Quality wise for sure, won't you agree? And don't counter me with a match like Nadal - Djokovic at Roland Garros last year, which is heavily overrated because of the drama.

He got one. And then he choked it away.

Never too late for a comeback of course, he's only one month older than Ferrer :lol:

That's the biggest heartbreak in tennis history.

Fully agreed. Fedtards tend to make Rome 06 the GOAT Claycourt match, but this was much better. It's a travesty Coria doesn't have a RG title.

Rafa showed what a fighter he is, looked down and out in the fifth but played his heart out

Nadal and Coria are the two greatest clay court players before Djokovic rises to the scene. Federer is the 4th best only behind Djokovic and Coria

Like so many others from that era Coria faded away at a ridiculously young age. This was pretty much his last push, being 23 years of age, mentally crushed by a lost Grand Slam final.

LOL, are you from Mars?!? How is Djokovic better than Federer on clay. Djokovic's movement is abyssmal on grass and clay, he simply can't keep his balance. Federer even leads the H2H on clay...Djokovic is not even in the top 15 throughout history on clay....

Anyway, I agree this one was one of the great matches if not the greatest.

He struggled with injury,missing RG since 2006.
Unfortunate for him not making the RG final in 2005 as he had tight battle in the finals of Rome and Monte-Carlo with Nadal that year

Yeah, I believe the double fault saga started then, which was related to injury.

Fedtard, admit it, your idol's RG win is the flukiest in tennis history

lol at people diminishing Davydenko's clay abilities. :haha:
VS Nadal at Rome :wavey:
VS Fed at RG :wavey:
VS Gaudio at RG :wavey:
:wavey: watch some of them and come back
I'm not diminishing his abilities at all, he was great, but Coria was simply on a higher level at his best. Davydenko never played like Coria did in this match.

You are funny :), aren't you. Should I spell out everything in my posts just so you are able to understand what I mean? His movement on clay and grass is in fact abyssmal when you compare it to his HC movement. Also, there are at least a dozen inherently better movers on clay, even from the current generation (Ferrer, Nadal, Federer, Simon, Robredo, etc...)

Keep posting though, at least you will manage to amuse some of us.

I apologize for this offtopic post. This was my last comment regarding this issue.
