Hi Sixto. I had a chance to watch the match. Urriza's "over his head scoop" rebote was the best shot (even better than Etxeberria III's behind the back rebotes) I've seen in a Remonte match. And the way Otaegi played at the end was amazing. I like Azpiroz but I think he was a bit overmatched. Urriza was taking more and more rebotes as the match progressed. When Azpiroz learns the rebote like Etx III or Ion, he will really be a force.
I started watching the next match (Ezkurra-Etx III v Uterga-Endika) and you can really see the difference between A and B players. Otaegi had a great match, but most of the young players I've seen really like to smash the pelota all over the place. Watching Ezkurra, Uterga, and Etx III play is such a pleasure because they know so much about what they can and can't do. They never seem to waste an ounce of energy and always seem to pick out the right shot for the situation.
I like when they have tournament finals. The energy level at Hernani seems to pick up a lot.
Are you going to the Casco Viejo final? Another Urriza-Uterga battle. Should be a great match. Replies:
