Thomaz might have the worst volleys in the top-100.

Hilarious celebration from Almagro when he got the break back in the decider, he's clearly attended the Tomas Berdych school of how to win over hostile crowds.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Bellucci was never winning that tiebreak. I don't really like Almagro but he is quite good in tight situations. I did appreciate the rather subdued celebration too.

Awful crowd got what it deserved: an awful winner. Tennis loses.

Awful crowd for non-brazilians off course hah

This match was good on the baseline...Thomaz had the edge but those volleys wont make him enter top 20 this year...

Sky are showing the game where Mugro got broken in the 2nd set with the tag "Worst game ever?"

Almugro will choke against the first top player he plays.

An awfully big call to make post-Bercy 09.

WTF? Sure he's had a pretty easy draw but Almagro is a much tougher opponent than Bellucci IMO.
