By the way, were you supporting Santiago over your local boy?
I knew Santi would win so I was just hoping for a good match and it was .

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

Santi was robbed at 4-4 Deuce in the first set. Just long (I was there) shot from Almagro doesn't get called out (Auckland linecalling sucks TBH). He was understandably pissed but his attitude the rest of the match was disappointing. No wave to the crowd when he left (even grumpy-ass Ryan Harrison waved to the crowd as he left) .

I hope he comes back next year.

Yeah, that was a bit of a disappointment at the end. Nasty attitude. Did he look sick to you? He didn't sit down at one of the changeovers and he kept blowing his nose so I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

Also, I think Santi's New Year's Resolution should be to hit a defensive backhand slice.

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

AO R2 VS Djokovic .

He has weapons though, I'm sure he'll do better than Lorenzi...

I'm expecting an insane amount of unforced errors. Djokovic moves the ball around so well that Santi will be attempting winners from out of position too often. And his second serve will be begging to be smacked away...

Optimistic, no?

Vina Del Mar

Seeded 6th, 1R vs L Mayer.

I have to say, there's a really nice field this year.

Re: Getting to know: Santiago Giraldo

Santi plays Nalbandian in R1 of Acapulco. Another loss coming up?

Bellucci, Andujar and Giraldo are all playing so shit this year, when I actually thought they might all be able to break through further.
