Or maybe Chino just luvs Salinas. Decent show up today with 6-4 6-2 over an opponent who played 2 semis in Ecuador before, so could have been tricky.

The other scores should be chased on the official page, probably the update will appear as soon as they'll finished.

Guys what are your sure picks for round 1?

Nathaliia
01-13-2009, 11:25 AM
Souza over Apud :lol:

Not the sure picks, but I saw people picking Mello over Becker as a value bet basing on Mello's last week style (and Becker was crap for a change) and regarding Giraldo's stomach problems he *could* lose to Daniel Silva :scratch: (also far from "sure bet" more like a value one). Tough to pick against Ecuadorians, usually one does well here. Maybe not necessarily Campozano will beat Mayer (low chance IMO) but maybe rather Avellan will beat Widom.

Just thinking aloud.
