As usual, Tommy gives his fans a few heart attacks first :) Good luck against Acasuso in the next round.

Nice to see Tommy rebound after that horrible 2nd set chokejob last week, but Gaston.:sad:

Why was it revenge?
Since no one else seems to feel like answering you, it is revenge because Tommy lost to Gaston just last week in Montreal.

I understand that...but why does winning this week mean revenge for last week?

And now I realize why no one else responded. Alas, I always learn the hard way.

:lol:

And I at least semi-responded. ;)

To answer the question, losing to someone one week but returning the favor the next week is definitely a form of revenge. Revenge makes the world go round!

It's very well describing the situation (as above) but why is that situation one of "revenge"?

Kinda wanted both to go further some more rounds, but I wanted Tommy to win and I'm glad he did! Vamos Tommy, beat another argie next!

Gaudio, better luck next time! But still, some nice results from him this year on HC, that's good.

Are you confused of the definition of revenge?

http://www.m-w.com

There's a dictionary that can define it for you.

*edit*

Main Entry: 1re·venge
Pronunciation: ri-'venj
Function: transitive verb
Inflected Form(s): re·venged; re·veng·ing
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French revengier, from Old French, from re- + vengier to avenge -- more at VENGEANCE
1 : to avenge (as oneself) usually by retaliating in kind or degree
2 : to inflict injury in return for <revenge an insult>

Therefore, as in definition 1, Tommy avenged himself by retaliating in kind or degree by winning the match this week that he did not win last week against Gaudio.

Get it? Got it? Good.
