Re: Alejandro FALLA
He lost in the 3rd round of the Australian Open to Kohlschreiber in straight-sets, but overall the start of the season was very good for Alejandro. He made the QF of Auckland the week before the AO, defeating Young and Starace before losing a tough 3-set match to Ferrer in the QF. He defeated Fognini in the first round of Australia before his signature victory over Fish in the second round, his third career top 10 victory.
After Australia, Alejandro suffered three straight opening-round defeats in Memphis, Delray Beach and Indian Wells before beating Istomin in Miami after he retired. In the second round he lost to Murray in straights, and this week is playing the Barranquilla challenger, a home-country event in Colombia. He defeated Farah 6-1 7-6 in the first round and won 6-3 2-6 6-4 over Decoud in R2. He has had a lot of positive energy in his matches and motivation to win in front of the fans who are supporting him in the crowd. In the quarterfinals he plays Marrai, so he has a good opportunity to continuing progressing in the event. GL in the quarters, Ale!
