Hello everyone! Im new here and a big Gonzo fan. :wavey:
What are the chances that Gonzo will go to Beijing to defend his title? :confused: Would like to catch him there...

Welcome here, Helgagonzalez :)
I'm sorry, but I don't know whether Feña will go to Beijing again, I guess so, since I think he'll be most eager to defend his title there! Would be great if you could see him there! ;) He's such a lovely man :hearts: and a great tennis player :D

I wonder whether Feña will attend any tournament in Holland in 2008.. I'll be in Chile in June/July, so I hope he doesn't come to Holland then ;)

Welcome Helgagonzalez :)

RogiFeñaFan : Hope you'll have fun in Chile. I'll be there in January. I make a business trip in Argentina and Chile and will end with Viña del Mar. I'm leaving on January 6th :)


I'll be in Chile in June/July, so I hope he doesn't come to Holland then ;)

Yes, first time in South America :) I'll spend about two weeks in Chile (Santiago, Torres del Paine, Atacama desert and Valparaiso), the other part is Argentina (Ushuaia, El Calafate, Buenos Aires, Iguazu and Salta). I'll try to create a blog of my trip.

Yes, of course, I go to see him play :) It will be my last week of my big trip.

Will it be your first time in Chile? Hope you'll enjoy it!! :D So you'll go to Viña to see our hero playing? :eek:

Haven't seen any official information about it yet but if he really thinks not to play MonteCarlo ... I don't know if it is a good choice or not, I'm not the once to decide that but after all if he decides not to play must be for a very good reason :shrug:

ChinoRios4Ever
04-02-2008, 12:19 AM
Once again, he said he wont play Monte-Carlo because the 2008 schedule is too tight cause of the Olympics

he will play
Munich
Rome
Hamburg
week off
RG

For me this decision was made with Larry's advice, it's a fact that the american players doesnt want to play in MC and probably Feña followed that bad example :rolleyes:

I don't understand what is up w Fena? I was hoping he w have a great year but so far, less than nada... yeah, why is it that the US players get away w not playing MC or Madrid or Paris-Bercy time after time? Ridiculo... :rolleyes:

Let's hope that Fena knows what he's doing and that soon we shall see him back to his great form again... ;)

That's the problem when you have a US coach. The Americans don't want to play in MC, he doesn't play. Because of Stefanki, he stopped playing in Europe during the summer. I hope it will be the only year he withdrew just because of the Olympics. Personally, I think that he's not confident at the moment, I think he was disappointed by the two first MS and just want to be off after the DC. I really hope that the shape will be back during the DC and that Chile will win.

As he has a tough calendar, I hope that if Chile gets a WC in Dusseldorf, he won't play to prepare Roland-Garros.

The last results are unfortunately a bit worrying for the upcoming events. Let's hope he (and Stefanki) will find the way to get out of that bad period.

Really bad that he won't play in MC. :(

To his schedule in the next weeks: I go to Hamburg. :worship: I really hope that he plays good tennis and I could see him more then one or two times. ;)

Munich is also great but for me the way is a bit to long and expensive but I will see. :cool:

My trip to MC is cancelled as well due to my business trip to Peru. A friend of mine will try to resell my tickets on spot. Best of luck to her !! I hope Gonzo will play next year in MC and it's only because of his tough calendar due to the olympics !!
