[QUOTE=bjorn4tennis92]he should have done better at RG. he won alot of titles, but totally screwed up at the US open. Hes a weird player. Hes someone who can have trouble with anyone, but is still really good. QUOTE]
He would probably agree with you ...
In a TV interview he was asked to enumerate the three worst and best things that had happened to him in his tennis year, and he said:

Worst:
RG - he knew he should have got further, and all the time around RG, until he reached his form again.
The US Open
Third, I think it was Bercy

Best:
Final against González in Viña del Mar
Kitzbuhel
Match against González in the MC

he should have done better at RG. he won alot of titles, but totally screwed up at the US open. Hes a weird player. Hes someone who can have trouble with anyone, but is still really good. i love his game and he did awesome this year, especially at the masters. i want him to win RG in 06. He can do good at the Aussie open but he has to want it and not get all down and pissed. i want him to at least get to the quarters in melborne, win rg, survive wimbledon?, and make 4th round at us open. and do real real well in all the clay events. GOOD LUCK GASTON!!!!!!!!!!

I congratulate Gaston on winning 5 titles in 2005 and making the TMC Shanghai, getting to the SF! It was nice to be able to see a little more of him on TV!

For 2006, I just want Gaston to be healthy, to follow whatever schedule he feels suitable, and to continue to win some more titles [a TMS w be great!]. I hope he comes to Toronto so I can see him again!

I agree with you. I think George summed it all up very well, and thanks for this thread!
From what Gastón said during the Vilas Cup, and something Franco said, it would seem that he has the firm intention of concentrating on the major events and not playing in so many tournaments. This is opposed to what he said 18 months ago when he stated he "needed to play a lot" and that he used it as the best form of training. But I imagine that after this strenuous year he´s changed his mind and accepts that the very fact of competing is stressful and leaves him mentally tired when he needs to be at his best. Whatever, here´s wishing Gastón a wonderful year!!!

I hope Gaston does play a sensible schedule, then again what works for him, isn't the same for everyone and he should know his body himself.

He'll play the Latin American circuit, more than likely and is starting in Viña, then Buenos Aires is up in the air and I can see him playing Acapulco.

Just hope he brings his best tennis when it counts.

Not sure about the football thing but I definately think he should take it a rest period between the important European clay court season (culminating in RG) and the Summer clay court swing - which may not be as important prestige-wise but can earn him valuable points in places like Stuttgart and Kitz.

As for Buenos Aires - I totally agree with Gastón's stance on that one and I think he should hold out for what he believes in and miss it if necessary. If you read the Argentine Press regularly as I do - you will see there is so much Coria and Nalbandan worship there (especially Nalbandian since the TMC - it is quite nauseating in my opinion) - and our Gastón seems to be a forgotten man there Gastón won a Grand Slam and appeared in Bs As last year when the others didn't bother to, and yet hs loyalty and hard work seem to have been dismissed to worship the new "tennis gods" - so if he thinks it is time to make a stand and keep away - then good luck to him in my opinion. I do think he'll end up playing there eventually though!

Other than that - I just want him to be healthy and happy - to be fulfilled in his tennis and more importantly in his personal life, and to continue entertaining us for a while yet

Our Nalbandian deserves all the worshiping, he won the TMC against all odds - so I think it's only fair all the attention he has got lately. He deserves it. Sorry, but I had to say this....anyway this is about Gaston - not about Guillermo or David.

I just want to wish the best of luck to Gaston in 2006. No matter which tournaments he chooses to play - I'm sure he'll always make a wise decision, and one that makes him happy.
And if he could come to defend his title here in Estoril, I would apreciate it, of course.

And, just to be a bit selfish, I wish to see him in all the tourneys -well most of them- that I'm gonna attend.

well, but a traning on clay court can help him
