Viña del Mar R32: Coria vs. Cuevas. Who will win?

01-27-2008, 12:17 PM
Last ATP match for Guillermo was back in August 2006, will he finally get his serve and game back? Will he able to beat current number 114?

Hope so. Ánimos Mago! :bigclap:

well the outcome depend on How well -or How bad lol- Coria serves

01-27-2008, 12:21 PM
According to someone (reliable source? :lol:), Guillermo has been playing stunning tennis in practice, you wouldn't guess that he'd been sidelined for so long. But matches are an entirely different scenario.

If he can get his serve to land in the box consistently, then naturally he's the favourite.

Articles (with quotes from Coria) have also said that Coria usually plays well in practice but that he can't perform at all in matches.

These articles are from the last time he played those challenger events.

01-27-2008, 12:42 PM
Coria for the title.

01-27-2008, 12:47 PM
Please make a comeback Coria. I really miss you!!!!!

01-27-2008, 01:09 PM
Cuevas in 2. Coria will win 8 games maybe.

01-27-2008, 01:18 PM
Coria played ridiculously bad in Aracaju, Brazil, final of last year.

01-27-2008, 01:19 PM
Go Cuevus. :banana:

01-27-2008, 01:24 PM
hopefully Coria, but Cuevas should grab this one

01-27-2008, 01:25 PM
This is actually kinda a tough draw for Coria, Cuevas although ranked 114 can actually play.

01-27-2008, 01:27 PM
I'm sure, even when he was hitting all those DFs, he was never doing it in practise. It's a mental problem with Coria and he needs to feel more relaxed playing official ATP maches. If this event were still Round Robin, I would fancy his chances a little better.

01-27-2008, 02:13 PM
Pablo in straights.

*Viva Chile*

Cuevas in straights 7-6(0), 6-0 and with Coria doing 20 DF :tape:

01-27-2008, 02:49 PM
Unfortunately, Coria will make lots of double faults, get frustrated and retire before finishing the match. At least, that's pretty much what happened when he played some challengers a few months ago.

01-27-2008, 03:41 PM
Welcome back Coria

01-27-2008, 03:56 PM
I think he will win this match, but will struggle deeper in the draw

01-27-2008, 03:56 PM
Cuevas 6-4 ret. after Coria hitting 25 DF in one set :sad:

01-27-2008, 04:49 PM

I cannot stop laughing at you Chileans and Gonzalez fans too, bitter perhaps because Coria railed up 5 match wins in a row against Gonzalez before losing in 2005? :lol:

i will be pulling for Coria, but he has a tough match.

Vamos El Mago !!! :bounce:

01-27-2008, 08:03 PM
I want Coria to win this, but Cuevas will start as the favourite.

01-27-2008, 08:13 PM
Vamos Pablo :dance:

Can't say I've been a Coria fan, but I'm hoping he wins this. He needs the confidence boost right now. :yeah:

When was the last time Coria hit an ace?

Cuevas 6-4 ret. after Coria hitting 25 DF in one set :sad:

damn, 6-4 after recieving 25 donations ? how bad would Cuevas have to play to only win the set by one break ?

01-27-2008, 10:46 PM
Coria can be a bit of a punk, but when he's playing well, he's great to watch. Hopefully he can win this match and pick up some confidence.

That's said, I voted for Cuevas by retirement :rolleyes:

01-27-2008, 11:45 PM
Good luck Guille.

Cuevas should win, but it's great to have Coria back and hopefully he can return to something close to his old self, even if it is unlikely.

01-28-2008, 01:39 AM
Vamos Guille! :unsure:

01-28-2008, 01:47 AM
Please Guille , close the mouth to all

01-28-2008, 06:58 AM
damn, 6-4 after recieving 25 donations ? how bad would Cuevas have to play to only win the set by one break ?

Coria could break Cuevas' serve 4 times. Before taking the long break, Coria's overall game was still decent except for the serve.

01-28-2008, 07:39 AM
Coria 7-6 in the third.

01-28-2008, 08:54 AM
Hope Coria does well.

01-28-2008, 11:18 AM
Guille will win this one! 6-3 1-6 7-6 (7-4)

01-28-2008, 12:15 PM
When was the last time Coria hit an ace?

In R32 Umag, July 24, 2006. :sad:
