the more i realise just how much talent he has. the timing of this might be strange after he just surrendered tamely to agassi, but ability wise i dont think he is far off andre. he can make the game look as easy as the likes of safin, federer and rios at times. he just needs an agassi or connors like refusal to lose and his career would go from strength to strength. but without that, he wont progress much further i dont think.
either way, he has still earned more money than we ever will, has won a slam and is now a regular in the top 10. not bad i'd say....
I love Gaston's one-handed backhand and his matches with Andre have always been very physical, competitive, and fun to watch. I'd love to see these two play on clay.
"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh.

The results have shown."
