This is a surprising result, especially on clay. GJ MILOS!

Another Game for Milos

It is possible that he needs a bit of anger to maintain focus. remember the famous youzhny head smash. after mugro checked to see if he was ok and laughed at him, his level dropped and he lost the final set from a break up.

but then what misha did would be enough to make anyone lose their focus.

My God, is Almagro ever going to have a really good European clay swing?

Good result for Raonic though. Whatever may or may not be wrong with Almagro, I'm sure Dimitrov or Tomic would have found a way to lose.

Awesome win for Milos! They played last year on clay and Almagro beat him rather easily so whatever people say about Amalgro not playing good cuz it was his friend is rubbish since he already had beaten him before. I really hope Milos can at least take a set of Murray but that'd be awesome if he could take him out!

I find it interesting to see all the haters/bashers on here, Milos trains on clay you know, so it's hardly a surprise that he'll be decent on it.

does he train on clay? I know he trains in spain but just because spain is known for the clay courters doesn't mean they have np hard courts, he could train in spain on hard courts.

I've never really paid attention to what surface he trains on. I would assume he trains a bit on clay, but I would think he would train quite a bit on hard courts.
