apparently he gave some sort of press conference, announced his official retirement, said his very happy with the decision and that his two best matches on the tour were vs Agassi in RG and vs Nadal in Rome.

Re: Guillermo Coria retires from tennis



Such a fun player to watch, how his serve deserted him in such at such a young age and in such a nasty way is beyond me.

Have a good one Guille and thanks for all the moments.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

He deserves a better end than this to his career, oh well. Thanks for everything, Guille.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
