Let's cheer for Guga here!!

Lee

I don't know the form of Guga since he didn't play on hard court at all. Hopefully, Paul Goldstein is not much better.

I almost forgot about his match, I feel I haven't seen him in a decade:sad: On UOL they say Guga has a plan, will play as he has nothing to lose and will go for his shots. Guga didn't talk about any injury or stomach problem, said he knew Goldstein well and let's hope for the best:)

Billabong
08-30-2005, 03:19 AM
The problem is, Goldstein played a lot of hardcourt challengers recently so he certainly has more rhythm and match play than Guga. But will Guga feel some magic and optimism:)? Will he play like we know he can:)? Anything can happen!

Last time I watched his match in US Open was in 1999 against Pioline. :smoke: It's been a long time,oh. :sad:
Less chance to see his match in US Open again,let's pray for Guga to beat him first, :rocker2: I would like to see him against Tommy in R2. :aplot:

2 UEs and Guga lost the TB :sad:

At least he's still able to control play on the baseline. Just cut those UEs dear and you can do it.

Billabong
08-30-2005, 06:05 PM
I watched it on USA... The only thing I can say, Guga is dictating play! He's either hitting winners or UFES... he had a great chance there:sad:! I'm still confident he can win!

Billabong
08-30-2005, 06:06 PM
Sorry for Goldstein fans, but this guy is really doing nothing on the court! n-o-t-h-i-n-g! It's Guga's match to win or lose! GOOOOOOO GUGAAAAAA:banana:!!!!!

Guga was so sweet and nice to Paul at the net. He smiled and talked to him and put his arm around him. Guga was so great today. He was hitting winners all over the place. I love his hair too. Glad he is back and I hope he can do some damage next year during his favorite season.

Billabong
08-30-2005, 08:03 PM
Guga is sooooo inconsistent though, but he did hit a lot more winners than UFES, so he's definitely in the right direction:yeah: The stadium was all with Guga, even though Goldtein is American:lol: Loved it:D! It reminds me again and again why Guga is by far my all-time fave player:D!

Robredo will be a lot tougher, I just hope Guga can play his game, be aggressive and outplay Robredo:D! When Tommy is angry, he can tank points and be very negative, so watch out;)!

Lee
08-30-2005, 08:09 PM
A 4 sets match is a good way to get some of his rhythm back.

His UEs are mainly contributed by his lack of match play. A slight hesitation when approaching his shot results in most of his UEs.

Tommy is a top 20 player while Goldstein is the "challenger king" (according to Jim Courier). It's a whole new ball game and I'll be happy that Guga will play a good one vs Tommy. I don't hold much hope of him winning.

shotgun
08-30-2005, 08:10 PM
I could only watch the first four or five games. Guga was playing in a really agressive style. Too bad that it took him more than 3 hours, he must be really tired. But let's hope that he gets 100% by the time he faces Robredo.

Olê, olê, olê, olá... Guga.... Guga...

I agree with Lee, Guga didn't look tired at all:) He was ready for a fifth set, and he enjoyed his match I think:) He looked very positive:D!

Lee
08-30-2005, 08:46 PM
The hot and humid weather is a plus for Guga as he's used to it while it's tough for his opponents.

:bounce: Guga won a match :bounce: When I came home, I could catch a replay of the deciding tiebreak on Eurosport. It´s great he´s playing aggressive again and his body didn´t break down in such a long match.
His hairstyle is a bit strange :lol:

Lee
08-30-2005, 08:52 PM
Guga is aggressive because Goldstein is not much a player (at ATP level) so Robredo will be the BIG test.

Goldstein basically allowed Guga to dictate the whole match, 99 winners to 73 UEs and compare to Goldstein's 26-32. Goldstein just hit the ball back and waited for Guga to make mistake most of the time.

And 3/18 (17%) bp conversion rate is just sick. Of course, it's better than 0/7 for Goldstein.

I know Robredo will be a completely different story - and I don´t exspect Guga to win this. But compared to the match I saw in Stuttgart I think it´s quite a progress for Guga being aggressive again. And it´s also a progress he didn´t falter mentally after wasting so many bps and comitting so many UEs.

That's good to hear Guga has progress since Stuttgart.

Awesome Guga comments:)

New York (U.S.A.) - the victory in the estréia in the Opened one of the United States in this tuesday meant very for the Brazilian Gistavo Kuerten in its fight for the complete recovery of the surgeries suffered in the right hip. Today, it defeated the American Paul Goldstein for 3 sets the 1, partial of 6/2, 6/7 (5/7), 6/3 and 7/6 (7/3), in little more than three hours, detaching mental force that made it to escape of situations complicated in the estréia.

"Still I am not 100%, I feel lack of force in the leg, but I am each better time and the truth is that I not wise person very well what it went to happen. It has times did not play a long departure, but the mental one favored, left difficult situations and left squares it without pain, with a normal muscular fatigue, in extreme conditions of heat ", commented the tricampeão of Roland Garros.

"For me it was as if it was my first victory in a Grand Slam, a very good moment", said Guga, that did not win a game in a match of this category since Roland Garros, in the last year. "It made much time that did not gain a departure of Grand Slam and here in the US Open also. I am very happy to leave squares with a victory, after three hours of game. Nowadays, to gain this game means very for me. It gives the certainty to me of that I can come back to play mine better tennis and of that I am in the certain way."

In one it squares completely 11 full of Brazilian fans and American, Guga was one of the great attractions of this terça in New York. Its shirt of game, with the colors of Brazil and the image of a flame in alusão to the Statue of the Freedom, called the attention the international media and it it explained. "As I am without clothes contract, a friend mine of Floripa draws these shirts for me and made this special one for the US Open."

For the next departure, in the thursday, Guga will have another test against the Spaniard Tommy Robredo, 20º of the world. "I go to tan this victory until tomorrow and already starting to think about the next game, facing as a harder test still."

Next match against Tommy is really interesting for me..or all.Hey Guga and his friends should come here to listen my points! :lol: I'm a stool pigeon this time. :rolls: I heard Tommy was pissed off by the fireworks in the last match,I think he is the guy who is easy to be interruped by the crowd/sound,I suppose lots of fans will cheer for Guga like today as well,he may be distracted again. :aplot: And I find that Guga's merits are almost equal to Tommy's weaknesses,vice versa. :eek: If Guga wants to take revenge on him desperately, :fiery:http://yelims5.free.fr/Zik/Musique56.gif:boxing:http://yelims2.free.fr/Feu/Feu01.gif:rocker2: he should beat his weaknesses. :aplot:

Gustavo :smooch: vs Tommy :ras::hug:
Best bh vs no bh :o
Ace :bigclap: vs df
Error fh :smash: vs inside out in form fh
Not running fast vs the runner in everywhere :eek:
More energy at the end vs running out gas finally
Calm person :angel: vs moody guy

But both are weak in getting bps and make some errors by hitting into the net.Anyway I haven't had an urge to know the result at once like this. :crazy: I really hope Guga will make it finally. http://yelims5.free.fr/Zik/Musique48.gif

Interesting what he says about his shirt. I think his friend does a good job designing these shirts. Maybe more players should be without clothing contract, so we could see more creative uniforms ;)

Under normal circumstances Guga should be better on hardcourt. But as we all know, we don´t have normal circumstances. If Guga can make it a competitive match, I´ll be perfectly happy.
