Floored. Utterly floored.

Thank god Coria and Gaudio embraced at the net, I was afraid there might be some problems there.

Coria smashed his racket to pieces and is steaming in his chair as Gaudio makes his victory lap around the court thanking all the fans for getting him through the match. He'll probably cry again when they present the trophy to him.

The first men's final in a long while where we got an exciting, nail-biting, five-setter.

Congrats to both guys. A great moment for Argentine.

I didn't think he would actually keep it together at matchpoint, but he did.. for the first time in the match ;). Congrats to Gaudio... it was nice to see that this final actually became a match instead of Coria giving Gaudio tennis lessons :).
Congrats Gaudio :woohoo:

WOOHOOO!! Gongratulations Gaudio!

I never dreamed that RG finals could be like this, it was something realy special. And the argentinian hymn at the end was realy playing for both of the players - Coria was suffering so much... I always thought he is somehow too tiny to go through the tournaments like this. He should work a bit on his mass and strength in the future, I'd say.

Coria will definitely win RG, dont worry about that :yeah:

I have to say that this was the most amazing match i have ever seen in my entire life, probably joint first with Rafter v Ivanisevic in Wimbledon 2000. Btw, Gaudio played amazing in the third to take it and then the courage of Coria. I have never seen a more courageous player than Coria in the fourth set, he really toughed it out and it was absolutely amazing the fight he put up. also, he was great in the post match interview

absolutely amazing win, WELL DONE GAUDIO!!! :bowdown: :worship:

Hagar
06-06-2004, 07:12 PM
Well, I have a new fave! I thought it was great to see Gaudio smile during the last games.
I don't know how he won this match and he probably does not know himself, but he did it. Not in the most beautiful match but he played a great tournament.

After all he went through he really deserves this title.

I love this guy!!!!!!!

Dirk
06-06-2004, 07:16 PM
Gaudio might not be able to do better on other surfaces right now but hopefully over time he will be able to pickup. I do think now that he has the muskteer cup he will be able to be consistent and do great on clay. I hope he wins another clay title this summer and a clay masters next year as well as contend for another RG. Coria I hope he does win it and he should be able to win it serveral times over his career but one has to wonder how long of a career he will have with these health issues.

Dirk
06-06-2004, 07:17 PM
Oh and his post match reaction was classic. I think he will be an RG crowd fave till he retires.

ale
06-06-2004, 07:17 PM
Great tournament? He didnt win agains Nalb and he didnt win against Coria...i mean...you know..so much dirt talk against Guillermo and he showed something .. i hope people think about the trashing part...I dont know...i dont like when people think the way they think about Guillermo...

Congratulations GASTON :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

Also I can only say that it was the most thrilling tennis match that I have ever seen. I mean, who would have thought it would end like this after the 2 first sets.
I am so happy for Gaudio, but also feeling sad for Coria, but I think Coria will get many more chances to win Roland Garros.
I only hope that this was not a 1 day victory for Gaston, but that he keeps on playing such wonderful tennis like he did in the last 14 days of the French Open.

Gaston really made this an unforgettable day for me!!!! :worship:

Dirk
06-06-2004, 07:20 PM
Oh ok so who beat David then? David was lucky to be there facing a hurt Guga to begin with. Gaudio showed a lot of heart in this event and deserves it. Coria you could say was lucky Moya choked and Tim got tired. Stop making excuses. I don't think Coria faked his cramps at all and its very scary for his future for him to have these health issues.

congrats gaston...it was sad to see guille lost...but gaston may not have many more chances...but im sure guille will definitely win RG one day....well done gaston..:bigclap: better luck next time guille...(can't deny that in tennis luck is very very important)

This is one match where i hate to choose the winner...

I support Coria and hoped that he wins, but Gaudio's come back made me feel it would be a shame for him to lose....

Good job in the end Gaudio!! Great comeback!! :bounce: I could never be as mentally strong as you to creep back and win this!! Thank goodness for the best of five sets, or it would be similar to the women's match, 6-0,6-3!

