He was 3-2 up in the 1st set but then lost ALL the remaining games
That's 10 games in a row
This is exactly what I was talking about in an earlier post. Coria has the ability to get on a roll, especially on slow clay courts, where you just have to admire
his ability to grind out every point. JC said himself on Wednesday that the conditions were very slow and, although he didn't admit it,
I think it favours Coria.
Anyway, after that tournament he should be extra determined now
to do well over the next few months. On the faster courts in Canada, I'm sure JC will have the last laugh because, unlike Coria, he gew up on hard courts and knows how to play on them. Who cares about a small tournament like Umag
, it's the big Masters Series tournaments like Canada that JC is after. If he could choose between playing badly in Croatia and playing badly in Canada, he would definately choose Croatia.
We still luv ya JC
Don't get too depressed
It's time to go to work
a week of practise
and then go out all guns blazing
in North America.
