There are some good signs for Guille though, he made the final here and it's not like he is getting caned like Ferrero is all the time, he can win sets.

Hope Coria can adjust quickly to the ice rink in Bratislava.

Vamos Chinese Clay.

was coria's leg injury a factor? it looks like the first set was normal and then something had to happen to bring coria's level way down...rafa's a great player but he cant beat coria by anything like those scores. Not even federer has ever come close to those scores with Guille. If Coria wasnt injured, I will have a whole new respect for rafa.

Well done, Rafa. The Chinese clay is yours!

I must admit that I didn't have much faith after that first set. Indeed, props to Coria for that one but what a strong come back from Nadal!

Come on Nadal has some of the biggest cojones on tour when it comes to fighting out matches, losing the 1st set is no reason to panic.

I didn't see the match, what was the standard like?

Congrats Rafa. Sounds like he wasn't playing his best but found a way to win.

I don't even want to think about Guille's leg being injured with DC in less than a week! Big dilema for Mancini even if it's just fatigue. Does he play Puerta or Gaudio in singles on Friday and then save Guille for Sunday? Or does it have to be reverse singles? I'm not up on my Davis Cup rules.

ok, it sounds like coria kicked customary ass and then the injury that caused him almost not to play the final popped up to allow nadal to look good. but they air it here in a few hours so i will see. If Nadal really justraised his level that much, again, :worship: to Nadal. but i doubt it.
