Coria at his best! He won that tournament without losing a set. Legend!

The same year, Monte-Carlo final : Ferrero def Coria 6-2, 6-2.
Everyone who can remember this match know who was the king of clay before Rafa :p
Nadal took over in 2005. Ferrero was out of the picture by 2004.

And the award for most random thread of the year goes to .... :spit:
You are silly. Too bad you're fan of Grigor.. Picture that Grigor is finished with his career at the age of 25,26,27? You'll see then, how I'm feeling.

Coria wasn't worth losing any sleep over. He couldn't even beat Gaudio in a slam final who apparently has "twice as many Roland Garros titles as Novak" (that isn't going get old any time soon). :lol:

This happened 11 years ago!! Seriously, get over it. You're still a young man. There's still time for you to find a new purpose in life. :rolleyes:

He won a 250 where he was the only top 10 player? Stop the press
Stuttgart was International Series Gold.

And Carlos Moya was top 5. Aside from that, it was a good field with Costa, Mantilla, Norman, El Aynaoui, Corretja, Schuettler, Lapentti, Zabaleta, Ferrer, Nadal, Ljubicic, Mathieu, Gonzalez, Grosjean, Youzhny...

Pretty damn good field, actually, for a post Wimbledon clay court event.

Moya lost early to some challenger guy? Sounds like a tank :p

coria was not the best player or most accomplished claycourter before nadal

but he was so hell entertaining

filled my tennis void after rios went into semi-retirement

watching this guy live was surreal and right now i don't see anything of sort being performed on tennis courts (maybe prime radwanska)

I have counted 12 players from that field still active in 2014 in singles and a few in doubles. Impressive. Really a strong and entertaining era back then. All those young promising players like Youzhny, Lopez, Ferrer already having some impressive runs here and there, something you see only very rarely nowadays. All we have now are two overhyped 23-year olds who just cracked the top 10.
