Gato not playing Wimbledon, yes grass is for the cows and playing football

It's good that he is playing there, I wonder what level of respect will they show for the French Open Champ?

Anyway, vamos Gaston, if he could win a match it would be cool.

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".

Gaudio's entry ranking should be in top 10, right? Wimbleton can't push him out of top 16, can they?

They will do their best, don't worry about that. He will probably be #16th.

I don't think Gaudio will be bothered and I doubt his chance in Wimbleton. I still cringe everytime I watch him serve.

btw, I watched his match vs Nalbandian again last night. Unfortunately, technical error ruined my tape for his final vs Coria.

I hope Gato just enjoy it. Don't put much pressure on himself.

Re: Gato at Wimbledon: Grass is for the cows and playing football

There s not be any pressure on nuestro Gato at Wimby so he s just go and play. I have NO idea how he's done there... what's his history, if any?

The only match he has won at Wimbledon was against Guzman in 2002 and he lost to Youzhny in 5 sets in the next round and he has lost to Canas in 5 sets there as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Gato at Wimbledon: Grass is for the cows and playing football

Hopefully they show him on the grass, I think it would be funny if he won a match or 2 matches would be even better.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Gato at Wimbledon: Grass is for the cows and playing football

I just read in David's forum that David and Gato will probably play in an exhibition next wednesday, any news on that?

Re: Gato at Wimbledon: Grass is for the cows and playing football

George, he's better than Guille on grass then.

W that be Stoke Poges, Chelsea?? Boodle and Dunthorne exo?? Is Nalby well enough to play? Where is he anyway? In ARG or floating around Europe somewhere [well, not exactly floating... more like bobbing or trundling along or sth like that]?

Nalle is in Barcelona at the moment. I think Gato is still in Argentina and probably won't be back until the middle of next week in Europe.

I am not sure where they will play, if they play that is.

Hi RogiFan, I have no idea where the exhibition is either. Wish I know spanish David is still recovering, but will most likely play Wimbledon.

Re: Gato at Wimbledon: Grass is for the cows and playing football

Did you see sth in an article I posted or sth more recent, Chelsea? I haven't even had time to catch up on all those articles I posted... how silly is that?!

Nalby often goes to Barca, doesn't he? For medical treatment, etc. He isn't a friend of Carlos is he? That's where Carlos probably is now, practising on grass... not sure where exactly... maybe at CAR.

Re: Gato at Wimbledon: Grass is for the cows and playing football

Nalle is in Barcelona for treatment, well the same doc looked after Guga and Moya, and he likes the city that's why he is there.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I haven't read anything in an article, I read about it in Nalbandian's forum here on MTF. jazz_girl said she got the news from Clarin, so ...

I tried to read the spanish articles with the help of translation sites, but it was too hard for me to understand, so I gave up

The exhibition is called THE BOODLE & DUNTHORNE CHAMPIONS CHALLENGE. Moya and Nalbandian are some the players mentioned on their website, but I didn't see Gato's name there.

So you posted the articles for others to read even while you don't have time to read them That was nice of you, RogiFan
