Fingers crossed for him, I'd love to see the Gonzo forehand flying again for one more year at least.

Re: Where is Gonzalez ?

Seems strange really. One minute Gonzo was a regular on the tour and bam, injuries set in and ruin it all. Pretty sensible to end the season early to save his body for 2012, for one last push.

Have to wonder if he'll make a genuine serious effort at getting back near the top 50 or so, or if it'll be just a farewell kinda thing. We know all about all those injuries, but motivation must have also taken a massive hit by now.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Where is Gonzalez ?

He was coming back, played the USO and Wimbledon, and planning to play the indoor season in Europe, but he tore a leg muscle during Davis Cup so he's out again. He didn't look that good when he was playing, but he's had great results in Australia so one can only hope he can do so again.

Re: Where is Gonzalez ?

Andy Roddick got in a pretty good racquet smash in today's match against Murray (that's probably the only good hit he had the whole match) and the commentator was waxing poetic about how Gonzo is the expert. *sniff* Hope he'll be back.

Re: Where is Gonzalez ?

He's done, just resting and getting treatment. I'm going to miss him. IMHO I liked him more than Verdasco on the basis that he had a better attitude and more confidence in himself. This is one of the few players I will truly miss unfortunately.

He broke Federer, and was 5-4; 40-15 on his serve, that's what he meant by the choke.

I mean, yeah, that was depressing, but I'm more than sure perhaps the result would have probably been Federer coming out in 4 sets, even if poor Gonzo won that set, given Federer's ridiculous accuracy and efficiency in that tournament.
