Gabashvili

Anyone in here seen this guy play ?

I saw him on tv once and he looked like he had one too many Red Bull before the match. Jumping and dancing if he plays well and almost psychotic if he is not.

Is he like that all the time or was that just a one time moment of insanity/happines ?

When they were in Chile, the Russians went golfing:

It looked like bombs were exploding on Normandy beach in there until he came out covered in sand with a bent sand wedge. He was yelling at the ball and chasing it with the club around the field. Pretty funny to watch, actually

Re: Gabashvili

Yes, at the US Open last year against Marcos Daniel in I think the first round. It was the last match and went till porbably around midnight on some outer court. Gabashvili is a bit of headcase but he has some nice strokes and good serve, but I think his problems as he continues to ascend up the rankings may be more mental than anything.

wow! i was at that match too! not many of us stuck around for that one, but glad to know a fellow poster was there... i think you're exactly right, that's what i felt after watching him in flushing

novak djokovic - my all time favorite!
12 GS and counting, and as always, leaving bad tastes in tracy austin's mouth

italian guys - forza azzurri, especially seppi and bolelli

new generation: impress me! looking for a new 2nd favorite

all time favorites: lleyton hewitt, juan carlos ferrero, michael chang and patrick rafter

NEVER say "i don't care who wins, i just want good tennis" you BETTER pick a side
