Re: Time to take a break after the US Open discussion thread

Gaston hasn't entered any events after the US Open for the moment and he is very unlikely to play Davis Cup, so this indicates that he is looking to take some time off and I hope he does and that it works out for me.

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".

Re: Time to take a break after the US Open discussion thread

Gaston hasn't entered any events and is only on the list on Madrid and Paris cause of his ranking.

But he won't be playing anything before Madrid and good for him.

As long as we have a chance to see Gaston play Madrid and/or Paris!

Re: Time to take a break after the US Open discussion thread

Gaston is off skiing at the moment.

He has put his name down to play Lyon, though to be honest I am not sure whether he is going to turn up or not. Maybe cause the Davis Cup final will be played indoors in Russia most likely, if anything goes wrong with the 4 squad players, then he could be considered.

Re: Getting back on track in 2007 discussion thread (Yes, talking about Gaston's tennis)

Gaston won't be seeded for the Aus Open and that could be a good or bad thing. I mean he is ranked 34th now and he will have his points come off from Shanghai soon.

The facts are with ranking, if he plays well enough over time then it will improve, so it's just commonsense and he has to feel happy on court and that is what is most important. The ranking will look after itself.

He decided to turn up to Madrid and Lyon and in hindsight he shouldn't have bothered and was more of an attempt to try and get selected for the DC final squad, but that was never likely.

Just hope he can find some happiness on court and has a huge physical training base and is ready to come back and improve in 2007.

Re: Getting back on track in 2007 discussion thread (Yes, talking about Gaston's tennis)

Hi all! Long time...

Gastón has already lost his Shanghai points, that´s why he´s down to 34.

I hope he might consider playing in one of the first week´s tournaments of 2007 to try to win say 50 points and ensure he won´t get someone like Federer in the first round of the AO!

Re: Getting back on track in 2007 discussion thread (Yes, talking about Gaston's tennis)

He will more than likely play an event before the AO, it makes sense to do so and Chennai would be the easiest one in terms of overall depth.

The facts are that he is 34th and anyone between 24-32 is going to get someone in the top 8. I just hope if Gaston somehow is seeded that Boredo is the guy that he meets.

Re: Getting back on track in 2007 discussion thread (Yes, talking about Gaston's tennis)

Losing to Berlocq 2 and 2 isn't going to do his confidence any good. He did the right thing and pulled out of Viña.

One thing I noticed is that Pantera doesn't seem to be with him anymore and Gaston isn't as fit as he needs to be.

He just has to make sure that he can get in directly for the clay TMC events.

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

Re: Getting back on track in 2007 discussion thread (Yes, talking about Gaston's tennis)

This is one of the toughest times of Gaston's career at the moment and it could get worse as now he has to play at home next week in Buenos Aires.

Yes, it's a RR event and that means he will get 2 matches at least, though this could be problematic. We could see the full circle here. They booed and jeered him after Malaga, celebrated him like a hero when he won RG and now he is playing back in Buenos Aires, if things aren't going well, then they are going to turn on him.

Gaston might need to do some meditation and definitely more work with the pyschologist to suppress the negativity. It's easy to follow a guy when he is successful, but it's times like this that players need their fans more.

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