 shots. He became more patient and then took advantage of the Massu short balls and his inside out forehand was working very well.

Massu just can't win his hometown title it seems.

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".

The crowd were very good to Lucho as well.

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".

Very well played by Horna. As GWH said, the inside out forehand was working and it pounded relentlessly Massu weak backhand side, causing Nico's short balls. Now I hope Massu doesn't lose the confidence he gained back against Montañes. We need him in good shape to defeat Andreev.
