So, Whats Going On With Dent And Coria?

How come these two have just dissapeared? What were the initial reasons for why they went away?

Coria still has a ATP ranking but not Dent so does he intend on returning soon?

What was Dent's best Grand Slam result and should we expect these two to return to the Top 20 sometime in 2007?

How bad are their injuries that are apparently still keeping them out?

Thanks.

Re: So, Whats Going On With Dent And Coria?

Dent had back surgery about a year ago, he has not played since then, so that's why he has no ranking. Apparently it was MUCH worse than anyone had originally anticipated. He played a couple exhibitions at the end of the year and had entered Hopman Cup, etc., but apparently his back is not cooperating. He's now apparently working as a 'coach' at Bollettieri's and is out "indefinitely" according to The Tennis Channel.... it's looking more and more like he might not come back at all.

^^ I think TR.net said the same thing about Dent. That he may not be coming back.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

And Coria? Surely a player that was once ranked #3 and consistently qualified for the Tennis Masters Cup should at least be able to return to the Top 20?

So whats the problem with him?

No clue, I don't follow him, sorry.

His head said stop. Lack of motivation.

and

Shoulder surgery + change of serving technique = million double faults = low confidence.

He is working with a psychologist and it seems he will be back in Houston.

I don't know about Houston but it seems he asked for a wc for Monte-Carlo

Re: So, Whats Going On With Dent And Coria?

Coria caught an injury of muscle in leg during training. Maybe he has a pause, because of that. I hope, that he will be healthy and play soon.

Re: So, Whats Going On With Dent And Coria?

I think it's a real shame if Dent can't make any sort of comeback - he was never my favourite player but he's still young and it would be very sad if his back prevented him from ever playing at this level again.

Re: So, Whats Going On With Dent And Coria?

I was also never a Dent fan but he was the only serve-volley player of this generation. It's a shame to see him disappear. I think those two losses to 18-year old Murray must have dented his confidence a bit too much.
