Thumbs up SUNDAY FINALS! Coria vs Roddick!

Sunday, April 4
CBS channels
12:00pm EST
Coria vs Roddick Nasdaq-100 Final
LIVE

A DREAM FINAL for ..... anyone?

OK, who can't get excited over an el Mago/A-Rod final? If not, You crazy!

Their head-to-head stats:

2003 Tennis Masters Cup, Hard, Round Robin
winner: Roddick 6-3** 6-7** 6-3** *** ***

2002 Houston, Clay, Semifinal
winner: Roddick 6-3** 2-6** 6-2** **

OK, the fact that Andy actually beat Guille on clay is making me dizzy right now.* ***





el Mago has some fightin' words about Roddick:

Q. Who would you choose to meet in the final?

GUILLERMO CORIA: Either one is going to be a very tough match. It's a completely different matchup with those two guys. But with either one of them, it's going to be very hard.

But I would like to have revenge against Roddick.
--
Q. In a Tennis Masters Series event like this, would you rather play a best two-out-of three final or a best three-out-of-five final, and why?

GUILLERMO CORIA: Especially if I play with Roddick, I prefer to play five sets. It gives you more chances to come back in the match when you play five sets.

Q. If it is Roddick on Sunday, what can you say about the challenge of facing him?

GUILLERMO CORIA: He's going to have to win every point. I'm going to fight very hard every point. Roddick is going to have to earn it.

It was very important to win this match, to come back in this match. I feel pretty good about that. I also am still pretty hot about my loss against Roddick in Houston.

Hope we get a great popcorn match and not one of those dreadful one-sided blow-outs.

Good luck to Guille and Andy! Give us a good one!

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: SUNDAY FINALS! Coria vs Roddick!

lol tangy I wouldn't get too excited about the clay win... that was like right after Guille was coming back from his drug suspension. Guille would absolutely creme Andy on clay now, I'm sure.

Andy needs to play as sharply as he did today. Guille isn't that great a server so he has to return well and he needs to serve really well himself and mix it up b/c Guille is great from the baseline.

I find this line interesting though "Especially if I play with Roddick, I prefer to play five sets. It gives you more chances to come back in the match when you play five sets." It's like he's assuming he'll be down at some point in the match and will have a chance to come back lol

Re: SUNDAY FINALS! Coria vs Roddick!

Well that's because he will be going in as slight underdog to Andy. And Andy also has the weapons to overpower him. That's how I took it. lol

Re: SUNDAY FINALS! Coria vs Roddick!

I wonder how the crowd is going to react... half for Guille and half for roddick? Hispanics are clannish that way.

Re: SUNDAY FINALS! Coria vs Roddick!

Last year Agassi-Moya was 6-3 6-3.
Why the change?

Good, best of 5. So maybe the cute little bunny will have a chance to escape from the deadly bear in his playground.

Re: SUNDAY FINALS! Coria vs Roddick!

Go the Umpire I hope he has a great match.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Oh nice! Good animal visuals.... although I don't really see a bear going after a bunny.
