Finally Capdeville played like he's supposed to do. :) Paul served great, over 70% in 1st serve, which kept Schwank off the whole match. That helped Capdeville to find his rhytm and be more aggressive.
To be honest, Schwank never seemed interested on court... maybe it could have been the court, maybe just lack of spirits. Whatever it was, Eduardo played really poor.


Congrats to Paul.

Fillols pair of idiots, how in the earth they give to this guy Schwank, he did not wanted to win, he was almost trying, what a waste of WC. :mad:

Anyway, good for Paul, hope he can go deep here. Gimeno-Traver is next, not impossible. :yeah:

It's naive to think a racket would make such a difference in performance.

It makes, if u are not confrotable with a new kind of raquet it makes u deconcentrate from the match.. Besides we all know the BABOLAT q are lighter than others.

Perhaps his new racquet contributed to his clown-like performance, but I don't think it can be explained away that easily.......

His attitude was horrible, his shot selection ridiculous, he could have lost 6-0 6-0 if he hadn't randomly stepped up his level BP down combined with Capdeville choking his opportunities.

Capdeville even got tight at the end of the match going 0-30 down with a smash into the net and a df before Schwank did everyone a favour and gave up 4UEs to lose the game and match.

It was a joke of a performance and I doubt Schwank will ever be the recipient of another WC to Vina Del Mar.

Well done to Paul though :D

Honey, do you really think a pro would be stupid enough to change racket suppliers but take a racket he doesn't feel comfortable with? Every player uses a paintjob - whether to fake a different model of the same supplier (like Federer) or to fake a different brand (like Blake for a long time).

Yh great result for Paul but this shwank is carrying this year on like he ended last year which is poor to say the least, hes too hot and cold is Eduardo, needs to get more consistent, there was a chance to go deep this week, ah well good win for Paul.

schwank has very good groundstrokes, he is clearly a better player than capdeville but in this match he played really poor and didnt even bother running much.
