Coria on his biggest opposition for RG

This isn't really that exciting. I just found some of it a little amusing. So I thought I'd share. This is a clip from his interview after his match with PHM.

I thought his assessment of Federer was a little weird, considering he only took two losses on clay last year... one to Fed

Time to overanalyse


Q. Who are the most difficult opponents for you this season on clay?

GUILLERMO CORIA: I think Nadal and Gaudio . They have everything to play very good on clay. They are the favorites to win all the tournaments ‑ especially Gaudio , who won the French Open . They have the game to win all the tournaments.

Q. And Federer ?

GUILLERMO CORIA: Well, he can be dangerous on clay, yes, indeed, but he must be more patient. Also I think Nadal and Gaudio have a better game than he does on clay.

But Federer is playing very good on all kinds of surfaces. If he has to play against either Nadal or Gaudio , it can become a bit complicated for him.

But, anyway, there are many favorites: There's Safin , there's Roddick , there's Ferrero , who's coming back again. There are many of them.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Yeah, that was sort of amusing. I think he has a lot of respect for Roddick, that's probably why he thought of him. Repeated whippings will do that to a guy.

I lack direction.

I doubt that he's forgotten. And I mentioned that in the first post.

I lack direction.

Coria is just be overly generous. Maybe he has a new PR person.

Re: Coria on his biggest opposition for RG

I'd agree with that assessment. Fed is one of the favourites but on clay Nadal and Gaudio are up there with him. He also said that Fed can play on all surfaces, so its not like hes saying he's bad on clay.
I find more weird that he mentioned Roddick

Re: Coria on his biggest opposition for RG

fed has never lost to gaudio on clay. coria should check his stats. Gaudio has problems playing fed, not the other way around.

also shows his lack of respect for Moya when mentioning roddick instead of him. But hey like you said, that will happen when you have crushed a guy a few times.

Re: Coria on his biggest opposition for RG

Andy does have a win over Coria on clay.

2002 Houston, Clay, S Roddick 63 26 62

Coria will remember that forever. Clearly Roddick is a favorite on clay.

He said I think, I'm sure the guy can have an opinion!

He also said there COULD be difficulties, nit there WOULD be!

You do remember Hamburg last year and it was Gaudio causing Federer the problems and a lack of nerve by Gaston in the crucial 3rd set when he needed to serve to stay in the match that was the difference. Note the better player won the match and deservedly so, but if you saw the match and say Gaudio didn't cause Federer problems then you're kidding.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
