As for Gastão, let's hope he doesn't end up the next Nuno Marques. Talent for Top 20, matches given away poorly every week. It was so heart-breaking that someone so talented was 10 times a bigger choker than Mathieu is.
Trulli that was last year.
If Rui wins the RTP Tournament, then it's all good. It is because he was the best. But okay I admit it, I have a soft spot for Fred ( always did ), and I would be thrilled to see in Estoril.
Gastão can be much better then Nuno, he has the talent for that no doubt about it. But only time will tell us that.
Gosh I miss Nuno, why does he have to be in the North?
