Re: Almagro crushes Verkerk 6-1 6-3

I guess he's using all of his PR rankings to get into the highest level of events in an attempt to get enough points to be regularly accepted into Challenger main draws (it certainly isn't helping, though... the best he can do is probably make the qualies of a Futures event, I think his current ranking is around about 880).

Verkerk is down to his last protected ranking tournament at RG...

It's time to retire or go to the smaller tournaments

Well he did win two tournaments in his career so that would make him a three hit wonder.

His losses are not surprising after a 2,5 year injury period. Hope he makes it back to a reasonable level but the odds of that aren't very good.

I want to see him back to a good level, top 100. But it doesnt seem likely. Im also watching gaudio right now who is barely moving, how depressing.

I'm afraid the guy is done... it looks to me as if he's been hugely overrating himself. That one RG final must've done things to his head.

Sad.
