Amazing that this Almugro is still in the tournament. One of the worst players you will ever see.

Anyone who disputes any of this is a troll.

Almugro should have won in 3, but as usual he just can't close an easy deal
he must be thankful he got an easy draw

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Almagro enjoyed that, his celebrations at the end were some of the most aggressive I've ever seen. Several fist pumps down towards the court, and then a clenched fist towards two enthusiastic guys in the crowd who wanted some reflected glory.

And to top it off, he didn't even look Becker in the eye when they 'shook' hands at the net. Becker must have bullied poor Nico at some point during the match.

I don't really dislike any players but this Almagro I cannot stand. It is truly awful to see him advance. Even worse, his next round match probably won't be that difficult regardless of who he plays.

Best Matches of All Time
Agassi def. Blake, U.S. Open 2005 | Agassi def. Baghdatis, U.S. Open 2006
Federer def. Sampras, Wimbledon 2001 | Davydenko def. Haas, U.S. Open 2006
Schalken def. Gonzalez, U.S. Open 2002 | Agassi def. Roddick, Cincinnati 2004
Kohlschreiber def. Roddick, Australian Open 2008 | Federer def. Nadal, Wimbledon 2007
Melzer def. Djokovic, Roland Garros 2010 | Sargsian def. Mathieu, U.S. Open 2004
Nalbandian def. Safin, Madrid 2006 | Soderling def. Nadal, Roland Garros 2009
Federer def. Tipsarevic, Australian Open 2008 | Gaudio def. Coria, Roland Garros 2004
Djokovic def. Stepanek, U.S. Open 2007 | Murray def. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2008
+ any five set win for Todd Martin
