Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

I think that what bothers me most is that the match was lost by Coria not being able to close a final against someone like Gaudio who would have lost against any other top 5 in a Grand Slam final. And he (Coria) doesnt seem to know how to lose. Nalbandian had problems against Gaudio but he didnt make it a big deal.

Re: Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

Okay, much has been said about Coria and Gaudio for the last 24 hours, positive and negative. Now I think we can leave them alone.

Re: Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

Gaudio is not the person who can win the french open. Its sad that Coria lost the match.

Another sour grapes thread.

"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: Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

* If you watched the match in it's entirety you could say BOTH GAUDIO & CORIA DESERVED to be RG 04 CHAMPION!!!
However as we all know only one guy gets his name on the trophy>_<..

What Gaudio managed to do during the entire 2-weeks was phenomenal: wins 5-setters over Canas, Novak, then tough 4-sets against Enquist, then demolishes Andreev, Hewitt, Nalbandian, & finally manages to defeat Coria after struggling with nerves & a 2-set deficit!

Coria deserves the title because he has clearly been the best clay-court player in the last 12months!! Something like 47/50 matches he's won on Clay dating back to Hamburg last year! Also Coria played exquisite tennis at RG this year; especially straight sets win over Moya was superb & comeback against Henman took courage.
-->>>> Of course it's never easy having the pressure of being "favourite" because anything less than winning the Title will be considered a 'failure'>_<. Coria managed a huge lead 6-0,6-3,4-4(40/love).. BUT Gaudio wouldn't concede!!!

We know Coria will get another chanc; probably next year & then the year after etc.. The problem is he will face increasing pressure because of this loss>_<. What he needs is a a way to calm down & accept what happened; which he seems to be doing in his remarkable post-match interview. ON the upside I'm sure the fans at RG & other Slams will give him a lot more support in the future-->>> so that positive energy will hopefully get him over the line when his chance comes again.

PS~ hope Coria doesn't have to wait as long as Ivanisavic did to taste that elusive victory in his favourite Slam..

Unhappy Re: Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

Coria's loss brings back bad memories to me. It is very reminiscent of FO final between Medvedev and Agassi. In that match I wanted Andrei to win really bad, but he blew the 2-0 set lead just like Coria!

Ale, you are right. Coria did lose...that's because Gaudio WON. One winner, and one loser.

Re: Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

I don't like Coria, but I have to agree. HE LOST.
Gaudio is a rightful and deserving champ though...

Re: Gaudio didnt wint Coria lost...

You make a thread to let people rub it in to you? This is very wise.

Look, Gaudio is holding the Cup.
