Ferrero really did have a stinker of a draw at Roland Garros. Coria, Gaudio, Agassi, Safin. That's dreadful! Especially seeing as he was 1-3 against Gaudio, going into that match. Not to suggest that Costa had a soft draw mind you, his was just as bad - on paper, that is...
I had expected more of a match from Coria at Roland Garros - that is, I expected him to take a set or two. But I suppose that Ferrero played really well that match, or he would not have said it was one of his best performance there. Of course ESPN was too busy mourning the loss of Andy Roddick to show matches for the next week and a half
Coria hasn't done much at the French Open, but he's gotten terrible draws. Guga in the first round in 2001, then Ferrero early in 2002. Hopefully he - and Gaudio as well - get some decent breaks this year. For the love of God, let one of them draw Roddick as their earliest seed...
Hmmm... I sense this is one of those matches that Kuerten would have been able to close out comfortably a couple of years ago, but which he's now struggling in due to the physical problems that he's had. He was serving for the first set, wasn't he? And once he lost the tiebreak, I think the physical factor played a huge part in that second-set collapse.
Guga was really dominating in the first set until 5-3, he just lost his concentration, like 2 days ago against Saretta... he said it's normal because it's his first clay tournament for a long time, and soon it will be like before... I think he's as good as before, it's just a matter of concentration..
I surely hope Moyke will win the match, his first tournement from the year. He is so good on clay.
Coria is young and indeed he is at the beginning of his career and if you are a fan from him i can understand you want him to win. But maybe he can win another tournement? But not from moyke. =))
