but when you flop that question to clay, using such similar skill sets, it is clear coria has a larger lead over hewitt on that surface than hewitt has over guille on hard court.
since lleyton wouldnt overpower coria on HC, however, they would have a very exciting match, IMO ...assuming a healthy coria.
hope people dont get carried away with how bad coria's serve is. he has been strugling with it since his surgery, but hopefully he wont always. worryingly though, tommy who had shoulder surgery too has has a problem with the consistency of his serve ever since.Raquel said:Lleyton's serve is a lot better which helps on faster courts. In the last couple of years he's been getting a lot more free points on his first serve. Coria can't rely on his serve to win him free points in the same way.
