I just have to shake my head at Gaudio sometimes. GAUDIO OUT OF VIENNA

Melzer defeats Gaudio 6:7, 6:3, 7:6



I thought he had this wrapped up, but..................... Gaudio is so talented, but when things go bad for him, sometimes, he just gives up. I just don't understand that thinking from him.

He never has things wrapped up until he wins the final point. Someone pointed out that he has been bagelled 19 times in the past 5 years? He has also lost 6 games in a row at various points in sets anyway...just look at the Ferrer match at the French.

I can't believe Gaudio lost this match. He had it in the third set and just, I don't know. He actually served for the match. Maybe he just lost concentration?

My point exactly. I just don't understand what goes through his mind sometimes. He is very talented, but.............

Gaudio lost the concentration when he was serving to win the match with 30-30 and Gaston hit a backhand winner but according to the umpire the ball was out and Gaudio protested a lot and after Melzer broke ,Gaston lost his temper destroying a racket ( poor racket ) etc...

Gaudio made his usual show

Re: I just have to shake my head at Gaudio sometimes. GAUDIO OUT OF VIENNA

Yes, I think Gaudio was cheated on that very important point which decided about break point Melzer or match point Gaudio. During Melzer's interview on TV, if you "read" between the lines, I think Jürgen himself admitted that also. I don't know how to call it in English, but in German we have a term for that kind of decisions: Konzessionsentscheidung. They are made when an umpire retrospectively has the feeling that s/he made a wrong decision against player A and then "tries" to balance out that mistake by making a controversial/wrong call against player B.

And maybe this happened in this case. Having no detailled replay it's hard to judge if the balls was in or out, but it looked more "in" than out for me also. And it came by the same line judge that made a few games before a very close -and probably also wrong- decision against Melzer.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

I was watching the match and saw that. I think he just made number one in the Best Racquet Throw of 2005 contest.

The Austrian commentator was saying: "You really need lots of rage to abuse a racket to look like that"

I don't critisize him for that reaction at all.

We would call that a "make-up" call, but I think I'm going to be using your term from now on.
