WWW Miami R1: [WC] Gonzalez vs Mahut

Will this be the final match of Gonzo's career? Personally, I couldn't care less about the sentimental aspect, I want Mahut to win, he's the one whose career will benefit from taking this match. With that said, Fernando loves Miami, will have crowd support including a large legion of Chilean fans, and we all know he plays his best on the big stages, so this should be a very warm audience for Gonzo, regardless of the result.

The courts are Miami are supposedly playing a bit quicker this season, I think that benefits Mahut in this match-up, he can expose Gonzo's limited mobility and backhand. If he serves well, I think he wins in straights. Gomzo has a bad record against big servers overall and I expect his general lack of match play will show itself.

hoping for gonzo

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Re: WWW Miami R1: [WC] Gonzalez vs Mahut

I don't like Gonzalez but I really do want him to play Berdych in the next round. I'm sure he would also prefer to end his career against a top 10 player anyway.

Saying that I think Mahut will take this.

I will always love Gonzo. He seems like such a sweet guy. Will be missed,

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.
