Marius played really well given the situation actually. The point is he's not ready for this level yet, especially after playing so much during the last days. He looked both tired and nervous, but still managed to play some nice offensive tennis (and risk so many unforced errors). He'll keep trying and trying until he breaks into Top 100. He's had a good hard season and is certainly more motivated.
Almagro played what was needed. He defended and didn't let Marius take the upper-hand in this match at all.
