I admit - no I did not watch his match against Robredo and unfortunately I even missed his match with Roger! :(  So you guys are the 'experts' on Dent so if you say his hands are the best - then they must be! ;-()

I have to admit that, when he is in form, Safin still plays a spectacular game :)) .

the 5th and last WC in the atp 500 tournaments is awarded to Gaston Gaudio!

Gaudio, the 2002 champion, will open against compatriot Diego Junqueira for a second round spot against another former champion, 2004 winner Tommy Robredo. Gaudio lost to Robredo the 2004 final, months later he won Roland Garros.

Tears of joy!

See, what folks around here don't realize is, Gaston is a beloved figure. With so much emphais on wins and losses, what really gets lost is the simple fact that people like personality and will bend over backward for the true characters of tennis.

Thanks conchita!

You could not have said it better, more important than this:
2004  Tommy Robredo  Gastón Gaudio 6-3, 4-6, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3
2002  Gastón Gaudio  Albert Costa 6-4, 6-0, 6-2
is personality and charisma. Gaudio is a nº1 in those aspects.


a picture of the 2002 ceremony, Costa is now the tournament director.

don't need to mention Safin was awarded with the 3rd WC in Barcelona,
because of this:
2003  Carlos Moyà  Marat Safin 5-7, 6-2, 6-2, 3-0 (retired)
2000  Marat Safin  Juan Carlos Ferrero 6-3, 6-3, 6-4


this is the unforgettable anecdote-moment when the big trophy was broken

no, because of charisma and the love of local fans as with Gaudio.

1st WC went to another champion of the event Ferrero, the 2nd to another of your guys Gonzalez and the 4th to great veteran Beto Martin

There are a lot of fans making tribute videos for a guy who played his entire career in relative annonymity.

It was Gaudio I saw first when I discovered tennis and it what the "character" that interested me... shortly after I saw Rafa ... all fist pumps and jumping. Had it not been for the two of them I would have never stayed tuned long enough to become familiar with the game and then learn to really enjoy it!

Gaston, playing one of the most prestigious challenger events in the season, he is in the semifinals in Tunis.
he is surprised about his level of play and he is feeling very good about his comeback.
more: Wild Card for Gaudio in the atp event in Estoril, champion in 2005.
finally: Gaston has requested a wild card for another event he won: Roland Garros.
