I personally think he should take a rest...after 2 gruelling weeks at RG....timmy too....what do you guys feel???

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?

No, cause even if he plays for one more week here, he still has lots of time to rest. But he needs practice in order to prepare for Wimbledon. I think he should go for it and play.

Well I don't think our great British media would ever forgive Timmy if he withdrew from Queens, but I tend to agree about Coria. I am not a Coria fan but he must be mentally and emotionally shattered after RG and an early defeat on grass would not do anything for his confidence. However, if he didn't play, loads of people would attack him for being a "clay-court" specialist and not bothering with other surfaces like they have with Costa, Corretja and even Guga in the past, - so I guess it's a case of "damned if you do and damned if you don't" for him.

with all the injuries to players...playing so many matches can really burn them out...practice is necessary but look at players like nalbandian who always seem to get back the same injuries, ferrero who is likely to miss the grass season and possibly the whole year if he don't get back his fitness, kuerten's hip where he needs to take a lot of painkillers in between matches, its really hurting to the body....damn its so tough to be a player...i really admire them

Re: Do you think Coria should take a week's rest instead of playing at Queen's Club???

Yes he should. As I have said in another thread he should start taking better care of his body. Otherwise even next year's RG might be out of reach. It should be obvious now that his body can not sustain the current level of training/matchplay. If he doesn't change then he might as well follow Fererro's path this year. If withdrawing Wimbledon is what it takes then let it be. He has much better chance at US Open anyway.

In all seriousness, I believe that Coria will tank his 1st round match. Mentally, he's out of it. He's just gonna show up because he gave his word, he'll lose his opener (although he can win it, his crap tennis might be good enough to beat his opponent he faces in the 2nd round) and then he'll take the extra time off he needs to be ready for the grass

I think he should play. I think he should try as best he can to win. I think he will likely only win a few matches, and then he will have time to rest.

I think mentally right now it is best for him to play. If he sits around, images of RG will just keep invading his head. Sometimes the best thing in bad times is to keep active and occupied.

He must improve in grass, wherefore this is the best for him.

Yeah you're right on the money as usual Star Mate !
* It's just as the old proverb/cliche goes~ "If you fall of a horse you should get straight back on"..
Thinking too much about RG Final loss will only haunt Guille, it doesn't matter how much he regrets wasting the opportunity he can't change the result.. But at Queens I'm sure his fellow pros will be happily surprised seing him show up this early to a lead-up grass event & with his Draw he can atleast win a few matches. Who knows he may even take Queens Crown if the other seeds continue to tumble (Agassi out, Philippoussis out..)!

Keep your head up Coria~ you're about to become a fan favourite (after shattering loss & honest revealing interview), so make the most of it .

I think so. Coria was struggling physically in the French final, and not only that but losing in a final which he believed he was supposed to win. Time to rest physically and mentally.
