I think Gaudio is what is referred to as an "up and comer."
Man, the ATP is really starting to get interesting. This could be an absolutely fantastic year for men's tennis.
What's really great is that our "American" channels are finally starting to show matches involving players other than Americans. Used to be if there weren't any Americans playing they would preempt tennis and show bowling or fly-fishing (of course, now it's poker...now that's
a sport requiring a great deal of physical ability and exertion). Maybe we (and the networks) are maturing. All I know is it means more tennis for us to watch.
