Default Karol Beck wins first rubber. vamos argentina!

i am horrified to report it, but the only way i can minimize my own embarrassment is by fessing up right here in GM.

the "great" guillermo coria went to his first davis cup match of the semifinal tie and was SCHOOLED in straight sets by happless Karol Beck 7-5 6-4 6-4. Karol Beck has had a LOSING RECORD in EVERY YEAR he has played and has lost in the FIRST ROUND in THREE successive grand slam events.

Losing to a player such as this in a davis cup tie is equal to allowing someone to take you by the mouth and pour maggots down your throat and make you swallow them infront of a wildly applauding crowd.

I havent felt this embarrassed since....robby ginepri, just a few weeks ago.

i propose, to make it easier to handle, again ADMITTING IT is the key. It will take away the humiliation and we will feel cleansed. ALL TOGETHER now, we coria lovers & supporters, repeat:

"GUILLE, WE LOVE YOU. BUT YOU WENT OUT THERE AND GOT YOUR ASS KICKED BY A WORTHLESS 2-PENNY PUNK. HE BEAT YOU AND BEAT YOU AND BEAT YOU. NOW, COME IN SO WE CAN FEED YOU SOME NICE WARM SOUP AND GIVE YOU A HUG."

I don't see any embarassment in losing a five-setter to Robby Ginepri on his best surface? It was a great match.

Did you have to mention pouring maggots down throats when I'm about to eat my evening meal

Anyway - seriously - I think the main problem here was under-estimating the opponent. I read the Argentine Press most days - and all the players and media were so confident of this tie - somewhat like the Australians before the quarter final against Argentina Beck isn't a great player, but he is one of these solid ones who occasionally pulls off a surprise result, and obviously rises to the occasion when playing for his country - just like his fellow Slovak Hrbaty does. I didn't see the match so I won't comment on whether Coria was "schooled" or not - I was planning to go at one time, but had to cancel for various personal reasons so could only follow it on live score. However, although I never hide my hearty dislike of Coria here, I somewhat doubt he was "schooled" - he doesn't give up easily and it's not as though he was bagelled or anything. I do think he has some serious psychological problems on court nowadays though - far too many double faults in his game from what I can tell - and a failure to perform on the big stage that wasn't in his game 2 years ago,

thanks rosie. i expected a bigger from you, so for not kicking a horse when hes down.

i thought it was rather big of me to report this, since no one had mentioned it, and wanted to admit cleanly the fact of the loss.

it is a SCHOOLING in that this is a match he should have won by easier scores than he lost by! It would not be considered a schooling in a traditional sense, no.

i know he did fight hard, but anyone can come up flat. and the crowd, from the little i saw, was already putting all their energy into beck and supplying him with loud crazed support, i'm sure he responded well to the environment.

I'm British - we like our "fair play" and generally don't kick a man/horse/tennis player when he's down!!! And - yes - it was big of you to start this thread!!!

ok, if you insist...then since losing to florian mayer in the semis of sopot on clay just a few weeks before that.

the dude is brilliant, but you've gotta stop to take some mental notes at some point in the year. put on the brakes and work out your inner-kinks before going forward. it cant all happen on the court.

Default Re: Karol Beck Easily Schools Coria in Straights.

I'm not embarrassed. We know Coria can lose to players like Beck on this surface if he doesn't bring his A-game. Things like this happen in Davis Cup, nothing tragic here. I haven't seen the match, but probably Beck also was on fire today.
It would be more embarrassing on clay, but not indoors in Bratislava. It's a bad loss, of course, but not so unexpected. At least not for me.

(If he really was overconfident, as Rosie said, then it's a good lesson. It's so obvious the Slovaks are a very tough opponent when they are playing at home, I can't believe he was underestimating them.)
