They have different tennis styles and different sportmanship attitudes. They were always standing on opposite sides and they were never friends. Competition was present on court but nothing else.
Coria is known for faking injuries during matches to distract the other player in front of him. Gaston is a guy who is very expressive and if he has something to tell, he does it in your face. That's why they had so many unfortunate episodes on court in Viña del Mar, Buenos Aires and Hamburg.
There's also the fans issue. Gaudio fans are very different from Coria ones. If you like a player it's obvious you will dislike the other. You can see that whenever they face each other, the stadiums look like a football one =O)
