Pretty straightforward question. Is Coria done or will he have a second chance?

Coria has a slim chance though I don`t really expect him to ever get back in the Top #10.. Actually Top #50 should be his goal now & he can probably do that next year
...
The chances of Coria reclaiming his form are less than that of Ferrero`s, which in turn is less than that of Hewitt`s

Re: Coria has fallen out of top 100.... will he come back and if so how high?

He is very good player and good man. He has second chance. He is young. He must practice, find a good coach, he must have more confidence for himself. He must believe, that he is very good and he can win with every player. Even Nadal is not terrible. It depends only on stratego of play and phisical preparation.
Maybe better can it be considered or Nadal is not done and give to Coria a little bit time for tranquillity.

2nd chance for sure, but I could not really predict how high he would come back, top 10 or "only" top 20?

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

I hope he comes back at least to the top 50. I never liked his personality but his best tennis was always entertaining to watch.

Coria's now saying he won't play until at least after the Australian Open and seems to be enjoying his extended rest from the tour. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he does a bit of a Hingis and doesn't come back for a year at least.

Coria is way too good to be down as low as he is. He will be back.

Depending on lots of "ifs"..

Some like he can come back if he gets himself back together, find a good coach and gets convinced that he's actually having a good coach as a beginning.

He can, but 'll he is another story.. i used to enjoy his game a lot anyway.

Do you know if part of this is to work on his marriage? I read on the boards for tennis magazine that he and Carla were having marital problems and she left him briefly. I wonder if that is a factor in him taking some time off too. I think it could be good for him to sort out his personal life before coming back.

I don't see him coming back to the top ten- but I would love for him to be top 25- although that is a stretch. He is a very talented player who I always find very entertaining to watch.

I like a lot of players.

If he recovers the hunger of victories, and sorts out the service problems, then he will be back in top ten, or even top five.

Of course, those are big ifs.

The official version is that his marriage has nothing to do with this. Coria and his last coach (De la Peña) split suppousedly because he still doesn't have the necessary attitude to come back. He is not mentally prepared yet to come back strong.

I think that Coria will never come back, he has an attitude of guy who gives up to try.

He never is going to recover his best level if he doesn't play at all.

In his career it has been all the way around. Few fighted and made efforts like he did in trainings and in matches.

Although I don't know what his attitude towards tennis is now. He is said to be mentally exhausted after all the struggles he has been through last year.

Guille has no chance until he sorts out his mental issues.

Once those are dealt with, he's still got a shot at getting back somewhere near the top, though probably only on clay.
