Re: Fernando Gonzalez

Lacks consistency and tends to lose the pressure points.

It's really that simple.

Re: Fernando Gonzalez

For some reason I though the post was going to say " Is a Sexy Beast!"

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

He is a sexy beast.

I love the guy - I love how hard he's fought to qualify for the TMC when others like Baghdatis are all "oh I'm sick of it".

We need a couple more like Fernando.

Re: Fernando Gonzalez

It's a shame he has such a terrible record against Fed- I'd really love to see Gonzo win one. After watching him play a bunch of times, it seems like he could stand to construct points a little better than he does. He's a great player and it's nearly impossible not to root for him, but his hyper-blast mode is clearly not always the answer.

Re: Fernando Gonzalez

Fed it's two, three steps above the other players, maybe Gonzalez play good, but Federer is like a machine, he plays with an amazing facility, he doesn't fail, and if he does, it's in a while that it doesn't influence.

Gonzo can put in troubles to many players, Nalbi, Roddick, Ljubo and others... but Federer, it's Federer.

andy RODDICK : fernando GONZÁLEZ : gilles SIMON
nicolás MASSÚ : mario ANČIĆ
philipp KOHLSCHREIBER : andy MURRAY : pimpim JOHANSSON

Yes, he's playing with his heart !! He's also very tired (not only Roger) at the moment, but he's still fighting and want to go to Shanghai and I really hope that he'll be rewarded because he deserves it !! Big heart and big generosity on the court !!!

Re: Fernando Gonzalez

Yeah I'm cheering for him...losing three finals in a row is tough but getting to the master's cup wil help erase those disapointments. Good luck!

Re: Fernando Gonzalez

The Gonzo's play style is very comfortable to Federer. The Swiss has some problems with players who take less risk than Gonzalez, since Roger has a great defense that allows him to resist all missiles, and quickly revert the attack in lethal form.
