Hmm... it's hard to know what to make of their (Ferrero-Coria) H2H record. At the moment, it's 2-2. This is from the ATP website:
2005 ATP Masters Series Monte Carlo, Clay
Coria 2 6 5 7
2005 Australian Open, Hard
Coria 3 6 2 6 1 6
2003 Monte Carlo TMS, Clay, F
Ferrero 6 2 6 2
2002 Roland Garros, Clay, R32
Ferrero 6 2 6 3 6 3
It seems they never have close matches. Either JC wins easily or Coria wins easily.
I missed their first 3 meetings but I saw their Monte-Carlo match earlier this year. He seemed to start slowly and never really got going in the 1st set. Then, in the 2nd, he went 4-0 up
. But then he seemed to
for some reason
and lost 5 games in a row
. I know Coria played quite well but I'd like to think that had JC been playing his best, he would have taken that 2nd set and gone on to win the match.
The problem with Coria is that, when he gets on a roll, he's impossible to stop. He has the ability to win many games in a row or loose many games in a row. Even against Nadal, in the final of Monte-Carlo, he won 6 games in a row in the 3rd set. If Juan Carlos is 6-0 5-0 up against him, he cannot take his foot off the gas because Coria could win many games back-to-back.
