Re: Enjoy Coria Enjoy..
A analysis by Mats Wilander in French daily L'Equipe seems to say the same thing. Before the match, he had written that he wished for Coria's victory because he was such a jewel of a player and loosing against his senior would destroy him. However, after the match, he wrote an entirely different article: he said he had never before attented a Roland Garros final and that the match was the most exciting he had ever seen. He writes: "Did you notice how Gaudio came back into the match? He laughed. His laugh changed everything. Without that laugh, he was dead. He was laughing to the crowd, to life. Coria must inspire himself of Gaudio's laugh. That defeat will make him grow if he analyses it and if he, too, dares to laugh on the court. (...) His attitude must change. He has got to stop trying to refeer himself. (..) His opponent's laugh must make him change his attitude. Before the matches you must suffer but as soon as you enter the spotlight, especially in the final, you have to forget any notion of suffering. (...) Gaudio gave everything he had (...) His laugh... I cannot stop thinking about it and thanking him. After that, I was shouting like a madman: he drove me mad!"
