Well, I don't think so...
Coria never had problems to beat Gaudio before... Shit just sometimes happens.
well, he HAD lost to gaudio before, the only argentine in a pro match he ever lost to (up until then), and had another very dramatic final against him too which ended in a near brawl in the locker afterwards...so a lot was there with gaudio
I agree he probably felt more pressure because it was Gaudio and because he wasn't allowed to lose against him.
But he surely would have been extremely nervous anyway, you could already see that in the semi-final and the year before, and Nalby would never ever have played as poorly as Gaudio did, so I think he would have had a very hard time winning against David too.
yes, but he never lost to nalby before at that time & had a clear psychological advantage to rely on, in addition to being much better on clay anyway...David DID play as poorly as gaudio, btw...in the SF!! he choked.
