I made some videos of Guga at the US Open. Most were from practice sessions, the last one was from his warming up before his match with Goldstein. I hope you enjoy them :) If the link runs out or whatever, just PM me and let me know and I will try to fix it...

No problem, it was fun getting to see Guga play, this is the first time I had seen him in person.

Well, that's one more than I do ;)
Do you live in Canada? Guga doesn't come too often to North America now, I was worried I wouldn't ever get a chance to see him play if I didn't see him at the Open this year. Hopefully, he comes back strong next year, but I think he will mostly stick to clay tournaments in Europe/S.A.

I was but in US now, check my sig. If I still live in Canada, I may have the chance to see him play in DC. :shrug: Actually, Brazil played DC in Calgary AFTER I moved :banghead:

He will probably stick to clay most as hard court is too much for his hip. :sad:

Ahhh, so you moved from Canada to the desert here, like Arizona? That must have been quite a shock for you...

Yes, I'm still having hard time during summer. I hide inside my house most of the time, especially during day time. And spend a few weeks in Canada during the worst days.

And yes, it's Scottsdale, Arizona. And will lost the small tournament to some other cities :shrug:

I can imagine it being really hot there for you, but I hear the winter's nice.
I have a friend who is thinking of moving there, actually. He's in his mid 20s and thinking of working out there. Is it a good place for someone his age to go and look for a job and to live?

What's his skill? And if he speaks Spanish, it's a definite A+.

Metro Phoenix has a pretty good mix of age groups. The area was famous for seniors and snowbirds before but there are other parts of the city getting more and more vibrant. Most of the retired people living here are still very active. Working as volunteers and some even work fulltime as volunteers.

No, he doesn't speak Spanish, right now he works at a conference center? I don't know exactly what he is looking for in terms of a job. I'll ask him, and then I'll ask you :)
