Re: Acapulco 2009

1 win and 6 loss in finals It starts to be a problem especially it's always in two sets.

He will arrive in France on Monday morning and leave for Ostrava in the afternoon so he can start practicing on Tuesday with the others.
But it sounds like he will be the 5th man anyway. He needed to win Acapulco to be back in the race.

Re: Acapulco 2009

Hard to call that "a great achievement", it would have been a really poor performance to lose to the guys he's played on his road to the final.

People say Almagro was great, but GaŽl really wasn't pressuring him at all, the very few times he did Almagro wasn't looking that safe imo.
So frustrating to see GaŽl crumble like that in finals, I don't get it, the PŲrtschach and the Vienna finals were so poor too - not one single set won against Monaco, Petzschner and Almagro! He says it himself:
World number 10 Monfils was disappointed with his performance.
"When I get to the final I have a hard time," he said. "Today in particular I didn't handle it well. I wasn't aggressive enough but it's something I will work on and hopefully get better at.

Re: Acapulco 2009

Especially since he didn't sleep for a week, too busy drinking and partying with hot mexican women

He definitely has a second tattoo on his left wrist. Seriously, GaŽl

Gael At least he made it to the final, which obviously is a great achievement!

He admits in his post-match interview he was too defensive, he wasn't hitting the ball very well today and he seems to have a little problem in finals.
Indeed!

Horrible last game, he had his chance in the rallies, but made 3 UE.

I'm not pissed at all to have gotten up to see this, GaŽl...

Re: Acapulco 2009

6-4 5-3*, we'll need a little help from Nico here...


His dropshots are better than usual (= the two dropshots I've seen).
Solid hold, but Nico didn't look like he was trying too hard. 6-4 *5-4.

Re: Acapulco 2009

I woke up, so I got up to watch.

He's choking! One set and one break down already, he's really developing a problem with finals.
It's not like Almagro is playing out of his mind, at least since I've been watching.
Rasheed is there - with a superb tan, I think he has enjoyed the little trip to Acapulco.
The return is poor, the BH nothing special, the movement not as good as it can be...

Re: Acapulco 2009

We make a great fanbase, not even watching him play his first 500 final.
I won't watch it either unless I have a sleepless night.
