Re: J. Blake Vs N. Almagro
I think Almagro has to be considered the heavy favorite here. He's one of the best clay-court players right now, he's in great form, ready for his breakthrough. His backhand against James' will not be pretty for James.
However, James shouldn't be taken too lightly. He has been playing well on clay, even the matches he's lost, and I wonder if Almagro peaked a little too early in the clay season. James certainly has the capacity to win a lot of points, and I think the match will turn on who plays the big points better.
