Will Coria bitch-slap Moya in the quarters?

Fairly self-explanatory! :haha: Will Moya get absolutely thumped by Coria or can he avert the inevitable?

I suggest Moya slips some laxatives into Coria's water or something. This would definitely give our resident cry-baby a legitimate reason for a toilet break! :haha:

I'd be disappointed if Coria wins this match easily, although I do expect him to be the winner in the end. Would be quite happy if Moya can pull it off.

Unless Coria chokes under pressure, this should be another routine clay-court asskicking. I expect Coria to end the year as world number two

He could get a shot at number 1 if he improves on other surfaces. I hope that Henman challenges top 3 by the end of the year. He could beat Roddick on most days to push him out of top 3. This isn't just my patriotism getting in the way - Henman played well to get to a high of no.4 but he is playing far better now. :)

Besides, this aint a thread about rankings prospects...it is about an inevitable ass-kicking for Moya, dealt by Coria!

I think Coria is the favourite and i want him to win, but moya is playing good tennis and he also can win. i think the winner of this match will be the champion.

I dont see what is sooo good about Coria's game, I'm assuming that all he does is moonball and waits for the opponent to make a mistake because hes not producing a lot of winners or forced errors, his serve isn't a huge weapon. If Carlos serves the way he did in the 3rd round and keeps the UFE down, he could be the one kicking Coria's ass. Hell, I could overpower coria :)

i reckon the Williams sisters could school him anyday. :)

You know what I think is really encouraging about Coria? Is that he's such a small guy compared to everybody else but that that really hasn't really been a strike against him so far. He can handle power serves and is never afraid to challenge the bigger guys. Although I do think his size has a lot to do with the constant injuries, I think its cool to see smaller sized guys like him and Robredo weighing it in with the rest of them. ;)

Just a random thought.

I saw Coria play in Houston on clay in 02. I saw him take Roddick to three sets even though I didn't think Coria was very good because of his lack of pace. But Coria has picked up the pace, and he's consistend and quick which works on any surface. Little did I know that day two years ago, I was looking at a future world number 1 and grand slam champion, and I'm not talking about Roddick!!!

Umm...I thought Marat was the resident crybaby :confused:

Anyway, too bad Moya and Coria had to meet so early. I mean what's Henman doing in the quarters :eek:

Hey!! Despite the fact that he has played lesser opposition, he has still deserved his place in the quarters, and the feat of reaching the quarters in a slam outside Wimbledon was well overdue. He has deserved the match against Chela, after fighting back from 2 sets to love and a break down in two matches, both against Frenchies and both on the same enclosed, claustrophobic court with a crowd that boos his double faults. He did so well in that atmosphere and deserves credit rather than abuse - afterall where is Roddick, Federer and Agassi?

All too true. Henman is finally finally coming into his own mentally and its great to see. :yeah:

I think that Coria will win... But I am really hoping that Moya can pull this one off and with the entire thing... ;)

If Coria loses, Id rather have Guga win RG than Moya though I like the both of them. I just have a thing for carved clay hearts. ;)
Im easy that way. :kiss:

Yeah, I haven't been able to find anything spectacular about Coria's game, and I think maybe that's why he does so well. There's nothing amazing, but he does everything pretty darn well. Moya has the big serve and gorgeous forehand, but how many errors does he make a match?

On paper, it always seems to me that Moya should beat Coria, just Moya's level of game seems better every time I watch them play. But I think Moya can win if he can stay healthy and confident. It seems to me that Moya either defeats himself physically or mentally before playing players that he should beat easily. (Can we say Roddick?)

Moya or Coria is most likely the final. Guga said after his Roger match that had it gone past 3 sets he might have retired. I don't like his chances against Saffy or David. I would love to see a Guga win but after reading that I don't think its possible. I hope its Moya.

Moya and Coria will leave everything on the court out there. I have no doubt about that. If Moya keeps his error count in check he will win.

I'm suprised by the number of people that think Carlos is going to get flogged....sure, he's not the favourite to win..but come on.....it's Carlos Moya....Coria hasn't been playing *THAT* well lately either....and Carlos is at his near best. *shrugs*

VAMOS CARLOS...:banana:

If Moya is in the form that led to him hoisting the Rome Trophy, there's no doubt he'll win!!! :) C'mon Carlos!!!! :D :woohoo: :banana:

He's living up to his name quite a lot of the time this week...Careless Carlos. :) That won't bode well for facing Coria.

It's like a real final, is'nt it?? Too bad that it had to be a QF. Coria can beat Moya if he is alright without any physical troubles. But with the current form of Moya, I believe it will be him.

For once it w be nice for Carlos to do it to Guille but he doesn't sound too confident, silly boy. I've hardly seen either play so I don't know who's playing better. In fact, is ANYONE playing well this tourney??? OK, so Guga is now...

Will we see this match at all tomorrow?? It will rain also... another factor.

VAMOS, CARLOS!!!

I am wrong in saying this is like a semifinal?

I have to pick Coria in straight sets. Moya is at a mental disadvantage in this rivalry, but, more than that, I think Coria's game just matches up well against Moya, especially on clay. Moya will most certainly need to be serving well and converting all of his chances, which he did not do in the first set of his Robredo match.

I`m a huuuuuuuuge Coria fan, I really care about his matches, and YES I have to admit he is not makin`so many winners in his matches, but I think he has something that the others don`t have: He can drive crazy his opponets, He won`t lose 1 ball in the entire match ;) :p , He doesn´t make unforced errors & He is fast.
It`s so true that there are others players out there that it seems they can beat him, but every match is different, and he is not at the nº 3 spot just coz He waits the unforced errors of his opponents http://instagiber.net/smiliesdotcom/contrib/blackeye/stretch.gif

Moya is going to have to play like Moya of old when he won the title to stay in touch with Coria
