Thanks for that lau and big Orsa makes a lot of sense with these comments and that's the thing with Davis Cup it can be very stressful as the highs are so high, but the problem is the lows are very low.

Good to give him time to recover and build the base for a big 2007 season and just hope he can translate his DC form into the Slams.

José will be flying to Australia (or arriving there?) on the 8th of January.
same to me...i could see very little because i was in a home issue! but i recorded and i will watch it later to tell something about it.

One note: Chucho played totally shaved! Maybe he has finished with the habit himself admitted to play with no-shave face. Maybe in the real tournaments the habit will return. We'll see.

I wasn't too concerned with his decision not to play a lead-up tourney before AO, but it's nice to hear he's getting there with plenty of time to adjust to time, environment, etc.
yes, thanks, lau. As Anna said he needs time to adjust. And also time to recover from the stress of Davis Cup.

yes, i heard same too. A lot of times in the last interviews it was mentioned by Chucho. He was at same time stressful and happy to have played the 5 point as he did.

In Clarin it says Mancini already picked up the men for Davis first round

Mancini ya tiene el equipo en la cabeza

Nalbandian —si acepta jugar—, Acasuso, Calleri y Cañas, integrarían el equipo argentino de la Davis contra Austria.

EVALUANDO. Cañas pelotea con Chela, mientras que Mancini observa.
Anterior

El año todavía no terminó y la herida de la derrota ante Rusia en la final de la Copa Davis por 3 a 2 en la fría Moscú sigue abierta. Sin embargo, Alberto Mancini, capitán del equipo argentino, ya piensa en el fin de semana del 9 al 11 de febrero de 2007, en el que Argentina visitará a Austria en Linz, por la primera ronda de la Copa. Por eso, Luli presenció ayer un entrenamiento informal de Juan Ignacio Chela y Guillermo Cañas, para terminar de delinear a las cuatro raquetas argentinas.

Una de las canchas auxiliares del Parque Roca fue el escenario de la práctica. A partir de las once de la mañana y durante más de una hora, Cañas y Chela pelotearon entre ellos. Mancini estuvo presente durante todo el entrenamiento, observando principalmente a Cañas, ya que Chela anunció lo que Clarín ya había anticipado: que en 2007 estará concentrado únicamente en el circuito de la ATP.

"Ya estamos programando Austria, aunque Rusia siempre me vuelve a la cabeza. Creo que ahora hay que pensar para adelante. Lo que se hizo este año fue increíble, el balance es más que positivo. Eso da una pauta de que el 2007 se empieza con el claro objetivo de volver a intentar ganarla. Los jugadores siguen es tando y se demuestra que están a la altura de las circunstancias para jugar en cualquier superficie y ante cualquier rival", comentó Luli, quien ya tendría definidos a los cuatro para enfrentar a Austria: Guillermo Cañas, José Acasuso, Agustín Calleri y David Nalbandian, en caso de que el tenista argentino mejor ubicado en el ranking decida participar del encuentro, ya que su presencia es todavía una duda.

basically, the article say that Mancini is convinced about the four and he never forgot Russia's matches. He has them in mind all the times, although he is thinking obviously in Asutria. Nalbandian didn't accept to play yet. And the article nothing said about Juan Martín del Potro. But Chucho is one of the team for sure.

Default Re: Chucho News and Articles

This is old but nice...from Ole about the last exho in Cordoba. The article talks about how much the audience clapped Chucho, first when he walked into the court with an ovation and then after the match even when he lost. He already has a big place in the heart of argentinian people after his performance in Davis Cup against Russia (and before against Australia, beating Hewitt, i can add , so Chucho is already and idol here!)



TENIS : DEMOSTRACION DE AFECTO EN CORDOBA


Acasuso perdió y lo aplaudieron

Acasuso lost and the public clapped!

Marcelo Maller CORDOBA. ENVIADO ESPECIAL

El primer gran aplauso fue en Moscú. Luego, la gente que estuvo en el Luna Park también enrojeció sus manos para vivarlo. Y ayer, Córdoba se sumó al agradecimiento a José Acasuso por todo el esfuerzo desplegado en la final de la Copa Davis. El misionero fue ovacionado repetidas veces por el público que asistió al Estadio Orfeo pero, pese al continuo aliento, no pudo vencer al chileno Nicolás Massú, que lo derrotó 7-5 y 7-6 (6) y enfrentará hoy en la final del torneo, a desarrollarse en el segundo turno, al ganador del choque que al cierre de esta edición enfrentaba a David Nalbandian y Juan Mónaco.

