Yes, Coria played quite a match- easily his best match so far.

He really did match Roddick in that first set and also in the second after he was match point down at 0-5 he managed to win 3 more games before yielding.

There were quite a few outstanding rallies between them- it was a really good match though their match last year in Houston was still better IMO.

And kudos to Lars Graf (the chair umpire) for managing to keep a lid on things especially when Andy started arguing with him endlessly regarding a bad call. I think as an umpire a match between Roddick and Coria would be one that you would like to avoid having to umpire for as long as possible.

No, I didn't expect him to win, but he did really well today, considering his serve, and being out for monthes. Though Coria did give me alittle more hope in the tight 1st set. ;)

C'mon now, where would tennis be without crazy people like Coria and Roddick?

:lol: I agree, although if I was an umpire, I woulden't put up with any shit from either one. I cant stand when players do that, especially those two, and it makes it worse when the call there complaing about turned out to be correct, anyway.

Congrats to Andy on breaking yet another record. :yeah: From the ATP site: "Andy Roddick is the first player since Goran Ivanisevic in 1998 to top 1000 aces for the year." Nice work, duckie. :worship:


:o

Somehow I doubt you'd be :o if someone other than Roddick had this record. ;)

I dont know what match you guys were watching but Coria was amazing and kicked the #2 player in the world's butt when they were confined to the playing of points. And in line with guille's purposes for playing houston, each match was more complete and confident than the one prior.

In this match, Roddick was completely out-HIT in the first set--its just those bombs of serves that kept him even in the score. But once in the pont, Coria was way ahead. Considering these are the first complete matches he played since Wimbledon, it was quite remarkable. He also showed a total champion's mentality coming back in the 2nd instead of being disheartened and giving up. And 3 aces for him at this stage is also very hopeful.

I wonder if andy is ever embarrassed that he gets so outplayed and only his dumb serve keeps him afloat and then wins his tiebreakers 70% from aces and service winners; all his play is done for him on one stroke, all power. When he has to back it up with play, he is not as successful. It IS a winning shot of course, the serve is part of tennis--but winning by ace is not particularly admirable in the context of all the shots it takes to master tennis. I'm npot in this case speaking just of the Coria match of course but often and in general; in houston alone, he had 4 tie-break set wins in only 6 sets, which means he aced his way through but likewise does fail in those sets to ever break his opponent once they are actually playing points to determine the better player.

As an aside, the funniest point was the one at the start of the 2nd set which coria lost with a drop; andy returned a serve --which took a strange bounce and came into the body-- by bending his knees and hitting a midget's overhead. it was such a lame duck when it landed that coria had an easy put away and hit his only poor drop shot of the match at the easiest moment to do so. Obviously, this was a touch of the lack of recent court experience coming into play, but it was a ridiculous point from both sides of the net and coria just put his head under his arms, as that goofy mistake brought about 15-40 which became the turning of the tide, in providing andy with his first break of his serve.

I got to see the last 8 or so games of the first set (didn't get to see the tiebreak) and it was a very fun match to watch. The commentators were enjoying it and the crowd was really enjoying it as well. Both players applauded one another. The first set of the Nasdaq 100 b/w Andy and Guille was a lot of fun too. I really like how they play one another and hope to see a good match between the two of them with no injuries/recovering from injuries.

It is nice to see Coria back. I know a lot of people don't like him but I really like watching his game and he is so expressive out there. They said in the papers that in the second set when he was down 5-0 he served an ace and threw up his hands and did a playful celebration. I actually think he has matured since the French Open and has had a good attitude about his wins, losses and injury.

Anyway- really enjoy watching these two play one another and look forward to seeing more of their matches in the future.

1000+ aces in a year is obviously very impressive, but he hasn't actually broken the record itself: the record is 1477 aces in a year, which Goran served in 1996.
