Maximo Gonzalez -- a new clay court champion?

TankingTheSet
09-04-2007, 05:50 AM
Maximo Gonzalez is probably the most improved player on the challenger circuit -- winning three challengers in a month. With few points to defend into 2008 he should be able to make the top-100 if he remains fit, and make his presence felt in ATP tournaments...

He is 24 years old and seems to be breaking through now.

Aguante gaudio!!
09-04-2007, 04:12 PM
Machi is on fire!!! Come on...

He is a very powerful player, had the chance to watch him training once, and playin doubles with Roitman at BsAs this year.

If he is mentally fit, he should be able to break the top100 easily.

He is now playing in Brasov Challenger...
He passed first round and his next rival is Manuel JORQUERA

Haile Selassie

He is a great player, i have seen him playing in many matches. He should break the top 100 but if he break the top 75 will be a joke.

Great season.Go Machi!

He seems to be taking a long break after his success, hope nothing is wrong. I assume he will return for the better South American clay challengers next month.

He will be back for to South America soon. Probably he will have a great run in the Petrobras Cup.

Actually he is playing the doubles event at Argentina F18 (10.000 $)...
this tournament is being played at his hometown Tandil, and he is partnering with Diego Junqueira (this guy is playing the singles event too)

he won 1st and Quarterfinals.. and tomorrow play Semifinals against a succesful doubles team at Argentina Futures . Jonathan Gonzalia/Diego Lopez

Machi played two great matches in Hamburg this week. On Tuesday it was his birthday and his fanclub was very sweet and sang happy birthday to him before and after the match :) He really appreciated this and was very happy :)

In Bastad Golubev was unfortunately too strong for Machi, he did not have a chance. It is the same Golubev who just won Hamburg, so no shame for this result.

I really loved to see Machi in Bastad and Hamburg. He was very nice to his fans and gave his all on the court. It is nice to have him back, I missed him!! Vamos Machi!!!!

Machi is one match away from a comeback into the top 100 after his injury, in the finals of Santiago challenger v Eric Prodon. He's had a good start to the season, making the QF of the ATP event in Santiago and qualifying in Acapulco. Let's hope he wins and gets that top 100 position!

Unfortunately for Machi, after entering the top 100 again in March of last season after recovering from his torn-ACL injury in the offseason of 2010, his level of play has significantly fallen off and he is now currently injured.

After winning the Santiago challenger over Prodon in the finals, Machi made the SF of St. Breiuc challenger a couple of weeks afterward, and then qualified for Monte Carlo and won his first round match at the tournament, defeating Hanescu in R1 before losing a very tough match to Almagro in the second round. Unfortunately, Machi went on a 12 match losing streak immediately afterward, and didn't win another match until September. After a R1 US Open loss to Wawrinka, Machi won the challenger in Campinas, made the finals of Montevideo, SF of Buenos Aires challenger and two other QFs, but his ranking fell to a year end #121 after failing to defend points from 2010.

In 2012, Machi started with a QF in the Bucaramanga challenger in Colombia, but suffered an injury and has not played since Buenos Aires qualifying, where he lost in R1. Hopefully he will be able to return soon and make a march back into the top 100. Injuries have really harmed him throughout the years and it would be nice to see him have a few healthy seasons as he gets into the final years of his career.

Machi returned from his leg injury this week in Blumenau but was forced to retire in the final round of qualifying vs Brizzi down 1-4 in the third set. He was up 6-2 5-2, but started having issues with his leg by the end of the second set. Very unfortunately to not take advantage of his lead, as Brizzi has cruised into the QF at the event.

Machi is down to #191 in the provisional rankings now. Hopefully he can recover his full shape and gets a bit of luck on his side.
