Moya loses out to Coria in Croatian Open final

Sixth seed Carlos Moy lost in three sets -6-2, 4-6, 6-2- to second favourite Guillermo Coria in the final of the Croatian Open last weekend, failing in his bid to take the competition for a fifth time, having previously won it in 1996, 2001, 2002 and 2003.

Moy reached the final with a three set victory of the Czech Republic's Jiri Novak despite dropping the first set while the Argentinian overcame one of last year's finalists, Italy's Fillipo Volandri.

With five consecutive victories over Moy, Coria, for whom this is the first victory of the season and the ninth of his career, joked that he has become somewhat of a "bte noire" for the former champion.

Although Coria had not won a tournament since April last year, he has been twice runner-up in Masters Series finals this season (Montecarlo and Rome) to Rafael Nadal, who was forced to pull out of the competition with a leg injury.
