Is the tournament going to be played inspite all the political troubles? as far as I heard the airport of Quito was closed.

The main list has some really interesting names. I would have liked to see some of them in Buenos Aires like Farah, Souza, Salamanca, Daniel, Silva and Hocevar :sad:

Marcos needs to win this event if he realistically wants a top 100 finish to the season. He better start making something happen.

There are several players with similar chances to win the title like Joao Souza, Julio Silva, Farah and Carlos Salamanca. Will see what Marcos Daniel can do against Estrella who has been playing quite well lately.

Good luck for Sebastian Decoud :yeah:

Filo V.
10-04-2010, 05:10 AM
With Salamanca playing some tough matches in Colombia, I expect Marcos to make the final at least. He just beat Estrella in Bogota and the other players are not on his level, including Decoud who I wouldn't be surprised loses early and may himself be tired. This is a must win event for Marcos and I expect nothing less than a victory, nor will I be satisfied unless he wins it. So, hopefully he gets it done!

Secure win for J„o, great. Served like a beast it seems, dropped only 6 points on serve the whole match, 3 on first serve. Top 100 is getting closer now.

Great serving dipslay by Farah as well, 18 aces in 2 sets on clay is a great number.

Rogťrio in another quarterfinal, great moment for him. Didn't think he would improve like this judging by his last year.

It's beyond over for Marcos. It's over. He's done as a good player. He's over the hill. These three weeks were events where he should be great at, and having great results, and he's lost back to back weeks to a mediocre challenger player not even inside the top 400. These weeks were the time for him to start producing good results to have a real opportunity at making the top 100. He's done. 32 years old, he had a good ride, all good things come to an end.

Have you ever seen Alejo playing? Or are you saying he is mediocre by pure guess. He is a good player and I'm pretty sure he hasn't beat Marcos twice in a row for nothing.

Great win for Alejo, and as for Marcos he still has tennis to stay close to the top 100 and even break into it, he just needs to win some challenger and be effective in the others. That's how these guys break into top 100 generally and he still has tennis to do so, although it will be much more difficult than it was before.

Good for Hocevar to reach the quarters too, good match against Giovanni coming.

That's how these guys break into top 100 generally and he still has tennis to do so, although it will be much more difficult than it was before.

Good for Hocevar to reach the quarters too, good match against Giovanni coming.

I've seen him play about 3 times. He's no top level player, he's a challenger journeyman clay courter. That is what he is, he's mediocre in that he's not someone who you ever would believe can or should beat a player on the level of Marcos. Daniel at a GOOD state would not lose to Gonzalez. Also, in a good state, Marcos dominates these types of challengers. But as we have seen pretty much the entire year, Marcos has been unhealthy and not playing well. I wonder about his motivation. These three weeks were his major opportunity to make the top 100 with weaker draws in areas where he generally does great, and he failed miserably. So, I'm not sure he has the game to make the top 100 anymore. He'll need to look at Sao Paulo and Medellin as opportunities, but I've lost faith, although not support.

He's 32 and the clay field is deeper than ever, so it's going to be an uphill battle.

Robert had all kinds of chances to win it, a bad loss given the situation.

Decoud predictably destroyed Gonzalez, which basically proves me right about Daniel.

Good victories for Feijao and Gio also. Souza can make the top 100 if he wins this event.

Another good week for Joao :yeah:. He should be the favourite to win in the semifinal match against Dutra da Silva.

Giovanni seems to be in good form and playing in home soil is helping his confidence. Clay is not his favourite surface but is still going on . Good victory that one against Hocevar. He is the favourite to win that SF match against Sebas Decoud who is having another good week. Just hope to be wrong and to see a final match between Joao and Sebas :).

As for your answer Ivan, Gio's entire game is based off his serve, he's a hard court player mostly, his groundstrokes are not great, especially the backhand, and he's a mediocre returner.

The result was even closer than I would had expected considering that the height of Quito is really helpful for a player like Giovanni Lapentti.

Vamossssss.

Serving stats for Feij„o are amazing at this moment, 15 aces, 92% of first serves won and he put 71% of first serves in. Didn't face any break points.

Tomorrow I suppose him and Giovanni will serve well, so the title will go to the one who makes the most of his opportunities and/or the one being more clutch at hypothetical tiebreaks. Hope it's J„o, he would crack into the top 100 I guess.

This thing of Veronelli coaching Feij„o is a bit strange, he has always been part of the Amil team which is commanded by Ricardo Acioly.

Yayo coaches Giovanni?

Who is Marcaccio coaching now?

Go Lapentti! Must win at home. Not like Darcis :D I think yesterday's super tie-break against Decoud will inspire him.

Cacho coaches Machi? Nice.

I still don't understand how it works with Veronelli. I guess Feij„o is still a member of the Amil team (he wears the same shirt he has always used) but La Flaca is the full time coach now, traveling with him and Hocevar (who has never been a member of the Amil team).

Not too surprising, congrats Gio on the home country final! Definitely played inspired this week, and did the crowd proud of his performances.

Feijao missed a great opportunity at making the top 100, he's going to be kicking himself. But regardless, he's been showing some good form, let's see if he can continue to play well when he enters the Petrobas series starting in Santiago.

Caio_Brasil
10-11-2010, 12:30 AM
The top 100 will eventually come, no doubt about it. It seems Jo„o's serve wasn't too effective on sets 2 and 3 today. Still it's good to see him in good form.

At least the title went to Giovanni who is a great guy, I'm happy for him. Rare success in a tough year for him.

Shame that Joao coudn`t win. It was a good week overall and his performance on the last month was more than acceptable. Maybe in the next Challenger tournaments can finally earn the points that may allow him to jump to the top 100. Good luck for him
