Berdych against Fed (and Djokovic) at Wimbledon, del Potro against Fed at the U.S. Open, and Tsonga against Nadal in the Australian Open.

Gonzo vs Haas in AO 2007. A complete demolition.

41 winners and 3 UEs that Gonzo match. Unreal stats.

Yeah, sadly Federer was completely unplayable at the time. It would have been nice for Gonzo to get a slam. I think he served for the first set in the final, but once Federer broke back it was NID.

Re: High risk tennis that paid off

Nadal US Open 2010. Amping up one's serve to that degree obviously comes at a risk.

Nadal on hard court generally. Every time he plays he is risking his knees.

Re: High risk tennis that paid off

Nadull takes the risk of having a time warning every time he plays. What a brave, courageous guy this Nadull!

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!
