I see it more like their match in Paris a couple of years ago, Coria makes more errors now, but he serves better and heīs more agressive ocasionally. Also the faster surface here will help a bit Agassi. Hopefully, Coria in 3

Coria should win, but you're right the faster surface helps Agassi and as long as Coria can use his backhand down the line effectively and do what I said earlier, then he'll be fine. It's the 1st guy Agassi has played that clay is their favourite surface.

That bh dtl which he used to hit very well in the past (he killed Agassi with it in Paris) is a shot I have the feeling heīs not confident enough to hit yet, I donīt know the reason.

That bh dtl which he used to hit very well in the past (he killed Agassi with it in Paris) is a shot I have the feeling heīs not confident enough to hit yet, I donīt know the reason.

He has got a bit bigger and maybe he is still getting used to his frame, but it's about confidence and hoping for him to peak at the right moment. If you are not confident then basic things become more difficult than they should.

He has an effective drop shot and the dtl backhand are two good weapons to move Agassi around, just get him out of his strike zone and you see how bad Agassi can be on clay.

Yes, Coriaīs game plan will be move Agassi around and make him hit the ball when moving, thatīs clear.

This is thing a lot of people don't understand (Sjeng, TBE, yourself, joe and a few others) , it's not that difficult to talk about someone's game while disliking them.

He has the superior craft on the surface and he has won the only clay match they have played, so that has to help him.

Ok i wont ;) i will talk about his pathetic behaviour with the ball kids. It has to be the most annoying habit on the atp tour, and the way he stood there for 20 seconds waving his arms in the air the other day instead of picking the ball up himself was disgraceful. He is not the king of the court, and the way he acts with the ballkids he thinks he is.

I have to say this though froggy Ferrer has improved big time and I have seen quite a lot of his matches this year. He is hitting a very good forehand and it has more stick on it and when he gets a short ball he has a go and moves forward, though his backhand can break down a bit, but he has got stronger.

Yes, he had a bit of fortune with Zabaleta and Malisse, but he took advantage of this and the fact that he is fit and will run a lot of balls down and the extra aggression has helped him, especially since he is coming to the net quite a lot.

Maybe a match between Nadal and Muster should be arranged, GWH, to finally show you who's better on clay :p

There wouldn't be enough grunting and topspin in that match, maybe they could use Muster as a practice partner.

Nadal at the moment shouldn't serve too many doubles and he has a good kick on it, but he has improved in all areas of the game.

Blah. I have to go back to sleep to rest my throat for work (tonsilitis, booo!). Hopefully Rafa pulls out the third but I don't expect Ferrer to just go away. He's looked good today aside from those few games he's thrown away. If Rafa wins he ought to send him a Christmas card for those ;)

Nadal at the moment shouldn't serve too many doubles and he has a good kick on it, but he has improved in all areas of the game.

Today he served badly in 1 set and got outplayed by Ferrer. Ferrer couldnīt keep that level too much and some easy errors from him and good 1st serves by Rafa brought him to 3-2 in the 2nd. Then Nadal made a good service game and gained that confidence he hadnīt bc he was missing too many shots till then.

Still a battle out there, letīs see

In theory Nadal should win, but it doesn't always work like that, though I do see him coming through in this match.
