Not suprised, the bloke doesn't have the heart or passion for challenger tour tennis on the clay.

Somany players want it more, he is decent on hardcourt but he'll never be able to be a regular fixture in the top 70 or 80.

He needs to go away and rediscover his passion for the game, atm he seems burned out.

Losing back to back matches to McGee and Gerard Granollers must have taken its toll. The Guido Pella I know would not struggle to beat them.

We gonna see what's going on...

In before the "bye mug/pusher" comments.

He showed good promise last season, especially on clay. I remember that he had a good run in Düsseldorf and he could also get the occasional win outside clay (I think he won the ATP challenger finals on indoor hard).

Another blow to Argentinian tennis. It must be its 432nd blow in the last two seasons: Nalbandian retired, Del Potro severely injured, Monaco slumping, Mayer not improving, Zeballos back into sucking. Besides Berlocq and Delbonis having decent seasons, Argentina is having a horrible season. Thank God they drew Israel in the DC playoffs or they could even get relegated.

eh, not a terrible loss for our tennis really. Schwartzman and Arguello are both younger (21) and almost top 100, and Bagnis, who is 24 like Pella and almost inside the top 100 too. And as you said, we got Israel in the DC, with Delbonis/Berlocq/Mayer we should be okay.

Hope Guido realizes what he wants soon, and good luck to him in the future.

When Pella won the Challenger Tour Finals it seemed that he might be able to move on to greater things. But then for some reason it never happened.
If he's as fed up with tennis as he says in that article he's definitely doing the right thing.

Playing at home on clay - yeah. But on a fast indoor hardcourt in Tel Aviv? Not so sure.

So Pella's "retirement" lasted less than a month. Average break for some top players. Playing main draw in Bogota. Johnny Groove of the ATP tour. Exitos Guido!

maybe he figured how hard it is to get a normal job in real life (for fair money) :p

nah, seriously, when i was writing article about him, i found quotes where he said he was having breakdown playing futures in these horrible conditions that typically happen in futures. seems like he's a fragile chap mentally
