He definitely needs it. ;) and as JuanPablo said, if he plays like he did last weekend in Davis Cup he can get far in this tournament. And most important of all, let's hope his shoulder is okay and will not bother him.

Felipe - I see you have a avvy now ;) good one, I like that pic :D

I'll be cheering as loud as I can for Fena to beat Charly in R1... Fena, don't let lucky Carlos get you, por favor! I can only hope that Fena's shoulder is a LOT better. ;)

VAMOS, FENA!!!

If Fena can win R1 and by some miracle Feli beats Hanescu, it s be good for Fena cos Feli sucks on clay... i.e., not his best surface.

GonzoFan
04-15-2006, 06:56 PM
What a bad draw !!! :sobbing:

We can only hope that Feña's shoulder is okay and he feels well because if that's the case then he can beat Moya.

*praying for Feña's shoulder to be okay*

GonzoFan
04-15-2006, 07:01 PM

You are very confident, Radical ;) I'd also be very confident if he feels well especially his shoulder.

Had now been in 2000,I would have been frightened to see this draw.But to face Moya is ok now,and this is AMS,so most of the parts of draw are bad...when I see other's,in fact this is acceptable for me. :secret:
In this surface serve is not that important,so he could have time to recover fully,and I hope he cools down a bit if there are some bad calls.

Hola,

I was today at Fernando/Nico's match. Unfortunately, they lost :( Apparently, the shoulder is not so good, each time before his training, he warms his shoulder. Well, tomorrow, will be a tough day for me, the best will win :)

Bye and hasta luego !!

Val !!! Hola :wavey:

I hope you are having a great time. Too bad you had to see them lost today and also is sad that two of your favs have to play against each other tomorrow :sad: when the draw came out we thought about you.
So his shoulder isn't still good :awww: I'm so worried. Today he said that he didn't feel any pain at all so maybe is just for precaution. I hope it is for precaution but I'm still so worried. I hope he will feel great tomorrow for his match.

Take care :hug: and say hi to olimpo and Elea :wavey:

From Gonzo's official website. :)
www.gonzaleztenis.com

Hello friends:
Before anything I want to thank you all very much for the enormous number of visits and also for the great amount of e-mails that you all have send me. I am doing all the possible to be able to show and to tell more things about my life and my career.

Today I'll tell you that we lost the doubles with Nico (Massu). We had very bad luck, because we were all the match winning and in the super tie break we could not play well and we ended up falling by 3-6, 6-4, 10-2 against Mahesh Bhupathi and Radek Stepanek.

Tomorrow Tuesday I will play against Carlos Moyá. It is one difficult first round, mainly because of the experience that he has, besides, we know each other much. We have played four times and we go 2 to 2, so it will be a match in which we will always fight by who will have the attack, thing that we both do very well.

Hopefully everything will go well and thank you very much again for all the support.

Greetings,

Fernando González.

Wow, I'm so proud of our Fena! I've been snowed under w work all day and hardly had a chance to check sb -- when I did, he had lost the TB and I was thinking "you cannot lose to Feli on clay!!" so later I checked back cos I couldn't stand it and he had won the 2nd set. Finally, I had a mini-break and he was serving for the match... phew!!

Vamos, Fena, vs. the TOAD!!!

If Fena wins tomorrow, he will surpass his pts fr last yr when a certain Swiss guy beat him... ahem... ;)

He plays Soderling ... one of his black beast of the circuit but it's the first time they play on clay.

Oh, no, not one those!? :eek: Hopefully clay will make the difference.

From Gonzo's official website
www.gonzaleztenis.com

Hello Friends:
Again with good news. Today I have things to tell about the match against Feliciano Lopez. It was long and different.

It rained and that's why we had a court change. In the court that we were moved is the only court in the club that has a roof.

Before starting the match, we agreed with the umpire to remove the roof after the first set. The first set was very different from the last two. We never broke the other's serve and I lost the tiebreak.

There was a problem and they couldn't remove the roof, so we change court to the one that we were originally scheduled. In that court there was much more space and it had more clay. The match changed a lot, I was much more comfortable returning his serve. I started the set breaking his serve and took that set relatively comfortable.

In the third set I had an early break, but when I was serving 3-2 I didn't serve like I was doing it before and it was difficult to win the points. Then I served 3-4 and he broke my serve. When he served for the match, fortunaly I broke his serve.

That was when the most difficult moment came, when Feliciano had 3 or 4 match points. I took advantage of his demotivation after saving those match points and I could win.

In conclusion, today it was a very complicated day because of the way the match was. Is always good to win and above all matches like this. Hopefully tomorrow it will be another good day.

