They say you really have to hit the lowest of the low, before rising again. Look at his Independiente mate Cañas look how he has come back and there are other examples.

Gaston is very honest and that can be a good or bad thing. If he feels shit or down he shows it and when he is happy, then he shows it. He will never be a poker player at all.

I think he should try and play in Acapulco and if that doesn't work, then skip Indian Wells and Miami and go somewhere else.
Agree with you 100%.
I´m just too sad to write anything today. Tomorrow I´ll tell you more about the press conference.

Poor, poor Gaston

I hope Gaston knows that he has fans who are still behind him and believe in him.

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

Here is Chela's quote on Gaston's situation (taken from Juan's post match interview of today)

http://www.copatelmex.com/novedad.php?id=53

"Gastón no esta pasando por un buen momento, pero sigue trabajando duro como lo hacía cuando ganaba y en cualquier momento se le va a dar. No creo que deje, jugar al tenis es lo que le gusta hacer"

Translation (the best I could..)

"Gaston is not going through a good moment, but he keeps working hard as he did when he won and in any moment things will work again. I don't think he will leave tennis, playing tennis is what he likes to do."

I hope Juan is right. Vamos Gaston!

Hope Gasti will be back on track in Miami -- it's been a couple of weeks now -- time for a tiny break and some good prep!!

But Gaudio doesn't have an easy draw. RR Hidalgo 1st round, then Stephanek 2nd round...and after that he could meet Haas. Gaudio needs to play as well as can here. Good luck Gaudio...VAMOS GASTON !!!

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

Good that Gaston has swallowed his pride and has gone back to the Challengers, though in reality he didn't have much choice in the matter, except retirement and he should retire only when he feels he doesn't have it in him any more and he has no obligation to anyone but himself.

It seems he can't serve at the moment and even though his game isn't serve reliant like Karlovic, he still has to serve well enough so he can control the points, but the poor serving impacts on the rest of the game.

Whether he will come back or not, this is unknown, the talent is there, but the confidence isn't and it's a lot different to the Malaga situation and many things have been and gone since then.

He needs a lot of matches to play well, but can't win, so he doesn't get the matches to build upon and the regression continues. Losing to Luzzi a set and 2 breaks up, well the fear of winning and the lack of confidence are big steps he has to battle through.

After the US Open, he will more than likely play in Szczecin and the Copa Petrobras Series, which are high standard challengers.

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".

That´s an excellent diagnosis of Gastón´s situation today.
He spent three days snowboarding in Bariloche, accompanied by Marcela, and presumably now he must be back in BA training, in order to resume competing on 27 August. Unless you know something to the contrary, I don´t think he´ll play the qualies for the US Open, as he´s down to play the Como Challenger the same week.

He is down to play in sunny Como and then I imagine he will play Szczecin and the Copa Petrobras series in South America.

Good for Gaston, playing challengers to get back on track! A good sign! [but, boy, did I miss him in MTL... ]

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: Gaston's Tennis. The highs, the lows, the on court rantings etc, etc

He might be back, he might not be and he is in the back end of his career, which is inevitable.

Well there are tentative plans on playing the South American challengers with a protective ranking, but he has to be right mentally, before he can do that, because he'd be only wasting his time, if he is not prepared to play.

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