22/05/09 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO/ PARIS.- The Chilean tennis players at the Roland Garros tournament enjoyed a beneficial drawing, although two of them could face each other during the third round. Fernando González (ATP No.12) will face a player from the qualifiers, Paul Capdeville (ATP No.76) will go up against Argentine player Diego Junqueira (ATP No.79) and Nicolás Massú (ATP No.122) will play against Austrian player Daniel Koellerer (ATP No.81).

Meanwhile, Massú and Koellerer faced each other in Kitzbühel in 2005, where the Viña del Mar native triumphed by 7-6(5) and 7-5. If he moves on to the next round, he will...

Meanwhile, fellow Chilean players Nicolás Massú and Paul Capdeville maintained their positions in 86th and 87th place, respectively. At the top of the ranking, Rafael Nadal (who took first place at the Conde de Godó tournament for the fifth consecutive time) gained 200 points on his closest competitor in the ATP classification, Swiss player Roger...

The match will be played indoors on a hard court at the Visenamjenska Sportska Dvorana de Porec Stadium, which has a capacity for 4,000 spectators.

On that occasion, the Croatian player took the match, scoring 6-3, 6-2 during the first phase. Paul Capdeville (Nº93) and Marin Cilic (Nº19) will play second and have never faced each other before.

To see international photos, click here SANTIAGO.- Chilean tennis player Fernando González' return to the top ten was short lived. After just one week of being included in the select list of the top ten tennis players in the world, Chile's number one athlete has dropped to Nº 13 in the world ranking following his elimination during the finals of the Madrid Masters Series – forcing him to bid farewell the top ten list. Furthermore, it is quite probable that Gonzaléz will finish the season outside of the top ten, since he will not take part in the Basilea tournament this week and probably will not play at the Paris-Bercy championship, which is scheduled to begin on October 27th. Nicolás Massú however –who was not able to play the Montevideo Challenger final yesterday due to stomach problems- is experiencing a very different turn of events. Massú's winning streak at the...
