Do you think Coria´s got chances to get to the finals in Wimbledon?

With his good results at Ordina (he may be the champion tomorrow) and with all the retires of good players at Wimbledon....Do you think Coria has a chance to get to the final?

Best Player:Guillermo Coria

Sadly, no.

But i would never, never bet (in a figurative way) against Guille in a given match...

Hahaha. No.

He's done well, but his draw is full of tough grasscourters. Getting to the final would mean he would probably have to beat either Hewitt or Federer. Not impossible, but difficult.

Re: Do you think Coria´s got chances to get to the finals in Wimbledon?

that would involve getting past Roger... sorry, don't think so. Getting to a final of a small tourney with a relatively average field does not make him a grass expert lol

But hopefully he does well

Im happy if he gets to quarterfinal
If he has to beat Federer in order to get to the final i would say probably guille wont get there...
Im confindent he could get to quarter though....that would be great for him (and o lot of atp points)

No. He's got a rather nasty draw, and is unlikely to reach the QF. I doubt he'd even have the energy to reach the final, after all the tennis he's played in the last 4 weeks.

I hope he does do well though. The effort he's put into trying to improve on grass should be rewarded.

Re: Do you think Coria´s got chances to get to the finals in Wimbledon?

he would have to beat like 3 or 4 big servers in a row to reach the quarterfinals, no way.

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.

I think Guille would have to get tremendously luck to reach the final.

But, I am really proud of the way he has played on grass. He wants to excell on all surfaces and although many a player gives lip service to that same goal, Guille has backed up his words with action.

If Hewitt can win Wimbledon, it's not totally outside the realms of possibility that Coria could get to the final. Given the strength of the opposition, it is highly unlikely.

Who knows. His chances are low but he's hungry and relieved. This is not RG. He's the underdog here.
