Puerta lost in 3 sets in the quarterfinals, I am glad that he played in Europe. Its better than in South America I quess. Come on Mariano please play some qualifications and win some atp matches, we ll miss you @ The Tour. Mariano was innocent so come back please as soon as possible
While Mariano lost in the first round last week, he managed to win the doubles title. That had to be some good match practice and let's hope it helps Mariano in his first round match in Italy on hardcourts
He plays Marko Tkalec, GL to Mariano
Puerta lost again in 1 round, with 5-7 7-6 6-7 close match on hardcourd. I hope that he will win some macthes next week and comes back to top 100
I'm really hoping along with you....I've looked forward to him playing quallies again and maybe even at Cincy this year....realistically though I think my chances to see him this year are pretty slim.....
Mariano lost to Leonardo Mayer , 7-6 5-7 4-6, he leads with 5-3 in second set, so this is very dissapointing again, for 3 weeks now he lost ikn 3 sets with 4-6 or 6-7, he is now ranking 185,and is not lucky at all this year, this innocent man, please come back, what is is email adres, so we can support him. He needs some mental help!
Otherwise he did not come back in the top 100 this year
Mariano say this for an book of argentine interviews
Why did you come back to play?" "Because I wanted to end my career on the court, I deserve it, and to do the impossible to finish with a good ranking. I had dreamed of it since I was a young boy. I always wanted to be the one who stopped the tennis, and not have the tennis stop me. That's why I fought so much for all this. And I came back to play to be up there. Because I always felt I was going to come back and play". (Mariano Puerta)
After some relatively poor results lately, it seems like his hard work is paying off
This is his first Challenger title since coming back and a big one (125k) at that.
Mariano should be around 150 in the world come tomorrow
He is playing next week on hard in Ecuador, vamos Mariano, keep it up
I am very very happy for Mariano.He deserves this after a very difficult period in his tennislife,we support him 1000 procent the next months and please play soon some atp matches, I am so glad that he won this Challenger In Bogota. Come on Mariano. Do he has an emailadres?
