2007 was a very good year with up and downs but still he got to the Masters, was in his first grand slam final and finished the year 7. :D

Let's hope next year will be even better for him!

Now he has like 2 or 3 weeks free and then he'll start training for next season. He will start traning in Chile and then he'll go with Larry to the USA.

Take a good rest Fernando! :yeah:

I'll start the thread with news from today -

Fernando won the Olivo award for best sportman of the year!!! :yeah:
Congrats Fernando!!! :yeah:

Fernando Gonzalez: "It was a great year, but I always want more"

The tennis player thanked the award as Best Sportman of the Year given by the magazine D13, and analized his projections for the 2008 season. He announced that half of the pre-season he will do it in California.

Fernando Gonzalez is enjoying holidays, has still at least two weeks off after a demanding campaign that led him to play the Shanghai Masters and finish seventh of the world. But his activities do not stop, and pm Monday was distinguished by the magazine D13 as the Best Sportman of the Year.

Gonzalez thanked the award, which is given after the vote on the athletes themselves, and revised his projections for 2008.

"Now I am fully recess and my best training will be plenty of rest to start well next season, which will open as last year at the Australian Open and seek better manage of schedule for dosing competition," he said.

"It was a great year, the best of my career, but one always wants more. I wish that I could play the Masters, which is a very motivating goal and hopefully point to one of the major tournaments, a Grand Slam. I am not in favor of putting numbers, in terms of the ranking because when you growss a player that it is only "completed.

Gonzalez will play his first official tournament in the Australian Open, where he was a finalist in 2007 and fell to the Swiss Roger Federer, but will do a demanding job preparation, which will include a period in the United States along his coach Larry Stefanki.

"I will do half of the season here in Chile and the rest in California, but I still have two or three weeks of vacation. I want to rest and grab energy," he said.

About his work with Stefanki, number one on our country pointed out that "we are together since a year and a half and the results shows, but separate from that I feel that I have grown as a player and that is what has me happier."

Thanks for the info and article Gonzoafan! :wavey:

It was a great year for Fernando overall :banana: I'm really impressed with how he made substantial changes -that's never easy to do. He fell back into old habits sometimes but that does not take away from his amazing accomplishments. What a thrill to make his first slam final and beating Roger!!! :rocker: When he is "on" he's proved that there are few better. He is very deserving of all the awards he is sure to get. :yeah:

Now he deserves a nice vacation-back in Chile finally :lol: And then we get him in the US (although I'm sadly a loooong way from California :p )

Fernando Gonzalez was the Latin American player who won more money

The Chilean left behind two Argentines on the podium, considering only money given in ATP events. Very stayed behind Nicolás Massú, which took a year to forget.

Fernando Gonzalez was the Latin American player who won more money this year, only considering the prizes distributed in the ATP championships.

The Chilean took a bag that exceeded by far the million dollars and left behind two Argentines.

The numbers from the Bomber in 2007 even exceeded those achieved last year. His arrival at the final Australian Open and the Masters in Shanghai increased his wallet.

Another national was among the Top Ten is Nicolás Massú. Although the viñamarino conducted a year to forget, appeared in the ninth box.

González fue galardonado por la cadena Fox Sports

El tenista chileno Fernando González (7º) fue premiado la noche de este miércoles como la mejor raqueta latinoamericana del año 2007 por la cadena de cable Fox Sports, en ceremonia que será emitida este domingo.

El "Bombardero de la Reina" fue el elegido dentro de una quina compuesta por los argentinos Juan Mónaco, Juan Ignacio Chela, Guillermo Cañas y Juan Martín del Potro.

El doble medallista olímpico fue el único tenista de esta región en mantenerse y finalizar esta temporada como top ten, gracias a sus éxitos como el título del ATP de Beijing o las finales del Abierto de Australia y el Masters Series de Roma.

González agrega este reconocimiento al premio como el Mejor Deportista del Año de la Revista D13, que recibió el pasado 26 de noviembre.

