I have saved this week stickly for tennis!!! This has been my first clay court event to watch. There is so much more action and play.
I watched the Gaston Gaudio match last night and thought WOW the crowd really loves him ALOT. They were with him on every single point. There were times where you could see the excitement on his face, and then times where he yelled ¨por qué¨ and broke a raquet
There was a lady sitting in front of me and could not watch. She and everyone there wanted him to win so bad. His shots were unbelievable, but you could still feel the mental lackness, which has everything to do with Gaston´s game
It was so disappointing to watch him loose, and I think even more disappointing for himself. But he gave it a shot and hopefuuly something will come of it
Well that's Gaston he is able to garner some extreme reactions, when they boo him, they boo him hard, but when they embrace him, it's done with a lot of warmth.
Of course it would have been great if he had won, but alas it was not to be, he isn't playing on the Challenger circuit, it's a higher level. The mental is the biggest part of the game, it's a good beginning, but there is a very long way to go on this journey, and he has to be coming back to tennis for the right reasons, if he does that, then he can achieve whatever his goals are.
Like I said, there are plenty of good matches to watch and individuals, so keep having fun.
