David started well, playing a good first set, but then he wasn't precise and Gastón took advantage of it. It was a very nice match from Gastón
But I'm sad cause when David lost and he had to give the speech he indicated with his head that he couldn't make it, so the corwd applauded him even more and he started to cry It was very emotional, and then Gastón thanked the crowd and mentioned David's situation and how brave he was. Luis Lobo did the same thing and went with David out of the court.
Lobo has been taking care of David during the whole exhibition, I could see it yesterday when David was watching the prior matches and Luis hugged him and kissed him and spent all the time talking to him. The crowd was great, very respectful and thankful for his fight and spirit.
And finally, I want to congratulate Gastón for this win, he trully deserved it
Reading about David crying is bringing tears into my eyes too. I feel so sad for him. But I also admire how brave he has been to come here and play, and I'm glad the crowd showed their appreciation of him, that was a lovely gesture of support. And well done to Gaston for his win and being so nice to David in his speech.

Thanks jazz_girl and Rosie for all the articles.

Re: Copa Argentina de Tennis

I'm watching the match again, this time on tv, and I remembering things now that I forgot to mention like David's service. It has improved a lot, and he made a couple of aces with his second service. And some other with his first. I'm sure he's been working on it.
As for Infantino, I kept on looking at him like I wanted to tell him somthing, but I didn't know what to say. And he looked at me like he was expecting something lol! Next time, I guess

It is sad to see him lose another final, but I just hopes he takes the positives away from this experience.

I'm feeling really well now. I only slept three hours, and because I went to the tournament I didn't have time to study, so I did it all today! I had my last two finals of the year and I passed them both! I have no idea how I did it! LOL!!!

Gastón might be a clay court especialist, but he plays really well on hardcourts. He even sent Federer to a tie break, and not many can say that. Just ask Hewitt or Roddick
I think it was a very positive tournament for David in spite of the final. He gained a lot of respect and new fans, I can assure you that.
This is what Gastón said at the end:
"Quiero decir que hay que valorar mucho que David haya venido después de lo que le pasó. Quiero que todos lo aplaudamos mucho"
"I want to say that we have to value a lot David coming here after what happened to him. I want that everyone applaudes him a lot."
Is true Jazz...Yestaerday in the tv i saw a lot of people cheering for him, lot of voices sreaming Vamos David, Fuerza, and things like that, and in the end, everybody was with him.....Was a nice tournament, for the players, and the crow....was amazing!!!!
For Lobo and the whole organization

spectators already did that to him, and even gave him more. Hope next time, you can watch him raise the trophee live, Jazz. Good memory for share.
