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

Well done Almagro

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".

Serve made the difference.

Great effort from Pippo, he deserved more of this.

El Cabezon wins his 3rd title in Brazil, he must love the ladies there. This is where he peaks.

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

While I won't be able to watch this match until Tennis Channel airs it in the middle of the night, I have to say that when I saw on the scoreline it was Almagro 5-4 on serve in the third, I was reasonably certain Volandri would not win that game regardless of how well he's likely served this week.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

Easy points for Magro, could have won it a lot sooner if he'd actually tried to rally on return in the previous set and a half.

One of the best ATP's crowds nearly 10 thousand people for an ATP 250 final and SF only behind GS anf a few MS suchs as Indian well and Miami that fit a bit over 10k people. Brazil should soon, host bigger tournaments, there is much demand for it, many people that love tennis in Sao Paulo.

You're crazy! After what happened in the Quarters, Sao Paolo needs to be cancelled
Even in Zimbabwe people love tennis, but this doesn't mean they deserve great tournaments.

Haha, have you seen Italian crowds when there is an Italian Playing? I remember Bellucci vs Lorenzo last year, they booed Bellucci like crazy every time he wanted to check the lines etc. almost as if it was a GS final atmoshpere and it was 1 round against a Challenget player.

Yesterday was one incident, out of the whole tournament. You can't generalize based on 1 match. Stop being ignorant and making radical statements.

Almagro with 11 Clay titles wins.. second behind Nadal in this Era (in terms of clay titles) ?

Alamgro served to big in the 3rd set and Volandri was dead-tired after the second set.
