But I'm sad cause when David lost and he had to give the speech he indicated with his head that he couldn't make it, so the corwd applauded him even more and he started to cry It was very emotional, and then Gastón thanked the crowd and mentioned David's situation and how brave he was. Luis Lobo did the same thing and went with David out of the court.
Lobo has been taking care of David during the whole exhibition, I could see it yesterday when David was watching the prior matches and Luis hugged him and kissed him and spent all the time talking to him. The crowd was great, very respectful and thankful for his fight and spirit.
And finally, I want to congratulate Gastón for this win, he trully deserved it
Reading about David crying is bringing tears into my eyes too.
I feel so sad for him. But I also admire how brave he has been to come here and play, and I'm glad the crowd showed their appreciation of him, that was a lovely gesture of support. And well done to Gaston for his win and being so nice to David in his speech.
Thanks jazz_girl and Rosie for all the articles.
