He must be overworked awfully. Last time he has resigned from play after two games. In challenger in Szczecin he lost with player from Romanien. That, what he is doing, it is terrible. He wastes his talent. Maybe it will be better late, but I doubt it. I have thought at once that he does not practise enough. If person wants to keep on the top, then it must devote outsized. Perhaps, now he is happiest exactly when he rests continuously.

mtw, i am not trying to protect him or something. But i think he is just trying to enjoy the moment....time is precious.....everybody knows that pratice makes perfect But noone is perfect!!!

His talent is still there with him no matter what....I don't know when will he come back i don't know whether or not He will EVER come back
But after all we still have to support him all the way....I have faith in him,although he didnt deserve it sometimes But come on,being the best isn't everything...he still has a nice characters and intesting attitude for us to follow, his pretty Carla, his coaches and trainers....loads of things

Just look on the bright side,I am sure he wants to come back too you know...
He will try his best I believe, just have FAITH in him...Please....

I think, that poor Guillermo has already fallen on sports rock-bottom. Person can only reflect from rock-bottom. It can not be worst. He is very ambitious and wise. I think, that it will be better soon.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend anybody. I know, that Sabau is great player. In Poland we have similar players ( Kubot, Przewoźny, near 200 or more ). This wonderful boys from Poland, Romania and other countries are making their best but they are only quite mediocre sportsmen and they have no chances for sports progress. However Guillermo Coria was very good so far and he was highclass player. So, people think, that something happens with Guillermo ungood, since he plays through from this type of players like Przewoźny or Sabau or this player from US during US Open( I don't remember, who he was exactly ).

Default Wonderful Coria's ex-coach's has a ,,new project" in Chile

He takes part in TV-Show ,,Dancing with stars" in Chile ( www. 24horas.cl from 17. 10 ). Maybe the problem of G. Coria relies on it, that he has no coach, who would deal with him good. He employs only famous coaches, but they want from him definitely money, because they have many sports achievments with other sportsmen and they have no motivation. Maybe G. Coria should employ not enough known coach, who would like work with him honestly.

Didn't he say in one of his letters that that's exactly what he's going to do?

Was a new thread created by mtw merged with the News thread? I didn't understand anything first because I hadn't seen the title of his/her post (are you a guy or a girl, mtw?)

I agree with you about the "famous coaches", now that's not really their fault, they probably never denied they have tons of other commitments and won't travel around the globe with him (I don't know for de la Peña, but Higueras always seemed pretty clear on this).
But napki is right, he seemed aware of that in his last letter.
He really needs to find the right balance between those big names who are great coaches, but not what he needs atm, and my beloved Diego Moyano (who certainly is very motivated to help Guille, but...)

Nice article, jayjay, very informative summary for people who don't follow Coria so closely. I like the general tone, it's well-balanced, not too much "pathos".
Plus you've got some really great expressions, like: "Coria required surgery on his right shoulder which would rule him out for the rest of the season. He was not willing to believe that".

Did he really miss the matchpoints by an inch in the FO final? I have to watch again my DVD of the French Open final.

I just have a question about that part: "Coria decided he could not play at Roland Garros. That his shoulder was still an issue and that he needed a break (another one) to regain his hunger."
In his message to Foro Coria, he mentioned an elbow tendonitis, if I remember rightly. Are you referring here to the "Tenis 2006" video with the talk about the shoulder? I still don't know exactly what he said in that video!

i thought it was closer to two inches... but it was exactly the same shot, if i remember correctly...one down the line off the forehand and then one down the line off te backhand. i remember papa coria saying, "that was the kind of shot guille hits on the line 99 of 100 times in a practice or even in a match, but not on that day."

jayjay, the article is very good, but i am sure you know that. it sums it all up very well. BUT i dont fully agree that the french open is the great weight holding down BattleShip-Coria from sailing. That was a tough one, but I truly believe he did get cramps and it was not all pychological. people get cramps. He got them. He can blame his body for cramping but its rather silly. Look how many at the us open cramped in their matches this year, which is an easier event than roland garros on the body. So its honorable of him to take full responsibility as he does, but I think fate was ugly to his legs that day. And really, he just said he kept thinking about the cramps...but then, how could you not?? I dont consider that part a choke either. I think the truth is that Guillermo Coria's leg cramped.

If he had won RG, but still had the shoulder surgery and needed to come back, the Nadal match would have been the same, IMO. But losing to Nadal was a big one because he was up in that fifth set and should have put away the monkey. there were no cramps this time, just himself. THAT i think hurt his "champion" psyche. And then failing to nail down silly american ginepri in the uso QF was a deal-closer. TWO DOUBLE FAULTS were the final two points of that match. All that work and from deuce, then 2 doubles.....it crushed him. I was there and I will say it: I never felt more like a bucket of cement had been poured onto my body than as I left the stadium. I bruised feeling in and out. I know he had to be feeling that. He has never ever been the same again.

So the FO-04 had a big impact, but it was the COMPETITOR FAILING in TOO MANY CRUCIAL moments that injured his IDENTITY as a CHAMPION that has caused the problem. And there is a part of him that says "If I can not be the BEST, I dont want to be there" which is why he was so good at being the best!! So its hard to blame him for being an extremist. But for all great champions, losing is painful to a greater degree than the average player. Sure, people can say thats all ego, but show me a great player with no ego and i'll show you a player thats not truly great.

"King Coria" will rise. But if everyone did not doubt to the quick that he might ever stand again, the victorious drama that is his birthright would not be nearly as beautiful as it is going to be.
