Stats:

Both reached 1 FO semi and 1 FO final (both lost in the latter from 2 set leads)
Both reached 2 GS QFs on hardcourt (Medvedev reached a further QF at the FO), both reached 1 4R at Wimbledon
Medvedev won 4 clay masters (+ a final in Paris MS), Coria won 2, but reached 4 other finals (+ final in Miami MS)
Medvedev won more matches in his career, but Coria had a greater career high ranking (4 and 3 respectively)
Coria was ranked inside top 10 for 3 years (2003, 2004, 2005), Medvedev just the 1 (2003)
Medvedev won 11 singles titles, Coria won 9


so IYO, who is the greater player, both on the red stuff and overall?




and I know Medvedev is spelt wrong in the poll. SORRY

and if FO final opponents were swapped around, i.e. Agassi-Coria and Medvedev-Gaudio, I reckon Med would have a slam.

is this an exho or are they following recent trends, coming out of retirement ? :confused:

it's both a comparison of their careers and if you like, a hypothetical match with both of them at their peak... they're not actually playing :)

Coria said he does not dismiss a comeback on the Tour though.
