2nd day results of the copa argentina peugeot

* in the initial match of the second day, the Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis eliminated Juan Carlos Ferrero from the tournament after winning 6-3 and 6-4 in a match for the Group B. 
The Cypriot showed a solid game from the bottom of the court and dominated without problems to the Spanish to add three breaks in favour during the meeting. Baghdatis will define this Saturday his passage into the final against Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci , while Ferrero not added victories in Buenos Aires.
It's a pity for Juan Carlos but let's stay positive as we can say that , even he lost , I'm sure those two matches have been a good training session for Juan to prepare 2012 ! 
* in the second match of the day Gaël Monfils won against Fernando González :   6-3/6-4 . That means Fernando González  is also out of the competition .

Juan carlos blog : "C'mon Spain ! We can get it !"

"Hey everyone.
 I'm much less tired after this days resting and in a short period I'll be back to trainings again, probably next Thursday or Friday. Anyway, I continue working in the gym to be ready at the beginning of the season. I have been asked a lot of times about my 2012 aspirations, what I can reach, etc. The truth is that I feel that if everything goes in the correct way I hope I could be next to ranking 15 or 20 and whatever better than that will be welcomed. In addition, I want to encourage the Davis Cup team who will be working to get our 5th tittle this next weekend. Although I won't be in Sevilla next weekend, I want to send all of them all my power and, like one more fun, I will be next to TV everyday and next to my family to watch all the matches. I wish I could talk to all of you and all together could celebrate the Spanish victory against Argentina. Big hugs for all!"
