00:00 |[B] COPA ARGENTINALa vuelta de Chelita
[/B]
Luego de seis meses sin jugar, Juan Ignacio Chela retornará a las 
canchas pasado mañana, en su partido ante David Nalbandian. El Flaco 
fue operado de una hernia inguinal. "Buenísimo, me tocó un partido 
fácil de entrada", ironizó el de Ciudad Evita al ver el sorteo. El 
último partido del Flaco fue en Roland Garros (perdió en 2ª con 
Fernando Verdasco).

I just found a video of Juan's press conference after he beat Nalbandian. I don't think there's a video thread here, so I'm posting it here :D:D Since I fail at life and don't speak Spanish :sad:, would anyone be kind enough to summarise what he's saying for me?

I'm not the best person to translate it as I'm not a fluent Spanish speaker, but I can give you some idea of what he said. Argie posters can help you better later :wavey:

He said that he was feeling very good, that at almost all the match he was feeling comfortable with his serve. He said that it was winding a little bit so it was difficult to play.

He said he could play for a long time withouth feeling any pain and it was the prime objective. He said he felt a lot in the rankings but he doesn't care, he wants to play, and also said that there's a chance he plays at São Paulo challenger in the first week :)woohoo: I'm going there) and then he will probably use protected ranking. He says he is very motivated for the next year.

An interviewer asked something about Tenis Pro and what will he do about it now that he will be back playing the circuit, and he said that at some points last year (?) he was feeling tired, not having fun anymore, so the program was a good thing, and in 2009 he will try to keep working with it when he has some free time (I don't know if he really said that).

Asked about Davis Cup he said he would really like getting back to team. They asked him about the captain situation and he said nobody consulted him; he said there are many persons who can be the new captain, and it has to be someone who has the respect of all players. At the end he said Mancini did a great job and said stuff about the final, but I couldn't understand many words.

Asked about him saying once that he would play for 2 more years, he said he always says he will keep playing as long as he has fun, and that can be more 2, 3, 4, maybe 1 year, who knows.

He sounds quite positive, yet realistic at the same time. I can't wait for 2009 :crazy:
