R2: Federer vs. Nicolas Almagro

Hey, does anyone know anything about the teen Fed is facing tomorrow? These are the type of matches you think Fed would win easily, then gets into trouble (young player, low ranking)....

Re: R2: Federer vs. Nicolas Almagro

I think he has a huge forehand and his best results on clay. That's about all I know of him - haven't seen him play, but looking forward it tomorrow

I'd imagine that Almagro will be a little caught up in the moment and might not be able to play his best stuff. But I hope so. Based on what i've heard/read, it sounds like he has a lot of potential.

Nicolas Almagro is very strong and has a lot of potential. This will be a good challenge for Fed.

Re: R2: Federer vs. Nicolas Almagro

This will not be like Round 1 at all.
I think Roger will have his hands full, but will come through anyway.

Re: R2: Federer vs. Nicolas Almagro

Big hitting of both sides from the baseline. A very sound clay courter, better serve than most of the Spaniards and he has the potential to cause Federer some major trouble. Often has major brain lapses though and a criticism throughout his young career is that he doesn't work hard enough.

I predict Federer in 4.

He is playing Roger on Lunglen court. Roger loves that court so I don't see any problems. If it was on Chariter then it would be tougher.

Fed will win 0, 0 and 0 in 82 minutes.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: R2: Federer vs. Nicolas Almagro

The only thing embarrassing tomorrow is that Gaudio is playing on Court 2.

I am a bit surprised by how the FO people schedule their matches.
One would assume that the #1s and the defending champs would
generally be considered for the biggest court, but I guess not.
As long as Fed loves to play in Lenglen more than in Chatrier, I have no problem at all.

But Gaudio in Court 2?

FEDERER 17 & Counting (fingers crossed)

Re: R2: Federer vs. Nicolas Almagro

almagro has a lot of talent, been said already but hits big off both sides, good serve, he has pretty good speed around the court, he can turn a rally around and become the offensive player in the one shot i think his backhand is probably better, he doesnt do anything fancy and not sure about his volleys and his touch. but a very good player and if he plays well he will give roger a match.
