Very interesting draw. The most interesting one of this South American swing till now.

Fognini shouldn`t have any troubles to be one of the finalists if he plays decently. There are some interesting first round clashes like the ones of Berlocq vs Acasuso, Alcaide vs Machado, Aguilar vs Fognini, Lorenzi vs Farah.
There could be some interesting nice clashes in 1/4 between Lorenzi vs Fognini and Ramirez Hidalgo vs Berlocq.

The bottom half of the draw could be quite more predictable. Ramos Vińolas shouldn`t have many troubles to be one of the semifinalists. Ramon Delgado is not playing well but his confidence may raise playing at home soil but Prodon has been playing well lately (interesting match to see). Riba should have no troubles till 1/4 and see what happens there with the winner of Prodon/Delgado.

The way the players can develop under the weather circunstances will be a key factor as the heat and humidity of Paraguay will definitely affect some of them.

RRH has a really soft draw for at least two rounds, if he's healthy he should do well here.

Fabio has a good draw, he should make the SFs at least. Aguilar may be playing better but he doesn't have the game to defeat a player on the level of Fognini.

Santi v Dabul R1 again, hopefully Santi can take the positives from losing in B.A., but he won't. Ramos-Vinolas or Polaco should make the SFs there.

I really hope Nico wins this event, but I'm not sure. His first two rounds are winnable but tough.

Prodon v Delgado should be a good R1 match. Ramon needs to do well here as he's defending victory points. He's not been playing great so I don't expect much.

Chucho v Berlocq should be a easy win for Carlos. Not a good match-up coming back from injury. Hopefully Fede has a better week in Paraguay than he has been having, but I doubt it. He should win one match, though.

Good luck to my favorites!

It's going to be hard for him, he's been struggling, and Prodon quite frankly is better than him and has been playing well this season. So he's going to have to use the crowd support to pull himself to great heights.

Good for Galdon and for Trungelliti :yeah:

Shame that Velotti was unable to beat Heras who was a quite easy test for him. Definitely unexperience is paying Vellotti the bill. He will need to spend some more time on the Futures tour and alternate meanwhile with some Challenger quallies.

Good and really surprising result for Monteferrario :eek:

Fede please comeback to level of the first part of this season and take the title :rocker:

Fede is probably on his lowest level along the whole season. I don`t know if he is mentally tired or what but possibly the best for him will be to end the season asap.

I do still believe he is a good project but needs to develop in many departments yet to make the jump to play ATP tournaments.

He won't beat anybody serving like that. Right now he needs one of his amazing serving performances to beat a guy of Lorenzi's level.

Fede has completely fallen off a cliff in terms of level and effort. I don't know if it's fatigue, confidence, something more strenuous mentally, but he's having real problems now putting together good performances. Very disappointing loss from him today.

Fabio still doesn't seem right yet from the trip from Italy to South America, 10 DFs, a whole lot of struggling. But then again Fabio struggles like this a lot when he's going good so you never know.

Aguilar won 46% of service points.

Santi is going the same route as Oscar, but at least Oscar showed glimpses of his good self. And he has an injury excuse. Santi just doesn't seem to give a fuck anymore, but maybe he's injured. Hopefully he puts this season behind him and starts out fresh next season.

Galdon is a talented player, I wonder why he's never been able to do much. That's a good result for him. ARV, gotta cut out losses like these to fully progress.

Dabul isn't a clay court player, he's not had good results so far in the Copa Petrobas. Wonder if he can hold his ranking till the end of the year. Ciric has improved and hitting 25 aces is monster, congrats to him on the win.

Fabio just hasn't acclimated himself to South America yet, I wonder if he plays better next week in Santiago. Machado should now have good chances at a semifinal.

I think Rui has chances to win this event, if he plays well, he definitely can win the SF match. I don't expect him to beat Riba or Ciric, though. At least he's healthy, a final here, good runs in Santiago/Sao Paolo, he could be top 100. It would be nice to see him in there, in fact the more veteran clay courters in the top 100 the better.

Ciric's game is based off his big serve, and pretty much he's a power player. If he beats Riba that would show me he's in really good form, making him dangerous in the final. In normal circumstances, Riba would win this event since he's the best player left in it, but anything can happen.

Although Berlocq is playing really well tonight and has been for the most part the last months, Rui is a different player than RRH, and he definitely can beat Charly. He has a good serve, so he should be able to hold better than RRH is doing tonight. He likes being offensive when he has the opportunities. He just needs to get a high percentage of first serves in and be aggressive, return effectively. He can't be passive and allow Berlocq to be the one dictating.

Rui probably would want to play Ciric but if Ciric is hot then it will be tough either way. Ciric is less consistent than Riba so that would give Machado better chances.

Like I say from the begining Rui has very good chances agains Berloq. I'm just saying that will not be easy, but it's like 50-50, to me.

And I don't know Ciric, but with your description of him, I guess that he depends of his serve. And when is serve is on fire, it's very very hard to stop him. But I guess looking at the ranking than his days of "on-fire serve" doesn't happen that many times

That was one of the best matches I've seen from Charly, from about the first set to 4-0 in the second. He just outhit RRH, hit big first serves, dictated all rallies. He's improved his game a whole hell of a lot since his comeback from injury.

Yeah, I would say 50-50, I agree.

Ciric has just now of late started putting decent performances together on a more consistent basis. He seems to be playing with a lot of confidence, which makes him scary. But if everything stays regular to what anyone would expect in terms of rankings and history, Rui would win that match. But first things first, he's gotta win the SF tomorrow!

Inspite of Delgado is playing at home soil it`s amazing that Riba lost that match. At this stage of his career he is losing some matches that he should be winning. He has been playing a lot this year so I guess that he might be mentally quite tired. This is a great result for Ramon and he is the favourite today to be one of the finalists.

Shame that Charlie was unable to reach the title has he had a good chance. Congrats for Machado for the victory.

Congrats aswell for Ramon who is the favourite to win the title as he turns himself stronger playing in home soil.

Uhh...not sure what you're smoking but by any possible standard GGL is indeed a damn good tennis player.

GGL will be a top-30 player tomorrow, way better than any Portuguese :shrug:

Congrats to Machado for winning the title.

I'm saying in ATP level. All diffrent levels. Machado belong to Challengers. Ramon WAS a good player, and have a good tournament in his home country, like he used too, but really Machado outplayed him today. It would be a tennis crime if he lost here...

[7] Rui MACHADO (POR) vs Ramon DELGADO (PAR) 6-2 3-6 7-5

Machado should be ca. 102nd tomorrow, but players above him - Korolev and Gaba have some points to defend next week (korolev will not play), so Top100 could be the place for Machado since 25/10

fanboyism :baby:

Ramon won 2nd set because of unbeliveble BP's wasted by Rui. That was always the problem for him. But in the 3rd set he finally took his chances. This should be decided in straights, if he wasn't the mental weakness of Machado in key points...

Devastating result for Ramon. He had this one by just battling, but he lost it in the end, so close. Feel sorry for him.

Congrats to Rui, one of the best wins in his career.
