LIVE

A DREAM FINAL for ..... anyone? :lol: ;)

OK, who can't get excited over an el Mago/A-Rod final? If not, You crazy!

Their head-to-head stats:

2003 Tennis Masters Cup, Hard, Round Robin
winner: Roddick 6-3** 6-7** 6-3** *** ***

2002 Houston, Clay, Semifinal
winner: Roddick 6-3** 2-6** 6-2** **

OK, the fact that Andy actually beat Guille on clay is making me dizzy right now.* ***

http://us.news1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/p/rids/20040403/i/r3197315919.jpg

el Mago has some fightin' words about Roddick: :devil:

Q. Who would you choose to meet in the final?

GUILLERMO CORIA: Either one is going to be a very tough match. It's a completely different matchup with those two guys. But with either one of them, it's going to be very hard.

But I would like to have revenge against Roddick.
--
Q. In a Tennis Masters Series event like this, would you rather play a best two-out-of three final or a best three-out-of-five final, and why?

GUILLERMO CORIA: Especially if I play with Roddick, I prefer to play five sets. It gives you more chances to come back in the match when you play five sets.

Q. If it is Roddick on Sunday, what can you say about the challenge of facing him?

GUILLERMO CORIA: He's going to have to win every point. I'm going to fight very hard every point. Roddick is going to have to earn it.

It was very important to win this match, to come back in this match. I feel pretty good about that. I also am still pretty hot about my loss against Roddick in Houston.

lol tangy I wouldn't get too excited about the clay win... that was like right after Guille was coming back from his drug suspension. Guille would absolutely creme Andy on clay now, I'm sure.

Andy needs to play as sharply as he did today. Guille isn't that great a server so he has to return well and he needs to serve really well himself and mix it up b/c Guille is great from the baseline.

I find this line interesting though "Especially if I play with Roddick, I prefer to play five sets. It gives you more chances to come back in the match when you play five sets." It's like he's assuming he'll be down at some point in the match and will have a chance to come back lol

J. Corwin
04-03-2004, 02:38 AM
Well that's because he will be going in as slight underdog to Andy. And Andy also has the weapons to overpower him. That's how I took it. lol

Kiara

The last match they had was teriffic, he played one of the best tie breaks I've seen him play, I hope the outcome will be different this time ;) but in a best of five I'd give Andy the advantage.

star
04-03-2004, 06:16 PM
Really? Why is that Kiara?

This is uncomfortable for me. I would have been over the moon had either Coria or Roddick made it to the finals here, but now that BOTH have made it, I am just nervous and apprehensive for both of them. It's not a very good feeling. But then, I have to think would I have wanted one of them to lose before the final..... and so..... even with the nerves, I guess I am happy. :)

well of you count out the Davis cup matches, he hasnt won a best of five match since the us open and he's only ever played 1 5 set match in his whole career I think, last year against Zabaleta at Roland Garros, if it goes to a fifth, then I think the player who's had the most experience in a fifth set situation will pull through. Plus Im not sure how well he'd hold up physically if it goes that far, hopefully Im wrong but if if goes to a deciding set, i'd fancy Andy's chances.

TennisLurker
04-03-2004, 09:56 PM
in the fifth set the big server always has the advantage, if it goes to 86 97 11 9 the big server always has the upper hand.

Do they have fifth set tie break like the us open?

Deboogle!.
04-04-2004, 12:12 AM
TL, I dunno!! Everywhere it says it's a best-of-5 but it doesn't say if they use a 5th set TB

But this is a required event final we're talking about - when's the last time one went to 5 sets? ;) My guess is they use a TB, since in the 3-set finals they do... but, I don't know for sure.

Havok
04-04-2004, 03:14 AM
of course there's a 5th set tie-break. only 3 out of 4 GS events play without them, right?

04-04-2004, 08:52 AM
Revenge would be nice right about now, Coria :) Andy is soo terrible on clay, that he wouldent even come close to even getting a chance to play him!! Andy would retire before the match even started, if he had to play Coria on clay :lol: :lol: :haha: :haha:

Coria uses brilliant hands, counterpunching, angles, drop shots, defense and some good approaches along with some off speed serves/changes of pace to OUTWIT the outhitter.

If there is a guy who can play injured is Coria, but against Roddick on hard best of 5 is too much to ask...

His backhand lost spice with the injury...

nevertheless he is teaching A Rod a lesson....

ROddick holds at love again... 3-0*

You get the feeling Roddick taking Miami is inevitable.

Paradoxically, I think Guille's injury helped him win the 1st set.

I'm so disappointed... Guille clearly can't move well and he's still able to make it tight!

Clearly can't move??? I don't think so.

It's unfortunate that he has a back prob but he moved damn well at the end of the 1st set. And he still is moving well.

yeah but I still find he looks slow.. his serve is always on the 90s and he makes more UFES/less winners.. I agree he was great at the end of the first set, but how many love games Roddick had on his serve since then?? Guille didn't any bp since the first set :sad:!

It looked like he was about to. He looked really tired throughout the match, I guess that explains why. He'd been coughing all week, dunno if the two are related.

Do you also get sick of Guille always whining if his opponent gets a call?

I don't like it when anyone whines when their opponent gets a call - if the opponent got the correct call. I have just seen Andy do it more than others. And Coria did get the correct call both times. Andy just lets calls get to him to much...as his tantrum about a month ago will attest. I think that he has matured ALOT in the past couple of years, and as I have said in another thread, I think he is always gracious after a match- win or lose. I like Andy much more than I used to- but I still think that he can get too whiney on court. Hey - no player is infaliable in all regards. ;)

errr, all he did was put his hands on his hips, and he looked at the chair ump. he didn't say a word, get your facts straight people :tape: and Coria whines a heck of a lot, just stop focusing on Andy doing it and you'd see many more players do it as well:rolleyes: and the fixation of people on Andy, its humorous:lol:

Well...it seemed to me that he was muttering quite a bit and what not - perhaps pouting may have been a better word. But I do know that I was irritated at him when it occured- and I was not irritated just because I wanted to be irritated at Andy! But please try not to be so condescending in your post. This was a complaint about one player- not a comparison of him in the general whininess scale of tennis. I just happen to think that Andy complains too much. Also- I am not fixated on Andy. I said that I do think that he complains too much on court- I did not say that he was the only one to do so. (One of my favorites- Nalbandian- can drive me batty as well with the complaints.) So please- just because someone comments on Andy does not mean that they are fixated on him.

Naldo I read my post and my apologies if I sounded bitc**- I just wanted to clarify that I wasn't just badmouthing Andy for the sake of it. I respect him and admire some of his attributes (**whispers***but I do think he complains too much***scurries out of the room***).

lol!!! he did do that weird thing with his hat today when he was thanking the crowd. Andy's inconsistent with his "hat taking off" - I have definitely seen him take off his hat when going to the net to shake the other guys' hand before, but i'm not sure, it might only be when he plays a really close friend (Mardy, James, and the like). Not that this is a good thing since he does obviously respect all of his opponents! lol but yea
