Re: Nadal vs. Coria ..who wins china open?

It'll be tough for Coria but I have a feeling he will not go down without a fight. It could be a very good 3 setter.

Re: Nadal vs. Coria ..who 'll win china open?

yes, if Coria gives up his sudden foolish surprises of playing below level, i think it'll be an interesting and a very close one, both went through three difficult set matches on the way to the finals, though may be Coria faced tougher ones ...

Re: Nadal vs. Coria ..who 'll win china open?

Nadal-Coria, my favourite finals ever

As for the question, I haven't seen either all week, so what do I know. I suppose that I will go with Nadal, but Coria winning wouldn't be a surprise either. I'm wishy washy

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Actually, I kind of want Coria to win... but if he does, I can't hear the HATAS whine that Nadal blows and he will never again win ten titles in a year again - as if that is some sort of smack down

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Nadal vs. Coria ..who 'll win china open?

I really don't think that Coria can beat Nadal tomorrow. He was barely able to win today against Johansson. I have to say Nadal in two sets.

"The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work."



Go Federer, Nadal!!!

10 titles... jeezus.
It's crazy. I didn't realise that, I'm even more for Coria now.

Rafa in 3 sets. Both of these have become really good all-surface players.

Re: Nadal vs. Coria ..who 'll win china open?

Coria, but he has to serve well.

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: Nadal vs. Coria ..who 'll win china open?

nadal will win based on coria's energy level this week, but if it goes to three, i think coria will win because he has rolled through every 3rd set playing his best once he gets there. nadal has seemed far from unbeatable at both the USO and barely won his first round against gimelstob, who is far less than a ToJo.

Tojo is a totally different matchup than Gimelstob though, so you can't really say that

I lack direction.

Re: Nadal vs. Coria ..who 'll win china open?

Since losing to Federer in Miami, Nadal has been building an impressive finals win streak as well, he's undefeated in his last seven finals and looks to make it eight tomorrow.

I'm going to go with Nadal 6-3 6-1.
