For someone who has a history of cramps in long matches, playing yourself to exhaustion in meaningless exhibtions week before a clay grand slam is a masterstroke.

Re: Coria complained of exhaustion then plays World Team Cup

maybe he's a professional who simply decided to keep his word

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

But I thought the main thing in the world that Coria cares so much about is being prepared to win Roland Garros?

Re: Coria complained of exhaustion then plays World Team Cup

I can't stand Coria but in this instance I think it is just a case that he gave his word to the organisers a long while ago, so probably should be commended for keeping that word instead of pulling out with some lame excuse. He has played a lot recently (finals in Monte Carlo and Rome and a quarter final in Hamburg) which would explain his exhaustion - but obviously no one can guarantee getting to the final stages on Masters' events, so I guess he commtted to WTC before he knew he would play so much and then went along with it He isn't playing singles against Chile anyway which will give him more rest.

I think he really needed some rest before RG because you know he will make a run. If he's keeping his word, though, good for him.

Yes, I followed the World Cup yesterday and I was wondering the same thing. It is probably money, or he is upset because he hasn't won any tournaments and thinks that he has a chance at the World Cup.

I don't think it's a question of money or he wants to win at least this title because he hasn't won any other tournament this year . Like Rosie said, he just gave his word to the organisators.
But he takes it quite easy so far, I saw his first match and it rather looked like an exhibition.
