A very underrated match that he played in was his 4 hour 41 minute R4 5 set tussle against Zabaleta at RG in 2003, which was interrupted by the darkness and completed over 2 days.
Yes, agreed. Coria also had a lot of fantastic, hardfought matches at the masters series clay-court events between 2003 and 2005. 2004 Miami as well.