Thank you so much to everybody for the visits.

Fernando, your friend.

04-21-2006, 04:54 PM
I'm happy that Fena won and is into the SF of MC! Too bad for Ivan tho... hate to see him hurt -- hope he didn't push himself too much! But he HAS been playing well and going deep -- perhaps he was a little tired.

Anyway, I wish Fena all the best in the SF vs. ... my Rogi, again. At least it's the SF and not an earlier round! But I hate to see two of my guys play each other for such high stakes. I'll be happy with whoever wins!

Also cool to see Gaston in the SF also... but can he do anything to threaten the Nadal Volcano??

Sparko1030
04-21-2006, 04:58 PM
:woohoo: Fena won!!!! This is so great he's made it to the semis!!! VAMOS FERNANDO!!!! :woohoo:

It sounds like Ivan was a real trooper as we say here-kept playing thru the pain. Hope that doesn't do more damage though.

I know it sucks when your two favs have to play eachother RadialGirl and Rogifan! It just plain old sucks! When Fena and Nico played earlier this year I almost didn't even follow the match! :p

F Gonzalez / I Ljubicic

7-5, 6-1

An interview with: FERNANDO GONZALEZ
(Through translation)

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. What turned it around in the first set? Did Ljubicic's injury have anything to do with it?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: It was a really strange match. I mean, he took early break. He was 4‑1 and close to be 5‑1. After, he served for the first set. I played good that game, and after he have a problem in his feet.

I don't know. I took that chance, and I feel really good at the court. I mean, much better in the second set.

Q. So last year you were 11th in the world, but this year you started slowly. You are now 21, so maybe you are not satisfied by the start of the season? What do you feel?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: No, not really satisfied, especially how I finish last year.

I been having a problem in my shoulder in the beginning of the season, and I wasn't playing too good. Finally, this week, I find my game and I feel much better on the court day by day.

Q. Your record against Roger isn't great.

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: (Smiling).

Q. What are you going to do about it?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: I mean, the history, you have to change it, and I hope to do it tomorrow. I mean, I have nothing to lose. He's the best player in the world now and sometimes you have to lose. So let's see if tomorrow is one of the day.

Q. Last year it was a close game, I remember.

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Yeah. Yeah, I mean, was really close, but I lose the match anyway.

But he's playing good. I mean, he's a really good player, but I have the power in my shot to try to attack him tomorrow and don't let him play like he want.

Q. Roger says he's playing even better than he was last year.

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Him?

Q. Yes, on clay. Is there an approach you have in mind, do you have an idea in mind how to beat him?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Yeah, I try my best always, but he's a good player. And we play already five times. Last year we played three times.

But tomorrow is another day, and every day is different in tennis.

Q. Is there a weakness in his game?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Is tough to find it. I don't think he really have some weak part of the game, but I don't know. I mean, I'm playing better day by day, I mean. So I have to try my best, and I will do it tomorrow.

Q. Is clay your best surface, or you like to play on all surfaces?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Last year I have more better results on hard courts, on grass. I don't know. This year, maybe it's clay.

But it doesn't make too much difference for me. I mean, I can adapt really well. I played Davis Cup two weeks ago on grass, so I get here like six days before the tournament and that was enough. So I can play anywhere.

Q. Your win in Davis Cup was good for confidence, I suppose?

FERNANDO GONZALEZ: Yeah, really. The match was really important because the beginning of the season, how I tell you right before, it wasn't too good, I was with an injury, I didn't play good. And I went to the Davis Cup. That is a tournament that I like to play for my country. It was on grass and I was losing that match really, really easy, and I come back from two sets to Love down and I won, I don't know, like 10‑8 in the fifth. That was really, really important for my confidence.

04-25-2006, 09:10 PM
First, I'd like to say that I'm very happy with Fernando's result in Monte-Carlo. Congratulations :clap2: :clap2:

I was a bit sad to "leave" him after his dramatic second round, but had to visit my family in the south of France, and there, no internet connection and no satellite tv, so it was tough, hopefully mobile phones exist :)

Just a few words after my stay in Monte-Carlo. First, I spent a good time there watching the players. You realise that it's a lot of work to be a pro tennis player. We had the chance to see Fernando training many times but not on the best courts, we looked like paparrazzis with our cameras - look some of my pics :lol: - Well, to see Fernando, it's a real adventure, and you have to deserve it :)
Hopefully, he didn't play the first rounds on the center courts :banana:

Before his trainings, he was warming up several minutes his shoulder (you can see the pics), it was very interesting, I have also a video, I was like a spy, he he !! I'll post it later. I don't think the shoulder's injury is solved but apparently, it seems to be better.

