of the final with Cañas.
Basically we can say Chucho's power was too much for Cañas. His service, his shots down the line and angles Cañas couldn't return. But Cañas fought a lot and could do some good things: some volleys, some return of a Chucho's smash very impressive.
A funny note: the match almost didn't start because a lot of insects were beside the lights falling down into the court! The players were waiting for a while till the assistents were cleaning up the court but the insects (we call them "cascarudos") were still falling down. Finally they start the play. At the end Chucho's speak was very sweet. He said he was happy to see Cañas back on courts after his difficult period and playing so good, happy also because Argentina has a very important player back for Davis Cup. He said he enjoyed the cup in Punta del Este, and hope this kind of exho will motivate more kids to start to play more tennis.
In the interview TYC Sport did with him, Chucho said his best tennis moment during 2006 was his SF in Master Series Hamburg, so one of his goals is to win a Master Series on clay. And the as emotional moments he remarked the ties of Davis Cup against Australia in Buenos Aires, and against Russia in the Finals. He wants to finish between the top 15 during 2007, win a MS on clay and to win DaVis Cup. "We want revenge" he say with his sweet smile. He also said he is now fully focused on Australian Open.
He was wearing in all white, and completely shaved, showing his baby face! He looked as a gentleman
