And about Trombetta, nope don't know much about him. I do know that he has struggled to win futures matches and that qualifying here and almost beating Bagnis is his best result so far.

Salamanca trashed Poch-Gradin, Capdeville is trashing Falla and Massu is close to a loss against Struvay, who has been a threat in Bogotá challengers for a while.

Strange way things came down in Bogota this week. I expected a Colombian to win which I believed it was going to be Giraldo or Falla but I would have never pay a single penny for Farrah! Well done though and congratulations for his 1st Challenger victory in his first appearance :eek:.

BTW, it`s a shame that this Challenger with this prize money /points had such poor field but definitely it should be moved to another time of the calendar where there are other tournaments on the region and in that way tghey would get more profit of it.

Filo V.
07-18-2010, 09:57 PM
I'm impressed by Farah. He has a good serve and both his ground shots are good. Also good net game, and passible mobility. I've always liked his game, I'm not too surprised he is doing so well right now. He seems like the type that will get to a certain level, and then find it hard to move past that level IMO, so we'll see if he can keep this hot streak going.

JMG
07-18-2010, 10:27 PM
Salamanca clearly looked like the better player to me. Didn't see the first set, but since then Farah was only better in the tb. The second set was great, Salamanca hit some nice return winners there.

Smoke944
07-18-2010, 10:36 PM
To be honest Farah played his worst match of the week today. Not much was working and he had to gut it out. Fortunately he did, but I'm not that surprised as he is very good in tight moments....