Oh well, Coria, dun be too disappointed...many champions start off by being runner up and they stomp off with countless grand slam titles after that!!! Come back next year and win it!!! :bounce: :banana:

Go for wimbledon too!! Get that "I'm only good on clay" mentality off your mind!!! Go Coria!!! :bounce:

i was thinking coria seems to be always at the losing end if the match gets longer....he is a better player in terms of fitness if the match can be finished in 2 or 3 sets...but when it comes to 4 or 5 sets...he have problems with fitness and cramps

David played great against Guga, and he was injured during the fourth set too, and while playing with Gaton too. Right now he's in doubt for Wimbledon. Maybe Gaston didn't play amazing in some matches but that doesn't mean he doesn't deserve it. Now Coria also didn't play a match, because Escudé was injured and retired after the first set so...
Besides, Coria was injured but Gaudio lost his focus totally! And he had to gain his confidence back, he saved 2 match points. I think he deserves it!

Conchon
06-06-2004, 07:29 PM
One shouldn't take anything away from Gaston. He played fabulously, especially after Coria's "comeback" in the fifth set.

It was clear that he was injured...

undomiele
06-06-2004, 07:37 PM
Its clear the injury helped out Gaston in giving him chances he otherwise probably would not have had. I cannot blame Gaston for taking advantage for the situation at all but you can hardly say he cleanly deserved it when the injury was so key to his success. Luck clearly played a role in this match.

Surely though, that is the same with almost every tennis match. David was so badly injured in his semi against Gaston that he is now in severe doubt for Wimbledon :sad: But equally you could argue that Marat's injury problems helped David through in their match, and that Escude retired against Coria and helped him too. I am still very pleased and proud of Gaston - Coria will have many other Grand Slam chances I think - but this was probably Gaston's only realistic chance - good luck to him.

Luck clearly played a role in this match.

It's luck yes and no; endurance is an important part of tennis on clay. You have to be able physically to win seven 3 sets matches to hold the trophee, it's part of the game.

06-06-2004, 07:46 PM
The injury did come after Gaudio won the 3rd set and you could see a momentum changed already before the injury came about.

It didn't happen when Coria was rolling on so I'm not sure if the injury was the key of the match. In fact I thought the mexican wave from the crowd, urging Gaudio on the 3rd set was the important turning point for Gaudio. If there's anything for Gaudio to be thankful about, it would have been the crowd in the 3rd set which I believed he did in his speech.

Nevertheless still a bizarre match.

The issue from my point of view is that both players are on a different league...i mean if Nalb had won against Guillermo I would say...he really deserves a Grand Slam...but Gaudio is like a "lucky loser" ...

Gaudio didnt deserve to wn

Comments like this are utterly stupid. Since when is a player "undeserving" of winning? Anybody who makes it to the final of a slam deserves to win. Gaudio may not have as great a career as Coria and he may possibly be a one hit wonder but he deserved to win this title today whether you like it or not.

Coria will have his day in the sun one day soon.

I agree.If Coria wasn't fit enough to win, than Gaudio deserve to win.Fitness and tennis go together.

YoursTruly
06-06-2004, 08:20 PM
First of all, a big felicitaciones to Mr. Gaudio for winning the title! I was right about the match going 5 if they both brought their best today, and they did and this is what happens!! :D I think that it's a shock but even then, it's a combination of factors. There's the fact that Gaston didn't win by fluke but he's a really great talented player who was due for a huge breakthrough as people were waiting for. I mean, he was no Gambill hype, he is for real! Then there's Coria who I think could be having some health problems with the season taking it's toll on him, or he may have been overconfident like walking into the final like it was already his title. I don't blame him in a way because he ruled the clay court season and was brilliant last year as well, but remember he is still young and this is another experience and lesson. But nice to see them bring a nice final! Congratulations to Guillermo and Gaston! ;)

06-06-2004, 08:24 PM
Well, what can i say? I wanted Guille to win.. i was so confident he was gonna win... it's really dissapointing. I can't really talk about it, i fell terrible.
Congrats to Gastón anyway.

Guille, you'll make it next year...

Cris
06-06-2004, 08:27 PM
I agree, Tangy. He played an incredible tennis for these 2 weeks and yes, he deserved to win. It was a chance of lifetime and he didn't waste it. Hope he can be more than a one slam wonder.
I feel sorry for Coria... I don't think he was facking. He's an excellent player and I'm sure he'll win a GS soon.

