Coria is to the ATP what Dementieva is to the WTA

Maybe they are related............. But, they are both two top ten players who CANNOT serve and are losing matches as a result.

Coria is such a talented player that it really annoyed me to see him lose so many points due to his serve. I just listened to the commentator refer to 'today's' Coria as a shadow of his old self. I suppose that is true to a certain degree.................................


Btw, this post isn't meant to take away from Gonzo's win

LenaD is closer to Nalby. I'd say Schnyder. Head case, lovely game, not sure about Patty's serve.

Yeah, i agree, Elena is closer to Nalby. She has a similar hard hitting attacking all court game and also she is very popular with fans, like nalby and very unlike Coria!!!

patty actually has a great serve - very unpredictable, plus lefty spin. she often leads the slams in aces. at least i think so...

Go Roger , Lindsay , Richard , and Kim in '06

Re: Coria is to the ATP what Dementieva is to the WTA

Whats going on with Coria's serve?

This is so weird... Coria started the year serving very well, faster than ever. But since the match with Massu in the US Open, he has served horribly and has had a million of double faults... it seems some kind of curse, I just don't get it.

How could he develop this kind of problems so late in his career?

Its pretty obvious it is something psychological. Well, we will see if he can overcome this.

Re: Coria is to the ATP what Dementieva is to the WTA

Actually, Coria had wrist problems or something leading up to the USO match with Massu, but I'm sure that match only aggrevated it...It may still not be back to normal...

Me three! They both have relatively weak serves but aggressive games whereas El Mago relies on a more defensive game.

Re: Coria is to the ATP what Dementieva is to the WTA

completely unfair statement . . . he had surgery on his shoulder last year and is still battling whatever nerve damage there is . . . he spoke openly about not being able to feel the racket at USO . . . to equate that with Dementieva is bullshit.

ITA! Total bullshit to equate the two!

because ...

Elena is hella sexxxxy, always positive on the court, extremely well-liked by players and fans alike, has never been caught doping, and is spirited and funny in interviews and press conferences.

nothing alike!
