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

Yes, and I'm glad he's got some time now to spend with his family

He clearly misses them very much when he is on tour. I really felt for him when I saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBMdUJODqos

(I hope he doesn't mean what he says there however about how long he's gonna keep playing )

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

Interesting interview after the match and hope he can rest up and get his back in order.

http://www.daviscup.com/shared/media...C_8466_mp3.MP3

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".

Congratulations to Peru and Lucho . Taking his country into the world group surely must have been one of the proudest moments of his career

Premian al equipo peruano de tenis por destacada actuación en Copa Davis

(Lima) El Presidente de la República, Alan García, rindió en Palacio de Gobierno un merecido homenaje y entregó un premio de 20 mil dólares, al equipo peruano de tenis, que por primera vez consiguió ingresar al Grupo Mundial de la Copa Davis.

La ceremonia especial contó con la presencia del capitán del equipo de tenis Jaime Yzaga, Luis Horna, Iván Miranda, Matías Silva, Mauricio Echazú; así también como del jefe del Instituto Peruano del Deporte (IPD), Arturo Woodman y del Ministro de Educación, José Antonio Chang.

García destacó la entrega del equipo, logrando que el Perú se encuentre entre los 16 mejores equipos del mundo al derrotar por 4-1 a Bielorrusia.

"Jóvenes deportistas triunfadores, gracias por darle al Perú esta alegría enorme y por la cosntancia, perseverancia y esfuerzo desplegado", expresó el jefe de Estado.

Además de entregar un premio en efectivo, García Pérez también entregó platos recordatorios a todos los integrantes de este equipo.

En lo que respecta al incentivo económico, a Luis Horna e Iván Miranda les corresponde 8 mil dólares cada uno, mientras que Matías Silva recibirá 3 mil dólares y Mauricio Echazú los restantes mil dólares.

De otro lado, la segunda raqueta del Perú, Iván Miranda, quien viajará a Colombia, para jugar desde la próxima semana un Challenger, dijo estar tranquilo respecto al rival que le tocará a Perú.

Cabe indicar que este jueves se conocerá el próximo rival de Perú en el Grupo Mundial que podría ser Estados Unidos, Rusia, Alemania, Suecia, Argentina, Francia, España o Bélgica.

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

The Peruvian government is going to help build a bigger venue so it can hold events.

Peru got the Spanish team, which was the worst one they could have, but it will be good for the crowd and Lucho will try his best and win a match 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".

PERU CELEBRATE SUCCESS


By Mark Staniforth, PA Sport

Luis Horna was keen to talk about the inspiration of history after completing a singles victory over Max Mirnyi which led Peru into the Davis Cup World Group for the first time last week.

The current world number 85 became a national icon for his performances against Belarus at the Rinconada Country Club in Lima, which earned Peru a glamorous February home tie against Spain.

It was a remarkable achievement for a country which had languished in Americas Zone Group II as recently as 1997, and showed little capability of reaching such an advanced stage of the competition.

Horna said he was inspired by watching a video of Peru's previous finest moment in the competition, when current captain Jaime Yzaga was involved in a tight play-off defeat to Australia in 1989.

Yzaga fashioned an epic 9-7 win over Jason Stoltenberg in that tie and Horna said: "I asked Jaime to give me the CD because I wanted to see it again and get ready for the moment.

"We watched the match together and I think that was a very important thing that we did in order for me to get ready for today. When the moment came I was ready to suffer like I should and come up with the right shots."

Horna's team-mate Ivan Miranda, ranked a lowly 230, had set the course for an unlikely victory over the 2004 semi-finalists with an astonishing four-set win over Mirnyi in the opening rubber.

Horna's win over former Wimbledon semi-finalist Vladimir Voltchkov then took Peru to the brink of victory, and after defeat in Saturday's doubles he duly wrapped it up in Sunday's opening reverse singles.

Victory prompted the nation's president Alan Garcia to present the players with a £10,000 bonus and silver plates to commemorate their momentous achievement.

Garcia told team members: "Our nation feels itself represented by its sportsmen's victories. Thank you for giving Peru so much joy and for your commitment, perseverance and the efforts shown."

However, if the seemingly impossible were to happen and Horna extended his nation's odyssey all the way to the end of the competition, he would not be the first Peruvian to get his hands on the Davis Cup.

Arequipa-born Alex Olmedo lifted the trophy in 1958, albeit as a member of the United States team, having left the nation of his birth to undertake a business degree at the University of Southern California.

Olmedo had little alternative. Peru did not participate in Davis Cup for the first time until 1968. In 1959, Olmedo won both Australian Open and Wimbledon titles, and was runner-up at the US Open.

Perhaps Olmedo will be the next source of inspiration for Horna as he prepares for the much more daunting task of entertaining the likes of Rafael Nadal back in Lima early next year.

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!!!!

Lucho is set to return next week from injury he is playing in the Montevideo Challenger and then onto Guayaquil.

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".
