Guillermo Coria turned professional in 2000, finishing 2003, 2004 and 2005 as a top ten player. He was one of the fastest players on the ATP tour, consistently showing great performances in clay courts tournaments.

Coria tested positive for nandrolone in April 2001 and was initially suspended two years. Coria claimed that the only supplement he was taking was a multivitamin made by an NJ supplements company. His family had a private lab test carried out on the multivitamin, which found they were  contaminated with steroids. Subsequently, the ATP reduced his suspension to the seven months that had already passed. Coria sued the company for more than $10 million in lost prize money and endorsements and settled after the third day of the trial for an undisclosed amount.
