What's wrong with Coria?

Ok basically I know the top half of the draw played on Monday - including Coria, but surely an exception should have been made for both Coria and Llodra who played two matches on Sunday. As a result of this and the bad weather he may now have to play his Second Round match tomorrow if he beats Moodie.

Quite a few things I would think:-

a) - he hates grass
b) - the weather and conditions are pretty appalling and everyone seems to be miserable
c) - he's probably tired after Rosmalen
d) - he always acts like that when he's losing or having a hard match anyway :devil:

And yes I'm interested too Paul - in what way have they treated him badly at Wimbledon? Mind you, imo, Wimby never treat anyone particularly well - that's why a lot of the players don't like it.

In hindsight maybe it has worked out ok for Coria but still I feel an exception should have been made for both him and Llodra.

There really shouldn't be. It was their decicion to play the week before a slam, so thats what they got. Had they got a day off and started wednesday and Llodra woulda still lost and Coria woulda had to battle 5 sets to win his opener, would it have been that big of a difference?

06-22-2004, 05:32 PM
In Llodra's case then he probably would have lost as I think the whole of his match was played today, but with Guille basically hes had to play 3 whole matches on Sat/Sun as well as 4 sets on Monday and a stop-start one set shootout today which will probably be carried on until tomorrow judging by the current rain. If he had started his match on Tuesday Id assume he would have had a 12pm/1pm start so would have finished his match. :cool:

One thing I have never understood - and this isn't just about Wimbedon but is true of nearly all tournaments...............if a match is suspended overnight like Coria's was last night - then why, or WHY do they always schedule the resumption for halfway though the next days play? Why the hell don't they let the players who are half way through a match come out first and get their match over with, instead of having to wait overnight and then STILL have to wait for some completely new match to start and finish before they get their chance? I guess there must be a logical reason for it, but I've never known what it is in all my years of watching tennis. Anyone know?

I think it is because they want to give the players who were on the court late the previous night more of a chance to rest. So they have a longer turn around period.

Well this time he was mad because their match was the only one that was resumed.... and well, by the looks of the conditions it shouldn't hav been. So the grass was slick because it was still raining a little, and he slipped and maybe pulled a muscle. I think he has a right to complain in this case, since the players on the other courts never even came out. As for him having to play on monday, I agree with Naldo :)

Getting match practice and getting rest don't really work simultaneously

As far as I know a delayed match is always the second match on the court it was played the day before (at least they say so on Eurosport). There must be a rule for this although I don´t know where to find it.
If the delayed match is the first match the time of rest for players could be very short if they play until late in the evening. And at many tournaments play starts again before noon.

well several people suggested that the reason Tim was not on Centre Court is because Serena HAD to be first so putting Tim on Court 1 made sure he was first and thus was more likely to finish his match before the rain (predicted around 5pm) rolled in. But nah it's only the USTA that schedules preferentially :rolleyes:

The people in the stands are all huddled up in coats and look miserable. I don't think there is anything colder than cold rain. I live in a place now that gets consistently below freezing in the winter, but I have never been so cold here as I have been in places where it rains and is in the 40's 50's and 60's. I get so chilled in those places I just can't get warm.

Well Coria was bitching yesterday about line calls and I know today he had some words for the ump and officials about the conditions of the court throughout the 5th set because he was continuously slipping. And he certainly gave that one official a long stare as he left the court injured. I think he's also frustrated because he was up a set and break yesterday and sitll hasn't put Moodie away, and because he's constantly injuring himself at crucial times in matches these days.

Actually I agree - but must admit today's scheduling was strange - they normally ALWAYS scheulde Tim's matches for 3rd or 4th to attract the biggest TV audiences when people come home from work - not many people can sit and watch TV at 1.00pm. So maybe they were trying to protect "Tiger" from the rain to make up for 2001 :p

And Coria slips because he doesn't move that well on grass. You saw that with Hidalgo and also the guy Mardy Fish played today. That's no one's fault so he could stop whining about that.

If no bad weather had been expected, Tim would have been scheduled on Centre after Serena. I'm sure he was impressed to be on number one for his opener :rolleyes:. Bet the committee didn't think he'd take so long over that match though, that's what's really put paid to Coria's chances of finishing today.

I think we should give him some credit. In order to have a good Wimbledon he went to Rosemalen to get ready. He is giving it a shot at Wimbledon and he is trying his best. Also he is trying to adapt to grass and being slippery makes it harder plus all the damn schedule/rain problems. However, he is not bitching like Marat is doing. Or giving up like Marat did today. It was Henman's fault for not playing better and finishing his match earlier. :)

Lee
06-22-2004, 07:43 PM
Moodie on the same court didn't slip and fall like Coria, so it's more like Coria did not adapt to grass court as well as his opponent. Just like players not used to clay court cannot slide like Coria does on clay.

One thing about Wimbleton putting Llorda and Coria to play on 1st day where their half of draw was instead on 2nd day. Consider the numbers of Wimbleton titles Sampras have and still the committee refused to let him play on 2nd day, there's nothing to complain about.