Ten_Isse_Fan
06-06-2004, 08:33 PM
One of the few matches with all the ingredients to make it a classic ;) Big drama, cramping, five sets, long 5th set, great tennis... The best match I've seen in a while. Congratulations Gastón. Guillermo, you'll get it one day ;) Phew, I was really into that match, I was jumping on the floor :D :lol:

myggen
06-06-2004, 08:38 PM
People are talking about this being a once in a lifetime opportunity for Gaston, but I think the case might very well be so for Coria also. It's not like he is unbeatable even at his best, and with Ferrero back in form (Coria never had a chance against him) and also with players like Nadal, Verdasco and Gasquet emerging there will be many players who will want a say in the future. ATP is so close that no players has a free ticket to glory, not even El Mago.

It really is a shame for Guillermo, he was so close to closing it out,but just could not do it. I really do feel sorry for him and it may take him a while to get over this big loss emotionally and mentally, but he is still very young and next year just might be his year. He tried his best, but just was not good enough and that is too bad for him. He is truly a good fighter and he never gave up even when he thought that he could no longer continue on.

06-06-2004, 09:40 PM
This is terrible
Gaudio does not desreve it
Coria was really hurt and he played anyway, he ggive away the third set he couldnt run :-( and he almost win anyway........
and Gaudio has no idea what he was doing there....tht was kind of cute but it shows who is who there......(see the interviews:Gaudio was laughing he could not believe anything)
And Coria and his face when he lost............that was a champion face
He will get roland garros next years........and several times after that
Gaduio would never won anything else ( i hope im wrong, but he is not a real quality tennis player)
So this was a gift to Gaudio.......faith give him this.......but he sure dont deserve it
Coria do.........now he will be next number one........
Dont worry Coria!!!!!!
you showed youre the best on clay!

Conchon

Gaudio won. He deserved to because he played the biggest points with mental fortitude. Injury plays a part in every sport, and its a feat for both players to overcome, one which Gaudio did.

This match made me one hour late for meeting someone --- but there was no way I could stop watching, lol!

What an amazing, controversial, bizarre and suspenseful encounter that was! I was very happy for Gaudio, who certainly earned it by hanging in there in a very strange situation. His behavior when he won was absolute class.

I suspect that Coria will win it someday...

Very good effort Gaudio, now go onto the grass season and win some matches. :)

I can´t believe it! At last we have a thrilling GS final with both players putting up a great fight (although the quality was not very high most of the time).

No. I didn´t bet on this match or anything :D
Im not trying to insult Gaudio or Gaudio´s fan...actually in this forum ive said a lot of wonderfull things about Gaudio......when he wants he is a great player, no doubt of it.
But that was not the case today :sad: , and honestly I dont think Gaudio desrevs to win a Grand Slam.....:-( See, Gaudio only won three little tournaments in his whole career (he is 26) and probably he would never won a Master Series or any important tournament again, Nobodoy will remember him in a few years......
Coria desreved it, he fought for it, he had terrible cramps and he couldnt do anything , so, well, Gaudio took it. Coria won a lot of Masters Series, Coria is only 22, is number 3 in the world, and truly desreved this Roland Garros, but he probably would take the next. Probably,he would hve a loong and successfull career.
I doubt Gaudio can do the same............and he wont last on the Top Ten. Soon he will be back beyond number 40....... :sad:
Sad, but true
Coria is a real champion
Roland Garros os toooooo big for Gaudio
Is almost a shame

Jinx, I'm sorry but i think you're talking about another Gaston Gaudio.

LCeh
06-06-2004, 10:27 PM
Jinx, why are you thinking like this? What about all the hard work that Gaudio put in all his life? What about all the pressure and criticism laid on him up until this point, that he was a choker? And that he totally turned that around in the biggest tournament in his life? He did not get much support from the government, and wasn't able to play some of the tournaments that he wanted to play. That is a sad road. I think this win is a lo more important to Gaudio than to Coria. Like you said, he probably will win the next one. With Gaudio, not so sure. I think this win means more to Gaudio than to Coria simply because of all the history and all that Gaudio has been through, and I am really happy Gaudio is finally able to lay off the pressure.

