Faltará el as de espadas

Nalbandian, lesionado, faltará en el equipo de Argentina que debutará en la Copa Davis en Austria; jugarán Acasuso, Cañas, Del Potro y Prieto

BUENOS AIRES -- Finalmente, se confirmó que David Nalbandian, el mejor jugador argentino, no estará en el equipo que debutará en la Copa Davis en Austria, por la primera rueda del Grupo Mundial, del 9 al 11 de febrero próximos, en Linz.

Así, con la ausencia de Nalbandian, Nº 8 del mundo y líder del cuarteto que en el 2006 llegó a la final en Rusia, se sufrirá una baja de muchísima importancia. El campeón del Masters 2005 sufre una lesión en la rodilla izquierda.

Alberto Mancini decidió, por lo tanto, convocar a José Acasuso, Guillermo Cañas, al joven Juan Martín del Potro -hará su debut- y al doblista Sebastián Prieto, quien habitualmente juega en compañía de Acasuso en el circuito de la ATP.

El Consejo Directivo de la Asociación Argentina de Tenis aprobó la formación dada a conocer por Mancini y el plantel arribará a Austria el fin de semana anterior a la fecha de la serie.

El choque en Linz se disputará sobre una rápida carpeta sintética y los mejores locales son Stefan Koubek (63º del mundo, más experimentado) y Jurgen Melzer (32º).

Cañas es el más "veterano" del nuevo cuarteto argentino, fue top-ten y retornó al circuito en septiembre, tras una sanción de 15 meses por dóping. La actual posición de Cañas en el ránking mundial es 105º.

El mejor ubicado actualmente de los cuatro es Acasuso, clave en la temporada pasada en la Copa Davis, ya que figura 28º, mientras que Del Potro, de apenas 18 años y semifinalista hace tres semanas en Adelaida, se ubica 73º.

En dobles, Prieto es el Nº 31 del mundo y será una pieza importante para acompañar seguramente a Acasuso o bien a Cañas, quienes se adaptan bien a la veloz superficie que se usará en Austria.

El ganador del partido Austria-Argentina enfrentará en los cuartos de final, en abril, al que se imponga en el duelo entre Bielorrusia y Suecia, en Minsk, también en una carpeta sintética.

El capitán argentino tiene confianza para ganarle a Austria

http://aycu11.webshots.com/image/11210/2004152100281415164_rs.jpg

El capitán del equipo argentino de Copa Davis, Alberto Mancini, ratificó su confianza en el cuarteto de tenistas que enfrentarán a Austria como visitante, por la primera ronda del grupo Mundial, a pesar de sufrir las bajas de David Nalbandian y Agustín Calleri.

"Hay que empezar esta nueva etapa después de haber llegado a la final y se te viene muy encima muy rápido. Más allá de que no estén David y Agustín, encaramos esta eliminatoria con un equipomuy competitivo y confío plenamente en ellos", explicó durante la conferencia de prensa en el Parque Roca, de esta capital.

En los papeles, esta serie no representaría una dificultad para un combinado argentino con Nalbandian y Calleri, quienes fueron piezas fundamentales y compañeros de doble en el certamen del añopasado.

Para Mancini, Austria "es un equipo muy parejo, ya que en todos sus puntos tienen jugadores como (Jurgen) Melzer y (Stefan) Koubek, que en ese tipo de superficies son peligrosos y vienen teniendo buenos resultados".

"También cuentan con un doble bueno y bien conformados. Es peligroso y difícil, pero el equipo que tenemos tiene con qué ganarle y avanzar", agregó.

Dentro de tantas malas noticias, Mancini resaltó la posibilidad de volver a tener entre sus posibilidades de elección a Guillermo Cañas, que regresó al circuito luego de la suspensión por doping y mostró un gran rendimiento.

"Pasó la clasificación esta semana en Zagreb, perdió un partido ajustado con (Fabrice) Santoro, un jugador difícil. Tuvo un desempeño bastante bueno y es positivo que haya pasado la clasificación y que se haya medido con el francés", sostuvo "Luli".

Sobre la conformación del equipo, Mancini prefirió esperar a cómo se adapten los jugadores a la carpeta del estadio de la ciudad austríaca de Linz.

"Que jueguen (José) Acasuso y (Sebastián) Prieto es una variante, una posibilidad, pero no lo puedo contestar hoy, prefiero esperar", indicó.

Por último, dio su opinión sobre Guido Pella, una de las promesas del tenis nacional, que estará como sparring en Austria, gracias a sus buenas actuaciones y a su condición de zurdo, ya que tres de los cuatro contrincantes tienen características similares.

"Tener a un jugador zurdo era importante, nos pareció que podía ser esa persona. No hay muchos zurdos en Argentina, es una muy buena opción, es un chico que esta subiendo y tiene una buena performance en su categoría", concluyó.


