Yes, its my new camera :) It is a Panasonic DMC-FZ10PP, Lumix

I'm still learning how to use it, but I can tell you it has an auto-stabilizing function when used in sports mode and a very effective light sensor...its such a great camera!

Great pics of Gaston!! And those two of David weren't bad either :drool:

A stupid question but...

Does anyone have any idea how long Gaston's hair is when he lets it down? I don't think he's cut it since I first saw him.

Choupi, I saw the RG video just now (bad image) but I didn't hear when he promises to let his hair down. The sound is confusing and my French not so good... Have you seen the photo with his hair loose that Adri posted on Oct. 5th ? He looks completely different! It's taken from http://www.geocities.com/gaston_the_number_one/fotos.html where there are other original photos.

Hi Vale!

Sorry you couldn't see very well on the video. I have it perfectly clear here. But sometimes, as I told you, the site itself has some connection trouble.

At least, have you seen how joyfull he was? It was so emotionaly overwhelming when I saw this interview live. But I assure you it still gives me some chills when I watch it again on the web. :p

Have you seen there are other interviews? You just have to click on the day you want. You'll hear him say he will dance tango...

hi ppl, im new here. whats the issue betwween coria and gaudio?:crazy:


They have different tennis styles and different sportmanship attitudes. They were always standing on opposite sides and they were never friends. Competition was present on court but nothing else.
Coria is known for faking injuries during matches to distract the other player in front of him. Gaston is a guy who is very expressive and if he has something to tell, he does it in your face. That's why they had so many unfortunate episodes on court in Viña del Mar, Buenos Aires and Hamburg.

There's also the fans issue. Gaudio fans are very different from Coria ones. If you like a player it's obvious you will dislike the other. You can see that whenever they face each other, the stadiums look like a football one =O)

I'm curious about that red bracelet he's been wearing since the TMC started... It looks like a red version of those yellow "Livestrong" bracelets...

More pictures (from GettyImages):

Vale
11-18-2004, 05:22 PM
Lots of Argentines have what we call “cábalas”, where you do something for luck, and even if you don’t believe in it, you do it just in case! One of the typical ones is to wear a red ribbon for luck, and I’m guessing the red bracelet was a substitute. Maybe the GF gave it to him. I’m sure he wore the RG outfit for luck too, which goes to show that cábalas are overrated.

MeluG
11-18-2004, 08:38 PM
Nope, his red bracelet has nothing to do with a cabala. It was a gift from somebody who admires him and he felt like wearing it ;O)

And as far as the outfit is concerned, he's wearing it again by contract with Diadora.

Big thanX for all pictures you guys posted here. I just had a chance to see the replay last night after waiting to see the match live for such a long time and had to go out for work. All I can say is it's not GG's day. :sad:

It reminds me of the final match in Stuggart, Mercedes Cup that GG played against Canas, and GG was so upset that he smashed the racket like this time.

Go Gaston! We all cheer and support you.

As most of us know it was Gaston's birthday a couple of days ago (December 9), so here's a nice picture of him celebrating and cutting his Birthday cake :bdaycake:

Seems to be embarassed while cutting it. Well I would have loved to help him do it, just to have the opportunity to share the cake with him. We've got quite the same birthday date after all, haven't we? ;)

I think that pic is from when Argentina played Russia in the Davis Cup.. but hey it's a cake so it counts! At the beginning I thought it was from his birthday as well :D

LOL, I ate a huge piece of chocolate cake on Thursday :drool:, I shouldn't have [I'm not supposed to eat that much sugar] but it wasn't until after I finished it that I thought "what the hell, that was for Gastón's birthday"! :devil: hehe...

Well a friend of mine in Argentina sent it to me and told me it was from his Birthday - so I guess I took their words at face value. It would explain why Luza is there though- if it's an older photo- I did wonder about that.

