The presentations went for ages.

Stop the nonsense about which crowd is worse, it had nothing to do with the match at hand.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Great backhand from Volandri to save first match point and awful forehand on second . nice to see full stands even on unattractive final

Congrats Mugro and thanks for Vcash Could of been easier.

Can't wait too see where Volandri goes from here...he's been out of form and sucking on challengers last year, he was probably thinking about retirement and now out of the blue this ATP250 final!

Re: Sao Paulo F: Almagro def. Volandri 6-3 4-6 6-4

Volandri needed to win this in two and maybe could have done that if he didn't start to miss everything from when he was winning by 3-0 or 3-1.
Almagro too good on serve in the third


P.S: Most pathetic ending ceremony ever.

Re: Sao Paulo F: Almagro def. Volandri 6-3 4-6 6-4

Almagro was impressive on serve whole week, he generally has pretty good serve, but i think while he was serving so good here are indoor conditions, simply indoor clay is probably best possible combination to play for Almagro. Clay is his best surface and if we compare him indoors and outdoors simply he likes indoor much more with no wind he can serve and go for winners in rallies much better, also outdoors it is more difficult to handle topspin on clay- and he is playing 1H BH.

A clay title every year for the seven years (since and including 2006). Go Almagro!
