A little interview with gaudio after his lost at BA, translated by me so be patient.
Itīs not common of you to go like this, what happened? (after the match he left without showering and without making the press conference)
- I was sad because I lost, but then I jusst forgot.
It was a decent match from your side, how did you feel?
- I had it and I lost it, it was just for a break and that made angry, but he deserved to win.
How important was this match to you given what you have ahead?
- I always feel great playing in Buenos Aires, the people love me more than usual. And I appreciate that very much because I'm at a stage where it would be good if I could gain some points to finish with the goal of finish within the top 100. But I lost matches that I was supposed to win, itīs difficult.
That was your last presentation at the BALTC?
- Iīm going little by little, tournament by tournament. Iīm not thinking about next year, I have to see have this one ends.
Do you enjoy at least?
- Achieving the goal of getting in the top 50 itīs not possible without suffering. Iīm on the tough part right now, playing qualys, trying to win without caring how, playing challengers.
Youīre the visible face of a succesful generation thatīs starting to leave, what you you think about that?
- They're leaving and I'm all about that. It would be nice that people appreciate what this generation did and achieved. It will take many years to happen something like this. We should take advantage of this.
What does your family say?
- Theyīre more calm right now, they are enjoying the last years of my career. Itīs more like and individual challenge.
Will your father go to your last match?
- I donīt think so, if he didnīt before, I donīt think heīll come to the last.
In this environment, you were a little machine of playing tennis or do you consider yourself a freak?
- I am who I am. I never put any tennis outfit. It was what it was. Whether when I had to say things, I said them. Iīve always told the truth and said what I think. Tennistically I was a machine for several years. Today I'm far from what happens and I am worrying for me.
Davis Cup today seems no man's land. How do you see from outside?
- Itīs always the same problem. From the time of Vilas, there was never union between the players. There is a problem of ego and jealousy because they are all so great and as good, as Del Potro and Nalbandian, which is complicated. Placing myself on the side of the captain is difficult to manage such a group. If Del Potro calls and says "I wonīt go" he has to start putting together another team and he is in the middle. If we donīt pull to the same side it happens what happened in Mar Del Plata (the place where Argentina lost the DC final in ī08)
Could you be captain at some point?
- It would be nice to have a relationship together. With Zabaleta could build a team, he, talking to the team and I saying things that nobody wants to hear. Today I donīt know if there is a relationship of friendship between the captain and players. At the slightest conflict, players fall. It is difficult to handle the situation.
Would you sit down to talk to Coria?
- Every day I could sit and talk with him. We donīt have too many things in common, but we are not enemies, we are just not compatible.
You are close to retire, with who and where would you like to play your last match?
- In Roland Garros or Buenos Aires, against who, someone in the tour?
Yes, or anyone you like to.
- I would have liked to have finish my career playing against Coria, as to put a tinge of emotion ...
