As for "coaching", whenever I looked at Team Gaston, it did not look like Franco was talking - of course I could be wrong but I was sitting closer to Franco than the umpire was.
We all have a day like this when nothing works, everything is against you - at least you feel that way. I was/am just sad, watching a match like this. Good news is that there will be another day. I hope Gaston will have a few more good wins in doubles. Vamos Gaston & Max!
Thanks for putting it into perspective for us, Reiko!
When one hasn´t seen the match it sounds like a catastrophe, but in fact it´s just another game and who knows what tomorrow can bring? I hope it doesn´t affect Gastón too much!
Vamos Gastón and Max in doubles!
