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

Canada has the best doubles player in the world, will be tough. Lucho won't beat Polansky on that effort.

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'm most interested in the positive psychological effect of that win on Lucho's confidence.

Yep, I'm a little naive in thinking.

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

Too bad! they lost...
And tomorrow Lucho will be really tired for the last singles...
Can he play well 3 long matches in 3 days after such a long time?

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

Lucho defeated Niemeyer 7-6 4-6 6-4 7-5, lucky it was Niemeyer and not Polansky.

Physically it was very tough for him and he fought very hard, lots of service breaks, but his body has held up, so now he can get ready for the comeback to tour.

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!!!!

Amazing win by Lucho! He endured physical problems and showed once again he's got a lot of cojones...
This permformance should boost him to get back on the Tour ASAP.
Thanks Lucho!

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

When will Miranda play the 5:th match? Was it delayed yesterday?

BTW; New strings for Lucho in his racket. He used Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power in the past (an alu-grey color). It seems he now uses a new type of strings. Hope this gives him a mental boost

Grande Lucho Horna

Miranda is down 2 sets to 1, they will finish it today.

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

Lucho isn't playing Poznan, a Peruvian journalist and a friend of his died last week.

http://www.terra.com.pe/deportes/art.../dep617754.htm

Micky Rospigliosi the journalist died of colon cancer and Lucho said "that to be honest this is a difficult loss to take. Micky has been an example of courage in the last days fighting against the illness". He had opportunities to know him as a youngster.

“(Micky) was a person that radiated a lot happiness and enthusiasm, and I am sure that is a loss for all of us", expressed Horna.

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

Luis Horna joins 'Recycle me, do your job' campaign

Andina

Peruvian tennis player Luis Horna has joined “Recycle, do your job” campaign promoted by the National Society of Industries (SNI) and Kimberly-Clark Peru in a bid to protect the environment and support children of Foundation for Supportive Development (Fundades) and Aldeas Infantiles SOS.

The Roland Garros doubles champion is the seventh "ambassador" of this nationwide campaign which seeks to increase public awareness and education about recycling

Peruvian Environment Minister Antonio Brack was the campaign's first promoter in January this year while former Premier League star Nolberto Solano joined the initiative last month.

Wearing a sleeveless jacket made 100% from recycled paper during a press conference held Saturday, "Lucho" Horna stressed the importance of recycling for a cleaner environment.

“The campaign aims to raise awareness concerning recycling and at the same time to help children of Fundades and Aldeas SOS,” 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".


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".
