Rafael Nadal into the third round of the French Open

Rafael Nadal into the third round of the French Open

Rafael Nadal defeated Horacio Zeballos 6-2 6-2 6-3 to advance to the third round of the French Open.

Tomorrow, the former Roland Garros champion will face Lleyton Hewitt.

Nadal was far happier about his match against Zeballos that he was after his first round win.

“I think I improved a little bit. I played a little bit better,” Nadal said. “It’s not perfect. But sure, there is a little bit of improvement. It’s always important to play a little bit better every day.”

After some baseline sparring, Nadal burst into life in the fourth game of the first set with three consecutive baseline winners to break Zeballos.

A botched drop shot and double fault by the Spaniard gave Zeballos a break point in the third game of the second set but Nadal saved it with a forehand winner and heavy kicking serve.

He was not seriously inconvenienced again until he was broken in the third set but he immediately broke back and clinched victory with his serve.

Nadal made a mere 12 unforced errors and lost serve only once.

Asked how many men are capable of beating Nadal the way he’s playing at the moment, Horacio Zeballos replied: “Maybe two or three.” Then, after pausing for effect, Zeballos added: “But at the same time; playing together. If they play together, maybe they can win.”

About playing against Lleyton Hewitt, Nadal said: “We know Hewitt. He’s a very dangerous guy and he plays at a very high level. He’s going to do his best to win.”

Hewitt also commented about tomorrow´s match between the top former world number ones:
“I would be surprised if he did anything different. He cleaned me up, last few times,” said Hewitt.

“He’s obviously very dominant, especially on this surface. I’m going to have to go out there and execute what I want to do—and do it bloody well.”

“That’s the reason you play tennis—to get opportunities to play the best players in the world. In the Grand Slams, I feel like I’ve put myself in a position my whole career that’s it’s taken the best players most times in a Grand Slam to beat me,” said Hewitt. “Hopefully I can give him a good match.”

Querrey vs Chela in US Men's Clay Court Championship Final

Querrey vs Chela in US Men's Clay Court Championship Final

Sam Querrey defeated Wayne Odesnik 7-6 1-6 7-5 to reach the finals of the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships.
The American will play against Juan Ignacio Chela, who beat Horacio Zeballos 7-5, 6-2, for the title.

Querrey overcame an inconsistent serve and then resumed his criticism of Odesnik, who pleaded guilty on March 26 of taking vials of human growth hormone into Australia.

“I think you have to wait and find the verdict at the end of it all,” Querrey said. “Yeah, he should apologize.”

Odesnik forced the match to the end and Querrey had to overcome his inconsistent serve to complete the match by breaking Odesnik in the final game.

"Very happy that I won; a little streaky at times," said Querrey. "It started when I was down a break in the third at 1-0. I started to pick it up a little; started to hit my forehand a little bigger, especially inside out to his forehand.

"He knew how hard he had to work to win his service games; I had break points at 3-4, then 4-5 30-all, and then I finally got him at 5-6. I think he was feeling the pressure."

Odesnik’s ace prevented a set point but Querrey won on Odesnik’s forehand error on the next point.

Querrey questioned the ace by Odesnik in the first set tiebreaker, Odesnik said, “It was good.” Querrey shot back, “I don’t need your input buddy.”

Odesnik overcame a break point to hold serve in the third game of the second set and then broke Querrey in the fourth game to take control of the second set.

In the third set Odesnik started better. He served two love games and broke Querrey in the fifth game but Querrey broke back in the sixth game and overcame two double faults to hold his serve in the seventh game. He closed out the game with a 131 mph second serve.

“I had two double faults in that game and then it was deuce,” Querrey said. “I said whatever, hit it as hard as I can and see what happens. It worked.”

Chela and Zeballos traded two service breaks each in the first five games of the opening set. Chela broke Zeballos in the final game of the first set. Chela held after five break points in the fifth game of the second set and then broke Zeballos in the fourth and sixth games to end it.

“The long game, it was very important,” Chela said. “After that game, I was able to break him and win at 6-2. It was very long but very crucial.”

