can coria win the french?
in my opinion he is the favourite for RG but if federer, safin, nadal, gaudio and others are all on top form does coria have the game to win it this year? i ask because most top players will dictate the points against him. he is after all primarily a counter-hitter.
now at monte carlo ferrero got on top in many of the points but was too inconsistent to keep it going and finish them off...he usually made an error. and nadal really bossed two-thirds of today's match and was clearly superior. (yes i accept coria was not at his best). but for me he still thinks better than anyone else on the clay.
soooo....coria at his best against safin, nadal, or federer or even ferrero at their bests. would he triumph?
personally my views are this:
(i) coria will win the french this year AND....
(ii) coria winning the french would be a good thing
