    Hi,

    I was watching his match with Enqvist and was amazed by his play, this kid is a legend. He won in 48 minutes 6-0 6-1, he hit 1 unforced error in the first set and his depth, angle, control, consistancy and sheer finesse was a pleasure to see. You must know he is good, afterall this is coming from Ferrero's biggest fan, I hope I am proved wrong and Ferrero can maintain his clay court status but if today is anything to go by then Coria is a ded cert for the French Open.

    Come on Juanqui!!!

    He certainly was in fine form today. I didn't realise that Sky was actually covering this event and luckily was channel hopping when I saw the tennis after which there was definitely no more channel hopping!

    Two good matches today. The Henman-Spadea game was also good though none of the other players on show today could match Coria's brilliance.

    Looks like I'll be running out of HD space for all these matches. Ah well time to get a DVD burner!

    This is the interview



    THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

    Q. When did you start preparing for this season?
    GUILLERMO CORIA: Well, in fact, I started preparing last Monday because after my final in Miami against Roddick, I had to stop for a week because I had kidney stones.
    I only had one week rest, and I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to prepare this season.

    Q. What do you mean with the "stones in your kidneys"? You had to take time off? How did you cure it?
    GUILLERMO CORIA: I cured my stones by just going to the toilet. There were two stones.

    Q. Was it painful?
    GUILLERMO CORIA: (Nodding yes).
    It could have lasted even two or three weeks because what I had to do is drink a lot, drink a lot to eliminate them. Fortunately, they went away in one week, but they could have lasted longer. Until I eliminated them, I couldn't play.

    Q. It was the only physical problem you had?
    GUILLERMO CORIA: Yes. I was lucky because when I went to the hospital in Miami, they told me it was a discal hernia. It would have lasted five or six months.
    I went to Argentina, and in Miami they were wrong; it was kidney stones. So I was lucky it was just that.

    Q. Do you feel well now?
    GUILLERMO CORIA: Yes, but I still have to drink a lot of liquid because they can come back. I didn't have time to study because it happened to me.

    Q. Were you surprised it was so easy today?
    GUILLERMO CORIA: Yes, I was a bit surprised, but I played very well, very deep. My tactics were perfectly all right. I'm very pleased it went so fast because now I'm keeping physical condition for the next matches.



    This is one of those matches in which you can say there was nothing Enqvist could have done to win.

    Coria was just too good, brilliant.

    I'm about to watch it, and I can't wait. I love Coria's game. Infact to be honest, I think I play a lot like him. I hit with western forehand, 2 handed backhand, run A LOT, run down a lot, don't go for all offense, and I just feel like I play a lot like him. He is insane when he's on thugh, and I love his strokes, specially that dropper. He could win this tourney for sure, but Moya will beat him if they meet, so will Ferrero.... That would literally be an INSANE match.

    I'm watching the replay now on TTC. It appears that TTC covered every first round match. I enjoyed watching Henman beat Spadea although play was very scratchy.

    For you Guga-freaks. It would appear that Guga doesn't have a clothing contract still. He was wearing Head clothes and Diadora shoes. He also lost kinda quick to Skeletor.

    He was playing absolutely HORRIBLY against Schuettler. Literally couldn't make a shot. I could have rallied better than him in that match, no joke.

    PureCarlosMoyaDrive,

    I too think I play alot like Coria as I have the same build as him and I try to model my backhand on Ferrero. Now that Ferrero is out :cry: I will be backing Moya as I don't want Coria to take over Ferrero's crown as the king of clay. I also thought that Kuerten looked like he couldn't be bothered out there (a bit like Ferrero today!).

    Ferrero will be back!

    If you're such a hot tennis player, how come you haven't got an LTA rating?

    Ferrero, wow. Maybe he's just not feeling it so far this year. He has his moment of brilliance, but it never seems he's on full speed ahead in-the-zone. Hopefully he'll pick it up and get back to where he was last year, that was some insane tennis to see. I think he just needs to take some time off, but then again, this is the exact wrong time for him to do that.

    i thought coria was already king of clay because he has most clay court wins.

    But he didn't win the French, so he got down-graded a lot for that. Plus Coria never got to meet Ferrero to decide it, so that changed things too.
