A friend, Víctor, who lives in Miami, is going to all the matches and keeps us updated in the Yahoo group. He said that he watched Gastón training yesterday morning with Blake. Gastón was in a really bad mood (it seems to be a constant these days…), completely different to the Gaudio he saw there last year
. But thanks to Blake´s wonderful temperament he slowly started loosening up and enjoying himself and played at a great level. He said you couldn´t tell who was the hardcourt specialist of the two, and that Gastón´s backhand was working superbly!
What is worrying is that he had about 80% foot faults on his serve!!!
I have no idea how he can get on in this tournament, because nobody knows what exactly is the matter with him. I think if he wins a few matches playing well he will regain his confidence, if that´s what is causing his present lack of form, but when will that be?
Anyway, here´s wishing him all the best!
VAMOS GASTON!!! SHOW´EM ALL!!!
