I have a report provided by Nathaliia on the match (she was there), so here it is
Lapentti vs Aranguren
In the first finished today match on the central court, Nicolas Lapentti from Ecuador defeated Juan Martin Aranguren from Argentina 6:3 6:4. You might have thought that Latin players would take chisels to do the scuplture from the baseline. The match didn't lack fantasy anyway.
Clearly not woken up Lapentti lost his service by playing a (hmmm how to translate "rachityczny niedolot" I mean the ball was miserably weak). Arangured presented himself as a solid player, he had a desire of victory, but in the middle of the first set the Ecuadorian improved the power of his shots, what helped him to take te 4:3 lead. We have to confess the Argentine could impress with his power, but if he hadn't had hidden it in the lift shots, the score could have been more profitable. Out of his own initiative he was attending the net. His actions, even if supported by fighting spirit, were reminding a fish trying to get free out of the net. Last game of the first set lasted for a dozen or so minutes. Aranguren was getting most creative at the time of defending setpoints, so seven years older Lapentti got furious it's the noon already and he still hasn't won - and attacked effectively and attractively. He won 6:3.
Beast's awakening inside the Ecuadorian lasted more in the beginning of second set, which was enough to get another break and keep it till the end of the match. The Argentine was shouting to himself, tried to diversify his game with topspin, finally he understood he didn't have arguments in confrontation with Lapentti when he was playing like at his best's (when he was ranked on 6th ATP). Equally resigned was his short coach with a large belly: he started to suck a finger. Looking at the game of more experienced of the players, it's hard to avoid comparizons to last year's winner, Agustin Calleri. They both don't play any better than the situation requires. Calleri didn't show the full spectrum of his abilities not until the semifinal. Nicolas Lapentti won his first match 6:3, 6:4 by accompaniment of childish long "aaaa" and feminine severe "Shut up". His next opponent will be Potito tarace from Italy, seeded six.
