*Bump* He had to retire in the first round of his Tunis defence due to 'general exhaustion'.

Ruben is into the QF of Pereira, having defeated Decoud and Beretta in comfortable straight set wins. With these wins Ruben's ranking is up to #104, so he should without any doubt make the French Open direct entry!

Ruben plays Farah in the QF of Pereira. Will be a tough match playing a Colombian in their home-country event but hopefully Ruben can extend his 7 match winning streak to 8!

In the doubles, Ruben lost with Decoud 4-6 2-6 Friday in the SF against Monroe/Stadler. All in all, it was an amazing week for him, at 34 years old and still continuing to win at this level is inspiring.

Next week in Pereira he plays his doubles partner in Mexico and friend Decoud in R1. He has great chances for at least a QF and hopefully he can manage this, as he is a couple wins away from essentially sealing a place in the French Open MD. GL to Ruben in Colombia, hopefully he rides this hot streak into Pereira!

Ruben won the singles title in San Luis Potosi!! In the SF he defeated Velotti 6-2 5-7 6-4 in over 3 hours. He was up 6-2 5-2, so he really should have won easier. But he found a way to hang in mentally and win the match, outlasting the Argentine who was cramping at the end.

In the finals, Ruben defeated Lorenzi 3-6 6-3 6-4 in 2 hours and 42 minutes to take the title! He played his best tennis of the week after falling behind 1-5 in the first set. Such an amazing performance from Ruben with over 8 hours spent on court the past three days of competition! After he won he put the racquet and his hat to the ground, looked up to the skies and put his hands to his head in relief He fought so hard for this title and really saved his best for last.

With this title, Ruben will be ranked #106 in the provisional rankings on Monday. He's getting close to sealing his participation at the French Open and with a couple of wins this upcoming week in the Pereira challenger in Colombia, it would be secure. Who would have thought when he was losing challenger R1s this time last year that Ruben would have a career resurgence once again? He's a fighter and has earned everything he's done in tennis throughout the years

Ruben is also in the doubles SF with Decoud defeating Borvanov/Zivkovic 6-3 4-6 10-6 in R2. They play Monroe/Stadler for a spot in the finals. GL to Ruben and Sebastian, double titles in Mexico would be awesome!

Ruben won 6-2 4-6 6-1 over Clezar. He played better than he did in his last match, which is what is most important. He plays Velotti in the SF. Velotti is coming off a nearly three hour match so Ruben should be able to take advantage and win. Hopefully he can grab a spot in the finals!

6-2 3-6 6-2 victory over Martin in the second round. He played his best at the start and end of the match, hopefully he uses the positive momentum from the end and transfers that to his QF match.

Ruben plays Clezar tomorrow in the QF. Hopefully he can make it through to his first SF of the season!

Ruben defeated the qualifier Echazu 6-1 6-0.

He plays another qualifier, Andrej Martin, as the fourth match on the center court Wednesday. Great opportunity for another quick victory for Ruben, and hopefully he takes advantage.

Ruben plays a qualifier in the first round of San Luis Potosi.

It's a very winnable tournament so hopefully Ruben can get the job done and take the title!

Ruben and Zeballos lost 8-10 in the final set tiebreaker in the doubles final in Barranquilla to Monroe/Sykut. So his tournament in Colombia is over. Next stop: San Luis Potosi.

Re: ^*the Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo Picture & Cheering Thread*^

Ruben defeated the qualifier Stadler 6-2 6-4 in the first round but lost in R2 to Alund 3-6 2-6. His service numbers were very poor in both matches, so hopefully he turns that around as he gains his rhythm back from not having played matches in a while.

He is in the doubles SF with Zeballos as the #1 seeds and they will be playing Monroe/Sykut for a place in the finals. Hopefully he wins the doubles and it gives him confidence in singles in future events.
