This is a REALLY hard one - forced to choose between my two faves, - thought long and hard about it, but in the end have to say David first with Guille Coria a very close second.

TennisLurker

Tennis is not a cheap sport like football (soccer), but playing tennis in Argentina is cheaper than in most of the countries.
Cañas, Chela and Paola Suarez came from poor families.
Nalbandian and Coria came from ordinary middle class families, the father of Nalbandian had two tennis courts in their little town in Cordoba that he rented to the people of the town who wanted to play, and that was the main income of the family.
David grew up playing there, and that is probably why he is so good on hard courts, the two courts were hardcourts, and they were the only courts in town.

The father of Coria is a tennis teacher, so Coria was born with a raquet in his hand.

Gaudio and Zabaleta (and Sabatini too) came from rich upper middle class families, so they didnt have any problems.I dont know about Vilas.

During the 90's we pegged our currency to the dollar, so, traveling abroad became relatively easy, and the juniors could start to play against other juniors from foreign countries in the orange bowl and the junior grand slams.
But since the economic crisis that happened three years ago when we devaluated our currency it is very hard for the juniors to travel abroad.
We could not send any new player for almost two years, but this year Sabatini gave money to the Argentineas tennis association and now we will be able to send juniors abroad again.

So, Canas brought himself up from nothing and Gaudio is a whiny upper-class brat? Interesting, that explains a lot... anyway, he's my favourite, followed by Coria, and that's just about it. Zabaleta is just a forehand, Chela is a complete non-entity, and Nalbandian has much to admire but I still find him too surly and disagreeable on court. And not in an amusing, OTT, "look at him melting down" way like Gaudio.

It's a public poll, I thought you all could just click on it and see who voted for whom?

Anyways -- surprise! -- I voted for Daveeed :baby: because I just love to pick on him so much (and I love calling him Daveeed). And, oh yeah, he's a decent player too (when he's not whining). Hehe! ;)

Actually, you could click on it and see the votes earlier today but I can't seem to do it now. Anyway, - thanks so much :) for voting for my Number One man - Happy Christmas and Happy New Year to you from a committed Daveed fan......Now I can go to bed happy as it's getting late here and I have to get up early for work tomorrow :( I hate working but guess I have to do it to pay for all my tennis trips to see the man himself!

I've become a bit of a fan of Gaudio, despite his courtside manners at times. He makes the game interesting and edgier. And Canas has a special place in my heart after TMS Toronto. That was *amazing*, in my most humble opinion.

That Argentinian tennis information was fascinating. It's so amazing what knowing the economical background of a player will do for your impression of them.

I do have to agree with Sjengster - "So, Canas brought himself up from nothing and Gaudio is a whiny upper-class brat? Interesting, that explains a lot." Absolutely. But aren't those upper-class brats amusing at times.

TennisLurker

Here we criticize Gaudio because he doesnt play with HEART like Cañas.
And we say that it is probably because his life was a little too easy.

I think he is the most talented of all the argentinean players.

Hmm... muy interesante. Thanks for a little background on the Argies! No wonder Gaston doesn't seem to care that much... no real motivation, like money, for example, altho he is fairly talented.

When I watched Canas beat Rogi in Toronto last year, I almost couldn't believe it [that was the first time I ever saw Rogi live so I was quite disappointed] but after he won the tournament beating the likes of Roddick, Safin, Haas, I was very happy for him -- he deserved to win.

Zabaleta upper middle class? He doesn't look or act it but I don't know his behaviour that much...

Well, my fave Argie is THE Guillermo...

But the young Argies are definitely giving everyone a run for their money on the courts... they are aggressive and they get results! I won't be surprised if Argentina wins the next DC... [how about vs. USA? ;) ]

I liked Gabriela too -- her brother [I forget his name now] is a soap opera actor -- I saw him in this Mexican soap a couple of yrs ago... but they don't look at all alike to me -- she's much more attractive!!

IF I see Gaston again, I think I'll ask him to pose for me... :p

What's the deal on Canas these days? Is he expected back full force next year, or is he pretty much done? :(

TennisLurker
12-09-2003, 01:45 AM
He is healthy and training hard
He started to play again three months ago (he reached the semis of Shangai I think, he lost to Philippoussis) but he decided that it was better to stop and to train hard for the next year.
He has the injury ranking, so he will be able to play in the grandslams and mts tournaments.
With all his hardwork I think he will be top 30 again next year.

Hopefully Canas can get back to some of his old form, he has been involved many long matches and I know Costa said Canas is one of the fittest guys on tour.

Lurker is that right that Canas used to be a very good goalkeeper?

Lurker I didn't know Zabaleta was from a wealthy background. He definitely doesn't act like he is a rich kid. It's sad that he has been in many top 5 set matches, and doesn't win them.

Then again his dad was a rugby player from the provinces, though I am not sure that Tandil is gaucho country?

