Fernando's off season

2007 was a very good year with up and downs but still he got to the Masters, was in his first grand slam final and finished the year 7.

Let's hope next year will be even better for him!

Now he has like 2 or 3 weeks free and then he'll start training for next season. He will start traning in Chile and then he'll go with Larry to the USA.

Take a good rest Fernando!

I'll start the thread with news from today -

Fernando won the Olivo award for best sportman of the year!!!
Congrats Fernando!!!

Re: Fernando's off season

From cooperativa -

Fernando Gonzalez: "It was a great year, but I always want more"

The tennis player thanked the award as Best Sportman of the Year given by the magazine D13, and analized his projections for the 2008 season. He announced that half of the pre-season he will do it in California.

Fernando Gonzalez is enjoying holidays, has still at least two weeks off after a demanding campaign that led him to play the Shanghai Masters and finish seventh of the world. But his activities do not stop, and pm Monday was distinguished by the magazine D13 as the Best Sportman of the Year.

Gonzalez thanked the award, which is given after the vote on the athletes themselves, and revised his projections for 2008.

"Now I am fully recess and my best training will be plenty of rest to start well next season, which will open as last year at the Australian Open and seek better manage of schedule for dosing competition," he said.

"It was a great year, the best of my career, but one always wants more. I wish that I could play the Masters, which is a very motivating goal and hopefully point to one of the major tournaments, a Grand Slam. I am not in favor of putting numbers, in terms of the ranking because when you growss a player that it is only "completed.

Gonzalez will play his first official tournament in the Australian Open, where he was a finalist in 2007 and fell to the Swiss Roger Federer, but will do a demanding job preparation, which will include a period in the United States along his coach Larry Stefanki.

"I will do half of the season here in Chile and the rest in California, but I still have two or three weeks of vacation. I want to rest and grab energy," he said.

About his work with Stefanki, number one on our country pointed out that "we are together since a year and a half and the results shows, but separate from that I feel that I have grown as a player and that is what has me happier."

Re: Fernando's off season

Fernando isn't on the entry list for any of the tournaments before the Aussie Open.
Hmmm ... I don't know ... I don't think it is a good idea but well at least he'll play the Kooyong exo.

Re: Fernando's off season

Thanks for the info and article Gonzoafan!

It was a great year for Fernando overall I'm really impressed with how he made substantial changes -that's never easy to do. He fell back into old habits sometimes but that does not take away from his amazing accomplishments. What a thrill to make his first slam final and beating Roger!!! When he is "on" he's proved that there are few better. He is very deserving of all the awards he is sure to get.

Now he deserves a nice vacation-back in Chile finally And then we get him in the US (although I'm sadly a loooong way from California )


VAMOOOOOOOOOOS FERNANDO!!!

Re: Fernando's off season

From terra -

-internet translation-

Fernando Gonzalez was the Latin American player who won more money

The Chilean left behind two Argentines on the podium, considering only money given in ATP events. Very stayed behind Nicolás Massú, which took a year to forget.

Fernando Gonzalez was the Latin American player who won more money this year, only considering the prizes distributed in the ATP championships.

The Chilean took a bag that exceeded by far the million dollars and left behind two Argentines.

The numbers from the Bomber in 2007 even exceeded those achieved last year. His arrival at the final Australian Open and the Masters in Shanghai increased his wallet.

Another national was among the Top Ten is Nicolás Massú. Although the viñamarino conducted a year to forget, appeared in the ninth box.

Congrats to Fernando for the other awards
