The news headlines on TV have just said that Gaudio is practically discarded for the Davis Cup because of his shoulder injury!
What INCREDIBLE bad luck, considering he´s seldom injured, and even so he couldn´t go to the Olympics nor play in last year´s DC, when he was playing marvellously right up till then!
There´s no doubt that the injury is genuine (there are sure to be people who will cast doubts...) because it´s the DC doctor himself who ran the tests, just as on the previous occasions. The truth is that this shoulder has been bothering him for many months now, in fact, since he started concentrating so much on improving his serve. I can remember him nursing that shoulder after the semis in Estoril last year!
I´m praying he will make it, but he mustn´t worsen the injury by playing if he isn´t perfectly fit.
VAMOS GASTON, GET WELL SOON!!!
