Today i saw Guga on a showcourt practicing with Sa during AO qualifying, but he is still in the Auckland tournament! Does that mean he flew all the way to Melbourne to hit with Sa, and then must fly back to NZ overnight?? I'm sure i saw him today,, not a lookalike. What's goin on here? Does anyone know?

Maybe he's trying to be as tired for the semifinal and final as possible? Hopefully he brought Novak with him... and Hbaty too, just for good measure ;)

That sounds very strange.

Guga is pretty distinctive. It would be hard to mistake somebody else for him.

Are you sure it wasn't Saretta or something you saw?

Saretta??lol how in the world could someone mistake him for Guga?i know he's brazilian and all but like Star said Guga is one of a kind, unless he cloned himself...

It might have been Saretta. Obviously there is a difference, but he is very likely to practise with Sa and from a long distance, he and Kuerten do look alike (a bit that is).

maybe he has a secret twinbrother. :D

Saretta can grunt like Guga. In a distance, he may looks like Guga but his hair is not as curly as Guga (unless he does something :p ) and he is more built than Guga.

I saw Guga at Starbucks yesterday. He made me a latte.

guga's so fast moving he's already here next to me in Rotterdam ;)

Lee

Another possibility is Franco Ferreiro but he looks more like Saretta than Guga.

Kiara
01-15-2004, 07:26 PM
yeah he does...his hair is much darker than Guga;s though.

So monsieur Q do you have the clone or do I?

Yeah ask Ferrero ;)

That makes me think of a poll for the 2004 off season, who has died his hair the most times ;)

I'm quick Kiara and I'm here, there and everywhere ;)

Lee
01-15-2004, 07:39 PM
Well, it's easy to tell whether the guy is Guga or not. Guga wears white shirts and shorts now with only Banco do Brasil logo only. Ferreiro and Saretta wear Diadora.

Sooooo Ilhame you are going to Rotterdam as well? What days are you planning on going? Maybe I'll see you around ;)

I'm waiting for the order of play to come out ;)

I don't want to see just anyone ;)

I saw Franco Ferreiro yesterday and he looks nothing like Guga :confused:

Maybe Guga did leave and fly back and thats why he lost so easily to Hrbaty :o
Andre Sa is his normal practice partner whenever he plays the AO. But I dont know why on earth he'd leave the tournament if he was still in it.

By the way, Sa lost in qualifying. So it was of no use practicing with a ghost/clone or whatever ;)