I saw that picture some time ago at Melu's site [I think...], so it is old indeed... but it's OK, as I said he's cutting a cake there so it counts as a birthday picture :D

As you know I am the soul of discretion and never reveal my sources ;) However, on this occasion I'm afraid my "source" is no more exciting than the daily newspaper "Clarins", and this is the article that went with it. Sorry I am busy at work so no time to translate properly - basically it just says that the Copa Argentina de Tenis is growing bigger each year, that most of the seats are already sold, and that the specially laid ashpalt court will remain at the Club all the time to give Argentine players ample opportunity to practice on fast surfaces. This is the link if you want to read it yourselves:-

TENIS: UNA CARPETA ASFALTICA VIOLACEA REEMPLAZA AL MITICO POLVO DE LADRILLO DEL BUENOS AIRES LAWN TENNIS CLUB

Ocho estrellas, esta vez sobre el cemento

Gastón Gaudio, campeón en Roland Garros, y David Nalbandian son los polos de atracción de la Copa Argentina, que arranca hoy.

Destinada a convivir con la lluvia —el año pasado debido al agua terminó un martes y ayer hubo tormenta—, la 2ª Copa Argentina quiere crecer. Lo hace en el mítico Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis, sobre cemento y con una inversión cercana a los 600 mil pesos.

Con figuras como Gastón Gaudio y David Nalbandian, el torneo exhibición le brindará a la gente la chance de ver a sus jugadores. Y según Pier Squillari, uno de los organizadores junto a Luis Lobo, "la demanda de entradas viene muy bien". De los 4.600 lugares que tiene el estadio para el torneo, se venderán 3.500 entradas por día —las otras se regalarán a los sponsors—, a un valor que va entre los 30 y 60 pesos.

También el interés se notó en la aparición de más sponsors, ya que este año se duplicó la cantidad de la edición que en 2003 ganó Guillermo Cañas. "Son 30 clientes, entre auspiciantes, gastronomía y stands", le dijo el directivo a Clarín, en referencia al crecimiento económico de la competencia.

La carpeta asfáltica —de color azul violáceo— que cubrirá el histórico polvo de ladrillo, le costó al torneo 40 mil pesos y quedará hasta cerca de fin de año para que los jugadores argentinos se entrenen de cara a la gira sobre canchas rápidas, en enero. "Probamos la cancha, es muy buena, está bien hecha", comentó Agustín Calleri.

Pero no todos son números. Ayer, en la conferencia de prensa, Gaudio, Mariano Zabaleta, José Acasuso, Juan Ignacio Chela, Calleri más Gastón Etlis y Mariano Hood (jugarán un dobles el domingo con Martín Rodríguez y Martín García, respectivamente), lucieron una remera blanca apoyando la labor comunitaria del ACNUR, una entidad de las Naciones Unidas destinada a recaudar fondos para los programas educativos y deportivos para refugiados. Incluso ayer estuvo el actor Osvaldo Laport, cara visible en Argentina de este programa.

Con la presencia de un oro olímpico —el chileno Fernando González, ganador del dobles en Atenas—, con un auto como premio para el campeón, la Copa Argentina abrirá sus puertas. Como dijo Lobo "logramos el mix más importante para realizar el torneo con jugadores y sponsors". La gente, este fin de semana, podrá disfrutarlos y también dar su veredicto final.

I am sure you would sound great speaking Spanish:) I am told my English accent speaking Spanish is "cute" but not sure if that was a compliment or an insult!!! I would sit here and translate the article for you now if I could, but don't think my Boss would appreciate the time it would take me as we're really busy here this morning.

