No thread? Patience def. Gaudio 6-2 6-2

I'm surprised people aren't shocked by this.

Don't worry Teh, had Schuettler been mentally stronger today then I can assure you your beloved wunderkind would officially suck as well. I was thinking of starting a thread on this and the Volandri defeat, which was just as shocking, but thought I'd already done one tonight.

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.

When was he ever the king of clay? He did, on the other hand, make TMS QFs on three different surfaces last year plus TMC semis, a sign of reasonable surface versatility.

Not shocked, he does have the tendancy to lose total focus and on clay that is a very dangerous mix.

King of clay? Since when, it's not like he has ever been the best of his generation in his surface. Don't use facts like the ones above, it confuses too many people.

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".

Those are pretty good credentials, but if Nadal is the true king of clay, which he obviously is, then everyone else are petty nobles at best.

Re: No thread? Patience def. Gaudio 6-2 6-2

It's the curse of Brasil Open. All Brasilian players are gone after two rounds and so as 4 top seeds. Although JCF lost in first round, the score is still a little respectful.

Today, #1 seed Gaudio won 4 games, #3 seed Volandri won 1 game and #4 seed Serra won 2 games.

Re: No thread? Patience def. Gaudio 6-2 6-2

gee thanks for giving olivier some credit here

this is only the second time he's ever reached a quarterfinal, so it's still big for him, even if it's not for anyone else

Thumbs down Re: No thread? Patience def. Gaudio 6-2 6-2

It's funny when I didn't bet against Gaston,he lost the match!
As a top clay player,this result is just pathetic!

Re: No thread? Patience def. Gaudio 6-2 6-2

for Gaston. He's been out with a bad shoulder and players aren't usually in top form their first tournie back. And the weather conditions were very hot and humid and some players have a harder time with that than others. I'm not counting Gaston out yet-he'll have better results in the near future. to Gaston and his fans.
