Whoa Star!! Lucky you :)

First time I saw him on tv...at all...was a highlight from the simifinal match vs. Verkerk :o Then the first time I saw him "play" a match was vs....oo damn...Feliciano (sp?) Lopez, 1st round, TMS Toronto. He retired from that match :fiery: But he was tired after winning all those titles ;) THEN! the first match I actually got to see him play was vs. Agassi at the USO quarters '03 :eek: :lol:

The first time I saw him on TV was Montecarlo 2003. (I think he played Nadal then and went on to play with Ferrero in final which Guille lost). It was love at first sight! Ha! ha! I'm going to see him in person next week at AO!!! Yeah!!!

Yea I went to the match Coria vs. Roddick in the 2003 TMC Houston it was a great match it had me on the edge of my seat but it was really sad because Guille lost. and I really thought he would win he was so close!

I don't remember :o it was a match in 2003, but don't know when :shrug: I'm sure it was before RG, because I was a fan of him already that tournament. But don't remember the first match.
Though the first time I saw him in person was in Rosmalen (saw two single matches of him on one day!!!!) and hopefully the second time will be in Rotterdam this year

First time i saw Guille on TV was at the French Open 2003 against Agassi.
The first thing i noticed in Guille was that he was the fastest player i ever watched !!! :worship: And since my prevoius idols retired (Stefan Edberg and Pete Sampras) Guille become my next favourite player. And I even like him more than my previous idols.

I´m so sorry that perhaps i won´t have the chance to watch him at AO 2005 because I´m currently studying in Finland and i have no TV here. Very few people at the dormitory has TVs and no one is a tennis fan. Icdon´t see any tennis fans :confused:

I´ll do my best at least to watch semis and the final.

That's gotta be Roland Garros 2003, in the match against Martin Verkerk in the semifinals. He had that really bad haircut :p And he accidentally threw his racket to that ballgirl :lol: When he took his shirt of was the best part! :lol::drool: Then 1 year later I saw him again and since then I became a BIIIG fan of his :D:D :worship::yeah:

First set Andre won,I thought Andre will won the whole match,but Guillermo play an amazing points,including lots of drop shots and slices, :clap2: make Andre just ran and ran. :awww:
I like him cos he's not like that those big servers,play lots of BORING ace, :yawn: also he's not tall and not has a strong body but he plays beautiful tennis. :worship: Also beating Safin in hopman is quite impressed me! :rocker2:

Maybe you guys could help me with this.....

I remember the first time that I saw Coria was the match where he threw his racket and it almost hit a ball kid. He proceeded to place his hands on top of his head in agony, then he ripped off his shirt and gave it to the ballkid. For me, there was no going back after that match. Does anyone know when or where that match was? I think that it was in 2003....

Basically everybody has seen him for the first time at 2003 RG, vs Verkerk or Agassi match; I SUPPOSE that's the only time Guilles' matches were shown on t.v. Or, since he was doing so well in a grandslam tournament, they had no CHOICE but to show him. Y-you guys know what I'm trying to get to.

Anyway, I'll join the rest of the "2003 RG vs. Verkerk" group as for first-time seeing him. Spectacular performance from one so small!

I never saw him in person, just on TV. I think the first time was in Hamburg, but to be honest, it wasn't "love at first sight".
Then I saw his game against Agassi in Roland-Garros in 2003 and since this match I've been rooting for him. It was such an incredible performance. The semifinal against Verkerk made me completely mad, Coria-Ferrero would have been such a great final and the episode with the ball boy was so stupid... :rolleyes:
That's what I love with Coria, his losses in Roland-Garros in the past two years were kind of "tragical" and emotionally very strong. For me it makes him much more interesting than a player who wins his first Grand Slam at the first attempt. He wants this tournament so badly, it's fascinating.

for me, it was exactly the same as solenne. I remember, the weather was very warm, and, as every years, my mum was watching RG. I wanted to watched it coz I like agassi (I think atp will loose something when he'll retire), but at the moment, I wasn't fan of tennis, but when I saw guille's eyes..... OMG ! he was so... cute ! I never stop thinking that he looks like an Aztec and I want to see him wearing as much clothes as them (it means... only 'short underpants', yep, I watched a film about robinson crusoe and I found that the actor who was vendredi -friday- looked like guille...)
in the evening I watched an interview of coria, he talked about his match against agassi...... and I never stopped thinking he was exactly the "kind of guy" with who I would like to go out...

I don´t really remember when it was the first time I watched him on TV, cos we have very poor tennis coverage over here. Maybe some Hamburg 2003 match?

I think the first match I have seen him play live was in Monte Carlo 2004 when he played against Thomas Enqvist. But at that time I was only watching the match because of Thomas ;)

But in the last year I have seen a lot of Guille matches and I am sure it will become more in the future ;)

I've seen him for the first time in 2001 (I'm too lazy to check lol) it was against Guga, 1st round in Roland Garros. I played truant from school to watch FO on Eurosport and that was it... I didn't like Guga then so I supported the young with the blonde hair (yeaaah) and thought he's a great talent. In fact, he is... Then he was suspended what was a shock for me but I saw him on TV again in Monte Carlo 2003 and couldn't help loving his game. I met him in person in Sopot 2003 where he won the tournament (actually I caught him in from of canteen and have a photo with him and his Manhattan ice cream lol)
