Valencia SF: Almagro def Korolev 6-1 6-4

The streak continues for Mucho in Valencia.

Good week for Korolev and he will be able to build on this, as long as he doesn't get injured.

Mucho was very good today.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Korolev's level didn't really change. He was average in the first and average in the second. Almagro was very good in the first and did enough to get the job done in the second. His good year and his Valencia winning streak continue.

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

Mugro will not get a better chance to beat Ferrer than he has tommorow.

Didn't see it - is Korolev still trying to kill everyone in his sight with a tennis ball?

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

Almagro = The 2nd best clay courter in the world.

Bit hard to do that, when Mucho was serving too well and this match in hand pretty much after the 2nd game.

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".

Mucho didn't even let the Russian breathe until 6-1 3-1 in the first....firing 10 aces and wrapping up the match just inside an hour. Expect a tough fight against hometown fave Ferrer tomorrow, vamos Mucho!!!!

Go Nole, Almagro, Rafa & Qureshi/Bopanna!

Yippiekiyay Nico! Time to beat Ferrer for the first time now, and avenge the spanking from the final in Båstad last year.

Almagro serves so well on clay and can dominate serve games which is of course hard to do and very few players do it. .
