Don't worry about the distance, it's worse for me and I won't have any chance to see it in France, so....

I believe it's being televised by ESPN+ which is no good for us here in Europe, - but guess you will be able to see that Vale. And wow - you are so lucky living in Patagonia - it's so beautiful there

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Very nice lineup, lets hope they are all fit to play (and do attend the event). Hopefully someone is able to supply matches on dvd

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Here's the translation of a short article published in L'Equipe Magazine yesterday.

The other Paris of Gaudio

From the east to the west, Paris shows too many different faces that so far, only one player has managed to win both RG and Berçy, Andre Agassi. Yesterday, Gaston Gaudio has been added to the long list of French Open winners unable to stand out from the rest at the POBP.
For the Argentinean, the post RG time has not been that glorious. Right after the triumph of his life, he had reached and lost 3 finals in a row, Bastad, Stuttgart and Kitzbuhel. What's new since then? He has only won 2 matches in more than 3 months. This wretched shame can be explained by tiredness and his going through personal hard times. His father has indeed had another heart attack, from which he has not totally recovered so far. His mother too had to deal with health troubles. Anyway, it's not been a great time for the Argentinean, though he's been so happy to walk upon the parisian ground, may it be Taraflex. "I knew that the Berçy surface would not suit me" he said after his 3 sets defeat against Feliciano Lopez. " But I went back once to RG to train (indoor), and it's been such an incredible feeling to do so. I couldn't tread the Center Court underfoot but it was the same. Well, almost the same. This time, the stands were empty." Yesterday, after his loss, Gaudio has left Berçy to go back to RG a last time before leaving the capital for good. Just to pose for the picture and to get heartened again, before next year in may 2005.

That's it. Nothing really new except his mother's health trouble. Don't know where they got this info.

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Thanks Choupi for translating the article I was only in Paris for a couple of days this year (on my way home from Basel) - I saw Gaston a couple of times, but didn't see his match against Lopez because I had to be back home by then

Re: Gaston News & Articles

At least Rosie, you were in Paris....I wasn't!

Maybe we'll meet there next year either for RG or for Berçy!

That would be nice. I am always in RG (at least for the first week), and usually in Bercy for the whole week too. However, - this year I spent 3 weeks away in Vienna, Madrid and Basel prior to Bercy, so when David withdrew from Bercy I just felt it was the right time to come back home, go back to work and start earning some money again for my next trips!

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Choupi, thanks for that translation! Here in Argentina I read in another forum that his mother had suffered a peak of high blood pressure and had been hospitalized at the same time as his father. I never saw it confirmed officially, but I think it's true. What an awful time he must have gone through!

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Yes Vale, he must have gone through very difficult times...I didn't know if the info on his mother was confirmed. I was a bit wondering where they got it as I had never read or heard about it before. Poor Gaston, he really must have lived sthg so hard. It's always hard when illness strikes close to you and it is even more when it comes to your parents. I know what I'm talking about, I lost my mum from cancer. I was a little youger than Gaston. So I can perfectly understand all his worrying and the reasons which have kept him away from the courts for so long. I'd really love to see him have a good thrill in Houston, mostly to prove the "unbelieving ones" that he's strong enough to have dealt with serious personal trouble as well as with getting fit for the Masters Cup.

Rosie, I'll be in RG the 1st week too. Still don't know exactly when, either the friday or the weekend. Depends on a friend's possibility to come with and on the kindness of my boss! But sure, I'll be there!

Look forward to it And by the way - just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear about your Mum. I also lost my Mum when I was younger than Gaston, so I know what it is like to suffer in that way. I know he likes to keep things like this private and within the family and close friends, which is why it has not been mentioned here much before, and I can totally understand that.

Take care,

Love,

Rosie

Thank you Rosie for your kind msg. I'm sincerely touched. And of course I can totally understand that this should remain private for Gaston. Though knowing it now helps to see things differently.

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Choupi, I'm really sorry too [also to Rosie]. I wouldn't know what to do if I lost one of my parents. My mom had to go through a tough time once but thank God she's perfect now. I understand too why Gaston like to keep this things private, I mean it's hard to talk about those issues.

Now about that article [sorry for the sudden change of subject], Choupi, could you show us by any chance that picture they mention at the article, that he got taken when he practiced at RG? I looked for it at l'equipe's website but couldn't find it .

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Thanks for the translations and of course it's understandable that Gaston wants to keep things private when it concerns his family.

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".

Adri, I'm sorry but I can't help on this coz the pic they mentioned was not taken by them. I think it must have been some official shooting but I still don't know where it's gonna be published. I'll let you know as soon as I get the info.
And thanks for my Mum...
