Why? He should be a hero and inspiration to every Argentine.... he's worked from having next-to-nothing to achieving real greatness at Roland Garros. From what I know, Gaston came from a poorer background while Guillermo came from a middle-class family and was very well supported.
I'm not bashing El Mago. When I see him play, he definitely has that "special touch" that Diego Maradona brought to the football pitch. I know how much Argentines love diego..... they even play songs about him in all the dance/night clubs around Buenos Aires. It's crazy but I love it.
I wonder if Guille will ever enjoy the same adulation?
Anyway, for someone to achieve what Gaston has is very important in a country where there are so many problems, so many struggling just to survive while their politicians are bending over to appease bloodthirsty bondholders.
