No surprise, Gonzo is in terrific form as shown from his last match.

Today he made 47 winners and only 6 UEs. Not from this planet. Steam is coming out of his ears.

Gonzo's really flying under the radar at this grand slam. With that explosive forehand and some great serving today, he's made it to the 2nd week. Chile must be very proud right now.

Thanks for the vCash, Feña!

Re: PIMPIM Loses to Grass God Gonzalez 6-4 6-4 6-2

Seriously, I have always thought that grass ought to be the surface for Gonzalez. He is a hit-and-miss player. He is as much of a hit-and-miss player as it gets. Psychologically, it should be a very fitting surface for him - unlike clay or hard, all he has to do is hitting his high-risk shots - wherever they go - in or out - on grass they are not coming back.

Everyone can get off of the Pim Pim bandwagon now. He got thrashed at Halle and thrashed here. On the stats sheet, it says his 1st serves were averaging only 114 mph? What was happeing there? Great, great win for Gonzo. He is playing better than anyone right now.

He played an awesome match, if he can sustain this level of play then he could go very far

0 UE in the deciding set.

Just good clean playing from Gonzalez.

Pim was mentally shaken a little after failing to convert one of four break points in the 2nd set game. That would have put him ahead and serving for set.

Hope he comes back strong in the hardcourt/indoor season.

His injuries have been limiting his top 5 potential based primarily on hardcourt/indoor results.

Gonzo can be a good played on any surface when he is playing well, so in some cases maybe could be a :god:

I honestly thought it would be a closer match but Fernando is playing at such a high level right now .

Re: PIMPIM Loses to Grass God Gonzalez 6-4 6-4 6-2

Yeah, I noticed the 114 mph average 1st serve. Pim Pim had a 120 and 123 mph average in his other matches. His 1st serve percentage was 75% today as well, compared to 67% and 66% before. Why wasn't he going for more? Injured?

Re: PIMPIM Loses to Grass God Gonzalez 6-4 6-4 6-2

He probably tried to bomb them in early in the match, but saw that Gonzalez's form was so good, he couldn't withstand the pressure on his second serve, so took something off and went for high first serve % thinking he'd be able to hold more easily since he wasn't getting many aces anyway.

Gonzo...who knew he could kick ass on grass(like my rhyme)...
