1st set to Almagro 6-3.
Nico won the first 11 points then JC won the next nine. The momentum shifted back and forth a bit but Nico upped his game and won the final three games.... His shots are weightier and JC may be a tad tired. But his drop shots are great.
It was raining at the beginning of the match and the court looks heavy.
JC serving *1-2 in the 2nd set...
