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

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!!!

Incredible bad luck indeed (both for Gaston and for Argentina). I wonder who will be replacing him if he cannot make it.

Big fan of Gastón Gaudio, the best !!!

So, he lost a match, it's not like the WTA tour where the top players are hardly troubled in the early rounds, if they are not up to scratch then the player will get beaten. It's not necessarily pragmatic, it's realistic.

Well, it looks like there needs to be some time off for Gaston and still he can't play DC and that is very disappointing for him.

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".

That's a pity he can't play DC again. It's so important for him. I hope the shoulder gets better soon.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Figured I might as well merge the threads together and just hope Gaston gets through without injury problems.

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".

Nice to see Gaston back in action!

Just don't have any caipirinhas until you've won, OK, Gasti? They're pretty strong -- a Brasilian friend made some for me once... wow!
