Gaudio vs Verdasco in Kitzbühel final ?

So who will win the final in the mountains of Austria? It'll be best of 5 as long as it doesn't have danger of huge rain delays.

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".

Gaudio will. The clay court game is becoming so boring and predictable with the same two players winning every tournament they enter, so I hope Verdasco wins this one.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Yes, it's so predictable, even worse than grass.

I think Gaston in straight sets. But hey, I'm good tonight so maybe in 4, just leave 1 set to Nando!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

I say Gaudio...in 3

Re: Gaudio vs Verdasco in Kitzbühel final ?

With all these people thinking Gaudio is going to win in straight sets, the likelihood of it happening remains even less so.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Gaudio vs Verdasco in Kitzbühel final ?

In theory Gaudio should be too consistent for Verdasco over five sets, but you never know with these two; they may have completely different games, but neither is renowned as a pillar of mental stability. Verdasco can only do better than he did in last year's semis, that's for sure. I do hope Gaudio takes the title after reaching the final for a second straight year, it would be another feather in his claycourt cap. I remember his good showings in Gstaad and Kitzbuhel back in 2002, reaching the final and semi-final respectively and getting drubbed by Corretja both times; in the latter match he kept trying these feeble dropshots in the second set that went straight into the net, but those were the last glory days of Corretja.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Verdasco won't be as bad as he was in that semi in 04. The thing is with Verdasco he is just as liable to blast a set of unbelievable winners and I think he will get a set.

I was there live in 2002 and Corretja always knew how to play Gaudio and that was hard watching that match, but Gaudio likes the altitude and his name would look good there along with names such as Corretja, Costa, Berasategui, Muster and even Dewulf.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I don't think Verdasco should be underrated that is all.
