Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

It's disappointing for the fans in Brazil, but it's not unexpected with the form he has shown in the last 2 weeks.

That's the problem does he turn up, put in a rubbish performance in the 1st round and then get accused of taking the money, then again he doesn't take guarantees he didn't for the summer tournaments in 2004. Or if he doesn't turn up, then it's not good, but a break would be good for him though.

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: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

Too bad for the tournament, but I think it's a smart move from Gaudio's point of view. Mandatory tournaments coming up, so it's good to take a week off and get some rest.

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

I'm perfectly aware that it is sad for those who were enjoying to see him there. But I think it is the rightest decision, given what he has physically given within the past 2 weeks. He knows he wouldn't be at his best, so he prefers retiring...Wise choice I should say. There are other important events coming up. He needs to rest.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

If Gaudio turned up after winning in Buenos Aires, he would only be cheating the fans with a sub-standard performance.

Then again he probably didn't think he would win 2 tournaments in a row.

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".

To be totally honest, I can perfectly understand that it's been a surprise. A happy one for sure but a totally unexpected one I should say.

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

I am very glad that Gaston took this decision.
The clay court season has only just begun and he should
be aware of his health.
So for him it´s the right decision, but of course I can understand that all his
fans in Brazil are very sad about it.

I miss you on tour, Nors, Bjösse, Simon & Pim Pim

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

I understand why he did it, but he should still be fined as he is obviously not injured.

This does make Rafael's title pursuit much easier!

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

This is basically 100% comfirmed? Chris Rochus gets his spot?

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

he played a couple of five setters at the aus open and has won 2 clay tournaments in a row with some very tough matches. playing another clay tournaments would be very foolish as he would either lose early or really put in self at risk of injury or just getting worn out at such an early point in the season.

i was amazed when i read he was playing again this week and although i understand it is frustrating for the tournament i cannot question this decison at all

Re: Gaudio out of Brazil Open

I think he should tank in the third round, to let the brasil fans at least enjoy him a couple of matches

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.
