The Gaston, Chucho, Nalle and Prieto Show in Düsseldorf Thread

The subject title refers to Gaston's little hissy fit last year when he played Ferrer.

He doesn't normally do well in Rome for some reason, but hope he can do alright at this tournament.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Don't Be Put off By the Lights on the Scoreboard Roma Thread

Gaston hit with Haas today. I can't say he was hitting very well. Then it looks like he participated some kind of event in the football stadium which is right next to the tennis place. And I guess he practiced again though I haven't seen it.

I hope to see a lot of Gaston here in Rome....

He is playing tomorrow it seems.

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".

06/05/2006 20:21 - SHOW ALL'OLIMPICO CON FEDERER E NADAL, ARBITRA TOTTI

Una sfida fuori del normale per inaugurare simbolicamente la 63esima edizione degli Internazionali di tennis maschili: domani alle 13,30 sul prato dello Stadio Olimpico doppio spettacolo con il re del tennis mondiale, l’elvetico Roger Federer (nella foto), e lo spagnolo Rafael Nadal, numero due del ranking e campione uscente al Foro, per una volta eccezionalmente insieme, che scambieranno qualche colpo prima della partita Roma-Treviso contro il croato Ivan Ljubicic e l’argentino Gaston Gaudio. Arbitro d’eccezione Francesco Totti.



It says that Roger and Nadal played a doubles match against Gaston and Ljubicic this afternoon before the football Serie A match Roma-Treviso took place in the Stadio Olimpico. The referee was Francesco Totti, As Roma superstar. Hope Gaston had some fun

Do it like the sunflower, always hold your head up to the sun


Good luck to Pico Monaco, Juan Chela, Gaston Gaudio, Machi Gonzalez, Edu Schwank, Fabio Fognini, Roger Federer, Marco Chiudinelli, Rafa Nadal, Juan-Carlos Ferrero, Fernando Verdasco, Tommy Robredo, David Ferrer and Marc Lopez

Good luck with it RF. We will get Henman instead, that's what they have announced. Small consolation, given I'll be at work, so not able to watch anything.

Re: Don't Be Put off By the Lights on the Scoreboard Roma Thread

Gaston lost 63 46 46 against Xavier. Sad, but as we all know he never played well in Rome. Let's keep our fingers crossed for Hamburg, he reached the SF in 2003 and lost that infamous match against a certrain countryman... who knows what would have happened otherwise, maybe he would have a TMS under his belt...anyways, I'm sure he will go further than 3rd round in Hamburg...
