apparently he gave some sort of press conference, announced his official retirement, said his very happy with the decision and that his two best matches on the tour were vs Agassi in RG and vs Nadal in Rome.

Well actually he has been a "retired tennis player trying to come back" since late 2006, so this is hardly surprising. Obviously the fact that he announced his retirement officially today doesn't prevent him from trying to come back again in the future (hardly any chance of succeeding though), like Pim Pim did recently.

Anyway, he was a big prick but a very talented tennis player, infinitely more watchable than Nadal. We could use some Coria right now in the clay season.

Probably one of the most overrated players on MTF.

Though it's pretty amazing he won two AMS, made it to a slam final and reached No.3 having defeated as many top-10 players in his career as Srichaphan did -- 10 (Moya x4, Agassi x2, Nalbandian x2, Henman, Schuettler).

You seriously need to gain some perspective. That maybe the saddest/pathitic thing I have read for some time on this forum.

I find it funny that my comment saying goodbye to the cheat/drug user (FACTS) was quickly deleted by a MOD who wants to see just some Guille ass-kissing in this thread :rolleyes::o.

It's not like I am amaking allegations, those are facts. ROME 2005 quarter final vs Agassi, he pointed to an invisible ball mark and trid to cheat Andre out of a point when the ball was actually in the court. Andre said that was the worst spormaship he'd ever seen in his long illustrious career. And need I mention the ban for drugs?? Not a surprise considering the track record of his fellow country men expcept Dave whose body fat does the job.

No, because if you're Chinese, Dalai Lama is as much of a criminal as Coria is for tennis players and fans.

This way of relativising things makes us lose perspective. If you're caught with a banned substance in your body and you're an athlete, you're doping. There's no excuse, as some people might think.

There's no excuse, as some people might think.i'm beginning to think you are not just being willfully misrepresenting of the facts, but that you dont have any background in the story. so i will tell the story.

guille was banned when the atp found a low dose of nandroline in his system. Because he factually didnt take any illegal substances, they looked at what he DID take, and a 'GENERAL MULTI-VITAMIN' sold by the Universal Nutrition Company in NEW JERSEY, USA manufactured this vitamin with a low dose of Nandroline in it, which was not marked on the bottle. The ATP immediately pulled back the suspension to a matter of months rather than years. But a full trial had not been undertaken. Coria finally got that company to court in 07, as the legal system is not fast, and received an implied (but undisclosed official amt) multi-million $ settlement from the company, admitting their error in manufacturing that vitamin with traces of a steroid in it. GUILTY = Universal Nutrition, INNOCENT = GUILLERMO CORIA.

now quoting the NY Times: According to The Associated Press, that statement quoted Judge Bradley J. Ferencz of the State Superior Court as saying that the sides agreed that Coria’s positive steroid test was the result of “inadvertent and unknowing ingestion of a banned substance.”

Now, yes you are right - some view the Dalai Lama as a criminal. Most do not, and see the system victimizing him as criminal. Likewise, YOU still seem to view Coria as having taken criminal actions. Most of us are letting you know, that if justice is served, he is NOT in any way guilty as charged. So now you should have the full story here-in to see why your statement: "If you're caught with a banned substance in your body and you're an athlete, you're doping" is ENTIRELY FALSE, and also now see that it is NOT relevant to Coria's innocence whether or not the ATP failed to erase its claim of steroid use to cover its own ass and not seem like an unfair and uninformed organization, taking haisty action about something they had not properly investigated, and ended up assuming guilt before the facts had been adequately presented. And seriously damaged -obviously, to this day- the reputation of one of their top players, in the process.

Basically from the lawyer's practise perspective, I don't wish even to the worst enemy to be in the situation when they do something in an error for the facts and their bad will cannot be proved by anything, but they still have to face a process, lose the reputation, and after declared innocent because no other verdict can be announced they are forever stigmatized by the urban knee-jerk-prophets. Happens in everyday's life a lot and about more serious cases than a few drops of a pee.

As for Coria, annoying as he was, I loved his game especially seen live. Magic was a good word to describe.

edit - in all honesty, the worst about Coria were his zealot delusional fans like these days no other player has.

Unknowing ingestion? There's no such thing as that, unless someone forced him to.

As he wasn't forced (or he'd prove it somehow), he's a cheater.

