Gaston Gaudio's career-high ATP Entry ranking was No. 5 in 2005. His most significant victory is when he won the French Open in 2004. As of May 25, 2009 he ranked World No. 357.

Gaudio is one of the most unpredictable players in the modern game, as he is capable of spectacular shotmaking especially with his outstanding single-handed backhand and clever dropshots. Within a short timeframe, however, he can self-destruct leaving himself and tennis fans in general frustrated with his inability to retain a consistent level of play. This is something that Gaudio himself acknowledges.
