Re: ---Chris Guccione Cheering Thread---

Good work chris, it was tough though with all that pressure, this is his major prob though, a guy who returns enough serves to allow him to just cruise through, and then in the baseline rallies he was able to keep it going long enough to make chris run and fall to error.

I have 2 major probs, 1: why was chris taught to use a western grip forehand? Unless he was a really late bloomer with his height, then the person who taught him that was a total idiot, cos if you know a kid will be very big and tall you should teach em a more eastern grip on the forehand so they dont have a major weakness with low balls, Look at Tomas Berdych, a very flat hitter, Now hes very tall and thats why hes not badly effected by the high topspin shots (same with chris) and cos hes such a flat hitter hes also not too badly bothered by the lower shots.

Its too late for Chris to change now but it woulda really helped him to be more of an attacking 1-2 punch player. Also I hope Chris Integrates the slice backhand into his game more often so that he will chip and charge on the opponents serve more often, and just come to net more with the slice backhand in general, just because id like to see him copy karlovics game, hes young enough for so that he can make that his playing style without looking like an idiot the way roddick does (cos hes got no court sense up there since he was playin behind the baseline for so many years).

Chris was brilliant in Sydney. Lets use that form as our gauge as heads off to conquer the top the top 50.

The Gooch has to win the Guangzhou Challenger to confirm that he can play in the upper echelon on a consistent basis not on a one off- i.e. Adelaide and Sydney

Re: ---Chris Guccione Cheering Thread---

Chris is into the semi finals of the 50k challenger here in China but he has been far from convincing. I think one of the problems is that the weather is absolutely horrific. It is snowing! Many many people(over 750 000!) are stranded at the Guangzhou railway station trying to get to their relatives homes for Chinese New Year. I should distribute a few Aussie flags and usher them over to the tennis stdium.

Re: ---Chris Guccione Cheering Thread---

This result in China ensures Chris will stay in the top 100 until at least the start of june and thats if he doesn't win any matches at all! This means Chris will once again make the cut for Roland Garros.

More concerned about Wimbledon. He may make the RG main draw but doing well there will be tough for him. But oh well at least he's there!

Re: ---Chris Guccione Cheering Thread---

Guccione likes clay cos he has a longer backswing. Since the ball is travelling slower he is able to put some pace on the ball and adjust his backswing

Re: ---Chris Guccione Cheering Thread---

Yeah fair enough it just hampers his biggest weapon in his serve tho but yeah he's no mug on clay.

Good win for Chris in the Davis Cup. He is dealing with the pressure and the expectation well.
