29/05/09 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO.- Unmatchable. This is the word that can be used to describe Chilean tennis star Fernando González' (ATP No.12) performance so far at the Roland Garros Tournament. The Chilean athlete triumphed today in a heated match against French player Josselin Ouanna (ATP No.134) with set scores of 7-5, 6-3 and 7-5 in one hour and 54 minutes. It was the first time the two players had ever faced each other, which lead to some uncertainty concerning the level of game play that would be observed in Ouanna. The French player however, did not disappoint. Meanwhile, González, who today served up 11 aces and committed 26 non-forced errors, will face Romanian player Víctor Hanescu (ATP No.33) in the fourth round.

SANTIAGO.- It is the end of this road for Nicolás Massú (ATP No.120) at the Roland Garros Grand Slam Tournament, after he was defeated today during the second round of the championship by Swiss player Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP No.18) with scores of 6-1, 6-1 and 6-2 in 1 hour and 14 minutes. The Chilean player has once again been left behind after a match where his Swiss counterpart was noticeably superior, with Massú playing erratically and displaying problems with his backhand. Massú has never been able to make it past the third round of the Roland Garros tournament and this time was no exception. The two players had faced each other twice before, with one win for each. It was for this reason that many thought Massú could still possibly move on in the Paris championship. Nevertheless, after the beginning of the first set it became quite apparent that the Swiss national was...
