In another article Wilander got all of his words quoted in the right manner.

- Mats Wilander menade efter matchen att ingen spelare i världen besegrar José Acasuso på just nu.

"Mats Wilander thought after the match there isn't a player who could beat Jose Acasuso at the moment".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The only people seeing smoke was Mats for that comment he made and ToJo from seeing Chucho perform the on court murderation of his game on Friday.

Johansson utan chans mot Acasuso

José Acasuso gjorde processen kort mot Thomas Johansson i sin Davis Cup-debut och besegrade den 30-årige svensken med 6-1, 6-1, 6-3. Argentina har därmed tagit ledningen med 2-0 i matcher efter fredagens inledande spel.

Formstarke Acasuso spelade inspirerat och dominerade matchen med sitt tunga baslinjespel. Johansson hade inte mycket att sätta emot och noterade sin största förlust i en femsetsmatch sedan US Open 2004.

- Jag kunde inte hitta mitt spel och jag var totalt förbluffad av Acasusos spel idag. Det fanns ingenting jag kunde göra, menade Johansson på presskonferensen.

Många trodde att Acasuso skulle darra i sin Davis Cup-debut, men den 23-årige argentinaren visade inga tecken på nervositet. Samtidigt bars han fram av 10 000 entusiastiska åskådare.

- Jag är extremt nöjd med min debut i Davis Cup. Davis Cup är mycket trevligt och mycket annorlunda mot vad jag är van vid på touren, kommenterade Acasuso, som fick förnyat självförtroende efter segern i Vina del Mar för en knapp vecka sedan.



Johansson without a chance against Acasuso

Jose Acasauso made quick work against Thomas Johansson in his Davis Cup debut and beat the 30 year old Swede 6-1 6-1 6-3. With that Argentina have taken a 2-0 lead after Friday's opening singles.

The in form Acasuso played inspired and dominated the match with his heavy baseline game. Johansson had nothing much to resist against and recorded his biggest defeat in a 5 set match since the 2004 US Open.

"I couldn't find my game and I was totally amazed by Acasusos play today. There was nothing that I could do" expressed Johansson at the press conference.
Many thought that Acasuso would quiver in his Davis Cup debut, but the 23 year old Argentine showed no sings of nerves. At the same time he had 10 000 enthusiastic spectators here to cheer him on.

"I am extremely satisfied with my debut in Davis Cup. Davis Cup is very pleasant and much different from what I am used to on the tour" commented Acasuso, who received renewed self confidence after his victory in Viña del Mar less than a week ago.

From DC site

Argentina completes whitewash victory

At the culmination of the third day of the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas, Argentina closed the tie against Sweden with a dominating 5-0 defeat. The Argentines will now look ahead to April’s quarterfinals, where they will meet title-holders Croatia on away ground.

The fourth rubber on Sunday went easily to Juan Ignacio Chela, who overpowered Thomas Johansson 64 61 in just over 56 minutes. The Swedish player wasn’t at his best and faced an inspired and motivated opponent who never allowed him to bounce back.

At the press conference Chela said: “It`s been an honour to play the match today and score one more point for Argentina. I believe the next opponents we meet in Croatia will be challenging but I am confident that we will do well especially after the excellent results revealed just recently in Australia on quick surface.”

Shortly after, Davis Cup debutant Jose Acasuso crushed Jonas Bjorkman 60 61.

In the fifth tie Acasuso proved once more his current physical and technical prowess. More had been expected of Jonas Bjorkman's performance today, particularly as he was chosen to wrap up this final tie in face of such an overpowering Argentine victory.

Bjorkman attacked his opponent's serve constantly but faced a difficult hurdle: Acasuso didn't have any problems effectively using his sharp passing shots, unfolding his game at its best today.

At the net Bjorkman greeted Acasuso with a smile after 54 minutes, revealing the dignified play that is most definitely the spirit held in Davis Cup by BNP Paribas.


Croatia v Argentina preview

There is very little history between the two nations. Only once did they meet in April 2002 at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club on red clay where the home team won 3-2. At that tie, Gastón Gaudio, Juan Ignacio Chela, Guillermo Cañas and Lucas Arnold were nominated to play for their country.

