Rainer could better his first serve percentage. It's under 50%. He did raise it during the course of the match. I think in the first few games it was 35% or something like that.

but only if he doesn't play too many events, right now his chances to win the French Open are very good
everyone is due for a letdown sooner or later

WTF?!?! :banghead: Is Rainer incapable of closing out his service games all of a sudden??
lol, remember that Coria is still on the court :lol:

nothing special if Coria wins two or three points in a row

I have to say that its really a heck of an achievement for Schüttler to reach that final, but against Coria is final destination today.

I expected this to be a lot of closer, but Rainer as a hardcourt player is playing against the most superiour claycourter of the world at the moment.

SaFed2005

sorry Bilbo, the birthday is going to be just about ALMOST perfect for Rainer :)

however, if you asked him 2 weeks ago if he wanted to celebrate his birthday by being in the final of the big 9 - he would probably be pretty content :)

so it's not a bad result at all

Congrat Coria!

At least Rainer put up a little fight in the 3rd set.

don't be sad Schüttler fans, Rainer did pretty well this week :)

Coria is a good guy, I like him too and he was way too good for Rainer today... (and Rainer too bad)

I think we all could have wished a closer match, but it was not meant to be :shrug:

Well played Coria!!!! :yeah:

Rainer!!! You did your best I'm sure!!! Coria was just too good!!! Go run here though!!! at least you should be more confident on clay for the rest of the clay season now!!! :bounce:

I hated this final cos i support both but Rainer more since it's clay!!!

OK, my computer chose to crash on the 5-3 game. Did I miss anything exciting in the (I'm guessing) last game?

I really hope when Rainer looks back on this tournament he remembers his great wins against Guga, Leyton, Henman and Moya and not today`s match. Great tournament Rainer!!!

As for Coria, well I think he deserves his reputation as the best claycourter in the world.
