Exaclty, and also the next year of winning the FO, Gaudio backed it up by winning 5 titles in 2005 and playing the TMC(WTF) again (by his own merit and not by the "luck" everybody is saying he got in 2004)
in 2005 42–8 on clay only second to Nadal
Reached SF at TMC(WTF) were he lost 60 60 to Roger Federer
the only player to beat 3 times Nadal in clay, the last time by 06 60 61 in ATP Buenos aires (Nadal already a promise altough before started to be the player he was in Europe clay season in 2005)
