Exactly, Sparko. :yeah:

Fernando shouldn't have problems with Dmitry (at least I hope so).
Then Hrbaty or Mayer ... bad memories come to my mind when I hear that last name :lol: but I'm more worried about Hrbaty but as we all know we have to go one step at a time so VAMOS FERNANDO!!! BEAT DMITRY!!!!!

Tough one for Massu, though. (But Davydenko's carrying an injury, so you never know...)

You are all very confident with this draw, personally, I don't think that this first round, is very easy for him. Tursunov is a dangerous player and Fernando must be a bit tired about his good week in Roma. So, we'll see if he can carry on winning matches. And players like Hrbaty, Verdasco, Coria can be dangerous and Ljubicic, Gaudio are around.

Head to Head : Gonzalez leads 2 -0
Last meetings on hard

Vamos y buena suerte :bounce:

I agree with you, Tursunov can be a dangerous player but not so much on clay, he even said it that he doesn't like clay at all and can't play well on it.
And about Fernando being tired I'm worried about that, he must be definitely at least a little bit tired and that's also one the reason why I'm starting not to like so much the idea of him having also to play Dusseldorf just before Roland Garros.

Let's hope he will feel good in Hamburg.

Let's hope he will feel good in Hamburg.

Regarding Dusseldorf, I have never liked this "tournament" because it's just before Roland-Garros. Yesterday, I met one of my friend and we were talking about Dusseldorf and we worried a little bit about our players, we fear a final Germany/Chile. Well, were are always worried 15 days before the start of the French Rendez-vous, crucial days.

Regarding Hamburg, yes, Tursunov isn't dangerous on clay, but we never know. If Fernando lost early in Hamburg and if Chile doesn't win the WTC, it won't be a problem for me, I think he'll stay in the top 10 until Wimbledon, so he doesn't need to go far in Hamburg. If he could slow down :lol: I just want him to be in a good shape for Roland-Garros. Would be sad if he couldn't play at 100 % in Paris !! Sorry I'm a bit selfish, he he !!

When Fernando was signing autographs and then leaving the court he started talking with a chilean guy that was there and they agreed to have lunch. (I think that's what Fernando said, I couldn't hear everything :lol: )

Hamburg, 16 May 2006

Press Conference with FERNANDO GONZALEZ

Gonzalez - Tursunov 6:4, 6:3

Q: How do you feel about the match?

A: I'm happy because I won. It was tough to play, it was a little bit windy and a little bit cold. Especially coming from Rome, there was much of a difference. But it takes a few days, I just got here on Sunday, so I don't have enough practice yet, but with this match I will be much better for tomorrow.

Q: What is your coach situation?

A: Nobody at the moment, but I am looking.

Q: Is Stepanki a possibility?

A: Maybe, but I don't have an official coach yet, I'm looking for one.

Q: In weather like this, you don't like a clay match better than a hard court match?

A: Yes, because the ball was heavy, it's tough to win the points, especially after Rome last week, the court was really different there and the court was really dry.

Q: Sometimes it can take away the advantage of the better player.

A: You have to hit maybe 5 or 6 shots more than last week. But after a few days you can play better and better.

Q: How difficult is it for someone who grew up on clay court now that you have to play a certain number of hard court tournaments. There was a time when you could have been a clay court specialist, but there is no such a thing anymore.

A: Yes, but I feel much better on hard court now. Last year I played good on grass, I played good on hard court, and I didn't play good on clay. This year I'm playing good on clay. So you never know.

Q: Is there anybody out there about whom you could say, he is a great player and he came from clay?

A: There are players who win 70% of their points on clay, but most of them can play everywhere, because clay court is a bit faster and hard court is a bit slower.

Q: Who would you say has the greatest difference between their game on clay and their game off clay?

A: Maybe the guy I played here …

Q: Who is the clay player who can't adapt? It used to be Albert Costa, for example.

A: Gaudi maybe, but I'm sure he can also win his matches on hard court. He was a semifinals last year. I think we can all play everywhere.

Q: There hasn't been a no. 1 player who came from clay since Borg. Do you think Nadal has the capacity to be the next one who could be no. 1 for a long time?

A: Yes, obviously he is incredible for his age. Because he's no. 2 and he won 10 titles.

Q: He can even beat Federer.

A: Yes, he can beat him, but it takes Federer only one or two hours to win a match, and it takes Rafael two or three hours. Maybe it's okay in one tournament, but it's a lot in six months.

Q: He has a style of play where he goes so hard for every point. He is 19 years old, is this the kind of thing that can wear down his body in the long run?

A: Maybe, but he's good, he's incredible, I played him last week. The good players on clay make you play one more shot always, but Rafael makes you play 2 shots. So it's really tough to play him, especially on clay.

Q: Is he playing right now the best you ever seen him?

A: Yes, because I played him three years ago and I played him last week. He was playing really good.

Q: He was just on fire last week.

A: Yes, I tried to hit my shots, but I had to hit maybe 7 shots to win a point. With other players I have to hit maybe 3 or 4.

Please let Fernando have an easy next Round. My favorites are dropping out of Hamburg faster than they did in Rome and I didn't think that was possible :eek: And, of course, Rafa didn't go to the Tournament at all--not that I blame him or Roger for not going after the Match they played. Vamos Fernando :)

Mae - I think Fernando can beat Hrbaty - he's a very good player, but this year hasn't been his best - I think injury problems.

VAMOS FER!

(too bad Stefanki is a possibility :mad: I admit I don't anything about him other than what I've read here but NO ONE has had a good thing to say about him from what I can tell so just say NO to him Fena!!! )

05-17-2006, 04:25 AM
Why bad that Stefanski will be Feña's coach??? :confused: He is a good coach, maybe a bit retired from the circuit, but he brought Marcelo Rios to be n° 1 of the world. The only fact is that I don't know if he's the right type of coach for Feña or no.
