    Brazil and Chile emerged as the respective Men’s and Women’s Team
    champions at the Latin American Championships in San Salvador on Monday
    23rd March 2009; at the final hurdle, Brazil overcame arch rivals
    Argentina, whilst Chile defeated Colombia.

    Both teams had
    started as favourites to contest the gold medal duels with the
    Brazilian squad of Hugo Hoyama, Cazuo Matsumoto, Eric Mancini and Paolo
    Rocha occupying the top seeded place, whilst the Chileans, Berta
    Rodriguez, Paulina Vega, Natalia Castellano and Blanca Duran, were
    seeded two.

    Quarter-Finals Negotiated
    The
    qualification group stage negotiated successfully, Brazil overcame
    Ecuador in the quarter-finals by three matches to one with the one
    contest to go astray being the defeat of Eric Mancini by Geovanny
    Coello.

    Furthermore, the contest nearly went the full five match
    distance with Hugo Hoyama only beating Alberto Miño by the skin of his
    teeth. The two further wins for Brazil came from Cazuo Matsumoto
    against Alberto Miño and in the doubles where Hugo Hoyama and Eric
    Mancini proved far too strong for Geovanny Coello and Dino Suarez.

    No Charity
    A
    place in the semi-finals booked, the same Brazilian trio lined up
    against the Colombians Mauricio Rivera, Juan Restrepo and Alexander
    Echavarria; in no mood for charity the Brazils recorded an impressive
    three matches to nil victory with no contest going the full five games
    distance.

    Final
    However,
    the final was a much tougher affair and it could have gone in favour of
    Argentina just as easily as it went in favour of Brazil. The first
    three matches all went the full five games distance.

    Hugo Hoyama
    overcame Gaston Alto, Cazuo Matsumoto accounted for Pablo Tabachnik
    whilst for Argentina, Gaston Alto and Diego Temperley joined forces to
    beat Hugo Hoyama and Eric Mancini.

    Alas for Argentina there was
    to be no incredible recovery, Cazuo Matsumoto beat Diego Temperley in
    straight games to bring matters to an abrupt conclusion.

    Women’s Team Event
    Success
    for Brazil and success for Chile in the Women’s Team event with
    semi-final victories recorded over Puerto Rico’s Jerica Marrero, Lyanne
    Aponte and Glorianny Baba by three matches to one, before a three-two
    victory was posted over Colombia’s Paula Medina, Aura Ocampo and Luisa
    Zuluaga.

    At the semi-final stage Colombia had beaten top seeds
    Brazil represented by the squad of Jessica Yamada, Ligia Silva, Mariany
    Nonaka and Carina Murashige.
