I'm not Coria's biggest fan, but yes: if somebody comes to my mind who would deserve to win it, then it would be definitely Coria. He is so great on clay (but also on other surfaces), just look at his clay season results over his whole career and let them speak for themselves.
A lot of depends how he comes back after his injury and how he starts into the season to get some playing practise, so it's not sure in what form we will see him next season. But if he can't win it next season, I hope he can do so later at any stage of his career.

yes, I think so, it will help him. The best ones often had bitter defeats before they finally won something big for a breakthrough.
But in general, it's always so hard to say who wins a Grand Slam because -as Stich once correctly said some time ago- talent, being able to hit every shot and being one of the greatest of your time often isn't enough because you need to be really focused at the right moment, it must be "your day" and you need a piece of luck as well.
