Valencia QF: Nico "Mr. Valencia" Almagro def Juan Monaco 6-3 6-2

Mucho continues his streak in Valencia to 16 wins in a row. He really didn't have to do that much today, but good to see his strong form on clay is continuing.

Pico wasn't really there today, now it's time to prepare for Monte Carlo.

Mucho will play either Korolev or Haase.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nicolas "Mucho" Almagro destroys Juan "Pico" Monaco, 6-3 6-2

Very windy conditions and Pico was very uncomfortable and upset out there while Mucho was just playing the best he could given the situation.

Time to rest for Pico and hopefully have a good showing in the coming TMS events.

Mucho will likely win the title and make it 3 in a row now.

Almagro keeps rolling along. God he loves this place.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Yes, I forgot he qualified to win his 1st title in Valencia. The wind was gusty at times, but hope Mucho can perform at the bigger clay events now.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Now we know why Rafa ducks Valencia. This Almagro is nice.

We have seen Almagro impress before at smaller events but he has yet to make a real impact in the bigger events. I think he is more likely to do it this year, his consistency appears to have improved. I hope it comes to fruition.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

A little surprised it was THAT easy.

Really is time for him to put together some strong runs in the bigger events...as stebs says, his consistency is a lot better.

Almagro's mind has definitely improved. From what I saw in Acapulco, and even that match against Youzhny, he's found a way to stay calmer and more focussed.

Pico

Almagro is probably the best clay court player just behind Rafa at this moment. At least from what I saw of him in Costa do Sauipe and Acapulco. Judging from his results this week, he is keeping it up
