This is an article in Ole today.
I won´t translate it completely because it makes no sense doing it.., just the most important things.
Martiniano Orazi and Orsanic are in Punta del Este with him.
"winning DC, having my first Super 9 (MSs) and be top 15” Tose are his goals, in that order.
“I have ‘a thorn stuck’
with what happened with the DC, I want to play all this year to try to ‘erase’
that bitter pill. As far as MS are concerned, I fell that I have more chances on clay, but I see I´m improving in all surfaces”.
about how Chucho dealed with his defeat against Marat in DC: “I think that the career of a player doesn´t depend of a match, but it´s true that it can make a mark, for good or bad. And the reaction of the people, his reaction and ours was a very good ones”
“He stopped 5 days alter Paris (travelled to Brazil), he trained, had a long weekend of rest and worked hard during 3 weeks before the DC. After Russia had five days and now we are practising. He is very well mentally”
Considering Chucho´s mental health (
sounds funny translated), both agreed to start the season later, directly in the AO: “Today he is not ready t compete, that´s why these kind of matches in fast surfaces are good for him”
“If we want him to have a good base for next year, it is better skipping the next weeks and go well to Australia”
Chucho has been practising serve in trainings.
“I want him to improve even more his attack weapons like the serve and his forehand”
About the physical aspect: “I expect him to have even more movement, specially the ‘adjustment’ steps in fast courts”.
Mentally: “Insisting in giving it all, like it was seen in the Davis against Australia in Parque Roca and in Hamburg´s MS”
