Barcelona R2: Robredo d. Gaudio 7-6(6) 6-1

Didn't think Gasty would make Robredo work this hard.

That's a GREAT signal

Keep improving Gato

Always embarassing to lose to Robredo. Hope Gaudio can recover.

Embarrasing effort by Tommy, how this clown won more than 3 games against him is disgusting.

Robredo won 10th tie-break in a row. Is he going to break Roddick's record

Re: Barcelona R2: Robredo d. Gaudio 7-6(6) 6-1

Don't think I can be bothered with this sub-par Gaudio doing the rounds in claycourt events and picking up some dollars. It was painful watching Kuerten and Magnus Norman's attempts to recover form over a protracted period, and if Gaudio doesn't get back to an approximation of his best I don't see a reason to keep trying. To my knowledge, he was never passionate about the game, it was always a job to him, and unless he needs the money why is he making this comeback?

He's well-known in Argentina. All he need do is embark on a series of charity exhibitions and he'll get his.

Maybe he just prefers European women.

Re: Barcelona R2: Robredo d. Gaudio 7-6(6) 6-1

So he lost to Robredo after being gone for almost a year and a half. The first set was competitive, he's said he wants to be out there and didn't start the return with any expectations.

That, along with a paycheck and whatever else comes with it- not seeing a problem.
