Re: The Gaston I'm taking on all the worlds problems and my own Roland Garros Thread

Vamos Gastón!!!!!!!!
I was watching 2 & 3d sets, it was quite funny, though Gastón wasnt very happy. All the points croatian got, he made when Gato was loosing his concentration. And Gastón has left court a little bit dissatisfied he probobly wanted some 6-0 result)))

Good result. I haven't seen the match, but I heard Gaston played pretty well.

Re: The Gaston I'm taking on all the worlds problems and my own Roland Garros Thread

I'm very pleased with his win, as I thought he played pretty well: just 18 UEs, 28 winners and 75% of first serves. Who isn't pleased is Gastón himself, who still isn't satisfied and was heard to say after hitting a ball out "I'm pathetic"!
Anyway, getting through to the second round in just over 90 minutes should give him a nudge in the right direction!

I agree, Vale. I thought he did a good job to start RG this year, and definitely a ahead of what we've been seeing from him lately.

Re: The Gaston I'm taking on all the worlds problems and my own Roland Garros Thread

Post match interview of Gaston, from the RG website. There's also a short video, for those who can either speak Spanish or French.

Q. On Tuesday you said you were playing your worst tennis for a long time. How did you feel today after beating your opponent?

GASTON GAUDIO: Well, I don't think I played an excellent game. I think it was quite easy to win for me. It's the first time he plays in Roland Garros, so I made the most of that opportunity. I played a bit better than him. But it wasn't anything special really. I think I'm going to have to improve my game a little.

Q. You had a very good backhand. How did you feel the court? Was it fast?

GASTON GAUDIO: It was all right, yeah. The balls were fine. They were rather fast. The court was okay. Everything was fine really.

Q. Today the miracle happened. You said if you were to win, it would be a miracle. How many more miracles do you need?

GASTON GAUDIO: One and then it will be okay. One more miracle.

Q. How did you prepare for this tournament?

GASTON GAUDIO: Same as usual. I trained a little, came here, nothing unusual.

Q. You said if you win the first match in Roland Garros, it would be a miracle. Do you really believe that or are you just being angry because you didn't play very well? Do you believe it's a miracle, when you use that word?
GASTON GAUDIO: No, you know, when I say that, it's because the way I feel. The way I've been playing lately, well, I didn't really think I would be able to win here. That's the way I was feeling.

Now I'll see if I can play a little better during the next match.

Q. You told us about the balls. The balls are the same as in Dusseldorf. What's the difference?
GASTON GAUDIO: The court was a little heavier over there in Dusseldorf. Here it was going a little fast.

THE MODERATOR: Questions in English.

Q. In Dusseldorf you said that you were playing maybe the worst tennis of your life. What changed coming to Paris? Do you think you played any good tennis today?

GASTON GAUDIO: Well, actually I play pretty good. You know, I didn't play like I would love to play. I was playing better than the last week.

Of course, I didn't play too a guy that is maybe one of the tops. It's always good to win. I would love to play a little bit better, you know, for the next one. So we'll see.

Q. Can you tell me something about the guy that you played. At some points did it seem weird, the way he was playing?

GASTON GAUDIO: Yeah, I mean, I didn't know him. The first time I saw him playing a match. It was pretty difficult, you know, to play a guy you never heard about.

Like you said, sometimes he was hitting shots that I'm not used to. You know, he was playing too much slice, going for the ball, chip and charge sometimes. It's like, I don't know, weird, like you said, because I'm not used to play a guy like he play today.

Q. Any better feeling now after this match?

GASTON GAUDIO: Yeah, of course. I mean, it's always good to win. We'll see what happens for the next match.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Korolev is a way more dangerous player than Karanusic. I hope Gastón can raise his level. A 2nd round exit would be just terrible.

Re: The Gaston I'm taking on all the worlds problems and my own Roland Garros Thread

Gaston knows he has a lot to improve and he was Ok in this match, but OK won't do against Korolev as Korolev does have some weapons and Gaston better not even think of underestimating 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".

Gaston is 3rd match on Court 7 tomorrow.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
