Guga played doubles today

Today Guga played doubles with grosjean out on court 3. they were supposed to be playing benneteau and mahut, but they withdrew and were replaced by tecau and mergea. unfortunately guga and seba lost 5-7, 6-3, 6-1.

court 3 was absolutely packed. you literally could not move and everyone was soo behind guga it was amazing.

i can post some pics from it tomorrow if people want

Re: Guga played doubles today

tbh im glad hes retired not because i dont like him, but because i hated watching him lose to players he would have killed in his prime, and thats when he was actualy fit enough to get on court.

bye bye guga!

Please post some pics.

I guess if it's not for Guga, Grosjean probably won't play doubles since he withdrew from singles.

Re: Guga played doubles today

Sounds like you had a great time there, even though Guga lost his match. But how you described the atmosphere out there it is obvious once again why Guga decided to play at RG: To give the fans a last opportunity to see him play. It doesn't really matter if he wins the match or not, though of course it hurts when such a player, who once was No. 1 in the rankings, loses. But Guga doesn't had to prove anything anymore as his achievements in his career speak for itself.

Looking forward to see your pictures from this match

Yes, please post your pictures!

I heard Guga and Grosjean played a few points against each other, at the crowd's request, while they were waiting for their opponents, did you see that?

Re: Guga played doubles today

Couldn't Guga find a fit and healthy player to play doubles with? Maybe he would have had more of a chance.

They hook up in Miami to play doubles together. It's unfortunate that Grosjean is injured just before Roland Garros.

that is correct. they had to wait quite a while for their opponents to come out and the crowd were going mental, go guga asked the umpire if he and seba could have a hit. so they hit a few balls together before tecau and mergea came out then hits the balls into the crowd.

photos coming up asap
