Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

I don't know why is it a big surprise....

I know that they didn't last that much, but nowadays is becoming something normal to don't last that much with a determined coach....

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

According to Blengino they had an agreement till RG and they will see what to do after it. He had a meeting with Coria and he announced it that he didn't want to go on with him. Even though he knew about this Blengino said he was suprised by his decision but still wished him the best...
It was in an interview from Clarin this morning.

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

Thanks a lot for the info jazz_girl. I am quite surprised. But there has to be a lot more than we know, so who knows, maybe it was the right move...

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

He's also in talks with Gil Reyes to be his PT, but I think he still needs a coach...

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

if this is true, all i can think is that Coria based his game on Agassi's so i suspect that that may be where the Reyes idea came from. speaking of which, did Andre retire

also i checked Clarin and found no report of this which should be HUGE news. here's the website so y'all can check for yourselves...

http://www.clarin.com/diario/2004/06...ex_diario.html

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

Lots of drama in the Coria camp now and I think it started growing during the French Open final!

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

Tchick, here is the spanish interview - if you or anybody can translate it would be great - my spanish is really bad. Thank You

Fabián, se habló mucho en estos días acerca de tu continuidad como coach de Guillermo Coria. Y... ¿seguís o no?

—No, ya no voy a estar con Guillermo. Desde que asumí se acordó que el vínculo era hasta Roland Garros y, bueno... Eso estaba claro y yo lo respeto.

—Ocurre que, a la luz de los resultados, se podía especular con la renovación del vínculo.

—Mirá, más allá de que estaba claro que el plazo era hasta Roland Garros, la decisión de Guillermo me sorprendió. Pensé que podíamos seguir adelante, porque el trabajo que hice me pareció bueno y se obtuvieron resultados positivos. Sin embargo, hubo una reunión y se me comunicó que ya no iba a ser el entrenador de Coria. Me tomó por sorpresa.

Fabián Blengino, voz firme y palabras medidas, está tranquilo y aleja cualquier posibilidad de polémica. Pero, claro, aunque no lo admita abiertamente se percibe (y se entiende) un cierto tono de decepción. El entrenador de 38 años, que supo trabajar con Franco Squillari y Agustín Calleri, entre otros, se enteró de que Guillermo Coria no lo tiene más en sus planes. Y esto a pesar de que Willy obtuvo tremendos resultados al lado de Blengino. Ambos se conocen desde que Willy tenía 15 años —Fabián lo entrenó durante un tiempo y le auguró futuro de top ten— y en febrero comenzaron su vínculo oficial. Fue luego de que el Nø 3 del mundo se separara de Alberto Mancini. "Estaremos un tiempo a prueba y si está todo bien y los resultados se dan, la idea es seguir hasta Roland Garros", decía Blengino en ese entonces.

Con Fabián al lado, Coria fue campeón en el ATP de Buenos Aires —asumió durante el torneo— y el Masters Series de Montecarlo; también alcanzó las finales en Miami (sobre cemento) y Hamburgo (otros dos Masters Series) y estuvo a un solo punto de levantar el trofeo de Roland Garros. Nada mal, ¿no?

—¿Qué motivos te dio Guillermo acerca de la decisión?

—Nada raro, me aclaró que no había pasado nada, que solamente quería hacer un cambio. Mirá, tampoco quiero seguir hablando mucho del tema, porque la determinación está tomada. Yo me siento tranquilo porque hice todo lo que tenía que hacer y me voy contento. Para mí fue un placer haber trabajado con Guillermo.

—Me imagino que te habías ilusionado con la chance de ir a Wimbledon, sobre todo porque Coria no tiene puntos que defender (perdió en primera ronda en el 2003) y representaba una buena chance de seguir sumando para el ranking.

—Pienso lo mismo. Estoy seguro de que Guillermo puede hacer algo importante en Wimbledon, es una linda oportunidad. Más allá de que no es su superficie preferida, con un buen cuadro y evitando a algunos especialistas, tiene todas las chances de avanzar. El está en condiciones de adaptarse sin problemas al césped, algo que no todos consiguen.

—¿Estás dolido?

—No, no... Sorprendido, nada más, pero igualmente contento por todo lo que se pudo hacer en este tiempo de trabajo.

—¿Creés que Coria puede llegar a ser Nø 1 del mundo?

—Seguro. Tiene todo el potencial para subir a lo máximo.

Re: Guillermo Coria dismiss coach Blengino

The idea, I think, is to have Reyes as part of the team. I am not sure who the tennis coach will be. I heard that Markus - who is Chela's coach - could be his coach.

This is from tennisreporters.net:
Has (Coria) plans to work with Agassi trainer Gil Reyes
One person that Coria singled out for attention in Spanish was Gil Reyes, the well-known trainer of Andre Agassi. Coria has been counseling with Reyes for a few months and made mention that he plans to work with Reyes once Agassi retires.

"I would like to thank Gil, because his advice was very important," Coria said. "I hope next time I win the title and not disappoint those who are behind me."