Its very hard and long to translate... The title says than the Argentinian captain believe in his team to beat Austria...but of course it will be hard....
In the final talks about Guido Pella, U16 N1 at European and COSAT rankings.... He is left and will be one of the ARG team sparrings, it is considering importantt because the official players will play against 3 lefts: Jurgen Melzer, Stefan Koubek and the doubles player Julian Knowle....

Peya not playing????? :eek: He was Zagreb semifinalist this week....losing to Baghdatis..... and Marach doesnt play good in not-clay surfaces......

La ilusión hizo pie en Austria

El equipo argentino de la Copa Davis arribó esta mañana a Linz, donde disputará el próximo fin de semana uno de los encuentros de la primera rueda del Grupo Mundial

http://www.lanacion.com.ar/anexos/imagen/07/625736.JPG

LINZ, Austria.- El equipo argentino de la Copa Davis llegó hoy por la mañana a Linz, donde se enfrentará el próximo fin de semana con Austria, en uno de los encuentros de la primera rueda del Grupo Mundial.

Con el capitán Alberto Mancini como líder, el plantel de nuestro país, integrado por José Acasuso, Juan Martín del Potro y el doblista Sebastián Prieto, viajó ayer en un vuelo de Lufthansa, y tras una escala en Francfort, arribó a Linz alrededor de las 10 de nuestro país.

Allí se sumó a la delegación Guillermo Cañas, que viene de participar en el torneo de Zagreb, su primer certamen de ATP desde su regreso al circuito. Junto con los jugadores y el cuerpo técnico también viajó el juvenil Guido Pella, de 16 años y zurdo, al igual que tres de los cuatro jugadores del conjunto local.

Willy Cañas, advirtió a su llegada que la superficie elegida por Austria "es extremadamente rápida". El tenista de Tapiales participó en un evento benéfico en la "Linzer Intersport- Arena" que le permitió probar la superficie "opticourt".

Con relación al rival, Luli Mancini dijo: "Es un equipo muy parejo. Tanto (Jurgen) Melzer como (Stefan) Koubek rinden bien en este tipo de superficies y son peligrosos. Además vienen consiguiendo buenos resultados".

"También cuentan con un doble bueno y bien conformado. Es peligroso y difícil, pero el equipo que tenemos tiene con qué ganarle y avanzar", agregó el capitán del equipo.

La serie. El choque comenzará el viernes próximo en el Intersport Arena, un estadio techado con capacidad para 5000 espectadores, y sobre carpeta. En las tres jornadas, los encuentros comenzarán a las 10 de la Argentina. Para esta serie, el capitán Gilbert Schaller -reemplazante de Thomas Muster- nominó a Jürgen Melzer, Stefan Koubek, Oliver Marach y el doblista Julian Knowle.

El próximo rival. El ganador de esta serie, además de asegurarse la permanencia en el Grupo Mundial, jugará del 6 al 8 de abril próximo, en los cuartos de final, con el ganador del cruce que Belarús y Suecia sostendrán en Minsk.

Argentinian Davis Cup team arrived this morning at Linz, Austria...

Alexander Peya completa el equipo austríaco de la Copa Davis

Peya playing in Zagreb Open 2007

VIENA -- El capitán del equipo de Copa Davis de Austria, Gilbert Schaller, seleccionó para enfrentarse a Argentina el próximo fin de semana en Linz a Alexander Peya, que completará el equipo con Jürgen Melzer, Stefan Koubek y Julian Knowle.

La elección la hizo el capitán este fin de semana al valorar la buena forma de Peya, que alcanzó recientemente la semifinal en el torneo de Zagreb, donde cayó frente al chipriota Marcos Baghdatis, informó hoy la radio pública ORF.

Peya, elegido en lugar de Oliver Marach, será el único diestro del cuarteto, una circunstancia de la que esperan sacar partido los austríacos, que se enfrentan en Linz a Argentina en la ronda inicial del torneo.

"He repensado todo de nuevo y debido a los buenos resultados de Peya me he decidido por él", dijo Schaller, que cree que el tenista tiene una gran confianza en sus posibilidades.

Las esperanzas austríacas están depositadas en Melzer, el mejor jugador del país y número 30 del ránking ATP, y en Stefan Koubek, situado en el puesto 58.

El capitán austríaco considera que los argentinos, sin la presencia de David Nalbandian, pierden potencial. "Antes del sorteo, para mí los argentinos eran claros favoritos. Ahora valoraría nuestras posibilidades en un 50:50", aseguró Schaller.

Alexander Peya is the new austrian team player, replacing Oliver Marach... Because of his results in Zagreb (Singles Semifinals) last week, the captain Gilbert Schaller decided for him. Schallers says that without Nalbandian the new possibilities to win are 50/50.........
