Didn't see a thread for him so thought of creating one. Hopefully there are some fans out there for this young talented argentinian

He plays Vicente today in Barcelona

Good man gambler and I am still surprised by your fandom of "Chucho" Acasuso. It's hard because Vicente and Chucho are not in the best of form and why couldn't they draw Srichaphan.

i'm trying to confirm whether he is fully fit, his past results really are uncharacteristic, losing to players on clay that he really should be beating

it's probably just a confidence thing, and hopefully stringing some wins together will help him regain his touch

That Gilles Simon loss is one that still sits very poorly with me. He seems to struggle at this time of year, though he has been injured a lot at this time.

He is a very relaxed and a cool guy, and I want to see him further up the rankings.

LOL thanks for that pic :wavey:

yeah pleasing to see he had a solid day yesterday, two relatively comfortable wins from what I saw following the scoreboard, from memory he faced a few bp\'s in teh first set against almagro but otherwise it was smooth sailing.

Even more pleasing given his biggest tournament of the year is next week so this should hopefully help his confidence as well.

Hope he can finsih the job this week in style by taking out Davydenko and then winning the title, which i believe he has a massive chance of doing.

good luck chucho against davydenko :rocker2:

La explosión
El misionero José Acasuso, que conoce como nadie en el circuito la tierra roja, logró ayer una de las victorias más importantes de su carrera y alcanzó por primera vez la tercera vuelta en el Abierto de Francia, segundo Grand Slam del año: venció al norteamericano Andy Roddick, N° 3 del mundo, por 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 y 8-6, en 3 horas y 21 minutos

PARIS.– Hay postales que se proyectan, pero que tardan mucho en concretarse. Son esos instantes de gloria, que se sueñan y que a veces en toda una carrera no pueden consumarse. Algo de eso sintió José Acasuso, en ese rato en el que se acostó sobre el polvo de ladrillo del court Suzanne Lenglen, de cara al cielo. Después de 3h21, el misionero, de 22 años, que conoce la tierra roja como nadie en el mundo del tenis, había consumado la mejor victoria de su carrera. Andy Roddick, el poderoso sacador norteamericano, sufría una nueva frustración al tiempo que Chucho, el del andar cansino y el tranco aletargado, que en sus tiempos de juniors creció detrás de Guillermo Coria y de David Nalbandian se daba el gusto de ser la estrella de la tarde parisiense.

El argentino llegó a estar dos sets abajo, 4-4 y break-point y, posteriormente, en desventaja por 1-3 en el quinto set. Roddick, el ex N° 1 del mundo, el campeón del US Open 2003, el actual N° 5 de la Carrera de los Campeones, 3° en el Ranking de Acceso y segundo cabeza de serie en el abierto francés, estuvo cerca de la victoria. Era casi un hecho, si el norteamericano nunca suele perdonar. Pero no sabía, en medio del pegajoso calor y la humedad, que enfrente tenía a alguien que sabe jugar como pocos con ese clima. Y así, Acasuso dio vuelta la historia y con un 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 y 8-6 logró su mejor actuación en un torneo de Grand Slam, pues por primera vez tendrá la oportunidad de pelear por un lugar en los octavos de final en una prueba de estas características, que dicho sea de paso, después de cuatro días ya no cuenta con jugadores de los Estados Unidos, Australia y Gran Bretaña, los países que organizan los otros tres torneos más importantes del circuito.

“Me siento cansado, pero feliz. Cuando logré quebrarle en el tercer set, me di cuenta que ganarle no era imposible. Después, cuando recuperé el break en el quinto supe que la victoria estaba cerca. Pensar que venía desganado y decidí volver a Buenos Aires a fines de abril porque no conseguía resultados. Hoy puedo decir que esos duros días de entrenamiento sirvieron para darme confianza y lograr la mejor victoria de mi carrera”, contaba, sin levantar la voz, sin euforias, con suma tranquilidad.

