Chucho vs "Lizard Lips" Mahut at the Aussie Open

Chucho is playing Falla in the 1st round and we all know Chucho is shit after a break, but hope he can get some matches before the AO.

Coopers is a local beer.

MD

[1] Lleyton HEWITT (AUS) v Dudi SELA (ISR)
Alejandro FALLA (COL) v Jose ACASUSO (ARG)
Ernests GULBIS (LAT) v QUALIFIER
Victor HANESCU (ROM) v [6] Jo-Wilfred TSONGA (FRA)

[3] Jarkko NIEMINEN (FIN) v QUALIFIER
QUALIFIER v Simone BOLELLI (ITA)
Florian MAYER (GER) v Mischa ZVEREV (GER)
Vincent SPADEA (USA) v [8] Sebastien GROSJEAN (FRA)

[7] Juan Martin DEL POTRO (ARG) v Michael RUSSELL (USA)
[WC] Robert SMEETS (AUS) v Benjamin BECKER (GER)
Evgeny KOROLEV (RUS) v Mario ANCIC (CRO)
Michael LLODRA (FRA) v [4] Gilles SIMON (FRA)

[5] Radek STEPANEK (CZE) v [WC] Joseph SIRIANNI (AUS)
Sam QUERREY (USA) v Steve DARCIS (BEL)
[WC] Chris GUCCIONE (AUS) v QUALIFIER
Julien BENNETEAU (FRA) v [2] Paul-Henri MATHIEU (FRA)

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: Chucho have a few Coopers and wins in Adelaide Thread

At least he plays in the evening session as the heat on court during the day in Adelaide has been severe. Stepanek said it was the hottest he had experienced anywhere in the world.

Would love to see him in the next round against most likely Hewitt. But yes after such a long break I have my doubts especially as Falla seemed to have picked up his game towards the back end of last season.

Re: Chucho have a few Coopers and wins in Adelaide Thread

Chucho wins 6-3 7-6 and I am surprised he won this match, because usually after a big break he is pretty ordinary and not someone who hits their stride straight away.

He gets to play Hewitt at his home town, and Hewitt will want revenge for what happened in Buenos Aires.

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".

Congrats to the big man
If only he could do this again against Hewitt. That would make my day for sure

hmmm I'll sit on the fence with this one. Hewitt probably needs to win this one more, Chucho can beat him should they play in Europe later in the season

Re: Chucho have a few Coopers and wins in Adelaide Thread

Hewitt would have to go to Europe in the spring to play on clay.

Interesting match up as Chucho has the firepower to hit through Hewitt, but I think he needs more matches in the tank to be ready for Hewitt.

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".

Too bad it didn't work out
As you said, probably too early in the season

Re: Chucho vs Mucho in the land of the All Blacks Thread

Chucho is playing Almagro in Round 1 of Auckland.

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

Hope he smashes him off the field... I don't like Almagro

Re: Chucho vs "Lizard Lips" Mahut at the Aussie Open

Chucho plays Mahut in the 1st round of the AO, not an easy match, but the surface isn't too quick.

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".
