What was Gaston thinking? Take a look

http://artsweb.uwaterloo.ca/~jdu/files/crappy%20tweener.wmv He had an easy forehand winner but decides he wants to do something special and really screws it up. This was in the 2nd set while he was only a break behind.

I'm telling you, Andre said later it was stupid to make that shot in such situation, and Gaudio said that he "made it cuz he wanted to, if you make it they say 'you're a star', if you miss it 'you are a jerk'"

Both of them are right IMO

Thanks for the video ;)

thats Gaudio, take it or leave it.

He did the same thing in the AO against Hrbaty and won the point.

It might not be the most effective play... but I like it anyway :shrug:

It's good, but not the best, IMO! I had worked under a few graduates from that school many, many years ago.

It was a silly shot, but that's just how Gaston is.. As he said, he did it because he wanted to do it, and that is cause he really wants to enjoy while he plays, stupid but if it turned good, very entertaining!

Well, nobody said they were number 1 in the Doctoral Category ;) Just in the comprehensive category which puts emphasis on everything at all levels.

I would've been embarassed more than anything-although I've made similar mistakes... looks like he was unstable before he even went for it anyway... Great to see Andre at the net :D:lol:

he did the same shot against Nalbandian at Kooyong this year, and pulled it off to win the point

guess he wanted to have another crack at it

If I recall correctly, Cliff made that comment after P. Mac said "I have no idea why he did that shot." :devil:

A GS title has nothing to do with class . . . he ain't got none. I hate watching him play. It's painful for me. I don't like him. Don't particularly like Roddick . . . I like smart tennis . . . good strategy . . .

I take nothing away from Gaudio's win at RG (as sad a day as it was for me) but it doesn't mean I have to like him. Free country and all that . . .

Class is trying to hook on line calls and fake injuries, that's cool. So you like Gonzalez then if you like tennis strategy.

You are funny aren't you? You called him a classless boob didn't you? I replied yes one with a GS title. This clearly shows I don't care whether you like him or not and that's your choice, if you want to make comments like that, it doesn't people won't comment on them. Free country and all that . . .

Get over yourself.

I have not seen Gaudio carry himself well . . . with poise or with composure. There's something to be said for decorum. I wasn't a big fan of his before Houston and he certainly didn't win me over then. His behavior was deplorable. He should have been fined for unsportsmanlike conduct.

You need to get over yourself. Wow I have seen players fake injuries and do questionable things on court and yes Muster is an example of someone I liked who could be a pig on court. It doesn't matter whether you are a fan or not, you are the one that seems to have a problem.

As for being fined, why did you have money on the event?

Just remember free country and all that mantra that you love.

If you can't make your argument stand on it's own two feet without bringing up other players then your argument must be pretty weak . . .

so WTF back to you . . .

That was the funniest, dumbest thing I've ever seen a top ten player try to do. Talk about brainless. Wow. Andre must've died inside laughing.

Gaudio, hurry up and get to RG you fool. :lol:

He is a good player.. I like him since the RG04 in the first round.. he simply play class tennis.. forehand winner and very beautiful backhand... now, he like to volley now.. even best..

I cant believe McEnroe said that it was unprofessional of him to make that shot. He is obviously out there trying to have fun because that is what makes you enjoy the game.
