hola,
como se dice "one on one" en Espanol?... me refiero a cuando las personas se tratan individualmente uno al otro... a veces en el juego de basketball... los jugadores van uno contra uno o one on one.
gracias.

    I think you said it best for the basketball context -- uno contra uno.

    If you have another context in mind, you should describe it, because the translation would be different.

    Saludos.

    Venezuela --> Spanish -or something alik
    - In basketball: Uno contra uno, but in Venezuelan Spanish :)p), we say "uno pa' (para) uno".
    - In other situations: Cara a cara (face to face), mano a mano (hand to hand, isn't it funny?), frente a frente (forehead to forehead? Now we're getting nonsensical... :D)

    A report on yesterday's Argentinian football (soccer) "superclásico" relates than Carrizo, the River Plate goalkeeper, "tapó tres mano a mano" - in other words, he saved three shots from Boca Juniors players who were one-on-one with him.

    Gracias todos por sus sugerencias...
    quizas no debi haber usado un ejemplo con deportes. Me estoy refiriendo especificamente de una situacion laboral en cual un empleado al ayudar a un cliente, en este caso un hotel, lo ayudaria ... uno a uno?
    gracias!
