So i personally put them in the Slam Purgatory, they're better than the Moya's, Kraijcek's, and Costa's of the world, but as far as others are concerned, the "one slam stigma" will never die in their minds. Marat Safin got off the Slam Purgatory after the OZ win in January.
I don't care what anyone thinks, but Gaudio won't get off the one slam wonder until he makes a Grand Slam final that's not in Roland Garros
Are you saying Gaudio is expected to reach a slam final other than RG?
