    Argentina has put out some serious tennis players in the past 3 years. Not only do they have stars such as corai,nalbandian,zabaleta, but they also have a ton of guys that are very solid top 100 players like ji chela, and augustine calleri.

    If Gaudio actually started focusing on the tour and not his little hair bun I think he'd actually be a contender for almost any clay title.

    There'a also a kid Acasuso I've seen a couple times who has serious game, huge serve, big wingspan but hasn't quite put it all together yet...

    Some of my favourite players are from Argentina.

    Gaudio, Canas, Calleri, Coria was good, Zabaleta, Chela...

    I don't think Mayer will amount to much, same with Schwank. Schwanker was promising a couple of years ago, but has since kind of declined.

    I think Mayer has a lot of potential.

    Thanks for that. That lightened up my day. Didn't read the rest of your post though, sorry. Couldn't get past it.

    Too bad Acasuso can't pull his act together.
    It sure is an explosive game he has.

    The Argentinians are cool. I like all of them, Gaudio was my favorite though.