Very similar case to Roger. Been said to be really talented, but didn't win a slam, and everybody was criticising him. Then what happened after he won Wimbledon? It was THE turning point of Roger's career, and I hope it will be the same for Gaston.

Y? eso no quita que seas un perfecto imbesil.
Ah y eso de 'underdeveloped education', pensa un poquito mas en la educacion que vos tuviste, porque parece MUY mala si no sabes que la Argentina tuvo historia.



Y vos no tenes algo mejor que hacer que fijarte en esas estadisticas?



El que vos no puedas escribir un buen analisis de partido y un chico/a pueda no es mi culpa.

clásico recurso de las mentes débiles, cuando te sientes arrinconado, ¡insulta! típico. :rolleyes:

tuvo? es decir que ya no tiene? jajajaja
además yo no mencioné país alguno con el cual comparaba la historia de mi país, quien se ha puesto el saco has sido vos cheeeee :lol:

Mira niña podría escribir algo mucho mejor sobre casi cualquier tema (estoy seguro) pero que considere una pérdida de tiempo hacerlo para discutir con chicos como tú es otra cosa.
Por lo tanto viendo que lo están pasando muy mal y que sobrerreacionan a una broma o comentario insultando a quien la hace, me dice que no debo perder mi tiempo con párvulos que se pasan su vida pegados a internet.

Gózenla, enjoy it, Coria lost and I am happy about it !!! :bounce: (or haven't I the right to enjoy it?? and to express it without be insulted? --seems not in this place and with this kind of "kiddie fans") :rolleyes:

Good bye, :kiss: *time to leave the kindergarden* ;)

I feel sad for Coria. Those 2 match points missed by an inch. He will win this in the future. He's too good not to.

You know what I'd like to see next year? Ferrero winning. He is the forgotten man. Everybody is now sad with Coria and his injuries, but what about Juan Carlos and his injuries, not only in RG, but in the whole year? Remember him... Get well son Juan Carlos!

Well done Gaston!! I was really upset when he went down 6/0 5/1 because after all that hard work to get to the final, he was bowing to the inevitable slaughtering...but to come back like that is awesome and truly inspirationa. I, like most people, neverf expected a comeback to the extent that he would win the match - it is unbelievable. However, although i don't want to ruin his awesome day, I'm afraid he'll probably not defend that title but still, what an achievement!!! :worship: Gaudio.

He probably will win but you never know - there are other good claycourters that will have the belief to beat him now, and it has been done in a 5-set match. When Ferrero comes back he will be a force to reckon with, for instance. And Henman has shown a way to seriously rattle Coria on clay, and i'm sure some players will take note of that and maybe use it against him. Also it is important to remember that Coria has the physique of a Hewitt and in a few years his speed will not hurt opponents anymore, so he has to win the French Open by the time he is 25 i think..no later. He should do it...but look at other talented players that have continually been denied Slam success - Henman, Rusedski, Todd Martin, Philippoussis etc.

Oh yes, a Ferrero-Coria final with both at 100% phisically would be great. No doubt, the two best clay-court players.

Awesome final. A miracle comeback, an injury overcome, match points saved, a monster upset over the favorite, an extended fifth set in a prestigious history-making final. It was great to watch.

Very happy for Gaston Gaudio. He kept himself fit enough to play a series of seven best-of-5 sets over a fortnight. And Coria, I feel bad for him, but you know he'll have a great chance next year. And who knows, he might do it at the USO.

Coria is even smaller than Hewitt... but I'm not sure why his speed won't hurt opponents anymore. Are you saying that he's going to lose his speed? Hewitt has lost some of his, but that's because he tried to alter his game. Regardless, that still gives Coria three more years by your calculations. I think he'll do it ;) He's way too conceited and proud not to ;)

He should do it...but look at other talented players that have continually been denied Slam success - Henman, Rusedski, Todd Martin, Philippoussis etc.

Henman ... underachieved outside of Wimbledon until this week, and had the misfortune of playing at Wimbledon during the Sampras era.. uh, and the Goran revival. He also lacks Coria's competitive spirit, imo... although I must say, he impressed me this past week. he was like a whole new Tim Henman ;)

Rusedski was never that great, imo. Great serve, meh everything else.

