Patagonia Open:

Juan lost his match against Juan Mónaco 7-6(2) 6-4. That's what he said before the match:
"La verdad es que me gusta mucho venir a Neuquén y además la paso muy bien acá. Y además los últimos dos torneos los gané y ahora voy por el tercero".
"The true is that I like to come to Neuquén and also I feel so good here. Also, I won the last two tournaments and now I'm going fot the third one".

About who wants to see in the final:
"Es lo mismo, acá todos tenemos un nivel bastante parejo, y si bien el año pasado le gané a Zabaleta, en esta oportunidad, todos queremos ganar, y con la presencia de Willy Cañas, la cosa es más difícil".
"It's the same, we all have an equal level, and although I won to Zabaleta last year, everybody wants to win, and with the appearance of Willy Cañas, the things are more difficult".

Chela is currently playing an exhibition tournament in Brazil, together with Puerta, Guga and Ricardo Mello. He just entered it today after Nicolas Kiefer retired from the tournament due to a stomachic virus. He lost his first match to Puerta 6-3 6-4 and will now play against Mello tomorrow. There's a thread about this on the exhibitions forum.

Bye. :wavey:

Juan played today against Chucho Acasuso and he won 7-5 3-6 7-5!!! :bigclap: The match was quite long, like two hours and a half or so. I'm happy because Juan made some great shots and he seems very happy everytime he plays in Buenos Aires! :kiss: Good luck Juan! :bounce:
