Ok, this does not mean he has to win all of them in a year and even if that ridiculous thing happened, it would still be discredited.

It has been established that on clay that Gaudio is a big joke, a disgrace to tennis, a piece of crap that only won RG because the other player was injured in the final, defying the medical journals of the world that cramp has never been designated as an injury.

Yes, he had an easy draw and was able to put some curse on his opponents that caused him to win 5 set matches.

With the above taken into consideration if he managed to win all of these titles at least once, would it get the kudos it deserved or would all the great excuses come out to deny it happened.

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".

There will always be good reasons for the true unbelievers, no matter how many titles he'll win. That's just the way it is!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Lots of players don't get the respect they deserve. Gaudio doesn't even need to win any of these mentioned titles, even what he did the last two weeks deserves credit for winning back-to-back titles.

It's more a question of who is willing to give some credit to the players even if they don't like particular ones.

Re: If Gaudio wins RG, Hamburg, Monte Carlo and Rome would he get any respect?

Perfect example my loathing for Roddick is clear, but the North American summer in 2003 where he just went on a tear has to be respected, he hasn't been the same since, but like that was going to happen.

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".

Stop stating the obvious, well Lendl and Wilander didn't or don't get the respect, so how is little Gaston going to.

Respect for Gaudio on clay, but not so much on other surfaces. I always thought he was a good claycourt player, although I didn't expect him to win RG. It has to be said he was a little lucky to win the final, but the other 6 matches were totally deserved, he just outplayed his opponents.
I think people have a hard time respecting Gaudio cause he's a joke on other surfaces and he shouldn't be top 10 therefore.

I agree.

But, when another player performs this feat... he's ridiculed. It makes no sense to little ol' me.

Re: If Gaudio wins RG, Hamburg, Monte Carlo and Rome would he get any respect?

Cervantes, could you please read the question clearly as it relates to clay and clay only and not other surfaces.

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".

I think on clay he already has respect.

BTW, question for you, George: what exactly makes you think Gaudio doesn't get the credit he deserves?

Anything in particular?
