    About Buenos Aires

    It's easy to sell Buenos Aires on its major charms: beautiful 19th C. architecture, wide boulevards...Paris and Madrid with a South American spin; to swoon over the Tango, and the frankly very beautiful inhabitants. It has a quaint cafe life, and an historic football rivalry (Boca v. River.) But Buenos Aires has a very modern side, too. Palermo is the center of vibrant film and fashion communities. And then there's the Bomba del Tiempo, a weekly Monday night drum festival in an old warehouse that offers not much more than a cold beer, a hard floor to stand on - and a transcendental musical experience. For all of its Old World elegance, BA also has a lot of 21st C. flair that is all its own.

    I expect Carreno Busta to do well, if Cuevas still has his clay game intact they┬┤ll make an interesting semi. The winner gets Nishikori if he is not surprised by some grinder of his half. A lot of them around that can get a big scalp early on the clay season.

    Second quality opponent beaten by Monteiro (Robredo), I was expecting a slump but he is fortunately proving me wrong. Now he gets Berlocq, a tough grinder who took out Ferrer.
