Gaston Gaudio's cowardly behavior.

Obviously Guillermo Coria would take the cake as most disliked on tour, but Gaston would have to take the main prize for least respectable sportsman. Why is he always tanking ? It's so dumb, since this nobody appeared out of the clear blue skies he's walking around like he can only show up at Slams or Master Series events, remember his little tank against Monfils a few weeks ago ? He's made no effort whatsoever to hide the fact that he's a quitter, a punk and a thief; merely making appearances to tournaments to rob the tournament blind of their appearance money and then bail out if he loses the first set.

This goes against everything an athlete stands for, he is a quitter, plain and simple. Coria created this monster, if Guillermo didn't have such terrible karma, no one would even know who Gaston Gaudio is. Remember the face of Gaudio after stealing Roland Garros ? And I do mean stealing. That trophy should be in Coria's living room, play that match 60 more times and Guillermo would win 59 of them. Gaston was nearly doing leaps into the crowd, high fiving everyone at courtside and thanking them for their support.

Now, we have a punk that tanks on a daily basis and is majorly delusional, feeling like the only time he should put forth effort is at a "real" event or clay events. It's sad that he doesn't even make an effort to prove himself outside of clay.

Oh and by the way, Gaston, how was Wimbledon, the most prestigious tournament in your sport ? Oh, that's right! You didn't even bother showing up. Don't worry, you're not alone when it comes to clay courters that throw in the towel when it comes to playing on grass. Muster did it too.

All of the Argentines seem to have no quit in them and to be steady hard-workers, even Nalbandian, the laziest underachiever (of argentines) on a bad day gives more effort than Gaston. Gaudio is not only a disgrace to tennis, sportsmanship, but one to his country as well.

Him being in Shanghai shows how much of a joke this event truly has turned into with all the withdraws.

Gaston didn't "tank" today.

Who would be foolish enough to tank at an event like this ? Each match is worth $120,000, surely you would have to be on some awfully powerful drugs to throw a match and the complaint that I registered had to do with his lack of performance outside of clay, especially when it comes to events that aren't Slams or Masters events and his skipping an entire Grand Slam because it didn't suit his game. That's cowardly.

Re: Gaston Gaudio's cowardly behavior.



If he wins against Federer tomorrow, then I dance on your grave.

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.

IF he wins tomorrow, can you imagine what'll happen? Federer's winning streak 1) ended by Gaudio 2) on indoor carpet

Actually yes. He did just lose a 6-1 set to Coria on the same surface.

Re: Gaston Gaudio's cowardly behavior.

You know, I will still root for Roger, but I couldn't imagine a better opponent to end his winning streak. The thing is, virtually everyone else on MTF can imagine about a hundred better opponents in their eyes, so the reactions will be funny, especially that of the Italian gobshite who started this thread.

Attention isn't something I'm deprived of, especially on this board, I can assure you this isn't a plea for it. Simply because you don't agree with what someone posts, doesn't make it garbage.

Re: Gaston Gaudio's cowardly behavior.

But if enough people unite in condemnation of a particular thing or person, can it be objectively identified as garbage? I know that tyranny of the majority is one of the vagaries of a democracy, but I would make a special exception in your case.

I agree, if Rogi has to lose, better it be vs. Gaston, who has pushed him on faster surfaces before, than to some unworthy dork.

Gaston is looking quite determined. [and btw David is peaking at the right time too]

I'm a troll for pointing out the fact that I can name atleast 3 occasions where it has been obvious Gaston tanked ?

ESPN commentators must be trolls too, in that case.

I'm a troll for pointing out the fact that he skipped out of Wimbledon, because he knew his game didn't suit the surface ?

I'm a troll for calling his Roland Garros a fluke ? Funny, he didn't sniff a GS title this season. Didn't even come close.

Everything in my post was factual, enough of this "troll" non-sense, it is one thing to disagree, but labeling someone a troll because of it is senseless and not only unoriginal, but truly shows how far your imagination must stretch ... or not.
