Yes, good win for Gaston. That should definitely bring some confidence back. I've seen the 3rd set only. But next is Djokovic who plays well on clay and who's been having great results lately. If Gaston makes as many errors as he did today, I'm afraid it's lost in advance. But hey, I'm glad to have seen him today, not giving up after losing the 1st set. Congrats Gaston.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Re: Jimmys Bar, royalty, Jardin Exotique, don't play the roulette wheel Monte Carlo Tråd

I´m so happy for Gastón, and for all us fans!


I´ve taped the match so I´ll be able to see it this evening.
In the meantime I´ve been reading all the reports in the Argentine press, where Gastón´s win is coupled with Nalbandian´s and Chela´s, but even so they make a point of commenting on his game:

SportsYa: Some magic touches like we hadn´t seen in a long time, and good tennis.
TyC Sports: Gaudio played at a very good level
Infobae: Gaudio´s tennis resembled that of his good old days.
La Capital: In the second and third set Gaudio played at a very high level, showing great concentration.

Re: Jimmys Bar, royalty, Jardin Exotique, don't play the roulette wheel Monte Carlo Tråd

Gaston was fortunate to have a clay clown like Tursunov as his opponent and he was hitting some good length on his shots, but there were way too many errors from him.

The one advantage he has over Djokovic, is that he has played on the surface and it's never easy the 1st time on clay and this will be the case for Djokovic. This being said will be a very good test for Gaston.

As for not showing emotion after he won, that's understandable under the circumstances.

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".

He's up first tomorrow on the main court, so another early morning for me to watch.

I'm not watching with expectations one way or the other. What I most hope is that, regardless of result, Gaston plays well enough that he can continue feeling like he's finally moving forward some and out of this difficult time.

Re: Jimmys Bar, royalty, Jardin Exotique, don't play the roulette wheel Monte Carlo Tråd

is anyone watching gaston´s match right now too?

Honestly I´m very disappointed with the way gaston´s playing at the moment. No emotion, no confidence, just moping and swearing around on the court..

Horrible match. Poor quality of both, at least of djokovic in the second set. BUT was that the new inspired and fighting gaston with a new coach I´ve been looking for? Definitely not.

It doesn't happen over night, and we're talking about a battle that's been going on for a year or so. Even though it wasn't a pretty match, he made far too many mistakes, and Djokovic's game did drop in the second set, I liked the fact that Gaston hung in to win that set (and he wasn't only benefitting from Djokovic's lower level of play, his own game came up a bit also) rather than just completely fold, when you consider how many times have we seen a repeat second set from him in these situations.
