Thanks, psicho! It would be easy if it were just an "empty tank" problem or something like that.
Some comments are interesting, though. I always think he must be so desperate to win (maybe not in Acapulco, but in Buenos Aires), but if he sometimes looks like he doesn't really want to play, a break might help indeed.

I've also seen a lot of stuff about Gaudio who complains that he feels worn-out, but he needs to continue in order to maintain his ranking, otherwise he will drop in the rankings so quickly, etc. It's pretty different from Guille, of course, he doesn't have that damn problem with his serve, but it's scary to see that so many players feel worn-out or seem to have lost their "fire" so early in the season.
Lleyton was also way too quiet in the final yesterday! I want my bad boys back!

I just had a look at the ForoCoria board, it's a little bit difficult to understand because it's all in Spanish, but they are talking about an article in Perfil about Guille's brother Federico who says Guille should stop playing one year, if I got it right. I'm all for a break, but one year?
(And somebody says Guille was at a River match and he had "rastas"! I hope it's not true, otherwise, take all your time, Guille – I'm not too fond of seeing him like that. )

Quote:
"No puede perdre con el número 200"
Oscar y Graciela tuvieron tres hijos varones. Entre Guillermo (24) y Federico (13), Roman (22). Mamá eligió la escuela y acertó, y papá el deporte y falló. El quería que los chicos fueran futbolistas pero el viento sopló cambiado. Hace años, el mayor asombró al mundo a base de coraje, inteligencia y una muñeca prodigiosa. Hoy lo asombra con un bajón tenístico que parece no tener límites. Su hermano menor hace análisis: "Yo creo que debería dejar de jugar este año. Tendría que entrenarse y volver el año que viene. No puede perder contra uno que está 200 en el mundo. No lo veo bien este año". Federico, que en el juego es un calco del Mago, dice que últimamente la cosa se dio vuelta. "Es cierto que yo lo imto un poco, pero en el saque Guille se copió de mí: yo nunca supe sacar, soy un desastre. Ahora mi papá dice que no tiene idea. Yo creo que volvió muy rápido despues de la operación". ¿Y Román? "No hace nada, sólo chicas. Una vez fue a Australia con mi hermano y llegaba tarde a los partidos".
(For some reason, the board doesn't let me link the thread, it's on www. forocoria . com, just take out the spaces – more stuff about the brother in the thread "Yo soy medio vago" for all the Federico fans!)

He had what eh? "Rastas"? You mean dreadlocks??? WOW! I would LOVE to see that! That would be priceless!!!

Wow there sure is alot of stuff on that forum. Heh! Never seen it before. Thanks Fran! As for that quote from Fede, yeah great idea! Then you get to have him for all that time BUT WHAT ABOUT US? In my opinion, Fede is being inconsiderate Ok I'm just kidding Uhm, that's not a good idea. I can understand a break, but a year would be detrimental @.@ Fede must be REALLY tired of Roman

I don't think he would need a year but there is no time limit on how long it takes to "find your drive" and your love of the game. I mean, he has to re-orient his brain to be playing for the LOVE of competition and love of the art. NOT playing to 'keep up' with ranking points & expectations & pressure, which is no fun. Its easy to start treating your tennis like 'business' but it FUNCTIONS as an art, and needs to be treated that way for the best results.

It DOES tell us that the family perception is that he REALLY needs to clear himself, because this is coming from the very youngest member of the family, who must have his perceptions 'fed' (sic) by the parents & older brother. And apparently Papa Oscar says he has no idea what to do about the serve, I assume, technically.

Guille has a new coach: Jose Higueras!
That's fantastic news! (Higueras was one of my faves when I was a teenager, I had posters of him in my bedroom, I found his green eyes SO hot! )

In the article, he says they'll give a try and if they see that it doesn't work, it's better to leave it at that.
But obviously, Guille isn't going to take a break, they'll meet in IW next week!

http://www.clarin.com/diario/2006/03...m-01154950.htm
JOSE HIGUERAS
"No hay que pensar en el ranking", pide el nuevo entrenador de Coria


El español fue terminante ante Clarín.com: "Guillermo tiene mucho talento y puede llegar lejos”. Se encontrarán en los próximos días en Indian Wells para programar la temporada. El argentino está pasando un momento tenístico muy complicado y busca recuperar la confianza.

Por Mariano Cordoni, de la redacción de Clarín.com.

Guillermo Coria está atravesando uno de los momentos más duros de su carrera. Sin embargo, el tenista nacido en Venado Tuerto ya tomó cartas en el asunto y contrató como entrenador al prestigioso español José Higueras.

“El Mago” viajará en las próximas horas a Estados Unidos para reunirse con su flamante coach, quien registra brillantes antecedentes. Higueras llegó a estar sexto en el ranking de la ATP en su época de tenista y entrenó a grandes de este deporte como Pete Sampras, Jim Courier y Michael Chang, entre otros.

A la espera de la reunión con Coria, el coach español dialogó telefónicamente con Clarín.com y dio su opinión de cara al gran desafío que significa devolver a “Willy” a los primeros planos.

