Re: WWW Nice Final: Almagro vs. (Q) Baker

this could be an ugly scoreline for Baker, expecting 6-3, 6-2 for Almagro.

15 match-streak... Could he enter RG in a winning streak?

O___O

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Re: WWW Nice Final: Almagro vs. (Q) Baker

Almagro is a different level than he's faced all week, so we'll see. Mucho's power may be too much, but I expect Brian to take returns even earlier and basically go all out. Almagro is the fav, but I wouldn't put it past Brian to finish this week in style.

Re: WWW Nice Final: Almagro vs. (Q) Baker

Almagro is heavy favorite, but Baker defied all odds so far. Baker in 3 sets.

Re: WWW Nice Final: Almagro vs. (Q) Baker

Sadly Baker can't possibly overcome Almagro. Mugro in 2 but if Baker can come back from a set down again .

Re: WWW Nice Final: Almagro vs. (Q) Baker

6-4, 6-2 to Almagro I'm afraid. Where will baker's ranking be with the 180 points? (is it 180 for a finalist?)

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Happy whoever wins. Mugro rooted for JCF in Rome, which is good enough for me.
