That's from a player party, where some players tried to be others. That's Frederico 'Azarenka' Gil. :P

Btw, he'll play 2 Challengers next weeks. Vamos.

Won 6-4 6-7(7) 6-4. The lack of competition was obvious, needed 9 MP to close the match. Had 5 MP on the 2nd set.

Clearly he still has serious mental issues which seems permanet, at least for playing tennis. He is almost out of top 1000 now, which means that it will be hard even to enter futures MD. And the worst part is that his current level of tennis is indeed qualifying futures level, meaning it will be a huge number of steps to even dreaming of getting close to his average level.

He can still be very usefull to portuguese tennis. He can become a coach like Frederico Marques did. Marques retired at a very young age, understanding he couldn't give more as a player and he never was a good one to begin with. He started a partnership with a young Joao Sousa and look where they are now! top 40 an ATP tittle, when Joao Sousa wasn't even supposed to be that great player in the early stages as a pro. And Marques is even younger than Gil (27 years old, and started with Sousa at 24!!) Gil could help one of many young guns we have now appearing like Silva, Domingues or even Mensurado and maybe.

Maybe you Ramsey who claims to be a friend of Gil can say your thoughts about this idea and about the current state of Gil, mentally.
It's really complicated. It's complex. Give him time, he won't retire, for sure. His tennis is already there again, but there are A LOT of mental "barriers" that he needs to beat. He's going, step by step, slowly. He has to climb the Everest, but he'll make it. Don't expect big results soon, just expect to Gil find himself on court.

It's so much things going on about him. He's getting better and better, find the good road, trying. Failing, going in another way. Give him time.

And Gil wouldn't be a good coach right now.

Re: Frederico Gil

After losing 6-7 in the 3rd against Golding last week (Golding won the tournament and Gil even was 5-3 up against him in the 3rd), Gil is back this week and won the 1st round 6-1 7-6(8).

Keep going Fred

Re: Frederico Gil

GSM Gil! I missed this words!

He started in Vale do Lobo with a victory. 7-5 6-3, played solid tennis but very away from his best. Mental he needs a lot of confidence. Still, a victory is a victory.
