Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

He's the French Open Champion, beating very good players along the way to his win, He and Coria are probably the best claycourt players in the world, and he has one of(if not) the best backhands in the game.

People shouldn't underestimate him.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Apparently it's the "in" thing to do around here.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Roddick bashing is ALWAYS "in". I believe that this Gaudio thing is a passing phase.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Sure, Coria and Gaudio absolutely rule on clay, but I only "doubt" Gaudio when playing on non-clay surfaces. You want to know why? Because he is posting negative records over the last few years on non-clay and because, away from clay, he couldn't win two matches in a row against anybody at any tournament the whole current season long.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Yeh I think on clay that Gaudio can play with anyone. However he is yet to show that he can compete with the best on any other surface, which is what Coria was beginning to do b4 he got injured.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Because Gaudio is on hardcourt against the very best players in the world and given his results and lack of any consistency on fast courts it is no surprise most people doubt him. There is a difference between doubting and expecting him to lose each match 6-0 6-0 though.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

It's an easy thing to do so that's why people do it.

He is not great on hardcourts and anyone with a half a brain would know that, but he can play very well at times on the surface, he is just inconsistent and is honest enough about his own abilities, but he is not going to lose 6-0 6-0 all the time on the surface.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Why does anyone doubt Gaudio?

Coz they don't know him very well

Coz he hasn't a good record on hard surfaces

Coz it's always easier to stand with what you consider to be a majority!

Coz they're too much biased !!!!!!!!

I agree. Though would also say a lot of the problem comes from the fact that Gaston sometimes doubts himself instead of believing in his own ability.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

Yes Rosie, that's sure! But he's working on it! And what he showed in the 2nd set against Federer encourages me to think so all the more.

Re: Why does everyone doubt Gaudio?

When I always read "Gaudio doubts himself", I'm really wondering what else he wants?! Maybe he should look at his Grand Slam trophy at home and repeat the words "I won a Grand Slam", "I won a Grand Slam", "I won a Grand Slam"....
