too bad for Gaston... hope he gets better soon so he can play tennis again... when I saw he was going to play Bermuda, I immediately wanted to hop on a plane and see him... so it worked out that he didn't play it in the end!

Well as for his withdrawing from the event, well he could have done it earlier. Don't know what kind of illness it was.

Facts are this, he didn't retire from matches, because he was playing shit. He was offered wildcards at the Italian clay challengers, but he refused the offer, as he wasn't going to play. So take what you want from that.

I believe that sickness was the reason of his withdrawal. I have to disagree with certain posters who implied that lack of respect to the tournament organisers was the true reason.

I would be a liar though if I didn't admit that perhaps the kind of his illness wouldn't be a problem for someone who plays regularly in events. Someone who tries to find the momentum to come back can easily be distracted by "small" problems (that normally could be easily solved in one way or another). I understand Gaston perfectly. And his "excuses" for a delayed comeback as well...


Gaston's reactions seem too familiar to me.
Thank you Getta for coming out in Gastón´s defense so lucidly! I read some very unpleasant catty remarks in the Bermuda thread... Even if I weren´t a fan of Gastón´s, I believe in always giving people the benefit of the doubt. If he were OK he would be there!

Gaston isn't here anymore...sorry for you ...I just saw that in the draw...there is a LL... surently he just forgot to say NO to the organisation of Bermuda...

sorry sorry sorry I understand your reaction, it was the same about Coria last year in a Ostrava challenger when he was in a draw and then NO...

Hope he enjoys to play tennis again. No matter who's in front of him. Glad to have him back on court

So happy to hear about this. Injury was not the only problem he had to overcome. His mind should also have been preoccupied with the fear that he must rise to the challenge of his enhanced hopes...

Hope Gaston is going to enjoy the tournament regardless of whom his opponent is.

Gaston is back on tour and is confirmed in the draw at the moment to play Bermuda.

Just happy to see him play tennis again irrespective of the result.

He plays Odesnik in the 1st round.

Re: Better to die on your feet, than live on your knees, just do your best in Viña

Thank you for all the welcomes :-) I am aware that it may be a bit selfish for me (all of us)
to not want him to retire.... but... we're only humans, right? :-)
And yes, I do want all the best for him, all of the happiness of the world, but I wish if there is this tiny will, small feeling that he shouldn't retire that keeps him up at night... to give it another shot...

Now you may say, yeah, he has been giving it another shots for a few years now, still nothing happend. True.

But, I don't know what you all think, but I would like to hear your opinion on this one: should Gaston change his choach? What do you think?

I mean, I like Franco, he's a nice guy, was very kind to me and my friend while we were in Umag, but... when Gaston started to shout things (during the match vs. Ramirez Hidalgo) about how laim he is, mentioned his mom few times... I hated it that Franco didn't say a thing, acctually, he was laughing. Why he just doesn't tell Gaston: "Shut up and play". Because I think that whenever he starts shouting and talking during his match, he loses the most important thing that you need in tennis: concentration.
I know that Franco knows Gaston for a lifetime, and they are friends, and I am aware that I am writing this "quick reply" from my prespective and don't have a clue about what is acctually going wrong with Gaston, but...I'll dare to say that my opinion is that Gaston, if he wants to come back, needs a firm coach hand, someone who'll he listen and do what he says and be obedien to, and not a friend.

Sorry for my grammar mistakes, and ... yes, I am aware that this is situation with two different sides of the story (retire and life happily ever after - wish him that from the bottom of my heart,btw. try to come back with changing his way of thinking, coach maybe, so some radical changes - and prove to himself that he is a phenomen because he needs to prove nothing to noone and spend a few years in the top ten where he needs to be. There is a possibilty also that he doesn't retire this year, tries for another, anything doesn't cange and he retires in coming years- it's the risk. Aand the decision is his. I am sure he'll make a good one. With all my love for him and his tennis, if he wakes up in the morning and relizes there is no flame inside his heart to do it all - to come back- I'll be the first one to congratulate the man for everything he's done and thank him for all joy his personality and tennis brought in my life.)

This is just so complicated and I get so emotional everytime I think of Gasty-situation that I'll go to sleep now.... :-)

Kisses for everyone

Vale, I agree with you. I too hate to think of tennis without Gaston, but he is human just like us. I will respect his decision regarless of my own selfish reasons. He has taught me alot about just being human, no matter who you are. He is real, 100% authentic
