"..........As to Gaston, he trained with Roger today. And seems Roger really liked him, coz he talked with Gaston the most when all the players together, and they are always laughing
She is going to try and take some photos of Gaston for us
Thanks a lot Crys.
So hope that means Gaston has got over whatever "gremlins" were affecting him and is enjoying himself - sorry you had such a bad experience by the way linus
Thanks for this info, Rosie! I love seeing Rogi and Gasti chatting away at the ceremony! They are just too cute!!! I'm also happy to see them practising. I always wondered if they ever practised since I've never seen them practise. I remember at IWells?? Cliffie was talking about Rogi winning the slams in 2004 and Rogi made sure to mention Gaston "me and Gaudio"!!
Gaston and Rogi look quite delectable [yes, delectable] in the black velvet jackets!!
I think it's really too bad they didn't include the alternates Puerta and Gonzalez [I guess Fena just arrived today]... not very nice...
I shall definitely be cheering on Gaston to win on Monday!!! and Wed and Fri...
It's a good sign that Gaston is smiling... he really wants to be there and do some damage!
