Once again someone has confused cramp as an injury. It's not an injury and never has been an injury, it's a loss of physical conditioning and is preventable. If a doctor says cramp is an injury then they shouldn't be working in medicine.

To the answer the question. The King of Clay for 2004 doesn't exist, there have been only 3 Kings of clay Borg, Muster ( for 1,5 seasons) and Kuerten, the others are pretenders.

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".

Coria wasn`t injured, he had cramps because of nervousness.
If you want to be a real champion you also have to be able to handle pressure and nerves.

Gaston was the king !!!!

Definately Gaston He won 5 clay court titles this year (Vina del Mar, Buenos Aires, Estoril, Gstaad and Kitzbuehel), while Coria won only one. As for the 2004 Roland Garros final - get over it people - I'm sure Coria has by now. Cramp is not an injury, Gaston was the Champion and no one will ever take that away from him

Re: Who Was The 2004 King Of Clay - Coria or Gaudio?

2004?a call from the past...
neither ...Coria, had a better last year,he played great ,but his fatal problem appeared in more than one occasion( the biggest was RG ) ..fear from winning , so he wasnot the king..

As for Gaudio, the record spoke for it:32-13..he lost 13 times,.honestly ,.i can't call him a king,

{O mankind! We created you from
a single (pair) of a male and a female,
and made you into nations and tribes,
that ye may know each other
(not that ye may despise (each other). }

The most honorable call for peace all over the world...
