Sorry to all the Gaston fans.

Thanks Deb for dropping by and giving the link to the pics.

Not too disappointed about this result, especially with Gaston's current mental state. Marcos is a very talented player and had a very calm demeanour out there and lifted his game in the last 2 sets at a level that Gaston wasn't able to compete against the better player today.

Good for Gaston to take a set, but got to love this comment " lo mio no es normal " . Which means something like "what happens to me is not normal".

Congrats to Marcos and well played.

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".

The sweet souls on Sky TV only showed us the first set - before switching to the excitement of Hewitt/Berdych However, I have to say that even though Gastón won that 1st set I always felt Marcos would take the match - as GWH says, he had a very calm demeanour out there even when he lost the 1st set tie breaker. He was the better player without a doubt and deserved to win.

Well, there had to be a winner. I just wish I'll discover I have that match on tape when I come home this afternoon.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Gaston defeated the Bye 6-7 7-6 7-6 (35-33) in Indian Wells Cheering Thread

So, what conclusions after yesterday’s match?
I think that when Gastón sees it in perspective he’ll feel he’s on the way up. After an unfortunate beginning of the season with his shoulder injury that left him out of the DC, he improved his game on clay in the Acapulco semis, and now he’s improved on hard against Baghdatis. The first set showed some pretty good tennis!

But he’s still lacking confidence, which became evident in his 8 DFs (the Coria syndrome!) and we all know how he gets depressed when things don’t work out. It’s all a question of self-esteem and being too much of a perfectionist. When I see him staring into space with that pensive look I imagine him thinking “What the f*** am I doing here? Why should I continue to play if it makes me miserable?” But all in all he and his team should see this Baghdatis match as a step in the right direction, and as soon as he feels more satisfied with his game he will start to recover his confidence.

I think there are too many things going round in his head: Will he find his old form? Will he make a fool of himself? Will his shoulder resist? Will Mancini call him for DC? Will he let the flag down???
Unfortunately he’ll never be able to just relax and enjoy playing, so he depends on results to increase his confidence – it’s all a vicious circle!

Now he will go to Miami where all his family are waiting for him. I hope he and they will have a wonderful time together and that he will enter the Miami tournament in a happier frame of mind!

I'm sorry that David lost yesterday, and surprised at how the statistics duplicated those of Gastón's match almost exactly:
The score: 7-6 6-3 6-2
2:20 as opposed to 2:21 hs
8 DFs.
