Post Indian Wells R3: Nicolas Almagro (11) vs. Albert Montanes (23)

So, who will win this encounter. Both are playing well, Almagro more so.
Montanes can be unpredictable and play amazing on these courts, but do you see him winning?

I think Almagro will win in 3, but there's a very good chance that Montanes could win.

Discuss...

I think Almagro proved already, he is very good player (on hard court too.)

Never ever give up

Re: Indian Wells R3: Nicolas Almagro (11) vs. Albert Montanes (23)

I think Almagro in 2 is most likely. Montanes hasn't had a good start to the year, and his best performance was only QF in ATP250 Buenos Aires. Head to head is 4-1 to Montanes but 3 of the wins were 2004 or before and all meetings on clay. Almagro is probably a better hard court player.

No mugs here, Montanes has some skills and can play amazing tennis. Not a classic claymug.
Just as Mugro.

Mugro in 3.

Have you always been this ignorant?
Have you seen Almagro play?
He is a great player.

Montanes is small, but he is consistent and has some really good skills and is mentally tough.

Seems like these guys have haters, but Montanes is a true professional, and Almagro has really improved his game on all fronts. Expecting Nicolas to win in straights.
