Hi guys Well I'm off to Marseille and then Rotterdam in about half an hour so won't be here for a while, but while I was looking in the Press this morning I came across an article about Alex in the Argentine newspaper Clarins. I'm sorry I don't have the time to translate it now but here is the link and the article in Spanish - with the accompanying photo. Talk to you soon.

http://www.ole.clarin.com/jsp/v3/pag...p?pagId=917171

Cuando Alex Corretja pisó el Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis, enseguida se dirigió al court central y se le puso "la piel de gallina". Todavía recuerda los efusivos aplausos que, en ese estadio, el público le brindó mientras alzaba el primer título de su carrera, en febrero de 1994. "No me voy a olvidar nunca de ese día. Yo era un niño, tenía 20 años y no supe qué hacer cuando le gané a Frana. La gente me ovacionó y sentí una alegría inmensa. Ojalá pueda festejar como lo hice esa vez", le cuenta el español a Olé luego de almorzar en la sala de jugadores del torneo ATP que empezará mañana en el club de Palermo.

Para Corretja, que zafó de la qualy y arrancará en el cuadro principal frente a Guillermo Cañas, el certamen porteño es una "excelente oportunidad para empezar a reencontrarme con mi mejor nivel. Vengo de un 2004 muy raro, en el que me tuve que acostumbrar a jugar muchas clasificaciones. Ahora quiero volver a ser protagonista en los torneos importantes", confiesa el catalán. Claro, el español ya no es el mismo de antes. En 1999 fue Nø 2 del mundo y cerró una buena temporada (tres finales y dos semis); lleva 17 títulos ATP (ganó el Masters en el 98), pero ahora, con 30 años, bajó hasta el 126ø lugar y no festeja desde Kitzbuhel 2002. "Sé que estoy en un momento complicado. Es feo no conseguir buenos resultados después de pasársela viajando y entrenando todo el tiempo. Igual no me quejo, hay muchas cosas del tenis que disfruto y, por suerte, todavía me quedan otros tres o cuatro años más de carrera", comenta Alex, un carismático del tenis masculino.

En la definición del ATP de Buenos Aires del año pasado, Guillermo Coria se quedó con el título tras vencer a Carlos Moyá. Y según Corretja, la final del próximo domingo también podría definirse entre un argentino y un español: "El polvo de ladrillo los hace favoritos. Gaudio lo demostró en Roland Garros, Moyá vino varias veces y festejó. Todos ellos van a ser rivales duros de vencer. Igual, por lo que hablé con los demás jugadores, todos llegan con la ilusión de ganarlo porque hay mucho prestigio en este torneo". A horas de jugar su segundo certamen del 2005, Corretja le espera arrancar con el pie derecho, aunque tiene una difícil: vencer a Willy Cañas, Nø 11 del mundo. El historial entre ambos favorece al español, quien le ganó en las dos oportunidades en que se enfrentaron (Boston 97 y Bucarest 99). Pero como él mismo dice: "es hora de dejar por un rato el pasado y pensar en cómo resolver presente". Lo aprendió de su experiencia.

What a shit 1st round draw and I like them both. Alex is 2-0 against Willy, but the last time they played was 6 years ago.

Poor Alex

Alex played good in the start of the first set ... But when lost his service all his game stopped working

Alex is still in BA, playing doubles with Juan Pablo Guzman against Nadal/Martin. Maybe that's the chance for his first win of the year

Vamos Alex!!!
