Chucho doesn't look stoned!!

I read in the MG that some people says that Chucho always looked stoned on court! even they put the word "smoke" before his name

I don't think he looks stoned at all...The thing is that he is from Misiones, a State in Argentina in the NorthEast, and it is a very hot State, some much heat...he has the look of a provinciano (from the inner land) sleeping his siesta!!

Lighten up, it's a joke and we know he is from the country and always looks asleep or a bit stoned.

It adds to his appeal actually.

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".

Thanks, George...i like his look and it is so much appealing to me...but i don't like to think he is stoned, i like more to think he is from Misiones and he is sleeping a siesta ...it sounds better to me ...i don't think to call any poeple "stoned" is a good joke...My opinion!!

Misiones is a state, not a country...the country is Argentina and this country has a lot of different weathers and landscape. Sure you know that, i am just remaking things..The one of Misiones is a letargic one with so much sun and all the lengends about indios....I think it is more funny to think about this...Sorry, again, i am just telling my opinion, George!

Re: Chucho doesn't look stoned!!

one thing more, George, about the smoke thing: i don't like it also because i found more and more people telling argentines players are doping players...Even Brad Gilbert said that in an article about what will be the tennis 2006 he said no one of the Argentines will not improve in the tour because they are all cheaters!(horrible thing to say!!):

Re: Chucho doesn't look stoned!!

there is no smoke without the fire

But Chucho is very appealing and we all joke about his "stoned" look because that's exactly what it looks like, but he's adorable

of course he looks adorable....but not because he looks "stoned" but sleepy!
as a misionero has to look! sleepy and "provinciano"....
his fire doesn't come from a "smoking thing" it comes from another better inner source!!

Ok, smoking the green isn't performance enhancing and Brad Gilbert is an idiot and still has egg on his face when he said Chucho had a weak serve and a poor backhand.

I am still going to refer to him as a stoner, just like I call Coria a weasel, except with Chucho, it's done in a good way.

Well I am well aware of Argentine geography and know Misiones is a region, but anything outside of Buenos Aires is considered the countryside by porteños. Hence coming from a small place like myself I know the deal with certain regional stereotypes, the only thing is that the region changes and not the jokes.

Just understand it is not an insult to Chucho at all.

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

Re: Chucho doesn't look stoned!!

I can understand why some think the stoned joke isn't funny. And I'm gonna respect their opinion. But, personally, having had the opportunity to watch him play in Metz (doubles final) and having watched him closely for some time before his final, I would say that the stoned comment was suited. No matter how he looks and what ppl say about him, I like him the way he is.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Me too!

i watched him closely too in Miami 2003...and i have to say he doesn't look stoned to me again! i think ppl just confused a look "so-much-sleepy-misionero" with a stoned one, tha's all!! But is is totally understable for ppl that is not from Argentina!

yes, George, i can understand that!! i am just telling my point. I live in Buenos Aires BUT i am not a porteña!!! i am from another small region so close to Misiones called Entre Ríos, (we called here the whole region El litoral)..so why i know something more about Misiones, i am from the same group of states in Argentina...
and i never react as a porteño!!!

I remember I was with a friend there. And I have to say she absolutely didn't know anything about him. And I didn't tell her anything neither. But, when she saw him, she simply asked "hey, does that guy know he's got a final to play soon?" I just had to laugh......I answered she shouldn't worry. That appearences might be tricky....She said herself, after the match, that there was no need to worry!!

Re: Chucho doesn't look stoned!!

His "Bob Marley" look in his old ATP profile pic didn't help either, imo. It was a terrible pic.
Anyway, I agree with the other posters, people don't mean it as an insult, don't worry!
