WWW DC SF: Almagro v. Isner

Discuss! I go with Almagro, he's better claycourter even if Isner had some good wins on clay this spring.

Almagro. Much better claycourter, home advantage and should have the edge if it goes into a decider

Re: WWW DC SF: Almagro v. Isner

Two of the best servers this season. Might see some close sets...probably 1-2 tiebreaks at least

Got to go with Isner. Looked strong in DC this year and if you can defeat Feds on clay in Switzerland you can defeat Mugro in Spain.

Is this even notable?

The best being Tsonga probably, who has achieved barely anything on the surface.

All serve mug, non-existent backhand, garbage forehand = disgusting player for me.

yea his only other victory that came remotely close was against this mug named Roger Federer who has only 17 grand slams and 6 year end championships.
too bad almagro on clay is better than federer on clay because he has so many more roland garros finals and atp masters 1000 clay finals

sucks to be isner, he'll clearly tank this match 60 76 60

Since when was his victory over Federer in February in Spring?

This is the umpteenth time you've responded to one of my posts with an intended smart answer only to be incorrect.

Re: WWW DC SF: Almagro v. Isner

Almagro to take out the trash. Isner is an all serve mug who lacks the proper movement and his shots lack sufficient topspin to maintain a steady and error free game on clay courts. Mugro is a good clay courter and has the home advantage. Mugro in straights.

Have an edgy feeling Almugro will fuck this up as usual

Re: WWW DC SF: Almagro v. Isner

Mugro must win this and stop S.Bot Isner V2.1

Mugro in 5

28/05/2016 - The day which proved that Tennis is RIGGED


The game is completely rigged against Federer. Nadal was supposed to be the trojan horse to overtake Federer, but the elites of tennis changed their mind in early 2012 to Djokovic. If you understand that, then you will understand why modern tennis is completely fixed for Djokovic to win.

If you want to read my entire theory, check here as I'm not allowed to post the truth on MTF: https://twitter.com/SunSeekerSlade
