The Big Guy In DC: ain't no mercy for Suecia

It's a new chapter in Chucho's career which certainly deserves a thread of its own. I hope this experience will kick off with a good performance. There should be a lot of confidence in his game after what he did in Vina del Mar.

Once again, congrats on the nomination. Keep it cool like you did in Vina

So get'em tiger and show the Swedes what clay is about.

You probably have no idea who the guy in my avatar is.

Re: The Big Guy in Davis Cup

From Clarin

13:00 | COPA DAVIS . words from Chucho

Acasuso: "Estoy pasando mi mejor momento"

“Estoy pasando por el mejor momento de mi carrera. Jugué un gran tenis”, dijo El Chucho. Sobre sus posibilidades, es firme candidato a ser el segundo singlista y también es una opción para el partido del sábado, en el dobles, aunque para ese día los titulares serían David Nalbandian y Agustín Calleri.

“Si llego a jugar voy a dejar todo en la cancha, como hago siempre. El llamado de Mancini me llegó en un gran momento, lo estaba esperando y no voy a dejar pasar esta chance. Lo considero un premio a mi trabajo. Físicamente estoy bien”, contó Acasuso en TyC Noticias.

Sobre Suecia, rival a partir del próximo viernes, el jugador dijo: “Tenemos muchas chances. Ellos cuentan con dos jugadores de gran nivel como Johansson y Soderling, que la semana pasada ganó un torneo. Pero sabemos que ellos prefieren las canchas rápidas”.


Briefly he said he is very happy because Mancini called, he was waiting for his call...he think he is at his best moment and he will fight till the last moment on cour to bring a point to Argentina. Chucho said he considers this as a prize for his hard work. Also said that Suecia has 2 great players (Johansson and Soderling) but they prefer hard courts, so Argentina has really chances.
In the article is said that maybe Mancini will consider Chucho even for doubles on Saturday.

Re: The Big Guy in Davis Cup

Soooo glad to hear 'Chucho' and 'hard work' in one sentence
I'm quite anxious before the rubber. If anyone knows something about a web stream, please let me know.

Re: The Big Guy in Davis Cup

Congrats on making the team Chucho and getting the spot as the second singles player, now it's time to show what he is made of.

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".

Good luck to Argentina and Chucho. I'm so glad he finally got his chance. Playing for his country in front of the BA public might be the right thing at the right time.

Re: The Big Guy in Davis Cup

In Olé Deprotivo they are making this joke with the words: "Chucho chocho", the second word means to us "very happy with something"....well, he is chocho because Mancini called him and now he will play second single on Frdiay...this is what the paper said about Mancini takin the decision

Práctica decisiva. Ayer, en el entrenamiento matutino, Acasuso y Chela jugaron un par de games frente a frente. Se los vio muy concentrados, pero Chucho estaba más inspirado. Un revés delicioso, un saque mortífero y gran efectividad en sus subidas a la red fueron algunos de los argumentos que presentó Acasuso, totalmente asentado en el polvo de ladrillo que se instaló en Parque Roca.

Decisive practice: Yesterday, in the morning practice, Acasuso and Chela played some games each other. Both were very concentrated but Chucho was more inpsired. A delicious backhand, a killer serve and very good approaches to the net were the reasons that made Mancini pick up Acasuso in the clay of Parque Roca"

they also said that Mancini knows him very well, because both started to play in the red earth of Misiones (that is a characteristic of the earth in the roads of Misiones: it is more or less red like the clay on a court)

another joke in Ole: "Chucho, go to play without chucho", in the last use, "chucho" means "fear"....it is a joke because they said he looks pretty much secure and strong!

Re: The Big Guy in Davis Cup

They are interviewing (whispering ) Maradona, who is in the stadium, they asked him if he knew Chucho. He said that he does and that José is a good football player, left-footed (does this word exist? )
off topic: apparently Maradona had a car crash this morning and now he is in Parque Roca
BTW, I said it in the pics thread, but José was the Arg. flagman in the ceremony

Yes - the term left-footed is very often used here to describe a footballer that favours his left foot for striking the ball. Thanks for the news.
