Almagro def. Hajek 6:2 6:1

16 aces on clay, no BPs faced. Impressive. Hope he's gonna have even better claycourt season than last year

It can be hoped that he will be a force in the second week of RG which was expected last year but not delivered.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Almagro looking impressive again in the clay season, one to watch & avoid if your a player.

Hajek has been demolished again. What a surprise.

Almagro could definately be a major force this year but he'll have to play more consistently than he did in South America. Potentially, he's a top 5 dirt baller.

Re: Almagro def. Hajek 6:2 6:1

He's defending champion here so he needs a good week - and lets hope 12 months on he makes more of a general impact on the clay - QFs to Federer in Rome was his best showing in an otherwise pretty low-key season last year, and losing to Blake at RG - oh dear.

Re: Almagro def. Hajek 6:2 6:1

anyone who draws hajek can expect a result like this.

if almagro sorted his attitude out a bit more he can really be on of the great clay players and he would be more liked as well

16 aces in 7 service games (2.28 aces per game) - that's impressive
The Pim-Pim's record of 51 aces = 2.21 aces per game

He engaged in a macho competition with Blake to prove that he can outhit him, then deservedly lost. It is a question of maturing for him, he can certainly be dangerous for everybody if he becomes more mature.

Re: Almagro def. Hajek 6:2 6:1

Hajek...? Who?!

Haha. Only joking. Darn, I wish the scoreline was the other way around. I hate this Almagro punk. Fingers crossed for early losses in MC, Rome, Hamburg and RG.

Not that low-key considering he climbed almost 40 ranking spots in the clay season last year.

Exactly what I was thinking, He could be very,very dangerous at roland garros, especially as an unseeded floater. Wouldnt federer and nadal like to avoid this guy.
