This is for the Aussie fans out there:cool:
Do you think our lanky mate Guccione can really do any damage on the ATP tour & even win titles:confused: or is he destined to be a journeyman hovering outside the Top #100:confused:

Chris recently won two challenger titles on South American clay [Columbia & Ecuador]~>> also he`s won some big matches for AUS in the Davis Cup this year & he`s beaten Ferrero twice... The win at the challenger in Columbia was impressive as he took out Canas in the final:p

Below I`ve pasted his playing activity for 2006~ for anyone who`s curious about Guccione`s progress;)

What a coincidence~>> is he like Poo Poo Scud Dud:confused: .. I mean what are the chances of me catching him sipping on a Cafe Latte in Lygon Street Melbourne:cool: :confused:

Top 50? Unlikely, but surely he'll have a better career than Todd Reid, who was painted as the next big thing to come from Australia before him. :p

Nick Lindahl is the next hope for a top 50 Aussie it seems.

Don`t suppose you were involved in all those Mafia murders in Chappel St a couple of year back?? I thought you may have known somebody who knew somebody who got shot by somebody driving a red Ferrari:eek:

Anyway if it`s good enough for the Poo Scud Dud then I guess it`s good enought for Xristos;)

BTW,~ I once went out with a cute tennis bunny Italian gal from Chappel St myself.. she told me she wanted to be the next Jelena Dokic:sad:

Alrighty then~ if our paths cross maybe we should share a pizza at Dominos, then I can get to know that hot gal of yours a little better:devil:

Actually it`s unlikely to happen anytime soon though~ since I`m living in Fukuoka->> before you take the piss it`s not meant to be a swear word:angel:
