Re: Did you remember him? Guillermo Coria?

I cried for two days about it. Coria was the player that brought me into tennis, and it felt like he was cruelly ripped away from the sport just as I was familiarising myself with the game and acquiring a better understanding of it. A great shame.

He will forever be my favourite, though.

It was the cruelest twist of fate I have ever seen in sports.

The worst thing is, I remember how at the time, when they saw Coria's despair, commentators would all say "oh don't worry, he'll win Roland Garros for sure! No way he won't win this Slam!" and... well we all know what happened next...

I still like to watch a little Coria/Nadal from time to time, that was really awesome clay-court tennis. My biggest regret about Coria will always be that RG final, obviously, but my second biggest regret will be the missed opportunity of having years of Nadal vs Coria epic matches on clay.
I believe Nadal would have had the upper hand, but still, that would have been awesome, and that would have made RG so much more interesting. For so many years, it was pretty much NID that Nadal would crush everyone...

Well, anyway, what's done is done, there's no point in dwelling on the past too much.

Started after a drop shot late in the 3rd set when he pulled up with cramps.

Then comes injuries.. then comes two finals against Nadal, which he lost, but I think he deserve to win at least one of those two finals. And after that we all knew what happened to him. That was so unfair for that great person and tennis player.

Of course. He was the king of clay before Nadal.
