I saw it!
Feña played a great match! so good he realized he's going to lose playing like that in the first games till 3-3 :o but in the second and the last part of the first he was playing great
Coria didn't played bad
Well played both :yeah:


10-20-2005, 09:23 PM
Did Coria really fight for it?

Not really....

10-20-2005, 09:24 PM
He was playing good.. but he wasn't focused enough! I think Feña played better and that's all coz Coria had great shots too :yeah:

10-20-2005, 09:27 PM
Congrats to Feña on winning against Coria first time! :aparty::banana::crazy:
Coria has no serve and Feña plays many errors,but it's enough to win the match. ;)

Coria was certainly off form, his shots weren't finding the range as normal and the error count must have been high.

Fernando played adequately, great serving display and his forehands were going in tonight, hence his straightforward win.

10-20-2005, 09:33 PM
Fernando was more motivated than Coria, he really wanted to win, he fought even when he was lead, when Coria broke him, Fernando rebroke. Fernando served better, played better, made a lot of faults, but he really wanted to win.

Congrats champion :yeah: You can take your revenge tomorrow on Ljubicic :bounce:

Fernando played magnificently. He started off nervously, quite understandable having lost to Coria five times in a row, and was making far too many errors. Once he settled down and broke Coria, he just got better and better. Coria is not serving well and I think he thought he was coasting for the first set, and didn't expect Fena to come back and win the set. In the second set it was all FG. Coria didn't seem to know how to handle being behind. Well done Fena, now beat Ljubicic.

Good job Gonzo :yeah:

10-20-2005, 09:43 PM
:woohoo: Nobody beats Fernando Gonzalez 6 times in a row!

It wasn't the best performance by Gonzalez, but he believed in his chances even when he was behind twice in the first set and just came roaring back instantly. Coria has played a couple of matches against Gonzo that he has scraped out by the skin of his teeth while playing average tennis, the most salient example being Miami last year, and he wasn't about to do it again. His serving woes continue - not just an alarming rash of double faults, but as the graphic showed he seems completely incapable of serving to his opponent's backhand. You give Gonzalez too many forehand returns to smack, and you're in big trouble.

This result certainly makes things very clear for me - the winner has to come from the bottom half. Gonzo, Ljubo, Nalbo, Karlo... o, what possibilities! By contrast I would only pay to watch one of the quarter-finalists in the top half, and even then that would only be to see his nifty dancing celebrations in person.

Guille :sobbing:

10-20-2005, 10:38 PM
Well done, Gonzo! Very well done! :yeah:

Who says Nalby's serve is the worst in the Top 10/11?

10-20-2005, 10:40 PM
Guillermo :help:

10-20-2005, 10:41 PM
:woohoo: Now please beat Ljubicic!

10-20-2005, 10:54 PM
I knew Gonzos game is just too powerful even for a tricky and stingy Coria. At least Coria tried to make it even on the first set it seems. Great job Fena, now take revenge from last week. ;)

10-20-2005, 10:54 PM
I knew Feña would win this! Finally he gets to improve his (still) embarassing record against Coria...

10-20-2005, 10:55 PM
This tournament officially sucks for me now. There's absolutely no one I care about (actually just a few, but barely no one), but could say that the lesser of many evils would probably be either Ljubicic or Nalbandian, but I can only trust Ljubicic in winning this.

I so hoped Coria would do well here, but his form as of late hasn't been impressive. He has done well in tournaments with some fight to back up his glorious serve and if that isn't on (as the rest of his game), he's just in big trouble.

I like Gonzalez too, so congrats to him.

Good job Feña :yeah: Like somebody said before, "Nobody can take on González for six times" :lol:

Now, take your revenge agaisnt Ljubo!!!! :bounce:

10-20-2005, 11:24 PM
Great match Feña, well done! :yeah:

Finally Feña didn't throw it away unlike he has in the previous 2 matches before this, he was nervous at the start, though he pulled it together quite well and even when he had heaps of chances to break in the 2nd set and couldn't convert, he was easily too good in this match, he will need to lift his game against Ljubo.

10-21-2005, 09:45 AM
Are Gonzalez and Coria the 2 complete opposites you can see on/off court?

10-21-2005, 11:08 AM
sorry for offtopic but "Peoples" could you tell me where could i read whole interview in which andre is saying that ("If I was coaching him, I'd fine him $100 every time he hit a ground stroke. I would.")?

10-21-2005, 11:24 AM
Guille is still a shell of his former self in 2003 :sad: Many losses over 2005 have confirmed this for me! Although, its nice to see gonzo do well :yeah:
