That doesn't sound like bashing Federer to say Coria was closer to beating Nadal on clay. I think it's simply an attempt to say something nice about Coria. Coria should do better than Federer on clay against Nadal given his clay court experience.World Beater said:The thread starter is misleading but was it necessary to bash federer in order to prove your point. Coria has played nadal twice on clay. He got screwed once by nadal and beaten the other. Your analogy is not fair to federer since they have played only once.
