I am not sure if they will practice on the morning of their match together. Maybe he will train with Canas or Henman.

Re: Gaston News & Articles

He trained with Federer on Saturday, and was beating him 5-2 when Roger called it quits. Could it be an omen?
Merde, Gaston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Gaston News & Articles

I, too, believe in signs. Actually, at RG2004, I had several signs
- or maybe I should call it a gut feeling -
which told me that Gaston would be raising the Cup.....

Houston interview scripts:
http://www.asapsports.com/tennis/04houston.html


From the interviews:

Q. Gaudio, do you think his experience maybe can come into play a little bit?

LLEYTON HEWITT: Yeah, maybe a little bit. This is obviously a huge week for him, Gaston. Coming here, not being in this situation before, first time in the Top 10 for him, and to be here in the Masters Cup is probably just a dream in itself for him. So, yeah, he's going out there, though, with absolutely nothing to lose. We all know this isn't his favorite surface; obviously, clay is. But he's going to be a tough competitor. He's got nothing to lose out there. You got to go out there and just worry about your game and try and get the wins on the board.

==========================================

Q. What is your opinion on the Argentine tennis players?

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, there's many of them. There's many, many of them. Some very good ones as well. So we have one in the draw, right, and one alternate?

Q. Two in the draw.

ROGER FEDERER: Oh, Gaston Gaudio. Two in the draw and one alternate, sorry. It just shows how strong it really is. Tennis in Argentina right now, they have basically three or four Davis Cup teams. I know Coria and Nalbandian, these guys from Juniors still. There's a lot of players then when I came on tour. It's really amazing to see how well they can play on all the surfaces now. It's not only the clay that is their favorite surface, but especially on the hard courts they are starting to play better and better.


Wonder if Federer realizes by now that he is going to play Gaston in his first match.....

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Roger forgetting Gaston,well he may but pull your nose tonight .....gosh, they really dont concider Gaston a threat , how nice, this way they'll be even more shocked when he wins
its nice Roger recognizes the strength of the argentine tennis tho, I really just hope Gato will make them respect it even more and on hard courts after the MC.

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Isn't it odd that he forgot him, as Gaston was winning 5-2 in the practice set they played on Saturday, before Federer called it a day? (That's in today's newspaper La Nacion, one of the most serious in Argentina)

Re: Gaston News & Articles

It's such a shame about this damn rain just when I had settled down to enjoy the match - and interrupting Gaston's serve too

Re: Gaston News & Articles

Hi guys..........thought you might like to know that Gaston is going to play in the Kooyong Exhibition tournament next year as part of his warm-up for the Australian Open. The other players taking part are David Nalbandian (who is the holder of the title), Agassi, Federer, Roddick, Srichaphan, Henman and Massu. David really loved this tourney last year - hope Gaston enjoys it too
