this should be the year of the breakthrough for Fabio and the clay season started as good as it could be

Pretty easy draw for Fabio, should see Monaco in the semis.

Not particularly shocking...much is expected of Fabio, while Chela continues his dismal start to the season. :tape:

Chela will drop down the rankings this year, me thinks.

Well done to Fabio. Despite the fact that he is ranked 79 places below Chela, and that Chela was the 2nd seed, this result isn't a surprise at all. Chela has been in poor form recently, and his record at this event sucks. He has lost his last 5 matches at Chile, and his only victory at the event came back in 2000 when it was held at Santiago.

Not tremendously surprising but still very disappointing for Juan. I think if he'd won that match against Djokovic, his last few months could've put him at a career high ranking.

Chela had his best ever season in 2007, compiling his best ever results across the grand slams and masters series events in a single year, winning a title at Acapulco, and finishing the year ranked in the top 20. I'm another person who expects him to struggle to match those achievements this year.
