Can Coria Ever Make It Back To Any Decent Level?

Do you think Coria can ever make it back to top 50 or top 100 even, the way he seems to be playing now, or has he been permanently screwed by injuries?
I'd like him to get back to some decent level at least like the top 50. Even if the guy used to act like a jerk at times it'd be sad to see his career end so humiliatingly.
He can barely win a match at challenger level recently although he took a set off Robredo at the French Open the other day so maybe that is a sign he is getting better.
I don't think hes playing enough to get back to form really though. Hes only played a handful of tournaments this year so far. If he's motivated and gonna get back to form he should be playing in challengers every week now, or just retire.

Yes, he can make it back to a decent level. Right now, it's his confidence that's holding him back mostly. I think he will have an Agassi revival at some point, only on a lesser/different scale.

In his match against Robredo he's shown that he still got some of this fire, there's a slight chance

Maybe but its gonna be a long road though...

I think he's got a shot but only if he slugs it out on the clay courts in the challengers for the rest of the year, and avoids injury, serving crisis, etc. If he manages to do that, and that's a big ask, he should be able to make an impact on the south american clay court swing after the AO next year.

Yes he can easily make it back. It's his attitude that's holding him back.

the question is what you mean by "decent"

I think he can make top100, probably top50 as well

Top25 I'm a bit sceptical

Yes he can return to the Top 500 if he is lucky.

Does anyone want Coria back to a decent level? I know I certainly don't.

He's like ranked in the 600's now isn't he anyway?

I surely hope so, but he needs to improve those double faults and easy UE's. Then he will make it.

Coria who?

I believe he'll be back to top 100 at least. He was very impressive against Robredo but he seriously needs to do something with the serve.
