Leandro : “I’m really happy with the win in the first round against Miguel – I’ve played so many times with him and it’s the first time I’ve been him so I’m really happy with the win.It means a lot to beat someone of Miguel’s calibre, he’s still at the top of the game and has a lot of experience. I’ve been working hard and it’s a good win. I came close at the Panam games, he beat me in the end. This time I could beat him and I’m really happy.

“Last year I was 2-0 up and he beat me 3-2 and in the third game today the ghost appeared again and I had to keep the focus and luckily I maintained the game plan.

“It is also the way I like the play, being patient, and with structure in the back. I said today I have to go short to beat him and I executed some nice shots, I was building confidence and in the end it paid off.”
