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."

Really?

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.

Re: Coria :The court was too slow

He is making excuses for his defeat and he wanted to go off at 5-3 down in the 1st set and Layhani put him in his place.

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".

At least Marat has humor to his excuses.

Re: Coria :The court was too slow

Nadal is the master counter-puncher also, only with more power, so it's kind of useless to counter-punch against him. I didn't see the match, but I gathered from the scoreboard and some clips that Guillermo had to be the more offencive one in it - and didn't succeed. Plus, the balls were heavier, which is also a benefit to a harder hitter, i.e. Nadal.

Nadal won fair and square, but what guillermo said are not necessarily excuses.

Re: Coria :The court was too slow

I saw the match and the weasel was already trying to sneak his way off the court when it wasn't going well for him, if it was going well then he would have bought it up?

Considering if it's heavier it would be harder for Nadal to hit through him and Coria should be able to run more balls down and Nadal was smart in how he played the match and it's just excuses by Coria.

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

Re: Coria :The court was too slow

Since when has a court ever been too slow for Cry-baby's liking? Why doesn't he shut and get on with his job - he was beaten by a better player and he knows it.

lol, the funny thing is that he admitted that Nadal is the best on the surface the day before.

Re: Coria :The court was too slow

Excuses, excuses! And what about this one? He lost the 1st set only because that mean umpire refused to stop the game when it was raining...pfffff!

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Well done Mo!
Completely agree with your answer, GWH. Coria is probably not such a good loser and makes stuff like this up as an excuse...

Good luck to ...
