Default Re: Luis Horna's Power Room!!!!

Translation of a very recent Lucho interview.

The country's top player, Luis Horna, was in Lima when he received the news about the new king of world tennis, Rafael Nadal, who replaces Roger Federer at the top. He played two memorable matches with the Spaniard and has beaten the Swiss. During a break in his training session at the Promotor Centre of the Las Terrazas Club, Lucho (83 ATP) analysed the changes in the circuit and confirmed he will play doubles with Pablo Cuevas at the US Open, which starts on 25 August.

Did you expect Nadal to be number 1 this year?
Yes, it was no surprise to me. Nor is it that unusual because he's been closing the gap in terms of results. Rafa will be in that position for a long time. He and Federer are fighting for the top ATP ranking now, and that's normal. It's like that in all competitive sports.

Do you think he will finish the year in that position?
I can't analyse that accurately because I don't know how many points have been taken off, but I know it's a big gap. I don't know if it's that Federer has gone down a lot or Nadal has gone up a lot. There has been a big gap between those two and the rest of the circuit; what's been closing is the gap between the two of them.

Was Wimbledon a hard blow for Federer?
Yes, possibly. And the Roland Garros final too - where Nadal beat the Swiss - made a lot of difference. It was basically not a match. Nadal was far superior. And to lose at Wimbledon three weeks later was definitely a very hard blow.

You won the Roland Garros doubles and the singles title in Lugano. Where are you in your career at the moment?
Relaxed. I needed a break. The last few months were very tough. I wasn't able to enjoy the few days I had in Lima after Roland Garros very much. Out of the last ten weeks, I've only stayed at home for four days and I needed to be at home for a bit, with my family. An important part of the season is coming up, with the tournaments in Washington, New Haven, the US Open and then Davis Cup.

Will you be in top form for the US Open?
Yes, this three week break has been perfect to recharge the batteries. I'm really looking forward to it.

Will you play doubles with Pablo Cuevas?
Yes. We're going to play together to try and secure a place at the Masters Cup in Shanghai.

Is it true that, if you've won a Grand Slam, you've already qualified?
That's right. For us to stay up there, no other pair (who haven't already won a GS) must win the US Open, be in the top eight or be better placed than us.

What do you think of Miranda's recovery?
He's in the last stage of his illness. We've been quite worried, but I'm sure he'll be ok for the Davis Cup.

Can you see yourself with any other partner?
No. 'Chino' will be there. We still have a month. I think it'll be touch and go for the US Open, but he will be ok to go to Israel (19 to 21 September).

Have you been following your rivals?
The singles players aren't doing too well at the moment. Neither Dudi Sela nor Harel Levy have done anything major at any tournament. Their doubles pair of Erlich and Ram are always up there. In any case, the tie is going to be very tough.

"It must keep growing"
Horna leads the Peruvian 'armada' on the ATP circuit which now has more representatives than ever before in its history: 12. "It's important, Peruvian tennis is going through good times at the moment and it must keep growing. The guys have to find a way of travelling more. Even if they've won points in the Futures tournaments in Peru, it's different to travelling away and starting to live closer to the circuit. Initiatives such as the Tennis at the Schools of the Terrazas Club also help tennis to grow", he says.

Nice interview

Too bad he only had 4 days with his family because I now this is very important to him.
What is wrong with Miranda? I checked his thread but there is nothing there.

Thanks for posting that excellent video of Lucho and also that interview . I really hope that he can make it to Shanghai with Cuevas. Hopefully they'll be a massacre of seeded players at the US Open.

Lucho has been drawn to face Kohlschreiber in the 1st round of the US Open. The Kohliflower won their 2 previous matches in straight sets, both 1st round clashes at Auckland in 2004 and 2007.

Horna hates playing in New York, he is already out in the singles and is playing doubles with Cuevas, hope they make the end of year champs.

Goddammit Lucho, I don't know what to say, I can't remember what time I got to this match... after the horrifying shock upset of Cuevas and the sad end of Pico, I thought Lucho might save the day but ... I thought at least I could get some pix of him in action but he wasn't even in action, just standing around while Kohlschreiber blasted winners and aces right past him... this day has sucked. Sorry if this post is not in the appropriate spirit of the thread, or whatever. Vamos doubles and all that shit.








(And this was Kohlschreiber...
