Hi Hitman,

I'll be following your play by play. I missed your comments earlier as I was watching the Steelers vs. Titans. My team lost in OT to the Titans 34-31, so I'm ready to see some good news, even if I already know the result!!

One thing concerns me about Guga winning Auckland. It's how long it took to finish this tourney due to the rain and his having to play a couple of matches a day. He's not gonna have much time to recover before having to play again.

Guga pumping the fist, really happy!
He puts a towel over the head, as the brazilian crowd shouts "É CAMPEÃO!" (translation: "Champion!")
Larri shouting and pointing to heaven. He did that when Guga won Brasil Open too. I guess it´s to dedicate it to his mom and dad. :D

Looks like Guga forehand is working well but his serve need improvement. Can't really tell whether his backhand is up to his par.

What do you think, Diss?

Cool speach from Auckland Tennis´President Peter Gardner:

"Veni, vidi, vici" (came, saw and won).
"When we saw you win Roland Garros three times, and reached the world number one, we were thrilled. Now we know HOW you did that". :D:D

The rest is blah blah blah
