Mariano Puerta and tonight's match
Hello everybody. I'm new here, and being new, may be inadvertently posting in the wrong forum. Please bear with me.
What I wanted to get some views on was the match tonight between Puerta and Horna. I understand that Puerta was shocked last week in the Idea Prokom Open. Nevertheless, I can't understand why the general public seem so bent on the idea that Horna walks into this match a clear favorite. Now, I'm not one to be fast on making assumptions, so I'd be interested to see if anybody here could resolve this little issue for me.
For example, is Puerta known or thought to be suffering from some recurrent injury, or something of the sort? Are there any other reasons why so many people are taking this stance?
