Tompa will get his revenge indoors :lol:

He couldn't even beat him at the AO on Rebound Ace, he will need to play at St.Petersburg to do that.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:35 AM
40-15, he better not be choking especially against Enqvist.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:35 AM
Bagel bagel

6-0 Gaudio

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:40 AM
Enqvist is on the board 1-0

Dirk
05-29-2004, 10:42 AM
Poor Thomas. Come on Gaudio. :bounce: The way Jen is going it won't be long till Rogi and Guga are up.

TheBoiledEgg

Tompa if he makes 10 games won he'll have done good :)

Action Jackson

1-1

15 all come on Gaudio lets break here.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:44 AM
TBE, you mean it will be a moral victory for Tompa.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:46 AM
Break to Gaudio 2-1.

TheBoiledEgg
05-29-2004, 10:46 AM
there goes the idea of 10 games :o
Tompa break down :o

5-6 games is a better bet.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:46 AM
Has Gaudio broken a sweat yet? I think Franco Davin his coach could give him a better workout.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 10:48 AM
Come on George don't be hard on Thomas. Clay is just not his surface.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:51 AM
He makes the 3rd round here and somehow Gonzo and Pavel didn't, so I will give him the crap.

You should see what I do to the guys who are bad on grass, but good on clay that provides hours of entertainment.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 10:53 AM
Enqvist had a break point, but Gaudio holds and leads 3-1.

TheBoiledEgg
05-29-2004, 10:57 AM
Tompa won another game :bowdown:

Dirk
05-29-2004, 10:59 AM
Bovina is blowing Jen away in this set. Looks like Rogi and Guga won't be up for awhile. Thomas might break back.

TheBoiledEgg
05-29-2004, 11:00 AM
Tompa breaks 3-3 :yeah:

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:00 AM
Tompa breaks back 3-3, ok Gaston stop feeling sorry for Enqvist, at least Enqvist won't call for the trainer.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:02 AM
:rolls: Wouldn't it be great if the final was Guadio and Tommy?

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:02 AM
15-30 Gaudio, get the focus back and break here.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:03 AM
:rolls: Wouldn't it be great if the final was Guadio and Tommy?

Gaudio or Coria and Gaudio won from 2 sets down.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:06 AM
:) Break to Gaston 4-3, ok, time to drive home the advantage.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:07 AM
Why do you like Gaudio so much George? I think he has a pretty game but is he really nice? He seems almost too nice out there on the court sometimes.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:09 AM
Why do you like Gaudio so much George? I think he has a pretty game but is he really nice? He seems almost too nice out there on the court sometimes.

He lacks confidence and doesn't have the mean streak that is needed sometimes. Think about it he is not exactly a winner and that is good enough, plus he doesn't have a huge amount of fans. Some people like him and others don't.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:16 AM
Great work Gaston held your nerve serving for a set.

6-4 and now run away with this in the 3rd.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:16 AM
Hopefully he will get over his hump. I think if he wasn't a choker more people would like him. He is young so he still has plenty of time. I'm still piff :fiery: at Barcelona.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:20 AM
He is more known as a choker, than his game and that is a problem, then again he has done it so many times.

The only bad thing about Barcelona was the ending not the match, the right guy won, but the tactics well enough said.

The Bovina match is going to 3 sets.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:24 AM
Yeah that is my problem with that match. I just hope the Rogi and Guga one is a great one. I want the winner to go far, clearly though I want Roger to be the winner. I just hope Guga's fans don't behave like trash because sometimes they do. Roger can handle it though, he did with James in NY.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:26 AM
Which Guga fans are you talking about Dirk? There is a lot of Guga love in Paris, and the crowd will be so on his side and not because they dislike Roger, but they are a very tennis savvy crowd and I have been there a few times.

2 bps to Gaudio

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:27 AM
Break to Gaudio he leads 2-1

He is serving quite well and winning most of the point on his 1st serve.

Tricky_Forehand
05-29-2004, 11:28 AM
Gaston!! :bounce: :bounce:

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:28 AM
The brazilians ones, some of them. They can be really bad. They were grunting and yelling noises at Roger during the hamburg match, Rafter RCA final they did the same thing when Pat was serving. Max Open 01 match. Not the french ones but the Brazilians ones. Still I think Roger can handle it.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:29 AM
Come on Gaudio, who is he lined up to meet next? I can't see him choking this one away.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:31 AM
Thanks for the clarification Dirk, some of the Brazilian fans think they are in the Maracana at a World Cup qualifier and I can see your point. They add a lot of colour and atmosphere, but that can lead to what I said in the previous sentence and some of the other things.

Come on Gaudio, don't let the block of wood break back.

