Ummm....moi? I wouldn't say I have any real knowledge, and I definitely make mistakes, in part because I only discovered Guille a year ago myself. If I tend to find things out, it's because I love to research & write. There is IMO a lot of depth to Guille's game, character and experiences, particularly compared to the average men's tennis pro. There is always something new as well - his game is evolving as he matures which is why I think the future that lies ahead of him will be greater than anything he's accomplished thus far. Learning to play well on grass and advancing to R16 at Wimbledon is a great example of that evolution. When Guille sets his mind to a career task, he generally achieves it, so in time he will master indoors as well if he chooses to make it a priority. (might not be worth the effort (?) perhaps due to risk to ankles/feet and how it is kryptonite to his style of game)
Something interesting to look at during this long lull time,
Guille's old website was removed of course, but there is an internet site that allows you to see the archived copies of sites, so you can see a little of what Guille's site looked like through the past few years. This link is to the Spanish version, but if you have a link to the English version you can plug that into the web.archive.org website (AKA the Wayback Machine http://www.archive.org/web/web.php
) and pull up the old English versions too.

To see the oldest one, try this link: (it took some time to load for me, so wait awhile):
Front page included pic of Guille in shades from before 3/6/01 I guess. If you are patient you can find many pics of his family, etc... by clicking on various links.