Nunca antes había disfrutado algo así. Si bien llevaba en sus alforjas dos títulos en el circuito (Sopot 2002 y Bucarest 2004), Acasuso cargaba con la cuenta pendiente de conseguir una explosión de este tipo. Ante más de 10.000 personas que conocían al Bombardero de Nebraska y poco sabían del misionero que machacó durante toda la tarde con el revés paralelo y los passings cruzados. Para construir una victoria épica, para sacar toda la fuerza que tenía dentro y para demostrarse de una vez que es capaz de estabilizarse y tener un rendimiento contundente. Y lograr su segunda victoria en cinco sets sobre tres partidos que disputó en toda su carrera con esa cantidad de parciales. Para dar vuelta, al igual que en la primera rueda de Australia 2002 un partido en el que lo tenía en desventaja por 0-2.

Acasuso, el más silencioso de la Legión, 60° en la Carrera y 69° en el Ranking del Acceso, fue el mismo que sorprendió en el ATP de Buenos Aires, en 2001, al convertirse en finalista tras superar la etapa clasificatoria. En esos tiempos de pelo largo, tipo rasta, el hoy pupilo de Daniel Orsanic, cayó ante Gustavo Kuerten, por entonces N° 1 del mundo.

Hincha fanático de Racing, el futuro rival del italiano Filippo Volandri tomó por primera vez una raqueta a los dos años, en Iporá, en el club que Juan Rubén, su abuelo y primer profesor, tenía en Posadas. Abrazó el deporte como pocos y un poco más grande se inclinó por el básquetbol hasta los 12 años, cuando el tenis se convirtió en su deporte para siempre.

Fue campeón sudamericano juvenil en 1996 y también recibió premios por su gran conducta deportiva, esa que provocó que el propio Roddick –que una vez más mostró sus cualidades de caballero– lo fuera a buscar del otro lado de la red para felicitarlo por el gran trabajo que había realizado. Mientras el noble Chucho se acordaba de su entrenador, su preparador físico, su psicólogo y su familia. Su gente, la que lo apoyó siempre. Los que aparecieron como en un flash después de ese drive que selló la victoria y dio vida a esa postal que grabará para siempre. Y que ocurrió nada menos que en Roland Garros. Justo sobre la tierra roja que Acasuso tanto caminó y conoce como pocos.

El prestigio de Ginóbili
La admiración por el jugador de basquetbol argentino Emanuel Ginóbili llegó hasta Roland Garros gracias a su colega francés Boris Diaw, de Atlanta Hawks, que, de paso en el Bois de Boulogne, dijo: "Manu es increíble, talentoso y luchador. No hay muchos como él, por eso es uno de mis preferidos".

hmmm, ok well ill make a fool of myself here, my spanish is a little rusty but paraphrasing basically it says the following:

Yesterday Acasuso achieved on of his most important victories in his career and reached the third round of the French Open for the first time in his career by beating world number 3 Andy Roddick 3-6 4-6 6-4 6-3 8-6 in 3 hours and 21 minutes. This was a moment that someone can dream of in his career. This was something that Jose Acasuso must have felt as he lay on the red clay and faced skyward on the Suzanne Lenglen court. After 3 hours and 21 min the 22 year old let the world know he had completed one of his best victories in his career.

It goes on to say that Roddick was frustrated towards the end of the match and that Acauso is in a line of many young Argentinan players behind Nalbandian and Coria.

But of course I would appreciate it as well if someone could translate fully as well :)

Today Chucho comes up Volandri, who obviously will be his stiffest opposition so far.

H2h chucho leads 2-1 with both victories coming last year but it is fair to say that Pipo has improved significantly since last year.

good luck chucho, he can definitely do it :rocker2:

The explosion
The misionero José Acasuso that knows as nobody the red clay in the atp, achieved yesterday one of the most important victories in his career and reached the third round for the first time in the Open of France, second Grand Slam of the year:He Defetead the North American Andy Roddick, N° 3 of the world, for 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 and 8-6, in 3 hours and 21 minutes

PARIS.–there are postcards that are projected, but that they take a lot in being summed up. They are those instants of glory that one dreams and that sometimes in an entire career they cannot be consummated. Something of that felt José Acasuso, in that while in the one that layed down on the clay of the court Suzanne Lenglen, face to the sky. After 3h21, the misionero, 22 years old, that knows the red clay as nobody in the world of the tennis, had consummated the best victory in his career. Andy Roddick, the powerful American server suffered a new frustration at the time that chucho, the one of walking weary and the drowsy stride that grew behind Guillermo Coria and David Nalbandian in his junior times got the pleasure of being the star of the Parisian afternoon.

