After broken in the 3rd set, Horna called it quit.

So does this mean there were retirements from Chucho and Lucho, the latter to the benefit of Mucho?

You're absolutely right :angel:

They have to find someone else whose Spanish nickname ends in "ucho" so they can form a barbershop quartet. Acasuso would be the bass tenor and Almagro would hit the high notes.

Gordo, but then if we're just going by "o" endings then you could throw Gato, Pico, Mago et al into the mix. Although a couple of them are in particularly poor voice at the moment.

Davydenko

Tough match for Almagro.

Whatever happens, I'm sure he will push him.

Even if he loses, I think he will move up a couple of places in the rankings, where he will reach a career high.

It seems Horna had a herniated disc problem and chose not to continue on with the match and make it worse jeopardising his chances for Davis Cup World Group play offs.

Almagro did well and hope he can give the PMK some trouble in their match.

If Almagro serves well and can execute his forehand often, then Davydenko may be in real trouble. Otherwise, eaaasy for PMK

Depends which Almagro shows up. He has a very heavy serve and can hit it with pace as well, if he uses it well, then he can have some success, but he has made a 3rd round of a hardcourt Slam that could be enough for him.

Just hope Lucho is ready for the Davis Cup.

These guys made for some very heavy hitting and Lucho can easily hang with Almagro when he is healthy.
