BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Third-ranked Guillermo Coria, one of Argentina's greatest hopes for an Olympic gold medal, will not compete in Athens because of a shoulder injury, his trainer said Wednesday.
The 22-year-old Coria has tendinitis in his right shoulder and tests indicated he would not recover in time for the Olympic tennius tournament Aug. 15-22, trainer Cristian Elseser said.
"We are going to do further tests, but it's already ruled out: he will not be going to Athens," Elseser told local reporters.
Argentina hasn't won an Olympic gold medal in 52 years and Coria, one of the world's top clay-court players, has long said winning a medal in Athens was one of his goals.
Runner-up to fellow Argentine Gaston Gaudio in this year's French Open, Coria has climbed to No. 3 in the ATP rankings this year.
The announcement came after Coria flew to Buenos Aires after withdrawing from a Masters Series tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio. After arriving this week, a somber-looking Coria went to a clinic for tests and left without making a statement.
Coria has been vexed by the problem since Wimbledon and went more than a month without competing before resuming play wiht a Masters Series event last month in Canada.
Under Olympic guidelines, 40th-ranked Mariano Zabaleta is next in line to replace Coria on the Argentine tennis squad in Athens. Already on Argentina's squad for Athens are fifth-ranked David Nalbandian, No. 9 Gaudio, and No. 32 Juan Ignacio Chela.
