One telling stat in this match was the break point conversion.

Coria had 6/16
Calleri had 7/9

Plus, Agustin took an injury timeout after he won the 1st set for some problems with his back. He hasn't had a big win for sometime and good for him.

I wouldn't write him off at all, it would be silly to do so. He has a very good trainer who has prepared 2 RG champions and they are planning to peak there.

Yes, I am happy about the result, but it's far too early to write him off.

I am an ignorant soul so enlighten me. What excuses has he come up with this year?

I'm sorry . . . is that silence? Because there is no answer? Because there has been no bad behavior, no bs, just a guy trying his best to rebound after a lousy and very disappointing year.

Well, he has to peak for RG, but Calleri is a very good player on clay when in the mood, then again he made the final last week in Monte Carlo, he isn't going to go 35 clay wins all the time.

There should be more Calleri love showed in this thread.

He had the problem with his new coach decided to dump him in Australia, and he hasn't been in form and maybe this result can push him forward as he has to improve his ranking.

Last two yrs it was clear that Guillie was one of the favourites for the RG mid-way through clay season. Now, I'm in doubt - he's clearly still out of his best form yet (understandably so, but still). We'll see if he can regain it for RG - he'll need it.

And why are we talking about Coria in Godo congratulation thread? :)

you'll find fault where you want to, as will I . . . I haven't seen the same Coria this year. I've heard things like "i played like my grandmother today, i deserved to lose, i'm trying to get back to where i was," etc. I don't see him whining like he used to . . . about the courts, it sounded more like an explanation and not an excuse. The tone is different. He's different.

Enjoy the day!!! Awesome spring weather here in NY . . .

Had a lot of injury problems last year as well which put him behind in his preparation. He doesn't have that long left in the game, so I just hope he can have some good performances.

No weasels don't die quickly and it would be foolish to write off Coria in any tournament played on clay as a contender.

We know what everybody here is thinking of Coria, but how was the match itself? Was it a poor performance of Coria? Did he choke in the third set or was it a really good fight from Calleri then? Did anybody watch the match?

I got this from deivid and another source, so thanks. The first set was quite good Calleri was playing very well hitting some very good backhands, and his serve was successful when it went in and Coria wasn't playing badly.

At the start of the 2nd set Calleri called for an injury timeout for a lower back problem, it was less likely to be a trick considering he was leading at the time, then a breakathon went on 8 breaks of serve in the first 9 games, then they decided to hold serve and Coria was steadier.

Coria got an early break in the 3rd, and Calleri broke back when Coria was serving for the match at 5-4, it went to the breaker, where Calleri was relaxed and hitting out forcing Coria into errors in the breaker.

Thanks, GWH. It's good to know Calleri was playing well in the first set and Coria wasn't too pathetic.
Anyway we all knew he would have lost in the next round, so one round more or less is not such a big deal.

THE GREAT "GORDO" :worship:

The Argentine paper La Nación says:

The "duel" between Argentines got interesting in the third set, when the public was rooting for Calleri and some verbal interchanges surprised the central court's public at the elegant Real Tenis Club Barcelona.

"You're really lucky!!!" Calleri shouted after Coria returned an almost impossible ball, and Coria responded shouting "Miss it, miss it!" while the man from Córdoba was about to connect a smash.

http://www.lanacion.com.ar/deportiva/Nota.asp?nota_id=698190

Ya a corazón abierto, el partido entregó lo mejor en el set decisivo, con un público que se enganchó con el duelo de legionarios. Que, además, son grandes amigos. Fue entonces como se pudo escuchar un "¡qué suerte que tenés!" de Calleri por una pelota increíble alcanzada por su rival, o el "erralo, erralo" de Coria cuando el cordobés se aprestaba a ejecutar un smash. Así, fue tejiendo una victoria que concretó en el primero de los cuatro match-points que tuvo en el tie-break final.

That is what Vale was refering to in its original version.
