Introduce yourselves

I guess every forum has one of these. A thread to introduce yourself to fellow fans! I think all the Fernando fans should say a little about themselves. I will start



I'm Mrs. Guga, my real name is Nwando. I'm from the east coast United States. I'm 20 and female

I started following Gonzo in the summer of 2003. I saw him play that same summer to. I do have a picture with him as well. I love him so much !!! I don't know anything about him as a person. But I love his strange style of play and I like that fact that he has had success with a game that isn't the most refined, nor is it the most trustworthy all the time. It's a gamble, which makes for an air of uncertainty and makes things more exciting

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Re: Introduce yourselves

I'm 19, male. I don't really remember when I started following Fernando but he became my absolute number 1 after the ARAG World Team Cup in Germany, May 2003 which Chile won. I love his attacking play and the risks he takes and try to do the same in my own game, of course more moderately in the limit of my skills. I also have the same racquet as he does first because I believe it's the most suitable racquet for me and second because Fernando uses it. All I know about him is some featured videos and interviews and based on these he has the greatest personality on tour as well. What else could I possibly want from a player?

Re: Introduce yourselves

Hi all ... I'm Laura from Chile

I saw Feña for the first time when he made his debut in Davis Cup against Arfentina in 1998, I felt impressed when I saw this boy leaving the life in the court.

Since then I follow all his matchs and have supported it always, in spite of he has had some disappointing years

Re: Introduce yourselves

Hi This is my first post in this Forum - but I've always enjoyed watching Feña play, so thought I had better introduce myself too as I plan to visit here pretty often. Many people will know me from David and Gaston's Forums - but for those who don't - I'm Rosie from England, I'm just over 30 now which probably makes me the oldest person here I go to far too many tournaments (especially the European clay courts ones!), and apart from watching tennis my other hobbies are reading, music of all kinds, animals, going to the theatre and travelling. I've met Feña a few times on my tennis travels - he is a really nice, natural, funny guy and I hope for great things from him in 2005.

Re: Introduce yourselves

Gonzo is a great guy and I enjoy seeing him play as you never know what you are going to get.

I saw him at a qualies event I can't remember, but he definitely had something different about him and thought I will follow his results.

Yesterday, I changed my name to GWH by deed poll.

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".

Re: Introduce yourselves

I haven't posted here yet, so I should introduce myself.

I'm Leena.

Most of you probably know me already.

I love Gonzo's game, and he's one of my favorites to watch. Agassi is stupid for saying he'd never want to rely on having Gonzo's game. Gonzo's game is the best.
