Re: Better to die on your feet, than live on your knees, just do your best in Viña
Thank you for all the welcomes :-) I am aware that it may be a bit selfish for me (all of us)
to not want him to retire.... but... we're only humans, right? :-)
And yes, I do want all the best for him, all of the happiness of the world, but I wish if there is this tiny will, small feeling that he shouldn't retire that keeps him up at night... to give it another shot...
Now you may say, yeah, he has been giving it another shots for a few years now, still nothing happend. True.
But, I don't know what you all think, but I would like to hear your opinion on this one: should Gaston change his choach? What do you think?
I mean, I like Franco, he's a nice guy, was very kind to me and my friend while we were in Umag, but... when Gaston started to shout things (during the match vs. Ramirez Hidalgo) about how laim he is, mentioned his mom few times... I hated it that Franco didn't say a thing, acctually, he was laughing. Why he just doesn't tell Gaston: "Shut up and play". Because I think that whenever he starts shouting and talking during his match, he loses the most important thing that you need in tennis: concentration.
I know that Franco knows Gaston for a lifetime, and they are friends, and I am aware that I am writing this "quick reply" from my prespective and don't have a clue about what is acctually going wrong with Gaston, but...I'll dare to say that my opinion is that Gaston, if he wants to come back, needs a firm coach hand, someone who'll he listen and do what he says and be obedien to, and not a friend.
Sorry for my grammar mistakes, and ... yes, I am aware that this is situation with two different sides of the story (retire and life happily ever after - wish him that from the bottom of my heart,btw. try to come back with changing his way of thinking, coach maybe, so some radical changes - and prove to himself that he is a phenomen because he needs to prove nothing to noone and spend a few years in the top ten where he needs to be. There is a possibilty also that he doesn't retire this year, tries for another, anything doesn't cange and he retires in coming years- it's the risk. Aand the decision is his. I am sure he'll make a good one. With all my love for him and his tennis, if he wakes up in the morning and relizes there is no flame inside his heart to do it all - to come back- I'll be the first one to congratulate the man for everything he's done and thank him for all joy his personality and tennis brought in my life.)
This is just so complicated and I get so emotional everytime I think of Gasty-situation that I'll go to sleep now.... :-)
Kisses for everyone
