Re: Cristophe ROCHUS defeated GAUDIO. 2-6 7-5 6-3

Unbelievable match. Christophe started out so badly, it was like 0-4 within 10 or 15 minutes, then he just turned it around. He outsmarted and out-hit Gaston. Just GREAT fighting. You could almost see his nerves and he fought through it and hit great shots when he needed to and just drove Gaston nuts. Just great!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Cristophe ROCHUS defeated GAUDIO. 2-6 7-5 6-3

i didn't watch this match bec i was studying but also bec i expected Gaudio to just thrash him 6-0 6-1.

thank goodness for repeats -- i'm gonna watch this match later. congrats to the short guy

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)

Christophe played very well... Gaudio was very frustrated throughout the match.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Cristophe ROCHUS defeated GAUDIO. 2-6 7-5 6-3

gaudio is a very much better claycourter player than rochus. it is clear rochus played well and solid but gaston shouldve won.
he wasted the chance of his life to reach hs first master series final.

Re: Cristophe ROCHUS defeated GAUDIO. 2-6 7-5 6-3

he's about 5'7, Ryan. Taller than Ollie but similar playing style and heart and fight.

TC, definitely catch the repeat, it was a LOT of fun.

Re: Cristophe ROCHUS defeated GAUDIO. 2-6 7-5 6-3

I am starting to doubt if Gaudio is going to be a serious contender this year at RG. He hasn't played very well this year, but then again its Gaudio he may surprise everyone and do very well.

My great tennis loves-Roger Federer, Paul Henry Mathieu and Marat Safin

So true, I only watched the third set and could see that he was fighting for every point. Almost all games went to deuce and he stepped up at the most important ones (even if he screwed some of them) and deservedly won.

I really liked the way he played - his dropshots and volleys were amazing! Congrats, Cristophe! I hope he defeats Chela.

Gaudio's performance in Montecarlo, Rome and Hamburg was extremely dissapointing, to say the least.
