Oh wow.... not that I wasn't expecting it soon. :sad:

It's just shit how his career had to end in this way, yesterday during the rain delay here in the UK, they were showing the 2005 Rome Final, it made me so sad. He deserves to finish his career in a much better way, not like this.

Re: Official retirement from Coria
 
i knew when he said it was 'too humid out' in his last match that he didnt really feel like playing. he was not able to find a valid reason to want to come back, other than that people thought he 'should'; his competitive spirit was not there.

but can anyone translate some of what he is saying in that long radio interview???

Traslation of www.ole.com.ar

" No, it was not that one defeat in Roland Garros which made leave tenis" me;. The phrase of Guillermo Coria is conjugated in past. Definitive. The Magician announced that no longer he will return to play. That one defeat against Gastón Gaudio in 2004, after to have had the possibility of match point, without a doubt marked its race. Although this behind schedule, in dialogue with Competition (Continental radio), it assured that one was not breaks. " In fact, a year after that end in Paris and of an operation in the shoulder, I returned to be between the 10 first" , it explained. Perhaps to this height, little it matters if that one defeat were definitive. Or if their insecurities were tie to their serve, that aspect of the game that as much cost to him to correct. " It had not made the decision before because I thought that my problem was in the serve. But after it to have solved in a month and a half, I went to Thailand and when I left the party I gave account of which the problem did not pass ' that way;. The certain thing is that Coria hung the hairband, kept the racket. It does not go more. " When one does not feel that passion, he is better to take a step to the flank. I realized of which it was costing to me to compete and to travel, so now fodder in new projects and enjoying the company of the friendly and family". Ex- number three of the world assured that he is " very happy and very calm". And at the time of the balance, was whole number, without fissures. " I feel that I did more than could have obtained it thought if it. He is something that happened to me and I touch life".

Sorry by the errors in the traduction.....

no, this is good!! thanks!

he thought maybe it was the double faults keeping him back, but after the match where serving was not the issue, he saw it was the lack of passion that was the real problem. when one does not feel that passion it is better to step to the side. he realized what it was costing him to compete and travel....but in the end, he did accomplish more than he could have believed; a thing that happened to him for which he feels blessed.

i can live with that. :yeah:

and i should say he gave at least one of us a reason to care about this sport again, if only for a window of time. there was real magic there, and he let me find renewed meaning in tennis, amid the landscape of total bores who now play the game with their corporate personalities & bland averageness. and i am extremely thankful to him for that, for which I feel blessed too! :)

Thanks for that, David.

I also found this little summary in English (which someone translated from that site, I think):

http://www.google.com/hostednews/can...zQoXobEHluXg8A

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Guillermo Coria retired from tennis at age 27 on Tuesday.

Coria, a finalist for Roland Garros in 2004 and formerly ranked third in the world, said he had been considering stepping down from the sport for months.

"I didn't feel like competing anymore," Coria said in statements published on the Argentine Tennis Association's Web site. "I've made the decision I will not play again."

Coria won nine titles during his career, reaching his peak in 2004, when he lost in the final of the Roland Garros to Gaston Gaudio, catapulting him to third in the world rankings.

Coria's decline began a year later after he won the Umag tournament - his last title.

"In 2005 I began to feel less and less like competing," he said. "My passion just wasn't the same and it's impossible to do things well when it's like that. In this sport, you have to be at 100 per cent," added Coria, who is currently ranked 672.

Israeli Harold Levy beat Coria in the Argentine's last match in March, 6-3, 6-2 in a challenger tournament in Bangkok.

"I'm very happy with the decision I've taken, since I have new projects and I will be able to spend more time with my family," Coria said.




It is nice to see him finally admit "This isn't working", no matter how much we all wanted it to work out again. I wish him all the best for the future, was a pleasure to see him play and witness his career. :yeah:

Traslation: http://www.clarin.com/diario/2009/04...m-01908328.htm

Yesterday, Guillermo Coria surprised in the evening in Continental Radio when he announced his retirement of professional tennis. And he adduced that the reason is " very strong" but was going that it to reveal when its biography writes. " It is a point where I do click in my race, I am going but it to count when it removes a book at some future date. He is very strong, I believe that she knows it to nobody, and it says when it many will understand because of the bassoon. He is something difficult that it touched life" to me; , it said. And today, in the press conference, it did not leave any indication. " It went to a match and it did not motivate to me to gain it, the blows were wearing away to me and I was losing the motivation. I am not crazy, I am healthy. But when one does not have a goal becomes very difficult. It entered the field and it did not have that badness to want to overcome the rival and I happened to be good inside of the field. In order to obtain to things having that to have that instinct to want to overcome to the opponent and I could not compete with the other " , the Magician counted. Coria was very moved and told that although had taken it to the decision a time ago - and nobody had spoken to it with its family knew it was going that it to announce yesterday. " I tried it until the end but I could not. It did not have it thought but I am not sorry. I am moved because now volume brings back to consciousness. But now a new stage of my life begins and I hope that he is as well as possible " , it added. The santafesino glides to retire with a tour on dust of brick or in the next Telmex Cup.

Again, sorry for the errors in the traduction....
