guga watch + sa watch: u.s. open 2007

by

We’re sad we missed it: TSF faves Guga Kuerten played doubles with Robby Ginepri at this year’s U.S. Open. They faced Brazilians Marcelo Melo and Andre Sa in the first round, and lost 7-6 (5), 6-2.

Guga’s optimistic and baggage-free with his recovery from hip surgeries, and is using doubles as a segue back into the pro circuit:

“I’m not regret with everything that happened, even with all my injuries,” he said. “The only difference (is) I have some white hair in my head. I feel a little bit the signs of age.

“I’d rather stick with doubles a little bit, see if my body can respond a little bit better for the future.” (source)

Guga on reserve: Kuerten will be on reserve for the Brazilian Davis Cup team facing the Austrians (in Innsbruck on Sept 21-23, 2007). He’ll back up the team comprising Flavio Saretta, Ricardo Mello, Andre Sa and Marcelo Melo.

Still standing: Meanwhile, at the Open, Sa and Melo will face the Czech team of Frantisek Cermak and Leos Friedl, seeded 15th.