The Argentinean ended up two sets being down 4-4 and break-point and, later on, in disadvantage for 1-3 in the fifth set. Roddick, the former N° 1 of the world, the champion of the US Open 2003, the current N° 5 of the Champions Race, 3° in the Entry Ranking and second seed in the French Open, he was near the victory. It was almost a fact, if the American usually forgives never. But he didn't know, amid the sticky heat and the humidity that it faces he had somebody that knows how to play as few with that weather. And this way, Acasuso gave turn the history and with a 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 and 8-6 achieved his best performance in Grand Slam's tournament, because for the first time he will have the opportunity to fight for a place in the eighth of final in a test of these characteristics that said it is in passing, after four days no longer bill with players from the United States, Australia and Great Britain, the countries that organize the other three more important tournaments of the ATP tour.

“I feel tired, but happy. When I was able to break him in the third Set, I realized that to win him was not impossible. Then, when I recovered the break in the fifth set I knew that the victory was close. To think that he came without appetite and I decided to return to Buenos Aires at the end of April because it didn't get results. Today I can say that those hard days of training they were good to give me trust and to achieve the best victory in my career”, He counted, without lifting the voice, without euphorias, with supreme tranquility.

He had never before enjoyed something like that. Although it took in their saddlebags two titles in the Atp (Sopot 2002 and Bucarest 2004), Acasuso loaded with the pending bill of getting an explosion of this type. Before more than 10.000 people that knew the Bombardier from Nebraska and little knew about the misionero who mashed during the whole afternoon with the dtl backhand and the crosscourt passing shots. To build an epic victory, to take out all the force that he had inside and to be demonstrated once and for all that it is able to be stabilized and to have an overwhelming yield. And to achieve their second victory in five sets in three matches that he disputed in all their career with that quantity of sets. To give turn, the same as in the first round of Australia 2002 a match in which had it in disadvantage for 0-2.

Acasuso, the most silent in the Legion, 60° in the Champion Race and 69° in the Entry Ranking was the same one that surprised in the ATP of Buenos Aires, in 2001, when becoming finalist after overcoming the qualy. In those times of long hair, type rasta ?, the today pupil of Daniel Orsanic,lost to Gustavo Kuerten, for then N° 1 of the world.

fan of Racing Club (a football/soccer team), the future rival of the Italian Filippo Volandri took a racket for the first time at two years old, in Iporá, in the club that Juan Rubén, his grandfather and first professor, had in Inns. He hugged the sport like few and a little bigger he resolved for the basketball until the 12 years, when the tennis became his sport forever.

He was a junior South American champion in 1996 and he also received prizes for their great sport behavior - sportsmanship, that that caused that the own Roddick – that once again showed his gentleman qualities– will look for it of the other side of the net to congratulate him for the great work that he had carried out. While the noble Noble Chucho remembered his trainer, his physical coach, his psychologist and his family. his people, the one that always supported him. Those that appeared like in a flash after that forehand winner that sealed the victory and he gave life to that postcard that will record forever. And that it happened anything less than in Roland Garros. Fair on the red clay that Acasuso so much walked and he knows as few.

Acasuso se tiene fe para Wimbledon


Ayer, José Acasuso viajó rumbo a Londres, en donde a partir del próximo lunes, participará en Wimbledon (20.000.000 de dólares en premios), el tercer Grand Slam de la temporada. “Quiero seguir mejorando mi juego”, dijo el vencedor de Andy Roddick.



(1'49")



.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ......





A los 22 años de edad, el misionero José Acasuso viene de cumplir su mejor actuación en Roland Garros, tras haber alcanzado los octavos de final en donde cayó con Mariano Puerta, finalista del Abierto Francés, después de eliminar al estadounidense Andy Roddick, tercer jugador del mundo.

Chucho (47° en el ranking mundial) afrontará su debut en Londres ante el checo Tomas Zib (61°). “Lo que sucedió en París fue muy bueno para mí, porque significó la primera vez que llego a la segunda semana de un Grand Slam. Además, me sirvió para darme cuenta que puedo jugar partidos largos y levantarlos, aún con jugadores que tienen un ranking mucho mejor que el mío, como sucedió ante Roddick”, dijo.

