Coria is to the ATP what Dementieva is to the WTA

Maybe they are related............. :rolleyes: But, they are both two top ten players who CANNOT serve and are losing matches as a result.

Coria is such a talented player that it really annoyed me to see him lose so many points due to his serve. I just listened to the commentator refer to 'today's' Coria as a shadow of his old self. I suppose that is true to a certain degree................................. :confused:


Btw, this post isn't meant to take away from Gonzo's win :D

LenaD is closer to Nalby. I'd say Schnyder. Head case, lovely game, not sure about Patty's serve.

Yeah, i agree, Elena is closer to Nalby. She has a similar hard hitting attacking all court game and also she is very popular with fans, like nalby and very unlike Coria!!!

patty actually has a great serve - very unpredictable, plus lefty spin. she often leads the slams in aces. at least i think so...

Whats going on with Coria's serve?

This is so weird... Coria started the year serving very well, faster than ever. But since the match with Massu in the US Open, he has served horribly and has had a million of double faults... it seems some kind of curse, I just don't get it.

How could he develop this kind of problems so late in his career?

Its pretty obvious it is something psychological. Well, we will see if he can overcome this.

Actually, Coria had wrist problems or something leading up to the USO match with Massu, but I'm sure that match only aggrevated it...It may still not be back to normal...

Me three! They both have relatively weak serves but aggressive games whereas El Mago relies on a more defensive game.

completely unfair statement . . . he had surgery on his shoulder last year and is still battling whatever nerve damage there is . . . he spoke openly about not being able to feel the racket at USO . . . to equate that with Dementieva is bullshit.

ITA! Total bullshit to equate the two!

because ...

Elena is hella sexxxxy, always positive on the court, extremely well-liked by players and fans alike, has never been caught doping, and is spirited and funny in interviews and press conferences.

nothing alike!

I'm ageed with you, but Coria said the he didn't want to go to a terapist.

I'm so worried about the problem of injuries Coria has....
he has played quite many games this year...
i'm just afraid the problem will be worsened....

It's a given that it becomes a mental issue when you can't feel or grip your racket . . . I would agree that there is a mental component in play here (is my body going to fail me today? it causes unbelievable anxiety and he can't dig himself out) . . . but given how hard he played at Rome, Monte Carlo, USO, it's hard for me to believe that he is that mentally screwed up at this point. He is disheartened, yes.

Give him credit though . . . not making any excuses for it.

I hope that he doesn't have to have any more surgery . . . and that he isn't being a stubborn fool and trying to play through something and causing more damage.

I kinda see where the anologie is coming from and where its trying to go. Nevertheless, I really dont see that many of the similarities, Elenas game is based on her firm groundies I dont think Corias game can afford him to go for broke he cant generate that much power on the atp tour, or enough to hurt the other top players. Besides Coria has soft hands and thats what helps him greatly, throwing in drop shots, drop volleys and nice angles with both his forehand and backhand. At any rate he would be more like a poor mans version of Hingis.

His speed (defensive game) and guile is what really keeps him inside the top ten.

Serving wise maybe, but cummon Lena is a much nicer person than Coria, who to me is just a cheating weasel. Lena, Kimmy and Lindsay are the 3 nicest WTA players because of their graciousness and Lindasy for her generosity. The worst bitch is Henin "faking" Hardenne she should be the one compared to Coria.. 2 wimps who are champions in gamesmanship..

Lena is the best returner on WTA, she can break anyone out there. Coria is a looser, he's underachieving like hell, think he's done forever.

I agree with you, Coria is 50% speed, 50% malice.
