Coria's injury...

05-17-2004, 07:25 PM
There is an article on an Argentine paper
Guillermo says: "against Ljubicic I felt something on my abs, I got
scared, and I started to serve slowly. I almost retired from that
match and I would have done so if the abs were a problem.(is a
problem or is not a problem?) Last night (saturday) I stayed working
with the kinesiologist in order to stop the pain (SO, THERE IS AN INJURY AND IT HURTS); today (sunday) I changed the serve(IT IS AFFECTING HIS GAME), and luckily it didnt hurt
(BUT IT HAS BEEN HURTING)" explained Coria.

Regarding the injuries he said: "What happens is that things are
going well ( HE NOT STOPPING JUST BECAUSE THING ARE GOING WELL BUT THERE IS AN INJURY)but the only short match was against Ferrer. Many thought
that I was not going to be able to get to the end (MANY THINK YOU ARE NOT WELL) but I did.
For Hamburg I only trained 3 days(HE IS NOT TRAINING WELL). I was not well trained and I had
to face dangerous players. At the begining of the week I never
thought I was going to get so far." ( He NEVER THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO WIN THE TOURNAMENT).

You see there are a lot of contradictions here that's why I am a bit
concern. First of all I think that he has to stop talking about the
injury or really taking care of it. On one side he says that he is
doing fine and on the other it seems that he spends a lot of time
regarding this injury.

I dont think that he will win RG if he is changing his serve, he is
not at his 100%, he is feeling some pain, and he is not training as
much as he needs to. On Saturday he almost retired....and then he
plays against Federer and expects to win. I dont think so!! Cheers!

I hope he proves me wrong - he has done it in the past ! :wavey:

Seems like he has'nt completely recovered after that finals against Roddick. He is one of the favourites at RG and lets hope he can play.