Otro chileno que estuvo en disputa fue el delantero Humberto Suazo (Monterrey), quien resignó el galardón de Mejor Futbolista latinoamericano a favor del argentino Juan Román Riquelme (Boca Juniors).

El mejor entrenador, en tanto, fue un premio compartido por Miguel Ángel Russo (Boca) y Enrique Meza (Pachuca), en un apartado donde también fue incluido el técnico de Colo Colo, Claudio Borghi.

El mejor equipo del año se lo llevaron, por ende, los monarcas de la Copa Libertadores 2007 y la Copa Sudamericana 2006, en una sección donde también apareció el actual tricampeón chileno.

Otros deportistas premiados fueron el trasandino Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona) como mejor jugador del fútbol europeo, el argentino Luis Scola como mejor basquetbolista (Houston Rockets) y la golfista mexicana Lorena Ochoa fue elegida la mejor atleta del año.

Este evento, que fue conducido por los actores Kate del Castillo y el chileno Cristián de la Fuente, fue realizado en el Fillmore del Jackie Gleason Theater de Miami y será difundido este domingo 16 a las 22:00 hora chilena.

Fernando González y el Mejor de los Mejores: "Es el premio al esfuerzo"

El tenista número uno de Chile agradeció el galardón que le asignó el Círculo de Periodistas como el deportistas más destacado de 2007 y explicó la razón por la que no pudo asistir a la ceremonia.

Fernando González, séptimo tenista del mundo y fianlista del Abierto de Australia, reaccionó con satisfacción al conocer que el Círculo de Periodistas Deportivos lo galardonó como el Mejor de los Mejores 2007.

"Este es el premio al esfuerzo, que te motiva salir adelante y te vas dando cuenta que los sacrificios realmente valen la pena", indicó González.

"Este sin duda ha sido mi mejor año con actuaciones más relevante, pero la temporada pasada también... fueron bien parejos. Ojalá que pueda tener más años así y estoy entrenando para buscar que se dé eso", añadió la primera raqueta nacional, quien no pudo recibir el estímulo al estar presente en un acto solidario en el Jardín Infantil Sol Nacienmte de la comuna de Lo Espejo.

"Me ausenté porque entrené hasta las 11:45 horas, viene para acá y ahora entreno de nuevo a las 14:00 horas. Fue una lástima no poder estar, pero muchas a veces en mi carrera he tenido que tomar decisiones difíciles", dijo.

González viajará el martes 1 de enero a Australia para iniciar la temporada 2008 en el Grand Slam oceánico, donde fue finalista este año.

"Falta todavía para Australia, pero creo que es bastante bueno empezar con un Grand Slam, esto te tiene muy motivadotodo el mes de entrenamiento", dijo y se confesó tranquilo ante la defensa de puntos que deberá realizar. "Es parte del tenis y mi trabajo", completó.

Otro gran desafío para González serán los Jugeos Olímpicos de Pekín 2008, recordando que en Atenas 2004 obtuvo una medalla de bronce en individuales y una de oro en dobles junto a Nicolás Massú.

"Es súper importante, independiente de cómo nos fue antes, y me encantaría traer una nueva medalla", indicó.

González jugará este sábado ante el argentino Agustín Calleri en el Arena Santiago, en un duelo benéfico por la construcción de un hogar residencial en Tocopilla para 30 niños de hasta seis años.

Fernando Gonzalez and the Best of the Best award: "It's a prize for the effort"

The number-one Chilean tennis player thanked the award assigned from the Circle of Journalists as the most outstanding athlete of 2007 and explained why he was unable to attend the ceremony.

Fernando Gonzalez, seventh in the tennis world and finalist of the Australian Open, reacted with satisfaction to know that the Circle Sportswriters awarded the Best of the Best 2007.

"This is the prize for the effort, which motivates you go ahead and you go realize that the sacrifices are really worth it," said Gonzalez.

"This has undoubtedly been my best year with performances more relevant, but last season ... were well in hand. Hopefully I may have more years and I am well trained to search for giving that," added the first national racket, who could not be present in the ceremony to receive the award for being in an act of solidarity in the Children's Garden Sol Naciente of the commune of Lo Espejo.

