Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007

Puerta lost again in the first round against Niemeyer, It was a very close match again

2-6 7-6 6-4, it is sad beacause everytime when puerta lost the first round its is very close for the 11 times

He must win some matches now otherwise he never come back in the top 100 again

Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007

I wonder if he has lost motivation...things aren't happening as quickly as he expected perhaps and at his age ..time is running out. It's been almost a year now that he has been back and I think his goal was to be in the top 100 and back on tour. I wish him the best and hope he can turn this series of loses around and reach his goal. Sure do want to see him back.

Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007

Mariano reaches the quartfinals of Bogota 3 lost to Falla 3-6 6-7, and always in tiebreak. It was a better week than the last 2 weeks, so come on mariano , the ranling is between 150 - 154. He must play some good tournaments, and maybe a quali from an atp tour. Never give up Mariano, you are 1week 30, so you can play normal 3 years!!!!

Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007

Mariano has played very poorly recently, and the year didn't end how he wanted it to. Still, he will only end the year a little below where he is now. If he's motivated, he should be able to do well next year.
Also, he got a wild card into the Copa Petrobas Masters. Good luck Mariano

Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007

Marianoplayed his last tournament 28 November lost in quarters finale, beacuse of a walk over against Horna. He will be again in top 198, It was a first good half year rankiung 149, but than the last 5 months were nog to good, some quarters and the last 10 weeks he had injuries, so he m lost alot of points, so it is a little bit frustrating for him and his fans like me. I hope he comeback in 2009 and reached hi goal the top 100, top 50 will be to difficult, but it is possible to win some tiebreaks and not always lost in 3 sets.I hope the injuries will stop and he will try some qualifications of atp tournmants like buenos aires and chili in februar. Have fun and stay cool Mariano, happy holidays. I wonder if he had got enough money? He earned some 40 .000, its not much>???????

Re: Mariano's Challengers' Thread 2007
