Three Brazilians lost on the same day in home soil. Belluci, Monteiro and Silva. It is time that they sell this tourney to Yemen.

If you use that rationale, we should have lost the accreditation of our own Nat'l Chp. in the STATES with how lame our offerings have been over the years! Sock is leading a new generation, thank goodness and we can now represent anywhere in the world; even with the ladies! Angel Clap Eyepop

I am sure I can think of a good answer. Just wait and you will regret that you made that comment. Thing is that you may have to wait for some years...

Bellucci hardly does well in Brazil, oddly enough he can not deal with the climate here... Monteiro had a tough first round against Berlocq (they have their own little rivalry), and Dutra Silva gets tight playing in Brazil. They guy worked his arse off to get to the top #100 and I hope he can go a little further than that.

So my bold predictions to the Brazilians:

Monteiro gets a scalp at R1 in RG, he is a very fine clay courter, with a very heavy forehand, and plays better when against good players. He could well surprise a lower seed there.

Bellucci gets to semi´s in Madrid.

Dutra Silva keeps fighting...

Couldn´t make it to the tournament this year yet but I hope to see at least one match this weekend.

Carreño Busta is a fine player, but so is Cuevas. I guess the real final is their semi.

Match interrupted with Ramos leading 1x0 and 3x3 in the second. Heavy rain here in São Paulo so a good chance of a monday final.

The final was scheduled to start in 5 minutes (12 am local time) but heavy rain started to fall. Not looking good with heavy clouds all around.

Finally they were able to play (six hours later than initial schedule) and Cuevas managed to win just before it started to rain again.
