Guga didn't even try tonight

His serve won him a few games, he won very few rallies. sluiter just played it safe and waited for the inevitable error. towards the end of the match, guga was just flailing at returns. he really didn't care about losing

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Re: Guga didn't even try tonight

I personally wish Guga would retire. I don't like seeing former champions struggling, to this degree, to keep playing.

I hope he makes a decision soon.

Re: Guga didn't even try tonight

I won't call for his retirement until after RG, even if it's terrible to watch one of the game's best-loved players struggle this much. When he does retire, I hope he plays exhibitions and charity events. He could still do so much for the sport.

Re: Guga didn't even try tonight

Good job by Sluiter! On the way back to the top 100..Wonder what he can do vs Hewitt....

And did Kuerten always have such a good serve?
Don't remember him hitting as many aces in the past? And he actually seemed to have the record for most aces in matches etc...

Re: Guga didn't even try tonight

He is a laughing stock. He needs to retire, something he should have done years ago.

Re: Guga didn't even try tonight

Don't count out Sluiter. On his day he can still beat a lot of people, especially when his serve is working like last night.

I think he will also beat Hewitt.

Re: Guga didn't even try tonight

He has lost to Boris Pashanski, Oscar Hernandez, Albert Montanes, Gorka Fraile, Flavio Saretta, Jan Hernych, Andreas Seppi and now Raemon Sluiter. If that ain't enough reason for him retiring, I don't know what is.

Tournaments should stopping wasting wildcards on this washed up clown.
