And in mixed doubles, unseeded mexican couple (yay!!!)Ana Paula de la Peña and Santiago González won the gold medal. Silver for Andrea Koch-Benvenuto and Guillermo Rivera (2), from Chile. Bronce for brazilians Ana Clara Duarte and Rogério Dutra (1).

Roi, what is Anna Paula de la Pena's status as a Mexican tennis player?

Roi said...

She is currently the fifth ranked mexican player, but thats a very low 948 rank. Her season hasn't been that impressive to be honest. Just played four torunaments, made semis at two $10,000 ITF in Mexico and in one of those won the doubles title with peruvian Ingrid Vargas. No WTA tournaments whatsoever.

The one player im keeping an eye on is Ximena Hermoso, mexican first ranked at 429. This has been her breakout season playing 21 tournaments with two titles at $10,000 ITF, then seven quarters or semis result of the same kind. Plus, two doubles titles in that same category with lots of finals. As for WTA torunaments, she fell in the first round at Acapulco and Monterrey against Goerges and Wozniak, respectively.

Oh, thanks for that information, Roi. I'll keep my eye out for Hermoso; it would be great to have a visible player from Mexico.

If a single provides a established of hand grips current at his/her
position that a person uses to operate off a spring, then one can
just strengthen the grip of hose clamp looped in the springs
for gearing up for that added little bit with regard to amounts of resistance.
