What was Gaston thinking? Take a look

http://artsweb.uwaterloo.ca/~jdu/fil...%20tweener.wmv He had an easy forehand winner but decides he wants to do something special and really screws it up. This was in the 2nd set while he was only a break behind.

Re: What was Gaston thinking? Take a look

I'm telling you, Andre said later it was stupid to make that shot in such situation, and Gaudio said that he "made it cuz he wanted to, if you make it they say 'you're a star', if you miss it 'you are a jerk'"

Both of them are right IMO

Thanks for the video

Re: What was Gaston thinking? Take a look

thats Gaudio, take it or leave it.

He did the same thing in the AO against Hrbaty and won the point.

It might not be the most effective play... but I like it anyway

Re: What was Gaston thinking? Take a look

i liked Cliffy's comment afterwards: "come on! that's why you get the big bucks!"

talk about a stupid decision at a stupid time.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

It's good, but not the best, IMO! I had worked under a few graduates from that school many, many years ago.

Re: What was Gaston thinking? Take a look

It was a silly shot, but that's just how Gaston is.. As he said, he did it because he wanted to do it, and that is cause he really wants to enjoy while he plays, stupid but if it turned good, very entertaining!
