  • What a free swinging backhand. If given time no one unleashed it like Guga.

  • You could see here that Sampras was slowing down a bit. Also the surface was slower, his serve placement wasnt the same. But Guga played an amazing tennis. This slower surface actually helped Guga a lot. Perfect for his game. Outstanding tournament for him. And that one handed backhand, wow, amazing.

  • I remember this interesting tournament back in 2000. Quality tennis. Also, I went to the 02 in Greenwich seven times for the World Championships. I believe this indoor court in Lisbon is the slowest I have seen in the last twenty years.

    • ​@Hoang Truong Guga with his injury and all beat Roger in straight 3 sets a year before. Roddick had only a great serve , Safin head was weak and Nalbadian will always be an if .

    • @markriobr you don't know that. Also if Fed Rafa and Djokovic played in that era would those players stjll be considered greats? I know Roddick Safin Nalbadian all solid but they were no where near Federer in the 2005s.

      Hoang TruongHoang TruongIl y a 11 jours
    • @Hoang Truong Have no ideia what you mean by big 3 , in case you refer to Roger , Nadal and Djoko . I say they are today , first Guga had only 4 years on high level , injury free . During his time had many more top players than today , will name a few. Muster , Sampras , Agassi , Safin , Kafelnikof , Moya , Bruguera , Herrero , Rafter , Haas , Norman and the list goes on . Tomas won how many masters ? Haas was way better than him , Guga when 23 , 24 would easy brake Thomas in pieces in any surface easy , even on grass.

    • @markriobr because tomas played along side the big 3 (big 4 back then). He made wimbledon final once, that is actually solid considering the big 3 won almost every slam

  • Guga winning 2 GS (at that time) was out of this world. Winning the Masters Cup (beating Sampras and Agassi on fast court) AND becoming world number 1 was unimaginable for us brazillians. I've watched the highlights of this Master Cup thousands of times and I always feel the same emotions. So sad it ended so fast...

He start winning tournaments on hard courts , beat Safin in Indianapolis , Rafter on a master in Cincinnati but his back was gone. I'm sure if he never had that injury a few slams besides the French.would be in his bag.

  • Acho que a infeliz contusão que o Guga teve no início dos anos 2000 provocou, indiretamente, o desequilíbrio de forças no tênis que a gente vê desde 2004. Ele era um cara que poderia muito bem enfrentar Federer nas quadras duras naqueles 2003, 2004 e, principalmente, dar desafio ao Nadal pelo menos até ali 2006 em Roland Garros, se estivesse saudável. Guga tava com o jogo no pico em 2001, a vitória dele em Cincinnati, superando em sequência cinco top-20 foi uma das mais dominantes naqueles tempos. Boa parte daquela turma que despontou em 2002/03 também não teria chance de ter chegado ao número 1, como Roddick (o mais limitado número 1 de todos os tempos, segundo o próprio) e o Ferrero.

    • @MrPiccoloFan2 ferrero vs agassi in us open 2013 was insane. Bast move on court very agressive forehand (cross court forehand both side court) amazing performance. Agree about ferrero

      Rafael XavierRafael XavierIl y a 18 jours
    • @EDUARDO WALLACE BRAGA DE SOUZA Nao acho o mesmo. Ferrero was a super player, who by 2000 year, was able to beat Kafelnikov, Safin, Rafter and Hewitt for winning the first Davis Cup for Spain. You also know that, before that "medical time out" by Guga, Ferrero was winning the Roland Garros 2000 semifinal 2 sets to 1, 3 games to 2 and serve. A 20 year old Ferrero against a 24 more experienced Guga almost won Guga there. And I think, if Guga didn't break Ferrero's rythm by that controversial (and I think not very "fair-play") medical time out, the result of that match wouldn't have been the same. Acho que um healthy Ferrero from 2003 would have win o Guga do 2001. I said this cause I read an interview from ATP site from 2018 year, where Ferrero said 2003 Roland Garros was the ONLY tournament when he didn't have a physical issue. He said that the 2002 Roland Garros edition he injured BEFORE the tournament, training with Tommy Robredo. Still, he won Coria, Gaudio, Agassi and Safin to reach the final, where he lost terribly to Costa, cause he had cortisone shots on one of his foot. Ferrero won against Guga in Roma by 2001 also. (Kuerten lost Roma to Magnus Norman in 2000 final edition, so he was not invincible) So, besides the HUGE CHAMPION and the ADMIRACIÓN I have to Guga (I loved Kuerten matches), the fact you are brazilian can't make you think the other players also had physical problems, like Ferrero (by the way, health problems even at a younger age than Guga's problems). Prime 23 years old Ferrero (even won an Indoor Masters 1000 on carpet beating an already Wimbledon champion like Federer on the semifinals) was at the same level than Guga's 24 years old. Without a doubt.

