personally, I enjoyed watching this tennis more than delray beach. The way the 4 semifinalists were hitting the ball was insane. You see Gonzales hitting that way all the time but what was impressive was Massu's forehand, he seemed to be pushing the ball compared to gonzales then out of nowhere generate so much pace off that side.
IMO Acasuso may be one of the most physically intimidating players on tour. He has huge strokes and he was taking big swings at the ball and making most of his shots. His backhand is amazing(on clay) hitting with almost the same takeback and followthrough as Gasquet and beating him for pace and spin. Nowhere near as good as gasquets though as he doesnt seem to go for as many shots but just hits with so much pace when rallying. Also there is noway he can hit the shot as well on anything other than slow red clay.

Your opinions on this tourney?

I saw some of it. It was quite a special thing to have the 2 chileans face each other at home, and make it a tight 3 setter.

Other than that, all I have to say is that Acasuso looks like Dane Cook.
