A post from 2005. The Lopez comment is particularly interesting.
Dania player thoughts from my visit Posted on June 8, 2005 at 10:23:38 AM by Tiger
Please bear in mind these comments are only from a few games. I had but a short time and may not have seen the 'real' player.
Urtaran - He was really pumped tonight - a bunch of sparkling plays. Only one Place to show for it, though.
Jairo - A strong thumbs-up. I really like his form and footwork, and he has a good glove. Give him a couple of years and some additional upper body strength and he will be a star.
Lopez - Strong mechanics. Not a lot of imagination, but that will come. I think weight will be a big problem for him 'cause, even now, he seems slowed. At his age, he should have done something about that middle. I speak from experience here.
Arriaga - When he's on, he's in a class by himself. There's no one better. Lifts his game in response to the crowd (such that it is), almost begs for support. Give it to him!
Egi - Was enjoyable to watch. Is there a lower or faster serve?
Erkiaga II - does not look at all out of place in the later games.
Solozabal - could he be less interested?
Wish I could see more. Wish I could go all the time.
