Stuttgart:Ice-cold Argentine Guillermo Coria embarrassed title-holder Mikhail Youzhny 6-0, 6-0 in a quarter-final rout at the 765,000 ATP tournament today. The lop-sided affair lasted a mere 40 minutes, with the French Open semi-finalist and Hamburg Masters champion winning 12 of the last 13 points. Coria came close to perfection with a mere six unforced errors. He won 24 of 26 points on first serve. He has now lost just ten games in three matches on the clay of the Weissenhof club. Coria now stands 26-5 on clay this season. The Argentine was joined in the final four by fellow South American Fernando Gonzalez, who pounded out German Tomas Behrend 6-3, 7-5. Gonzalez, seeded sixth, made sure that the 28-year-old Berhand did not repeat any of his upset scenarios earlier this week, when he defeated top seed Carlos Moya and followed it up with a win over number 13 Max Mirnyi.