Acasuso también se dio un tiempo para el balance sobre los sucedido en el primer semestre del año y se mostró conforme con su rendimiento. “En líneas generales, fue bueno. Llegué hasta los cuartos en Viña del Mar y las semifinales en Buenos Aires y Saint Polten. Además, le gané a Safin, en Barcelona. Aunque tenía planeado jugar en Roma y Hamburgo, decidí volver a la Argentina, durante dos semanas, para entrenarme mejor. Y regresé al circuito en Saint Polten con un mejor nivel de juego”.

“Después de Wimbledon, jugaré lo que resta de la temporada en canchas lentas e iré hasta Sopot para defender la final del año pasado y Bucarest en donde gané el torneo, en 2004. En la segunda parte del año quiero seguir mejorando mi juego, conseguir un poco más de regularidad y jugar sin lesiones, porque hace tiempo que no puedo hacerlo durante un año entero”, sentenció.

A poco menos de un mes de que la Argentina juegue su pasaje a las semifinales de la Copa Davis, ante Australia, el misionero no olvidó su ilusión de jugar. Y le dio pie a su sueño. “En la Davis todo puede cambiar de un día para el otro. O sea, si uno gana un torneo de los grandes o se mantiene en buen nivel, durante un par de semanas, puede estar en el equipo. Aparte, la realidad dice que el circuito está muy difícil y hay muchos contratiempos. Entonces, hay jugadores que se pueden lesionar cuando hay una serie y se puede generar un hueco. De todas formas, no me desespero, porque sé que tengo tiempo para jugarla. Hoy hay un muy buen equipo, con muchos jugadores y soy consciente que hay varios que están delante de mí. En Roland Garros hablé con Mancini, como lo hicieron los demás jugadores. Y eso es muy bueno, porque te hace sentir parte del equipo, aunque uno no juegue”, afirmó.

Haaaaa!!!!! Orsaaaa!!!!!!! But today Chucho was playing so crappy this doubles match... that Orsa told him: "Whatever I manage to serve on the second side of the net you have to fuck up". I wish you could see Daniel's service. Once he hit his own head with his 1st serve. He practised it during the breaks of the games. He's definitely the nicest person participating in this tournament. And I loved when he was debating about going out in the evening with chair umpire Manu Messina (actually sitting on his chair) on Acasuso's match. Then Chucho started losing (we thought because he doesn't like being locked in the hotel room while Orsa goes out to the disco with us and dances until... the dawn) but he finally won. Chucho also got a warining from Manu because Vanek said it's scandalous to not to give him one through the whole match. Jose threw his racquet time after time (once I said: "Replay!", he threw it once again and then I said "thanks"), broke one, ohh simply behaved like a child in the sand! Today against Chadaj he didn't show anything special. I'll be cheering him like crazy in his next match, he's my favourite since I don't like my ex-friend and ex-starlet Juan Mónaco (who lost to cheri Monfils anyway) after what he did with 2 girls (at once) and a drink at the disco straight on my eyes (maybe even it was on purpose, I don't know and I am not curious).

Chucho doesn't go to the disco. That's why we think he can really win here.... however Coria is looking smooth on court, I hope cheri Gael can play his best again (please Gael.... don't lose vs Hanescu !!!!!!!!!!) and Jarkko Nieminen won't lose too fast especially after I cheered for him with his coaches today.

That's why we all love Sopot tournament but I hate it so much this time :( Everything goes just not this way it should... :(

Chucho used to be on my black list before coming to Sopot. When he beat Roddick at RG I promised I’d throw some tomatoes on him when he arrives to Sopot. But from the moment I saw him, I started to support him. I spied him throughout the whole tournament, I don't think I missed even one training session. I really hoped that he could win in Sopot since he has a great potential. Sadly, I don't think he'll ever develop it, since he seems so lazy and acts like a 5 yo. baby at times. I still cannot forget that he ran away from me when I wanted to take a photo with him (remember: don't try to take a photo with a player who's just lost against Starace in qf), but I forgive him. I hope one day he'll achieve the results he's predisposed to.

He was in qf in Sopot two weeks ago! :) I know, I've been there! :devil:

He played quite solid match against Younes, good for him, if he had not, then i would've thought that he's really :cuckoo: by not taking his chances against that kind of players. Robredo's up next. And i think the second round is Jose's last :sad:

He beat Boredo 7-6 6-2, he tried hard to lose the 1st set, by blowing 6 set points, but he came through in the end and has a very good chance against Horna in the next round. I doubt whether there will be many photos around, hopefully yes.

