Lopez Defeats Del Potro!!!

Oh MY! That is an upset. What a tight match. Heavens. My stomach feels all wierd. Sigh. I love Feli- I play with his raquet! He's really handsome. I belong to one of his facebook fan groups. I have seen him up close in Canada on a number of occasions (five years I've been going to the Canada Open...). He's ..a sight to behold. But I never thought he could pull this off. I am now impressed with his tennis, not just his fineness.

Also, Rowan, I leave tomorrow for the week. Blog away if you are able and willing!

Yours Truly,

A tremendous start for Nalbandian but a disappointing ending for Del Potro. That is how you can summarized the overall performance from Day 1.

David Nalbandian was just perfect on every aspect of his game and he could do no wrong. Ferrer did had his moments where I felt that he could pull something, but Nalbandian gave him no room for revival. This was the one of the best performance from Nalbandian that I've seen in a while.

I have to admit that I was expecting Del Potro to give us a 2-0 lead. But I can put the blame entirely on him as he was carrying a minor injury during the game. I'm sure he will look back with plenty determination to win on Sunday.

Now here comes the moment which I fear the most. Just like what happened, it will be the double event that might be crucial for Argentina on their Davis Cup quest. I hope Nalbandian/Calleri can pull something out of this but Spain will have plenty of confidence following Feliciano's win. We'll see how things goes.

In the meantime, please check out my re-cap on the matches from Day 1. Of course, your feedback is highly appreciated.
