Yes, well, that didn't stop him from chumping up last time. Then again, I don't entirely blame him for that.

That said, this is likely more Gaudio playing well than it is David doing anything... so, hopefully he stops that soon ;)

chelsea
06-04-2004, 12:10 PM

Becky David played great in that Open semi. He ran out of gas in the 5th, I mean the guy only played two 4 setters back to back.

Its ok, now Gaudio you have plenty of time for the 3rd set to think of a plan on how to counter David's plan B.

Chloe le Bopper
06-04-2004, 12:22 PM
Wa-hey! I have to go, but at least I get to go away thinking he has a good shot at levelling things. I'd like to stick around long enough to see if he holds, but I don't think I have time :(

chelsea

Come on! Fight back. Don't give up! VAMOS! http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/pinkie.gif

06-04-2004, 12:43 PM
that was important for Gaudio now that he got closer in this 2nd set
no matter if he loses or wins the 2nd set now, but it was important for him that he was getting stronger to the end and won more games
gives maybe better confidence at the start of the 3rd set

Dirk
06-04-2004, 01:09 PM
http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/pinkie.gif Go GAUDIO!!!!!!!!! The problem is David has 35 errors so far. He has 33 Winners. Gaudio's stats are lower but cleaner for the time of the match. Usually David is so consistent and clean and is winning by forcing errors. Odd match.

great comeback from Gaudio, normally it's he himself who loses those leads, but these times he makes his opponents losing big leads and winning the set

Dirk
06-04-2004, 01:13 PM
Oh boy, I don't see David coming back from this. Gaudio would have to drop his play which could clearly happen. David I couldn't believe he got broken back again when trying to serve it out. Congrats to Gaudio, I still wish he had won Bareclona. :sad: Come on Gaudio keep it going. http://www.computerpannen.com/cwm/otn/blobs/pinkie.gif

Raquel
06-04-2004, 01:13 PM
What a farce from the umpire! Shows how much attention he is paying to this thing. David is now talking to the tournament referee. David you need to let it go and concentrate.

Tricky_Forehand
06-04-2004, 01:13 PM
SHIT!!! After he saved all those SPs too (and the mess up by the umpire :rolleyes: ) :banghead:

C'mon David!!! He can still win this!!!

johnny

coria will stuff either of these guys. they can't hold serve when in a good position. nalbandian is doing his impression of an american player and giving up.

He just cant wait to get into his first final...

Marrahorra
06-04-2004, 01:15 PM
hilarious bit in the tiebreak... where the players forget which side to play the 5-2 point... so they play on the deuce court twice in a row.

David to the umpire... "if u change the rules... maybe we should change the umpire" ... Eurosport commentators cracking up

Gaston is playing amazing...

His forehand is so good today, in addition to that pearl of a backhand

Raquel
06-04-2004, 01:15 PM
henman probably won't win, but at least we know he will try to win.

Johnny change the record, you said all this about Lleyton. They don't all give up when they lose, they are just getting beaten.

Neely
06-04-2004, 01:16 PM
for those who didn't see it on TV: Gaudio accidentally served from the wrong side in the tie-break and after the point was played Nalbandian noticed the mistake and argued with the ref, but also the ref didn't notice it either and so the point was played and the score was valid (so the rules are).
Nalbandian then said that maybe the chair umpire should be exchanged if he doesn't notice that mistake, but fact is that he also didn't notice it until he lost the point :rolls: LOL

he has a LONG way to go and who knows how much mental energy

johnny
06-04-2004, 01:22 PM
yes i do, but this is not playing badly. this is giving up. he will do well to win one game in this final set.

Neely
06-04-2004, 01:22 PM
sod off.
wow, nice words Johnny :rolleyes:

we all know you are just a depressed tennis gambler and less a tennis fan and nobody can help you if you're betting Nalbandian and he is losing in straight sets

Players like Hewitt never give up at any point. Their opponents just are better.

for those who didn't see it on TV: Gaudio accidentally served from the wrong side in the tie-break and after the point was played Nalbandian noticed the mistake and argued with the ref, but also the ref didn't notice it either and so the point was played and the score was valid (so the rules are).
Nalbandian then said that maybe the chair umpire should be exchanged if he doesn't notice that mistake, but fact is that he also didn't notice it until he lost the point :rolls: LOL

Well, the fact is that Nalbandian induced that mistake from Gaudio because Nalbandian went to stand on the wrong side to recieve serve, and Gaudio didn't notice. The guy calling for Eurosport on the English edition is a former umpire and he noticed straight away that Nalbandian was standing to receive on the wrong side. He thought Gaudio would notice, but Gaudio didn't and the umpire didn't either.

So, the initial mistake was Nalbandian's. Surely the umpire should have caught it though.

what made you think i was betting on nalbandian. the only bet i have today is on coria to beat henman.
i am a tennis fan who hates seeing players stop trying. if you are happy to watch such a performance then thats up to you.

Well whether he is not trying or just playing badly David is having a total nightmare right now :sad: :sad:

I am not being cruel by saying this but all David can hope for now is Gaudio to choke this away.

Dirk

Gaudio is on cruise control. I feel bad for David. I hope this is a huge turning point for Gaudio's confidence and his career.

Anyway, it is sort of funny that Gaudio has the reputation of being a choke meister, but Nalbandia was the mentally weak one in that set. Nevertheless we might still see some nerves from Gaudio as he gets close to the end of the third.

But, Gaudio, I've never really taken you to heart because of your let-downs, but now I might start loving you a lot!! :hearts:

Yes, something has really changed with Gaudio. Maybe it was the win over Lleyton in Duesseldorf! The way he played his qf on Wednesday, I'd have never thought he'd had choking problems. Hope he never does again.

Anyway, Gaudio seems to have come into his own during this tournament. The announcers were saying that Nalbandian was a more complete player and calling Gaudio one dimensional. I thought that was interesting.

Now make it an all Argentine affair, Guille!!

But because I also like Gaston a lot:

BIG CONGRATS!!

:bigclap: :bigclap: :bigclap: :bigclap:

I just wish he hadn't played another of my favorites. Id he had played anyone else, I would be dancing around being so happy for him. But, as it is, I can only smile & applaud. I knew that Gaston had it in him and I'm glad he found it finally. If anyone deserves the title on Sunday, he does. For how he's played leading up and how he has hung in there these last two weeks at times when he would've normally given up.

Great job, Gaston!! :bounce:

I hope that David will be ok once he can process the hows and whys :sad: . It always hurts when a fighter just may not have it in him on a particular day.
