WWW RG R3: (8) Verdasco VS. Almagro?

I reckon Nando will. Given their H2H and that Nando's just probably too consistent at the moment, I think it will be in straight sets as well. 4 at the very very most, but probably 3.

Re: WWW RG R3: (8) Verdasco VS. Almagro?

Mugro's triumphant clay record against lefties includes wins against Decoud, Arthurs (then 35, and on clay where he was a muppet even at his prime), Di Mauro, errrrm, ......errrrm ..... and that's all

3 of 15 record at atp main draw level, losses to berrer, gremlin, llodra, nemo, lopez, 3 to nadal, and 2 to verdasco.

I think Nando in 4 but better for him to trash Almugro like chowdahead25 "said" to save more energy for QF with Nadal

Almagro might be labeled a clay specialist, but he's really just a clown.

Nando in straights.

wat.

Verdasco is striking the ball just as well as anybody else here at the moment - Almagro hasn't been in great form - if form holds, Verdasco wins this one pretty handily, without too much difficulty, in straight sets.

expect Almagro to win not more than 9 games.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