Guillermo complained about the conditions several times before the last slip, and he received a "STOP COMPLAINING AND PLAY!" as an answer from one of the line men. That made him completly mad and I can't find the words to describe what Guille said in Spanish. :)When Wessley played that volley to Guille's body, Mago almost killed him with words, I've seen him angry before, but he was completely out of control today. What would have happened if it was Mrs Henmann instead of Coria today? They would have invited Tim to have a cup of tea instead of letting him slip in the court - of course.

Roddick slipped on the court today and play was immediately halted. Coria AND Moodie were slipping last night due to the dew on the grass. I think that's why they elected not to start the 5th set. There was at least one, maybe 2, points that Coria won because Moodie slipped yesterday.

If Coria was asking for play to be halted because it was drizzling and then slipped and injured himself, I can understand his frustration. Almost the "See, I told you!" Of course, hind sight is 20-20. Hopefully it's nothing serious and all will be forgotten tomorrow, or whenever mother nature decides to cooperate.

Is it not the tradition of Wimbledon that the Defending Champion always starts the first match in Day 1? I thought that is why Coria and Llodra were scheduled to play on Day 1 too because they happen to be in the Defending Champ's half of the draw. I haven't heard Coria demanding to play on a later day than day 1, but had he had demanded it, it's likely won't be allowed as no one mess with the Wimby tradition :rolleyes: , no?

I do feel for the finalists in the prevous week's tournament. As you can see, Srichaphan and Llodra both won last week and then came to Wimbledon and lost first round. Not to take credit away from their opponents but does make me suspect that playing until the day before the beginning of a slam is no good. But it's obviously their choice to prepare the slam by playing the week before.

I must be confused, because my impression was that Coria wasn't happy that they didn't stop immediately when rain begins? From what I saw yesterday, he was giving the umpire looks when he slipped as if the ump can do something about the condition. But I haven't see today's coverage yet. I feel for him though, he's going to have to play 4 days consecutively just for the first 2 rounds.

Brad Gilbert was just on ESPN saying it rained for 5 minutes before they called the Roddick match. They never went back out on court. Even Andy was a bit frustrated with the wait, and he was only 6 games into the match. It must be 10x more frustrating for Coria who was playing simultaneously to Roddick in the next court. Their match was called back to the court for only a few minutes when the rain came again. It was the 2nd day into the match. He was in the 5th set up a break Was asking for the game to be halted because it was raining again, only to be told to shut up and play. Slips and falls on the wet grass potentially injuring himself and losing the point brining it to 30-30. I mean, who wouldn't be spitting bullets? Cut the guy some slack. He has a fierce competitive nature. That's why he wins matches. It's only natural that all those emotions are going to come pouring out when he's pushed to the limit.

How can a lineman say something like that to a player?...

For me that's the thing with Wimby, they always feel the tourney is more important than the players....

...but in my view they are wrong, because if the Wimbledon final is between, for instance, Naldo and Me, nobody will care (except for the unintentional comedy maybe) ... and I can assure you can go on and on about tradition, but with the way they handle players, if you give the Wimb points and money to Ordina Open, 90% would rather play there...

He had to retire in Miami because of kidney stones. Of course, at the time, he didn't know that was what it was. He thought it was a back injury, and it keeps getting reported like that in articles.

Go Coria! Keep whining! Give the boring repetitive posters on this board something to WHINE about themselves. Man, watching people whine about whiners is hilarious.

Keep up the good work , whiners :)

Anyways, as I have said about Coria time and time again... at least he cares. That is more than can be said about some people. His bitch attitude is what has gotten him where he is now. I think that a big part of the annoyance over him is that some people still dont' think he belongs there. So, whine away ;)

He had to retire in Miami because of kidney stones. Of course, at the time, he didn't know that was what it was. He thought it was a back injury, and it keeps getting reported like that in articles.

He also pulled out in Aukland, but I'm not sure of the reason there.


Auckland was abdominal pain

He is either a whiny psychotic bitch or he thought that the umpire and the line judges were the people who maliciously contaminated his vitamins and shoved them down his throat. They were the masterminds for the elaborate plan to bring coria down.

Wimbledon it's a snobbish English club with their own rules and their own traditions. People treat you bad there. There is practically no motivation to play Wimbledon. :devil: :worship:

I personally think that Coria is very entertaining. I like that he has a fiery tempermant and shows emotion on court. Those stare downs towards the chair ump were awesome! McEnroe infamously complained that a lot of the players are like robots today- but Coria would definatley not fall into that camp,

I am kind surprised, but it seems that Chris Fowler of ESPN enjoys watching him for both the natural tennis skills and entertaining personality as well. Is it just me, or does there seem to be more attention paid to Coria in the US media than there was a while ago?

Yes, he is entertaining. And yes there is more attention paid to Coria at this moment in the US media. He has more fans too. :) :worship:

Coria's coach says he is going to have an ecography to check the groin pain he still has, originated in his fall after slipping in the last point before suspension on Tuesday due to the wet grass ...

...if he got an injury there, he will be throwing some darts in the next few days... really hope is not serious...

His coach also said that his shoulder is also in pain because he is forcing the serve. The groin pain has been there for a while - actually since the AO. I am afraid that it could get worst if he gets further.
