Coria praises Henman
Guillermo Coria
Title favourite Guillermo Coria expressed his relief after coming through a four-set battle with Tim Henman to reach the French Open final.

"What a fantastic battle," said Coria, who faces Gaston Gaudio in an all-Argentine final on Sunday.

"He served very well and took his chances. If he continues to play like that he can be a top 10 player on clay.

"I've dreamed of getting to the final - it will be a historic moment. Most important is that Argentina will win."

Coria said Henman's aggressive start had forced him to change tactics after he fell a set and 4-2 behind.

"If I hadn't changed the way I was playing, I think I would have lost very quickly because he seemed very comfortable," he said.

"He has an amazing slice, which makes it difficult for you to play. I was really in difficulty.

"But I was able to change the way I was playing. That's when I started playing better."
