Gaudio: BRING IT ON...

All the players are ripped. You see that when you watch them practicing shirtless. But Gaudio is extra gym looking. Other guys that were extra impressive at the US Open were Tommy Robredo (like Bruce Lee) and Paradorn (just a complete freak, with incredibly full muscle bellies). Federer, when I saw him 4 years ago practicing, looked super weak. Big legs but almost no upper body at all.

Yeah its strange Fed isn't really that sculpted at all. But thats just due to genes.

Hah, he's ripped, so what? Most tennis pros are cut, of course. Do you just find him attractive or something? ;)

I remember John Mcenroe was commenting on Gaudio's physique during the French Open final last year. Saying he had big legs, and a strong upper body. Someone said most tennis players are ripped... I don't know about that, but a good number of them are. Some are just skinny. I like Gaudio's build (note, I'm 100% straight lol, if you have aol you can check out my pictures of me and my ex, by looking at my profile (thaicafe), I'll have pics of me and my current gf on there soon).
One reason I love tennis is because you get so much exercise. As a personal trainer, I definitely advise people to do interval training... tennis is my interval training. :) Mix in some weight training, decent diet, and you'll be ripped too... now if it were only that easy to maintain it....

GUGA is not ripped in the slightest. Hes very tall and skinny, however had amazing flexibility that probably put alot of strain on hes hip leading to surgery. Guga uses alot oh hip rotation on hes groundies.

There is nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud of what you are and let everyone know. We will not laugh at you, at least not in your face ;)

Guga is skinny but you can see the muscle tone. He's a different kind of skinny than Federer. Federer is a bit soft. Guga is ripped.
 
What the hell...are these forums full of ****sexuals? Gaudio looks like a manly girl in tail pic with his ponytail. Oh well he'll never win another slam again, maybe a masters cup if he's extremly lucky. Never deserved to be in the Masters Cup that angered me that Agassi wasnt there. Gauido got ripped apart in every round he should have just given the spot to agassi...

RODDICK SAFIN YOU DONT HAVE A CLUE. I would love to see agassi,roddick or safin meet gaudio at the french open he would teach them a true clay court lesson. Gaudio is improving on hard courts, dont forget he took a set off fed this yr and defeated mirnyi at IW.

I agree with this! I DO! But at least I got to see the best racquet smash I've ever seen :)

Roddick was practicing shirtless at the Australian and talk about a lack of definition. Roddick has love handles and an overall lack of muscle mass.

Yeah, it's kind of funny.

Man, it depresses me when people are describing Roddick as being flabby. I remember watching this documentary about an American white dude going to Thailand to do muay thai. He was in good shape. For an American, he was in tip top shape. His Thai trainer evaluated his body, pinching like half an inch of flab and telling him he's too fat, he needs to get into shape.

Got to get into shape. Gotta stop eating so much.
 
Hey Guga how bout you shut the fu*ck up? All youve been doing is attacking me with your bullsh*t posts. Henman is a failure im still wondering where your ******** head is. Everyone agrees that Gaudio did NOT belong in the Masters cup. Hell he barely won games it was so pathetic. He was complety blasted away. I watched some of it and it was like watching Federer beat up on an injured Hewitt. He is decent on clay. Great be beat Coria but Coria was neverous as hell (see Ferraro). Coria is probably going to win it this year. So Gugagheyatic get the hell off my back.

Gugafanatic, Safin and Gaudio played 5 times on clay and Safin won 3 of them..
any other opinions?

Lack of definition, maybe. Lack of muscle mass, no.

vlad safin lost to a no marker at the french open last yr, and although he may boost a winning record against gaudio he has not met the new resurgent gaudio. Gaudio has the best winning record on clay soo dont put marat in the same bracket as the FO champion. Gaudio ripped apart a hot Nadal this yr 6-0 in the third, and is in amazing form. Sure he deserves to be in the masters, remember Gaudio can only get better on hard courts and with time he could be top 5.

You notice you forgot to mention that Nadal ripped apart Gaudio in the first set, also with a score of 6-0. Just thought I would refresh your memory.

I have seen Blake cramp in many long matches, maybe he needs to build hes legs more or not expend as much energy on court i.e. running down balls that are more then likely going to be won by the opponent. I remember him play SAFIN r16 Aus open 2004 and he lunged for the ball and threw hes racket out, and the ball amazing made contact and went over!.
