Great win Gilles! :woohoo: :banana:

Good luck versus Davydenko! :bounce:

Honestly this doesn't surprise me :shrug:

It only slightly surprises me because Muller was playing pretty awful coming into this slam too. He lost to Alun Jones in Adelaide.

01-16-2007, 11:12 AM
good win Gilles

Davydenko will be a tough one...

Muller has a strange habit of beating 1 time GS champs in the early rounds of Slams. Nadal at Wim, Roddick at USO, now Gaudio in AO.

Gaudio :wavey:

01-16-2007, 12:18 PM
I wasnt even aware he was playing:o.

Always honest, Gastón Gaudio talked about his unexpected defeat in Australian Open against Gilles Muller. "I didn't play well, in fact I played awful. Never entered into the game, the court was too fast and that's it" said Gato, without getting too much complicated with his result.

On the court he said one of his quotes: "I'm playing in slow motion and see all going at 3000 km/h". Then he added: "It has been like this since a long time and have been telling this about a year. I don't know the reason, I'm not here, I can't make things work and don't know the reason. It's more of the same, and I am worried since a year".

When asked about something positive from his defeat, the former RG champion said "good thing is that I'm going home early"

Gaston :haha:

WTF was that? and with a bagel included :ras:

01-16-2007, 05:57 PM
Geeze. I doesn't seem like Gaudio wins anything anymore. What a disappointment. The guy has serious talent, but his game has just fallen apart.

01-16-2007, 06:05 PM
the saddest (and hilarious) thing is that he doesn't care for it either, and that is the reason he's drowning in that way.

01-16-2007, 06:08 PM
Gaston :retard:

01-16-2007, 06:16 PM
Gaston is the bagel king :lol:

What a waste of talent.

Someone had to take Muller out of his slump... of course it had to be Gaudio.

01-16-2007, 06:38 PM
Gaston is a prime candidate for early retirement. Doesnt seem too thrilled with the idea of actually playing tennis matches and that just might be a problem for a pro tennis player.

01-16-2007, 06:45 PM
can gaudio win a match on a surface that isnt clay anymore?

Voo de Mar

Gaudio is finished, I'm afraid :(

01-16-2007, 09:41 PM
Gaudio needs glasses

01-16-2007, 09:47 PM
On the court he said one of his quotes: "I'm playing in slow motion and see all going at 3000 km/h".


I think he has watched too many sci fi movies ;)

Gaudio is not the first tennis player to make an anology with speed/driving cars.

Tursunov after beating Martin in the Sunrise challenger final and comparing him to Karlovic: “It’s definitely a bit easier to play someone slower. It’s like you drive a car on the freeway and then you come back on the city street, and you still drive the same speed.”

Gaudio you idiot....

01-17-2007, 02:36 AM
For all the lamenting about Gaudio, why is anyone that surprised? Sure, Muller isn't exactly a top notch player, but since when has Gaudio been anything other than suspect on hard courts?

The real waste of talent here is Gilles Muller. He's been a real bust of a former junior #1. If he gets his head screwed on straight, it would be interesting to see what he could do, but like Kristian Pless before him, sometimes these top juniors don't pan out. 2001 was a particularly miserable year...Muller, Tipsarevic, Dabul, Soderling, Wang, Ouahab, Falla, Valent, Echagaray, F. Mayer