Mark lacked Coria's drive as well. Mark was more interested in chasing skirts and fast cars for a good chunk of his career. Coria is far more mature in tha sense.

Dunno what to say about Martin ;) Wait... yes, I have it now. Todd was a bit of a choker who had the misfortune of playing during the Agassi-Sampras era ;)

GASTON!! (sorry i'm a bit late, lol.) :D :woohoo: :banana: :bigcry: I think i may cry myself, how Gaston fought from down 2-0 in sets, down 3-4 in the 3rd, breaking Coria when he served for the match TWICE, and saving 2 match points!!! You defied all odds, and still came through. Valiant for Coria to fight and nearly win after he had cramps in the 4th, where he was forced to serve at half speed. I think ive got a new favourite. now!! :) For once we have a classic 5 set thriller in the final of a GS, one of the best matches ive seen in a long, long time, so much drama, back in forth in that final set. I shouldve taped it, but after set 1 and part of set 2, i thought Gaston, would be finished in straight sets. Thanks for proving me wrong!! :yeah:

Vos tambien me insultaste. Te crees que no se que quiere decir "che" en mexicano?
Si, tiene. Me equivoque al tipear.

ESA es la tipica... 'ay pero yo no dije nada de...' yah right. No soy estupida, se a lo que te referiste. No te trates de defender con excusas tontas.

Si, decirle tramposo a Coria es una opinion muy buena eh. La verdad que me toco. Y no me la estabas dando a mi, sino al foro en general. Entonces digamos que 1- no te importa (en ese caso estas invitado a irte) 2- no tenes algo interesante que decir y saltas con la primera estupides que se te ocurre.

Denuevo, si todos somos nenes, no vengas y nos haces a todos un favor. Eso que dijiste no fue una broma, fue una falta de respeto hacia un jugador que ni siquiera da gracia.


Vos ves a alguien aca festejando que Coria haya perdido? y refregandoselo en la cara a los fans? No.
A mi no me molesta que estes feliz porque gano Gaudio y porque perdio Coria, pero trata de mantener la compostura y ser un poco mas respetuoso tanto hacia al jugador como hacia los fans que estan mal por la derrota.

If we're in kintergarten, why did you even bother to come here?

Ok, I am sick of all the Coria whiners ( not all of the fans) who are trying to take away from Gaudio's moment.

Coria will win Roland Garros one day and I don't doubt that, but he really needs to get physically stronger and it was his own fault that he cramped and no one elses, he didn't manage the situation well mentallt and I don't blame Gaudio for thinking Coria was up to his old tricks.

Gaudio just hung in there and finally after all the shit from the media and some people about his choking (myself included), the horrible DC performance in Spain, not fulfilling his talent he has come through and I am glad he can enjoy the moment.

It wasn't a great match, but it had plenty of drama and I for one was happy with the result. For Coria I hope he learns from this and it will improve him as a player and a person an experience like this.

Congrats Gaudio!! :yeah:

it was an unbelivable tournie imo, it couldn't end up diferently.... omg! well, everyone was sayin' as if: "oki, without Roggi obviously Coria is the fav." I mean, pple were like: "Coria is already the winner"!!!! And Gaudio "surprise" me pretty much :eek: When I started to watch the match Coria was winning 60 63 and I thought: "it can't end up like that.... too obvious!" then: " I won't watch this anymore buuh!". Afterwards I heared Gaudio won and I screamed and laughed at the same time: "I can't believe it!!!!!!!!!" hahaha... Anyways, I see this match as a revenge of Gaston. Actually it was a huge revenge 'cause they aren't friends at all, and they'd fighted already, even Gaston's bro with Guille, but I guess it's over now, isn't it??

Okay, Gaudio is in fact, the king of Rolanga!! Thank you man!! You really had the guts to reveled the situation! :wavey:

Thanks GAUDIO for made Rolanga wonderful!! More than it is already. ;)

I just saw the match and it was so exciting, even though i pretty much knew who won already! Gaston really deserves it for the amazing week hes had! He did so many things he's hardly ever done before!
He won 3 five set matches, one of them coming back from two sets to love and a break down! :eek:
I was soooo happy for him when he won, he looked like he couldnt believe it, and was just so ecstatic.
I really hope he'll play to his potential now and his choking days are over!