Davis Cup: Argentina takes 2-1 lead over Sweden

Davis Cup: Argentina takes 2-1 lead over Sweden

David Nalbandian and Horacio Zeballos defeated Robin Soderling and Robert Lindstedt 6-2, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) to give Argentina a 2-1 lead over Sweden at the Davis Cup.

The Argentine duo broke twice in the first set Saturday to take a 4-0 lead and had no problems to close the set.

In the second was Sweden who had a great start, taking Zeballos´ serve on their way to a 3-0 lead.

Nalbandian had to fight to held serve in the next game and was able to save a break point. The Argentines then took their chances by hitting back to take Lindstedt’s serve followed by a tight tie-break 7-4.

The third went with serve with neither team forcing a break point for 12 successive games. Soderling was serving at 4-5 in the tie-break and opted to serve and stay back but netted a backhand to hand Argentina double match point. Soderling saved the first with an ace but then Zeballos sealed victory with an angled backhand volley.

“After nine months out it’s not easy to play well but I think I did well today,” said Nalbandian. “Horacio played a great match too. He was incredible. The key was starting really well. I tried to push him all the way and he never let me down. We took every chance they gave us.”

“We had confidence in Zeballos on his Davis Cup debut and he did an excellent job,” Argentinean captain Tito Vazquez said. “It was a difficult match though. The score doesn’t reflect the tension.”

When pushed as to whether he would use Nalbandian in Sunday’s singles, Vazquez said: “Definitely if he thinks he can play he’s definitely an asset for us and I think that we’ll put him in the team,” Vazquez said. “Today he looked okay, good enough to play our No.2 singles.”

Heineken Open 2010: Juan Monaco beats Horacio Zeballos

Juan Monaco defeated Horacio Zeballos 6-3, 6-0 to advance to the second round at the Heineken Open in Auckland.

Monaco capitalised on four of his nine break points while denying Zeballos his two opportunities to secure the win in 63 minutes. Monaco dropped just two points on serve in the second set.

"I think I served really well," Monaco said. "I worked hard in the past month to improve my serve and today I think I served six or seven aces, which is good for me.

"Horacio is a very good player. I knew I would have to be patient and wait for my opportunities to win today. I felt he was a little nervous in the beginning and I took advantage of that."

Juan Monaco will next face John Isner. The Argentine said his second-round match would be more testing.

“Isner is very difficult because you can’t get any rhythm going against him. He just serves very well,” he said.

Andriy Stakhovsky defeated Horacio Zeballos 2-6, 7-6 (8), 7-6 (7) to claim the St. Petersburg Open title.

Stakhovsky saved a match point in the third-set tiebreaker, and sealed the win with a backhand volley on his second match point.

“Frankly speaking, I didn’t expect to win,” Stakhovsky said. “Zeballos played better today. He moved, served and received better, but at the end of the second set he eased the pressure and that cost him the match.”

On his part, Horacio Zebllos said: "I’m satisfied with my results in St. Petersburg. On key points, Stakhovsky played well while I couldn’t put in my first serve. I should have played more aggressively on my break points in the second set.”

Marat Safin was upset by Andriy Stakhovsky 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in the St. Petersburg Open semifinals.

Safin is playing his last season on the ATP Tour and will enter his last tennis event at the Paris Masters.

“I’ve reached the semifinals and it’s a good result for my recent form,” Safin said. “I was serving bad through the entire match and I had to risk and made too many unforced errors. Stakhovsky felt it and dominated the match.”

"I don’t have enough speed at this stage of my career to fight young guys like Stakhovsky,” added Safin before lashing out at journalists. “You guys keep writing a lot of crap about me and I’m forced to defend myself.”

Stakhovsky will play Horacio Zeballos, who defeated Igor Kunitsyn 7-6 6-3.

“He has never played in a final so obviously he should be nervous tomorrow. Besides I don’t want to face Kunitsyn because playing a Russian in Russia is never easy,” said Stakhovsky about the final.

“Safin was my idol when I began to play tennis,” Stakhovsky added. “I will remember this match. I have never beaten a player who had won two Grand Slams.”
