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.
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)
SAFIN 2 and Out (T.T)
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.
