Gonzo the Great!

Hey, we need a Fernando Gonzalez thread, so here! And voila, some cool facts about Gonzo from an official website!

:::

ALSO KNOWN AS:
The Great Gonzo, Gonzo the Great, Just Plain Weird
SPECIES:
Whatever

HOBBIES:
Tapdancing blindfolded on tapioca while balancing a piano on his nose, backwards, five times fast.

FAVORITE MOVIE:
"From Here to Eternity...with no brakes."

FAVORITE TV SHOW:
"Touched By An Anvil"

QUOTE:
"No parachute? Wow! This is so cool!"

PICTURE
...

omigod, wrong Gonzo, sorry!!!

Jackpot, I found it:



You didn't think Fernando reeeeeaaally tap danced while balancing a piano on his nose while blindfolded, did you?!

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 -->
??


Oliver Cromwell lay buried and dead. Hee-haw. Buried and dead.

Re: Gonzo's Playhouse for fellow muppet babies!

Hey, Gonzo is playing Cinci, and his first round opponent is Brian Vahaly! Shake 'im down Gonzo, shake 'im down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a more serious note, does ANYONE know the severity of his injury?!

Re: Gonzo's Playhouse for fellow muppet babies!

Mrs Guga - I watched Gonzo against Henman in Montreal. Very dissapointing *sniff* Count me in as another fan, btw. I have acouple pictures of him close up that turned out decent. They are of him signing for a group of kids. When I scan them I will share.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Hi Rebecca

Yeah, I know you are a Gonzo fan. I could never forget! And you are Nalbandian's most vocal supporter! You're great!

So Fernando was pretty nice... do you think?! Or was he really down while signing for kids because of his injury?! I hope he was super nice. That is a nice thing period--to sign autographs after you are on the verge of falling over on the court while simply trying to serve. It was hard to see him not move at all--I was distraught

I am still kinda mad that my experience with him was not what I had hoped--I really imagined him to be like a Guga, and that he would be so nice to me and warm and fuzzy, but he intimidated me and I thought he was a bit rude, but he still did cater to me, and I understand he is a busy man, so I am not trying to get worked up about it. But was me after our encounter

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

Re: Gonzo's Playhouse for fellow muppet babies!

The pictures of him signing were actually from when he was getting off the practice court He was smiling though... seemed approachable. I didn't bother him for anything myself, but wouldn't have been afraid to, if I was one to approach players.

I lack direction.

Re: Gonzo's Playhouse for fellow muppet babies!

Where are Gonzo's fans!!!

Anyway, guess what!!! He will be on ESPN tonight!! Oooooooowww! I'm so happy. 12:30am ET. The only reason they're showing him is because he's taking on the Vahaly from that lame college UVA, but they will see, when Gonzo blows him out of the water, how they will hang their heads in shame!!! And if Vahaly can actually beat him--which he won't!, he better know it's because our darling Chilean is fighting an injury! GO GONZO!!!!

Re: Gonzo the Great!

Now vamos Gonzo at the USO, where he will be seeded 15th (or higher, depends on withdrawels). Or is he playing that tournament before the USO (used to be Long Island, don't remember what is instead of it now)? I hope he isn't. I'll go check.

Re: Gonzo the Great!

Ok, so i'm just confused. It is Long Island, & according to the site, Gonzo is playing. That's too bad, i wanted him to rest before the USO.

Re: Gonzo the Great!

Are you talking about Hamlet Cup? Is it now called TD Waterhouse? He is um, scheduled to play that.
