Yes, that is his girlfriend and it was good that she wasn't there, maybe it distracts him too much for his tennis.

Considering it was Zetlandsk who was the one who started the idea of a separate forum for Gaudio, I would think he is well aware of his career.

She wasn't at the matches and I totally agree with that, if it distracts Gaston and maybe the psychologist said that would be the best thing for his tennis, and if that is what it takes for him to play his best then that's the best solution.

Not too impressed w Gato's GF -- she seems too old for him, but what the heck! If they like each other, OK by me! These Sudamericano players seem to like those models -- doesn't Nalby have a model GF too? And Guga? Like Juanqui also.

Gaston is like Rogi, going for the older woman!

Haven't we had the older woman discussion before?

It seems some of the ladies here might be a bit jealous about Naty. :)

They were together in January for the Australian Open and she was there for the 1st round of matches, but it's still better she is not there. Franco, the trainer and the manager did a great job of cheering him on.

I will post this again. They were together in January for the Australian Open and she was there for the 1st round of matches, then she left.

Not directly, he thanked Franco, his manager, trainer, his dad Norberto who had an illness which he recovered from and he is one of Gaston's heroes and he sacrificed his time and money, when the federation didn't want to know about Gaudio, Canas, Zabaleta, Squillari.

They were together the whole time in Australia.

In Paris she was there when he was training and for the 1st and 2nd round matches, then she left in Paris and was back in Argentina. If Naty was still in Paris, she would have been there at his matches more than likely.

Welcome :) Yes he did mention his girlfriend in his speech. According to Eurosport translation, he said, "You are not here because I told you not to come. But you are here in my heart. I love you all, my family, my girlfriend." And then he cried.

Eurosport has a short video clip of his speech. Check it out if you haven't seen it.

Gaudio isn't Jewish.
But in Argentina, (and Southamerica all, most of the sportsmen (of all the religions, still being the majority catholic) they have "Cábalas" (amulets, superstitions, habits that repeat "in the same way" if the last result were favorable).
For example:
If you win, in the next match you should use the same shoes (Coria when he lost his first set with Henman he changed his red shoes for white shoes, the white ones he used with Moya, He said that).

You should to wake up at the same hour. You should eat in the same restaurant, et. Almost everything in the same way.
Cábala is like a help for the self-confidence.
It does not have anything to do with the religion. It is almost one custom.

Gastón said: "¡Mami, papi, no están aquí porque les pedí que no vinieran por cábala, pero están acá en mi corazón, los amo a todos. A mi familia, a mi novia (acá se quiebra en llanto), a mis amigos, para toda la gente en Buenos Aires que se lo merece"

"momy, dady, you are not here because I asked you not came here for "cábala", but you are here in my heart..., I love you all.... to my family...to my girlfriend (here he get broken in cry), to my friends, for all the people in Buenos Aires that they deserve it."(his gratesfulness)

Re Gaston's GF, an intersting mention in this article (in Spanish):
http://www0.caras.uol.com.ar/edicion_1170/nota_00.htm

Qoute:
.....Reservado y de bajo perfil, Gaudio protege como un secreto de estado su relación con la modelo de Pancho Dotto. Relación que comenzó una noche de mayo de 2002, durante una fiesta del equipo argentino de Copa Davis. En ese momento, el tenista venía de separarse de Johanna Trosman, hermana de la diseñadora Jessica Trosman, y Natalia acaba de cortar con el cineasta Beltrán Zuberbühler. Por esa razón siempre evitaron mostrarse juntos, a tal punto que en varias oportunidades parecían estar distanciados. Pero nada de eso ocurrió, y el agradecimiento público que Gaudio le dedicó “a mi novia” en Roland Garros demuestra la vigencia del vínculo.

I know Natalia personally and she's very nice and supports GG a lot. She picked him at the airport when he came back from RG and said hi to the fans who were there on behalf of GG. She's very easygoing. And when Gaston plays in BA, she's always there watching his matches with his friends from childhood. They are a pretty couple. Cause unlike other player's gfs, she now chooses carefully the photos she wants to do and she avoids paparazzis. I hope they stick together ;O)

Yes I totally relate to this because it's called a superstition. Everyone has their own ways, but some cultures and ethnic groups tend to believe in it more as a way of giving themselves a boost or a little confidence or finding a source of luck, but at the same time praying! I try not to do this, but I sometimes slip and catch myself doing something like this! :rolleyes:

MeluG
10-06-2004, 06:19 PM
The cabalas that players have or follow do not have a religeous connotation. Moreover, GG is catholic and went to a private european school in Bs As. What he means as cabalas is a tradition that you will keep on doing since it doesn't cause you negative results. If he played all the slam without his family and he won, why tempting luck by inviting his family and then probably lose?
As a fan, I also had cabalas during Roland Garros which I won't comment on here but it's nothing related to religion.
Cheers!

I agree with you Melu - I think Natalia is very beautiful in a classical sort of way. She is not your typical "bleached blonde" tacky looking model if you know what I mean! Having said that - I think it is unfair that some people have this view that if a girl decides to model for her career, then she is thick and stupid with few morals...........some might be, but then you get people like that in every walk of life - some models are really nice girls. Just my opinion anyway.

Rosie, it's indeed unfair that all models have been stuck with that "tag", so to speak. Unfortunately, some models have cultivated careers out of being "bubble-headed bleach blondes", and have gotten more attention than they deserve from such antics. They are the ones who make it hard for other models who actually have intelligence and common sense to establish some credibility.

I have met Naty, and as for my opinion of her, it doesn't count for the simple reason is I am not going out with her and I agree with PR , that the most important thing is that Gaston is happy with that side of things, and if she is making him happy then that's good.

I've only heard [well mostly read] nice things about Gaston's GF, so it's fine by me. As long as he's happy. We're no one to tell him who to date or whatever :). I really don't care ^^.

I had my cábalas at RG too... well they weren't cábalas exactly, I'd call them "beliefs"... and they are very silly so feel free to laugh at me :P. For example:
- Maybe you noticed that Gaston had a little beard during the tournament, which he shaved after his QF or SF match [I don't remember exactly]. I kind of freaked out thinking he was going to lose because he shaved, but we all know he didn't! I know of players who don't shave until they lose, that's where I got it from.
- Another time was in the final when he came out with a different shirt than the ones he had been using during the whole tournament. I freaked out there as well. Also during the final, while I was watching it my mother entered the room several times and everytime she did so, Gaston lost a point [one time she stayed a bit longer... and he got broken]. I noticed this and "politely" [yeah right] told my mom please not to enter the room until the match ended. OK, he lost some points after that but at the end he won!

Adri,

I think nobody's here will make fun of you. Simply because each one of us has its own cabalas! Though some would never admit... ;)

For the little beard, it was after his match against Hewitt. I checked on the official DVD...

You didn't need to be so rude with your mom. He couldn't lose the match simply because I did the wave with the crowd, alone at home, on my sofa! And it really frightened my cat so you can imagine how terrific and joyful it was... :p Now you can make fun of me too. So, feel free... :wavey:

Adri
10-15-2004, 06:40 PM
LOL! it's OK! Oh I wasn't rude to my mom... She was laughing all along when I told her to leave the room... then when the match ended I screamed "Mooooom he wooooonnnn!!!!" and we watched the ceremony and everything that came afterwards together.

I was in the bathroom when they did the wave :( When I came out Gaston was clapping and I was like "what's going on?" Then I saw it in the news. I was making some noise at the end of the match and scaring my dog, too :P