JMG
05-29-2004, 11:31 AM
It's not Gastons last win in this tournament. I'm sure he will make at least the quarterfinals.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:32 AM

Winner of Andreev or Benneteau. I would be more worried about Andreev, though Gaston can get to his backhand and trouble him.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:33 AM
Dirk, it's amazing all these Gaudio fans coming out of the woodwork, you know there was only Lurker, Sjengster,FB, Rosie, Wyver to an extent and myself, now they seem to havbe doubled.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:34 AM
Well I hope Gaudio can keep his break. Well he lost it, back to square one in set 3.

Action Jackson
05-29-2004, 11:36 AM
Come on Gaudio break the block's serve and hold your own, you are not playing on the WTA.

Action Jackson

I hope this Jen match is over by 7:00 AM. 18 more mintues to go. I'm not sure I can follow Roger and Guga on the scoreboard. I HATE BIG MATCHES ON THE SCOREBOARD IT WILL DRIVE ME NUTS!!!! :crazy: :fiery: I will probably come and go by the hour.

I had never got any chance to watch any of Gaudio matches till recently. I like what I saw and I think his game is fun to watch, even in his match vs Hewitt in Monte Carlo, he played great tennis till he threw it away.

In other cases, I can continue to watch certain players for times and times and I won't find their game at all appealing even if they are winning.

Action Jackson

There does seem to be more than usual, and better off being sceptical until otherwise. When you have seen him throw a match away live, more than once it's a great experience in pain threshold.

Tricky_Forehand

No, not at all Tennis, that is part of the fun cheering for him.

Vamos Gaudio, the match isn't over yet.

It's sometimes safer and less stressful to keep my cheering for him quiet till it's a positive that he's going to win :) .

I don't know about anywhere else but ESPN has not uttered one word about him. Maybe that's a good thing but Guille & David are not the only Argentines out there :D

Fair enough and that's understandable. I am in a situation at the moment where I can't watch Gaudio, so this will do for now.

We have discussed that before Isy, and you described it well and you are hooked and you can't deny that.

I liked Gaudio when he won those two clay events in Spain. I didn't see him till he played JC at RG in 02.

FryslanBoppe

0-15 to Gaudio, it's break time.

Barcelona was great when he won that tournament without losing a set and giving Costa the mother of all hidings in the final in Spain, but there have some highs, but too many bad lows, hopefully he can turn that around.

Now GO GUGAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dirk
05-29-2004, 11:55 AM
Yes Jen won. Now I guess I will disappear till about 8:00 AM. God I will be very mixed today. One of them will lose. If Roger loses the press will slam him and say he doesn't deserve to be number one and he lost early even though losing to a 3 time champ is respectable. If Guga loses then its one less chance at RG glory for him. :sad: :scared:

Come on Gaudio!

at least gaudio is serving first which is a bit of a advantage, he has served pretty well this match

looks like Roger's serving troubles leaked over into this match

It' s easy with Enqvist give him no pace and hit some heavy balls and move around, and bring him forward with slice and dropshots.

Dirk
05-29-2004, 12:27 PM
If Roger is still spooked by Center Court here then :rolleyes: Guga doesn't think that way which is why he won here 3 times. Come on boys clean it up.

oh geez, Gaudio broken - not a complete choke because Enqvist hit some good backhand returns but certainly a choke element as well with a bad forehand miss

You don't get it do you. If I didn't have in any faith and after his choking episodes I would have gone off him by now.

At least it's acknowledged that he has mental flaws and major ones.

i dont think anyone is whinging about Gaudio. Judging by how much Gaudio has outplayed Enqvist he should have won this in straight sets yet he is pretty close to being level in this court.
If Gaudio was lucky to get to a 2 set to 0 lead then I would say so.

lsy

Looks like the key for him to win is to break serves instead of the other way round.

Of course the match should have been won in 3 sets, but that would be too easy. He's through and has a great chance to progress through the quarters.

Dirk

Ok Roger this is your last chance. His winners to errors ration is very healthy, but he will have to raise his serving in the next set. Don't start off sluggish there too Rogi.

Trainer is coming onto the court and Guga has called the trainer.

Maybe Roger needs to do the Medvedev tactic of landing short kicking serves on the angle and take Guga out of court.

Rogi should be ripping at least some of them. I hope his parents or Mirka or somebody tells him after this match. Sometimes Roger can be very smart and other times well not so smart. I'm just sorry that Roger come out cold and the shoe thingy didn't help, but Guga is playing great and Roger for the most part is letting him get away with his 2nd serves.

Roger will have plenty of chances to win this thing later on in his career provided he remains healthy. I hope he learns a lot from this match.
