Coria was born in Rufino, Argentina. He turned professional in 2000, finishing 2003 and 2004 as a top ten.

Coria reached the French Open Men's Singles final in 2004, but was unexpectedly defeated by unseeded compatriot Gastón Gaudio in an unprecedented all-Argentinean final, 0-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 8-6.
