Nice one Pico. Probably a bit tougher than we had hoped, but at least he won.

Just keep winning ugly Piquito if it gets you the title. ;) He hasn't played on clay for a while and needs to regain his footing.

seriously. :lol:

And to think that, not long ago, after a picture of his was posted in that very same GM, someone was asking who the hell that guy was. MTF is such a funny place.

Very nice win there. And I can't understand why he's 'unconventially good looking' according to GM. He's gorgeous, thats it.

Very nice win there. And I can't understand why he's 'unconventially good looking' according to GM. He's gorgeous, thats it.

I think I might have said something like that too. If you look at him, he doesn't have a strong jawline and full lips, and his cheekbones are pretty high and wide set. That doesn't bother me because I find everything about Juan sexy (especially his hair and smile :drool:), but typically those features are considered less than perfect by society's unrealistic standards.

I don't necessarily think you need to look a certain way to be handsome or attractive.

And about this week, I'm really proud of Pico. It wasn't smooth sailing all along, but he's made it to the final and is just one win away from title number 4. I think that's really impressive when you consider he started 2007 still looking for his first title.

and now he is injured & pulled out of the final. This totally sucks, he was having such a great week. :sobbing:

Hopefully he will recover soon, points to defend & all.

This is horrible news. I think he would have taken the title if he had played the final, so yeah this sucks. I just hope it doesn't put him out of action for too long.

I feel like crying. This injury could take 5 months or more to heal, depending on the severity. :sobbing:

Poor, poor Juan :(. This is so unfortunate! He was playing so well and now this setback :(. According to LaNacion Juan will miss Davis Cup and probably ATP Buenos Aires as well.

Get well soon Juan!

Povero Juan

VIÑA DEL MAR, Chile(03-2-08) MONACO, GRAVE LESIÓN. El argentino Juan Mónaco sufrió un esguince grado dos en el tobillo izquierdo, con rotura de ligamentos, tras del choque contra la silla del juez cuando jugaba la final de dobles del ATP de Viña del Mar. Debido a esto, el tandilense queda afuera de la serie de Copa Davis que su país disputará la próxima semana ante Gran Bretaña en Buenos Aires.

Francisco Mastelli, su entrenador, dijo a una radio local, "Es un esguince grado dos, con rotura de ligamento. La Copa Davis queda descartada, es una lastima pero es así. A partir de ahora sólo pensar en las cosas que uno tiene que hacer para que esto pase y pueda seguir adelante".

http://www.lanacion.com.ar/deportiva...nota_id=984012

Juan Mónaco había ganado un puesto para la final derrotando a Santiago Ventura en semifinales por 6-2 6-4. Sin embargo, más tarde en el partido que disputaba junto a “Machi” González contra José Acasuso y Sebastián Prieto, Mónaco tropezó con una silla de un juez y se produjo un esguince de grado 2 acompañado de rotura de ligamento.

VIÑA DEL MAR.– Fue una jornada de contrastes para Juan Mónaco en el torneo de Viña del Mar ( 462.000 dólares en premios y puntos para el circuito, sobre polvo de ladrillo). Primero, Pico no dejó dudas y se metió en la final del certamen al vencer al español Santiago Ventura (88° del ranking de la ATP) por 6-2 y 6-4, en una hora y 15 minutos. Sin embargo, luego, en la final de dobles, sufrió un esguince de tobillo y su presencia en la definición de mañana quedó descartada y se especula con que también se perderá la serie de Copa Davis ante Gran Bretaña del fin de semana próximo.

Luego de vencer a Ventura, Mónaco jugó en pareja con Máximo González la final de dobles ante José Acasuso y Sebastián Prieto, en una definición con cuatro argentinos. Pico y su compañero habían perdido el primer set por 6-1 y caían en el segundo por 3-0, cuando Mónaco se torció un tobillo y debieron sacarlo de la cancha en brazos, según consigna la agencia AP.

De acuerdo con un despacho de la agencia ANSA, Mónaco sufrió un esguince de grado 2, según confirmó su entrenador, Francisco Mastelli, luego de que le realizaran estudios en el Hospital Clínica del Mar, de esta ciudad. Mastelli dijo que Pico descansará 48 horas para que se desinflame la zona afectada para, luego, ser enyesado.

This is real bad news :sad:
Poor Pico. Hope the injury doesn't turn out as serious as the rumours say. Some sources talk about a bad sprain and let's hope this is true and not the torn ligament...

Hey good news! Normally 3 to 4 weeks to recover but with intensive treatment some hope he might be able to defend BsAs! I suspect that's a little overly optimistic but still, 4 weeks is a lot better than 5 months. On the other hand I hope he doesn't try too hard to come back before he's ready, this is such a sucky time for him to get hurt, not that any time is good but this especially bad.
