:D :) :wavey: How many more points does he defend this year? Lets hope he is out of the top 100 by the Australian open, and out of the top 50/60 for the first master events of next year...

That is one of his more dreadful losses...

how many double faults did Coria manage to serve today? Surely somewhere in the 20's

He had a few match points in the second set when Sabau was serving at 4-5.

How many more points does he defend this year?Just a first round win in Madrid and a first round win in Basel to "defend" until the AO.

He is down to 83 which must be among the fastest drops in tennis in 1 year. Top 10 to barely inside top 100.

Didn't Coria receive ranking points during last year's Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai?

But he didn't qualify for semis so he doesn't have so many points to defend there.

It's a completely disaster.

just checked and he has 75 points from Madrid, 5 from Paris, and 25 from Basel.

He needs 6 withdrawls to get into Madrid, and he wont get into Paris.

I knew his real level all along. But only the smart people listened ;)

I just don't know when this will end. He didn't even serve that many double faults today yet got broken almost every service game. He's able to break his opponents at will, I think he broke 9 times today and still lost. It's just such a huge issue with the serve now, and god know if he'll ever be able to sort it out.

I'm sure he is not going to play any Carpet Tournament.

I would like to see him playing Buenos Aires Challenger.

Well that may be the case. I guess at least he can say his "fake" level was higher than Gonzalez is ever going to get. :p

Coria has a really good serve. Too bad for tennis that he feels obligated to throw matches.

I remember the first time I saw him throw in a purposeful double fault.
Against Ginepri at the 05 US Open. Had match point I think.

He's a player who would rather be known as the greatest underachiever in tennis history, than actually let hard work take him to the top.

You have the wrong idea about Coria. He is definitely a hard worker. He is not a Rios/Nalbandian kind of player. He always wanted to get to the top and worked a lot for that.
His desire is bigger than the one of the other Argentines outside Cañas maybe. He always put a lot on pressure on himself, and that is not good for him, specially now.

Horrible match from Guille :sobbing:

I can't believe he's come to the point of lossing to Sabau on clay, it's really sad.

But, i still believe he will get better again (yeah, maybe i'm being too optimistic :p)

Maybe he needs some time to get back in shape before playing events :shrug: This has been going on for a while and some of the players he lost, or almost lost to, are beyond embarrassing.

Yeah, the loses to Gremelmeyer, Vik, Przysiezny and Sweeting also come to my mind (the last two losses were because of retirement, but it's horrible either way :sobbing: )

Loosing to Di Mauro and Ramirez Hidalgo (twice) is not a very good sign either :sad: .

And the hanescu match at the australian open was just :tape:

I think his only good wins this year were against Djokovic in Miami, Calleri at Amersfoort and to a lesser extent his 3 wins in montecarlo (which left much to be desired anyway :o )

Maybe he should stick to the futures for a while :p

pathetic (http://www.dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?key=58041&dict=CALD)

I'm very sad for him. De la Peña's motivation isn't enough to "cure" Coria.
He must realize he needs to be helped physcologically. I'm aware he doesn't want that kind of help.

Coria's problems have nothing to do with his game. His problem is mental and is much more serious than most people think.

i doubt coria throws matches but why throw a match point away for a US Open Semi final. he'd make more in prize money probably and why struggle and put effort in this reach match point to throw it away. why not lose 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 or something.

I'm not even a Guille fan, but I think his slump is kinda sad. I just wish he were back in the mix, making things interesting again.
