I think it's odd that Nico's left hand is contracted during contact.
In most pics of pros I've seen the fingers on the non-racquet hand are fully extended.
Another useless observation, no doubt..... :whistle:

Two happy campers!  :rofl_2:



Death Match, a four page spread about the "Curse of the 2004 French Open," appears in the new addition of Tennis Magazine. Nothing new here--it's an expose' of the psychodrama that haunts Gaudio and Coria--but interesting that it got such a big write up some 6 years hence.

People can't get enough of THIS final that will live on in infamy. :good:

Yeah, it was a very special match. The rivalry between them, the wave, the 2 sets to love, coria serving for the match, gaudio scaping from 2 match points, vilas watching, argentinian vs argentinian, and a lot more. I even remember what I did that day  :rofl_2: :rofl_2: Great show!

More than 2 weeks since my last update, feel bad about it. I will tomorrow, right now I can tell you that il gato is playing a CH in Milan, and he beat today alberto martin in three sets, 6-3 3-6 6-3 (i think it was like that) and he will face ramirez hidalgo tomorrow. I couldnt watch it, but at least hes winning matches and thats the important thing to get some confidence and points back. More later!

Luggy! Taylor Dent is going to be in Chicago next week playing at the Winnetka Challenger. I first saw Taylor 10 years ago when he was 18 playing this event. :thumbs-up:

Also, my 17 y/o neighbor Evan King will be there. I first saw Evan 13 years ago when he lived in my apartment building and played next to me with his father every day. :)

Well, that was pretty week. Gaudio was up an early break to start the match, but got broken twice in 3 service games to drop the first set 6-4. Never in the 2nd set after going down an early break 1-4. Looked very disinterested most of the second set.

F*ck, I was hoping he could play a master or something if he could gain some points and improve his ranking..but if hes desinterested I cant see him doing that...maybe a USO wc could do the trick...make some calls babb!

Gaston is looking good. Vintage Gaudio, so smooth, gliding on the clay and a maestro with the backhand.

There's no sound or scoreboard  :mad1:

But Gaston lost the last 3 games and they are sweeping  :(  Not returning serve well and UEs off the FH came in bunches right after my last post. Let's see where he goes mentally.
