fortunatelly people in JM thread was very nice and had no problem to open a livescore ther in JM thread and they appreciated it! we had fun and JM won the point
Thats because, we (the JMDP fans) are much more tolerant, respectful, intelligent, good looking, well.... just better than Chucho's fans.
another thing: Chucho had just a cold, and he said yesterday night that he was ready to play. Some other players as Cañas and Callery played with fever before. Chucho wasn't playing well..I said it in my report against Koubek (even winning he didn't play well) and he played worse in the doubles. So I don't think Mancini took the decision just considering the cold of Chucho, of course it was a circumstance...but at same time, we had JMDP physical conditions that you remarked about not being able to play 5 sets. So i think there were some tennis issues going on, not just physical conditions.
I agree with the bold
part. Chucho would have played if we had in the team another player instead of Del Potro (in fact, Chucho said that in an interview).
Mancini was thinking to play Juan Martín on Friday, instead of Chucho. So Acasuso would be fresh to play the doubles and on Sunday. But Del Potro told Mancini that he wasn't sure he was ready to play, considering he had never finished a 5 set match before.
Chucho lacked match practice and it was very difficult for him to play 3 days, so after the doubles he was replaced by a fresh player and that counted. Melzer had to play 3 days straight and this was Juan's first match of the weekend.
Well, I still don´t think Juan is the best player on fast surfaces in the team and Mancini was wrong about the decision he made when he chose Cañas as second singles player of the team for the draw.
