De la Peña resigns as Coria's coach.

(Télam).- Horacio de la Peña no será más el entrenador personal del tenista santafesino Guillermo Coria, de acuerdo a lo revelado hoy por diferentes fuentes.

Después de haber asistido al natural de Rufino durante los últimos 45 días, aproximadamente, el ex jugador decidió dar un paso al costado en la conducción del Mago.

En declaraciones a la emisora La Red, De la Peña explicó que "es necesario que (Guillermo) Coria haga un trabajo de fondo, porque por ahora se ahoga muy rápido".

El santafesino, ubicado en el puesto número 83 del ranking mundial ATP, cayó en la víspera en primera ronda del challenger de Szczecin, Polonia, ante el rumano Razvan Sabau, en tres sets.

Según De la Peña, el Mago Coria debe "encontrar una tranquilidad que aún no tiene".

Por eso, entre ambos convinieron que el Pulga diera una suerte de paso al costado y se aleje de la conducción, hasta que el santafesino no recupere "su mejor nivel físico acorde con el juego que tiene".

Por tal motivo, De la Peña volvió a radicarse en Chile, donde tiene un proyecto de dictar 27 clínicas de tenis, organizadas por el gobierno de ese país.

Y Coria aún no sabe si disputará el challenger de Palermo, en Italia, a disputarse la semana venidera.

---------------------------------------------------

The article basically says that Coria and De la Peña agreed to end their professional relationship at least until Guillermo can gain some confidence and internal peace.
De la Peña says that Guille should work really hard if he wants to regain his former level.
De la Peña will go back to Chile to go on with what he was doing before been hired as Coria's coach.
It also says that Coria still doesn't know if he'll play in the Palermo Challenger next week (I suppose the newspaper is referring to the Palermo international series next week and not a challenger).

I think i translated the most important stuff, but let me know if i'm wrong.


Is Guille trying to break some sort of record of most coaches hired in the space of one career?

No, seriously, i feel very sad for him. He never was one of my favorites players but i miss him on the tour

They agreed that Coria is not ready to start a come back campaign. It seems he won't play anymore this season.

Get better and come back strong Guille.

Isn't it unbelievable how a lost opportunity can change a players career.

From a great top ten player, to the low spots in the top 100, in only a few months.

Possibly shoulder surgery had much bigger impact. His serve has been dreadful ever since the surgery.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

And he came back far, far too quickly from that shoulder surgery. I remember, at the time, that Gaby Markus who was then coaching him, virtually begged him not to return too quickly and not to participate in the Masters that year. Markus himself had to cut short his own career due to surgery and knew the risks of playing top-class tennis too soon before the muscles etc were strong enough and the scars totally healed. But Coria was stubborn and wouldn't listen to him (hence why Markus left him) -and this is the result. He came back too soon, his shoulder obviously felt uncomfortable as it wasn't quite healed, he tried to change things to compensate for that discomfort - and when those changes didn't work he lost confidence and this is the result. Most people here know I heartily dislike Coria, but I still think it's a shame that he has sunk so low - love him or hate him, he bought something to the Tour and he is missed.

Re: De la Peña resigns as Coria's coach.

I am surprised it lasted as long as it did, at the same time Coria has to take some responsibility for himself and not just sack coaches so quickly. The way he is going he will have had more coaches than Carlos Moya has had women.

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".

I agree, it is more to do with the shoulder than the Gaudio match.

Re: De la Peña resigns as Coria's coach.

Good, not about the fact that they split up but for the fact that Guille has realised he isn't ready to play competitively yet. I hope he can sort out his mental issues, shoulder, and serve over the next few months.
