Re: Gaston vs. Hewitt RG 2004 special treat

It's somehow risky to label some people as jerks and let others off the hook.

Re: Gaston vs. Hewitt RG 2004 special treat

I don't easily label someone a jerk, Getta This only happens if I see things I don't like at all several times, so it's not like they don't get a chance. And I'm not afraid to admit it if they prove me wrong afterwards (which in this case hasn't happened yet )

Re: Gaston vs. Hewitt RG 2004 special treat

I am not sure, as per usual, but, i think Getta may have been referring to Lleyton Hewitt calling all australian tennis fans jerks - because, they are jerks and it was better for Lleyton to label them all jerks because australian tennis fans are in fact, jerks... No one should miss out on such a label... Lleyton treats all his countrymen the with the same beating stick of equality...

and... for that... i will label Lleyton as harsh... harsh... but fair...

Re: Gaston vs. Hewitt RG 2004 special treat

Hewitt always had respect for Gaudio, too bad I can't find their match from Barcelona where Gaston gave him a beatdown when Hewitt was #1.

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".

Re: Gaston vs. Hewitt RG 2004 special treat

Thanks a lot for this, AJ! Never really got the chance to see the match, at that day I was a 13 year old kid and about tennis I knew probably as much as that it's played with a yellow ball.

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Re: Gaston vs. Hewitt RG 2004 special treat

Glad you are able to appreciate it now, it was just a lesson in claycourt tennis.

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".
