I know threads like these are pointless but what the hell.

Do you think if he had wound up winning that match that his entire career would have turned out differently and he would have remained a consistent top 10er for years? Or would his shoulder issues and fatigue still have gotten the best of him.

To me it seems like all his issues are simply mental and that he'll never have the same belief in himself again, which is ashame.

FO 04 had no such impact as people think. Coria reached Monte Carlo and Rome finals next year, as well as Hamburg and USO quarters and Beijing final. He's also qualified for YEC

Even if he had won RG, he would still have seen Nadal take his clay court crown from him the next year, and it was here that his real problems started.

Coria played very well for stretches after that match. He played two awesome finals on clay vs Nadal the next year but got outplayed.

Bad Karma and he deserves it. Who the hell books a hotel room for celebrating a victory before the match has even been played. That's as cocky as you can get and thank God Gaudio pulled off a miracle and put him in his place. I just wish I was there when he got to the hotel and had to cancel the booking he had made :yeah: :devil:

yeah, probably not much different, perhaps a little bit. Certainly will always affect his mental stability and his legacy. And we all would have been deprived of great memories had Coria won the match.

The problems of Coria started in Us Open 2005 and in the semifinals of the David Cup against Slovakia , not in that RG , because in 2005 he played the finals of Montecarlo , Roma , Beijing and won the Umag Open and he was the only argie who enter to the Masters Cup with his points in the year , not how alternate

If I had wheels I would be a bicycle....

I think Coria`s problem start with Perlas and his idea of making of Coria an agresive player when he was ok winning with his deffensive magic ideas. Also make changes with the grip serve during Perlas era...

Hard to really answer definitively, because you are laying down a situation that we already know didn't happen.

I've tried to go over it a couple of times, just for the sake of argument, but my brain keeps coming back to the same thing- "What if..." But he didn't.

He had the title on his racket, and didn't deliver. In the end, he wasn't the one who went home with the trophy. It's the end of the story, really.

You could get caught up in a million different hypotheticals, until your brain explodes. We'll never know.