The tie was decided in the fifth rubber after the visiting team came from behind, having lost both previous singles matches. Ivanisevic and Ljubicic won the doubles and Ljubicic went on to beat Chela to take the fourth point. Responsibility was on Gaudio to close the tie and he successfully downed Ivo Karlovic 64 64 62.

This time things look very different. Even though the professional experience of the players is at its highest, there is a significant advantage for the home team due to the surface of the court.

Despite this, the captain of the Argentine team, Alberto Mancini, revealed that he was very pleased with David Nalbandian’s latest performance on the quick court and announced that he would be escorting the team to Croatia. Mancini is hopeful that Guillermo Coria and Gaston Gaudio will overcome their injuries in time for the quarterfinals so that, irrespective of the preference the home team may have for the court surface, a team comprising of three top ten players will intimidate.

The Argentine team watched the course of the tie between Croatia and Austria with great interest this weekend, with the hope that they would meet Austria in April on home ground. It was a possibility that was not ruled out so easily, as two of the matches were long and drawn out, and closed by a very narrow margin.

Too bad it didn´t turn out for the home team.

I´m too lazy right now to translate this (will do it later or tomorrow..., unless someone feels like doing it... ) But it´s about the friendship between Chucho and Martín Vasallo Arguello

Siempre amigos




Cuando a cada uno de ellos se le pregunta por sus amistades en el circuito, ellos se nombran entre sí. Uno dice José Acasuso, el otro; Martín Vassallo Argüello. Aunque Martín es dos años más grande que Chucho, compartieron varios años de giras, vuelos y hoteles a partir de 1996, desde la etapa de juveniles. A partir de ahí, nació una amistad que se afianzó cuando el misionero comenzó a vivir en Buenos Aires, relación que continúa hasta hoy. En el profesionalismo se enfrentaron una sola vez, fue en un challenger disputado en San Pablo en 2001 y el duelo se lo llevó Acasuso. Hoy Vassallo quiere revancha. Más allá de quien gane, lo que está claro es que la afinidad continuará. ¿Quién dijo que no se puede tener amigos en el tenis?

EDIT:
translation
Allways friends
Everytime one of them is asked about his friends in the tour, they name each other. One says José Acasuso, the other Martín, Martín Vassallo Argüello. Although Martín is two years older than Chucho they "shared" (not the right word ) several years of tours, flights and hotels since 1996, since they were juniors. From that moment, a friendship that became stronger since the misionero moved to Buenos Aires, was born. That relation continues these days. As professionals they faced each other only one time, in a challenger played in Sao Pablo 2001 and Acasuso won the match. Today Vassallo wants revenge ( ) Apart from who wins, what is clear is that the friendship will continue. Who said it was not possible to have friends in tennis?

Acasuso habló temprano
(Acasuso talked early)

De cara el encuentro que tiene en cuartos de final ante Agustín Calleri, José Acasuso habló temprano cuando llegó al Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis. "Es una lástima que nos tengamos que eliminar en cuartos de final con Calleri, no sólo porque somo los dos argentinos en carrera, sino también porque somos amigos".

About his QF match against Agustín Calleri, José Acasuso talked early when he arrived to the BALTC. "It´s a pity we have to eliminate each other in QF, not only because we are the 2 argentines in the draw, but because we are friends"


En referencia al clima, Chucho confesó que "se siente bastante, mucho por la humedad, por lo que habrá que hidratarse bien para rendir al máximo". El misionero, que no pierde hace nueve partidos, ya se convirtió en el máximo ganador en el ATP de Buenos Aires con 14 encuentros. Ahora deberá sortear un nuevo rival, que no es nada fácil por cierto.

About the weather Chucho confesed that "you feel it a lot, a lot due to the humidity, reason why it´ll be necesary to hydrate myself to have the best performance". The misionero, that has got a winning streak of 9 matches, became the player with more matches won in the Buenos Aires ATP with 14 matches. Now he´ll have to win against other rival, that won´t be an easy one at all.