Honestly, I didn’t think he'd make it, but I was just blown away seeing him going through this match quite comfortably. And my scoreboard died just before the tie break so i was like :confused: . It takes some guts to be Chucho's fan :devil:

He does have a great chance against Horna. He played him 7 times and won 5.
5 times on clay but still counts :p Kick some ass you loco hombre!

If you want to follow winners just stick to Federer and Nadal, it's easier that way. If you look at the Chucho fans around, they accept him for what he is and what he isn't and that's why the whole thing irritated me.

Its not about winners, I dont care whether they win or lose as long as they try. Gaudio :smash: I swear at times I think his mind has left his body and I know he can do so much better, but I love him, I love him so much I dont care whether he never wins anything again. I do but just seeing him makes it all better. The same can be said for Chucho I saw him play Fed in 2003 at the US Open and I've liked him ever since, dont get much coverage of him though

It's the same with Gaudio deal with it and that smash over the head icon isn't going to improve anything. If Chucho was like Hewitt or Gaudio like Muster then they'd be totally different people, but they are not. Some people can do better, but even that's not good enough, you haven't suffered long enough to be a Gaudio fan and yes it's just another episode and Acasuso is the same, he can play brilliantly or be awful.

Acasuso did manage of the greatest chokes in Montreal history. He was playing Quebecois Simon Larose and managed to throw away a match that he had no business of throwing away.

I saw Chucho's match against Gonzo at the AO this year and there was plenty of atmosphere. Then again a Chilean vs Argentinian should have that.

I know what it's like and I mentioned it earlier in my frustration thread on GM. That's the thing it takes more to follow and stick with a guy when he is down, yes the bad losses as well are just as important as the wins. Well the 2004 RG winner is an example of the above statement.

Kinda pity that he didn't break Fed to be up 5-3 in the first set, then it could've gone ANY way. Fed wasn’t at his best today, to beat him, you have to convert that kind of chances. Chucho was a lazy ass in the second after he got broken.
But he showed two top class bh down the line :eek: .

It wasn't a great match and Chucho played some very good tennis from 0-3 down to get back it to 4-5, then he couldn't do it from there. He seemed to me to have the I can't beat Roger feeling and tried not to lose badly, he had some good shots, but he wasn't serving as well as he can and got punished because of it.

Good week Chucho and back into the top 50 with that performance.

I only saw couple of rallies, but those Chucho's backhands made me go whoo-hooo :)

He has a brilliant serve - and I'm sure if he practised a lot more on hard courts and played more hard court tourneys like Coria and Nalbandian have recently - he could be just as successul as them - if not more so ;) Much as I love clay court tennis (see my signature!) - it's hard just to be a "clay court specialist" and make it as a successful Top 10 player :sad: Chucho is young and I'm sure he wants to the BEST he can be - so get out there on the hard courts Chucho :devil:

Remember that anything can't come too easy for Chucho because it would just bore him. He has already improved so much on hardcourts this year. Just compare his achievements. I believe he's on his best way to get some good results in next year and so.

I though that Hanescu would be a challenge, but who the hell is Hidalgo? Oh wait, that famous guy who had played seven (3:4) atp matches this year before coming to Romania.

Anyway, Chucho, you gotta love him, and hate him at the same time. I got used to that.
He needs to go to a tournament where there won't be any Giorgio di Palermo. Him and Orsa means partyyyyy. Now, let's get back to work Chucho!

Well Acasuso you have done it with this performance, maybe it was too much time off in between matches, chasing the ladies or looking stoned. Chucho leading a break in the 2nd set at 5-4 and don't win another game. It's not the consistency that makes me a fan.

09-15-2005, 06:40 PM
He had 2 days off before his 2nd round match, maybe Tiriac tried to use his mafioso tactics before he played Hanescu in the next round, and distracted him, but he had enough chances to do well in this match.

P.S I am joking about Tiriac.

The guy who defeated there Matka, Urbi, Vinciguerra, now Chucho and guess what, he's likely to enter Szczecin from the ALT list and he may look straight up in our eyes at the press conference !!!

He reached a semifinal in Sopot in 2003, lost after a close match to Ferrer and never repeated this result again.

