Ferrero won 6-4 6-1 and that's far from surprising under the circumstances. There is still a long way to go for Gaston, but any step forward is positive.

He couldn't get a look in on Ferrero's serve.

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".

George, you are readding my mind! He did good job on this tournament. Of course it's really he couldnt do anything with JCF, but it's only beginning Vamos el Gato!!!

Gaston's encounters with JCF have always been tight matches, most of the time, in the past. So this is not surprising at all. He did a good job in this tournament. He's coming back, step by step....

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

shame he lost 6-1 second set! that won't be good for his confidence but anyway it was a good start to win at least 2 matches on a row. Hope Gaston could recover soon! tennis will be plased!

I think as you all say...this tourney with all circumstances has been one step up

I fully agree!

I saw Gastón playing well in the first set. Except for the game when Ferrero broke him in which he played badly, the rest of the time his game was satisfactory though nothing brilliant, but he missed three passing shots with his backhand and since then he didn´t attempt that shot again.
He was behaving well on court and he seemed to have a good attitude.

But then he got broken in the first game of the second set, and I think he got discouraged. He was playing way back behind the baseline and that made it too easy for Ferrero. He also seemed to be a bit stiff-legged, and I can´t help wondering again if his new PT is as good as Pantera. But what I find positive is that he seemed to struggle on till the end in spite of the adverse score. He did a bit of yelling and asking God why he couldn´t win JUST ONE point, but nothing unpleasant.

The highlight of the match was when Ferrero seemed to hit a ball out and Gastón asked that oaf Grillotti to come down and see. He strutted around, looking and acting self-important, said the ball was in, and then Gastón put his arm around his shoulders and started trying to reason with him, looking into his eyes from 20 cms away and using all his persuasive skills, but I´m sure it was “pour la gallerie” just to show him up before the crowd as the coward he is.
And then when Gastón had to serve he called out “You can just look away, as you don´t see anything anyway”! Hilarious!

The Acapulco crowd was on Gastón´s side, which must have made him feel good after the way his home town treated him. And after the handshake Ferrero went on talking to him to encourage him.

I don´t know what Gastón may think of this match, being negative as he is, but I think he should feel it´s a step up in his recuperation as he played better than in his last matches, at least in one set, and he was up against Ferrero who played really well.

Thanks Vale for the report. (I saw the match on Betfair but the stream quality and my PC sucked and I was half-sleeping..)

Anyway, I'm glad for now with the much awaited win.

Well done Gaston in this tourney. He is slowly regaining his confidence. I hope he does well on the clay circuit this year.

Gaston, just make it to Haas and beat him!! After all, Gaston has done fairly well in Miami before [exc that the old baldy one beat him ].

Hopp Rogi! Go Gonzo! Allez Gasquet!

Re: The Rock, Miami Vice, Miami CSI and Gaston seeing off the hardcourt season in Miami

Today I heard Bonadeo say in his TV programme that Martín Jaite has accompanied Gastón to Miami , standing in for Franco. I´m pleased with the news!
Matches are about to start after 3 1/2 hours rain delay...
GOOD LUCK GASTON!!!!!!!!!!
