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

Big Gooch wins back to back matches for the first time since 1997 by beating Van der Merwe in 3 tight sets. Now goes on to play either Jones or Devvarman in the QF. Keep going champ.

To be fair on him he was winning matches back to back quite regularly before his injury. Good week for him and hopefully he can beat Devvarman. It was a very easy match for Gooch last time they played in Aptos last year.

Well, he won and is through to the semis. As always with Chris, likes to find at least one random week to play well.

Well done Gooch. Plays Michael Shabaz in the semis. Shabaz is a high ranked local college player who has been playing very well this week with wins over G.Lapentti, Harrison and Nishikori. Gooch played Shabaz three months ago and beat him 63 76.

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

Gooch was also presented with the Stuart Chase Family Sportsmanship Award after the match.

In Knoxville he plays Matosevic in the first round.

Gooch did not get to play against MM, but lost instead in straight set to Lucky Loser Fritz Wolmarans. Not the result we (and him) were hoping for.

Typical Gooch. Good week followed by a bad week. Circle of life.

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

So why did Gooch not play the WC Play-Off? And what are his plans for the summer?

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

Gooch recently got married in America. Most probably will be spending some time there in order to gain his "green" card residency for the USA.

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

Gooch finally got the exemption he needed, so now he can travel back and forth from the US.

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".
