WTF willy? You are a shame to my country. Our favorite son has a lot of work to do if he wants to raise the RG trophy this year.

Chela is coming in form and is doing well, he played well guillermo didnt, many errors from his racket uncharacteristically.

I called this last night. But The sets were more one sided than I thought.

Again Canas really has done nothing special this year on clay.

Oh Willy :hug: :hug: :hug:

Anyway, congrats to Chela. No use being mad at him... (or maybe just a little :angel: )

Chela is so much stronger mentally than Canas. Congrats to Ignacio!

Well done from Chela - definitely the steadier of the two today.

Canas - too many UEs in the third set when I was watching - he just seemed flat today compared to how he has played at times this year.

But then Chela is the sort of player who will put a lot of balls back - he's no Federer, he won't go for point ending shots at the earliest opportunity. His persistence looked to be frustrating Canas, who coughed up errors when the rallies went long.

Still, bit of a wasted chance for Canas today.

Chela vs Hewitt in R2 - that's fun.

Wind played an important factor aswell... thought Willy would be winning this one... anyways, I know he'll be showing us some tennis in RG.
Good one for Chela!

It saddens me to say this but it looks like the 2 wins over federer in the US were just flukes.

Congrats to Chela, and as for Cañas, I don't want to see any "he was tired" excuses this time. :)

you cant beat federer twice and say its a fluke, just cause your ljubicic hasnt beaten federer since he was a kid.

Not necessarily. It was on hard court and maybe Canas is playing better on that surface. In any case Chela is just ranked one spot less than Canas so this was supposed to be a tough match for Canas.

Chela is on a role and this result is no surprise.
Well done JIC :yeah:

Canas has never made the QF's of a clay TMS event I believe. No surprise here.

Canas winning RG seems about as likely as Ljubicic winning any slam right now.

That was always the case but posters only choose to focus on two wins against a sub-par Federer.

TennisMaster was the only Cañas fan who said willy is going to win roland garros and he is a biased fan boy

so he is not very overrated

btw Chela is a very good player, so this loss is not a shame.

Chela is a very good player

Oh I know, I just love to point out when Canas losses but teh Canas fans are getting less and less annoying the more he losses, kinda like the Ljubicic fans.

Bye-bye, Cañas... :wavey:
Anyone knows if was perhaps tanking the match to save energy for RG? I didn't have the chance to see the match, so if I'm suggesting something stupid here, my wrong.

Congrats to Chela! :hatoff:

this was always going to be a close match, though i expected willy to win. i think perhaps there is suddenly a lot of pressure to perform after beating federer...he didn't have as much pressure in those US tournaments..hope he can snap out of it before RG

he needs to get back to south america asap
and load up for RG

Exactly. Said from the start that I didn't like his draw. Chela is a good player and I knew it was gonna be tough. I'd expected it to be a closer match however.

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: Most of his fans' comments wouldn't even have been posted if it weren't because of all the haters getting on his back every time he played....

Aww Willy... :hug: :hug:

That's not a good start to my week at all .. :sad:

I really expected a much closer match, wish I could have seen it.

Still, nicely done by Chela, congrats! :hatoff:

Willy has all the game,but I think his main problem is that he is not fully fit after almost 2 years off court.I think his body cant stand all these tough matches all the time,at least for now.He should reduce his schedule till he's fully fit to play.

You're staying consistent though. You don't like Canas and/or his fans. I'm sure everyone gets it by now, give it a rest now, no?

Canas will probably still reach the 2nd week of Roland Garros. I don't think he'll be too worried about Rome and Hamburg.

Chela has been playing very well all year, this is no surprise. Canas has played a lot recently, and he's not exactly a spring chicken anymore. That could have something to do with it. Also like someone said, he's never made it to the QF of a TMS clay event, so again, no surprise here.

Ok I have just rationalized about this lose, Willy didnt care about Rome and Hamburg, he is saving all that energy for RG.

Ther will be no excuses come RG as Willy has lots of time too rest up for his magical French Open run :rocker2:

Just means Chela will take out Hewitt instead of Canas. Willy has never really done well in Rome or Hamburg.

The chubby one has been playing very well this season and kudos for that.

Chela has a had a good year so far with one title and 3 masters series quarter-finals. Hopefully he'll beat Hewitt fairly comfortably in the next round.

Chela won't make 40 unforced errors like Calleri did.
