Indian Wells R3: Almagro def. Giraldo 4-6 6-2 7-6 (2)

Tough match but too bad it ended with Giraldo playing an absolute stinker of a TB.

El Cabezon didn't do anything too stupid, the classic over the top celebration.

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".

Almugro acting like a gorilla out there when all he did was push in the tb Pretty annoyed at Santi out there, he shows time and time again that he has the game to be scary good if he just had a brain

Almagro's reaction so over the top, I love it.

And yes, his girlfriend is amazing

Giraldo improved lately but he is useless in tight situations anyway. Some bad habits never changes. In the final tie-break he was done basically after the first point in which Almagro didn't do anything except pushing everything. Before a final set tie-break Giraldo's chance of winning it are around 20-30 %.

Re: Indian Wells R3: Almagro def. Giraldo 4-6 6-2 7-6 (2)

I love Almagro's overemotion. Tennis needs more of that.
Shockingly decent match other than terrible Almagro returning (he won 90% of neutral rallies, served great, but that service line flat return is a disaster)
And yes, hot gf.

Almugro looks like an elf, pretty amazing what being a pro tennis player gets you with the girls

Sounds like two good reasons why that guy is hated that much.

Love that over the top celebration. So bratty, yet so good.

Haha, nice to see El Cabezon is winning off the court as well.

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".

Tennis loses whenever I win v-Cash.

Don't you guys hate it when english speaking commentators are overdoing the spanish pronunciation? "almagrrrrro"

Do they know how to pronounce correctly? Giraldo is constantly pronounced incorrectly by umpires and commentators, with "French manner" instead of the Spanish one
