I still remembered the match Roland Garros 2003 first round he crushed Rogie in straight sets
Why the fuck use you a retard smilie? There is no need for it. No point going on when the body and the mind aren't up for it.

It's his time to go and he has chosen it.

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

I understand it (and my Spanish is very poor) so I'm sure Lucho will

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

This is a short interview that appeared in the Peruvian paper El Comercio where Gaudio talks about Lucho:

http://elcomercio.pe/noticia/369321/...is-profesional

GASTON GAUDIO WOULD LIKE TO PLAY WITH LUIS HORNA IN THE LATTER´S FAREWELL TO PROFESSIONAL TENNIS.

The Argentine player is a friend of Lucho´s, and the Peruvian´s victim in Acapulco 2006. Horna has announced that he will retire from tennis after the Lima Challenger.


- “Hey, Lucho”, he says affectionately, feints a hug and strokes his bald pate.
Gastón Gaudio and Luis Horna have been friends ever since the Peruvian started to train in Buenos Aires. The Gato - witness and victim of the Peruvian´s first title (Acapulco 2006) - says that he himself is in the final stages of his career, and that he would like to play with Lucho in his last match as a professional tennis player in the 2009 Lima Challenger.



How do you feel about Horna´s retirement?

- “As a tennis player I regret that Lucho is retiring because we´ve shared almost the whole of our careers, we´ve played against each other, we´ve had our battles, and it will be a great loss for the sport. But as a friend I´m pleased for him if he´s happy, and if he wants to be able to enjoy other things, being with his family, or being in Lima, it´s understandable”.

Do you recall any important duel with him?

- “We have more shared memories as friends than as tennis players. We haven´t played each other more than a couple of times. But we would dine out, for instance. He lived in Buenos Aires a long time because he trained there, and we have shared experiences as friends”.

Would you like to take part in his last match?

- “I´d love to play the final against him, it would be great”. (According to the draw they could face each other in semifinals).

At what stage in your career are you?

- “In the final stages”.

How many years do you have left?

- “I´ll see how I finish next year, and after that I´ll decide”.

What motivates you?

- “Every time I watch the tournaments where I´ve played all my life on TV, it makes me want to be there again”.

So would you like to relive Paris 2004?

- “No, I would like to be in France in 2010. To have won Roland Garros is priceless, but that´s in the past”.

So maybe we´ll see you there in 2010?

- “I´d like that, it´s motivating. I know it will be difficult, but now I have to work to get into the top 100, and then we´ll see”.

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

Thanks again Vale for the interview, kind words from Gaston and it would be interesting to see what Mastelli says. He was with him for a long time.

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 won 3-6 7-6 7-6 and plays Aguilar in the next round.

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!!!!

Wrong score, Lucho alias Hitchcock won 7-6 (4) the third set in another nail-biter.
He is tennis master of suspense

He survived once again...

Stupid betting site going off at 5-3, but he got it done.

From the Demoliner match.

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

Lucho has a very tough match in a couple of hours against Chile's Aguilar. I hope he will be able to win otherwise it's adios amigos...

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

Lucho lost in 3 sets, too bad he couldn't win the title here, but not everyone can have the fairytale ending.

Hope he has a great life after tennis and can one day become DC captain, not quite as good as Yzaga as a player, but he did a lot for Peruvian tennis.
