Gaudio should be hanged for losing an exhibition match.

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".

Sounds like it was fun.

If only it had been the Denthead standing in Gaudio's path during the early rounds of last year's RG, eh? Instead, poor Guille had to cope with the physically draining challenge of all those serve-volleyers.

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.

Long gone are the days when people could claim gaudio's crappiness on pressure.
He can't beat a D-grade plyer like Taylor in an exhibition match.

The verdict is in, Gaudio sucks.

According to Gastón, he was happy he was able to move before the ball hit him in his body I got to see him live, and he had a very powerful serve indeed, even if it was an exhibition

He won 7 games which is a vast improvement on the Masters Cup. It is good to see him going in the right direction. However, although he maybe ranked 5-10 on clay on the other 4 surface rebound ace, grass, decorurf and carpet I would find it hard to classify him better than 20-30. He has still not convinced me that he is a top 10 player except on clay.

And since when have exhibition matches counted for anything? Come on you have been around long enough to know that or is that a utopian idea.

Re: Vilas CUP:Dent def. Gaudio 6/2 7/5

I went to the Vilas cup the 3 days, It was a great tennis exhibition....I´m not gonna say the obvios things about the argies....
I just want to say that I was surprised by Dent level...I really enjoyed watching him play, and that I´m gonna actually cheer for him from now on...except against argies...

he seems like a great guy on court, he was having fun, interacting with the audicience....and even on monday when he lost to Nalbandian he was still laughing and playing with the crowd.....
I know its an exhibition, but I liked his attitude....
