Re: Luis Horna's Power Room!!!!


Luis Horna, who had never even reached reached an ATP final since turning professional in 1998, won his first tournamen at thet Abierto Mexicano Telcel claycourt event.

The unseeded Peruvian capped his improbable run to the final by defeating seventh seed Juan Ignacio Chela 7-6 (7/5) 6-4.

Horna said: "Winning your first title is an important moment in your career, and winning it at such a great event as Acapulco is even better.

"No doubt that I will always remember this moment."

"I served really well and I also had a little luck in the important moments which helped me to close the points."

Chela was not too downhearted after the defeat by Horna, who he revealed was one of his best friends on the circuit.

The Argentinian said: "I am still very happy, this has been a great week for me, I think Luis played a great match.

"I lost against a great player and a great friend, and I am glad he earned his first career title against me in the final."

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
