    Lol, not gonna happen, I doubt he'll win another match. He was a great player, when he was healthy, he just doesn't have the body to keep playing anymore.

    Once you've had hip surgeries, as he has, it's most unlikely that your knees and ankles will forego injury for long as you'll be favoring the hip. Guga will never be a factor again. As the hip is a ball-and-socket type joint it's particularly prone to the effects of repeated trauma.

    Which is tragic, but means nothing at all has changed for a few years. Guga was has been, and remains, over.

    On thursday evening guga was training. While he was running to get a ball, he jumped and when he landed, his foot twisted. but he will play on davis cup. i hope he gets better as soon as possible. :cool:

    Guga vs. Baggy in a GS final

    Just imagine that.
    There'd be angels coming down from the sky, flowers popping out in the mid air, and like... rainbows all over the place.

    Marc is the new Kuerten. And Kuerten is the new Rafter.

    Yes, kindred spirits. Class, peace, love, beauty and joy all the way around. Don't know about the rainbows (and, who exactly would the rain delay benefit?:) ), but somebody's drawing a heart on the court at least once.

    Well too bad for Kuerten.
