Gaudio King of the Mountain defeats Verdasco 2-6 6-2 6-4 6-4 to win Kitzbhüel title

First of all congrats to Verdasco for an outstanding week and showing some good form to match the talent that is clearly there.

Well done Gaston for being the first man since Corretja in 2002 to win the Gstaad and Kitzbhüel titles at altitude.

Good to see that his finals record is improving and the good performance in last weeks final against Nadal, has been a successful 3 weeks, now please withdraw from Sopot.

It wouldn't be Gaudio if he did it the easy way would it, leading 5-2 in the 4th, blowing 8 match points but he won.

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".

Kudos to Verdasco, hopefully he can build from his performance during the week and move onto better things for the year.

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

The Argentines love this event. Vilas won it 4 times, Coria, de la Peña and Gaudio have now won it.

I am happy for both guys and now Gaston should rest and Verdasco come on show some more of the obvious talent.

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

Good match. Now, where the hell is my money?

Verdasco even gave some balls to Gastón when the line judges called them out. And they were in complicated moments too. It was a nice match to watch

Re: Gaudio King of the Mountain defeats Verdasco 2-6 6-2 6-4 6-4 to win Kitzbhüel title

Well, now it's a good time to remember all that writing and talking about the "one hit wonder" after RG 2004 (including the champ of them all: that dumb TV guy from Chile that wanted to bet his house or sth on Gaston going back to 40th rank after RG 05)...

Since that moment, Gaston has picked up 5 titles and 4 more finals, established himself as perennial Top 3-4 in clay and is right back at Top Ten without the 1000 points...

Kudos to him...

Thanks that's good to hear and I don't think either of these guys are bad in that regard.

Re: Gaudio King of the Mountain defeats Verdasco 2-6 6-2 6-4 6-4 to win Kitzbhüel title

Yes, it has been a good season for Gaudio, the only thing that was disappointing was his RG loss and the TMS performances on clay, but other than this has been a good comeback season and I wonder if that Chilean guy has lost his house yet.

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

He's the player with most titles this year, after Federer and Nadal. Not bad at all!

Well, it's a good thing the TV guy didn't bet his house; he'd be living in the forest had he gone through it.

That was great

Did anyone see this?
A little girl (only 5 years old I think) said to Verdasco into the microphone "For me you are the best" ... that was soo cute ... imagine that ... she said it slowly and so sweet ... I had tears in my eyes ... aaah that was so and then she got a kiss from Verdasco
