Já em Cincinnati, Guga bate bola com Hewitt (Already in Cincinnati , Guga training with Hewitt in this saturday)

Da Redação
Em São Paulo

Gustavo Kuerten já está em Cincinnati, onde a partir de segunda-feira será disputado o sétimo dos nove Masters Series desta temporada. O brasileiro vai estrear contra um rival vindo do qualifying. Se passar pela estréia, provavelmente terá pela frente o australiano Lleyton Hewitt, que faz seu primeiro jogo contra o fraco americano Alex Bogomolov Jr.

Apesar da possibilidade de se enfrentarem logo na segunda rodada, os dois tenistas, ambos ex-número um do ranking, combinaram de treinar juntos neste sábado.

Em Cincinnati, Guga faz seu segundo torneio desde Roland Garros. Nesta semana, após vencer dois jogos -entre eles um contra o britânico Tim Henman, quinto do mundo-, o brasileiro caiu nas oitavas-de-final do Masters Series de Toronto, diante do tcheco Jan Hernych.

O torneio americano é o último de Guga antes da Olimpíada, que ele elegeu -pelo menos em suas declarações- como prioridade da temporada.

Guga and Hewitt seem to be practising already for the second round :lol:

But the first round might not be easy for Guga. There are many dangerous players in qualifiying (Rusedski, Arthurs, Tursunov :eek:, Karlovic ...).

I think that if Guga can beat Tim, who is marvelous on the fast courts (aka grass), then he should be able to take on any qualifier. As long as Guga's fitness is god, then his game will be all right. We're already seeing signs of his former self!

We have to be optimistic!

The Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten goes to face the stranger Yen-Hsun Lu, of Taiwan, in the first one twirled of the Masters Series de Cincinnati. The departure will be carried through in this monday, for return of 22h (of Brasilia). The two players had never faced themselves in the professional circuit. The match is the last one of Guga before the Games Olímpicos de Atenas. Lu, number 92 of ranking of entrances of ATP and 145 of the Race of the Champions, obtained its vacant in the main key, in this sunday, when surpassing the Israeli Noam Okum, for 6/3 and 6/1. The adversary of Kuerten, that goes to complete 21 years in next day 14, dispute with frequency matches of the Cahllenger category, below of the ATPs, but its better resulted this year was to have fond in the eighth-of-end of the ATP of Queen's, in London. Guga has good retrospecto in Cincinnati. In 20 games, it gained 15 and he was champion in 2001, with a fantastic campaign, winning the American Andy Roddick, the German Tommy Haas, the Croatian Goran Ivanisevic, the Russian yevgeny Kafalnikov, the English Tim Henman and the Australian Patrick Rafter, the two last ones in the same sunday. All the adversaries were specialists in square fast, as the hard floor of the match. Beyond the heading in 2001, Kuerten was semifinalista in 2000, it arrived Anas fourth in 1997 and 99 and was eliminated in the first one twirled in 2002 and 2003. It did not dispute in 1998.

I'm in the same boat as you star {like them both a lot}, so many of my faves are meeting early in this tourney. :( Well I like Guga more than Lleyton so go Guga! :bounce:
{also if Guga beats Lleyton, he'll save Tim from enduring another potential loss to his uber conqeror :rolleyes: }

So well done to Guga and keep winning. :D

hopefully both of them keep it up, I've got Shannon convince (thanks to you bugging her) that if Marat and Guga keep going and play each other that we are going out to watch them play :)
9 hours driving one way, :eek: but it would be worth it to see those 2 play each other :cool:

Sad to hear Guga had no chance against Hewitt. It´s no shame to loose against Hewitt, but he should have made it close. He definitly has to raise his level if he wants to win a medal in the Olympics.
