Chucho d. Volandri 3-6 6-4 6-4 :dance:

Nice win for Acasuso. I saw both the 2nd and the 3rd sets and it was a really hard match. Chucho took advantage of Volandri's poor serve to come back in both sets, but it could easily have gone to the Italian's side.

Chucho seemed very emotional in the end and hit the hand closed in his chests. Chucho is back to the final and now has the chance to win his first title at home.

Action Jackson

Tough loss for Chucho to Almagro 6-4 3-6 7-5

He played quite well in parts and got some treatment for his calf, just a bit of stiffness.

Tough for the big man he lead 3-1 in the 3rd set, but couldn't hold the momentum, which was lost with one silly service game.

Almagro's over celebration at the end of the match left him more pissed off than before.

He lost to Lucho/Calleri 6-2 6-1 in the doubles as well.

03-01-2008, 11:00 AM

I was there for his match in Indian Wells. He came out and played the first 5 games with great serving and unbelievable ground strokes and took the early break of serve and was running away with the set when the wind kicked up. He was on an outer court and the wind was blowing 30mph. Horrible conditions to play. He got so frustrated. He had a bad practice session that morning because of the wind too. The day before there was no wind and he played great in practice.

Great to be proven wrong and he was very solid today. He pulled the trigger pretty much at the right moments and even the slice backhand was working quite well.

Chucho played quite well for the 1st set, but a few dumb points cost him in the TB. Federer's serving was excellent and kept Chucho off balance, he got down on himself in the 2nd set.

The ATP site listed his retirement from his match today as "stomach". On the Tennis Channel this week they are showing reruns of the final at the Movistar Open from 2006. He needs to regain that form again. Hopefully, he will in the next few weeks.

Although he lost 2-6 6-3 3-6 today in San Remo to Balleret, these past couple of weeks have been very successful for Jose. He's ranked 112 now and is about one good result away from the top 100, which means main draws at ATP events during the summer clay court season and US Open main draw. He seems healthy and fit and that's what's most important. As he showed last week, when he is playing well he's too good for most challenger players. This week is just what happens when you lack matches, his consistency, conditioning and match toughness will all be improved as he plays more matches.

He is scheduled to play the Bordeaux challenger next week before RG qualifying the week after. Good luck these next weeks Chucho!

Chucho is in France to play the Bordeaux challenger, here is the draw:

http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2010/3824/mds.pdf

Chucho is playing Edouard Roger-Vasselin in the first round, not an easy match, he's a good player and this is in France so he should be motivated. A win and he would play either Przysiezny/Clement in the 2nd round so there are no easy matches at a tournament this deep. If Jose plays well he can beat any of these players, so we'll see what happens this week.

Good luck Chucho and hopefully you make a deep run in this tournament!

Chucho loses in the 3rd round of qualifying 4-6, 0-3 to Jorge Aguilar.
Sad result for Chucho today, as I was really looking forward to see him in the main draw.

I was sorry too that he had to retire during his match yesterday. Do you know if it was his knee again? I hope not.

He is on the entry list of lots of challengers this month, so I guess he is good to go again...

You can look it up in the Challenger section of this forum.
He has pulled out of the first one, next week :sad:

There is a video of Chucho on SegundoSaque.com explaining what he has been up to. Mainly hitting the gym
and working with his trainer. I hope he starts playing again next week too.

Chucho is back on the tour after knee problems and will play van der Merwe in the 1st round of Cali.

Does anyone know where to find more information about Acasuso's status, plans, injury, etc.? Does he have a website that he reports on his efforts? I haven't been too succesful in searching google and Argentinian news/blogs. I saw him in Indian Wells a few years ago and later in New Haven and the US Open and like his game. There don't seem to be too many reports about his recent injury and efforts to compete. I see he won one and lost one in Cali.

Thanks

I also first saw him play in Indian Wells a few years ago and really liked his game, and have been a fan ever since. It is very hard to find info on him, but the best source is a newspaper in his hometown in Misiones, Argentina. A good friend of his writes the articles and said that he has been out with a hip injury he sustained in the qualies of Roland Garros. You can read the articles yourself in this newspaper. Type in his name and it will bring up all the old articles on him. He also was nominated a few months ago for a JCI award, along with this friend, and the ceremony was a month ago. He is playing in a challenger in Buenos Aires next week.

He pulled out of BA with an elbow injury, hope it's not back to weeks out again...

Thanks for the info. Finally a source of some tidbits about Chucho. Knee, hips, and now elbow problems. Sounds like age creeping in... I saw on live internet coverage one of his challenger matches in Tunis. He was serving in a modified motion to land on his right leg rather than the left leg. I guess this is because he still felt pain in the knee. He won that tournament regardless.

Chucho got a WC in a Asuncion this week, playing his first round match against Berlocq.

Lost to Berlocq, but he's not playing next week and don't see him in next week's entry list of Sao Paolo. Any news?
He is 8th alternate in Medellin, so he might play there.

GOOSE

I don't understand why he doesn't maintain a website for fans to follow. Hard to determine what he is doing and why he's in then out of tournaments. Does anyone have a better way to follow him other than looking up player entries in local tournaments?

He is not on the Sao Paolo entry list and can't find any news from him anywhere. Anyone knows what his plans are for 2011?
