Although he suffered a three-set loss to Albert Montanes in Vina del Mar, former Olympic gold medalist Nicolas Massu of Chile says he was pleased with the way he played and believes he’s once again on the right track.

The 33-year-old is currently ranked No. 578 and spent 2012 playing Challengers, where he only reached one semifinal. “I just missed winning, but the good thing is that I am returning to the path of good tennis,” Massu told reporters. "Now I'm another player and I feel ready to play at this level. Last year I was here with pain, I wasn’t competitive, then I was injured six months without competing and I was paying the consequences of that. Now I'm healthy and motivated again.”
