Guillermo Coria as a Davis Cup local Commentator

Guillermo Coria decided to start a career out of commentator for TyC sports (local tv channel who has all rights of DC ties since I can recall)

Guillermo Coria talked about not ending his career for at least another couple of months but made clear he is interested in becoming a commentator

Guillermo Coria will comment Davis Cup in TyC Sports

The well known argentine Guillermo Coria will conduct the transmition of the Davis Cup final along with Gonzalo Bonadeo from Mar del Plata


Guillermo "el Mago" Coria has a vast experience ATP wise and in DC ties. His opinions will allow watchers of TyC Sports have a qualified analisis of what is going on around in the court.

TyC Sports will transmit the whole Davis Cup series from 21st to 23rd November, just like they have been doing from 1994. Will have a crew of 30 people and 15 cameras that will be transmitting every detail that will be going on in Mar del Plata.

For the Davis Cup preview, TyC sport will transmit on thursday a special show with a couple of interviews with the players that will be disputing the ties in Mar del Plata.

Gonzalo Bonadeo interviewed in Paris face to face David Nalbandian, Juan Martin del Potro, Rafael Nadal , Fernando Verdasco, Feliciano Lopez and David Ferrer. The players will tell in the interview their expectations about the final and the chances that will have every team.

Aditionally, they will count with the opinions of the final from Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic


Coria looks pretty decent at the moment. I kind of feel he is a bit nervous but who wouldnt? He is doing ok

Re: Guillermo Coria as a Davis Cup local Commentator

I didn't realize double-faulting was part of commentary work. Good riddance to him...after seeing old YouTube clips of his attitude on court, tennis is FAR better without him.

Thanks for the gutsy run, Phillies!!! World Series Champs...2010!!!

he's one of the greatest masters of touch and intelligence on tour of the last ten years, despite a shoulder injury that interferred with his service development.

mcenroe, connors, nastase, and other 'bad boys' before the days of 'Youtube clips' added immeasurably to the sport despite (and in many ways BECAUSE of) their fiesty on-court attitude, and the controversies that sometimes ensued. he is a tremendous loss...even for those who resisted liking him. (and not to mention he was the only one validly challenging nadal on clay!)

He was a sore loser, a choker, and a cheater. Touch or no touch...the man had the sportsmanship of a toad.

Re: Guillermo Coria as a Davis Cup local Commentator

It would be funnier hearing him talking about his issues with his wife´s cheating on him rather than about a tennis match

Re: Guillermo Coria as a Davis Cup local Commentator

I've just saw/heard him the first time as commentator and I don't think it's THAT bad^^ He's a bit slow, but it's fun to listen and I'm happy to see him ^^

<3 Andy Roddick & Andy Murray <3

.& my personal heroes Fernando Gonzalez, David Nalbandian and Marin Cilic.
