Can anyone solve the Lucho puzzle/riddle? not sure...
My advanced guess is that he is home with his family, living happy with them and doing some really heavy "pre-season" workout. Then he will fine-tune his game just in time for the DC match and depending on how it goes in that we will know if he will continue or not. If he plays well, get the momentum going and feel he can beat decent players, then i´m sure he will go out on tour again,, maybe focus on the US Open QF event.. If he plays poorly and loose,, well, then I think we have to wish Lucho all the best in his new life as former pro.

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

Yes, I guess you're right.
Let's hope he plays well and decides not to retire yet... Gordo retiring is more then enough for me at the moment

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

Might be still injured having come back to the tour too soon. It's not like this year has been very kind to 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".


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".

Yes, he travels on a Spanish passport, which makes things a lot easier and they also have a limit on the amount of non-EU foreigners in the squad, so you see his team mate Hartfield is playing for Austria and Brzezicki (Poland).

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".

Lucho is going to play the Poznan Challenger after the Davis Cup in Lima.

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!!!!

Lucho won 6-2 7-6 4-6 7-5, it wwas not a very good performance, especially against a guy who hasn't played on the pro tour. He was down *3-5 in the 4th, but managed to avoid getting this to a 5th set.

Lucho is never good from a break and he was nervous as, but he got it done.

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!!!!

After more than a bit of unnecessary suffering, Lucho( master of suspense) prevailed 7-5 in the fourth set to tie the series 1-1.
Miranda lost to Polansky in straight sets.
Will the doubles decide the winner?
