It's good to see Chelita back. This was his first competitive match since his R2 encounter against Verdasco at RG last May, just over 8 months ago. He had the best season of his career in 2007 (better than his 2004 season IMO), and finished the year ranked at no. 20. His ranking has since plummetted down to no. 147. After RG last year, he initially picked up a back injury, but then more seriously struggled with the groin injury Athletic Pubalgia, and underwent surgery at the end of July. In the Copa Argentina exho in December, he won his QF against Nalbandian.
Hopefully he'll stay healthy this year and climb back up the rankings.

Welcome back to him. Never liked him, but am glad that the injury problems are over.

Chelita :yeah: hopefully he will at least get back near to his best ranking, and record some good Tenis Pro episodes for the tennis fans :)
