Monte Carlo R3: Wawrinka def. [8] Almagro 6-3 6-3


Stan wasted 3 MPs at 6-3 5*-2 & 1 MP at 6-3 5-3*, but other than that, he played great. Strong performance from him.

Monte Carlo R3: Stan mans it up against Almagro 6-3, 6-3

From what I saw, great stuff from Wawa (aside from being a moron on his serve-out attempt), whereas it was very much Mugro, not Magro.

Finally beat Nadal? on clay? in Monte Carlo?

Stan the man

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Stan looked really solid. Was hitting that beautiful clean backhand and came into net behind good approaches. Well played.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't play tennis.

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".

Really good decision by him to skip the most unnecessary event ever, Miami Did wonders to his form, that was the best I've seen from him since IW last year when he reached the quarters.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

These two are such a great match-up! I really hope Wawrinka gives Nadal a tough time tomorrow.
