He may be a skinny country boy from a place where streetlights are rare. but dont be surprised if Guillermo Colia takes the City of Lights by storm.
A visitor to Buenos Aires could be forgiven if, upon brushing shoulders with Guillermo Coria, he mistook the 22-year-old for an upwardly mobile native of the city's sprawling slums, the villas miserias. While Coria finished 2003 ranked No. 5 in the world, his sinewy, almost scrawny 145-pound frame, together with his squinty eyes, stringy hair, and taut boyish face, seem less the endowments of a budding tennis star than a street urchin.
