too bad.. I was really rooting for you guys. I like Colombia, and I'm a fan of Santi. He just seems to be mentally weak on the big points, unfortunately

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

Shame there's not more interest in here. I've been watching Giraldo a bit this year and especially these last few weeks and I think he's great, lots of potential to improve his ranking. The match with Rafa in Tokyo last week was high quality, and his win over Melzer this week in Shangai was pretty impressive too!

He's not entered in any more events this year as far as I can tell. Hopefully he'll use the extra time to prepare for 2012.

He's a good player, I first saw him during the Auckland tournament this year . I'm definitely keeping an eye out for him .

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

He will play against GGL about in 4 hours at Paris Masters. There'll be a stream for it. (court 1) GGL is out of form lately, so Santi really should win this match.

The biggest fan of Santiago Giraldo

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

First week of the season in Brisbane, first QF.

R1: def. Millman 6-3 6-3
R2: def. Petzschner 6-4 6-4

He looks to be in form, but Gilles Simon will be tough. Santi did beat him here last year quite easily though!

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

Simon def. Santi 7-6(2) 6-4.

Pretty nice effort though, and definitely some things to work on.

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

Santi has a reasonable shot at making another QF in Auckland. R1 vs local WC Michael Venus who I know nothing about, but on paper this looks like a good first match of course. 2nd seed Almagro in R2, who's still plugging away in Chennai.

I hope you get a chance to see him in action next week FlameOn.

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

I saw him live VS Michael Venus. It was a pleasure . When I get back home from Auckland and have my laptop again I've got lots of pics and video to share .

I hope he beats Almagro too .

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

I'm sure you didn't miss one of the hottest doubles pairings in history, Giraldo and Bellucci.

By the way, were you supporting Santiago over your local boy?
