Guga played a good match. Not as good in the beggining, since he needed sometime to get used to the serve-volley style of the argentinian (yes, indeed, those two words are together... )
Etlis was very good in the start, and players were holding serve easily. Guga had one bp and Etlis none in the first. The tiebreak was pretty weird, since Guga led easily from the start, and he served at 6-3 and lost both his serves... Then he minibroke Etlis again with a return winner with a backhand crosscourt. Wonderful stuff.
The second set was history, since Gaston could harldy put one volley in and Guga was just too good. Kuerten finished the match at full strength, wanting to head the confidence on to the doubles match with Andre Sa, which they won as well.
Sa lost in the singles, though, which was bad.
Coria is still kicking ass. Very good to see him back to his form, since he is one of my fave players.
Ramon Delgado is also looking very good right now. It wont be easy.
Good luck Guga in singles and doubles!
