First of all, thanks GWH for posting the info in the gaudio forum.

"Gaston is playing in an exhibition in Sao Paulo with Guga, Zabaleta, Calleri, Saretta and Sa.

It starts on Sept 15 to the Sept 18, though Guga might withdraw because of a hip problem. Gaston is in the group with Calleri and Saretta."

How many of you will be going?

Brasil in September wouldn't be a bad option, but unfortunately I can't get there due to money and military service, but it would be fun to watch for sure.

I thought it was a football re-match, :lol:

I guess they choose a grass court for the tournament ;) :tape:

Loved the jokes about a grasscourt being laid down, though this would be funny for sure.

I just hope Guga plays in this exhibition, as I think he will. No Guga = no money.

Calleri has pretty much been injured after Miami. He pulled a stomach muscle and had some leg problems. I hope he can take part in this event.

That is what I thought the off-season was for.

As far as I've been told, Agustin is much better now and looking forward to playing Sao Paulo before the European Indoor season. :) He's due to play Lyon and Vienna in October.

Sadly not, but there are some pics in the Gaudio forum if you want to see him.

jazz, who is El Gordo's new coach? Though David is the new El Gordo.

You're welcome :)

One of my best friends, he loves Calleri (not in a gay way) and is so frustrated that he hasn't be able to play and so am I?

This Sao Paulo party looks like fun, and I bet these players will be doing out to the samba places during and after the tournament.

I can totally see Zabaleta doing the samba. Can't say the same thing about the rest though! :haha:

Hey El Gato has rhythm and I think as they are South American, there should be a chance that they have good rhythm and as they are in Brasil. I bet Guga will take them to the best places. :)

I hope they are all having fun at the Guga party, but I think it would be bad if Guga didn't win this, at least it's a welcome distraction from the tour.

I agree Zet, Gaudio has rhythm.
