Question Is Coria Faking His Injury

It looks like Andy is mad because he is being outplayed in the first set tiebreak (curretnly 6-2 Coria) and at one point when Coria won a point, Andy put his hand on his hips as if to question whether Coria had a back spasm (which was the injury that was bothering him)

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I don't think Andy put his hands on his hips like he was questioning the injury...It was more like "you got to be kidding me, I can't believe that shot", kinda thing.

I think there was a back spasm but not as bad as Coria might have thought. Regardless Andy needs to FORGET about Coria and play the DARN BALL.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Exclamation

Don't get me wrong, I don't think he is faking the injury' he was on the ground for about 10 minutes being massaged and while he was playing a point before the timeout, he doubled over in pain.

I thought this was poor sportsmanship of Andy. Coria was clearly playing gingerly. 90mph serves? c'mon.

Andy was being outplayed. He is the one spraying all those balls all over the place. lol Coria is making him look big and clumsy.

They gave the guy anit-inflammatory and pain reliever...it's supposed to get better, yeah?

Is the final best of 5 sets?

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Uhm....the hand on hip is Andy's pose for 'You've got to be kidding me' if you all think Andy is questioning it, then you are coming to an erroneus conclusion.

I think the final is the best out of 5 sets....so we'll see what happens.

It was both...it was obviously a concern with Gilbert screaming at Andy from the stands that there is nothing wrong with Coria and to play.
