Australian Open R4: (10) Almagro d. (8) Tipsarevic 6-2 5-1 ret.

Almagro in a hard court Grand Slam quarter-final! Ferrer will be tough, but at least it's not Djokovic, Federer or Murray.

Tipsy, it's best of 5 so you're suppose to retire at 2sets-0 5-1.

Almagro crushed him.

Tipsarevic retired out of shame and fear.

Match ended on a soul-crushing short angle one handed backhand winner on BP. 1HBH prevails again!

A Tips retirement.

Has this ever happened before?

Tipsa at it again, Nico was hitting the ball massive though.

Too bad for Tipsy, but we have a Ferrer Almugro QF

Game over. Forever.

As I said earlier, despite the fact that Tipsa was injured Nico's returns were impeccable.
Serve was booming, groundstrokes lethal. I already noticed he went into this year with a different mindset.

Good for my FITD.

Tipsarevic really had movement issues . No way he can lose like this to Almagro otherwise

His movement was pathetic though Nico really hit the backhand well

Shocking round this is for the tournament.

Tipsy injured, Kei injured and most likely Simon not being able to put up a fight.

Putting Tipsy retirement aside, Almagro is playing well from what I seen from him, hopefully he doesn't bend over for Ferrer
