23 DF of quality tennis. If Kiefer didn't serve less than 50% he could've won. But coulda, shoulda, woulda doesn't mean a thing if you can't play from the baseline against one of the best clay courters in the world.
Well played, Coria too crafty at the end And Kiefer had enough chances in the third set and didn't take them. A bit pathetic from Kiefer that he didn't do better in this third set, but he played a few great points, partially agressive and was going to the net, overall still too tempative. He was winning his must-win matches on clay this week and this gives hope

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
The self-love of Coria is amazing. He blew a 5-1 lead in the first set, he was 0-3 down in the second with two breaks and he was o-2 down in the third. Despite that and his 23 DF, he won. It's impossible not to be amazed by his spirit.
i dont know if he is more 'el mago' or 'iron man'! he has so much pressure to win every point once the ball is on play, and basically, he does it! despite all the distractions of his service issues. go to love him!
