Gaudio wins a match at Wimbledon and Rosie watching that is hilarious.

It's the 2nd match Vale as he defeated Guzman in 2003.

I just saw an interview with Gastón on ESPN. Hilarious! He insists that he feels very uncomfortable on grass, but that hey! who said you have to be good at everything anyway? And that the main thing is that he is there and that he prepared for it. That he said a lot of daft things on court, and that then something amused him and he got the giggles. That London is very nice, BUT... And that the best thing about the match was that he won! (If ESPN happens to post the video I´ll give you the link).
In the meantime, let´s face the match against Labadze as he does, without too many expectations, but happy if he should happen to win!

VAMOS GASTON, SURPRISE US ALL!!!

Hola guys Well I'm almost ashamed to tell you this - I only watched this match til 5-5 in the first - and then I had to switch courts for David Ferrer - I know Elea will understand why I was hoping for longer with Gastón, but the girl in the WTA match before Ferrer's got injured and had to retire in the first set - so everything changed rapidly.

Anyway - from what I saw - Gastón came out and was on fire! His backhand was working well and, to me, he seemed to be moving well on the horrid, slippery grass. He was 5-1 up very quickly - helped, I have to say, by Faurel being really tense and nervous playing a seed at Wimbledon - he couldn't do a thing right for the first few games. But after that he seemed to lose his inhibitions a bit and relax, he began to come to the net, and to chip and charge more, and that's when Gastón lost all those games in succession to end up back at 5-5. Also - at 5-3 a girl fainted quite close to me in the front row - and that definately upset Gastón's concentration with all the First Aid people arriving etc, though, of course, it was the same for Faurel too.

Gastón looked pretty good in his all-white ensemble with matching bandana He did seem a bit like a "fish out of water" out on Court 4 though - he didn't seem to be comfortable or happy out there - even though there was no reason for him not to be - all in the mind I think - he hates grass so he refuses to enjoy himself out there He seemed a little "sulky" because the crowd were supporting Faurel and not him - but that's typical of us Brits to support the underdog - Faurel was being thrashed and then pulled back - of course the uncommitted Brits were cheering for him - plus there are a hell of a lot more French people in London than there are Argentines! One thing I noticed - seems Franco isn't here - only the usual Fitness Trainer - I guess he has given him a couple of weeks off because as he doesn't think he'll get far enough to need a coach here.

Anyway - at 5-5 I had to go and I followed the rest of the score from a scoreboard above the court - hope you are not too disappointed in me.

Thanks for the report Rosie. How could we be disappointed? You've been there and share what you saw. That's really nice from you. Thanks for that.

According to what one of my friend said to me yesterday evening, Gaston was really better after this first set... he smiled and laughed a lot and didn't stop talking to himself (surprising! ) and to Pantera

"Halo effect" - benefit of being highly-ranked... Make the most of it while it lasts!

Well, at least he had you there, though not for the whole match; it should have encouraged him...

If Gaston wins the roller-coaster Labadze and if the opponent is our national no.1 (or 2?) Van Gemmerden, I will be able to watch the game on Dutch TV! Well, Fish seems to be "in water" again, though....

OK, Gaston's R2 match begins in a while. Vamos, Gaston @ grass!


16:47 (pm) Almost forgot that this Labadze was once a losing finalist at Wimbledon....

Gaston is going to lose. I was honestly expecting he could win whis one, but now I don't think he can do it.

Rosie, thanks for the report.

Gaston should be able to make the plane to Germany tonight.

He has got to the 2nd round and that is good enough.
