I wonder if officials are really watching these matches. They should do something about it. After a dogfight in the 1st set in which Ventura wasted 2 setpoints - they were involved in the funniest 2nd set I have watched lately.

Ventura invented somenew shots in this one - dropshot lobs, smashed with a frame of the racket (!!! that was awesome, pity that it was missed), no-look behind the back shots etc.

Poor, Ventura should be ashamed of this complete lack of effort and arrogance

Ventura knows Gimeno is tough on clay...and recetly he wasnt playing well or minded stable..just remember his performances last year in Sao Paulo CH, very badly...Gimeno is probably a good challenge to Bellucci on 2nd round...

Nice to see the clown lose. Gimeno-Traver might have a good chance to go far in this tournament. Bellucci had a really tough week in Santiago...

Santiago is very arrogant in court indeed.

Ventura should just hurry up and retire if he's not going to fight.

Wah wah, Ventura is the man.

Not sure DGT will be solid enough to take out Bellucci in the next round.
