El año arranca mal para Massú

Una lesión en el tobillo derecho dejó al viñamarino fuera del ATP de Doha y sólo jugará Auckland (donde debe disputar la clasificación) como preparación para el Abierto de Australia.

Nicolás Massú estaba entusiasmado. Luego de batallar durante la mayor parte de 2008 en challengers, su actual ranking (77º del mundo) le permite volver a reinsertarse en el circuito principal en la próxima temporada.

El regreso estaba agendado en el ATP de Doha (Qatar), desde el 5 de enero, y el viñamarino lo adelantaba así hace algunos días: "Es una gran oportunidad de hacer algo importante. Hace mucho tiempo que no juego un torneo de un millón de dólares (N. de la R.: un millón 110 mil 250, exactamente), y si llego, por ejemplo, a cuartos de final, sería muy bueno para mí. Salvo que me toque (Rafael) Nadal o (Roger) Federer en primera ronda, siento que puedo jugar muy bien, porque contra cualquier otro que me toque me siento en condiciones de ganar".

Pero no será posible. Una lesión en el tobillo derecho obligó a desistir del viaje al Golfo Pérsico al ex campeón olímpico. "Hoy (ayer) se tomó la decisión. Nicolás está entrenando, pero al apoyar el pie para servir le molesta mucho. Es un viaje muy largo hasta Qatar, y de ahí otro muy largo hasta Auckland como para arriesgarse sin estar en plena forma física", explicó Manuel Massú.

De cualquier forma, la lesión no complicará demasiado los planes del viñamarino, quien viajará a Oceanía el 6 de enero para disputar la clasificación de Auckland, único torneo previo al Abierto de Australia para él. En Nueva Zelandia el número dos de Chile debe defender 90 puntos, ya que el año pasado llegó a cuartos de final luego de superar la qualy.

Massú padre explicó que, de momento, su hijo seguirá con su actual modalidad de no tener un técnico fijo y ser acompañado a los torneos alternativamente con el argentino Jorge Gerossi y con Leonardo Zuleta. "Preferentemente va a viajar con Gerossi, pero no es su entrenador a tiempo completo, porque él tiene compromisos con otros jugadores también, que no juegan los mismos torneos que Nicolás. Por ejemplo, a Oceanía va a ir con 'Nano' Zuleta y después Gerossi va a estar para los torneos de Sudamérica, que serán Viña del Mar, Costa do Sauípe y, probablemente, Buenos Aires, si no va a Memphis para entrenar para la Davis", comentó Manuel Massú.

Nicolás Massú iniciará 2009 defendiendo cuartos de final en Auckland. Tendrá que revalidar 90 puntos en Oceanía.

Poor Nico....

Reminds me of 2005 when his foot was bothering him before he went Down Under.

Hopefully he's doing the right thing by going to Auckland.

I noticed that he might skip BA for Memphis? Don't know what to think about that.

That sucks ... Hopefully this won't be that serious and he'll be perfectly fine for Auckland

Well it's not sure about not playing BA ... we'll have to wait and see

Looks like Nico will play Buenas Aires rather than Memphis.

Definitely no Acapulco though.

El Mercurio:

Problemas en la preparación del equipo chileno:
El plan Croacia no los tendrá a todos a bordo

A la ausencia de Paul Capdeville en la puesta a punto de París, se suma la preferencia de Nicolás Massú por jugar Buenos Aires en vez de Memphis.

Juan Pablo Salas V.

El desafío es mayúsculo. Por eso, Hans Gildemeister elaboró una preparación para la serie de Copa Davis ante Croacia en Porec que abarcaba tres semanas y que, originalmente, costaba cien millones de pesos.

Y aunque en rasgos generales la fórmula original del "Biónico" se respetó, sus planes han ido sufriendo varios golpes que podrían terminar desvirtuando la idea que tenía el capitán chileno.

Lo primero fue el financiamiento, ya que Chiledeportes sólo aprobó la mitad del dinero que la Federación de Tenis había solicitado mediante la presentación de un proyecto. Con sólo 50 millones, el plan sufrió algunos ajustes.

Y luego Gildemeister ha tenido que luchar con el conflicto entre sus intereses como estratega del equipo y las prioridades individuales de los jugadores.

El plan del capitán consiste en reunir al equipo en el ATP de Memphis (que empieza el 16 de febrero), luego entrenar (la semana del 23) en Roland Garros y viajar a los Balcanes el fin de semana anterior a la serie (que se celebrará entre el 6 y el 8 de marzo).

Pero Paul Capdeville ya le informó hace algunas semanas que a París no irá, porque en esa fecha estará disputando el ATP de Delray Beach. Y no es todo: juntar a todas sus tropas en Memphis tampoco está asegurado, porque Nicolás Massú preferiría jugar en Buenos Aires esos mismos días.

"Yo sé que algunos jugadores van a ir a Delray Beach y ya le expliqué a Hans que la semana anterior a la Davis se la doy, que estoy dispuesto a entrenar donde sea, en Chile, en París, en cualquier lado. Si quiere que juegue un torneo, lo juego. Esa semana yo habría competido en Acapulco, pero no voy a ir, para prepararme bien para la Davis. Todavía tenemos una conversación pendiente y no está decidido, pero a mí me gustaría jugar Buenos Aires en vez de Memphis. Así, tendría dos semanas para preparar el partido contra Croacia y casi tres si no me fuera bien en Buenos Aires. Pero tomarme casi un mes puede ser mucho. Yo ya sacrifiqué Acapulco, pero saltarme la mitad de la gira latinoamericana puede ser excesivo", explica el viñamarino.

Massú cree que sus posibilidades de ser titular contra los europeos son importantes. "Durante mi carrera he tenido mayor regularidad sobre arcilla, pero mis mejores resultados han sido sobre cancha rápida. Los Juegos Olímpicos los gané en cemento y también llegué a la final del Masters Series de Madrid en esa superficie. Incluso mi mejor actuación en un Grand Slam (octavos de final del US Open en 2005) fue en pista rápida".

Fernando González sería el único que cumpliría por completo la preparación diseñada por Hans Gildemeister.

OMG see? that's why I love this boy, he totally reads my mind and has decided to not make me feel miserable by coming to Acapulco

Oh and btw I agree with him, if Paul isn't giving up all his tournaments for being under Hans supervision then he shouldn't do it, it's a good thing that he's playing in BA's ... We know that Fernando is acepting Hans plan since he always preffers to play on hardcourts than on clay

And yes, it is hot!!

I don't remember to have seen it before either but it seems that it was during the last DC tie back in September ... at least it seems that time to me
