What's wrong with Coria?

Besides the musle pull, he seems to be in a really bad mood. I swear if looks could kill. There were times in the match I thought he would go on a rampage LOL.

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

Basically Wimbledon have been treating him appallingly all week which Ive brought up in another thread.

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

I guess he's tired of the rain interrupting his match...

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

Ok basically I know the top half of the draw played on Monday - including Coria, but surely an exception should have been made for both Coria and Llodra who played two matches on Sunday. As a result of this and the bad weather he may now have to play his Second Round match tomorrow if he beats Moodie.

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

Quite a few things I would think:-

a) - he hates grass
b) - the weather and conditions are pretty appalling and everyone seems to be miserable
c) - he's probably tired after Rosmalen
d) - he always acts like that when he's losing or having a hard match anyway

And yes I'm interested too Paul - in what way have they treated him badly at Wimbledon? Mind you, imo, Wimby never treat anyone particularly well - that's why a lot of the players don't like it.

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

He was on the side of the draw that started on Monday, and its a good think he started to play on monday because had he not, this match woulda been going on for far longer than it already is

In hindsight maybe it has worked out ok for Coria but still I feel an exception should have been made for both him and Llodra.

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

There really shouldn't be. It was their decicion to play the week before a slam, so thats what they got. Had they got a day off and started wednesday and Llodra woulda still lost and Coria woulda had to battle 5 sets to win his opener, would it have been that big of a difference?

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

In Llodra's case then he probably would have lost as I think the whole of his match was played today, but with Guille basically hes had to play 3 whole matches on Sat/Sun as well as 4 sets on Monday and a stop-start one set shootout today which will probably be carried on until tomorrow judging by the current rain. If he had started his match on Tuesday Id assume he would have had a 12pm/1pm start so would have finished his match.

One thing I have never understood - and this isn't just about Wimbedon but is true of nearly all tournaments...............if a match is suspended overnight like Coria's was last night - then why, or WHY do they always schedule the resumption for halfway though the next days play? Why the hell don't they let the players who are half way through a match come out first and get their match over with, instead of having to wait overnight and then STILL have to wait for some completely new match to start and finish before they get their chance? I guess there must be a logical reason for it, but I've never known what it is in all my years of watching tennis. Anyone know?

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

I think that they want to give them the time to recuperate since they usually play late on the night before.

I think it is because they want to give the players who were on the court late the previous night more of a chance to rest. So they have a longer turn around period.

Re: What's wrong with Coria?

Of course, we could just say that the Wimbledon Committe are a bunch of nationalistic piss pots and they wanted to give Henman the advantage of getting his match done before the rain, and it is all an evil plot to give every advantage to Henman........ but that would be
