RG QF WWW: Nadal (2) v. Almagro (12)

Can't believe no one has made this poll yet. Should be an exciting match!

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

Question is, how many games for Nadal? He could have done with a proper match to prepare him for this one, but alas Monaco rolled over.

7-6 7-5 7-6 to Almagro.

But Rafa in 3

Nadal in 3. Almagro has been very impressive this tournament though. Maybe he can get 4 or 5 games in one of the sets.

I hope Nicolas can at least give Nadal a test or perhaps even get a set.

Gonna be great I think. If I Almagro can keep his cool I think we'll see some very good clay tennis.

That's because most of these tools are clowning around in the 'how many game will Almagro take thread' , which is very disrespectful in my opinion, even if it is a more relevant question (which it isn't I think).

Another big challenge for Humbalitos.

PRE-MATCH INTERVIEW:

"Very very tough match, no? Almagro very good player no?"

POST MATCH INTERVIEW:

"I very very sorry for what happened to Mucho, no?"

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

I really think Almagro will be Rafa's toughest test to the finals.

Mugro could get a set here.

I actually rediscovered Almagro this tournament. I really forgot how exciting he can be to watch when his game is on. Always spectacluar matches with this guy (not even talking about his emotional outbursts here ).
