    I have to tell everyone about this because I found it so entertaining. Hewitt won this first rubber in four. However in the fourth set hewitt yelled one of his patened 'come on's on a Coria error. Coria then proceeded to grab his crotch several times, prompting arguments among the coaches and the chair. Coira then smacked an overhead directly at hewitt. Hewitt hit an ace on the next point. He points at Coria and yells f*ck off. Throughout the whole set Hewitt was cheering Coria's errors and Coria was mocking Hewitt's 'veesh' and lawnmower celebration. Incredinbly entertaining match.

    It was!

    First rubber to Australia in this Australia vs. Argentina David Cup match.

    There is certainly no love lost between Coria and Hewitt - I wonder what is the history to that?

    It's a cold damp (no rain) day in Sydney and the grass looks slipepry. I think Coria was grabbing his crotch becasue he picked up a strain slipping on the grass.

    Davis Cup sure brings out the passions of the crowd. Both players excelled in the conditions...

    It was a bit slippery and overall the court was horrible. Both players were angry at the court and both slipped. Hewitt kept saying f*cking court and I'm sure Coria was saying something similar as he was kicking and hitting the court.

    I don't think there was any history between the players - Hewitt has a tendency to make a lot more new enemies than friends on court. Coria was clearly grabbing his crotch after the come on but then passed it off as tending to an injury after the chair said something.

    Very interesting match on many levels. Obviously these two players aren't exactly the most endearing players, but I must admit that it made for good entertainment. Coria seems to have this whiney look on his face. I'm not sure if he just is really emotionally tormented out there or if he's hurting physically.

    Coria often has an openly negative manner on court. It costs him a lot of matches. If you recall the monte carlo final this year, nadal thrashed him in 4 sets also - but not before coria won a 6-0 set, just as he won a 6-1 set today. If he could remain focused like that throughout the whole match instead of getting negative he would win much more.

    Got to admit I like Coria's game. But he's got a clay-courter's DNA: what on earth where his dropshots about? On grass! At critical times on clay a drop-shot is an offensive shot - but not on grass. The ball comes through to you skidding and trying a drop-shot on that is pure madness.

    But his lobs were perfecto.

    I thought Hewitt, coming off W as he is, showed great form. He mixed it up a lot - topspin rallying, flat corner shots, feathery angles, reasonable volleys.

    Got to be the juiciest match all year... and yes I did see the USA lose to Spain.

    ...

    On grass, the ball bounces so much lowers than on clay. A dropshot on grass isn't a bad idea. It gives you less time to react and to reach for the ball..

    Highly entertaining match... and i only saw the last set!

    Coria proceded to say in the press conference something along these lines:

    "Off court he is alright, but on the court I feel like killing him".

    I wish they would get into a fight, so Hewitt could smack the smile off Coria's face. What a little doping *******o he is....

    Coria is accusing Hewitt of being an annoying a**hole on the court... I think Coria also needs to look at himself... one of the donkeys on tour with the cheating and such.

    Pfft, absolutely. I've been close to the guy myself, and so have people I train with, and he's an asshat. Sorry to his fans, but it's the truth.

    I really want Hewitt to smack him!

    Coria Quotes after match: "He can be the best player in the world, he can win every tournament but he can not behave the way he does, abusing the captain, abusing the other players. I won't repeat what I heard out there.

    "Outside of the court he is one thing, but inside the court you really feel like killing him," Coria said.



    Hewitt Quotes: "I say 'c'mon' on the court and I don't think that is so bad," said Hewitt. "The guy spat on the court and he spat in the referee's direction when he wasn't happy with the court surface. He tried hip-and-shouldering me in the first and he complained the whole day. I'm not sure what his issue is but I'm pretty sure (it's all) because he lost the match.

    "Not once did I swear at Guillermo. I'm still struggling to deal with today what I did wrong. To be perfectly honest, he is arrogant and he lost the match today and he's looking for every excuse in the book. Not once did I have words with him and to tell you the truth I think he's a sore loser."

    hmm that pic on gettyimages kinda looks like he's pointing the finger at guillermo?

    He clearly swore at coria after that ace as he pointed at coira. It wasn't his middle finger though.

    Oh man, I would have loved to have seen this match. :) Coria is a little twat, Hewitt is a nasty little brat on court to the point of being entertaining in an odd sort of way, Coria is to the point of making one hope he slips on the court and fall flat on his face.

    Gotta love Hewitt for bringing "bad blood" back to the men's game. Very Johnny Mac, I must say.

    I hope he spits at Roddick and Andy clocks him. :D

    This is exactly what tennis needs. Bad blood, high tension, explicit gesturing, all of it is finally coming to the tennis court. People love this kind of drama, especially when it's coupled with the high quality tennis that both Coria and Hewitt can play. Awesome.

    The Tennis Channel finally paid off for me. Fantastic match. It was very entertaining and they were both playing at a high level. I didn't know Coria could volley so well. I never liked Hewitt, but after this match he showed a lot of fire and that's what I like to see. We need more of this in tennis. Make these matches more personal.

    Hmmm.. are you not suppose to celebrate on your opponent's error? My friend does it to me all the time.. If so, I'm about to give him a beatdown the next time he does it.

    And oh yea, with all the happening, did Hewitt and Coria shake hands at the end?

    The match was disgraceful, nothing but a spiteful display of un-sportsmanship behavior on both parts. Yesterdays match did more harm to the true meaning of Davis Cup and more importantly to tennis as a game. Where were the Davis Cup officials during the match????

    A difference of opinion

    TheGreatBernie -
    Haka Boy -
    It'll be interesting to see when this thread finishes which side majority opinion falls on.
    1. It was amazingly involving and exciting.
    2. They both behaved in an un-tennis-like manner.
    But is it un-Davis Cup like? I've certainly seen a few ties v. Australia where the fans, opposing coach and entourage have done things previously unimaginable on a tennis court and, to take Hewitt out of the equation, with Rafter/Phillippoussis/Woodies playing. One of them being the last time Aust. played in Buenos Aires, where actual intimidation from crowd and entourage was a factor in the 5-0 Arg. victory. Very much worse than this.

    Do you claim to know the TRUE meaning of Davis Cup and Tennis? You got some balls there fella. Maybe you just like to sit on the high horse and tell us "like it is" huh? Well, you ever heard of the value of entertainment?

    Nalbandian just closed out the 4th set 6-2 to make the tie 1-1.

    i cant wait for the doubles featuring hewitt and nalbdandian, i think arthurs will keep it cool but and there wont be too many fireworks, that is my gut feel.

    nalbandian just tried to hose down all the issues saying the crowd is great and complimenting the aussies. It seems Coria has started all this basically i feel, lleyton hadn't done anything out of the ordinary, his fist pumps are nothing new.

    can we start a poll saying who do you think started and incited it all and is at fault??

    So many people get so worked up over Hewitt. Sheesh. He's a fiery guy and he shows it, especially during Davis Cup. I don't see what the problem is. Sure, he goes over the line sometimes but it isn't often. He's honest and open about who he is, and he leaves his heart out there. Very competitive, very intense.

    You have to be able to keep your head about you and match his effort out there or chances are, you're gonna lose and you're gonna get your behind kicked if you put in a half-baked effort. The guys who let this stuff bother them so much are the ones who don't concentrate enough on the task at hand.

    And someone mentioned how they wished that Federer was on Argentina's team...Seems to me that Federer is one of the only guys who isn't bothered by Hewitt's antics. You won't see him whine and complain about how Hewitt is "agressive", and isn't a "gentleman".

    If players can't take Hewitt's antics, there is always knitting. ;)
