This has already been posted in the Ramirez Hidalgo over Gaudio thread.

Well it's a bit early in the year to make that decision, as the clay season goes into mid-September. But yeah, things aren't looking too hot for him :lol:

Gaudio is a headcase... perhaps this is some pent-up guilt about winning the French Open a few years ago??!! A case of `I`m not worthy`!!!! maybe??

I think many people go through a period where they are unhappy at what they are doing, are unmotivated, etc. It's unfortunate for Gaudio that not only is his career scrutinized by a lot of people, but that his career really really depends on #1 him doing well and #2 being mentally there. A lot of us can coast through our periods of unmotivation, unhappiness, because we know it is temporary and can see the next step in our sights. Unless Gaudio has something special he's looking to do after his tennis career, I can't imagine how difficult it is every day to not only play matches but do all the off-court work and preparation required to be a successful player. It's very sad.

I think that he would do well to take a little time off where he doesn't have to force himself to do this, and see if he misses it. If he doesn't miss it, then he would know it's time to move on, but if he (hopefully) does, then he can rediscover the passion that got him to the top 10, to winning titles, etc.

Are we still bitter about Hewitt getting his arse handed to him in a sling in the RG quarter finals? Yes, I thought so.

Rocky Llegs was in perhaps the best clay form of his life prior to that match, smacked down Malisse in straight sets, wore down Verkerd [who was reighning RG finalist at the time] & then he ran into Gaudio playing inspired/natural clay tennis...:eek: ~ I was in shock but actually very happy to see Gaston beat Coria in the final... what a bizarre match that was:devil:

Well look at what has happened to both Coria and Gaudio, seems they are always going to be linked for better for worse.

Gaudio shouldn't quit. He still has good tennis to offer and can come back from this, and i'm about as far from a fan of his as it gets :lol:

i agree with you, that´s what he should do...take a little break and see if he misses the tennis-life. i´m pretty sure he does and maybe after a hopefully not too long break he´ll be more relaxed and plays to have fun and not only to win which would take away all this pressure.

Both Gaudio and Coria are completely ruined right now. I wonder who will quit first :shrug:

Word, Deb. I feel really bad for him. And dare I say it, the same reasoning is making me feel very sorry for Britney Spears. I can't imagine the pressure of such scrutiny on pretty good days, much less my i-hate-the-world-and-myself days.

Oh Gaudio has shown this type of attitude before so I'm not that surprised! Anyways, He knows, He won't quit.

Gaudio needs a pshycologist full time work

Don't see why they should be.
Coria's young enough and talented to recover and Gaudio can make it back. He's still ranked in the top 40 :shrug:

I would say the point Gaston Gaudio won last year at the Australian Open against Fabrice Santoro, which involved dropshots, lobs, volleys, ridiculous angles and both players hitting successful between the legs shots, was the point of the year. I would also say that the set Gaudio took off Nadal at Monte Carlo was the most remarkable set of tennis I saw last year as well, certainly on clay anyway. Gaudio could play some amazing tennis when he felt inspired to.
