Gil was sick and almost retired today.
Machado should have NEVER be called to play a live rubber. His ability to crawl under pressure in big matches is clearly known. With two other good options to play, why put him on court? I can't even want to imagine him playing a live 5th rubber! He would most likely shit his underwear on the court!
Btw I HOPE Tavares plays Setkic tomorrow. Putting Gil again on court would be a suicide. And if Tavares loses (if that happens, someone just shoot him
), João Sousa should be playing the 5th rubber. He has a much better attitude on court than Machado and can return big serves quite well.
