Chucho returns back to the circuit and will play his home event, where he first made an impact on the tour.

Yes, it's the shitty RR format, but hopefully he can do well here and build up for the clay season in Europe.

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".

Everyone seems to live in Palermo.

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

If by everyone you mean tennis players, its reasonable.

The Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club and Vilas Club (two of the places where most of the players train) are in Palermo. Its an expensive neiborhood with beautiful gardens (the biggest in Bs. As.) and artificial lakes.

How many days of the tournament are you going to?

Don't know yet, in fact I don't know if I am going this year. I have to solve some issues related to work first.

Here is a picture of a part of Palermo, the courts of the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club and also some of the courts of the Vilas Club.

I lived there for years It´s one of the biggest, if not the biggest, neighbourhood. It´s not cheap, but it has its expensive and cheap parts. Chucho lives is an (expensive) zone that is usually compared to NY´s Soho (far from it obviously), btw.
Nice thread title
The best luck to Chucho. Time to play some clay matches, get back the points lost in Viña´s week and play infront of your home crowd.

Re: Misionero living in barrio Palermo and time to give to them misionero style

Palermo seems the place to be in Buenos Aires and thanks for the screen shot Willy. Big parklands, airport and as usual the wide streets.

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".

Looks like a nice spot, thanks for the info, Willy and Lau.

Good luck to Chucho, time to start getting back on track on the clay. I believe semis and finals are being broadcast here, so have selfish reasons as well for hoping he goes far here.

Not an easy match first up and hope Chucho can take out Roitman.

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".
