Actually, I'm not following you around. I tend to flit around to various player boards, particularly the ones of players I don't know very well. Gaston seems like a nice guy.

Hehehe, nice explanation insincere one. Onto something else now. Aren't you a bit late to try and get on the bandwagon for Gaston?

You're funny and it's obvious why you are here. You never gave a rats or shown any interest before about Gaston and it's not as if he hasn't been around for a while either. So why the sudden interest now?

Herein lies the difference I can talk about any player's respective games positive and negative without letting my personal feelings getting in the way Coria is an example of this and even though you don't like my presence in your sanctuary, I have ideas, questions and theories about his game that don't contravene any rules, yet get called a troll.

If you want to see what a stalking troll looks like, look no further than your friend Fedex, who just can't get enough of me. I can't help it if people are obsessed with me. :angel:

He is not a friend of mine, as I don't have any friends. This is how it should work in theory, there is no problem at all if you contribute articles that haven't been published elsewhere in here, photos and some opinions about his game and not try to stir up crap as you did with your previous post.

Still chuckling away at your comment about him not being a threat to your favourite players, well that's not exactly ground breaking. It's like me telling you Roddick sucks on clay or North Dakota is flat.

I'm not on the Gaston bandwagon. I'm just interested in learning more about him, like I am about many players I don't know much about, so I like to come here and read the articles and look at the pretty pictures. I guess that makes me evil.

I see you are telling porkies, then again I am not surprised. As I said before there is plenty of information about him here, but as I said before you never gave a crap or showed an interest before and it's very interesting as to why bother now.

And if you hadn't baited me with your presumtuous #145 comment, I likely would've remained a Gaston lurker and then you wouldn't have to deal with me here. :)

Considering it was a certain someone which was not myself, that decided to bait Gaston fans and no I wasn't the one that complained about your initial post getting banned.

In case you haven't noticed (which you haven't) many of us are always talking about AR's game and his weaknesses. We don't mind when others join in. But the fact that you, as a known AR-hater, had never before showed any interest until your Queen Midol showed up makes your sudden interest as dubious as my interest seems to you. :angel:

Incorrect yet again and actually my perception works quite well. I am not one of the chosen few in Andyland, I talked about tennis about a guy I don't like and stuck to that topic and so did Marc, but yet we are trolls.

You can't complain about my intentions at all, for the very simple reason I post on whatever board I choose and have participated in many discussions that discuss various tennis issues with people that I don't like and have different opinions, but that's fine for some people and not others.

Roddick has some clay titles. Where are Gaston's fastcourt titles?

Major news, this is not about Roddick at all, and if you actually read these things and the reactions, then it would be obvious this is not important.

164. A gift for the nice Gaudio fans :D
Ah!, and can you tell me, is this the Roddick forum? This is Gaston's forum, and we're here to talk about Gaston, not Roddick. You cant help bringing him up, every time you post can you? Go ahead, and call me mean and nasty, and whatever, but atleast stay on topic.

178: For putting his family first and showing such great respect for them. He cites his Father (now thankfully recovered from a life-threatening illness as Marc mentioned earlier), for being his greatest inspiration, and his brother often travels with him on tour. Also, when asked where he thought he would be in 10 years time, he said he just wants to be settled with a wife and children :)

And for those who haven't seen this - thought I would include this photo of Gaston visiting sick kids in hospital (as mentioned by Alma earlier). This photo is "borrowed" from a friend of mine - thanks Melu :)

Hi Vale!

I see that you are perfectly following all my posts here! :D But there's one detail you must have missed. ;)

Well, G's made 2 promises. You already know the 1st one concerning his hair. And NO he hasn't kept this promise, at least so far but I'm still expecting...maybe in RG next year... :rolleyes:

The 2nd is when he said the French journalist who made the interview I've posted that he would go back to RG in november to check if his name had been written on top of court n°1. And HE DID!

SO, 2 promises. 1 is kept. I'm waiting for the other one!!!!!!!!!! :p

Choupi

Vale, here's the link to the site where you'll see what Gaston showed us about his hair in RG after he won the final. It's taken from the tv site who achieved the interview. Look at the 3rd pic of G. Maybe you'll succeed to see the clip but when I tried, it didn't work.
