Strange choice of tournament considering there's three clay court events next week?

Is this a serious comeback? Any news on his plans, etc.?

its hard to say what would be a 'strange choice' for guille at this point in his career ;) He has won THREE matches since 2006. he has not exactly had great results on clay, he probably wants a clean slate. the last time he did well enough to make the finals of an event, it was hard court.

hard court will give him an even bounce and won't require AS much confidence in long rallies, the way clay does with long grueling points. he will be encouraged to try to end the point a little earlier. this could spark the aggression in his game; he cant afford to come back a 'purely defensive' player, as he had begun to be in the 'comeback' of 2006.

then if he gains the confidence and comfort level during real match play, he'll be ready to draw on this experience back onto clay. remember, he has played only TWENTY matches since JULY 2006... now in 2009... he is as cold as you can be coming into tournament play; zero-tournament toughness. hard court is a good idea.

i agree with these points and would also add the psychological perspective: he plays only the fourth biggest challenger in this week, it's not his favourite surface and it's far away from argentina. this means, less media attention and less pressure for him.

let's hope the best. btw, if there's something like live-scores or even live-stream for this, please let me know.

:( Levy is quite tough opposition for a 1st match though and he just played a really good DC tie, any information on how Guille played today?

Bah he's been out for a long time, we can't really expect him to come back and produce great results straight away. Even sporting GOAT Tiger Woods hasn't been able to do that.

It's just nice to see him back, and hopefully he can increase his level and confidence the more he plays.

Anyone know how many double faults there were? :unsure:

Well, that's good news after all....
I prefer a loss with 1 DF than a win with 20.
