He gives up too early, for instance after he has been broken in a set
So you followed him in 99 and 2000 then? He lost to Berlocq and Ramirez Hidalgo in awful fashion this year. Gaston has not been in form for a while, this is not new.
Well there are plenty of interviews in our News thread and you should read some of them closely and then there will be some insight as to the way he is.
Thing is he is not a Cañas, a Muster or Mantilla, and some things are in built and others have to be learned.
Can't just be come along for the ride, when everything is good, that is the safe and easy option, as Choupi said. No matter what anyone in here thinks, Gaston is the one who feels the worst about going on court and embarrassing himself, not us, not his coach, not his family, not his friends, they can give all the support he needs, but he is the one who has to turn it around and no one else.
