shotgun, what does vence mean? Alejandro Fabbri (ARG) vence Andre Ghem (BRA) 7/6 (4) 1/6
"Vence" means "leads".

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Hope Ghem can get out of this one and win the match. I'd like him to play Lucho, at least one of them will make the QFs that way.

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: André "Alemão" Ghem

Hope Lucho lays the beatdown on Fabbri.

These events are tough and Ghem isn't too far away from a career best high ranking, but it seemed like a close match and didn't take the chances.

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: André "Alemão" Ghem

Ghem is in the qualies of Montevideo and will play Lisnard for a spot in the MD.

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Bad loss to Lisnard, he must be sick or something to lose to this clown that easily.

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Andre has had shoulder surgery and will be out of tennis until March at the earliest, but April looks more likely.

I think he will be having the barbecues, chasing the girls at the beach, hehe.

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Are this old news? Cuz I can't remember of it and there's nothing about it on Brazilian tennis websites

I won a CD box of a gaúcha band with another "Alemão" as the vocalist on Christmas. Ghem should like it too

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Lets say I got this news from a good source.

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: André "Alemão" Ghem

I won't ask who is the source

I have Ghem as a friend on Orkut, but I stopped sending him messages two years ago I used to send him good luck, congratulate him for a win or ask for his schedule once in a while.

At least I can see his pictures.










What a character The last one is at one of the Uzbekistan challengers he did well.

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Ghem is hilarious in so many ways and a huge Gremista as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

I hope Ghem can recover smoothly

The pictures I guess were taken in Hawaii- Waikoloa. He has a tatoo now around his neck, it's like a chaplet.

Gaúchos are good in several things, churrasco, tennis and music among them, as you talked about rock here goes a clip of a great gaúcho musician, Wander Wildner (from Replicantes), singing in Spanish(!) "Rodando el Mundo" as a tribute to all players who travel around the world like Ghem.

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

He should be back in training now, hope he can have a good end to the year.

Re: André "Alemão" Ghem

Ghem is going to play some Futures events in Brasil to see how his shoulder holds up. Then in the European summer, he is going over there to play Challengers.

He will have a PR of 226.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
