What is up with Gonzalez? Who is Gabashvili? Didn't he get taken to the cleaners by Fed at WImbledon? Gonzalez really is struggling

...Wow, Gonzo better come back, though I'm not sure if his 5 set record is very good (I do recall him coming back from two sets down against Safin last year). If he doesn't then he loses a great chance to go through an extremely weak section of the draw.

Ginepri, who played absolutely lights out today and has been working Jose Higueras, is absolutely licking his chops, i bet.

Looks like it might be Henman taking on Nadal.
 
open door for Ginepri


he avoids one headcase, and I bet he avoids another headcase when he beats Gabash and Safin loses to War

Dont be so hard on yourself. You are right, judging by the form of both guys, Ginepri has to be liking his chances, and doesn't mind that they have to dip into the reserves a little to battle a 5th set.

well, it didn't turn out to be the spanking it looked like when the thread started, but gonzo going down first round is still disappointing.

People are going to flame me for this but...

GONZO SUCKS.

Sure, he has a nice forehand, but his backhand is below average, as are his volleys and ESPECIALLY his serve.

Gabashvili's forehand was on fire! I've watched him several times live, last night on Eurosport too, and this is the best I've seen him play.

Maybe he also got infected by the virus: whoever was beaten by Fed in the final will suffer a long time depression.

Horrible loss for Gonzo! Did anyone watch the whole match? Did Teimuraz just raise his game in the last 3 sets or did Fernando just implode?

If you and i took on blake and his partner, we would have won.;) I have broken blake's serve myself.

Gonzo's never gonna have consistent results with his style of play. He slices every backhand, and slams every forehand
I am very confused with Gonzo's results this summer, he usually does better than this. Maybe he has a injury that we are not aware of ? Or maybe he is just getting sick of Larry Stephanki's do or die training and constant backbreaking intensive workout regimen.? Larry get off his back, Gonzo just wants to have fun.;)

A little controlled agreesion;) :p I would like to see him be able to develop a backhand he can drive through, instead of just slicing every the majority of the time like Ivo.

Hey, i've played people that slice backhands and explode on the forehands. It's actually rather annoying. Even though it's really predictable, it throws you off really fast.

Although gonzo COULD mix in some 1hbh drives...
