Promising performance under tough conditions. Juan Martin maturing fast.

Very solid. Started somewhat slow, going for the safe shot and not making msitakes (which I think was smart) and ended the match with a more offensive attitude.

I'm surprised by how strong minded he was, never losing focus in the game.

Re: Juan wants the salad bowl!!! Argentina vs. Russia <> Davis Cup Semis


And I got to watch it!!!
He played great in the second and third sets!
So glad I found this kid 2 years ago! I just knew he was going to be good; just needed to grow into his body and mature. And mature mentally he did!!!
This is a first for me- choosing a player who appears to have brains
And I think he and Nalby must have a great relationship. The long hug at the end was sweet..................

I thought so too.
The way things are going, David will fail to defend his titles in Madrid and Bercy. Perhaps it's better for him that way for many reasons...

Now, win the Cup, Argentina!!!

And, Juan Martin should feel very comfortable in his next tournament. He will be playing at his "natural" place.

Yes, Kamikaze is coming to Tokyo!!!

AWESOME!!!!!!!! So solid under such huge pressure The kid has become a man!

It must feel so good for him after all the bad luck he had last season with the injuries.
Let's hope he can keep up the form now and stay healthy!
