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

Miranda said he is ready for the doubles after recovering from hepatitis.

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!!!!

Israel takes 2-1 lead over Peru in Davis Cup
Horna had been scheduled to play in the doubles with Peru's other singles player, Ivan Miranda, but captain Jaime Yzaga decided to rest the pair for the reverse singles on Sunday.
Ooof. Well... I hope this works out...

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

Lucho started off very well, but couldn't take the 2nd set, then he ran out of legs in the last two sets.

http://www.daviscup.com/news/matchre...rticleid=14729

Sela's victory ensures Israel's status

Israel's Dudi Sela defeated Luis Horna of Peru in an epic four-set battle on Sunday to see the hosts through to the 2009 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group.

The tense match which lasted just over three hours, produced some top quality tennis, with Horna's forehand producing many outstanding winners in the first part of the match before Sela clawed his way back from losing the first set to win 67(6) 64 61 62.

Peru take a chance

Peru’s captain Jaime Yzaga decided to rest both his leading players, Horna and Ivan Miranda, in Saturday's doubles in the hope that they would recover sufficiently from Friday's opening singles to win the tie on the final day but Israel had other plans.

While he was still fresh, Horna was clearly the better player on Sunday. He hit some amazing winners on his forehand side from way behind the baseline, not allowing Sela any chance to forge a lead in the tense baseline battle. It was a completely different match from Friday’s clash with Harel Levy, which Horna won in a scrappy performance. Against Sela he pulled out all the stops with some quality baseline strokes off both sides.

In the first set, the players traded breaks before it went to a tiebreak after an hour's play where Sela held two set points. But Horna forced the errors from Sela's racket and came back to win the set 8-6 in the hot sunshine. Sela's spirit appeared to take a blow as he went a break down early in the second set and he slammed his racket to the ground, breaking it. Horna was still looking way better than his 106 world ranking and the supportive home crowd began to think that the tie might have to be decided in the final rubber. But as the set progressed, Horna tired and began to miss shots, while Sela kept the points long, running the Peruvian off his feet.

Sela takes control

Sela levelled the set with a break for 4-4 and another to level the match, and from there Horna's error count began to rise and Sela wrestled control. "I feel very good, it was a really tough match but we made it finally and we are back in the World Group," said an ecstatic Sela. "Horna was playing very well, his forehand was really big, it was really tough to read and to get back, but I think he tired through the second set and that is what helped me a lot."

Horna added that while he started the match well, it was not enough; he said that he felt a little shaky towards the end and much was to do with the opening singles on Friday where he beat Levy in a very long match played in intense heat. "I had a chance to go two sets up but I couldn't get my rhythm back and I lost confidence in a couple of shots which were key for me and after that it was very difficult," Horna said.

He added that while his form at the start of Sunday's match was excellent, it was not enough. "You have to finish the match at that level too," he said.

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!!!!

Here is the interview with Lucho after he lost the match and he made a very good point.

They said he was playing Top 30 tennis again, which is good and all, but he couldn't finish like this. He is very disappointed with the singles this year, understandably, in spite of the doubles success.

He will be playing in the Copa Petrobras Challenger series. Next week, he will be in Brazil after spending some time at home.

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

Thanks for the pics and the interview

Sad to see Lucho so disappointed, but he (and the team) did what he could.
They are a great team and they get along well, but it is a fact that Lucho carries the team and it is very difficult when so much depends on 1 player.
It will be good for him now to spend some time with his family and relax.

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

Original article below.

http://www.diariolaprimeraperu.com/o...Dnoticia=24244

After the match with Israel in Davis Cup, didn’t finish well. Luis Horna spoke. It was said he wouldn’t renounce the Peruvian team. Today, the speech is explained in a calm manner. Though he has the desire to continue, but he isn’t sure that he is going to remain with the team.

“I said if the team has the same working conditions were maintained and there aren’t problems to continue, but today there is nothing clear on the matter. There are many things that should improve, but the federation does nothing”, Horna said harshly.

“I want that Jaime Yzaga remains as captain. In 2004 we all made a promise. That we were going to do everything to get Peru to the World Group and give Davis Cup priority. Now, if Jaime wants to finish for personal reasons I believe that Túpac Venero has to take the role of captain”, indicates Horna

I had about two or three years more and it gave me much shame that we were playing in the lower divisions. When we were classified into the world group I thought all of this would change. But it’s not like that. The federation doesn’t have its own court. When I retire I will always tied to tennis in all ways.

Horna expects the preparation of matches so they can make it back to the World Group.

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