The only other guy who I can remember laughing in the 5th set of a Grand Slam Final was Goran Ivanisavic at Wimbledon 01~ he seemed to think it was hilarious that he'd serve a double-fault followed by an Ace :p :cool: !

Coincidentally both Gaudio & Ivanisavic were long-shots to win their respective Slams & both won 8-6 in the 5th set of dramatic finals :worship:

This is good Rebecca~ finally something we both completely agree on; when I was watching Gaudio/Coria i had a sense of De-Ja Vous because i knew I would be thrilled for the winner & shattered for the loser :) :sad: !

We agree on many things. You just aren't always patient enough to notice. I gave you a lengthy reply the last time you called me a "lleyton hater", btw. I don't think you read it, sadly :) It's likely for the best.

I was rooting heavily for Coria, but by the time the fifth set rolled around, I didn't want either guy to lose. And it was impossible not to be happy for Gaudio when he won. It was quite a moment.

Thanks Rebecca~ oh yes I remember reading the post you're referring to; i didn't reply because I didn't have the energy at that time. However I recognise you are a fair person & not as judgemental as some other posters I referred to that time.
Lets see~ you & I agree that Hewitt, Ferrero, Coria & Gaudio are fantastic players with contrasting styles & all good for the game :worship: ;) ^yes??

In the future I'll try to recognise more common ground :angel: !

Chloe le Bopper
06-10-2004, 06:33 PM
Yes, those players are all good for the game in my humble opinion.

I have not expressed truly negative thoughts about Hewitt for about a year and a half now, and the ones I expressed that long ago were just bitter, which I admitted a day later. That is why I get extremely pissy and curt with people who try to claim otherwise. It's lazy. It's like they can't be bothered to read my posts so they just classify based on my lack of love for him. Just because you don't love a player doesn't mean that you loathe them.

CmonAussie
06-10-2004, 06:36 PM
BTW~ I was rooting for Gaudio until the 5th set; then I thought if Coria could still win despite his cramps I would support him, but I was sad to see Gaston blow his chance; ironically it was Guille who blew those 2-match points-->> then I wanted Coria to find a way back again... However once I realised Gaudio was going to claim it I just prayed that he would hit a winner on match-point; because such a classic match deserves to be won decisively on the final point (always sad if someone double-faults or stuffs up to hand victory to the opponent).

In the long-term scheme of things I still believe Coria will find a way to win RG~ perhaps next year?! So in that sense it was better that Gaudio take it this time....
Also I was getting tired of predictable Slam Finals~ since there had been quite a few where the favourite won easily in recent memory. Good to see Gaston found a way to alter what everyone considered the inevitable!

Chloe le Bopper
06-10-2004, 06:45 PM
I believe in Coria too. A lot of people are writing him off, but it's the same old BS when somebody loses their first slam final. "The game will pass him by". *snore*

In the long run I think it's better that Gaudio won. If he hadn't, it would have been an epic choke by him in the fifth, imo. I don't think Coria should have seen any matchpoints whatsoever if not for Gaudio being so nervous. Yes, they were both nervous, what with all the footfaults coming out... but a victory like this might make Gaudio finally believe and live up to his potential.. not just be a dangerous floater playing at a fraction of his talents. For Coria.. well, he already had that self belief and will still ahve it after this. This was a true test of character for him, I believe. He'll learn from it (he actually has taken the time to watch it already, believe it or not. Not sure I'd want to see it if I were him, but to each his own :lol:)

Coria..... I just can't believe it man --the Gods were against you but you will win roland garros!!!

Wow, what a match. Definitely the strangest grand slam final I can ever remember watching. At times it was so absurd it felt almost like it was a club match not a grand slam final. Great result though, and I will never forget the deluded frenzy many Coria tards were in after the final. It was almost as bad as some of the pork dorks :D

This is the match I'm pretty sure I watch the most just because of how crazy it was. I loved Coria but found Gaudio's game to be pretty to watch when he was on.