I can't understand yet why some people say or think that Guillermo is like that....I have never seen him questioning something in such a furious way (as Rusedski ag. Roddick at Wimby) or faking injuries or something like that as others.... :(

01-02-2004, 02:26 AM
He questions calls, but he doesn't scream or yell or even raise his voice much.

Also he doesn't complain after matches and whine about the bad treatment he's gotten, etc.

I don't get it either.

Ma. Estefania
01-02-2004, 02:41 AM
Exactly, I think that he's calm player compared to another ones, Guillermo even laughs or smiles (sarcastically of course) about some bad call or something like that, but he doesn't scream as Star says, as some other do at maybe a more agressive way, as maybe David, who though I adore him, I gotta admit that he's much more "explosive" and impulsive than Guille at his questionings and complainings.

Nothing too much wrong with David, but hey could you not use the Caps lock please.

I am not a huge Coria fan, and I can see why people wouldn't like him. He seems the kind of guy, that if you were calling your own lines, he would hook the other player on anything that was reasonably close.

That's not good at all, just because he looks like a little kid doesn't mean he's an innocent especially when it comes to his attitude to linecalls.

I wasn't sure actually Wyver, but I thought there had to be a clay thought in there somewhere.

Though he has done fairly well on hardcourts, and won an indoor tournament so he is not a total gimp. Then again some of the players you probably consider/considered 1 surface guys have actually done well away from the clay, but this tends to get overshadowed in comparison.

As I said he is not a favourite of mine, or someone I loath either, it will be interesting to see what sort of year he has this season.

But I still wondering, why does some people think he is a crybaby....

You know as much as me on this issue ( are you his lawyer?), so don't go on with that he is totally innocent without looking at everything clearly. You love Guille and even if he was taking nandrolene you wouldn't believe it anyway.

He has done his time, and that's fair enough. Though how many drug cheats when they are caught actually admit they are guilty? Very few, they are always in denial, deny, deny, even though they know themselves they are guilty as.

I am sure you are going to point out his great AO and USO performances but since he played has beens and nobodies that does not prove anything. His 17-10 hardcourt record does.

:haha: LOL Wyvern - have to say I agree! And PLEASE don't get me wrong Jazzy and all the other Guille fans here - I LOVE Guille too, - you know that, - but I was in Basel that week last year and saw both Guille and David play all their matches, and in my opinion (for what it's worth!), David was playing well enough to have destroyed Guille in that final if it hadn't been for that injury. David is a far better player than Guille on faster surfaces (just as Guille is better than David on clay), and I don't think it's fair to cite the Basel final as a valid example of how Guille can be successful on hard courts! Having said that, Guille's performance against Roddick in the Masters' proves that he is improving on hard courts, so no doubt he will win a tournament in a year or so, - hope so anyway.

I never said he didn't use drugs. Maybe he did. I don't know, but neither do you. So don't say he did if you are not sure that it is so. That's fair, isn't it?

You know i love Coria, but i say, not as a Coria fan but as a tennis fan, that someone who goes to play a match against Andre Agassi being injured is not a crybaby. You shouldn't say he is just because YOU don't like him.
For example, I wouldn't say Andy Roddick is a bad player -even tho i highly dislike him- because he is not.

I don't disagree that Ferrero has more potential that Coria - period. I somehow don't see Coria ever making the USO finals... erm, I didn't see Ferrero doing it either, mind you :)

There is a difference between seeing LESS potential and NO potential ;)

No problem

I will remind you :)
I'm sorry. You seem to have misunderstood me.

You can remind me and toot your horn all day if this ever happens. I won't remember this conversation, and if you link to it, I doubt I'll read it.

Why, you ask? Because I don't care. I'm here to kill time and have some tennis chit chat.

I'm not going to let some crotchety old man (not to be taken literally, btw. I don't care how old you are, and I don't care if you happen to be a woman, not a man. So spare me the explanation) ruin the fun.

Now, again. Since you misunderstood the first time, I'll repeat myself: Go rub your ego elsewhere. I'm not interested in helping you massage it. I don't find you interesting or insightful enough to bother.

For example, I wouldn't say Andy Roddick is a bad player -even tho i highly dislike him- because he is not.

How many times would you like me to explain it? I have answered this before, and there is a post where I explained it. There was a question asked why some people think Coria is a crybaby? I gave some reasons to why some fans, would think that. I didn't call him one, what I said I was I don't like the way he is on court. If I was going to call him a crybaby, I would.

I hope you are one of these people who don't believe there is a drug problem in tennis? It exists, whether we like it or not, and no matter whether Coria is innocent or not, the suspicion lingers on about the vitamin incident.

I wasn't talking to you there, the only part where i was talking to you was the dopping part.
And i'm not stupid. I KNOW there are drugs, and i know some tennis players use them. I just think that we shouldn't accuse players from using them, because we are not their doctors, we are not their lawyers, we don't know whether they lie or not about using drugs. That's all i say.

