Almagro defeats Safin 6-2 2-6 6-4

Finally Nico is realizing some of his potential. Marat hurt his ankle after a break point in the third set, but he came back fine after that, Nico was pressuring him on almost every serve game, regardless.

Keep it up bro and take out Simon tomorrow.

Re: Almagro defeats Safin 6-2 2-6 6-4

Any reason why? Was Almagro's celebration a little too enthusiastic given the circumstances? I can believe it, bearing in mind he does have something of an ego on court, but if not then that's rather sour grapes from Safin.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Why? Was Safin behaving like a sore loser or was there something else?

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Almagro defeats Safin 6-2 2-6 6-4

what was with Safin refusing to shake his hand. Nico fell on the ground after he won and Marat shook the umpires hand and started getting his stuff. Meanwhile nico got up and shook the unpires hand and then went over to Safins chair and put his hand out and Marat just shook his head and didnt make eye contact and then the crowd started booing...

Re: Almagro defeats Safin 6-2 2-6 6-4

ok it was a great match, maybe some UEs at the end after Marat injured but he could move well so i don't expect it's serious
ok, Nico's performance this week has been amazing, i was there as a lineman and i was in his 3 matches of qualys and his second round, Almagro was close to being defeated against Meffert in Q2 and now is in the final and playing incredible tennis against top clay-court players like Ferrero, Safin or Volandri ....
it seems Nico is beginning to explode his potential, he had surgery at the end of last season in on of his knee but now is at his best
he will reach his best ranking next week
good luck tomorrow
MUCHO NICOOOOOO !!!!!!!

Re: Almagro defeats Safin 6-2 2-6 6-4

Maybe Dani Koellerer was in the crowd, telling Safin not to shake his hand.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