"I was absent because I trained until 11:45 hours, came here and now I train again at 14:00 pm. Was a pity that I could not be, but many times in my career I have had to make difficult choices," said .

Gonzalez will travel on Tuesday January 1 to Australia to start the season 2008 in the Grand Slam ocean, where it was a finalist this year.

"There is still time for Australia, but I think that is pretty good to start with a Grand Slam, you have this keeps you motivated all the month training," he said and quietly confessed to the defense of points that should perform. "It's part of tennis and my work," completed.

Another major challenge for Gonzalez will be the Olympic Games Beijing 2008, recalling that in Athens 2004 won a bronze medal in singles and a gold in doubles with Nicolas Massú.

"It is super important, regardless of how we were before, and I would love to bring a new medal," he said.

Gonzalez will play this Saturday the Argentine Agustin Calleri in the Arena Santiago, in a duel beneficial for the construction of a residential home in Tocopilla for 30 children up to six years.

SANTIAGO.- El tenista chileno Fernando González visitó las dependencias del Hogar de Cristo ocasión en que anunció su partido del sábado 22 de diciembre, a las 22:00 horas, en el Arena Santiago con el argentino, Agustín Calleri.

Mientras el tenista de la Reina contaba detalles del partido, el Padre Agustín Moreira, Capellán General del Hogar de Cristo, le avisó que había sido elegido el “Mejor de los Mejores” por el círculo de periodistas deportivos de Chile.

Además, habló de su relación con el Hogar de Cristo y del partido que jugará contra el argentino Calleri por la construcción de un Hogar Residencial en Tocopilla para 30 niños y niñas de 0 a 6 años.

Luego, ayudó a servir el almuerzo y compartió con los 52 niños del Centro Infantil “Sol Naciente” del Hogar de Cristo, ubicado en Lo Espejo.

También asistieron al lanzamiento del partido el Padre Agustín Moreira, Capellán General del Hogar de Cristo, quién reconoció el gesto de generosidad del tenista, le agradeció su compromiso con el Hogar de Cristoy lo felicitó por este nuevo reconocimiento que le hacen los periodistas deportivos.

Partido en Arena Santiago

Esta fiesta del tenis y la solidaridad empezará a las 20:00 horas del sábado, cuando se enfrenten los futuros tenistas Rodrigo Budnik, número 1 de Chile en la categoría varones 12 años y Cristián Garín, número 2 de la misma categoría. Luego saldrá a la cancha la número 1 del tenis femenino de Chile, Camila Silva, quien jugarán su mejor tenis a la espera del partido de fondo.

El partido fue organizado con el fin de construir un Hogar Residencial para la gran cantidad de menores en riesgo social que quedaron desamparados luego del desastre natural que afectó a dicha zona del país durante el mes de noviembre.

En lo que respecta a lo deportivo, los cerca de 10 mil espectadores que llegaron hasta el recinto deportivo ubicado al interior del Parque O'Higgins pudieron ver un partido muy disputado que se dio en favor del chileno por parciales corridos pero con poco margen de error.

En la primera manga el "Bombardero de La Reina" necesitó de un quiebre en el undécimo juego para abrochar luego con su saque por 7-5, mientras que en el set definitivo sólo lo pudo abrochar a través de la via del desempate, llevándose el "tie break" por 7-2.

De esta forma todo lo recaudado en esta segunda versión de la Copa de Tenis por los Niños del Hogar de Cisto será en beneficio del hogar que se creará en Tocopilla el cual pretende albergar a 30 niños y niñas en riesgo social.

Good match yesterday. Very entertaining.
Had a great time there yesterday night.

I took some pics but unfortunaly my camera didn't work in the second set and I don't know what's wrong with it and now I can's put the pics on my computer so can't post them here. :sad: If I fix it will post the pics here.

Good to know that people helped and they got a lot of money for the childrens and also so nice to know that it will have Fernando's name. :yeah:
