Re: Gaudio Pulls out of Wimbledon

Yes, - they've been talking about this in the Argentine press for a few days now but it has only just been made "official". He is meant to have a heel injury and also be suffering from exhaustion. Can't say I blame him for withdrawing - he hates the grass and never does very well on it - so why not rest, relax at home with his family and enjoy the Roland Garros moment a bit longer? Mariano Zabaleta and Guga have also pulled out, and both David and Agustin Calleri are extremely unlikely to participate though no official announcements have been released about them yet Looks like I'll be cancelling my annual leave and going to work during Wimbledon fortnight - there won't be anyone left in I want to see

Re: Gaudio Pulls out of Wimbledon

Mardy Fish will probably get 16th seed then. I doubt that Gaudio would have got to the fourth round anyway.

Re: Gaudio Pulls out of Wimbledon

I hope he just wants to rest and is not injured
He might have won a match or two since he would have been seeded high.

Rosie, I thought the last time I heard, it's more likely than not that David will participate in wimby?

I really hope he does.

Re: Gaudio Pulls out of Wimbledon

I think it's ridiculous that all these clay courters simply pull out of the grass court season. I can understand an injury, but like when Guga was on top and he simply didn't play Wimbledon, that always pissed me off.

I mean Roddick for instance, has not had good results at Roland Garros, but at least him and a lot of the big servers play every year.

If there are 2-4 weeks more on grass court before Wimbleton, I believe most of these players playing well in Roland Garros will show up in Wimbleton. Most players going deep into Roland Garros are quite exhausted and won't be able to play any tune-up tournaments. From clay to grass is a big adjustment and it's quite useless flying all the way from home (especially South Americans) to Wimbleton and play a match. Looked at Henman this year, he's a good grass court player, he went to SF in RG, no practice on grass court and promptly lost his first match on grass. Let alone players who are not good on grass.

On the other way, there are 2 months of clay tournaments, including 3 TMS before RG, there's hardly any reason players don't show up there.

I so agree with you. His decision is right. Screw the grass season, lol.

Gaston

This is going to make it really difficult for him to stay in the top 20 so he can go to Houston in November.

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

Re: Gaudio Pulls out of Wimbledon

he lost first round last year, he is not going to lose points

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Well, he really wants to Isy, - but he played his first practice session since Roland Garros yesterday (Friday) and still felt some pain in the affected area -so seems like more rest is needed before he can play properly again He hasn't pulled out officially yet, but - personally - I can't see the point of playing when you are in pain, probably losing in the first round, and perhaps aggravating the injury so that it takes even longer to heal with the Olympics and the hardcourt season coming up where he has many points to defend. It will be announced officialy one way or another on Monday or Tuesday next week.

Yeah, that's why Agassi always pulled out of Wimbledon every year

That's why Ferrrero pulled out of Wimbledon after winning RG last year

If the South Americans don't want to be branded "clay courters" they need the cajones to try to do better on grass.

Gaudio, I do think he probably pulled out more from the exhaltation of winning RG, his probably one and only slam.

Henman still has the good possibility of winning Wimby.

I still don't get why anyone would skip Wimbledon, no matter what surface it's on. It's a grand slam!

Yes, I know but by not trying at all this makes it a guaranteed thing how hard it will be for him to maintain that top 20 for 5 more months.

I know that he'll drop out of the top 8 of the CR so if he can just hang on to the top 20 in the ER but he doesn't have much of a cushion to work with .

Re: Gaudio Pulls out of Wimbledon

about wimbledon withdrawals, I think Coria should have stayed home and rested for the four-week grass court season. His goal is to be world number one, and first round losses on grass won't get him there. He should have rested and then swept Gstaad, Kitzbuhel, and Stuttgart to pick up ranking points