Regarding the Coria drug incident... I remember when all that happened, and being rather dissapointed about the whole thing, since I had started following him then (I posted on tennisweek at that point, and was paying attention to him after listening to another poster go on and on about him). I don't really think about it now, though.

If he did it, he was young and stupid - and most importantly - he got caught. If he didn't? Well, that sucks. But life goes on.

I don't really care either way, because as i said... if he did it, he did the time.

01-05-2004, 02:11 AM
Yeah....and anyway....he's back, he didn't stop there, he could stood up, and there's the point of all the drugs' stuff about Guille.

About the crybaby thing....please stop it, I know I was the one who asked it, sorry, ok? :rolleyes: Conclusion: Some people think that he's a crybaby due the way he looks at complaining, or whatever. Just don't pay attention to it, Coria's fans.

Nalbandian has much to admire but I still find him too surly and disagreeable on court.

Oh, so, now if he's not all "sugar and spice" on court, then he's on your shit list? OK. Just checking....Anyway, all the players have some "bad boy" in them-some more than others-and I don't find him to be any more disagreeable or surly than any other player. Maybe he's more vocal than others? Or more passionate? Take your pick. Anyway, you have to admire a player who speaks his mind-whether you like it or not....

Exactly, I think that he's calm player compared to another ones, Guillermo even laughs or smiles (sarcastically of course) about some bad call or something like that, but he doesn't scream as Star says, as some other do at maybe a more agressive way, as maybe David, who though I adore him, I gotta admit that he's much more "explosive" and impulsive than Guille at his questionings and complainings.

Can someone who knows Argentine sports history explain to me why there are so many Argentine tennis players on the tour all of a sudden?

I thought John McEnroe (or somebody, I forget who exactly) had said that because Argentine is such an impovershed country, there is no organized tennis association there and if kids wanted to play professional tennis, then they were on their own.

If that's the case, then the fact that there are so many good Argentine players on the tour is an incredible feat. :eek: Did these top players come from rich families?

Anyways, more power to them. :yeah:

Gaudio, Zabaleta and Squillari are from wealthy backgrounds. Nalbandian and Coria are middle class, Calleri was working class, Canas and Monaco weren't very well-off financially, Monaco had to stop playing last year as he didn't have enough money to play as many tournaments, but thankfully that has stopped.

His run in Toronto 2002 was nothing short of amazing, if you look at the players he's beaten. Too bad he was side-lined by his wrist injury just when his form peaked. I remember his marathon five-set battles. He gave Costa a run for his money as well.

Yes, how come he has so few votes? ??? He's in the lower half of this poll. BTW, that's a rhetorical question, I know there's no questioning people's tastes. ;)

Yes, Canas loves the battle, and he thrives on it. That Toronto performance was outstanding and he cleaned up those players and only lost 1 set. Even Canas has a limit and he lost the 5th set 6-0 in that match against Costa that was a bruising match.

I wouldn't feel sorry for a guy who couldn't physically and manage emotions on the biggest stage. Then again playing 4 of the best of 5 sets matches in a row without a day's break is something that is worthy or having a championship stolen from you because of twisting an ankle or breaking a leg.

Whether you meant it or not, you are still taking away from Gaudio's achievement.

David Nalbandian!!

I was already a great fan of his, but the way he outplayed Federer at the US Open last year and then went on to almost beat Andy Roddick, was just great. On form, this guy is almost unstoppable on any surface. If Federer doesn't win the USO this year, I hope David wil, he deserves a major tournament the way he has played the last couple of years.

Yes, there seems to be a correlation between DuckNation and Coria, maybe they like him as they don't see him as a threat, as I saw by their Robredo worship thread.

That's not surprising if that is true.

I like all the Argentine players, but the vote goes to Gaudio, then after that Canas, Calleri, Nalbandian and Zabaleta, though I have a soft spot for big Squillari.

Uh, Cordoba, we use "DuckNation" to refer to the rabid Andy fans who inhabit the boards.

Canas needs more votes, so he is my favourite, but I like Zabaleta, Gaudio, Chela and Calleri.

I personally think it's because there are a couple of genuine Coria fans in DuckNation and the others just kind of follow the herd :)

David Nalbandian for sure!
But i also love Franco Squiillari...though is far from what he was,and ppl always forget those who are not in the limelight :sad:

Probably giving out too much credit there, but I wouldn't be surprised.

There are definitely true Coria fans, and why would someone dislike him just because he lost a match, if anyone does that they have less than one brain cell.

It can only be Daveed or otherwise known as David Nalbandian.

Thank you for an honest answer Naldo, though that would mean a vote for other then.

Is none classified under other really? isn't 'other' for Argentinian players not listed in the possible selections:scratch:

I think Other is open to anything, I mean you could always choose Paola Suarez, Diego Maradona that would come under the other category.

Whenever I visit this thread, they seem to swap positions in the lead. Unfortunately we can't vote more than once - or else I would vote for David again and put him nearer the top again :p
