Hope Gonzalez can come back and still have a good 2012 and 2013.

Great player, great forehand but injury plagued.

Who can forget the 2007 AO, played incredibly well. Great matches.

Vamos Fernando!!!

In 2007, Gonzalez was playing very good tennis and he was playing extremely well in AO.

Didn't know you were a Gonzalez fan, Ricky.

I miss some of the "old" guys, from Roger's generation, that played attacking tennis.
