But in the first two sets Nicolas Almagro was the better player, hadn't he blown so many break point chances in the second set it would've been a scoreline like 6:4, 6:3 for Nico.

Now go crush Robredo!!

Hehe. Left the match 5:5 in the second to play tennis with my dad and I told my dad Almagro is a choker.

How did Almagro lose this I watched only the first set and he looked to be in total control

Almagro had had very consistent results in mandatory tournaments in the last two-three years until this loss (and withdrawing from Toronto and Cincy). I had already proved that in one post some months ago, whereas the popular belief was opposite.

He's used to playing indeed a lot of ATP250 tournaments, but it's clearly for the money, in many cases he had no point to win there.

Besides, your two final criteria were enough for most people : Ferrer is not seen as an ATP250 specialist by the little bit realistic people however many of them see him as a pusher. And so on for many other ones ... (Verdasco when he was at his best was much more an ATP250 specialist than Ferrer)

useless old guy
