COMEON GUGA THIS IS REMARKABLE. THE guy has been out for 6 months and returns with a crushing win over talented O.Rochus. I really think this can be Gugas Yr, I would love him to win roland garos a remarkable fourth time.

I'll cry if Guga win Roland Garros after his problems!

Here in Brazil I know a lot of people that not believe more in Guga's game!

But I really think he can be a TOP 10 again!

I hope Guga returns for more great tennis! I would love it if he could pull out another RG win this year...
 
I dont think his body could hold up to win RG, and there are too many new players since he last dominated there(Coria, Nadal, Federer). I do think he could take anybody out on a given day there, but he wont have enough to go all the way. If he makes the quarters it should be a pleasing result for him, and semis should be ecstatic.
 
It doesnt really matter since Kuerten is not 100% physically for any extended period anymore, and there alot of people other than Federer Kuerten might have to beat in a row to win the French. In any case the answer would be alot more than a 100% Kuerten would beat a 100% Federer on any non-clay surface.

Guga has had revsion surgery, to eliviate any pain caused during a number of matches. If this surgery is successful then Guga will be able to play the French open pain-free with full mobility. I cant imagine Federer, Coria, Nadal or Ferrero playing to gugas level when he is 100% healthy. Guga owns roland garros, no one can touch him when hes fully fit.
 
We will see. It has been said many time he will have a permanent solution to his chronic injuries/pain and it never happens. Ferrero was a challenger to Kuerten on clay even when he won all those French opens. Coria and Nadal are newer so it is harder to say.

Coria hasn't even reached a quarterfinal since his RG loss...If he wants to pick himself up off the bathroom floor, the time is NOW.

Did he have hip replacement surgery?

I'm a big fan of Guga - gangly, yet encredible grace and athleticism, sort of like an athletic giraffe. And charming! Is he really as nice as he seems to be in those interviews? Getting rid of his longtime coach/father substitute doesn't coincide with his nice guy image. What is "revision" surgery? I was suspicious that he had hip replacement surgery. Getting back to the top after something like that is just about impossible.

No he had the scar tissue from hes hip removed, it was not a total hip replacement. Guga has been strengtheining the musles around the joint to regain better flexibility. Although it came as a shock that he left larri passos, a new approach may be better for him in the long run. Trust me Guga is a real nice guy not just for the cameras like some players. He has won both the ATP humanitarian award and fans award. He also has been voted ATP player of the year, and remarkable Brazilian sports personality of the year, ahead of soccer players like Ronaldo, Rivaldo.
