Wimbledon R1: [16] Almagro def. Nieminen 6-7(5) 6-3 6-4 6-4

I didn't think Mucho could make it happen, got to give him credit for winning here. Great serve stats, 51 winners. I guess Nicolas' power was too much in the end.

The serve was a key difference here. Almagro served really well. Apart from the serve, Jarkko's game is more suited to grass but he isn't close to being in form. After the first set Jarkko didn't play as smart as he did in the first, just hit with Almagro back and forth instead of mixing it up.

An upset was possible, but sadly not to be .

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Almagros serve was pretty big and he just won the majority of the rallies, which was all that was needed

A win would have meant a lot for Nieminen but in the end Almagro was the superior player

Nice win.

If he beat Isner in R2,
it is already a good slam for Almagro.
