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

You would be right señor Oscar.

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".

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

Luis Horna no participará en Abierto de Brasil



La primera raqueta nacional, Luis Horna se retiró del Brasil Open 2007 que se disputará en Costa de Saouipe, en su lugar estará el español Albert Porta. Horna era la octava cabeza de serie.

El campeón del Abierto de Viña del mar, quien sufrió mucho en el partido de Copa Davis ante el venezolano Medina - Álvarez debido a problemas estomacales, no participará en el Abierto de Brasil perdiéndose la oportunidad de obtener un nuevo título, según informó RPP Noticias.

El peruano se hubiera enfrentado a los argentinos Agustín Calleri, Gastón Gaudio y Juan Ignacio Chela; y a los españoles Juan Carlos Ferrero, Nicolás Almagro y Carlos Moyá; entre otros.

El Abierto de Brasil se disputa en el balneario de Costa de Sauipe, en Bahía, y reparte 431 mil dólares en premios.

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

Yes, Lucho is out of the event in Costa da Sauipe and has been replaced by Albert Portas.

Just needs some time to recover from Davis Cup and he will be back in Buenos Aires hopefully.

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".

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

Well i guess it's a logical move from Lucho, no need to risk his health here, and he should get to argentina in good shape.

Vamos Lucho carajo!

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

Yes, Argentina is like his second home there and I hope the old man Mastelli is looking after Lucho. The good thing about this part of the year for Lucho, is that the family can travel with him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

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

ANd since he lost in the first round in brazil, there are no points he is gonna lose, Last year he also lost in first round in Argentina, so if he makes a good run there he can be maybe in the top 40.

Vamos Lucho carajo!

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

It's not so much of a problem with the points, it's like this in my eyes. If Lucho plays well and converts his chances and then the ranking will look after itself.

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".

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

I didn't know that Rafita also played PS with Lucho although I would like to know the reason why he all of a sudden talks about a good relationship between Rafa and him...

Luis Horna juega ‘play station’ con Rafael Nadal

(RPP) La primera raqueta del Perú, Luis Horna, confesó que mantiene una relación amistosa "muy buena" con el español Rafael Nadal, segundo en el ranking del tenis mundial, con quien suele jugar ‘play station’ cuando coinciden en los torneos del circuito.

"Rafael es muy asequible, simpático y muy humilde siendo joven", dijo Horna en una entrevista publicada este miércoles, informó EFE.

El tenista peruano, que le dio el primer punto a su país en la reciente ronda por la Copa Davis ante Venezuela, agregó que con Nadal ha salido a comer y ha jugado a fútbol en la consola electrónica de juegos ‘play station’.

"Pero siempre me gana, es un gran jugador", agregó el tenista limeño.

Horna, puesto 51 en el ranking mundial, dijo soñar con alcanzar a los diez mejores del tenis internacional con actuaciones como la que tuvo en el Abierto de Viña del Mar, donde se coronó campeón a inicios de este mes.

El tenista dijo valorar muchísimo el título ganado en el torneo chileno porque se trató de una "cancha pesada" que es "muy difícil".

He'd be in Argentina more than likely already, since he is training there most of the time.

I think Lucho can handle Roddick as a person, you know the saying that no one is perfect.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
