If Almagro can play consistently excellent stuff - he could pull off a shock. But he can't sustain a high level for too long.
Considering Roddick x Nalbandian @ 1.83 (odds per Freeze)
Roddick has served really well this tourney. Monfils tends to lack consistency and struggled against Ginepri. I think Roddick will cruise through in 2 sets.
Nalbandian, 2-0 h2h with Ancic and looking good this tournament. He is very good on clay, people tend to forget.
I think Federer will show that he really is the 2nd best and crush Almagro. Federer is extremely good on clay. But not the best.
Nadal, no problems. Gonzo far too inconsistent. Not serving well. Maybe his shoulder problem is playing up
All straight sets I reckon. In fact I am taking a speculative small stakes parlay on all faves in straights @ 6.3 (Betfair, selfmade parlay)