Yes- it was unknowing because it was not listed on the ingredients. He trusted the label. It turns out the company was not labeling properly- which was their fault. The company was found to be in error and settled for the damage.

So unknowing is the proper term here.

But of course- being negative rules the day here at MTF.

Muggassi was a bad loser, anyway. He got what he deserved a bagel in that particular TB.

I remember him back in the late 80s or early 90s he said loudly about the umpire "this f**king guy is unbeliavable". Then again there was a match when he was disqualified from the match after swearing three times one after another. Muggassi is not exactly a role model as you made him to be.

Are you speaking of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egTEQ1_Sg3U? The ball was not "in the court", it was on the line, this kind of stories happen all the time at clay events, I doubt it's the worst thing Agassi has ever seen in his "long illustrous career". Coria does show a mark, it's the wrong mark, OK, but it's not as shocking as you and Agassi are making it out to be.

Coria has done much worse in his career, people only made a big deal out of it because it was against Agassi. ^^

I don't really get what happened with him in the last couple of years, I totally understand he had lost the passion at one point and needed a long break, but I don't understand why he never was able to bounce back afterwards, why he always gave up after a couple of bad results again (he wasn't playing so poorly one year ago in Casablanca and Paris), why he never was able to fix the issue with his serve...
I find it quite frustrating to stop like that, with the problem still unsolved, but whatever works for him.

Pretty pathetic many people refuse to learn that he was CLEARED of the doping allegation.
Childish, really.

He'll always be guilty in my book.

Yes- it was unknowing because it was not listed on the ingredients. He trusted the label. It turns out the company was not labeling properly- which was their fault. The company was found to be in error and settled for the damage.

So unknowing is the proper term here.

But of course- being negative rules the day here at MTF.

He should've known what he was taking.

he said loudly about the umpire "this f**king guy is unbeliavable". Then again there was a match when he was disqualified from the match after swearing three times one after another.

seriously dude, these posts display the kind of denial that would send a psychotherapist out the window, except that he would realize there's an IQ level issue here.

Someone takes a multivitamin which doesnt list an ingrediant, and yet you take the time to return here & post time after time after time, in an inabiltiy to show comprehension levels in line with our species. But to simplify, that equates with "unknowingly ingesting" something.

Guilty in your book is fine... because your book seems to have no accuracy guages or validity.

i kind of agree, there was a 'dive into the water' resolution to the issues that remained, but it is certainly true that you must give 100% to make it to the level he was at, and may not have had the real motivation for why he needed to go through that other than tp prove something, as guille's girl said...and he didnt REALLY need to prove it. PLUS, a man of his pride.... I dont think he could stand there and lose (or even need to struggle against) this low caliber of opponents. Even a near victory could be humiliation in his mind... because he should have been clobbering these kids 6-0 6-2. Somehow beating 'I-am-an-eternal-nobody' by scores of 4-6 7-6 6-3 is not appealing or rewarding to him.

HOWEVER, i still believe that the pressure of on-looking eyes & expectation were the cause of the lack of motivation, and i am not 100% sure that this retirement is a keeper. I believe it IS a retirement more than at any other stage in his questioning, certainly... but SOLD on the idea that that hero of a man (in his identity) is not going to rise & overcome a fight?? No... he could still come back & go on a 4 tournament winning streak on clay & shock everyone.

Expected but still sad. I don't think he ever got over losing the Roland Garros title. Thanks for the great tennis matches and I wish him well in his new life.

Coria said there was a "strong issue" that led him to lose his motivation, and that he would only reveal in an autobiography in the future. I wonder what was that? The rumours that Carla was cheating on him?

I don't care how he justified the fact that IT WAS FOUND AN ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE IN HIS BODY.

Can't you grasp that?

If you kill someone by accident, you're still sent to jail because of it. If you get doped by accident, you're still a doper.

sad sad sad. wish he'd beaten that clown Gaudio.
I'm happy he didn't.
One of the biggest prick to be ever seen on ATP tour. Very happy to see him retire. He's not the routine tantrum throwing sort, but he's something worst, a sneaky little evil ****.
I sooo agree.

While Coria's achievement on clay shouldn't be forgotten, his gamemanship in certain matches which was at times outrageous shouldn't be forgotten either.

I won't miss him. :)
