Do you think Coria´s got chances to get to the finals in Wimbledon?

With his good results at Ordina (he may be the champion tomorrow) and with all the retires of good players at Wimbledon....Do you think Coria has a chance to get to the final?

Sadly, no.

But i would never, never bet (in a figurative way) against Guille in a given match...

Hahaha. No.

He's done well, but his draw is full of tough grasscourters. Getting to the final would mean he would probably have to beat either Hewitt or Federer. Not impossible, but difficult.

that would involve getting past Roger... sorry, don't think so. Getting to a final of a small tourney with a relatively average field does not make him a grass expert lol

But hopefully he does well:)

Im happy if he gets to quarterfinal
If he has to beat Federer :eek: in order to get to the final i would say probably guille wont get there...
Im confindent he could get to quarter though....that would be great for him (and o lot of atp points)

id be happy if he made the quarters :) beating roger on grass seems to be impossible

No. He's got a rather nasty draw, and is unlikely to reach the QF. I doubt he'd even have the energy to reach the final, after all the tennis he's played in the last 4 weeks.

I hope he does do well though. The effort he's put into trying to improve on grass should be rewarded.

he would have to beat like 3 or 4 big servers in a row to reach the quarterfinals, no way.

I think Guille would have to get tremendously luck to reach the final.

But, I am really proud of the way he has played on grass. He wants to excell on all surfaces and although many a player gives lip service to that same goal, Guille has backed up his words with action. :)

If Hewitt can win Wimbledon, it's not totally outside the realms of possibility that Coria could get to the final. Given the strength of the opposition, it is highly unlikely.

Who knows. His chances are low but he's hungry and relieved. This is not RG. He's the underdog here.

Yes he has chances but I dont know if he is getting there 100%. I am sure he thought he was going to be out of Ordina sooner.

Sure, he's not one of the top three or four favourites, but he is certainly one of the guys who has a chance. One should never write off a talent like Coria.

To answer the thread question, yes!

rusedski has already said this week that the courts at wimbledon are really slow (grumbling as he thinks it wont help him or henman) more like the wimbledon hardcourt championships coming up, so Coria might reach the qf or so.

to answer the question: no, not any chance!
(probably winning 's-Hertogenbosch as a leadup tournament doesn't mean he makes the final in Wimbledon)

Nope.

He has had a great run so far at only 1 grass tournament, he might be playing at that surface maybe better than last years, but still....I think he's not yet at the level to be able to reach finals in Wimbledon.

I really like him. But please, let's stay real.

Win or lose in the final at Ordina, Coria has proven that, even coachless, he can adjust his game to grass in a very short period of time. Before this season, he only played one ATP game on grass per year, for a total of 3 games in 4 years. Of course, he didn't win any of those because he didn't have enough time to adjust his game. This year, he took the time to do that and prepare and look what this has yielded him in a relatively short period of time. I think he should be admired for what he has accomplished in Rosmalen.

I read on his official site that he is nursing a shoulder injury, so I'm not so sure how he will do in Wimbledon after such a long week in Rosmalen, but I think in the future, Coria is not a person to count out on any surface. And seeing the photos from Rosmalen, the joy is back in his game. Of course, there is not near the pressure on him to win on grass as there is on clay for him. But it's nice to see him playing so well and enjoying it too.

One more interesting bit of information. Coria/Nalbandian won Jr. Wimbledon doubles in 1999(?). So, the potential is there for him on grass.

but just remember how unpredictable Grand Slam tennis has been, looking back at the FO.

Somehow it was not safe to say anymore who would and wouldn't win the title.

I say i hope he will.
It would be nice to make this year as the season with four different GS winners in both ATP & WTA.

Roger & Justin - AO
Natya & Gato - FO
"Coria" & Venus - Wimby
Roddick & Serena - UO

besides it no longer is a determinant that you have to be as good in a surface to win a GS, you just have to pray that somebody will open the door for you.

This is interesting because Coria is such a natural talent, the kind that makes it look to easy! I like the kind that doesn't look trying hard. :lol: But I digress. Anyways, I think he could reach a Wimbledon final - but not now. I do think he could pull a surprise and advance pretty far for his grass court ability, as in 4th round or qtrs, since he's so natural. Guillermo I think is also the kind to learn quickly and adapt, especially now that he's in the top ranked group. Always keep an eye out for him! :)

Getting to the final...... NO! NO! NO!

Sorry but I think he will get kicked out by Wayne Arthurs in the second round..... :o

But it will help the tournament getting more exciting and interesting if he surprises us to advance further....... ;)

you are trying to say, because they have the same type of game right? but it's different. hewitt has so much more experience and matchplay on grass than coria has.
it's just like coria and hewitt has the same type of game, but coria performs better than hewitt at RG
