(WC) Guccione d. (1) Ferrero 6-3, 7-6

Apparently this Australian Chris Guccione served brilliantly. Despite some chances, Ferrero was never able to break his opponent's serve. And, of course, Ferrero sucks in tiebreaks, so... Need I mention this is his 7th straight loss on the ATP level since winning Madrid? Maybe he can be confident going into the Aussie Open due to his exhibition win?! No, probably not. But Juan Carlos entered US Open playing shitty tennis and that didn't stop him from making the finals.

Re: (WC) Guccione d. (1) Ferrero 6-3, 7-6

Just shows again how much depths there are in men's tennis now which is why I can never vote for those polls of who's the best, who'll be no.1 etc...it's so unpredictable but that's also what makes it so fun and interesting to watch.

And I hope this doesn't hurt too much on Ferrero's confidence going into AO. He did win the exhibition over Roger after all.

JC is always a slow starter. Surprising but again doesn't mean anything when it comes to the 1st slam.

I'm not too worried.

I'll be worried when he loses his 8th in a row, to Richard Gasquet in Australia

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Nah, there's much worse. Like Rafael Nadal, for example.

I'll have you know that Rafael Nadal is the fucking man! And is currently on his way to sending Schalken to Melbourne

No, Ferrero could lose to someone like Burgie aka Lars Burgsmuller.

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".

Re: (WC) Guccione d. (1) Ferrero 6-3, 7-6

This is a big upset. To me, it seems that Guccione is doing very well the last few weeks. Hopefully, Ferrero will do well in Melbourne. I think he can and should defeat Gasquet. Quite some big upsets these last few weeks. I agree with Isy; there is a lot of depth in men's tennis.

well whoever does well in addidas usually do not do well in ausopen...all the past winners except sampras maybe (if im not wrong he won only 2 ausopen title in 94 where he won addidas also n in 97) have never done well in ausopen...we can take comfort in this....n also tts the reason probably why agassi went on to win so many ausopen titles...cos he never won adidas open......

I don't think it means anything except JC had an off day, but wow what a good result for Guccione. Should boost his confidence no end!

I watched the game before they decided to flip to that shitty game show "wheel of fortune" midway through the second set. Ferrero struggled to win a point on Guccione's serve. In fact, he struggled to get a racquet on Guccione's serve. This kid could be a real prospect for Wimbeldon. Serves and volleys very well.

Guccione was finalist in both junior's singles and doubles in Wimbly 2003.

What to believe in, it's impossible to say?
What to believe in when they change your name, wash your brain, play the game again, yeah, yeah, yeah...

i don't know if u guys notice but somehow ferrero always don't do well when he meets the opponent for the 1st time on his least favourite grounds n this opponent is usually some big server or serve n volleyer....but after the 2nd meeting...he will do better against them...what do u guys think???

Just pure bad luck that JC got drawn against such a brilliant server... he didn't really play horrible or anything, just never been able to return Guiccione's serve.
