Exhos are better for that....No particular pressure nor competition. Believe me, the drooling is so much better.

Yes, Cristian is a good guy and he did some good work with Chucho and I don't think he will be unemployed for too long.

He looked like he is a guy. Hope he will be around, with some other player soon.

Re: Chucho News and Articles

Maria......I don't think it was necessary for you to worry. I mean, I have replied to you, saying I wish I could see that match (the final), because that was what I felt like saying at that time. I also think it should be an interesting match. So, I have to say I don't get what made you write these last 2 posts of yours, especially about the fact that I was ignoring you. I don't understand what made you feel so.....and it's not because I spoke about Cristian with GWH that I was ignoring you. We're several posters around, not just you & me. Anyway, I hope it's all clearer now.

Re: Chucho News and Articles

Anyway, tonight Chucho plays his exho finals with Cañas and i will try to do a report. As we said, it will be an interesting match to see. Maybe we can see how both are playing on fast surface looking at Davis Cup first round.

Re: Chucho News and Articles

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.


http://www.ole.clarin.com/notas/2006.../01335878.html

Martiniano Orazi and Orsanic are in Punta del Este with him.

Chucho: "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”.


Orsanic: 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.

Orsa: “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”

Re: Chucho News and Articles

Thanks Lau. It's interesting to have Orsanic's point of view, as to why Chucho won't take part to any event before the AO. Now, it makes more sense. And I do hope what he said about the "1 match leaving a mark" is true, that the reactions were the right ones for Chucho.......

Re: Chucho News and Articles

I´m sure I heard/read Chucho talking about how mentally exhausted DC matches leaves him, all that stress... I bet the last DC match was particularly hard for him in this aspect. Not only, or particularly because he was defeated, but because it must be difficult to get back to "normal" after such a stressful situation.

Re: Chucho News and Articles

Chucho won de exho against Cañas 75 64 (I´m doubtful about the first set...., I don´t know if it was 76...)
I could watch very little of the match and apart from a couple of points, didn´t seem to be very entertaining..., but I might be wrong...
José will be flying to Australia (or arriving there?) on the 8th of January.

Re: Chucho News and Articles

Thanks for the update on the exho, lau, and the info from the article.

I wasn't too concerned with his decision not to play a lead-up tourney before AO, but it's nice to hear he's getting there with plenty of time to adjust to time, environment, etc.
