He lost a match far from the end of the world, it's not like Gaston has lost matches that were harder to lose than to win, it's over and now has to prepare for Davis Cup.

As for the bad court surface, well it's the same for both players and he was good enough to handle it last year, but not today.

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".

Honestly, there isn't any point in getting too pissed off with the result. The thing is he actually needs to do well in the 4 major clay events which he didn't do last season.

It's not hard to check an ISP address and that would sort out any problem, then again he will be getting a Gonzalez forehand to the head, as long as he shows up in Sydney.

But if he´s blowing it in these small events, how's he gonna do well in the big four??

You are so missing the bigger picture, so do you want me to explain it to you?

The simple version is no one really gives a fuck about the smaller events, when for him the real season starts in Monte Carlo, the fact is he made the top 10 not just cause of optional results.

It was results in 3 of the non clay TMS events that helped him to be where he is, but the ranking is really irrelevant and so is this result.

Re: "Back on THE RIGHT Surface, You've got a Title to Defend" Cheering Thread

George, your approach is totally correct from a pragmatic standpoint, but I believe that there are other aspects that have nothing to do with the importance of the event or the points necessary to maintain a ranking position. I am referring to pride and prestige. I will always support Gaston, but it really makes me sad when he blows chances against rivals who cannot even compare to him.

Big fan of Gastón Gaudio, the best !!!

HI GWH, 100% agree.

By the way, in don't remember where, but I read Gastón declarations, saying that the return to clay had cost him to much, because there was long time ago which he did not play in that surface, and that he had felt without speed

I tend to agree, Florencia. I´m not the typical tennis fan because I give so much importance to the human side of success or defeat. In this case, I imagine Gastón travelled to Viña as if he was going to a party - the returning champion, seeded #1, an easy tournament, a beautiful seaside resort, admiring gf by his side - and suddenly the harsh unpredictability of sport threw it all back in his face. I hate to think about how he must have felt, but hopefully he has developped a thicker skin through the years, and he knows his worth as a person apart from his job and doesn´t rely on tennis results to define him.

A friend in the Yahoo group pointed out that it´s almost two years (since Estoril 2004?) since he lost to "just nobody" in a small tournament on a clay court, so he´s been pretty consistent, really.

Now he has more time to get back in his stride on clay and I hope he´ll be practising soon with Mancini. Calleri is through to semis playing doubles in Viña so he´ll arrive later.

VAMOS GASTI AND THE ARGENTINE DC TEAM!

DAVIS CUP

GAUDIO COULD BE OUT OF THE SERIES AGAINST SWEDEN

He returned to his country where a tendinitis in his right shoulder has been detected. According to the traumatologist who examined him, “it´s very unlikely that he will be in a condition to play”. The clashes with the European team will take place on the 10th, 11th and 12th of this month

Alter being eliminated yesterday in the Viña del Mar tournament, Gastón Gaudio returned to Argentina with his shoulder bothering him and he went to the CENARD (the official Center for high performance sports) where he saw the traumatologist Javier Maquirriain, who confirmed that the tennis player is suffering from a tendinitis and that it is very unlikely that he will be in a condition to play in the Davis Cup. The Argentine team will face Sweden as from Friday 10th.

“ My shoulder hurts”, the Gato said. “I arrived from Chile a while ago and I came here directly because it was bothering me and I want to know exactly what it is”, he added.

Alter seeing the results of the first tests carried out in the Medical Department of the CENARD, Maquirriain confirmed: “Gaudio is suffering from a tendinitis in the “infraespinoso” of his right shoulder, and his participation in the Davis Cup could be at risk”.


F***!!!!!!!
