Coria completely and totally OWNS the other Argies. He's something like 324234093284293-2 against them. Only Chela and Gaudio have beaten him (once each) and that was back when he was 12.. or something like that. No wonder they all hate him
ohh ok i had kinda known about that story vaguely but i wasnt sure if there was something that had happened before that? thanks for clearing that up and hope they can put that behidn them...they are probably both professional enough to do so for DC sake..
Oh that stupid Gaudio is a jelous freak, because before Guille turned pro we all (argentinians) thought Gaudio was really great.
Mariano Zabaleta doesn't hate Guille, they are friends. Guille said in an interview that he really appreciated Mariano becasue when he had recently turned pro he gave him a lot of advice. And i've seen a lot of pictures of Coria and Nalbandian together, so i don't think they hate each other either.
i see 'corias_fangurl' disappeared from these boards some time ago...
so what's this about? oh, i was just dusting the old shelves!! i went back and dug this out...the very oldest thread on record, from 2003.
Chiudi-fan, I'm liking this attempt to catalog his H2H..."let's see... agassi, losing record...what about ferrero ...hmmm, yes, there it is again...losing record...well, not against FEDERER! they haven't played..." :lol:
well, luckily those H2H's have evened out more now!! (except for with federer of course)
and i like how the perception of guille then was that he always beat the south americans, and specifically argentinians. i mean...he DID but its too bad that has completely crumbled now. it was true...until the....FO-04.
...still pissed about that.
by the way, anyone SEE that coria/gaudio 03 semi? my perception was that coria was rolling, and had NO REASON to fake an injury, even though it happened suddenly. why fake an injury at 40-15 serving to get into a tiebreaker? and even though he lost the tie-break, guille DID ROLL 6-0 in the 3rd. its not as though coria 'faking' an injury time out to get a leg message can be used to explain the cause for gaudio's inability to get even 1 game in the final set.
i was talking about the 2003 hamburg match, but i have to say...that french open drama made me love guille more than i probably ever could. its a truly epic tragedy of the hero in classic proportion, especially because gaudio was so unworthy...as a human being, that is. i look at that match with great pride. there is injustice in the world, yes, and that is what we saw...but the first two sets & much of the third, until the french crowd performed that bizarre resurrection, was extraordinary art. what a fantastic display, and the closest to an 'honorary champion' an event could ever have had.
you know how achilles was perfect except this one spot on his heel? guille was that good at that moment.
ironically, i think coria's namesake vilas won 6-0 6-3 6-0 in the 77 french final, which was identical in the first 2 sets to guille's scores that day! but sometimes we must experience a victory from inside ourselves when the external results just dont fall into place. just an opinion...
Does anyone know coria's Head 2 head with Roddick? I think coria has never beaten him, which bothers me. i wish coria could get him on clay next year and crush him, but i don't think he'll ever get the chance. roddick plays almost none of the big clay tournaments in europe. and the ones he does play in, he never makes it very far. as long as he and coria are both seeded in a clay tournament, i don't think roddick will ever make it far enough to face him.
This thread not will be very interest for you, people.. but I really miss him and I'm really sad for him. I think the faith was so unfair with him. He deserve so many in tennis, but have not so much. When I'm thinking about FO 04, if he hasn't had this cramps, he was going to kill Gaudio...
Look at 3h 22mn 57 s
Listen the commentator, watch Coria's face, i "accidentally" rewatched some parts of this match, still heartbreaking :sad::sad::sad::sad:
Who thought a clay's tornado would come...
I really miss him. So much. For me, tennis is not the same without him. He was so special player and didn't deserve that faith.. Many of you may be don't remember him, but for me, he is always be in my heart!
This is my dream! I really hope for this. If it for just one tournament i want him to be back. He deserve it! May be one last tournament in Buenos Aires.. Please Guille, come back and show your magic once again! :worship:
