Roland Garros R4: Almagro def. Tipsarevic 6-4 6-4 6-4

Too good Cabezon

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".

Almagro dealt with the heavy conditions so much better. On a sunny day this match could've been close.

Great stuff from Nico.

Tipsy started well, but Almagro was way too good...kept waiting for his level to drop, but it didn't. great performance

too bad he's Spanish...or else he could trouble Nadal

Almagro is the better clay player, so the result isn't a surprise for me at least.

Tipsy had his chances but ultimately he hits too flat for clay and perhaps could've played with better tactics, moving Almagro around more and sometimes wrong-footing him etc.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Didn't think Tipsy would roll over so easily, but the result was NID.

Cabezon was feasting on some pljeskavica. He was loving the heavy conditions pushing Tipsarevic around with ease.

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".

Why does he look like a douche when celebrating?

I just wanna punch him in the face, but i respect his serve.

Russian commentator on Eurosport said that this Almagro is much more of a threat to Djokovic and Federer than Nadal
No-no, don't say that the commentator is dumb.... just Almagro was THAT good....yeah..

Expected Janko didn't serve well like in first 3 round... After dropping 3:0 in first set it was over...

Mugro on fire. Vamos Cabezón!

Plus, it's always a huge pleasure to watch the fake philosopher in defeat

almagro played some great tennis against a dangerous opponent. a less than stellar performance and tipsarevic could have turned things around. its a shame he has to face nadal next.
