Oh my, Gaudio!

Now this has to be acknowledged:

The Challenger circuit was a little busy this past week with events in Tunisia, Greece, the Czech Republic, Colombia and Spain. This one result really caught my eye among all the tournaments: Gaston Gaudio, he of 2004 French Open winning and burnout fame, won in Tunisia.

The past couple of years have been rough for Gaudio in regard to his tennis. It's great to see him capable of having some moments, and more importantly, wanting to have them. I don't think the game has passed him by yet. Here's hoping it doesn't! I always like a story where someone's making their way back to their former glory by working their way up from the bottom. It builds gumption, I tell ya!

Anyway, congrats to Gaston and a wish for more success in the future.
