Acasuso smokes out El Fashionista Koubek 7-6 6-1 6-4 to give Arg 1-0 lead

Well done Chucho for getting the team off to an excellent start in his 2nd match of the year.

Chucho didn't face any break points in the first set, but served poorly in the tiebreaker and Koubek had 2 set points and couldn't convert on either.

Chucho broke early and held the momentum to give his team the 1-0 lead. I am disappointed for Koubek that he couldn't put up a better performance in this match after a tight 1st set.

Chucho served well, but had some help from El Fashionista with 44 unforced errors.

At least Chucho has conserved some energy for the doubles and Day 3 singles.

Chucho

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".

Thanks Chucho

But to be honest, after the first set, Koubek gave up. His body language said it all. So, thanks to you too Fashionista
Honestly, a total unpresentable attitude from Koubek, but nothing new.
But good for Chucho for keeping the focuss. Now is up to Cañas)

There is a difference between not playing well and not trying.

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".

Here's hoping the Austrians lose, we want revenge for 2004 and we will put them on the worst grass possible if we draw them.

Well done Acasuso

If you are conceited about your glory,why don't you feed the earth for a day?
and if you are conceited about your power, why did your desires control
you one day?

He has tendonitis on his knee, after AO he had medical order to not even train . He got that injury in October 2006, Vienna for more data. He played with some pain the indoor season, the Master in Shangai and the DC final tie, but the hard surface of Chennai resented badly his knee. He even had doubts about playing AO.
