Guillermo Coria overrated?

Does anyone think he is kinda overrated? I mean he has played well at times and I am a big fan of his but when you are considered one of the world's top players, it is pretty unacceptable to go 1-7 versus TOP 10 PLAYERS in 2005.

Anyone else think that he doesn't do anything against top players? Still like the guy but he is a tad bit overatted in my opinion.

Thoughts?

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

I don't like him but I still don't agree that he's overrated. It would be a shame if he never won the French Open because he is so damn brilliant on clay.

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

sure he is brilliant but being 1-7 versus TOP 10 PLAYERS is not worth of a TOP 10 position if you ask me.

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

I could understand being 0-2 or maybe 2-3 or something like that but being 1-7 is ridiculous. Jose Acasuso and Ivan Ljubicic both have more wins against TOP 10 opponents this season.

well outside of the TOP 10 it really doesn't matter. So of his 44 wins or whatever, only 1 came against a top caliber opponent. That means show me the money on his opponent next time he faces a TOP 10.

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

Ljubicic has beat Nadal,Roddick and Agassi this year. Tojo at one point might of been top 10. Henman 2.

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

Yeah, the "what is your record against other top ten players" is another thing that is taken into consideration when determining the ATP rankings, along with "how many blow jobs have you given us recently?".

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

It's not now. But there were quality points a few years ago.

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

Quality points are junk, imo

Unless anybody expects Coria to be defeating Andy on grass, Hewitt on hardcourt, and Federer anywhere... then no, he's no overrated.

Dumb thread

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Guillermo Coria overrated?

But isn't the point of the thread that if you're going to be a top 10 player you should be able to beat Andy on grass, Hewitt on hardcourt, and Federer anywhere?

I sincerely hope not but it does sort of look that way, no?

I lack direction.
