Big big surprice in todays first match on Center Court between Coria and Navarro. unfortunately Coria had problems with his serv and made many double faults. He lost first set 7-6. The audiente tried to cheer him up for 2 set, but still Coria had big problems with serving and Navarro took a quick leed by 3-0. After that Coria got more hold of him serv and won 4 game. Navarro took the 5 game to 4-1, Coria keept on fighting and won 6 game. Navarro keept on believing in him self and won the 2 set 6-3 and thereby the match 7-6 and 6-3.
damn it. i wrote an email to the tournament director and the answer was "Coria-Navarro 7-6 6-3" and i was like yessssssss! before realising that the names got twisted obviously. the result is close, but i expected him to win a couple of matches here.
It's nice that the match was close at least but most of the losses have been, which suggests really that he can't make it the crucial moments. ):
Hope for better in the doubles for him.
Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.
Maybe the sky will fall? Allez Gasquet~Mathieu~Wawrinka~Mannarino~+++
there's a small review of his match at the official website. seems like guille is the big star of the tournament and his opponent speaks with full praise of him. today is the doubles match with rodriguez against klizan/nieminen (not jarkko).
That guy has put videos of various players practising on his youtube channel and it is interesting to notice that while all of the other vids don't exceed 100 views Guille's video has already attracted more than 500 people to take a look.
I guess Guille - as long as he is playing - will always remain a name to long time tennis followers.
I sometimes wonder whether some of the new fans (perhaps interested in the Fed/Rafa/Nole rivalry) even know who he actually is.
It has been 5 years now since he won the Hamburg AMS...how time goes by...
