Thomas Johansson attacks coria

http://aftonbladet.se/vss/telegram/0..._537__,00.html

"Coria is the player on the tour you really dislike. He makes stupid comments and he is generally pompous"

I like that the swedish players say what they think about the other players on the tour. It suprises me that it never creates big headlines outside sweden. I think for example about Jonas comments about the willimas sisters etc.

It's unprofessional if you ask me. Imagine you badmouth someone you work with.

Re: Thomas Johansson attacks coria

It's also unprofessional to complain about balls that are a foot inside the line and, with incredible hypocrisy, accuse other players of being paranoid. Oh well, whatcha gonna do?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Doesn't seem like the type of comment you would usually hear from T Johansson or any Swedish player.

Re: Thomas Johansson attacks coria

COME ON...

it's just an honest opinion. He also said that Coria is a very good tennis player. But I think if someone ask you what you think of a person you should be honest. Espacially if you find the person very nice or like coria, an idiot. And hey, what would the tennis, in an historic perspectiv be without some honest opinions?.. I like honest anwers.

And hey, swedes usually dont make enemies and comments like this. but swedes are pretty honest people. I'm sure Thomas didnt mean to create an argument or fight. But in sweden journalists and sportsmen talk friendly and in an hoinest way with eachother. And this journalist decided to quote thomas, and of course thats right.

Work with?.. I would rather say work against. But perhaps burger king and mc donalds work with eachother, I mean they do the same thing

And as long you are honest with what u think I think it's just fine.

Jeg forstår det.

I mean it's better to know openly than someone being nice to the face, but really disliking you.

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".

Exactly - I would sat ToJo is one of the nicest, most honest and straightforward guys on the tour - and someone who most of the other players respect.

Re: Thomas Johansson attacks coria

Coria's technique sucks, or to be politically correct, "is awkward". His game is crap to watch for most people. He's got a record of nandrolone use. He's arrogant in his on court behaviour (no sportsmanship in the gentlemen's sport) and off court in his comments towards other players. He's disliked by lots of players and no other player has so frequent fights with others (in USO vs Massu most recently). Still he rarely gets criticised while everyone's so eager to slam Hewitt over his celebration style.

Tojo doesn't know when to keep his mouth shout.
But he's always right.

Re: Thomas Johansson attacks coria

There isn't any law saying that other players have to like each other, and as long as he told it directly to the person and not solely through the media, then that's fine.

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".

Re: Thomas Johansson attacks coria

I find the Coria bashing so pointless, I don't particularly like him but I don't see what he's done to deserve all this mocking, He may be a bit emotional on court, but so are other players.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.