    • @EDUARDO WALLACE BRAGA DE SOUZA para guga levar us open ele para mim tinha que melhorar a devolução( devolvia muito atras da linha de base )e movimentação em quadra( hewitt cobria a quadra muito melhor que guga). Entao só em 2003 vejo um guga saudável com alguma chance no us open. Antes disso creio que nao era possível mesmo saudável.

      Rafael XavierRafael XavierIl y a 18 jours
    • ​@Thiago Silveira P​ Longe disso Thiago, primeiro de tudo, não se trata de clubismo: É um tricampeão de grand slam, meu camarada. Não tem mais de 20 jogadores no masculino em cinquenta anos de era aberta que possuem esse hall. Em segundo, hora nenhuma fiz comparação com o big 3. Digo que o balanço de forças poderia sido mais equilibrado até 2006. Grand Slams viraram uma terra de ninguém entre 2002 e 2003, e é nesse período aí que o Guga teria estendido o reinado, dividindo o mapa com caras como Safin e Hewitt, e varrendo outros como Roddick, Albert Costa e Ferrero. E com isso ele teria dado uma competição de verdade para o Nadal no início da caminhada dele em Roland Garros, no saibro. Guga jogou em alto nível saudável até os 25, e em alto nível contundido até os 28. Hoje os caras com 33, 34 anos jogam com preparo físico de 20. E nas quadras duras, aquele US Open de 2001 era dele. Cincinnati foi um prenúncio do domínio que estava por surgir nos próximos 2 ou 3 anos. O maldito quadril começou a fraquejar foi ali. Guga não era um cara unidimensional em termos de piso, e (mais uma vez) se estivesse inteiro, poderia ter competido com o Federer no início do reinado dele.

    • Falou muita verdade mas a primeira frase acaba com tudo. Que simplificada eim, "a contusão do Guga provocou indiretamente o desequilíbrio de forças no tênis desde 2004. Brasileiro é clubista em tudo mesmo, guga foi meu ídolo mas comparar ele com o Big 3 é sacanagem. Com Murray? Ok. Mas Federer, Nadal e Djoko estão muito muito longe de guga e estariam mesmo que ele nunca tivesse sofrido nenhuma lesão.

    • Indeed. A RG final between Rafa and Guga is a "dream match" of most tennis lovers. To me, Rafa would win but it's safe to say those high balls to the backhand Rafa "hurted" Federer so much with would have little to no effect on Guga. That would be interesting to see...

    • @innosanto like I said, the concept of maintaining and conditioning your body even as you get older was not a huge concept back then training is part of conditioning. not to mention Sampras clearly lost the drive to stay at the top once he became the player with the most GS titles and most weeks at no.1 (both to be surpassed in around 10 years)

      innosantoinnosantoIl y a 18 jours
    • back then players don't really condition their bodies well... and many players became complacent after they peaked (winning a GS or achieving no.1)... I think the idea of longevity and winning as many slams as you can only really started with Federer (or Agassi to an extent)

    Daniel VictorDaniel VictorIl y a 19 jours
    • Injuries cut short his whole generation. That is why Federer only needed to dominate the players from his junior years to be so dominant. By the time Federer "arrived" in 2003-4 Kafelnikov, Rafter, Rios and Kuerten were already out of the game.

    • I agree 100%. No wonder hes the best "early to mid 90s turned pro player" by a decent margin with most GS and MS titles and weeks as n1. Quite a lot for a player who faced in the same era legends such as Federer, Sampras, Agassi, Safin, Rios, Moya, Kafelnikov, Rafter, Ferrero, Hewitt, Muster, Chang, Ivanisevic, Roddick and many others great players i could add here.
