#Is Chris GUCCIONE`s career going anywhere?? Can he step it up & become Top-20~50??


This is for the Aussie fans out there
Do you think our lanky mate Guccione can really do any damage on the ATP tour & even win titles or is he destined to be a journeyman hovering outside the Top #100

Chris recently won two challenger titles on South American clay [Columbia & Ecuador]~>> also he`s won some big matches for AUS in the Davis Cup this year & he`s beaten Ferrero twice... The win at the challenger in Columbia was impressive as he took out Canas in the final

Below I`ve pasted his playing activity for 2006~ for anyone who`s curious about Guccione`s progress

Not a bad guy, he will have the odd big win, but not likely.

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".

Top 50? Unlikely, but surely he'll have a better career than Todd Reid, who was painted as the next big thing to come from Australia before him.

Nick Lindahl is the next hope for a top 50 Aussie it seems.

Don`t suppose you were involved in all those Mafia murders in Chappel St a couple of year back?? I thought you may have known somebody who knew somebody who got shot by somebody driving a red Ferrari

Anyway if it`s good enough for the Poo Scud Dud then I guess it`s good enought for Xristos

BTW,~ I once went out with a cute tennis bunny Italian gal from Chappel St myself.. she told me she wanted to be the next Jelena Dokic

Alrighty then~ if our paths cross maybe we should share a pizza at Dominos, then I can get to know that hot gal of yours a little better

Actually it`s unlikely to happen anytime soon though~ since I`m living in Fukuoka->> before you take the piss it`s not meant to be a swear word
