He could if enough players are injured.

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

I think he`ll probably win it. I don´t think he necessarily needs injured players in the draw. 2005 was not his best year, but I think he can improve. The serve has been terrible and IMO, it´s a confidence problem plus the surgery.... I hope, for Guillermo´s sake, he wins RG one day.

Sadly this could become the best (or worst...) Coria-bashing thread these days

I don't think he will, as a certain 19 year old is in his way, and Kuerten is possibly on his way back, and there are others who can beat him.

I wouldn't be overly surprised if Coria did win RG some day though ...

I hope you`re right about Guga..., but I´m not so sure about it In the present conditions, Coria has got more chances than Guga... But as I said, I hope Guga surprises me

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

He will win the French Open , and Kuerten won't never be the same than before getting injured

In the next 6 years , i see at least 3 different winners in Roland Garros : Nadal , Federer and Gasquet

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

Maybe ... But his best chance was in 2004

The King Roger Federer

Don't forget about Ferrero. Also, Federer is determined to go all out to win RG.

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

Kuerten winning RG again would be marvellous. I'm not sure Coria has the bottle to win this title, although the Nadal match in Rome could well have gone his way.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

2004 was such an incredible match that I fear it will haunt him for the rest of his career. He might reach the final again but the nerves he displayed both in the Gaudio final and the Henman semi-final suggest that it is going to be one mighty struggle to win a Grand Slam.

In all likelihood any final opponent at Roland Garros will be a GS winner already, if not a RG winner, making it all the more difficult. However, if he got throught to the final to meet Davydenko or Ferrer, perhaps even Nalbandian, then he might have a decent chance.

On balance, I think his chances are slim.

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

most definitely YES!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

If he can play again like he was playing in late 2003 and early 2004, then he's definately got a shot.

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

He probably wont win it in my opinion. Federer and Nadal are both definately better than him if they play well. If both of those are injured maybe but he is too mentally wounded by his loss to Gaston.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Will Coria ever win Roland Garros?

i think the players that have the best chance at this point to win RG in the next 3 years are:
Nadal
Federer
Nalbandian
Coria
Ferrero
Gasquet
Monfils
Gaudio
Davydenko
Hewitt (depending on how his draw goes)