The first and only double match was supposed to be on the court des princes but due to the lenght of the match before (Lisnard/Murray that I had to watch under the heat, a very boring match), they changed the court, so Gonzalez/Massu had to play on the Center court. Hopefully, at that time (around 7pm), they don't ask you tickets for the Center court and you can sit wherever you want. So, I decided to seat just behind the vip seats :)
The first set was ok, but then, the other team came back and I don't have the feeling that Gonzalez/Massu really fought to win the match, many mistakes and unforced errors. I wonder if for them, it was not only a practrice that match. I wasn't very confident for Fernando's first round when I saw that.

Gonzalez/Moya was maybe the toughest match for me, because my two faves players in this tournament had to face eachothers, and both feared eachothers I think. Carlos was not very good at the trainings and I'm sure that he wasn't confident and was negative before the match. A funny thing is that Gonzalez practriced with Söderling and I think Söderling asked him his opponent in the first round, and i heard Gonzo said "Moya", but not very happy. Well, Gonzo feared that match. It's a not a present to play Moya or Gonzalez in a first round. I was so disgusted when I heard the news :(
The match was at the end of the afternoon, an interesting match, both offered a great match. It was great to see them together, but I was so stressy for both of them. Fernando won and I was happy for him, but at the same time, I was sad for Carlos, I've been following him for 10 years now !! After the match, I went to the players" entrance to meet Sommarsverige and her friend M. and Carlos arrived. I think he didn't stay a lot of time in the players' lockers, he was so sad but took the time to sign autographes.

Then, we decided to wait for Gonzo. As I'm shy, I wasn't very motivated but finally decided to wait with them. We've waited until 8.45 pm, we were only three outside, and then Fernando arrived. I spoke to him in spanish (and he understood), and asked him for a picture. He thanked me and accepted to take the picture. But, he was very very tired, so he was nice to have accepted. When I saw him, I didn't want to ask him but finally decided because we only have a chance sometimes and to not have any regrets later. My friends wanted to ask him a picture but as he was very tired prefered not to ask him to stay. Then, he left talking with Ljubicic. They seem to like eachothers, because during one of the practrice, Ljubo showed something to Gonzo (her tini computer) and Gonzo wrote the reference in his mobile phone, they both seem to like new technologies (for Gonzo we already knew), well, it was fun to see. I thank the girls for that moment :hug: We also saw Federer, they took pics with him, he was very nice. I was gladly surprised by him, very nice and simple.

The second single match against Feliciano (L'oreal) Lopez :lol: was dramatic. The match was supposed to be played on the court des princes, but unfortunately, it was raining before the match, so they had to play on the court 2 which has a roof, after Gaudio's match (was a good match against Acasuso). We didn't know on which court Gonzo would play, so I decided to go directly to the court des princes to have a good seat (important), I was waiting and I saw Gonzo entered but went directly on court 2 :lol: So, I had to run to court 2 (a bit crowded) to have my seat. Finally, I got one seat on the third row (not so bad). The match started and Feli won the first set in the tie-break (was sad), then, they decided to play the rest of the match on the court des princes because the rain stopped. Fernando decided to go directly to the court des princes, thinking that maybe to play outside would advantage him, and Feli argued, as you can imagine, he didn't want to leave the court, first he was leading and second a roof was another advantage for his game. I totally understood him, but Fernando has been lucky at that moment I think. So, I had to run another time to have a good seat on the Court des princes :lol: I wanted to be at the same place as on the court 2, so on the right side, third row and in front of Gonzo's chair. A bit superstitious :lol: As it was late, we didn't have any problems to have good seats.

Gonzalez lead very early and won easily the second set. I think that Lopez was not focused anymore and was still thinking on this change of the court. Then, time for the third set !! Gonzo proved that he was a real fighter, he saved several match points, I was almost dying on my chair !!! The turning point was maybe when Gonzo made a great point with a ball along the line and when Lopez missed a smash (went outside the court), and if I remember well, it was each time on match point. I knew that Fernando couldn't lose the match, each time he came back !! When he won the match, we were so happy for him and he was happy :banana: The match ended very late, after 9.30 pm I think. Well, when, you want to see Gonzo, you have to deserve it :lol: After the match, this time, we didn't decide to wait for him, because as it was my last night there, we wanted to have dinner in Monte-Carlo, so we had dinner in a mexican restaurant and we visited Monte-Carlo by night.

I realised in that tournament that Fernando had a physical game, he always give 100 % on each point, he hit the ball very hard. I fell in love with his backhand, even if everyone thinks that his forehand was great. But, each time I was sitting on his backhand side so I fell in love :lol:
