Coria :The court was too slow
I think the conditions didn't help me, because it rained, the court became really slow, the balls heavy and it was impossible for me to win a point against him because he is so fast," Coria said. "I came really close to turning the situation around, when I came back from 1-4 in the fourth set, but unfortunately it didn't work."
I was one to think, the slower the better for guillermo. Coria is also one of the fastest on tour, so I am wondering why the slow clay would supposedly give an advantage to Rafa.
Coria is the master counterpuncher on clay, so what is he talking about? It also seems strange to me that Nadal would be more defensive than Coria on clay.