Lets go for the 15th Chucho

I post this one because the RS part made me laugh

Quote:
COPA DAVIS
Satisfaction

Olé hizo una encuesta y la gente quiere a Acasuso contra Croacia. "Es una gran alegría", dijo desde River, mientras esperaba por los Stones.
FERNANDO VERGARA Y BERNARDO VAZQUEZ.



Caminando ayer por las calles porteñas, en cada cuadra o en cada esquina, era probable encontrarse con alguien con una remera de los Stones, o algo identificatorio que demostrara que era un día especial. Claro, anoche Jagger y compañía daban su show en River. Para José Acasuso, ayer también fue un día importante...

En el Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis, antes de la finalización del ATP porteño, Olé realizó una encuesta sobre quién debería ser el segundo singlista en la serie de Copa Davis ante Croacia (del 7 al 9 de abril, en Zagreb). Se descarta que David Nalbandian será el primero, si no sucede nada que modifique ese esquema. Las alternativas fueron varias, pero el misionero José Acasuso resultó ganador, y por un margen muy amplio. Chucho se enteró por este diario de la encuesta realizada y cuando se lo llamó telefónicamente, José estaba ¡en el recital de los Stones! "Perdón si no te escucho muy bien, es que a esta hora (las 18) ya hay un griterío bárbaro en la cancha", aclara de entrada, entre risas.

El momento que atraviesa Acasuso es el mejor de su carrera profesional. Por eso la elección del público del tenis. "Es una alegría grande que la gente te elija así. Reconocen y notan el esfuerzo de uno", cuenta Chucho. Mirando la serie con Croacia, hay un sustento a favor del misionero: su clara mejoría y su avance en canchas rápidas. Siempre se lo vio como un jugador con las condiciones suficientes como para adaptarse a cualquier tipo de terreno y le faltaba plasmarlo. De a poco, mejoró su servicio y sus golpes van saliendo cada vez con más potencia. La derecha le corre y el revés fue siempre uno de sus puntos fuertes. "Siento que en el 2005 anduve mucho mejor en canchas duras. Ahora se viene Acapulco, pero después vamos a Indian Wells y Miami y tengo que estar a full con esa gira", reconoce. Hay un factor fundamental en la Davis: la experiencia. Lógicamente, Acasuso viene de debutar en la Copa y todavía le falta roce, y quizás esto le pueda jugar en contra.

El aluvión Acasuso y ''su'' mes comenzó el 31 de enero en Viña del Mar. Chucho le ganaba al español Navarro Pastor y se metía en octavos. Mirándolo así parece algo insignificante: un pase a segunda rueda ante un rival inferior. Pero en el futuro cercano del misionero asomaban horizontes nuevos. Desde allí se sucedieron varias cosas. La lesión de Gaudio le permitió ser citado para la Davis. Siguió enfocado y se llevó el campeonato en Viña, en single y doble (con Sebastián Prieto). En el debut copero paseó a Thomas Johansson y, con la serie lista, sólo cedió un game ante Jonas Bjorkman. "Todavía falta, pero obviamente que quiero estar", finalizó. Esta semana, su raid de febrero paró. Y se dio una vueltita para ver a los Stones.

I really don´t know how "serious" this survey is, it seems they only used 100 votes to do it....
And I don´t agree with most of the things this article seems to suggest..., but maybe it´s just me...
Whatever..., I think the anecdote and the quotes are the most important thing of the article.



Brief (and rough, sorry) translation

(the article is from Wednesday and the RS concert was on Tuesday)
The article says that before the BA ATP was finished, Ole (the sports newspaper) made a survey about who should be the 2nd singles player (considering Nalbandian is the first one) against Croatia. Chucho won and with an important gap between him and the next.

