    ATP MEDIA NOTES - MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2004

    GAUDIO ADVANCES AS FELLOW SEEDS FALL

    Seventh seed Gaston Gaudio avoided the fate of fellow seeds Mariano Zabaleta and Felix Mantilla when he defeated Brazilian wild card Ricardo Mello 6-2, 6-4 to reach the second round of the Brasil Open in Costa do Sauipe on Monday.

    Zabaleta, seeded fifth, suffered a heavy 6-4, 6-1 loss to Spaniard Albert Montanes, who claimed his first match win in five attempts this season.

    Italian Filippo Volandri, a recent quarterfinalist in Vina del Mar, defeated eighth seed Felix Mantilla 6-2, 6-2. Mantilla began the year by reaching the Chennai quarterfinals but he has now lost his past three matches.

    Spaniard Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo claimed his second win from seven matches this season when he defeated Israeli Harel Levy 6-4, 7-6(3).


    WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
    Montanes: “It was a surprising match. I played very solid but I did not expect Zabaleta to miss so many balls. That’s why the result was four and one."

    Zabaleta: "I was very tired today after playing in Buenos Aires and getting here very late.”

    Squillari: (On winning through qualifying) "I have been playing pretty well since I am one of the players that has played more matches on clay this season. I have played five matches in Vina, three in Buenos Aires and here I have already played three qualifying matches. I have a lot of confidence and I am sure I will soon win a tournament. This is doing good to my game since I needed to play matches and the fact of playing qualies is helping me a lot with my confidence and I realize that I can win matches."



    TUESDAY MATCHES

    Top seed Carlos Moya begins his quest to reach a fourth consecutive final this season when he opens his campaign against German Tomas Behrend, who defeated the Spaniard in their only career meeting in Stuttgart last year. Moya won Chennai in the first week of the year and has reached finals in Sydney and Buenos Aires in his other two tournaments this year.

    Second seed Nicolas Massu faces a tough first-round match against fast-rising Argentine Juan Monaco, who last week defeated Nicolas Lapentti and Juan Ignacio Chela en route to the Buenos Aires quarterfinals, where he pushed eventual champion Guillermo Coria to three sets. Monaco won the Sao Paulo Challenger in the first week of the year.

    Gustavo Kuerten, 9-4 on the season, meets Spaniard Oscar Hernandez after a mixed run in the first two weeks of the clay season. Kuerten reached the Vina del Mar final (l. to Gonzalez) but last week lost in the first round in Buenos Aires. Hernandez is 1-3 on the season.

    Wow, Zabaleta is retired years ago, being part of a TV program and is sub-captain of Davis Cup Argentina team, although now they will leave the charge.
