Hysteria or overreaction either word could be used. I will have to explain it like this.
- A half fit Gaston lost a match easily. He chose for whatever reason to play here when he shouldn't have, but that is his choice. Therefore he has to deal with the consequences of his decision to play, whether this means he has to take time off the circuit and let the shoulder heal more or to keep playing through it.
- Look at the overall perspective instead of a narrow focus. Costa da Sauipe doesn't mean much, he played well in the optionals in 2005 and not the major clay events, it shouid be the other way around. He was fortunate those optional wins helped him out last season, but won't this season.
- If you want to criticise them then the performances in 05 against Nadal and Ferrer in Monte Carlo and Rome, in prestigous tournaments against very good claycourt players where he should be gearing up to his best are worthy of it.
-If you know Gaston then you I have already seen what has been said about his consistency issues and his mental state on court at times. This in addition to the time of the year, in concern to peaking periods, the size of the event, obvious discomfort he was in and he put himself in there are reasons for enough the comment of overreacting to this result.