Ole called to tell him about it and he was in the Rolling Stones concert! "Excuse me if I don´t hear you well, what happends is that there are already (6 pm) "screams" (rought translation) in the stadium" - Chucho said
"It´s a big joy when people choose you like this. They recognise and notice the efford you make"
Then the article says how he improved this last time and how his tennis can adapt to any surface, blah, serve, blah, power, blah (anything new)
"I feel that in 2005 I did a lot better in hard courts. Next is Acapulco, but then we go to IW and Miami and I have to be "a full" with that tour"
Being "a full" is an expression that means giving it all, putting all the efford in something... it can mean thinking about it all the time (in a negative way) too. Depends how you use it can mean different things. IMO, in this case he is talking about the efford and the work he must put on the preparation of hard court MS.
Then the article says that experience is important in the DC and probaly that is something Chucho lacks to be the 2nd singles player for sure.
"It´s still too soon, but I obviously want to be there"


Image:
above it´s the survey and then some of his records...
5-20 on hardcourts between 2001 and 2004
11-11 during 2005, reaching QF in Cincinnatti
0-2 during 2006 losing in Auckland and AO in first round

Default Re: Chucho News and Articles

What it seemed a brief interview to Chucho was made in ESPN LA tv show Tenis 2006 (Alexito posted the caps in the pics thread). I missed almost everything..., I think.
But he did say that:

-Tennis is not his passion, tennis is his work, what he does for living. He obviously enjoys it more than doing other thing, but you go through difficult times in tennis. Sometimes, during certain tours, you already spend 5 weeks abroad and you start to miss your country. There are also nice moments you enjoy a lot like winning a title or playing Davis Cup, etc, etc...
-He also said that tennis let him know lots of places that otherwise he wouldn´t know, but it took things away from him too. For example, spending more time with his family, enjoying more Misiones (he started living in BsAs when he was 15), enjoying his highschool graduation trip, etc, etc...

And that´s all I watched of the interview. If I can watch it all, I´ll post the rest..., which I don´t think it´s a lot more... But I´m almost sure they asked him about his last performances, at least.

DEJA JOSE ACASUSO ABIERTO MEXICANO POR LESION EN PIE DERECHO

( 1 de marzo de 2006, 04:11 PM)

Por Ricardo Coello Elizalde. Enviado
Acapulco, Gro., 1 Mar (Notimex).- El argentino y quinto sembrado, José Acasuso, se retiró del Abierto Mexicano de Tenis debido a una lesión en el pie derecho, en el partido de segunda ronda ante el español Nicolás Almagro.
Acasuso, verdugo del mexicano Santiago González en la primera ronda, sintió molestias luego de concluir el primer set, el cual perdió ante el ibérico, quien viene desde la ronda de calificación, a pesar de haber recibido anteriormente atención médica.
La versión de ATP es que el pampero tuvo un golpe en el talón cuando éste se encontraba descalzo fuera de la actividad del torneo, y tras retirarse del Estadio Mextenis, fue llevado a una clínica para tomarle unas radiografías.
A pesar de la lesión que dejó fuera a Acasuso, el pampero lució buen nivel en los primeros juegos del set inicial; incluso tras el rompimiento de Almagro en el servicio del sudamericano, todavía continuó dando lo mejor de sí para buscar igualar la manga.
Luego de caer en el primer set, Acasuso solicitó apoyo médico para atender la molestia. El doctor colocó en el pie derecho del argentino una venda para tratar de proteger el golpe y aminorar el dolor.
Sin embargo, el argentino no pudo continuar más, para convertirse en el cuarto cabeza de serie que deja el certamen en las primeras dos rondas, al lado de Guillermo Coria (1), Filippo Volandri (4) y Florent Serra (6).

A brief translation of what the article says about the injury:

Chucho retired from the match with a right foot injury.

(and here, IMO, the article is not well written LOL)
Chucho started feeling something was bothering after the first set finished, despite recieving medical attention before.
(so, the pain was previous to the end of the first set.... )

The ATP version is that José had a “golpe” (don´t know the word..., ¿he “hitted” his heel?) in his heel while he was barefoot, apparently in his free time.

After leaving the Stadium he was taken to a clinic to take x-ray.

Despite the injury, the journalist says that José had a good level in the first games, and even after Almagro broke his serve he continued fighting.
After the first set Acasuso called the trainer and his foot was bandaged, but he couldn´t continue the match.
