I have been cheering for Argentina World Cup Team since 1990, and so glad to know that Gaston was there to witness the last match that Argentina WC team played Mexico, and he will be there to cheer again.

That was just my opinion, doesn't mean it is what I want, or that is what's going to happen.
And I never said I was sure, it's Football, no one can be sure.

35 points doesn't really amount to that much at all, it doesn't really help him either way.

The football was more of an interest in reality, but he played a couple of matches here and it's neither here nor there.

The match is not yet over but this Wimbledon was anyway positive for Gaston after all. He gained some points, which will make a difference when the Masters Cup arrives as Mel said, as well as some confidence in other surface than clay; and he will have watched some WC football matches live.

Good news is that the summer clay season is around the corner!

Re: Will Gaston make it to Wimbledon this year?

No I am not shocked at all, I was just expecting a surprise. Plus I hate to see my favorites losing, no matter in what surface they are playing. I should know better anyway.

But nevermind, I'll live through this.

This is Gaston's Forum and all, but seing Marat and Feña playing on grass makes me laugh.

Labadze can actually play, he just chooses not to a lot of the time. Gaston doesn't like big servers and Labadze has an excellent serve with plenty of variation and Gaston on a surface he hates, well it would be far from a shock if he lost.

This tournament held no expectations and has reached them.

He has got to the 2nd round and that is good enough.

Re: Will Gaston make it to Wimbledon this year?

Gaston is going to lose. I was honestly expecting he could win whis one, but now I don't think he can do it.

Rosie, thanks for the report.

"Halo effect" - benefit of being highly-ranked... Make the most of it while it lasts!

Well, at least he had you there, though not for the whole match; it should have encouraged him...

If Gaston wins the roller-coaster Labadze and if the opponent is our national no.1 (or 2?) Van Gemmerden, I will be able to watch the game on Dutch TV! Well, Fish seems to be "in water" again, though....

OK, Gaston's R2 match begins in a while. Vamos, Gaston @ grass!


16:47 (pm) Almost forgot that this Labadze was once a losing finalist at Wimbledon....

According to what one of my friend said to me yesterday evening, Gaston was really better after this first set... he smiled and laughed a lot and didn't stop talking to himself (surprising! ) and to Pantera
