Being a Gaudio fan is an endurance test.

Dirk
05-02-2004, 02:16 PM
:lol: George it is shocking that he won two clay titles back to back in 02 and then fell off. He should be much better of a player but he is not. Its a real shame, because he could have a very nice career.

Well I think I know why that hasn't happened, it's like that tempting dish, it looks good outwardly and everything is where it should be, but once you go there it only leads to massive disappointment.

No, I am not talking about my ex-girlfriend either.

You know you can't win in 5 sets, so just work work work. No faults

http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/multi.gif GO GAUDIO!!!!!!! http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/multi.gif He must have heard you George. I think Gaston could win this thing in 5 if he had to. Have some faith.

Action Jackson
05-02-2004, 02:44 PM
Calm down Dirk, if it's going 5 he hasn't got a hope.

He better keep serving well, getting a high percentage in and work him over the backhand.

Dirk
05-02-2004, 02:46 PM
Gaston can do it. Summon up the same form you used to beat Moya. COME ON GAUDIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/multi.gif http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/otn/blobs/bounce.gif http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/otn/blobs/boldpurple.gif http://mindscraps.com/s/otn/blobs/boldlblue.gif http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/boldblue.gif http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/red.gif

You need to watch more claycourt tennis. Too bad the days of 55 shot rallies on average aren't as around as they used to be.

I remmember Lendl and Wilander playing more then 180 strokes to get to 30-15 in the first service game :lol:

Gaston needs to win this in 4, his 5 set record is about as impressive as his ability to close out matches

i hope Gaston can get the 4th, I cant remember the last time i saw a 5 set final

Dirk
05-02-2004, 03:27 PM
Gaudio shouldn't be losing this badly if at all. Gaudio Tommy is nothing compared to Moya and Guga. Come on. :fiery: Gaston has won a 5 setter before right?

Action Jackson

Yes, he has he won his 1st one in 1999 at the FO as a qualifier against Karbacher (German gigolo), but he has lost 8 in a row after that.

The last 5-set final was in Gstaad, Switzerland last July when Jiri Novak managed to beat Federer (just a week after Wimbledon success). Before that was 2002 TMC Final where Hewitt def Ferrero in 5-set classic. The 5-set finals appear to be a vanishing species~ so we should cheristh this moment with Gaudio & Robredo!!! @@

a fifth set, imagine what is going on inside Gaston's head

I can't believe I am actually semi nervous, then again I know what he is capable of.

Fight back? what he did was ugly.

Anyway, ATP can and should end this moves easily...just change a simple rule: if you want medical attention in between changes of side, you must forfeit the game you are playing, that way all this antics will come to an end...

Dirk
05-02-2004, 05:07 PM
no no. You can only call a time out in between games unless you like fall down and break a leg or wrist or something like that which would end the match anyways. That should be the rule. Tommy should have finished that game then called it. Star has no ethics. If she likes a player she would cheer for them no matter what.
