What a great tournament for Baker but today Almagro was just too good, served brilliantly and played a great game all round, Baker had trouble keeping up.

Baker :worship::worship: for an amazing run.

Just as expected, a good serve gives him a hard time.

And Nico's serve just on fire today.

Well done Nico.

But anyone with a heart wanted Baker to win. It would make such a difference to his life as a whole. Almagro probably won't even remember winning his 28482428734th 250 level event on clay in 10 years.

Going back to the beginning of the week, no one would've said anything had he lost to Stakhovsky in R1. And he made the final and won more games against Almagro than Simon did. :D
What a week :worship:

expected really. Almagro is a class above anyone that brian played on this surface at this point(except monfils ofcourse but the guy was injured). Aslong as almagro played well he was never going to lose this

still a fantastic week for brian and i hope he does build on this

I hope to see more of Baker after this superb run. But I am sure, he won't make it to the main draws of any tournaments before the tail end of the year assuming he performs this consistently.


Realistically thinking, the next time we hear of him will be at the US open series. Wildcard at Washington maybe.

I think he might be given a WC to wimby.

He should really play Washington while all the good guys are at the Olympics.

WC to Wimbledon qualifying surely would not be too much to ask. If he wins a challenger or two, he could be top 100 by USO Series and get direct entry for a few events. But even now, at about 140 in the ranks, he'll make a lot of ATP qualifying lists, and probably make it a lot of the time

Would be typical Almagro to win the 250, and crash out in round 1 or 2 of the slam that follows.

I'm really curious to see how Baker handles the tour physically. My prediction, I think he'll be worn down eventually and fade away. I hope I am wrong but I am not sure how he will cope with the grind consistently.

Didnt watch the match,although I didnt expect him to win,this is a disappointing scoreline.
But an amazing week.Tough to say if Brian has some gas left for RG but that's not crucial for him now,he needs to stay healthy and then he can go very far on the ATP tour.

Mark Lenders
05-26-2012, 05:24 PM
So Almagro now has 12 titles and at least one every year since 2006. Not bad at all. Still a shame that he focuses so much on 250 and 500 tournaments, always thought he had what it takes to have good results in bigger tournaments if he focuses on them. Playing Nice right before Roland Garros doesn't seem like the move of something with ambitions of being a legitimate top player.

Great week for Brian as well, despite the loss, already playing at an excellent level. Let's see how he does in the next few tournaments, namely Roland Garros and, more importantly, how his body holds up and takes the rigors of the tour. So far, couldn't have been a better return to action.

05-26-2012, 05:34 PM
Mugro too good when he's not in mug mode. Should make QF of RG and top 10 by the end of the year.

Hope Baker makes top 100.

He won't need a WC for Wimbledon qualifying. But I think he will be on the AELTC's radar for a MD WC. The unfortunate thing is that he didn't too well in Wimbledon juniors.

Wimbledon was fast back then, current conditions suit his style much better. Being able to change direction easily is the new "serve and volley" of this era.

Mark Lenders

At this rate, Almagro could end his career with 20+ titles easily, I reckon, which would be a very good achievement for him. His ambition must seriously be questioned though; I'd like/respect him far more as a player if he started focusing more on the big events and testing his abilities there rather than keeping his ranking up by winning minor events.

His mentality does seem small time though; even when he has chances to beat higher-ranked players, he usually ends up losing in close matches. He seems to have no belief that he can be a top player (hence why he played Nice right before Roland Garros) and that will probably always hinder him at the highest level.

you know, its not to say that every player on tour wouldnt trade their laft hand for a grand slam, I am sure they would. However i dont think that players like almagro or mayer view these smaller tournaments as worthless. The top players probably do but for guys who know that , realistically these tournaments are their best chances for a win they aren't worthless/meaningless.

You go where you feel your best chance for a win is. I dont think nicolas truly believes that he has what it takes to win a grand slam

You seem to fail basic reasoning yet again. Almagro just won 250 ranking points, go look at his draw for RG and translate it in how much it would take him to get a similar amount of points in a best of 5 format in Paris.

And in case you still believe otherwise, there are hardly any challengers for Nadal/Djokovic/Federer in this era as far as slams is concerned so there's no reason for players ranked a bit lower to think that they might have to schedule wisely in order to not expend precious energy that would impede them from dethroning the Top3-4 in the world.

They, unlike tennis fans, know the hierarchy of tennis in this generation very well and have realistic expectations to what they can do at every tournament.
Almagro will probably play 3 more matches next week with a spare day in between them. Plenty to recuperate and contend in all those matches in adequate condition.

The season moves on for the players, no matter what you picked in your fantasy draw challenge. That does not matter.

This is the problem. He has no belief that he can be a top players/do great things in the big tournaments. That is evident when he faces higher-ranked player; he has the game to push them but in a close match you almost know Almagro won't get it done.

I'm obviously not criticizing Almagro for not winning a Grand Slam, just for not giving it a serious go. He keeps making bizarre schedules before big events. He does have the game to do far better in big events, but his lack of belief/ambition is shocking for a guy ranked so high. If you don't believe you can be a top player, you have no chance. If winning tons of 250/500 events for the rest of his career is as far as ambition goes, so be it, but it's a shame imo.

He'd get 360 points if he got to Nadal in the QF, which is very achievable. Tipsarevic is his biggest obstacle.

I was not even talking about winning Slams, just performing better at big events. Almagro keeps deceiving at the big events, just last year he lost R1 in Roland Garros despite winning more clay matches in 2011 than anyone else on tour.

