Poor Gaston. It's painful to know he's in such a bad period for him. He must feel so down in his life, not only when it comes to tennis. This negative circle is lasting for long now and it sure is affecting him.

I wonder what is happening with him outside of the court, that can have an impact good or bad as to what goes on inside the court.

It's up to him as to how he wants to get out of this situation.

And the other way round is true too. Being so low in his professional life can't but have effects on him, outside tennis. That's a vicious circle. Hope he finds a way to sort all this out. He must be suffering hard from it.

Well if you are not being successful at work for whatever reasons, then it's natural that it can impact on the people around you in a negative manner.

One thing I did notice was that for whatever reason Pantera wasn't with him in Australia.

Yes, I had read about that. I wonder who's working with him, physically.

It's hard to see Gaston lost every match and you know he can do it better. I've been living in Switzerland so I don't see the matches and the problem he has, but I think the only thing we can do is cheer for him when possible and hope that he feel better in his life and on court. I know it is very difficult when you are down in your life to find a way out of this negative circle.

I wish Gaston goog luck on his way out of the negative Circle... and hope he will win soon some matches...

Bonadeo, a very good Argentine TV commentator, said during a match "There´s Gastón´s excellent physical trainer, "Profe" Menchón" and they showed an elderly guy who I think works with Zabaleta.
Maybe Pantera is dedicating himself full-time to Chela...

Yes, the RR format is really proving to be a joke and if they need any more evidence check out Buenos Aires.

The cesspool that Gaston is in is getting deeper and deeper and he got booed off the court as well, but it seems it was only a minority and other circumstances during the day helped as well.

Gaston needs to play a lot of matches to hit form, but he lacks confidence in a big way and yes he wanted to retire in 2004 after the Aus Open, look what happened.

He should go walking somewhere in Patagonia or Tierra del Fuego. The silence might kill him, but he needs his mind to be cleared of the negativity. It might be time to learn some meditation.

I wish there was a site or mailing address which he had access to, where we were able to show him all our support. I am sure he would appreciated and put boost his confidence. There has been so many guys which have come out of a dark phase including Gaston. Look had James Blake he thought he would never be able to play tennis again; he is now currently #6 in the world. Blake had both a physical and mental issue and like he says he had alot a support from friends and family. I just think Gaston has too much talent to let go to waste, he just has to stick in there even take some time off but not to give up.

He has to get his head right and then make some tough decisions, this is not something that just happened, it's been a gradual thing.

Absolutely....but I think what has made this come to this edge is the fact that he lost in a poor form right here in Buenos Aires and the crowd showed him an ugly face.....it's like a big WARNING sign in front of him...
He should not pay attention to anyone's expectations....because he's probably worried he's not showing his potential either to himself and the rest of the universe...
I agree with you GWH...he should travel to a place where he can consider his options...without other people interfering

I mean it's very difficult at the moment and this is the time where he needs the most support during these moments.

They say you really have to hit the lowest of the low, before rising again. Look at his Independiente mate Cañas look how he has come back and there are other examples.

Gaston is very honest and that can be a good or bad thing. If he feels shit or down he shows it and when he is happy, then he shows it. He will never be a poker player at all.

I think he should try and play in Acapulco and if that doesn't work, then skip Indian Wells and Miami and go somewhere else.
