isnt he a champion???

Q. Will you be pulling out of the Queen's Club event in London, or do you still intend to go? >

GUILLERMO CORIA: Yes, I will be in Queen's. I will have a special invitation. Even if I had won this tournament, I would have gone, because when I commit myself, I respect my commitments. I don't know how I will feel mentally, but I will do everything to win the tournament and I will try to forget what happened today.

He'd better forget about it. It extremely heartbreak.

Cool, Heron;) Italy is beautiful country, :D :D I like that coutry, Rome is one of the places I most want to travel.
I heard that too, but I don't know whether is his grandparents, I heard Guille is a descendant of Italy(:confused: ). His full name is Guillermo Sebastien Coria. It said that Sabastien is a Italian name.(:confused: )
I just heard of that, I'm not sure. :shrug:

Here is the draw, you can have a look at it:)

here's what he said on his site....



Guille wrote: "I watched the match again and I felt pleased"

"It is in this moments when you realize who loves you for real and who doesn't", Guille said in his e-mail.

"Hello everybody!!!"

"I hope you excuse me for not having written before, but the truth is that I'm still sad because I missed the title at Roland Garros... Anyway, you deserve that I write to you, above all because of all the e-mails I got...Honestly, I really appreciate it!".

"As regards what happened on Sunday, it was something new to me. It's never happened to me before... I kept thinking that winning at Roland Garros was right there and that really backfired".

"I watched the match again and I felt pleased because I played the best tennis I could. I couldn't believe what I was able to achieve during the fifth set beacuse I was totally torn due to the muscular spams and I endured it. Undoubtfully, it will be very useful for my future. I'll work on it so it would never happen to me again".

"The weariness was so important that my body still hurts. I played for a while today and I was very hard for me, so I hope I can adapt quickly to Queen's grass and win in my debut. I will be hard, but I will fight back".

"I repeat, I'm sad but I'm calmed because I did everything I could to win. I was just a point away and I took the risk, but I missed...I felt it slipping away!!!! Anyway, I know that next time I won't give way...".

"I've had a lot of time to think and I feel that it happened for a reason. The tournament wasn't meant for me, but I will keep training hard as usual to come back next year and let all my anger out".

"I wish I could let it all out sooner honestly, because there still are many important tournaments left. I will continue with the same strenght I always had, but I want to win Roland Garros more than ever!!!".

"Some people were asking about my confidence...I'm fine today, I didn't forget how to play tennis or anythiong of the sort: Be relaxed, I trust in me as always".

"All the people that surround me have a lot to do with that. It is in those moments when you realize who loves you for real....Losing the final was also good to "separate the wheat from the chaff"".

"As regards whether I will or won't incorporate a psychologist in my work team, it will very hard to analyze since it has never been released. I haven't thought much about it. Currently, I'm trying to start working with somebody that is not a trainer, some kind of a partner...I can't tell you the name yet, I wll only tell you that rumors are not wrong".

"Once again, I want to thank everybody because of all the e-mail you sent me....my friends from Venado Tuerto and Rosario, the parents of some of them, you, everyone...".

"I know that I will surprise you with a huge joy. Anyhow, life gives and takes...This time I had to lose, but I will never forget what I have achieved so far. And I won't submit because that's the way tennis is".

"Well, send you a big hug...".

Guille

well, we've got to accept he has gotta work alot on playing on grass.

but thats one of the things i admire most about him actually, his willing to try everything even if he's bad at it. he just has so much persistance and ambition...not content to just sit on his "king of clay" laurels

ya volverán las victorias, mago!

oops.. dunno what happened there juz now.. nways here's something frm the Ordina Open:

http://www.ordina-open.nl/index.asp?lang=en
Safin cancelled, Coria present
Saturday 12 June 2004

Marat Safin can't play at the Ordina Open. The Russian player still suffers from a hand injury which he derived from Roland Garros.

The organisation is glad to present Guillermo Coria as his replacer. The finalist of Roland Garros is no grasscourt specialist, but a world class player non the less.

