    What's wrong with that dude? First time I saw him play, I thought he was fluid and full of talent. I have seen him play several times now and think he's got an excellent game. How come he's not with the big boys? anybody know his story?

    Acasuso's got the game (on clay) only to threaten the big boys. He did give federer a pretty good match in the first or second round of last year's us open. His movement and big wind-up strokes hurt him on faster surfaces.

    I think he has had a lot of injuries. He still has a lot of talent and is pretty young since he turned pro so young.

    His game is very fluid but he seems lazy mentally at times, his weapons arent huge enough to let down much mentally. Also in todays game having a one handed backhand is a very difficult proposition, not many can succeed consistently with one.

    Still, I really like his game and hope he does well.