Para Acasuso, que está en la transición entre el final de la temporada 2006 (mañana disputará uno de sus últimos partidos del año, el tercer puesto), y la pretemporada 2007, la de anoche era una buena chance de recibir los aplausos por su estupenda actuación en Rusia. Y así fue. Cuando su nombre fue anunciado, el público lo ovacionó por primera vez, y esa ovación se volvió aún más fuerte cuando entró al estadio y se detuvo a saludar en mitad de cancha.

In TyC Sports about the exho in Punta chucho won yesterday night

Acasuso se quedó con la exhibición


El misionero obtuvo el torneo en Uruguay al derrotar a Guillermo Cañas por 7-5 y 6-4. Los dos se preparan para una temporada 2007 que empieza en pocos días.


Se cerró el año para los tenistas argentinos. Con la exhibición que se desarrolló en Punta del Este quedó sellado un 2006 con algunos títulos, un top ten de la mano de David Nalbandian y la espina clava por la final perdida en la Copa Davis.

Este último torneo tuvo como ganador a José Acasuso, el mejor de la temporada por detrás de Nalbandian
, al vencer en la definición a Guillermo Cañas con parciales de 7-5 y 6-4.

El encuentro fue a cara de perro, muy parejo, con los bajones propios de la pretemporada, y Chucho se lo llevó por, como él mismo lo explicó, "haber jugado bien en los momentos claves, ahí estuvo la diferencia".

El misionero se mostró "feliz de terminar el año de esta manera" y deseó para el que viene "finalizar entre los 15, ganar un Masters Series en polvo de ladrillo y, obviamente, la Copa Davis".


The article said 2 interest things:
-Acasuso is the best argentinian tennist after Nalbandian in the end of this year, and the match with Cañas was played as a real one, both fighting.
-Chucho's words: he played better the important points (one thing he has to learn to do in every match i can say)...
He said he is happy to end the year in this way and said his goals for the year uncoming are "to end 2007 between the top 15, to win a Master Series on clay, and obviously to win Davis Cup"

Brief report of the final with Cañas.

Basically we can say Chucho's power was too much for Cañas. His service, his shots down the line and angles Cañas couldn't return. But Cañas fought a lot and could do some good things: some volleys, some return of a Chucho's smash very impressive.
A funny note: the match almost didn't start because a lot of insects were beside the lights falling down into the court! The players were waiting for a while till the assistents were cleaning up the court but the insects (we call them "cascarudos") were still falling down. Finally they start the play. At the end Chucho's speak was very sweet. He said he was happy to see Cañas back on courts after his difficult period and playing so good, happy also because Argentina has a very important player back for Davis Cup. He said he enjoyed the cup in Punta del Este, and hope this kind of exho will motivate more kids to start to play more tennis.

In the interview TYC Sport did with him, Chucho said his best tennis moment during 2006 was his SF in Master Series Hamburg, so one of his goals is to win a Master Series on clay. And the as emotional moments he remarked the ties of Davis Cup against Australia in Buenos Aires, and against Russia in the Finals. He wants to finish between the top 15 during 2007, win a MS on clay and to win DaVis Cup. "We want revenge" he say with his sweet smile. He also said he is now fully focused on Australian Open.

He was wearing in all white, and completely shaved, showing his baby face! He looked as a gentleman

Thanks Maria for the recap of the match and all the articles, very informative! I only wish I could have watched it myself. Even though it was just an exhibition match I love to watch Chucho play, regardless if it counts towards something or not.

you are welcome!

there is another thing i forgot to report: Bonadeo, the guy of TyC Sport, was talking during the match with Martin Jaite, the Buenos Aires Copa Telmex organizer. He said Chucho is not confirmed for Buenos Aires but he has the hope he will be there, and for the conversation he had recently with Chucho, he thinks he will accept to play. The list of players will be closed on 8 Jennuary, the day Chucho leaves to Australia, i hope too Chucho will be in Buenos Aires, this is my chance to see him play in a real tournament. His first big acheivement was there, arriving to the Finals with Guga in 2001 when he was 18. He played great tennis there and i am his fans since that tournament.

I don't know where to put this but like it includes an old interview when he was 17 and Chucho's words i will put here.

It is about the meaning of Chucho's name. I read in other forums that people ask about that...have you talked already on this topic? It is a very argentinian thing. I don't know if Spanish people use thar word for the same meaning.

well i explained the story on my site on Chucho's thread.

As far as I know he is called Chucho because when he was a little kid that´s how he pronounced his surname, Acachucho.
And I´m sure there were posts about in this forum.

Thanks, lau. Yes, i think these 2 things are true from what i heard from himself in that old interview. Maybe people started to call him Chucho because he pronounced Acachucho when he was almost a baby, and maybe people after that use the Chucho to make laugh at him because of his fears. He said it clearly on the interview but i will continue my research on the topic.
