Barna R2 : Almagro def Chela 3-6 7-6(4) 6-3

Chela was up a double break in the 1st set and served for the match at *5-4, but the chubby one couldn't get it done.

“ 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".

I'm starting to wonder if Almagro's body is too creaky to let him play his best, or whether these unconvincing results are just him finding his game after some recent fitness problems.

Sad outcome. Choker Almagro finally won two tight matches in a row.

Juan Ignacio

This mini-choking has becoming a little habit lately...strange, he was very strong at this kind of situations in the past.
I need a hug.

Again some fighting from Nico, great to see. Now we have to wait till the tennis comes. Too bad he is on Nadal's side of the draw...

Almagro really is favouring the hard route through his matches, anyway should be good match with nalby, battle of the heavyweights
