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.

Capdeville and Massú could face each other during the third round, although the Santiago native will have to defeat a rival that he just recently lost to in Kitzbühel before going up against Russian national Nikolay Davydenko (ATP No.10) and Austrian player Stefan Koubek. 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...

SANTIAGO.- Paul Capdevlle (ATP No. 91) defeated Argentine player Máximo González (ATP No. 74) in the second round of the Estoril ATP 250 tournament (for 450,000 euros in prizes) and has continued his winning streak after a victorious first match against David Nalbandian (ATP No.19).

27/04/09 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO.- The ATP semi-finals in Barcelona did not help Fernando González very much to improve his ranking. The Chilean player climbed only one position in the classification announced today by the ATP.

10/11/08 - EMOL (Chile)

SANTIAGO.- Nicolás Massú has had a good finish to the season. The tennis player has been steadily climbing in the ATP ranking after displaying high-quality performances at the challenger tournament and is currently moving further away from the top 100 category, and closely approaching the top 50. The Viña del Mar native jumped three slots this week and is currently listed as Nº 78 in the world. Meanwhile, Fernando González and Paul Capdeville have kept their positions intact, coming in at Nº 15 and Nº 104 respectively. In Shanghai, the season's top eight players are currently battling it out in the Master's Tournament. There have been no changes at the top of the ranking and the top 10 players have remained the...

20/10/08 - EMOL (Chile)

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...

To see international photos, click here SANTIAGO. - Nicolas Massú (117th) has done his part and advanced to the semifinals of the Challenger tournament in Tunisia. The Viña del Mar native managed to defeat Frenchman Julien Benneteau (63rd) in two uneventful sets with scores of 6-4 and 6-2. On paper, Benneteau made for a difficult rival since he was seen as the number one player at the tournament, proving that Chile’s number-two tennis player still has some fight left in him to move up in the ranking. At the semifinals, Massú will go up against Brazilian player Thomaz Bellucci (126th), who defeated Paul Capdeville (136th) in two sets with scores of 6-3 and 6-4, preventing the possibility of a standoff between two Chilean players. The match, which is scheduled to be this Saturday morning, will be the first time Massú will face Bellucci in the...

To see international photos, click here SANTIAGO. - Nicolás Massú has had some tough days recently in the ATP circuit. After losing in the first round of the Costa do Sauípe tournament against Nicolás Almagro he fell three notches in the ATP ranking. The Chilean appears at number 97 this week, with 432 points, having already lost the ground he had managed to gain the week before.

The number 3 tennis player of Chile, Paul Capdeville, also went down in his classification. The Santiago native appeared today at number 107, two slots below his position last week. Meanwhile, top Chilean player Fernando González moved up one position and is currently at number 15 worldwide. His lumbar...
