G. Coria FINALLY steamrolls Galo Blanco 6-7 6-0 6-2!

after a S-L-O-W start including 13 doubles in the first set & a game, guille picked it up and swept past galo 6-0 6-2 in the final two sets!

BIG BREAKTHROUGH on that serve!! Only 3 doubles the rest of the way and ended the last service game with an A-C-E! Very dominant to close! Great show!

It's just amazing with all the DFs.

What fascinates me even more is that if you take out the DFs, his winning % on the 2nd serves he gets into play is actually quite good.

Guille is just so funny to watch.
Glad he turned the match around.

For me, I'd like to take out two letters- to me, Guille is fun to watch. Even though he has his horrible serves, which can be painful to watch- he is one of my favorites to watch during a match.

I like a lot of players.

Two, to be precise.

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.

I'm really warming to Guille now. The irony is that when he was doing so well I wasn't a big fan, now I want to and tell him not to overanalyse his serve so much. Don't think about it Guille, just do it

Amazing how he manages to win matches serving like that...are you guys sure he isn't married to Dementieva and got passed the doublefaultitis infection?

He was Classic Coria for the 6-0 6-2 final sets. Galo had 5 doubles himself.

Keep fighting Guille!

I wonder though if there is anyone who saw the match able to tell how exactly Guille hit that ace? I don't think he hit any in the 4 matches at MC...
