Cervelle de Canuts, paillasson, Olympique Lyonnais and Gaston Cheering Thread

Gaston is returning to the tour in Madrid after a good break, as for the results these aren't important really as long as he discovered while he was away, why he actually wants to play the game.

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".

Lovely title! GWH at his best, once again.

Good luck in Madrid, Gaston. I hope he has found whatever he was looking for, while away. And that can be reflected in his game.

Well, I should be able to watch the match. Don't know if I should rejoice about it. Just hope it's gonna be a good match. Vamos Gaston.

I don't think it will be shown as Serra will play at the same time on the other court or maybe if the court 1 has no camera?

Well, I don't remember if Court 1 is a televised court, but in case they show Serra, I won't be totally losing as he's playing Calleri. But we'll see.

Wow, lets complain about the draw, so it's tough, so is life.

As long as Gaston enjoys himself that is good enough.

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".

well, Gasti won the first set anyway vs. Nico

I love these food-inspired thread titles!

Re: Welcome back to the land of tortilla, chorizo, Antonio Banderas Cheering Thread

And he just retired after losing the 2nd set. He didn't seem injured, so I figure there was something bugging him -maybe stomach or something like that. Even Massu was surprised to see him retiring. He never seemed to have entered the match though. No more info atm.

I`m almost sure I heard Gastón telling Nico that he felt like throwing up (I guess tortilla and chorizo were not a good idea after all ) and then Nico asked Grillotti (after Gastón retired from the court) if his stomach ached and Romano said yes.

Our commentators announced he had stomach ache. So definitely no injury.

Pobre de Gaston... not a great return to tennis after awhile... where does he play next? Basel perhaps??

Get better soon, Gaston.
