Re: Frederico Gil

I saw him and chated a while with him in Madrid Masters last year. It's really a shame what's happened to him this last year, I really hope he recovers and shows that he's still a great tennis player.

Re: Frederico Gil

He's taking a break, or stopping for good?

Re: Frederico Gil

Really??

It's a shame, I felt really sorry for him when he lost to Ricardo Jorge in the 1st round of this week's future.

Do you think it's the end of his career?

Re: Frederico Gil

Well, there is more important things in life than tennis. He needs to take care of this serious healt problem. This is not about tennis anymore, but about him having a good life. I really hope he does. Anyway, we portuguese fans will always thank him for what he has done for our tennis. He was without a doubt, our most successfull player.

Proud fan of:

Sporting Clube de Portugal, Fútbol Club Barcelona, Newcastle United Football Club, FK Vilniaus Žalgiris

Re: Frederico Gil

Well, I have a private information. He'll probably retire forever. I'm not seeing him doing another comeback.

Re: Frederico Gil

He is into the doubles final in Coimbra, hopefully he wins so his career ends with a title.

Go Gil forever! Have a nice life, if it happens what seems now-a-days more and more a reality. You have done so much for Portuguese Tennis!

Re: Frederico Gil

Frederico Gil is amazing. He was in a deep depression and reacted, fought back and now he's already making plans to comeback in 2014. He already has protected ranking, but I think that is out of top-450. He's a fighter, his career isn't finished yet!

Really? That's great news. And do you know the schedule? I guess he'll start playing futures, right?

Even if he loses all matches in his comeback we should give him the best support we can, he deserves it.

When I said, yeah, it was happening. But Gil got worst again and was hospitalized...

Re: Frederico Gil

It seems that the medical diagnosis was wrong, he doesn't have a bi-polar disorder, they were medicating him wrong.

He's going to come back in 2014, definitely, though it may take the whole year for him to be back to his old form.

Re: Frederico Gil

Yeah, Fred found that he isn't bipolar something like.. 1 month ago, if I'm not wrong. Now he have new medication and he's stable, more confidente in himself. Will be back training at 28th October, next week. Vamos Fred! This guy is such a fighter, he's an example for everyone.

These are incredible news! I knew that he was coming back into training, I didn´t know that he changed mediaction, and Bipolar disease is not an issue anymore. So happy for him. What ever happens in terms of tennis career from now on, it's his life that is coming back into terms.
Go Gil! Hope to see you back at next year's Portugal Open! But more important, hope that you have a nice healthy life!
