If final were 2004 Coria versus 2005 Nadal

Who do you think would win on Sunday if 2004 Coria played 2005 Nadal?
Ignore the Coria we saw against Gaudio at RG.

Please answer the poll.

Depending on how many lucky bounces and net cords Rafa would have on his favour

hahaha!

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Nadal. Too big too strong and too young for Coria.

Egalite!

Nadal - he is a better player than Coria in my opinion, and certainly has a better temperament for the big occasion.

Nadal, hands down.

Re: If final were 2004 Coria versus 2005 Nadal

I don't think Coria was in his best shape for clay this year compared to 2004, and he still managed to challenge an in-peak Nadal to the 5-set tennis match of the year, they fought as equals for every point, but only because it was 2005 Coria playing. On this basis, one may argue that the 2004 Coria would have beaten Nadal.

MY FAVES: Coria, Nalbandian, Canas, FOXY Ferrero, Guga, Grosjean, Costa, Juan Monaco.

Coria isn't a threat anymore to the big guns he can just forget about winning RG

Even Federer might not win RG after he lost this year

If coria was very near of winning nadal this year in rome without playing his best tennis, i think than in his level of 2004 clay season he would probably have won nadal.