I'm obviously not expecting or asking Almagro to compete with the top 3 for Grand Slams, just to perform better at the big events and show more belief. His lack of self-belief is shocking for a player who does have weapons to be a very good player and who will probably be in the top 10 at the end of the season.

Well its also like li ching yuen said. These players are not stupid, they know there's a hierearchy when it comes to the bigger events. Casual tennis fans might not think anything special of nicolas but when he looks back on his career the fact that he did win several titles, made deep runs at slams and made top 10, these are things that i am sure he can be proud of.

i think fans of tennis and the tennis players themselves look at careers differently. Fans and people in here might not think he accomplished much but im sure he and other players will see it differently

i agree he needs to work on belief but being one of those top players comes with a mental edge. Even if a player has a chance to beat them there's going to be "oh my god im actually about to win against this guy" thing going on and it falls apart. The top players know this and use it. The problem is if nicolas doesnt have that belief by now he probably never will

Even if he retired now, he could still be proud of his career. He's done more than 99% of pros in tennis history. He has by all means had a good career.

He will be happy with his career, but he might regret never having a real go at the big tournaments (ie peak for big tournaments) and all those times he lost to top players from winning positions, in part due to lack of belief in himself.

He will probably be top 10 at the end of the season, it is kind of sad that one of the world's top 10 players has such lack of belief that he can be a factor in big tournaments, that he has a shot to beat the top players.´

EDIT: Had forgotten to quote this bit.

Yes, that's the problem. Yes, he does lack belief; he seems to think 250/500 tournaments is as good as it can get for him. Perhaps it's a realistic approach, but it does show some lack of ambition. Less talented players with less weapons have shown more belief in the big stages and got better Slam results than Almagro.

No it's not very achievable. Tipsarevic is the favorite should they meet in that R16 and in case he loses, which I think he will even if the match is a tough 4/5 setter, had he chosen to skip Nice, he would've lost much more than he could forgive himself for out of his beloved clay court season. That would've been a stupid decision for him, not what you're saying.

Why is Tipsy the favorite? Almagro is a much better player on clay, always has been. Clay is Janko's worst surface.

And yes, I know he's playing it safe by going to Nice. And I understand why he did it, just disappointed he doesn't show more belief. It is not a good situation when a player in the fringes of the top 10, who will probably end the season there, doesn't believe he can make it deep in big tournaments.

Tipsarevic is the favorite because he is the better player and at a higher level right now that Almagro has ever been at, clay or not. Clay does not make Almagro a giant of a player. It's still tennis, you know.

Not on clay, he isn't. Clay doesn't make Almagro a giant of a player, but it does make him better/more dangerous than Tipsarevic, who I think never had any great result on clay, not even on small tournaments.

I think most people expect Almagro to face Nadal in the last 8. I do for sure, unless Almagro bombs out unexpectedly like last year in R1 of course , curiously also after winning Nice.

Tipsarevic just smoked your beloved Berdych in straights today, who a week before did the same to your clay maestro.

That does indeed make me see the light and understand your point.

So? That tournament is a glorified exhibition, it's not like either of them were playing their best. For some reason, I wouldn't expect Berlocq or Soeda to take a set off Berdych in they face in RG, nor would I expect Tipsy to beat Berdych.

And Tipsy also lost 3 and 1 to Wawrinka in Rome, I'd say it's worse than losing 6 and 3 to one of the in-form players of the moment. More importantly though, Almagro has always been a better claycourter than Tipsy, who has an underwhelming 7-8 record at RG and never went past R3.

Looks like they both should make it fairly easily so it will be interesting to see, I disagree, but you are the resident expert on tennis on MTF, never once been wrong, so I should be pretty careful here.

I guess we will have to wait and see who is correct. Probably next time someone disagrees with you though, the best way to deal with it would be to attack them personally, not their point. :worship:

Baker, congrats on the final, nice result! :hug:

Playing Nice did seem like a silly decision but it might work out OK for Almagro. He won all matches easily and shouldn't be too tired, especially since his side starts second. He plays consecutive weeks in the Latin America swing each year and usually does very well. Plus his Roland Garros draw this year is very kind.

Please dont tell me it's played on olive clay. ugh please talk about Roland Garros and Rafa.
Thanks! :wavey:

There's nothing fake about this event, it's an ATP 250 event that takes place the week before RG in a city of France called 'Nice'. You can read all about it on the ATP homepage.

Thanks! :wavey:I wonder why Cleo does not irritate me more than she does. She must be among the posters with poorest tennis knowledge on the boards (an achievement for sure), but she does not light my fuse.

Maybe the coloring has a calming effect...

How is this not an absolute? "Tipsarevic is the favorite because he is the better player and at a higher level right now that Almagro has ever been at, clay or not."

Absolute would be "There is no way in hell Almagro beats Tipsarevic should they meet in R16". I don't think I've ever said that about any tennis match, or any player and probably never will.

Don't smart your posts like other members. I just wanted to say it's time we care about the important stuff and what we actually should care about. I am bored with this forum, it used to be more popular than this, now you just only care about tier 7 tours and weird matches that only few people care about. We should be talking about Roland Garros. If I make a real thread about Roland Garros it will be deleted, but if I make a thread about my bedroom tennis tour it will remain.You mean tournament, not tour. And you're talking complete nonsense. There are a million threads about RG already and more are on the way.

If there were no thread created about the Nice final where Baker's awesome run ended, it would be disgraceful.

Well done Almagro just please, don't repeat the last year's Roland Garros performance after winning Nice!! :unsure:

Baker, congrats on the final, nice result! :hug:

Great and unexpected week for Baker :worship:. Almagro has a good draw at the French Open to reach quarterfinals ;).
