Davis Cup: Argentina vs Czech Republic – Emotional First Day

  There were a lot of emotions in Parque Roca on Friday, during the first day of the semi-final tie opposing Argentina to Czech Republic. After all the uncertainty surrounding the presence of Argentina’s n° 1 player, Juan Martín del Potro, suffering from a left wrist injury, and his confirmation that he would play “for […]

Surprises, Frights, Heartbreaking Losses: The Olympics Start At Full Gear (2)

  After going at length on the first winner of the men’s draw, the surprise exit of Tomas Berdych, and the fright Alejandro Falla caused Roger Federer again two years later, there are still, of course, many more events of the first day of Olympic tennis to talk about. However, I will stop on an […]

Eight Men, One Woman, Same Fate: Tough Draw

    The French Open is starting tomorrow, and with the draw coming out yesterday, the first thing I noticed was how bad the draw was for the Argentinean players. Well, the same can be said about the Colombians, as there are two in the main draw (Santiago Giraldo and Alejandro Falla) and the draw […]

Davis Cup – What A Weekend! (2)

If Spain has never really been in trouble against Austria and the United States surprised again by defeating France, the most emotional and tense ties were really those taking place in Argentina and Czech Republic, although for whole different reasons.

Copa Claro – Living The Qualifications A Full

The Copa Claro started today, with the first round of qualifications, and to be honest, I had to make a lot of very difficult choices. As much as I would have liked to watch full matches, it was sadly impossible because there were too many players I wanted to see. But I can say that […]

A Dream Team For The Dream? (And News, etc.)

It’s the off-season, but this doesn’t mean that nothing is happening in the tennis world. The players have resumed training for the most part in preparation of the 2012 season, a few have changed coaches, there were very interesting exhibition tournaments to follow and there will be more coming next week as well, etc.   […]

A 2011 Review, Part 3 – The Year Of The Resurgence (3)

If you remember, a couple of days ago, I started talking about the players who had known some kind of resurgence throughout the 2011 season. I should say those who have improved to the point of reaching, this season, their best career results. I started this part with Alex Bogomolov Jr and Janko Tipsarevic, then […]

Double Duty Translates In Double Triumph

Yesterday, I was blogging about how Carlos Berlocq would today have the double duty of playing both singles and doubles finals at the Copa Topper. And for the Argentine, it translated into a double triumph, as he had the better of young Portuguese Gastão Elias in the singles finals and, a couple of hours later, […]

The Double Duty Of Carlos Berlocq

The Double Duty Of Carlos Berlocq

The Copa Topper will reach its conclusion tomorrow and all week, we’ve been spoiled with great clay-court matches on the grounds of the Vilas Club, in Buenos Aires. Sadly, I was here in Montreal following everything but it was, nonetheless, a very enjoyable tournament and tomorrow’s finals should be as interesting as this week has […]
