Thumbs down Coria vs Gaudio

Did you read what Coria did to the Argentine Team? You must to be so low and selfish to do something like that...
Gaudio is right! But you cannot expect a lot from a person like Coria...

Re: Coria vs Gaudio

This thread would be of much greater value if you would explain wtf you are talking about. Some of us went home for three days.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Coria vs Gaudio

Here is the Spanish version.

http://lanacion.com.ar/deportiva/not...nota_id=705499

Gaudio atacó duro a Coria
El Gato criticó al santafecino por negarse a jugar el singles de la Copa del Mundo; "Esto no es un equipo", dijo



DUSSELDORF (EFE).- Gastón Gaudio, que hoy proporcionó el primer punto de la eliminatoria contra Chile en la Copa del Mundo por equipos, mostró hoy su indignación por la actitud del número uno de la formación argentina, Guillermo Coria, en lo que concierne a este conjunto.

Gaudio, tras vencer al chileno Fernando González, puso en duda que la formación que se encuentra en Dusseldorf se la pueda llamar realmente equipo, debido a la disposición de Coria, número uno, para afrontar las eliminatorias.

Coria se escudó hoy en unos dolores en el hombro para eludir el compromiso contra Chile, sin duda, el más duro esta semana, habida cuenta que los dos países han ganado este torneo en los tres últimos años.

El de Rufino jugó la eliminatoria contra Francia el lunes y contra la República Checa el martes, ganando sus dos partidos individuales, contra Michael Llodra y Jiri Novak, sin ceder un set. Gaudio actuó también el lunes, con victoria ante Arnaud Clement.

"Me cansé, hay que decir la verdad, esto no es un equipo, porque hay alguien que toma las decisiones eligiendo lo mejor para él", dijo Gaudio en alusión directa a Coria, en la conferencia de prensa.

Según Gaudio la decisión de Coria de no jugar esta eliminatoria, ha obligado a Guillermo Cañas a saltar hoy a la pista con fiebre en el segundo encuentro contra Nicolás Massú.

"Comprendo que un jugador esté cansado y, de cara a Roland Garros decida descansar, pero no en el partido más importante", dijo Gaudio.

Al parecer, anoche, tanto Juan Ignacio Chela como Guillermo Cañas se acercaron a Coria para comentarle que en un duelo tan trascendental como éste su concurso sería importante. Coria les remitió directamente a su fisioterapeuta, Ivan Gutiérrez, para hacerles comprender que no estaba en condiciones.

Coria actúa en Dusseldorf como número uno del equipo, y aunque no hay una regla escrita al respecto, el número uno de cada formación elige a los jugadores que le acompañan en esta competición, y su entrenador, en este caso, el español José Perlas, ejerce como capitán del equipo.

"Aquí, las decisiones no se toman por el conjunto del equipo, son unipersonales", señaló Gaudio al respecto.

The English version:


A huge thank you to Vale for translating this article

I haven't found a transcript of the press conference anywhere, but this is what appeared in La Nación:

http://lanacion.com.ar/deportiva/no...?nota_id=705499

Thursday 19 May 2005

GAUDIO SPOKE HARSHLY OF CORIA

“I’m fed up, one has to tell the truth, this isn’t a team because there’s somebody who makes the decisions choosing what’s best for him”, said the Gato about the man from Santa Fe.


DÜSSELDORF.- Gastón Gaudio, who today obtained the first point against Chile to qualify for the finals in the World Team Cup, showed his indignation at the attitude of the team’s number one player, Guillermo Coria, regarding the team.

After beating the Chilean Fernando González, Gaudio cast doubts on whether the group now in Düsseldorf can really be called a team, in view of the number one Coria’s unwillingness to face the qualifying rounds.

Coria used the excuse of pains in his shoulder to shirk the commitment against Chile, undoubtedly the toughest of the week considering that the two countries have won this tournament in the last three years.

The man from Rufino played against France on Monday and against the Czech Republic on Tuesday, winning his two singles matches against Michael Llodra and Jiri Novak without losing a set. Gaudio also played on Monday, when he beat Arnaud Clement.

“I’m fed up, one has to tell the truth, this isn’t a team because there’s somebody who makes the decisions choosing what’s best for him”, said Gaudio during the press conference, in direct reference to Coria.

According to Gaudio, Coria’s decision not to play against Chile has obliged Cañas to go on court today with a fever for the second match against Massú.

“I understand that a player can be feeling tired and decide to rest, being so close to Roland Garros, but not for the most important match”, said Gaudio.

Apparently yesterday evening both Juan Ignacio Chela and Guillermo Cañas approached Coria to tell him that for such an important duel his participation would be important. Coria sent them directly to talk to his physiotherapist, Ivan Gutiérrez, to make them understand that he wasn’t in fit condition.

In Düsseldorf Coria acts as number one of the team and even though the rule is unwritten, the number one of each team choses the players to accompany him for this competition and his coach, José Perlas in this case, is the captain of the team.

”Here the decisions are not taken by the full team, they’re taken by one person”, Gaudio pointed out.

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".

All of this over... World Team Cup? Yikes. Thanks for the laughs, Gaudio.

I lack direction.

He could have always not played the tournament, at least Coria played the hard matches.

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

Maybe Coria actually was fatigued and something was wrong after playing the first two? I can crack on Coria with the best of them, but you'll have to forgive me for thinking that Gaudio is about as objective as Rosie. Yeah, he was actually there... but given their history, would you take anything Coria said about Gaudio at face value? I wouldn't, and I won't do the reverse.

Um, also, it's World Team Cup. I could not care less about World Team Cup.

So Coria thought Chile would be the toughest test of the week and rather than play, he used the "excuse" of shoulder pains? I don't think Coria would be scared of taking anyone on - the toughest competition of the week or not. Unless he just couldn't be bothered. I was surprised he did play this week at all.

I couldn't agree more with you... Gaudio, Coria and Cañas should be training to win RG instead of losing their time there. This tournament cannot be taken seriously. In Argentina, nobody gives a damm about it. We are all waiting for RG. In fact, the most important news article published this week are about RG. Gaudio likes to talk too much with the media. He did the same when they players decided to remove Luza.

Coria is 7-0 against Massu and Gonzo

Of course, seeing as they could have been the toughest competition and Coria opted out... well that lends weight to his apparently problems with his physical condition, doesn't it?

Re: Coria vs Gaudio

At least we know they are not buddy buddy

When I saw that Coria chose Gaudio to play WTC, I thought, I guess now they get along.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Here is a take on this are you questioning my objectivity initially? First of all I can see Coria promised to go to WTC even though it wasn't in his best interests to do so, but having Perlas as team captain might have been something in it.

At the same time sure Coria is fatigued, but he could have just played this match against the best team and leave the first 2 rounds to either Cañas or Chela, one that would mean more rest, two they could have taken care of that and lastly he plays against a better player and the committment is honoured and doesn't create disharmony.

Actually him not watching the teammates play is more of an issue than the first one and no the WTC is not the be all end all. The only thing is that sure it's a minor tournament but does that set a precedent for Davis Cup.

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".

Considering Luza was a problem and there is a captain now that everyone and not just one player respects isn't that for the overall benefit? These are glorified practice matches and only the fact that it's a team competition makes it a bit different.

Just making sure, then again some people don't think I criticise Gaudio enough.

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