Retired: Guillermo Coria

Guillermo 'El Mago' Coria

Coria’s career is tragic in many ways. He should have won the 2004 French Open and after that completely lost his game when injury struck. Not the most popular player on tour he knew how to win at his peak and if Nadal had not come along may have won a lot more.

Reason to retire: Back Injury
Career titles: 9
Career High Ranking: 3
Win/Loss Record: 218/114
Finest moment: Winning 5 tournaments in 2003 and rising to # 3 in the world
Famous For: Blowing the 2004 French Open Final and never recovering.
