It is not the first time that Djokovic faces a Coria

The ATP 250 Belgrade quarter-final match between Novak Djokovic and Federico Coria will be special for the Argentine although it will not be the first time for the Serbian against a player with that surname.

Guillermo, older brother of the current tennis player, faced the current number one in the world ranking four times and was left with a interesting 2-2 in the history in which each one had to leave before the end at least once.

Those games took place between 2005 and 2006 with the emergence of Nole in the circuit and the almost farewell of the Argentine. It was for the first time that faces were seen in the second round of Roland Garros 2005 with victory for the Santa Fe from a retirement of Djokovic when the match was equal sets (4-6, 6-2) and averaging the third (3-2 and retirement).

Already in 2006 they met repeatedly. At the Miami Masters 1000 there was a new and resounding victory in straight sets for Coria (7-5 ​​and 6-1) but, later in the year, the first round of Hamburg (6-3, 3-6 and 6-3) and the semifinals of Amersfoort (6-2, 1-0 and retirement) they matched the story for Djokovic.