“Guillermo es un muy buen tenista. Lo conozco poco como persona pero es un jugador que se mueve bien en la cancha y tiene mucho talento”, sostuvo Higueras. “Lo primero será conocerlo y ver cuáles son sus inquietudes y si se adapta a la filosofía de mi trabajo. Lo importante será que compartamos el pensamiento. Si hay discrepancias importantes, directamente será mejor no empezar”, agregó.

En relación al mal momento anímico que atraviesa Coria, reflexionó: “Hay una serie de factores que determinan el estado de ánimo de un tenista. Muchas veces uno pasa de disfrutar el juego a perder la alegría. Lo importante es sentirse bien jugando y tener ganas de aprender”.

“Coria está en una buena edad para jugar. Es muy joven y la clave será encontrar una mejora en su juego”, sostuvo. “Hay que trabajar. Los grandes resultados vienen como consecuencia de los buenos hábitos de entrenamiento. La meta del ranking es un poco ilusoria. Lo que te lleva a ganar puestos en enfocarse en el juego”, dijo.

Higueras se mostró confiado en poder revertir la situación actual: “No me preocuparé por el ranking sino porque mejore en su juego. Los realmente campeones son aquellos que van evolucionando constantemente”.

Sin dudas, un punto importante en la carrera de Coria fue la final de Roland Garros 2004, cuando cayó derrotado ante Gastón Gaudio en un choque inolvidable. “Ese partido fue una sorpresa. Guillermo lo tenía bien encaminado pero se le escapó”, opina el español. “Son cosas que pasan. Los campeones verdaderos siempre atraviesan dificultades. (Ivan) Lendl perdió seis finales de US Open antes de poder ganarlo”, manifestó.

Finalmente, Higueras no pudo dejar de reconocer el gran presente de nuestro tenis. “Si yo fuera argentino, estaría muy contento de tener tenistas como Coria, Nalbandian o Gaudio. Son tremendos jugadores”, concluyó.

I hope Guille doesn't need a full year, but if he does I hope he takes it. I was glad to learn of the new coach. It will be like a fresh start for Guille so I hope we will be seeing him playing again soon I think it is good that he is going to Matches. If he was totally burnt out on Tennis I don't think
he would even be going to Matches. So whenever you are ready to come back to the Tour Guille all your fans will be waiting for your return

Thanks for correcting me for the "rastas", GG! It's the word they used in Spanish. I'm not sure I want to know what they mean exactly with that...

As for Federico's statement, I agree with daze, I think the fact that his own brother says that is pretty interesting. It also means the idea was at least "in the air". He probably has considered it. That's a good thing to know. But a whole season off the tour would be terrible!
I was wondering if they can ask for a protected ranking when they don't play during 6 months or if it is only for injured players.
But now, with the Higureras news, it looks like he isn't going to take a break immediately anyway!

yes, this was a really good choice. and though we dont yet know whether they will even begin...higueres is saying, its best not to start if they see they dont agree on the general philosophy of how he works as a coach...he has a good perspective, i think, about what makes a winner and how to not focus on distractions like rankings. they are only reflections of PLAYING, after all...you dont even focus on results, you focus on shots. for mental associations sake, i certainly wish his name was NOT jose, but anyway...i'm very glad to hear this. i hope when they meet, they like each other.

Jose Higueras is someone who demands hard work and is a real perfectionist. He also doesn't travel much with his clients. He's got a home here in the Palm Desert area... Guille should be here working with him -- and calling me, dammit! I don't know how they will match up. I really have a lot of respect for Higueras, but he's known as a clay court specialist and coached Courier to his two titles at Roland Garros.

Why "but"? I think that's exactly the point when you hire Higueras as a coach. How do you mean that?
I don't think the hard worker thing is a problem (I remember Sampras was shocked indeed when he began to work with Higueras!), rather the fact that Higueras doesn't travel a lot because that was constantly mentioned in the articles in the Argentine press (they've been talking about the mysterious "North American" coach for quite a while now and the articles always said Guille wants somebody who is ready to spend some time in Argentina too – Higueras won't do that). I guess/hope Guille compromised on that point. It will be pretty disappointing if they see it doesn't match after the meeting in IW. Not that I expect Higueras to do miracles and solve all the problems in one month, but he's pretty much the kind of coach I was hoping for Guille.

"but" because Guille doesn't really need any help on how to play on clay.

Higueras in my mind is more of a guru than a coach. He doesn't travel. He has a regimen, and a philosophy, but he's not a day to day coach. Also, he is a little "old school" He hasn't coached anyone (at least publically) for a while now.

Anyway, this is a difficult time for Guille, and I hope he finds his way.

but thats interesting...because perlas said guille didnt let him into the process enough...maybe this is what coria really wants/needs...to have someone who can be a support but not RELY on their presence at matches etc., the same way federer does it. he may not SAY thats what he wants, but i am not always sure he is that clear on the difference between the ideal in his head and what his own intincts really are.
