Who will win the Umag crown?

Can Moya turn it around and win the 5th Slam according to him or will Coria get his title run under way for 2005.

I want Carlos to show Coria why he is Mr Umag, but Coria will be too tough.

Coria in 3 sets, just because it seems like he's been enjoying these as of late. He did weak up for a nice straight-set win with a bagel for a spaniard ex-RG champ, so.. who knows? :devil:

I'm happy to see these two in the final, perfect final for me (unless Guga or Robredo played against Coria, but that wasn't possible so..) and more so seeing Moya doing well again, but Coria should win a title on clay this year, he's been amazing (RG aside ¬¬).

I hope Carlos wins, he's already an Umag legend, so it would be nice if he won another.

Damn, no Volandri or Novak in the final = I don't care. But I see no reason why Coria shouldn't continue with his masterful ownage of Moya. When's the last time he lost a set to his bitch?

That would be great and very good odds as well.

Moya in three sets I really hope, like George said, just to show Coria that he's MR Umag. It's HIS tournament here, he can't loose.
I hope just that Coria is not in a very very good shape.

Buena Suerte Carlos, you can do it !!!

It's seems Mr Umag has taken the lead in the poll. I have to say I am surprised, even though I know there is not a lot of weasel love around here.

As if beating Moya the last 3 times on clay wasn't enough - not dropping a set in the process.

Coria will want to avenge his lone 2 final losses of '05 to Nadal and grab a trophy while he can.

6-4 6-3

Moyá's draw was rediculously easy aside from Ferrer. Even then, he ate a bagel and handed out numerous BPs in the 3rd set.

Coria had to beat three accomplished clay courters and a hometown qualifier.

This could get real, real ugly like a WTA tour final.

When Coria played JC earlier this week, I said that my heart wanted JC but my head said Coria - unfortunately my head was proved right :sad: I think The Weasel will be too strong for Carlos - but you can't imagine how much I want to be proved wrong this time. Vamos Carlos :)

Moya hasn't played seriously in a few months, apart from showing up at Roland Garros and Rome to try and salvage last year's points. I think, and I wasn't expecting Carlos to win so many matches here, that he's done extremely well. I know he's my favorite player, but I still respect that he's done so well after coming back from a long injury layoff, so I would ask that you would do that too, since you're obviously not on the tour, trying to win matches after a long break and would have no idea about the difficulty of that feat. thanks.

Maybe it's just me but I find it curious that nobody thought to start a thread about Coria winning his first title of 2005. Is winning titles taking a backseat to routine second round demolitions in GM now? :confused:

Congrats to Coria :banana:

Coria Earns First Title of 2005

Second seeded Guillermo Coria won his ninth career title after defeating former World No. 1 Carlos Moya 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 at the Croatia Open in Umag on Sunday. With the win, Coria claimed his first title in more than 15 months. His last title came in 2004 in Monte Carlo (d. Schuettler).

Coria improves his record to 41-14 (27-5 on clay) this season. The 23-year-old Argentine reached the finals of two ATP Masters Series events this year (Monte Carlos, Rome) and advanced to the fourth round of all three Grand Slams.

Moya, the No. 6 seed, has dominated in Umag, compiling an impressive 35-6 record going into the final. The four-time champion recorded only his second loss here since 2001 when he fell to Coria in Sunday’s championship match. Moya claimed titles here in 1996, 2001, 2002 and 2003.

A winner of 18 career titles, including the Roland Garros championship in 1998, Moya started the year strongly by defending his title in Chennai (d. Srichaphan) and went on to reach the quarterfinals of Indian Wells (l. to Roddick) and Buenos Aires (l. to Puerta). He also reached the semifinals in Estoril (l. to Robredo). The Spaniard now holds a 23-13 record in 2005.

Coria and Moya have now met eight times (seven on clay) during their careers. Moya won the first two times they played, while Coria won the last five (including today). Prior to the final, the last time both players met was in the 2004 Roland Garros quarterfinals, with Coria winning in three straight sets.

Coria improved his record in ATP finals to 9-10 and earned 35 INDESIT ATP 2005 Race Points. Moya’s ATP finals’ record fell below .500 (18-19).

In the doubles final, No. 1 seeds Jiri Novak and Petr Pala defeated Michal Mertinak and David Skoch 6-3, 6-3. Novak has won 17 career doubles titles, while Pala has claimed four doubles titles. This is their first championship together.
