11-09-2004, 11:32 PM
I just watched Guga on tv again. Guga said that he and Larri change the plans. He will start to practise in January and not more in December like he said before. So he confirmed that he will not play Australian Open , also they think it will better not dispute Brazil Open but they are not still sure about this, he said that he doesn"t want to run risks and this time desires to make the right way to arrive in Roland Garros 100%,this is the objective. And he said too , he will not play probabily Indian Wells and Miami because he don't care about the ranking , to be 40°, 100° or 200° don't have difference for him in this moment . He wants play the europe clay season starting in Monte Carlo Masters Series. He believes that making a good clay season he can get better ranking again. Well , I think this is all , I agree with him , the important is RG . Good Luck Guga !!!!!!!!
11-10-2004, 04:23 AM
I guess Guga and Larri learned their lessons from 2002.
:worship: :worship: :worship: and many many thanks brazuca!!
11-10-2004, 04:43 AM
Thanks brazuca, but I can't help being a bit disappointed:sad:.. that means we won't see Guga for a LOOOOONG time:sad:! Monte Carlo is in more than 6 months:eek:! I reeeaaaally hope he'll be 100% at MC!!!
11-10-2004, 08:53 AM
I guess Guga and Larri learned their lessons from 2002.
Yeah Lee, they're being more careful this time.
He won't play in Brasil Open :sad: it'll be a long time. But Hope he can be in good form in Clay Court season. Vamos Guga! :D
Obrigada pelas notícias, Brazuca! :hug:
11-11-2004, 03:29 PM
I also agree with Lee so we should not be disappointed. If we get him back healthy, it´s worth the waiting :) And the worst thing to do would be to ruin the effects of surgery by rushing to come back like he did in 2002.
11-11-2004, 07:17 PM
Well, I agree!. Maybe a long rest is the best for our dear Guga! :hug:
