Gaston is in the squad for the tie against Slovakia, but it's not important if he plays or not, the team is more important and the fact they have to come together for the common cause.

So good luck to the team of:
David Nalbandian
Guillermo Coria
Mariano Puerta
Gaston Gaudio

and legend coach Alberto Mancini

I hope the guys aren't too distracted from all the beautiful women in Slovakia.

I trust them! I know they won't let themselves distract by all those splendid creatures. They have an aim and they will stick to it. But after the tie, that's another story! ;)

Anyway, good luck to the whole team. Vamos Argentina! :D

They’re not going to send models as ballgirls, are they?

Beware of Hrbaty’s shirt which have two holes (or windows?) on the back. Bizarre wearing can cause confusion too.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

No, the local ladies in the crowd are good enough.

Hrbaty's Davis Cup play bothers me more than the shirt, though both have huge potential for damage.

Re: Making Halusky in Slovakia Davis Cup Thread

Beck and Coria first that match is going to be huge and just hope Coria can do the job here and if he can it will give them a huge platform for the rest of the tie.

The team is most important and that's the key and it will be interesting after Day 1 if Argentina are 1-1 then the doubles will be of huge importance as I expect Hrbaty to beat Coria, just hope it doesn't come down to the 5th match.

It's a pity that I wasn't able to watch David and Mariano playing double in Australia. I can only image their fighting spirit on the court and other Argentina players cheering for them on the side of the court. Still, I have faith on David and Mariano.

Yes! I agree with you! If David win over Hrbaty, I'm sure it will give Coria a lot of encouragement when he play Hrbaty. (No matter Coria losts the first match or not.)

I know it's too early to ask, but if they win the first three points, is it possible that Gastón or other players playing the rest of ties?

:confused: :confused: :confused:

It's not important if Gaston plays, the fact is this is the best team for the conditions they are playing in.

Actually if Hrbaty plays Coria and the match is a live one, Hrbaty will win easily and I actually think it will go to the 5th match.

Well, I've been the 1st surprised to get a chance to see part of that tie between Argentina and Australia on French tv. And I'm sad that they don't do it again this time...:sad:

Re: Making Halusky in Slovakia Davis Cup Thread

Of course the team's winning is more important than Gastón's playing. It he plays, then some of us would have a chance to watch his match and bring us some match report, at least some pictures. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind that Gastón can only stay on the side of the court during this weekend. He is a person who always encourges his teammates.(sometimes his fans!) I'm sure he will do his job right.

;) ;) ;)

I actually wonder if Coria is in supreme form to last the potential tough matches vs either of the slovaks, if he is then I don't think even Hrbaty will have an easy win over him, but if he isnt, then its quite possible he gets beaten well on Sun. Of course the atmosphere will be a lot on the slovaks side so anything is possible really...and nothing is sure :p

I hope Gaston will cheer them big, he still owns me that DC trophey :devil:

Vamos!

Re: Making Halusky in Slovakia Davis Cup Thread

There are some interviews with both Mancini and Mecir on the DC site. Mancini was very good in talking about Gaston's role within the squad and he is appreciated for being there and good that his ego isn't hurt unlike some players I know, because they are not the star of the show.
