He was way off in MC too.

He doesn't try as hard when he likes the other person.. but kicks it up a notch when he has reason to dislike his opponent. (bageling berdych in IW after the AO fiasco)
I've noticed this as well and find it quite bizzare of someone of Almagro's level.

I thought Milos could only serve and sometimes on his groudnstrokes wouldn't be framed or shanked. Almagro must be like a beginner on clay or something...

Was going to say the same thing. That match vs Wawrinka, he was so weak. Definitely something going on there.

How could he ever? He's just a serve-bot, remember?

I didn't see this match, but I've seen him look overly relaxed and joking around towards the end of some of his long matches at the Australian Open.

Re: Barcelona R3: Raonic def. Almagro 6-3 6-3

It is just ridiculous how some people here are finding all kinds of lame excuses to explain Almagro's loss: He's injured, he likes Milos too much. He's beaten him before on hard and now he's defeated him on clay, he's owning him. As simple as that. Milos is a fast learner and soon, he'll be as good on clay as he is on hard - if he isn't already. He is just that good. Deal with it!

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

Expected, Almagro is quite awful against big servers and Raonic is improving quickly.
