Tennis in Mexico : Acapulco Open 2013 Rafa Nadal/ Eugenie Bouchard


Both Humberto and I are avid tennis fans and followed the Acapulco Open here diligently.
Rafael Nadal is in blistering invincible form and it is truly wonderful to see this lovely young man back in competition and in such dominating form. Not only that but as defending champion we can expect him back here in Mexico next year which is fantastic news.
The ladies tournament had it’s moments of interest too and my favourite match was between evenual winner Sara Errani and Eugenie Bouchard and not because I am an Errani fan. The up and coming Bouchard is a player to watch for in the future. She should certainly have won the match against Errani but played a loose tiebreak and then lost concentration in the second set and handed the match with a lack lustre performance to an equally lack lustre Errani on a plate.
About Bouchard. She has a good serve and all court game. Needs to work on mobility and speed. Physically she is well built for tennis and has a great future in the game.
Keep working Eugenie, well done for qualifying and getting to the second round and hope to see you back in Mexico next year or sonner if you would like some coaching from Humberto?
I predict a future in the top 20 at least if not the top 10 ladies singles players in the world.How do you like that Eugenie?
We look forward to great things from this lovely young Canadian!
