Re: The "Tenacious Florianopolis Surfers" Chat Thread!

My guess is the SA claycourt season after Australia Open. Doubt he will get a WC from AO since he never did well there and if he won't play in AO, there's no reason to travel there.

IMO, Guga should play some challengers in SA and then try to get some WCs in Viña del Mar, Buenos Aires and Acapulco. He shouldn't have any problem a WC in Brasil Open.

I definitely agree with that plan But as we all know Guga is a very good hardcourt player, so hopefully he can play some hardcourt tournaments later in the year

BTW congrats to Russia for Davis Cup win, they were the best and totally deserved to win

How good is your Spanish? And how many months you'll be on the road You can easily spend more than a week in each of these states.

Are you going with friends? I really recommend getting an CAA membership at least for one of the members. You will have lots of assistant in planning the trip, finding a motel (and get discount), getting maps, etc etc etc.