Other world class players at the Ordina Open this year are Rainer Schuettler, Tommy Robredo and off course title defender Sjeng Schalken.

nineteen
06-14-2004, 02:05 AM
i reckon he's better at hard court than at grass.. coz he reached the quarter finals in last year's US Open.. juz that Agassi stood in his way..

I wonder if Guille is following Euro 2004 .. hehe.. last night, at Stella Artois, Roddick predicted England 1 France 0!

xOxTanyaxOx
06-14-2004, 02:09 AM

06-17-2004, 01:25 PM
Maybe one hours later. He is on the third match of the centre court.
Now on the centre court, Pierce are playing against Kremer.6-4, If Pierce take the match in second set. Then it'll begin Guill's match.
So I think the match will begin about one hours later.
Here is live scores:http://www.ordina-open.nl/nl/score/scorebord2004.asp
If you can see that match, that's great.:)

And of course, Mary Pierce would take up ALL the time. She is such a slow player! And now they've gone for the bathroom break. :rolleyes:

I'm going to have to leave before Guille gets on the court. :bigcry:

Thanks for the info. I don't know if it is my computer or their site or a combination of the two but nothing happens when I go to the Ordina site and there's all this stuff 2003 and 2002 in Dutch and it's crazy! I wish the Tennis Channel here would televise these matches . . .

And about Guille's draw at Wimbledon, he'll do fine. Might not make it past the second (or better third round) but his game on grass will be better and he'll be happier going into the summer. Where is he off to after Wimbledon?

Guille's Girl
06-17-2004, 02:19 PM
:eek: the Wimby draw is like uhm.....scary? That's all I could find. But I know Guille ain't scared pfft.

Yeah he's VERY good on hardcourt. Remember he was in the finals of Maimi?? Had to default....kidney stones. How could anyone forget :confused: SO I think he will do good at the USO.

Don't know what he's gonna do after Wimby. Maybe go on another killing spree like last year :haha: But um, I hope he plays a few USO Series events. The first one starts July 12.

boliviana
06-17-2004, 03:51 PM
If he hadn't been ill in Miami, he would have won. Roddick said he was sick too (?) but regardless he didn't know what to do with Guille's shots and when Guille is in his "zone", he is unstoppable.

If he can get his nerves under control then it will stop messing with his body so much and then the sky is the limit for him. But that little latin head of his I think blows things up and then he gets psyched out and the stress weakens his immune system. He already puts so pressure on his body anyway as a professional athlete . . . it's a tough life I think.

Im hoping he will do really well at Wimbledon - his draw pretty much should pan out as follows...

1st round : Wesley Moodie
2nd round : Florian Mayer
3rd round : Ivan Ljubicic
4th round : Mardy Fish
Q-F : JC Ferrero
S-F : Roger Federer
F : Andy Roddick

I hope I haven't jinxed him :eek:

MissPovaFan
06-21-2004, 01:14 PM
Coria is playing Moodie today (21st) and is 3rd on court 1. Basically at the moment Hewitt is 2-0 up in sets over Melzer so that could be over by about 3pm. Then theres a ladies singles match so Id say Coria should be on court at about 4:30pm.

xOxTanyaxOx
06-21-2004, 01:17 PM
thanks so much!! so he'll be on center court. hopefully they will show that! right now they are showing court 18 here in singapore. srichapan vs his opponent..i forget his name hehe.

MissPovaFan
06-21-2004, 01:21 PM
Nope Coria is on Court 1 not Centre Court. ah right that must be Srichaphan v Karlovic? I currently have the Elseneer v Parmar match on which is on court 17 - I have the choice of 5 courts :D

Guille's Girl
06-21-2004, 01:29 PM

I think I may have been a little hasty with my rain call - some courts are off for rain but court 1 is still playing with Hewitt 6-2 6-4 4-2 up against Melzer with Melzer serving. So maybe a 4:15pm - 4:30pm start for Coria is looking on again :)