TENNIS: A FOLDER ASFALTICA VIOLACEA REPLACES TO THE MITICO BRICK DUST OF BUENOS AIRES LAWN TENNIS CLUB Eight stars, this time on the cement Gastón Gaudio, champion in Roland Garros, and David Nalbandian is the poles of attraction of the Argentina Glass, that starts today. Destined to coexist with rain - the year last due to the water finished Tuesday and there was storm yesterday -, 2ª Argentina Glass wants to grow. It does in mythical Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis, on cement and with an investment near the 600 thousand pesos. Figures like Gastón Gaudio and David Nalbandian, the match exhibition will offer to people chance him to see its players. And according to Pier Squillari, one from the organizers next to Luis Wolf, "la demand of entrances comes bien" very;. Of the 4,600 places that the stage for the match has, 3,500 entrances per day will be sold - the others will be #***aed-refl mng to sponsors -, to a value that goes between the 30 and 60 pesos. Also the interest noticed in the appearance of more sponsors, since this year the amount of the edition was duplicated that in 2003 Guillermo gained Canes. "Son 30 clients, between auspiciantes, gastronomy and stands", the director said to him to Bugler, in reference to the economic growth of the competition. The asphalt folder - of blue color violáceo- that will cover the historical dust with brick, cost to the match 40 thousand pesos to him and will be until near year end so that the Argentine players train facing the tour on fast fields, in January. "Probamos the field, is very good, is hecha" well;, Agustín Calleri commented. But all are not numbers. Yesterday, in the press conference, Gaudio, Mariano Zabaleta, Jose Acasuso, Juan Ignacio Chela, Calleri more Gastón Etlis and Mariano Hood (they will play doubles Sunday with Martín Rodriguez and Martín Garci'a, respectively), shone a white rower supporting the communitarian work of the ACNUR, an organization of the United Nations destined to collect bottoms for the educative and sport programs for refugees. He was even actor Osvaldo Laport yesterday, visible face in Argentina of this program. With the presence of an Olympic gold - the Chilean Fernando González, winner of the doubles in Athens -, with a car like prize for the champion, the Argentina Glass will open its doors. As Wolf said "logramos mix more important to make the match with players and sponsors". People, this weekend, will be able to enjoy them and also to give her final verdict.

I haven't given up on the lottery though and the local radio station has been giving money away after they play certain songs....everyone in my office is trying to win the money so we sit glued to the radio listening for the stupid song and dialing away..we'll never win but it beats working.

TENNIS: AN ASPHALTIC CARPET WILL REPLACE THE MYTHICAL CLAY OF THE BUENOS AIRES LAWN TENNIS CLUB

Eight stars, this time on hardcourt

Gastón Gaudio, Roland Garros Champion, and David Nalbandian are the atraction poles of the "Copa Argentina", starting today.

Destined to cope with water -last year it finished on Tuesday due to the rain and there was a storm yesterday-, the 2nd "Copa Argentina" wants to grow. It does so at the mythic "Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club", on hardcourt and with an inversion close to 600 thousand pesos.

With figures such as Gastón Gaudio and David Nalbandian, the exhibition tournament will offer people the chance to see their players. And according to Pier Squillari, one of the organizers together with Luis Lobo, "the tickets demand is going well". Of the 4.600 seats the stadium has for the tournament, 3.500 tickets will be sold per day -the others will be given to sponsors-, costing from 30 to 60 pesos each.

The interest was also noticeable in the presence of more sponsors; this year the quantity doubles the 2003 edition's, won by Guillermo Cañas. "There are 30 clients, between sponsors, food and stands", the directive told Clarín, refering to the economical growth of the competition.

The asphaltic carpet -of a violet/blue color- that will cover the historical clay, costed 40 thousand pesos to the tournament and it'll be kept there until the end of the year so the Argentine players can train facing the fastcourts tour, in January. "We tried the court, it's very good, it's well done", commented Agustín Calleri.

But it's not all numbers. Yesterday, at the press conference, Gaudio, Mariano Zabaleta, José Acasuso, Juan Ignacio Chela, Calleri plus Gastón Etlis and Mariano Hood (they'll play a doubles match on Sunday with Martín Rodríguez and Martín García, respectively), wore a white t-shirt supporting the communitary labor of ACNUR, an United Nations entity destined to raise money for education and sport programs for war refugees. Even yesterday the actor Osvaldo Laport was present, representative of Argentina in this program.

With the presence of an Olympic gold -Chilean Fernando González, winner of the doubles in Athens-, with a car as a prize for the champion, the Copa Argentina will open its doors. As Lobo said "we managed the most important mix to make the tournament with players and sponsors". This weekend, people will enjoy them and give their final veredict.
