Re: Corretja vs Chela: Who gon' win?

I think they're both very entertaining to watch on clay, but Corretja at his best (when was he last?) should take it.

Chela is leading 3-1; the only time Alex won was on clay otherwise he was torn into pieces on hard-courts.

No doubt cheering for Alex but i'm afraid he will lose in 4.

Re: Corretja vs Chela: Who gon' win?

Hmm....interesting match, sounds like a tough one that could go four or five sets. Corretja has done well at RG and is very experienced on clay, Chela is not some young upstart so he knows how to play on the clay as well. We'll see.

Re: Corretja vs Chela: Who gon' win?

I think that Chela should be too good for him but Corretja could certainly take a least a set off him.

Re: Corretja vs Chela: Who gon' win?

I think Chela will win, and I will cheer for him.

Surely playing in rg will motivate corretja a lot anyway.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Chela will win, though I want Corretja to put in one last great performance at RG.

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?
