Best Excuses if Gaudio wins a match or a set in Shanghai

The reasons I seperated Gaudio and Coria are while there are similarities in their respective situations, there are differences as well.

- Coria has won a match at a TMC and is a better multi-surface player than Gaudio and qualified without having being an alternate, so already Gaudio is a funny joke in this event, in addition to his outstanding performances in the event last year.

It will be interesting to hear the excuses if he wins a set let alone a match in Shanghai.

Gold Group:
Rafael Nadal
Andre Agassi
Nikolay Davydenko
Gaston Gaudio

Nadal : He has played too much, he got food poisoning from the food and he still has knee problems.

Agassi: He got more appearance money than the others, doing too many media committments and was only using this event as a training run for the Aus Open.

Davydenko: The Russian mafia told him he'd be better off financially if he lost rather than winning.

Then there is he doesn't deserve to be there and only got in because of injuries and also the only thing he knows about carpet, is that it's something that is walked on and that is vacuumed now and then.

With Safin, Roddick and Hewitt out and Coria (2-5 in last 7) and Gaudio present and Davydenko with his crappy form of late (5-5 in his last 10 matches, with a 6-1 6-1 beatdown included), this TMC is our worst nightmare.

Gaudio is an embarassment to the atp, fucking tanker. Bad rep me all you want, this arsehole tanks matches and has zero fight in him.

Davydenko is injured (that's what he said in Paris).
I also think that Gaudio has a good chance against him.

i' m not a fan of the guy. but honestly i don't think, he's that hopeless..(he's got abilities and talent, biggest minus is his inconsistent spirits).
don't know, but i think, he's even got a better chance than Coria..who's probably and unfortunately living his worst tennis levels..not to mention his current problem with serve.
returning to Gaudio..imho, winning against Davydenko, won't need much of excuses.
excuses, 'll arise for further winnings
i am preparing my excuse for Nadal:he's got a knee injury,and Gaudio is just a very lucky guy. :p
as For Agassi excuses 'll be, age, pain, no more interest in winning..(which i think would be the biggest lie)

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID:

Federer: "Well of course, it's not easy to play against him, you know. You come out on a fast court and expect to make a good start against him... but it's hard to cope when he actually starts playing. But still, the surface is a little slippery, it was awkward for my ankle... with the slide when you move to the ball, he probably thought he was back on clay, you know."

Nadal: "I think my knees still have pain, no? I try to come here and win matches, to fight for every ball, but is hard when the physic is lacking, no?"

Agassi: "Well, looking at the match-up, he obviously has a great backhand you got to be wary of and he moves very well, so those were the Xs and Os I had to deal with tonight, and I just didn't come up with the goods at the right time - he did, and credit to him. But it's hard to hit the lines against him consistently when the ballkids keep shifting their positions... it's a disappointment to me that an event like this, you know, the standard of officiating is not what you would expect."

Coria: "I have not been at my best level in the last few tournaments. I tried to play well, to give my best because this is a special event, but I think I would have lost no matter who was on the other side of the net."

Davydenko: "I have, you know, long season, matches have been tough and I run out a bit of energy here. He has won plenty matches too, but I think it was a little bit... up and down, you know? He probably has more freshness left at this part of season."

Ljubicic: "Listen, of course it is disappointing, but you have to lose eventually somewhere, right? It would have been amazing if I had made third indoor final in a row, but this was probably a match too far for me - we still have Davis Cup final to come, after all. Hey, you know, I beat Gaston on clay once, he beats me indoors - weird things happen sometimes."

Nalbandian: "Hard to say. Hard to say. Gaston played very good, you know, he did not give me easy points. I don't think I played my best tennis, it's hard to fly to Shanghai with so little time to prepare... nothing more to say, you know."

Gaudio: "Hey man, I don't know. Maybe they all get food poisoning or something? (laughter) I told David to watch what he ate at the restaurant, but he can't disobey his stomach (smiles)."

They put clay in the concrete, thus obviously and unfairly favouring dirt-ballers as Gaudio, Coria and Davydenko.

According to the players the court isn't slippery at all, and it's almost impossible to slide on it .

And besides when a player has had an ankle injury and comes back to the competition , the best court to come back is clay since on those courts the ankle suffers less because on clay you can slide a lot but on the rest of surfaces the movements are much more sharp ( it's more difficult to slide ) and the ankle suffers much more..
