Well first of all congratulations to Berdych, he was the better player in the 1st set and as for the 2nd set he was better then as well and managed not to lose focus when Gaston decided to check out of the tournament.

It seems he has a phobia of getting past the QFs in a non-clay event, but as for what went on in his head, who knows and who cares. Maybe he realised his fate and decided to not to fight and as for the crowd booing and jeering, well it was understandable. I mean when he consistently starts serve/volleying then that should be a clear sign, that something funny is going on.

A good tournament ruined by a bad last set.

What else can I add? That there's been a match only in the 1st set. That Berdych has been strong to resist the fact that he was playing a guy who stopped playing in the 2nd set, and it's not as easy as it seems. That the crowd has booed and that it was logical, after seeing David Ferrer fight the way he had fought, getting so close to victory and not on course for Shangaï. For them, seeing the 7th seeded player, playing his ticket to Shangaï, offering such a disastrous performance in the 2nd set has been interpreted as a true lack of respect. What happened? Got no clue. The mind will remain mysterious. I mean it's not like we didn't know it could happen. We're disappointed, sad, disgusted for some...but that's the way things have turned out and there's nothing we can do to change anything to it. Only Gaston has the key to those situations. Let's focus now on his alternate ticket for Shangaï. And most of all, this may not be the place, but congratulations to Tomas.

What the hell was going on,Gaston? Even though I want Ivan to play in TMC so much,I don't want to see his mental breakdown again. I'm sure he can hold serve,Tomas made errors too,but he abandoned in the 2nd set,he didn't run,and French crowd booed him after he lost the crappy match. They were too harsh!

Now I hope Hewitt will pull out in TMC.

Re: Last Tango in Paris Thread all the Best for trying to make Shanghai

Rosie, that's what I was thinking. Gaston WILL go, won't he? We still don't know if Lleyton will actually show up or if he does, he may have to leave and Rogi won't really know how his foot will feel until he actually plays a match or two. As for AA, whatever...

Bet you'll see him before then - he'll be going to Shanghai as the alternate, and with all the injuries/possible withdrawals I'm sure he'll get to play! I'm sad that Gaston didn't put up a better fight in that second set tonight - but well played Berdych and good luck against Stepanek tomorrow.

Re: Last Tango in Paris Thread all the Best for trying to make Shanghai

Congratulations, Gastón!!!
After that dicey situation, 0-3 in the first set, he won 12 of the next 14 games!!!
I think Ginepri's "bad day" was partly caused by Gastón's demoralizing him - everything he tried to do was counteracted by Gastón's creativeness.
It became a tennis exhibition of Gastón's. In the end he was feeling so confident he could do no wrong!

Merde again, Gastón!!!

Re: Last Tango in Paris Thread all the Best for trying to make Shanghai

Obviously this was the match I chose to watch last night, and had held off following it online, so had no idea what was coming. Like GWH, the first three games . . . I thought oh no, and hoped he wouldn't give it all up, and it wouldn't be too ugly.

He stayed with it though - the commentators for a bit at first were talking as if he wasn't going all out, referred to the match with Monfils last week - but to me it seemed more of just needing the time to get his grounding, not that he wasn't trying. Gaudio made some beautiful shots, even ventured to the net a couple of times, and yes, it did get ugly at times, but on Ginepri's side as his game just disappeared.

I had a laugh at Gaudio's reaction at the end - he seemed almost in disbelief that he had done it so easily. Very nice to see him get this kind of win and hoping for a good match again today.