Match against Vanek was one of the most amusing things I’d ever seen. You're right Nathii. I think he was just jealous over Messina. He wanted our (or mine :devil: ) attention back and that's why he began to play well at that time.

Rosie, I bet you wouldn't have needed my company at that match if you'd known that I was a Roddick fan back then. I mean, I still support Andy, but that's a different story. Anyway, after that 2rd match Jose made it to my black list and he was about to get killed in Sopot, and my hands were supposed to be the crime tool. It all changed during the draw ceremony, when I first saw him. So I'm a Chuchoholic with a short practice, but it’s the intensity that makes me a great one.

I hope Chucho will be able to play a match like that one next time, let's say against Federer or Nadal. I could sell my house then, just to be able to see it and go crazy with you :cool:

and i am his supporter since i saw him first against Squillari in Sopot 2002 :angel: when I saw that guy for the first time I was just spellbounded you know... (however we nomen omen SPELL it), comparing his style to Squillari's it had to make an impression. He was playing in that match differently to what we see nowadays in his game (at least matches of his i've seen last months)... attacking at the net a lot (!), and his forehand was simply a killer's one.


and as about 'revolutionary zeals' ... i made one for Rios. Reading about this guy in the newspapers (interviews, articles and stuff) I was all about to hate his behavior. But when I saw him in 1999 on TV after they installed me cable TV and I had posiibility to see tennis for the first time, I changed my mind 180 degrees. I didn't know anything about tennis technic and such... but it was just difficult to not to see his maestry... I even started liking his specific behaviour. Till now I consider myself as one of his biggest fans in Europe, and at the beginning I was a hater.

I'm a crazy teen myself at times - like posting for fun things on MTF. There's no need to treat everything seriously... but it's just my humble opinion.

Choupi, thanks for the pics these are appreciated for sure.

I hope the big man hasn't drunk too much of that champagne and if he serves well, he should beat Rochus.

I have more. I'll email them to you later.

Well, I have offered my help for the Champagne, you know, for their own sake, but it hasn't been accepted! ;) Chucho was in a hurry to leave the court. Just have a look at the last pic I've posted.

Chucho might have got the last flight out that night, though I wonder if they flew from Metz or Strasbourg.

Well he is safely here in Stockholm - I watched part of the doubles match this afternoon and also Chucho´s practice session with Juan Monaco tonight. Sadly I couldn´t take pictures because of the damned netting they had erected around the practice court :devil: He is fine though - and - on a sartorial note..........no blue socks in Stockholm. Bye for now :wavey:

Rosie! You lucky girl! I wish i was in Stockholm, maybe with our loud support he wouldn't have lost to Christophe Rochus in the first round :rolleyes:

Anyway, have a great time!

Well Chucho is in Madrid or off to Madrid, he might be lucky and make the main draw for this event, hope he can qualify.

Thanks for the pic Katica! If you don't manage to upload those pics, let me know, maybe you could send me them via e-mail cause i'm really willing to see some more ;)

Jose made it to the main draw in Madrid, i just hope he won't have to play somebody like Roddick in the first round, but on the other hand, even Chris Rochus was too much for him lately :( fingers crossed anyway.

Yes he is here in Madrid - I was talking to him briefly this afternoon - he seems fine. Sadly I lost my camera here in Madrid :sad: so all my Stockholm photos have been lost with it :sad: but it has been a great experience. I have to go home tomorrow night or first thing Tuesday morning (work on Wednesday :sad: ), so I don't know whether I will see him play or not here in Madrid - but Vamos Chucho anyway.

Thanks for the Chucho information and hope he can play early, so you can see him. Should be plenty of Madrid-London flights, vamos Chucho.

Thanks - well I wasn't happy as my friends on Gaston's Forum yesterday will vouch - but it was my own stupid fault - I was tired and distracted and careless and have no one but myself to blame. As I said on GG's Forum, while I was reporting the loss, I met an American girl who had lost her bag containing money, credit cards and passport and didn't speak a word of Spanish - made me realise a camera was not so important.

Chucho beat Gaudio 7-6 6-2 :woohoo:

Just hope Chucho can follow up against Stepanek, though I can see Stepanek hitting drop volleys and short balls trying to move the big man forward and frustrate him.

Sure, not happy Gaudio lost, but at least it was to someone decent and that's good by me.
