---------------------------------
First of all, I want you to know that I am very happy about the opening of my father's academy in Venado Tuerto, Santa Fe. The fact that I feel truly identified with my city is not a secret and now I have another reason to go back there every time I am in Argentina.

I trust in my father very much because I am where I am thanks to him. He loves tennis as much as I do, and he will be working with a team of tennis instructors that share our own philosophy.

My idea is to be able to talk a lot with the instructors and pass on my experience to them, exchange opinion and give them my own vision of what I felt during my first steps as a professional player.

We have the time to improve everything little by little, to be able to build a concrete court to stimulate offensive games and bring near many of the professionals that work or have worked with me at some moment. This development will entail a quality jump according to the tennis level that is currently being played all over the world.


I am in Barcelone right now. I have been training for a week and a half and I'm trying to gain the weight and mobility that I have lost after the operation. I am running about 7 or 8 kilometers a day at a good pace. Besides, I complement my working out with 2 hours in the gym where I train with rubber bands to gain strength in my shoulder. Possibly, next week I will lift weight, but I will do it when there is no risk at all.

The big news is that tomorrow I will get into a court to play for just 20 minutes. Jointly with my team, we will check how my shoulder responds since we are facing my recovery very carefully. If I keep this track, I will be able to feel ok when I begin with the demanding training before going back to the courts. I will send you some pictures soon so you can follow my return up close.

Besides tennis, I tell you that during my free time I am going to the football stadium to watch Ronaldinho's Barcelona y Maxi Rodriguez' Espanyol. The entertainment is good and the level is excellent, but I prefer Argentine football, especially the River football. The atmosphere we get in our country can't be achieved anywhere else, I can assure you that.

Before I forget, I want to tell you that my biggest objective is the Master Cup in Houston and, if I'm in good conditions, I want to play in it to finish this year among the best 8 tennis players. But I have to be very cautious and not to rush if the conditions are not the ones required.

I want to thank all who made what we are living through the academy opening possible. I consider this the beginning of a path that will give us great satisfaction and will allow us to make a contribution in the upbringing of better people through sports values, especially in a moment as difficult as the one we are living in.

Send you a big hug.

Guille

He means in Argentina ja. Conditions there are pretty bad. Alot of poverty and kidnappings and all that stuff like that :sad:

By the way, he's got some catching up to do with all the damn pics he PROMISED to send :fiery: Like after Monte Carlo? He had the ab injury so he was on vacation and he promised to send pics. He's supposed to send pics of his honeymoon too (though I wouldn't doubt he changed his mind :rolleyes: ). Andele Guille! Send us some pics alreay! For cryin' out loud!

I trust in my father very much because I am where I am thanks to him. He loves tennis as much as I do, and he will be working with a team of tennis instructors that share our own philosophy.

I like this quote ja. Reminds me of my dad and bro and how they have this great theory about music :yeah:

I tried once and I got awful cramps in my whole right arm for a week:( , but there were a lot of children on the court ( it was in the garden of some of my parents friends who own a tennis court) and we had a lot of fun. My arm seemed so heavy after, but at the end I managed to hit the ball almost every time :lol: :lol: :lol: Courts are much bigger in real life that what it seems on TV :eek:

Yeah you're right :lol: I love that sore-arm feeling :haha: I'm an idiot. But dude it is so fun but I can't beat my bro (Stone) :( He's much better than I am for a sucky player. Scoville can definitely can kick his ass though :haha: But um, Stone has a cool serve. It doesn't bounce when it lands inside the service court so, every return of serve MUST be a groundstroke :fiery: It's crazy. But we're :topic: so VAMOS GUILLE!
