    After the scare against Youzhny, Agassi will come out focused and determined. The courts are playing slower, more like Miami, and that will help Andre as will the heat. Coria is just not a good enough hard-court player yet. Agassi crusheds Guillermo 6-2, 6-2.

    Let's not make such bold statements. Should be a tough test fr or Andre. Hope he stays away from the backhand.

    Agassi. He's better on hard courts than Coria and he appears focussed. Should be straight sets.

    I'm going for Coria, tight first set with Coria beating Agassi in the second.

    7-5, 6-2

    Agassi in straights

    Although Coria does have an impressive grand slam victory over Agassi, he hasn't taken a set from Agassi in 3 hardcourt matches..Agassi in straights

    I'm predicting a lot of forehand to forehand rallies, with Agassi getting the best of it. Coria's wheels are scary, though. Only way Agassi can go backhand to backhand will be off a cross-court forehand to pull Coria off the court. Even then, he'll have to be quick to cover Coria's down the line backhand.

    I think Agassi should be able to pull this one out, but it will probably be tight. I'm thinking 7-6;6-4.

    I'm picking Coria, for some strange reason.

    I must be a smacktard.

    What happened to that story about Coria testing positive for nandrolone again?

    I think I'll start another rumour. I heard from a guy who is very high up in the French tennis federation that Mauresmo is biologically a man.

    You heard it here first. Martina Hingis was actually only 50% correct in her allegation that Amelie was "half a man".

    Let's start another rumor: Fat Boy is actually a turnip impersonating a person.

    Coria will take him out. In 3 Matches that they played on hard, Coria was injured in 2 of them. The other time he just started playing on tour. I think it will be close but will get the best of Agassi who is not at his best clearly.

    Slight digression, and no slanted reference to this nandralone rumour, but watching Coria against Grosjean, Coria seemed way taller than I remebered him ... this was in a bar, so possibly the magic amber fluid was already working better than I had planned.

    AA is usually a very strong starter. My guess is AA will win in straights, with the 1st set rather quickly (6-2) and a tight 2nd set (7-5).

    Coria wins it. My coach said that he watch Coria practice this week, and he was so insanely good off the ground, even on hardcourt. I say like Liam, that Coria wins a right first set, maybe a tie-break, then runs away sort of in the second. He'll just get into a rhythm, and blow Agassi away. If he loses the first set, I still see him to come back. Schuettler did it in Toronto, Coria can easily do it here.

    I'd say Agassi in 2 or 3...most likely 2.

    Naturally

    >I think I'll start another rumour. I heard from a guy who is very high up in the French tennis federation that Mauresmo is biologically a man.

    What was the first? Don't you remember the short-shorts, where did she put...

    LOL

    THAT is funny, he may take nandrolone, but you have to check your poison.

    Bertchel, it's possible to strap your johnson to your your leg so it's invisible even with very tight pants.

    There was a TV programme where guys were competing to get to get up close and physical with this hot dame.

    The catch was they didn't realise that SHE was a HE, even though she was wearing a swimsuit most of the time.

    So far it's been pretty much toe-to-toe. 4-3 Coria first set. Traded breaks to love each time, but I think Coria is playing better right now. He's INSANELY FAST, and his groundies (specially that beauty backhand) is great.

    Ya, but I wanted Coria to win. He could have, but Agassi played tougher at the end of sets.

    Still though, I love Coria's game a lot more, he's insane. I really think that he truly believes that he can actually run down any ball someone hits, and he basically proves it. Some of those gets are CRAZY!! Coria needs to work on his rally forehand though. Too much spin, not enough power, short. Just doesn't really do enough with it. His backhand though, that is one of the best in the business.

    You called it. :twisted:

    And it's funny you all think that, just because Agassi is an ancient 34, that all his matches will go to a struggling three sets.

    He whipped Coria in two. There's reason he's a tennis legend, you know.

    You smacktard! Agassi's angles and power on his groundies last night were amazing, Coria just couldn't keep up.

    Coria's wheels don't bother Agassi, he likes making people run, he loved playing Michael Chang because he was a retriever, Coria plays right into Agassi's game, he is similar to Agassi in some aspects, but Agassi hits a lot harder and flatter
