Why is Guccione at place 320?

He only won 3 matches this year? he did'nt play any grand-slam?
He's now 25 years old and he had some decent results in Australia in the last few years.


I think he isn't that bad??

He has a good serve, decent volleys and sometimes a big forehand??

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

flaw in the ranking system
he should automatically be given 2000 point just because he is who he is

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

He has a good serve, average volleys and almost terrible groundstrokes.

He's an awful player.

He's obese and injured all the time. Also, a lazy-ass.

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

He got injured as was out like 6 months I believe. He's not that great of a player to begin with and most of his good results seem to come in Australian tournaments. He's not a top 100 player. Also, I disagree about the good volleys part. He struggles on backhand volleys and low volleys in the matches I've seen him.

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

Soderling got his act together around this age, same with Berdych who's a year younger. It's becoming more common with the amount of fitness in the game for players to peak at around 25. Especially with how tall Gooch is, I always expected him to pull his game together later in his career.

Expect the Gooch to start peaking in the next few years and become a real contender for the AO

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

Berdych is a good athlete, and is a great ballstriker. Soderling hits the ball consistently harder than any player on tour.

Guccione's only above average shot is his serve. And since his serve isn't on the Isner/Karlovic level, and he doesn't have the ground game of a Brands or volleying skills of a Llodra, he doesn't have anything there to threaten anyone in the top 80 at least. He's also a really mechanical player, like he was taught how to play from a book, not natural. He's simply not talented enough to be a high-level player.

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

The Gooch is a different player in Australia though. He feeds off the crowd like Hewitt and maximizes his potential:

That's him beating the US Open champion in an ATP semifinal

He's also one of the smartest players on tour:


Definitely one of the most underrated players, probably because he's ginger He'll definitely have a serious run at the Australian in the next few years and maybe the USO

Re: Why is Guccione at place 320?

319 players have accumulated more ranking than the Gooch in the past 12 months.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....
