Nico looked pretty good from what I saw in the second set until he lost focus when he was up 5-1. He seems to have a habit of losing focus when nearing the finish line and will need to tighten that up.

Almagro should have finished the match sooner but a pretty good performance from him

Yes, Monaco. Then Andreev or Youzhny.

He should be fine until the QF (Davydenko).

That's a very nice way to say he is a headcase :lol:

Tough section of the draw. The whole bottom half is quite tough :sad:

Anyway, I don't like Almagro, but I have him in my Fantasy Tennis teams. So I am torn.

How original.

Lisnard looks strange with hair after seeing him bald for so long.

Of the players I saw today, Almagro was the strongest. But I missed seeing the Djoko match.

Lisnard didn't have much to trouble Nico though. His real challenge begins next round, though Monaco has only been ok this year.

If only for variety's sake, it would be good to see Nico doing more in clay season than winning small tournaments. He needs to make it deep into a Masters event or two and the French.

Didn'see the match but the result was expected. However, the next one might be interesting. I have a feeling that Pico will have a sweet revenge after that trashing he got from Nico last week in Valencia.
