For those of you who are confidently on Puerta...should we forget the play and the ground strokes that Acasuso mustered in the last 3 sets against Roddick? I think he showed great technical quality and he is on 3½ (+) days' rest (ignoring 3 games x Volandri) which has been good for his thigh.
Puerta played like Dementieva in the first set x Wavrinka, I don't understand your conviction here; he was great a couple of months ago but despite his clay class, he remains a question mark today. I see value on Acasuso at 2.30 in a 55-45 set up in favour of Puerta.
A question - allegedly, Acasuso does not like to play in front of big crowds and has therefore prioritized several rel. small tournaments, is that true...(could also be linked to entry circumstances....;-)...? Is he a highly sensitive person...?
