Re: Week 16 : Santos (Entry List)

Congrats Gastao, finally close to reach ATP Tour !

He got WCs for Estoril too early in his career IMO. Would need one this year, but I think those he received in 2006, 2007... put too much pression on him and weren't good for his improvements.

Since 2 years, he's moving in the right direction tough. Don't know what to think about his potential

You have to remember that Gastão had a serious injury two years ago.

I like Gastão a lot, and it's even better now that he is within one good tournament of becoming Portuguese number one. He's clearly the best from that country.

Re: Week 16 : Santos (Winner : Gastao Elias)

Great week for Gastão and a big mental upgrade on his game on the final! The beginning of 2nd set was very intense, with home crowd pushing for Rogerinho and some judging over-rules that could break him mentally. He was 3-6 1-2* down after that and still managed to bring it back.

I think that his ranking will be around 106, cauze there are 14 points from last week semis that are still missing on the rankings
